I'm getting married!!!

I'm so excited to finally share with you all that I'm getting married this summer! My fiancé proposed on Valentine's Day this year. Check out my video for the proposal details, bridesmaids proposal day, save the date cards and more wedding details.
____________
Engagement Ring
We've been shopping for engagement ring since last year but I've fallen in love with the halo setting from James Allen. Initially, I showed him another setting from there but he got me with more diamonds and I'm in love with the ring! He proposed at the ferris wheel at Old Port of Montreal (La Grande roue de Montréal). It was one of the best nights of my life. 
____________
Bridesmaids Proposal
I decided to hold a makeover session at my place, which went really well. We had so much fun! I also had a table setup with boxes, cookies, drinks, etc. After the makeover session, I gave each girl a box and their reaction was priceless. I'm so glad I filmed it! I featured it in the video in this post.
 I got the personalized bridesmaids proposal gift box from Etsy. It had the name indicated on the box in gold and inside it read: "Will you be my bridesmaid?"
I got a set of 6 satin personalized robes from Etsy. This set worked out perfect for me since I have 5 bridesmaids and I also got a robe for myself in ivory with emerald design. As for the bridesmaids, I chose coral as the color of robe and design in Emerald. Each robe had their name indicated in front and "Bridesmaid" on the back.
Aside from the robes, each bridesmaid got Huda Beauty Lashes in Samantha, selfie light and an organza bag filled with samples and lash applicator.

I also got cookies from YesPleaseMTL. I absolutely loved the way they turned out. I emailed them the shape, color and writing I wanted and they did an amazing job. They tasted so good too! 

I created a Snapchat geofilter for the day as well using Photoshop.
____________
Save the date cards
For the Save The Date cards, we featured our dogs: Hedda and Jackie. Hedda, my fiancé's dog, is a rottweiler/doberman mix (female) and Jackie is my furbaby and he's labrador/german shepherd mix. 
I got the Wedding announcement Custom Signs from Etsy and we used "My Humans are getting married" sign to take pictures of our dogs. I used picmonkey.com to design the cards but only printed few of them out to give to bridesmaids and close friends. We created a Facebook page and added them there to announce the dates:
  • June 28th 2018: Henna/Sangeet night - There will be dinner, music and henna station that night for the guests. We will also do the religious ceremony earlier during the day but with family. 
  • June 29th 2018: Reception Day
Those are the details for now! I still have so much to do but I'm so thankful to bridesmaids and my event planner, Rana, who is also a good friend of mine. Her and her husband have a business together called Noor Events and Photography and they offered their photography services on my birthday and they were amazing!!
