Brodie and Morgan Sept 25 2010

Congratulations to Brodie and Morgan who got married this weekend at the beautiful Kiwanis Waterfall Park! The weather was absolutely perfect! And we were so glad to see some sunshine after weeks of cloudy skies and wet streets.



Imagine was very excited to be able to help out this great couple with day-of wedding coordination. After having a great outdoor afternoon wedding, this couple retreated to the Regina Inn for a wonderful buffet reception.

Brodie and Morgan chose to have turquoise, brown and baby pink as their wedding colors and they did a great job implementing those colors into there wedding day with unique wedding favor boxes, and colored floral petals sprinkled along their reception tables. The Wedding Gallery also assisted them with their lovely decor with beautiful head table design, full of twinkling lights!

Thank you, Brodie and Morgan for allowing Imagine to be a part of your day. We were overjoyed!

Do you have the wedding jitters?

Here you are only a short while to your wedding, and you start to get the wedding jitters. Many people start to feel this way when it finally sinks in and they realize that the special day has arrived. Most people will feel nervous, and they start to doubt if they want to go through with it etc. Before you go and do something drastic, carefully consider if you really are doubting the relationship, or your just nervous about marriage itself.
A few helpful hints to clear your wedding fears......
Talk to your husband/wife about your fears and feelings. Your partner may actually have the same feelings as you do, and if they don't they are best one who could reassure you and calm your fears.
Take time away from all the wedding plans, such as a weekend away with your girlfriends, or a romantic getaway with your partner. And make sure you leave the wedding talk at home! That should get your mind away from things.
And last but not least, if you can't get over the jitters on your own, perhaps visit a counsellor. They might have a better time sorting out your real feelings for you.

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue.....

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue……
Many believe that the tradition started in the Victorian era, and that the original saying ended with …. “ and a sixpence in my shoe.”
The reason for having all these items on your person the day of the wedding, is suppose to bring good luck to the bride and her marriage.
When the bride looks for something old, its supposed to be something that connects her with her past, such as an old piece of jewelery, a swatch sewn in from her grandmother’s wedding dress etc. The something new should represent the bride’s future, for her life ahead. Something borrowed usually comes from a friend or family member, to represent the love of those around her, and something blue is supposed to represent a bride’s purity.
In early years, brides would always wear a blue dress, to represent their purity, as in the Christian faith where the Virgin Mary is always cloaked in blue. Before the late 19th century, nearly all brides wore blue as the color of choice for their wedding dress.
The sixpence is suppose to bring wealth and financial stability for the bride and her newlywed husband, usually worn in the left shoe.

Lori and Ron's Flowers

Ron and Lori plan to have a Christmas wedding this year, and I am lucky enough to be working with them on their flowers. Lori and Ron are having a simple wedding at the Floral Conservatory, followed by a beautiful reception at a local golf course.
For Lori's flowers she has chosen a lovely mix of white and red roses, formed in a round bouquet, and her fiance Ron is going to be matching with a simple red boutonniere.
I am glad you both enjoy your flowers, and I look forward to helping you with the rest of your wedding needs!
