I can't believe the day has finally come and gone... It seems so unbelievable! I would love to live it all over again and try to slow things down but I know that is impossible. But, despite the rainy start to the day, everything turned out perfectly and I couldn't have asked for more! Please let me know what you think of the wedding pics we have so far. These are the sneak peeks we got from our photographer, can't wait for the rest!
(my fav shot of the day so far I think!)
(taking part in our photobooth)
This is the tux that all the guys will be wearing. FI will be in a black tux, white shirt, black vest & tie and a purple pocket square. The best man & groomsmen will be in black tux, white shirt and purple vest, tie & pocket square. I think they're very shard looking...
So this is my dress - the one in these pics is the sample dress, I purchased a size smaller than this because I didn't like how tightly it laced up in the back and I wanted to show the lacing a bit. But since then I have had a baby! I actually found out 2 days after this that I was pregnant so the timing couldn't have been more perfect... Now I am literally working my A** off to fit back into this dress! I tried it on a couple nights ago and it fit almost perfectly, I just have a few little things to work on and smooth out and I'll be good to go! Now I need to figure out how to bustle this gorgeous number... the way they did it at the shop I thought was nice at the time but now I'm not a big fan and need other options. If anyone has idea please feel free to share them with me!! MUCH APPRECIATED!
So because my ring was custom designed, we also had to get a custom designed wedding band to fit with it. Since we were getting something custom for me, FI decided he wanted something custom too and added a little bling to a Scott Kay Cobalt band. He will be the only person with such a ring because the jeweler had such a hard time drilling the holes for the diamonds he said he would never do it again hehe he has one black diamond and one white diamond in each section all the way around the ring. I have 2 bands, one will be our one year anniversary ring and the other is my wedding band. I don't know if I'll make it a whole year without the full set though haha
So since I started this profile, I have gotten my ring, we have completed most of the planning, I had another baby and now we are on the countdown to the big day! I have been going to the gym 5 days a week just so that I can fit into my dress and the hard work has paid off! I tried my dress on yesterday and it fits perfectly.... the rest is just the icing on the cake ;)
My jewelry is being made my a very talented friend named Jennifer Whelan who owns Savi Jewelry in Fredericton, NB (savijewelry.com) and I cannot wait to see the final product! I will attach pics of similar items. I have ordered a veil from etsy, and another talented (Candace Aresenault-MacDonald) is making my hair piece as well as one for my daughter Ryla. Check out the board I just made:
