It all began when I wasn't looking for anyone after moving cross the country to live with my sister and her family for a bit. After a month and half I met John and shortly after we were inseperable. He then followed me back to where I grew up when I couldn't handle that small northern town anymore. He proposed after about two and a half years on New Years Eve night 2007 right after we finished desert at a nice restaurant. It was sweet even though I hate restaurant proposals. I was totally suprised because I thought he was gunna wait another year to do it. And last winter we finally picked the date 12-28-09. We are hoping and planning to have a small intimate romantic winter wedding. Our day is on a Monday but we picked that day because when all of our family comes we can also spend christmas together, which doesn't happen very ofter b.c we all live far apart.

Bridesmaids & nbsp; Jr. Bridesmaid but in turqoise - same as blue in other dress
Here is the bouquet i am going with , the girls will be holding 3 large calla lily's with some greenery, and since flowers were under budget my florist is gunna make a snowman out of carnations, with top hat and everything so i am very excited for that, we will display that at the table with our eng pics, gift box and guest signing mat or with the cupcakes, can't decide see how it looks that day.
these were the bouquets i really wanted but dahalias are not available and not really any flower like them so that really sucks.
and for the outdoor pics i am thinking of doing this see diy pics for my attempt, don't know if i will actually use it though.
my attempt: we are gunna use the one with acorns in the bottom the flowers look really nice in the bubble area but the acorns go more with our theme.

DJ: renting speakers and mixer and bought a new ipod
Linens: www.tableclothsfactory.com bought brown satin chair covers and Sage green satin overlays, they are great quality and very fast shipping, only bought them b/c there is no rental places in town with brown chair cover and to have them from a close city would cost the same as buying them and this way i can sell them i'm done. for canadian brides too, the duty charge on 42lbs was only 15 dollars , unbelievably cheap.

NOT A VENDOR
Creative Touch Wedding Designs in Regina, SK
I did a review but for some reason this site deleted it, Sam is very unprofessional when it comes to her business when it comes to small weddings!!! therefore was forced not to use her business for my wedding.
