28-June-2009 I found out that the site and email have been giving problems. I'm sorry to everyone. I've tried to make some parts easier to see that your info has gone through. I'd really appreciate it if everyone could check theirs (or contact us to check).

Invitations are still a work in progress, definitely takes a while to get them all cut-out.

13-May-2009 Fun full day out. We have our The Bay registry all set up (still wish Walmart still had theirs), and went gift shopping. Also picked up my garter, and the final stuff I need for flowers (unless we need anything for decorations).

12-May-2009 4 months!

9-May-2009 What could be more fun then attempting to make your closest friends dress up in crazy looking dresses?
But we did have fun! And the girls will look pretty in their Alfred Angelo dresses (style #6553, in Glass Green with Pool accent).

22-April-2009 Random unplanned event - but we got our rings today! That's what happens when you take a different route, and see a "Wedding Band Sale" sign.

21-April-2009 Yay for our invites! Got to pick up the bases of them - now for designing, printing, and assembling.

19-April-2009 What's funnier than seeing a bunch of guys in tuxes with funny looks on their faces? Not much! But regardless, they looked pretty good.

15-April-2009 Who wants cake? Good! Because there's going to be enough for everyone. We have officially booked our cake with Home Baking by Carolyn - yummy! And you get supper too, because we confirmed our caterer.

And our wedding party is finalized, this is getting so exciting!

7-April-2009 More flowers.... one more trip and *hopefully* that will be all I need. Why can't 1 Walmart have all I need/like at once. Hate having to go to both.

4-April-2009 I Got My Dress!!! Well, ok, it's picked out... won't arrive til mid-August, but still!!!!!!!!! If anyone's curious, it's Cassidy Sarah style C900 (under the Richman Group).
Oh, also picked up my ribbon and bouquet collars/holders.

1-April-2009 That's it, no wedding. Haha, April Fool's.
Seriously though, we now have the rest of our invitation stationary! Yay, once the main part of it is ready to be picked up (later this month), we can start putting them together.
Also picked up some more of my flowers.

25-March-2009 We picked out our invitation paper/pattern today! Just need to find the paper we want to use for the middle. Yipee!

24-March-2009 I've got the first 2 sprigs of my flowers. It's a start - see it, need it, get it before it's gone.

Earlier So far we've got our date, location, colours, decorator, DJ, photographer, and pastor. Wow!
How do you convince a bunny to hop in a straight line, down the aisle, and not eat anything?
