When Marrying A Clown...

Hey! I know what you first thought and that's not very nice! I was talking about Dan's balloon twisting when he's dressed as a clown for parades and stuff.
With his unique talent/hobby comes many unique wedding possibilities. Such as balloon flower bouquets for myself and my bridesmaids. A gorgeous balloon ceiling even maybe. Balloon whatever. Still looking for ideas on how all to use balloons. Dan is busy learning new flower styles, so I am surely to have one of a kind bouquets.

To DJ or Not To DJ, That Is The Question

One where the answer keeps becoming more and more apparent. It is very difficult to find a DJ around here. One that has his/her own equiptment and who is willing to get the important songs I have picked that they don't already have is even harder. I think it is time to give up and look into renting a sound system and enlisting a friend to spin tunes for the evening. Must call Long & McQuade in Regina tomorrow when they are open and get some prices.

Capturing the Moments

We have a photographer! He is amazing and I am soo pumped! In the beginning of October, he's coming to do our engagement photos for our wedding announcement in the paper. He's also a friend of Dan's so we know he will treat us fantastic. He's affordable and does phenomenal work, so much better than some photographers I spoke to that charge much more for much less. Check him out at
I spoke so so many photographers and I knew from the first moment that Chris was the man for the job. If you're looking for photographers in the Estevan area and need more information, leave a comment. I have a list of photographers, contact information, and pricings. But check out Chris' site for Saskatchewan weddings. Trust me, he's the best. Just remember, he's booked for June 12th, 2010 already.

Midnight Lunch? How About Midnight Bonfire?

Yes, that's right. A bonfire. At a wedding. No, I'm not joking.
I think the idea is great. Why feed people a bunch of lousy cold cuts when we can eat hot food cooked fresh? Weather permitting of course. If the weather turns miserable on us, then we will fire up the BBQ for our hot dogs and smokies. Good times to be had. Don't forget about the marshmallows, it's not a bonfire without marshmallows. :)
