Off to get married

Hi everyone. Happy Happy Wednesday. Today is a very special day for me and Atchan. We are off to get married!!! I'm so nervous right now, but a lot calmer that I thought I would be.

I won't be able to update my blog for a few days. My mother in law and auntie in law flew from Japan last night. I'm very excited that they will be attending to our wedding. We are planning to take them to many places in Ontario!

I better get ready. Have a lovely week :)

Wedding makeup and my bridezilla moment

Happy Monday and Happy Victoria day everyone. I hope you are enjoying your long weekend. I'm loving these lovely wedding make up. I love natural make up because I want to still look like myself on a wedding day, but I also want to look like my better and prettier self :)

From Sweet magazine, May 2010 issue.

From Ray magazine, April 2010 issue.

I think I experienced my very first "Bridezilla moment" over the weekend as Atchan and I went through our wedding to-do list. Not that I intended to be one though. Since I'm getting closer to the wedding date, I tend to be worried about every little details. It's sad because I won't be able to enjoy the whole wedding experience as much as I want to. I have to get rid of all anxieties out of my system real soon!!!

Toronto Island

This past weekend, Atchan and I went to Toronto Island together again. It was our 3rd visit to Toronto Island in one month. Since the weather was so sunny and bright outside, we decided to check out the wedding spot for the last time before the wedding :)

View from the ferry.

View from the lake. You can see the CN tower from here.

We rent a two-seaters bicycle. It was my first time riding a two seaters bicycle. I thought riding a bicycle was a couple thing, especially with this two seaters bicycle hahaha. It was a fun fun day :)

What have I been doing lately?

My wedding day is less than a month now. I'm counting down until my wedding everyday. Atchan and I have been running all over the city to get a married license, meet with our wedding photographer, wedding officiant, visit the wedding site and so on. We are so lucky to find such nice people who are willing to help and work with us on the wedding day. Thank you :)

Also last week, I've been looking for the wedding decorations. I don't need many decorations since my wedding will be small and intimate. But still, I want to have something special on our wedding day.

One of my friends was having a garage sale, she sold me this folding table for only $5!

There are so many nice fabric stores around Queen street west. I found this lovely fabric at one of the stores.

Also, I made our wedding guest book box from scratch. I bought a box at a craft store and pasted cute paper on it. Voila! It only took me two hours for this project :)

My wedding sort of guest book. It's also DIY!

I got this at Urban Outfitters. I'm planning to put our wedding favor, custom magnet buttons, on it :)

Preview of my wedding props over all.

Lastly, my last addiction of the week. Didn't mean to promote Starbucks though, since they have happy hour half-price frappuccino this month, I've been drinking it once every two days with cup cakes!

I found many nice wedding ideas and inspirations from Once Wed, 100 Layer Cake and Green Wedding Shoes. Don't forget to visit these amazing websites :)

Fabulous finds { Mother's day gifts }

Mother's day is coming soon. I hope you will treat your mom well on her special day. I used to leave a card and a gift that she liked on her pillow. It made her happy everytime she received the presents.

Although my mom is no longer here with us, but I feel like she is always with me. These are things she liked such as card, flowers, the carpenters, vintage cups. I would want to give them to her on Mother's day. Happy Mother's Day everyone :)

Wedding bouquets { Peony, Rose and Hydrangea }

I'm really obsessed with Peony, Rose and Hydrangea flowers lately. I think they are gorgeous and would make a wonderful wedding bouquet.

I was planning to make a DIY bouquet at first, but buying different kinds of flowers would cost me at least $60 already. I decided to go to a professional instead. I'm meeting with my florist on Monday, I still can't decide which color combination I should go for.

Atchan loves the 2nd one, Light green hydrangea and ivory rose. His idea of a wedding should be white. Since my dress is already white, I prefer to have a little bit of colors. I love the color combination on the last bouquet, White, light pink and fuschia peony in full bloom.

Please help me pick which one I should go for! Many thanks in advance :)
