In our OOT bags we included this MadLib. Some of the responses were absolutely hilarious!!
I am looking for a multi-frame so that we can display them
Our Parents My stepdad & Mom, Me & Chris, Chris' mum & Dad and my Dad & Stepmum
My gorgeous bestie, Alex. My photographer, MUA, dressing assistant, drinking buddy and general bride-calmer-downer!
My brother, new SIL (they were married the weekend after us) and my yummy nephew Reef
My very emotional hubby - this is the only one he would let me share because the others are all very ugly-cry-face!! I'm not as heartless as this photo makes out, I was laughing because he made a comment about me always being so organised
Our vows - poor Stephon couldn't have been less interested once I had walked in !!
All of our guests - the one I have framed is cropped, but I don't have it on my laptop
Gorgeous Alex making her speech - she wrote a poem that reduced everyone to tears. I decided to share the photo of her crying instead of me!! (please forgive the attractive plastic bag - because its a National Park we weren't actually allowed to consume alcohol on the public area, so we had to be ready to run if a ranger came by!)
My gorgeous & wonderful sister arranged a lovely girlie day for us with our Mom and my two closest friends from England.
We had our nails done with some bubbly and then went out for lunch and a few cocktails. In the evening she had arranged for us to visit a friend on her acreage for dinner. As I walked in the house I was suddenly surrounded by all my lovely friends - a complete surprise!!
After a couple of glasses of wine it was time for toilet roll wedding dresses - I'm not sure why I ended up looking like Bugs Bunny!! It was slightly unfair however because the team that was dressing my friend Anna (on the left) had a professional seamstress, which is why she looks amazing and I look like an idiot!
After the humiliation of the dresses, they decided it was time to just humiliate me!! The ladies asked me questions about Chris and if I got the answer wrong I had to put a huge piece of bubble gum in my mouth - of course pretty much every answer I gave was "wrong" so I - once again - ended up looking like a complete idiot!!
After lots of hilarious stories it was pressie time. If anyone doesn't know, Chris and I moved into a brand new house last year so our back yard is currently mud instead of grass. These lovely ladies (and their husbands of course) put together a gorgeous gift with everything I need to get my yard finished - including a watering can full of 'seed money' to get the grass done!! They are such amazing friends.
Our ceremony site
My gorgeous boys!
Such a beautiful place!
Our engagement site
My parents and siblings (with a photo of my brother that unfortunately couldn't make it over from England!)
Duck face time!
More duck faces!
Before starting this Bio entry I have to say a HUGE thank you to the lovely Uhlease for helping me solve this part of my wedding. She went out of her way to find the dress for me and mail it to me here in Canada - I seriously can never thank her enough xxxxx
So after our ceremony, meal and sightseeing/photo trip we will be heading to a couple of bars in the town we are getting married in. My dress is not going to be comfortable, and I want to relax with our friends so I have bought a 2nd dress for the evening. What do you think??
(apologies for the angle - one of my boys took it for me!....and bigger apologies for my hair - it's being cut next week!)
I don't want a fancy style, I still want to look like me, but thought I'd try something a bit different.
I have made my hair band by sewing pearl beads onto an ivory ribbon so wanted to see how it would look if my hair was curly. (apologies for the lack of make up and general knackered look I have!!)
It's too curly I think, so I'm going to try for more of a tousled look using my straighteners instead.......
