I’ve always been pretty low maintenance. I like to look nice, but full make-up and hair on a daily basis is too much effort for me. I wear mascara every day, and I do get my face threaded every three weeks because if I didn’t I would look like a Persian teenage boy. I generally […]

Back when we were growing up in small town Alberta, my sister, Amy & I were exposed to a great deal of non-typical music for the average small town Alberta girl through my dad’s vinyl/cassette tape collection and the independent radio my parents listened to.

I remember feeling a huge sigh of relief after I finally said “YES” to the dress at the bridal salon last fall. This feeling of relaxation was quickly replaced with a feeling of panic as the lady at the salon placed a veil atop my head. OH YEAH, THE VEIL. How could I forget? I […]

I’ve been brainstorming about this wedding for over a year now. There are endless online resources for gathering ideas and inspiration. In the early stages, I started saving the odd image to my computer desktop. That start to get a bit disorganized so I started a folder dedicated to wedding-related images. That too, began to […]

I started dress shopping too early and it wasn’t exactly the most fabulous experience but I got through it and I have a dress and I will share my experience with you in the hope that you learn from my mistakes! Even after being engaged for three months I had barely started to even look […]

Anyone trying to tackle wedding planning knows how far a little help can go! I am somewhat of a perfectionist and a lot of a control freak so accepting the help when offered is another problem all together. Recently while looking over my ever growing [when it should be shrinking] to-do list, I realized that […]

I hope you know where that quote comes from! Our Gifts! Since Matt and I have plenty of stuff, we didn’t want to register for more stuff.  We just want cash money! Of course it is difficult to tactfully ask for this, which is why we used simpleregistry.com. That way we could register for some […]
