We started out looking in September just went to stores and tried loads of dresses on, just needed to see what looked good on who etc. I fell in love with 2 dresses from the Jasmine collection L3001 and B2078 (http://www.jasminebridal.com/Default.aspx), im thinking Blue or Brown for their dresses, going with all deep colors for the wedding.

My #1 Choice..so pretty i cant wait for my ladies to try this one on! (seen in espresso)

For us small is best. We have 99 guests so we thought we'd keep it simple and meaningful.

Maid of Honor - Olivia (BFFFE! In Black)

For my Bestest I wanted to ask her in a special way, she loves clown tea roses, so i went to the store and bought a boquet with a rose for each month she would be my MOH. I have a key to her house so I "broke" in and set everything up, i had a cd with our fav songs on it playing and roses with little notes from me saying how much she meant to me, she has to follow the rose trail until she made her way into the living room where i was. I wrote her a letter asking her officically to be my MOH and gave her Swarovski earrings. It was a really special moment for us..(I'll have to find some pics to post)

Bridesmaid - Holly (future sister in law)

I wanted it to be special how we asked our Bridal party to be involved in the day (or year). Holly a HUGE fan of the amazing race so we did an amazing race type deal for her. She started out having to complete a puzzle and then had to find a series of clues and at some spots do an activity, each stop she went to had an envelope with a puzzle piece in it, when she got back from her travels her last task was to put together the puzzle (see below) and then she got her prize. Swarovski earrings for the wedding etc. She LOVED every minute.

Our Wonderful wonderful parents threw us the best engagement party ever in September of 2009. They had about 80 of our friends and family come out and all we needed to do was show up and look good.

It was held at the Renaissance Toronto Hotel Downtown, which is attached to the Skydome! We had the room with windows looking directly onto the field (where the U2 concert was being set up for! woot) The whole evening was amazing, they had signature drinks made up and Bride and Groom glasses (mine had a veil) they planned a slideshow for the 2 of us, you know the my baby pictures your baby pictures..upto all our dating memories and our enagagement! It was such an amazing evening!

We love love love everyone who came and made our day extra special.
