Five for Friday - More Wedding Stuff!

I'm linking up with Doodlebugs teaching for her weekly link up party this Friday!

A few weeks ago I told you about some stuff that I had been working on for our upcoming nuptials... well we are now down to just 2 months so things are pretty well planned...

The colours!

I can't believe I forgot to mention these in the last post!  The colours are Purple and Orange.

This is not our actual guestbook but it's how we got the idea for ours.


I haven't seen the silk mock up of the flowers but I'm sure it will look gorgeous.  I wasn't at all sure of what I wanted when I showed up to the florist... all that I knew was that our colours were purple and orange and my favourite flower was a calla lily.  You'll have to stay tuned for another couple of months to catch a glimpse of the actual flowers.

The rentals

So far all we've had to rent is the napkins.  I've got some purple ones ready and waiting!

The favours

Yes, we are giving out favours and in my opinion they are pretty great.  I REALLY hope people take them!

My goal was to have most of our wedding stuff done over the summer (it helps that I have a pool and friends that want to use it... they just have to commit to helping me with some wedding stuff afterwards!).  I have about 150 circles to cut our of cardboard (for our favours) that I'm aiming to get done before September starts... I'm sure there are still plenty of nice pool days left though!

Five for Friday - Engagement Photos!

Once again I'm linking up with Doodlebugs Teaching for another Five for Friday post

So a while ago our photographer took us to get our pictures taken so that we could use one of them for our invites... it was a hard choice because she gave us so many beautiful pictures... here are 5 that we wanted to choose but in the end didn't.

We took all our photos at a local park (it's actually where to got engaged) on 2 different days (day number one was sort of rainy but day number 2 was definitely rainy!)

This one was John's favourite for our invites.

I don't know what it is about this one... I just love the pop of blue from the umbrella amongst all the green


This one was taken on the first less rainy and I think it looks beautiful (this one was my first pick for our invites)

This one wasn't really an option we considered for the invites but it's a great shot of the ring!

Which is your favourite?

Five for Friday

This week I'm linking up with Doodlebugs Teaching to bring you another Five for Friday post

Summer is half over for me and so I decided that today I would talk about 5 things I've done this summer so far.


zip lining

On Father's Day (which I guess wasn't technically summer yet... my sisters and I took our parents zip lining... and a fine time was had by all.

a bunch of strawberries ready for the freezer!

I went to pick strawberries with John's sister.  So far, I've made some dairy free ice cream (that's delicious), jam, and a bunch of smoothies (the rest of my berries are now frozen).


I had a birthday and celebrated other people's birthdays.... but there are no pictures from those events.

Canada Day fireworks

I went to see the fireworks on Canada Day


I attended a friends wedding (with a bunch of other friends)

What have you been up to this summer?

Five for Friday - Wedding Stuff!

Where have I been?

I've been busy planning a wedding folks!  

But today I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for her 5 for Friday Posts

We are down to 3 months before John and I tie the knot so here are 5 things that we've already planned...


I'm actually going for my first fitting in a couple of weeks!
But I'm not posting a pretty picture of my dress (or what I liked or what I didn't like... it's going to be a surprise for nearly everyone!)


Our venue is beautiful with lots of outdoor options to have our wedding at.  Unfortunately, the weather might be chilly in October so we may end up having it inside anyways... but I like that there is options.  The garden location is the location John and I have agreed is our favourite

The date.

It's October 14 
(from start to finish it will have been 5 months of wedding planning!)


My sister is making it and I'm confident it'll look great... neither of these is exactly what we want but it's close!


This is John's domain.  We were cutting pieces of wood at the lake a couple of weeks ago for the table numbers... we need some larger pieces of wood for the bases of the centerpieces still and are waiting on some charms for them too (these are not our actual centerpieces... just where we got some inspiration from)

psst... I wrote out our engagement story here and click here to see the ring or click here to see a more professional picture of the ring.
