The last month  honestly flew by so quickly! We were able to finalize a few more important things though.

Bridesmaids Dresses - All of my girls now have their dresses ordered. Phew! A pretty important thing that we needed to get out of the way. Since it's wedding season, I was told that it may take longer for the dresses to come in, so I thought it would be best to get it ordered early. At least it'll be one less thing to think about.

Canadian Tourist Visa Application
This task has somewhat lasted a lot longer than I had anticipated. I have been working on getting all the required information for our family members from the Philippines and Singapore to get a visa to come here to Canada. The process itself is pretty straight forward, but they do require a lot of detailed information. Also, I had to gather as much supporting documents as I can to help with their application. I am very happy to say that I am now 90% complete and they will be applying within the next couple of weeks. I pray that everything works out and that they are granted the visa to come here. I can't ask for a better wedding gift!

For those who are thinking of getting a Canadian Tourist Visa, here is a site that I actually got some really great information on: Canadian Tourist Visa 101 by Mai Mai Lim.

Music Repertoire
I don't think I've been able to update you with regards to our ceremony musicians. Unfortunately, as much as we wanted the Youth Inspired! to provide the music for our wedding, it wasn't meant to be. Due to unforeseen circumstances, they can no longer provide the music.

However, our search for musicians led us back to our church! Last night, Mark and I met with one of the church choir heads. We thought it would be just a normal meeting where she would give us a list of songs to choose from and we pick from there. We were both pleasantly surprised. There were probably about 8 other couples there to meet with her also.

What they did was truly a great idea. The consultation was ultimately an audition! They played and sang clips of the all the songs that we can choose from. It was something we have never been to before, and we thought was pretty cool! In this way, we know exactly what to expect for our wedding day. All I can say is that we left that consultation grinning from ear to ear! We can't wait to hear them play and sing again at our wedding! =)

  1. I know that wedding preparations are tough. But I never realized that it would be this teeeeedious. The tiniest details are exhausting. But since you'll do it only once and it's with the person you were born for, every effort is indeed worth it.

    Kaya niyo yan :)

    He he ... Believe it or not Diane, it's just starting. The next couple of months closest to the wedding will even be more hectic! :) But it's ok, like you said, it's all worth it. Diba mas worthwhile ang something if you truly work hard for it? You feel more deserving at the end. :) Thank you for the support! Have a great week!
