Ok back to Planning.

I hope you guys don't think that in no way anything has changed. Well except that i'm now married, ha, ha. It's so cool to say that.  Anyhoo, the plans are still in full swing for August 7th which leaves us 22 days. All our family and friends will be here except the most important. My dad who isn't well and my mom since my stepdad is very ill. They'll be with us in spirit and I want to do something that will involve them a bit.

My idea is to have them video tape a toast  to us and we'll have our DJ play it at the reception. If I can't do it with a projector, i'll just play the sound. I won't listen to it or watch it beforehand so it'll be a surprise to us on the day. I think it's the best I can do. I love my parents so much and however I can incorporate them in our wedding, I will. My sister and brothers will be here so it won't be all bad.


  1. That's a great idea! Definitely do that. It will make it very special.

  2. I’m so sorry they won’t be there, but I think the video toast is a great idea. It will be a nice surprise for you, and a wonderful way to include them.

  3. OMG I love the idea of having a taped message to play at your reception. How special. You should totally try to get that done. :)

  4. I'm so sorry your Mom won't be able to be there for your day. I love the idea of the video. If they can't do a projector, what about a regular large screen TV so everyone can see? See if your venue has one before you ask your DJ - they can be another $200 from the DJ's.

    Oh & check your email. ;)

  5. I like the video idea too! I had a friend get married in Austrailia and those of us who couldn't afford to go wrote letters and sent them to her FI and they had someone read them out loud during the toasts. :)

  6. Oh the letter idea is great too. Another possibility.


Tell me what you think!
