Our first trip to the US together

The last weekend in April my parents and Eddie and I are taking a trip into Maine to Bangor to hopefully buy material for the wedding. We will be staying at my Aunt and Uncle’s cottage in New Brunswick for 4 nights and will be making at least one day trip into the US.

Eddie and I are so excited. It is his first trip to the US. We went and got a passport for him the other day specifically for this trip. He’ll need it anyways for our honey moon. It’s soon going to be time to start planning the trip.

We are planning for the weekend to go to Jo-Ann Fabric in Bangor. We have the pattern’s already for the wedding dress and for the bridesmaids and flower girl dresses. I can’t wait to get started on them.

The wedding dress is just a regular dress pattern. But we are going to turn it into a wedding dress using charmeuse and lace. I can’t wait to get started on it. Mom and I are going to sew it together. We are making all the dresses. We are also doing the food ourselves, cold platters and we are doing all the decorations ourselves.

Edward’s sister-in-law is doing the photography and her friend is doing the cake. She is a professional cake maker and does beautiful work. We have the wedding invitations done and in the mail and some we still have to deliver to people close by. I’m so excited it is all coming together nicely!

  1. Your wedding sounds perfect! We did a lot of the same things for our wedding as well. I love having that personal touch. Plus, saving a bit of money isn’t bad either. My grandma made my wedding dress and it is something that I can cherish forever I LOVE Jo-Ann’s. It’s a dangerous store for me because I always want to buy ALL the things! I hope you have a great trip to the US.

    1. Thanks Carolynne. I love Jo-Ann’s too. My mom is just teaching me to sew but I can see it being a dangerous store for me at some point too lol. She has closets and closets full of material! I can’ wait to make the wedding dress. I’m scared but excited. Scared we will mess it up but excited about it if it works out.

  2. Yay, I’m so happy for you!! Bangor sounds like India to me, lol.
    It would be so cool if you could come to Sweden!! We have a guest bed room, an espresso machine and a master chef. Just let me know in advance so I can plan with work and stuff.

    1. I think a few days in Sweden are in order then! We both would love to go. We’ll let you know. I have not even talked to my work yet about when I can go. I will have to do that soon.
