Every Canadian Bride knows and loves the Birks name, and I was really excited to learn that Le Maison Birks is doing something really extraordinary. It’s putting brides and grooms across Canada in charge of naming their new Canadian diamond creation and if you’re the winner, you could win a ring from their newest collection to be launched in the Fall! Very exciting!
To enter the contest, you have to visit their site here. Of course you also need to include your suggested name for their new Canadian diamond creation.
Before you enter, we have a few suggestions and inspirational ideas of our own
- Forever Diamond
- The Sweetest Thing
- Truly Lovely Diamond
- La Vraie Princesse
- Truly Blue
Oh… there really are so many options! Good luck. In the mean time I’ll look at my beautiful ring box with the “name me” placeholder ring – hopefully I can put my new diamond ring in there soon
Oh well would you look at that… my ring looks beautiful in this gorgeous box! Thanks Birks!
Recently, I discovered BASIS Stratamark and Strataderm. These little tools are your secret weapon to feeling like yourself again before your big day, and I’ll tell you why!
It’s an innovative silicone polymer gel product that is used for the effective prevention and immediate treatment of new stretch marks. It’s the first professional product in tis category and it contains no active ingredients and is completely easy and safe to use! We all know stretch marks can happen for a number of reasons (weight gain and rapid loos, pregnancy, or bodybuilding) and 80% of all women develop stretch marks during their lifetime.
If you recently got some stretch marks and are stressing out a bit before the big dat, Stratamark is for you!
Strataderm is used for scar management and abnormal scar prevention. It yields dramatic improvements in the treatment of old AND new scars. It too is the first professional product in its category and it will put the old Vitamin E to shame. There is nothing more embarrassing than a scar that you are trying to cover up on your wedding day, and this will start to show results in the first 30 days.
Now, why would I be telling you ladies about these fabulous products if I didn’t have some to share with you! Actually we are having a great little contest.
You Could Win Both Products!
All you have to do is tell us which product you would love to own in the comment section below. That’s it! (be sure to include a valid email)
The contest will run until Sunday June 30th
The contest is open to Canadian Residents only, and the winner will be contacted by email!
One thing that often gets overlooked when planning your wedding is postage. It’s not always easy finding the perfect stamps for your wedding invitations and other wedding mail. It’s all about the personalized touches and Canada Post has some beautiful options for every kind of invitation, style and wedding.
The first stunning option is the new magnolia floral stamps. This collection of stamps is among the most popular of the year, highly anticipated by couples for upcoming wedding invitations.
The two colourful magnolias appearing on the stamps are the ‘yellow bird’ and ‘eskimo’ hybrids, specifically developed for the harsh Canadian climate. Whether it is their shyly opening cup of velvety petals, or their intoxicating fragrance prized by luxury perfumers, there’s something romantic and irresistibly exotic about magnolias.
The second and exciting personal touch you can add to your wedding mail is one-of-a-kind stamps! They’re easy to make—either online or via the Canada Post mobile app—and the perfect way to make a big impression on your loved ones. It’s simple to create stunning personalized postage
- Pick the photo or image you want to use.
- Choose from 12 stylish frame designs to make a stamp that’s vertical (portrait) or horizontal (landscape).
- Select the denomination(s) you need. There are stamps for Canada, the U.S., and International destinations.
You can order a Keepsake Sheet with 26 stamps & a souvenir photo enlargement. For a longer invite list, go with Full Sheets containing 50 stamps. Either way, you’ll save when you order 2 or more sheets!
It’s now your chance to win a $25 voucher to use towards your Picture Postage stamps.

Last month we held a great contest sponsored by Blurb. We had an overwhelming amount of entries and we are happy to finally announce the winner! Congratulations to Stephanie! She and her future fiancé won the $50 credit from Blurb!
So what will Stephanie do with that $50 from Blurb?
If we won, we would do a Hardcover photo wrap four our wedding album. Our wedding will be taking place on December 2, 2012.
Here is a little more about Stephanie and Stephen:
we were set up on a blind date nearly 5 years ago while we were still in college. I knew from that first date that he was going to be the man I spent the rest of my life with.
I’m an interior designer and Stephen is a manager for an auto mechanic shop while finishing school for civil engineering. We have a long hair chihuahua named Tico and a cat named Autumn.
Congratulations Stephanie and Stephen!
