Invitations, Rings and Dresses

Wedding Invitation

After a break on wedding preparations, Kim and I got back into it in full force this weekend.

We picked up our invitations. They turned out exactly as we expected. Stephita did a great job on them.

Next we went shopping for our wedding bands. Mine took about 2 minutes to pick out since I knew exactly what I wanted. Kim was more discerning. She ended up trying on about 100 rings before finding the perfect one to sit next to her engagement ring.

And if that wasn’t enough, Kim and her bridesmaids went out today to finalize the bridesmaid dress situation. From what I hear (correct me if I’m wrong), it was a delightful affair which resulted in everyone agreeing on a dress style. Kim is very relieved to have that piece of the puzzle out of the way.

All in all, quite a productive weekend.

Update: By popular demand, here’s a shot of the interior of the invitation:

My Girls

I have chosen my bridal party, and they have all accepted…whew.  I feel grateful that everyone was excited to be part of our day.

Erica is my maid of honour.  We have been friends since ninth grade, so to me she was the obvious choice for this job. I know she’ll be perfect.

The bridesmaid’s are Johanna, Jennifer and Amy.  Johanna, my soon to be sister-in-law, has been a great friend for nearly as long as I’ve known her brother.  In terms of quality, Jen’s friendship is top of the line.  I’m thankful that she and her family are part of our lives.  Amy is a long time friend, and is the reason Derek and I met in the first place – thanks Amy!

I will also have two princesses leading the way down the aisle: Alexia and Karylton.  Alexia is my beautiful 9 year old cousin, and Karylton is the only 3 year old I know that can sit still for a mani/pedi – how could I not choose these two girls to start the ceremony.

I am very much looking forward to having these wonderful ladies by my side.
