Changes and Progress

Things have been crazy busy since we've decided to change the wedding date. That's right the date is now Saturday September 20th, 2008! This year! Only six months away! Planning has been ramped up into high gear and there has been progress. In between house hunting we've managed to get some of the important things done. The venue is still The Art Gallery of Hamilton, Hurray! The closest people in our lives have been asked to take part in the wedding. Our wonderful entourage             

Maid of Honour Holly Pitts friends since grade 4, she’s always there through thick and thin
Best Man Jerry Urjasz friends since grade 9
Bridesmaid Amy Gillgrass friends since grade 9, my first time living away from home was with Amy
Groomsman Jan Rudy known him as long as he’s been alive
Bridesmaid Renata Zaprucki known her as long as she’s been alive but she’s cuter than Jan
Groomsman Ken Drebenstedt known him as long as he’s been alive

The next thing I had to worry about was finding the perfect wedding dress. After going to six different boutiques and dragging various friends with me I found it.  I had very definite ideas about what I wanted, tried on a lot of different shapes and ended up with a beautiful gown by Maggie Sottero. I found it at Bridal and Beyond in Mississauga.Rick managed to find a great photographer. After interviewing 6 people he introduced me to one of the photographers at Art of Weddings. Trina was very easy going and we liked her style. So the photographer is booked.Also picked a baker for our wedding cake. Went to one tasting and loved all the little cake and icing samples that we could combine any way we wanted. Got some big sample cakes from another baker to take home and try so that the family also got to vote on the best flavor. We chose Lynne from Let Them Eat Cake in Dundas to make our little wedding cake. She was great, full of a lot of information and the cake and buttercream were delicious.This week we registered at The Bay and William Ashley. That was pretty fun and I actually found  formal and casual china patterns that don't suck.Stay tuned for bridesmaid dresses, flowers and invites.
