K so the invitation papers are ready!!!! They're not opened Mondays so I couldn't pick them up today...so I'll pick them up tomorrow and start assembling them!!!!!!!!!!! Thats it for wedding planning news update AHAHAHAH
208 more days!!! That's less than 30 weeks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So not much is happening as I mentioned last week that there won't be much to do until I get the invitation papers. Still no sign of them!! I'm so eager to get started on them!!!! I hope to get them this week!!!!
Ed made me call the store where we bought our wedding rings from to ask when we'll get them in cuz he's dying to see them. The lady said it probably won't be in until after the holidays since she didn't put a rush order on them cuz we don't need them anytime soon. Makes sense.
Right now we're just enjoing the pre-season celebrations!! Tons of parties to go to already!! Can't wait til school is out!!! Ed just finished his year 2 examinations and he won't have his year 3 until 2011 so that's good for me =)
I've emailed my seamstress about the bridesmaid dresses but haven't gotten a reply yet...think I'll have to have my mom call her up and see if she's out of town...she was planning to go to HK either for Thanksgiving, Christmas or Chinese New Years....so we'll see.
Ed and I still have to make a stop at Black & Lee's to pick out the guy's tuxs!!!! Probably going to do that this weekend!!
Oh yes....We stopped by River Rock Casino's hotel lobby yesterday to inquire about our wedding night stay. They have really good service there!! The girl took us on a tour of the rooms we were interested in! We'll probably book something either by the end of this month or next!!!!!
We are also in the process of figuring out our guestlist....STILL!! I've emailed Mayfair Lakes about adding an extra table or 2. The room fits 200 people if there is no dance floor and 180 if there is a dance floor. I'm kind of hoping it will be possible to squeeze in 2 tables and make it to 200 and still have at least half of the dance floor.
Less than 7 months to go!!!!!!!!!
So I've ordered the invitation papers!! They should be in sometime in the next 2 weeks!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I also forgot to mention a few weeks back but we've figured out who's singing at our wedding!! We will have a quartet singing for us while I walk down the asile!! The group members are......Mendel, Josh, Peter and Brian!!
So right now there's not much to do with the wedding plans...just waiting for the paper to come in and then I'm gonna make the invitations. I'm going to have to finish up the party favours too! In January the girls and guys will have to go for their dress/tux fittings. Then in February I will get to do my own dress fitting!!!! March will be finalizing the dress fitting and getting the shoes and also figuring out the cake and hair/makeup trials. We will probably also have our engagment shoot with our wedding day photographer sometime in March...let's hope the weather will warm up by then!!!
So as my facebook status has been saying...we found our invitation!!! And I'm making it....or...I've made the prototype!!!
I'll bring it around with me so just ask to see it when you see me!! I'll be ordering all the papers in the next 2 days so I'll have them by Christmas break!!! I'm going to order 125 invitations worth of paper even though we really need only 100...but we need extra since we HAVE to send some back to asian and some of them will be in Chinese.
Also.....I've found my shoes!! Here's the link...
the shoe name is 'Evita'
So basically from now til the New Year it's all about the invitation making....once 2009 hits it's going to be all about my DRESS....too bad I can't post pictures of it yet!!!! The store I bought it from actually LETS you take pictures with you in it!!!
228 more days to go!!!!!!!!
Other than that...Sandy (my friend from high school who is also getting married next summer!!) and I went to the states to look for a dress for HER on Remembrance Day. No luck there either HAHA but we've decided to buy 1 veil and share it since they're all over $100...INSANE!!!
So basically from now til the new year it's just hunting down the invitation......Let me know of stores/companies that do wedding invitations if you know any!!!
243 days til the wedding HAHAHAHA WHOOOO!!.......that's 8 months!!!!
So here's another one of my updates!!
-I've met with the florist and signed with her (Amy Koo). I've also spent a bit of time discussing with her the changes in flowers!! She is able to be there on the day of the wedding to set up all the flowers as well!!
-I've been wanting to go to Wedding Things to browse through invitations but the store in Yaletown has closed down and will be reopening in South Vancouver next week. The only thing is that they are only opened Mon-Fri 8-3...which totally does NOT work with me since I'm usually at work during those times...but I'll see...lately I've been working a 9-1 shift so...we'll see!!! I'm hoping to have invitations picked out before Christmas so we can order them after the new year!!
-We will be going later today to secure the wedding fair price on the tuxes!!!
-I'm well on my way to finished our 'dating days' scrapbook!! It's like 80% done
