Mad Libs - Kissing Game


For The Kissing Game at our wedding I am going to be creating 'Mad Lib' stories that each table can fill in as a group and then read at the microphone to make us kiss!

Each story will be different and will be based on something about us as a couple. For example the one below will be a story about 'How we Met' and I will create others such as 'Ben and
Kendel's First Date' and 'Ben and Kendel on their Honeymoon' etc.

Each table will get two sheets of paper - the first with the rules on it, the blanks to fill in with the corresponding 'grammar prompt' as well as some 'grammar reminders' at the bottom :D

The second page is the story itself that the guests will transfer their words onto and then read as a group or in pairs etc. at the microphone!

Hopefully they will be a funny and entertaining way to make us kiss!

Jack and Jill - Carnival Game Posters

Our Jack and Jill is coming up this Saturday! I am super excited and super busy with preparations for the event! With all the little details it has been like planning another wedding!!

My Dad is going over and above (as per usual) and has created some awesome carnival games out of wood (photos to come)! So I created posters for each one to explain the rule and prizes for each!

I thought I would post them so that other couples could get ideas for Jack and Jill games!

My Wedding Hair

My childhood friend Karen did a fabulous job of my hair during my trial this past Wednesday!! Who would have thought that we would both go from playing hairdresser and photographer as little kids to now pursuing them as both of our careers!

She incorporated everything I wanted while using her judgment to edit out things that my conflict with each other!

I am super happy with the final result! My 'hair trial' doubled as a hairdo for my graduation that took place that afternoon and everyone just LOVED the hair!!

Thanks Karen! I can't wait for you to do it on the day of!

My Florist!

My florist is Awesome!
On top of being artistic, accommodating and let's be honest, patient with my vast vision and various ideas for my wedding flowers, my florist is going to the extent of matching up the flowers in each bridesmaid's bouquet with the boutonniere of their groomsman partner.
Each girl's bouquet is going to be having a different type of sunflower and different coloured mums in them (that will compliment the colour of each of the different skirts) and so my florist offered to match the girl's bouquet with the corresponding groomsman's boutonniere!!
Thanks for going over and above Melissa!!
And word out to the bridal party:
Be sure NOT to disregard your name on your bouquet or boutonniere as they are that way for a reason ;)

Wedding Map!


Now that most of the invites are out I can put up a picture of our wedding map.

Jill Mitchell drew all of the images! I love how it came together and I love that it displays all of the details of our day along with emulating the theme nicely.

Collage of Our Engagement Photos:
I finally put together a collage of our own engagement photos. I am always making them for other couples but never us. I am thinking about getting it custom framed (when frame go half price at Michales) and then doing the same square format of our wedding photos. They will be nice custom pieces for on the wall at home and I like that you can show multiple photos at once (instead of choosing just one!)

My friend Jenn took this photo for us and I thought it would be great to make it into a poster! Great for an online 'Save the Date' or can be used for a 'Jack and Jill' invitation/Poster!
