Got a reverend!

Jason called around and got us a reverend today, who will do the marrying for just $100. Very decent. His website is http://www.weddingwhereyouwant.com/, what a great domain name.

Trying to decide how I want to set up the music for the wedding. The legion has a PA system that I should be able to connect to speakers and my laptop. This will take a bit of research but shouldn’t be too difficult to do.

Really itching to get the invitations printed… they look so friggin awesome, I wanna stick em on my fridge haha.

Long past due updates!

It’s been so long since an update, as we’ve been slowly making progress, but things are starting to come together.

We finally got ourselves a hall after weeding through sooooo many…. ugh. Pain in the butt. We’ve booked the Brampton Legion, which is located on Queen Street. Really cute place, complete with lots of tables, floor space and a bar :D plus insanely cheap! Also we’re so cool we’re looking into obtaining memberships for said legion… o.o

I finished the design for the invitations which was a blast to do. Next step is to go get some ink and paper this weekend and print em all off, then hand em all out. I think they look fabulous, and the grand total of cost will be around $40 (for ink n paper).

Was lucky enough to have TWO garters, yes, two :D One thanks to my nanny which is gorgeous blue and lace, the other, also the one who gets the exciting pleasure of flying through the air, is orange and black.

I’ve since sold my original wedding dress since I decided it was too much of a hassle to get it cleaned and altered. Now, no longer getting married in a “wedding” dress but instead in this super cute, black evening dress that mommy gave me for Christmas last year. I’ve been in love with it since the day I got it but Jason and I don’t really go out for fancy very often, so I thought this would be the perfect time to wear it! It fits so well, I don’t have to worry about stepping on it, if I do spill something on it, it’s black so it’s far less easy to notice, and I can drink and eat without feeling like I’m going to bust through the seams. Also, it spins reaaaaaalllly nicely :D This also avoids the hassle of disappearing for 20 minutes to get out of a gown.

We’ve booked our hotels for Niagara Falls! Going to be staying at the Angel Inn, Niagara on the Lake for Halloween night, which is amazing since there are ghost tours on the lake as well as the inn itself is haunted. Cannot wait! Then off to the Marriott, Niagara Falls where we got a room with a jacuzzi! Love those things! So insanely excited to go back there it’s not even funny. Screw nice warm, sunny cruises and beaches – we’re going to the horror houses.

Jason and I are also going to be moving back to Brampton in the next month and a bit. Going to drop off an application today. If we get the place we need I’ll be crazy close to friends and family, as well as a gym. Not that I need to lose any, but it’d be nice to build up more muscle and do some toning. This way I can help rearrange tables at the hall hahaha.

We’ve been saving up airmiles to turn into Metro cards to help pay for catering, which will be mostly comprised of cold plates and finger foods (since we’re not doing an actual dinner). I’m an obsessive collector so we should have close to $100 worth of gift cards by the time it gets close to October, which would be super helpful.

Now we need to book a priest and wait for Halloween to get closer to buy decorations! Can’t wait to decorate that hall! Still debating on whether or not to get a smoke machine… hmm….

That’s all for now – whoever knew weddings could be so bloody fun?
