So, for those of you who don't know....Tim and I aren't actually married-yet.....
My Dad and Liz will be in Ontario as of this Saturday, whooohooooo! And our good friends Frances and Adam and their two boys will be too. I had a middle of the night brainwave....why don't Tim and I get married while they are here?!?! So, we had about 4 weeks to organize this 'extravaganza' for July 1st!
We got the licence, we met with an officiate (who is fabulous!) and sent out the homemade invitations. We only invited about 2 dozen people, but would have happily invited everyone we know!!! Unfortunately, most of the people we know are in another province....We will be thinking of you all.
Wanting to make this event as groovy and fantastic as possible, and also as inexpensive as we could, required some thinking and imagination....
I bought Peekaboo an off-white dress at the Thrift store. We then went to Len's Mill and bought ribbon, little ribbon flowers and sparkles for embellishment. I am making her a flowered headband with ribbons and beads to go with it!
I looked at some lovely dresses for myself in various Thrift stores and Value Village, but happened upon a beautiful, silk, awesome dress, NEW! I had to have it!!
We are having a potluck bbq after the ceremony, and the next consideration was dishes....Real or paper? China or plastic? I opted for paper plates, the 'good' ones, but have to have real glass for the champagne. I raided every Thrift store in the KW area and bought all the champagnesque glasses I could. I bought glass paint and got busy! These will be 'take-homes' for the attendees of our event!
Happy Canada Day Everyone!!
I really like the one with the blue stripe and the daisies....
Dad, Liz, Mom, Peter and Gramma
For the kids!
