Because it Happens

Yup. Its that time of the month again. I'm one of those unlucky girls who unfortunately gets it that lasts about a week and its really painful ALL week long. No fun.

I have tried pretty much everything that is on the market. The pads, the tampons, the diva cup, the cotton pads...If I do get it on the week of my wedding, these are the winner.

Any other kinds of tampons just don't cut it for me. These ones work the best and I haven't had any accidents. Other companies make their tampons too long so when it gets absorbed, well, you get the picture.

As for pads, I use them too, but only the cotton ones. Pads sold in pharmacies have perfumes which stink in general and I have bad reactions to them. After trying these cloth pads I have never been happier!

Have you ever had trouble finding the perfect solution for your period woes?

Busy bee!

Not on weddinbee though! Haha. I have been doing my driving lessons, working, trying to not buy Christmas gifts, and had a Christmas party from work. Woooh!

I am glad to announce that I finally booked the DJ. It was really stressing me out for the past couple of weeks and now it is done!

Animation Select
I think they were the DJ that one of my friend's wedding a couple of years ago and I absolutely loved their choices.

They said there wouldn't be a problem incorporating the "movie theme" into the music selection. I am so excited!!!

Fancying Up the Front Doors

While looking through some wedding pictures online I saw the bride and grooms first initial hanging on a church door. What a sweet and original idea! I haven't seen that here.

Here are some images I have found everywhere.



I would have to find or create the letters J and D big enough for the front doors of the church. I would also have to figure out what medium to create them with. There's chiffon, silk paper, fake moss, fake flowers, real flowers...the list goes on an on. Oh, and I'd like to bring them to the reception hall afterwords. But where would I put it?

Another DIY project on the list!

*Pulls Out Hair*

Christmas is fast approaching and all of the stuff I want to do handmade...well, I got one scarf done. Bah.

I've been relatively stressed out as of late. I have been trying to finish the renovations which have been on hold since November. I have been trying to start doing some DIY stuff for the wedding, but have not started one bit. I have been lazy to get new batteries to be able to take some new pictures from my camera. I have yet to call the DJ for the wedding...I'm slacking off. I guess I'm afraid to start everything?

I needed to cheer up and I saw this on Facebook yesterday. I couldn't resist showing this to you guys.

You see, whenever I feel down or bummed out, my pets or other people's pets always make me feel better. I feel that animals have this sense that they know when their owners are feeling blue and try to comfort them, or they just act goofy.

Mr. Ferret and I caught Pepper doing this the other day (this is not a video of Pepper)

 He would grab onto it and not let go!

I always try to see the positive side of things, even when things in life keep getting in the way or putting yourself down. I'm making myself a list tonight with all of the things I would like to get done before April. I think putting in a time line would help a lot.

Did you ever get back-tracked with planning?

Pom Pom Decorations and Cute Little Flowers

I have to decorate the church pews and the altar. I really did not know what to do at first. I didn't want to spend a fortune on flowers for every pew, and then something for the altar, and then throw it all away.

One evening  I was looking around everywhere on wedding sites that might have cute decoration ideas. I came upon this:

If I use ivory and green it could work. No?

And for the altar what about a bunch of baby's breath? I could buy some the day before and just stick them into clear vases.

Simple, but elegant. And hassle free. Exactly what I need!

Did you go through the DIY route for the church decorations?
