Well it's been and gone. It was amazing, perfect, I couldn't have asked for a better day! Everything went as planned and it was exactly how I imagined it. I'm so glad that I am married to the man of my dreams :)
Enjoy the pictures. I'll post professional ones as soon as I get them back!
says goodbye for now!!!
well ladies, it's here.
Today is my last day of work, and maybe the last time I'll be on WBC before the big day!
I want to thank every lady on here for all your support, suggestions and well wishes. Being on WBC has made my wedding experience so much better. It's nice to have other brides to share plans with.
If I can get on before the wedding, I'll post my speech - if not, I'll post it after the wedding :)
I can't wait to get back on and post pictures!!!
It's all about you tomorrow!!!
I just wanted to send a big shout out to AMCS76, as tomorrow is her day :)
I know she's going to have a beautiful wedding, the weather is predicted to be just perfect and I can't wait to see the many gorgeous pictures she'll have.
Also, I'm sending her a thank you for helping me with so many little questions I've had a long the way!!!
CONGRATS AMCS76 - I wish you all the happiness in the world!
I wanted to post this today, because I have family flying in tomorrow and I don't think I'll get on here to post this tomorrow.
so everything has been worked out for the bachelorette - thank god! We're having the pre party at the hotel, my BM is all good with the plans - I love that girl, she's always trying to please me :)
I'm excited for it now - it's going to be such a great night with all my girls!!!
2 weeks left! I can't believe how quickly the time has passed. I'll be walking down the aisle before I know it!
Meeting with Marriage Officiant
It went SO well...
so we went to meet with our marriage officient (like a JOP, but just does weddings) and she was amazing!
She wanted to know everything about us, how we met, how long we've been together, what we love about each other - we talked to her for two hours! I really love the fact that she's completely going to customize our ceremony to us, and our relationship.
If anyone in southern ontario needs a marriage officient, I can send you her contact info!
The ceremony is going to be beautiful!
Wish I eloped
So this week has ben less then perfect, to say the least. I't been really busy, the FHs mum arrives from spain today, we have to get the house in order because all my other family com in a week and we have no time to do it.
On top of all that, My FH got some bad news. A couple months ago, he went for an interview at a place that is in the town we live in. Right now, he works about an hour away from the house. He had the first interview, and all went well, he had a second interview with them and they offered him the job! We were so excited! Let me give you a bit of background first as to why were so happy.
first off, his commute would be cut form 1 hour to 4 minutes - can't beat that.
secondly he hates the job he has now.
Lastly, right now he works a lot of evenings and weekends. I work mon0fir 9-5. So we see each other 2, maybe 3 times a week if we're lucky.
So this new job was going to be close to home, and mon-fri, 9-5!!!
I was so pumped, for the first time in our relationship, we would get to eat dinner together every night!
He was supposed to start in July when all the wedding stuff was done. He got a call yesterday telling him that the position was no longer available.... he's devastated... I called him and he was sobbing (crying) so hard he couldn't even talk to tell me what happened....
I feel awful... and I'm sad that we won't get to eat dinner together every night.
On top of all that, I think I've really upset one of my bms and I feel terrible about it. All my bms were planning my bachalorette. Someone told me that the plan was to just slep at one of my bms houses for the night. Well, my mum is coming to the bachalorette and she said that she wanted to get a hotel because she didn't want to sleep on the floor (my bm lives in an apartment), so I told her we could do that, no problem, so we got a hotel for the night.... I think I really hurt my bms feelings because we're not staying there - or having the pre party there (we were going to move it to the hotel).... I feel like crap.....
I'm having a really rough week, I've cried every day.... I wish I had eloped and avoided all the planning and stress.
Wedding Hair Style
Hair Trial success
So I went for my hair trial just over a week ago - It was great, my hairdresser is awesome :) and the trial was free!!! The day of it's only going to cost me $50!!!
The pics are up, but it's going to look a little different then the pictures. I am in desprate need of a hair cut (it's been like 8 months - I know, I don't know how I went so long either.) so I have no bangs right now and the style I want needs bangs. the first pic is the look I'm going for, the rest are my trial.
So the changes will be as follows:
- I will have the side bangs like the first picture
- There will be much more body and volume to my hair all over
- I will have subtle highlights
- there will be hair pins (swarovski crystals) and a green tea rose in my hair
- It will look neater and more polished

It's about time!!!
I know, it was like almost 2 months ago... but ehre they are - it was a great night, I couldn't ask for better friends - all my BMs were wonderful!!!
wow.... 17days left. Only minor things left to do, table numbers, assemble seating chart, that kind of stuff. A girlfriend that lives close to me has been an amazing help (we've been friends for a few years, but we became really close when the FH and I bought a house near her last summer). Wish she was one of my BMs (I had chosen my BMs before we moved). We're like a package deal we spend so much time together!
anyway, enjoy the pictures, if you have any questions, just contact me!!!
31 Days. Had my first "panic attack"
Ok, so Today I had my first panic attack and did not like it one bit! The thought of having anohter one makes me feel sick.
Here's the story.
Up until recently, my dress was at my mum's house. I bouhg it last march (as in march 2008, I know, crazy) but it was a great price and I fell in love with it.
Anyway, A month ago my mum brought it over. I tried it on, loved it, everything was great. But just last week a friend came over and she wanted to see it on, so I put it on... I had it on for like 5 mins, and I got really warm in it - I started sweating... then I tried it on again today... and I started sweating... Then I started freaking out (all by myself, no ones home - it sucks to freak out when no one is with you) and then I called my mum, complaining that if it's hot on my wedding day, I'm going to be a puddle as I walk down the aisle.... I was so stressed! I could feel my heart ounding, it was a horrible feeling. I was telling her I was going to ahve to go shoppng for a new dress (1 month before my wedding, ya right) and that I had to get a dress before next week because I have my fitting....she thought I was being rediculous, but told me I had to do what I felt comfortable with. So I decided that I was going to go shopping for a new dress (in any other situaton I would not have been this unreasonable?!)
So I was sitting here watching tv and decided to go pull on my spanx (well the knock off wal-mart version) and then put the dress on. I had decided a while ago I wasn't going to wear anything underneath, but really, who am I kidding - I don't want to have to suck my stomach in all night when I can have spanx do t for me!
So I pulled them on and the put my dress on. To me HUGE relief, it felt great - no sweating, not overheating and the dress looked even nicer then it did before :) I guess skin touching skin made it hot under my dress, but with the spanx, it was like a million times cooler.
I know, a long pointless story, but I had to tell someone, and I know you ladies can relate.
I do think I learned that I can't let myself freak out like this... I'm 26 and I'm going to give myself a heart attack if I keep on like this for the next month. Maybe I should take up meditation...? lol - Either way, I need to learn to relax....
Thanks for reading my novel :)
