we are married
We had a small intimate ceremony and bar-b-que last night, it was fantastic. We had our immediate family and our really close fiends. Went to a really nice park, near the ocean, the sun was shinning. It was fantastic.
The reason we got married yesterday was because it would have been my grandparents 58 wedding anniversary. They both have passed my gramma only passed away less than a year ago and we were really close. So we wanted to honor them. Plus my uncle was going to perform the ceremony in July but he couldnt get officiated to perform only one marriage here in Canada so we needed someone who was legit so our marriage wouldnt be false. We would have had to get a marriage commissioner to come witness the ceremony in July and everyone I emailed or called was already booked solid. So now my uncle can perform the big wedding ceremony. We arent going to tell many people because we are still having our second ceremony and reception in July we dont want people to bee offended because we didnt invite them.
I AM A MRS.
It is very weird to call him my husband but I am so happy we are married now one less stress.
Mrs. Crawford! I love it!
i will post pictures soon!
Engagement photos in
I LOVE LOVE THEM!!!
I can't wait to print them up and put them around the house, in scrapbooks and use them for the wedding. Not sure how i will encoporate them yet. But I am sure i will find a way.
here som examples of my favs
SHOULD I LET HER? OR DO I GO WITH MY DECISION?
OK ..HERE'S THE DEAL.
All the girls decided on the smae dress, Except one bridesmaid now is saying she NEEDS!!! MUST!!! have straps on her dress! I don't want her to have straps..then she will be out of place and possible look like she is the maid of honour (which she is not). i think the dress will look stupid with straps!
I say NO WAY JOSE!!! Should i just cave and let her have the damn straps- since i have to much stuff to be worrying abou tthen he whining she needs straps! She would have to get a seamstress to do this because they can't be ordered with straps.
question about ceremony
Ok so i never knew my father, but i have two uncles hwo have been like stand in fathers my whole life and i wanted them bothe to be part of my ceremnoy, so one uncle decided he would walk me down the aisle and the other one would marry us. Problem is- in BC Where I live - a person cannot be ordained for one ceremony. But my uncle can marry us if we have a marriage commisioner present.
We get married with just our immediate family and wedidng party at the rehearsal dinner with the commosioner present - and then saturdya my uncle can "marry" us in front of everyone. And that way the commissioner doesn't have to be present at the "original" ceremony- noone has to kow we were married the night beofre
we have the commisioner stand up with my uncle during the ceremony.
we can get married at the court house before of after the ceremony.
i think i like option 1.
any victoria bc/ vancouver island brides
am i the only one?
ANY VICTORIA BC/VANCOUVER ISLAND BRIDES...
I am JUST WONDERING IF THERE ARE ANY VANCOUVER ISLAND BRIDES ON HERE! JUST CURIOUS TO KNOW THAT I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE! WHERE IS EVERYONE HVING THEIR WEDDINGS ADN RECEPTIONS!!!
I AM HAVING MY WEDDING AND RECEPTION AT IGUANA RANCH- CHECK IT OUT ONLINE-- IT'S IN COWICHAN! BEAUTIFUL PLACE!!!
FLOWER GIRL DRESS!
I totally love the idea of dressing my flower girl in a tutu, that way she can use the tutu for dress up afterwards. they are super cheap and easy to make. I want my flwoer gril to wear something similar to this but in pink of course.
I need to know what to do
My fiance is a sub contrator (drywaller) and employs two guys. Today his contrator (who pays him) told him he can only afford to pay him 25 cents a square foot, he previosuly was getting 40 cents- and believe me when i put it that way, it seems like not a big deal, but it makes all the world of difference 15 cents is alot in the business. So we are going to have to lay off his employees- which i feel bad for them- but if we can't afford to pay them we will not be able to feed and clothe oursleves. I don't know if things will pick up, but we have to look out for us right now. Now the wedding is only 198 days away and i still have to pay for alot of things. I am freaking out because i have been waiting for this day for so long and now it looks like we are going to have to postpone it! omg what do i do. I know soo many people are having it rough right now..but i have had my fair share of downfalls in the last 3 years. why now? sorry guys i just need to vent.
