Shoutouts.

I recently stumbled across a whole slew of Canadian wedding bloggers. When I first started blogging about year ago, the only Canadian blogger that I knew of was the witty Krista, aka The Canadian Bride. I'm very happy to have 'met' more Canadian bloggers over the last year. If you're a Canuck, and are looking to read some friendly CanCon blogs, then here are some I highly recommend (in no particular order):

The Canadian Bride - Krista hails from Kingston, ON and for the past year, I've been following her adventures in wedding planning. Right now she's in the midst of doing her recaps, so head on over there to see the fruits of her labour.

Nicole and Jesse (Get Married) - Nicole hails from the Waterloo area and is having her wedding in a children's museum! How cool is that?! Oh, and somehow Nicole finds a way to run half-marathons/triathlons when she's not working or planing her wedding.

Something Weddings - Brandy and her mister of 9 years live in the T.dot as well. Her wedding planning has taken on some twists and turns over the last several months. She recently announced a 'game changer' decision - she and mister are going to elope in Montreal. Will she do it?? Stay tuned.

And Stanley Makes Three..... - BEL's blog is a recent discovery for me. She's planning a 2010 wedding in Northern Ontario from Vancouver, BC. Her venue is by far the most interesting one I've heard in a long time - The Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre. You're curious, aren't ya?!

- Also a recent discovery - Tiffany will be getting married in the Canadian Rockies. Check out her weekly feature, "2 the North Tuesdays", which spotlights Canadian wedding vendors.

A Little Birdie Weds - I found Steph's blog via bride-on-purpose. Steph is a post-grad student in event management. Her and her finance are currently living in England and are about to come home to Canada to plan their 2010 Haliburton, ON wedding.

The Marry Melodies - This lovely wedding 'obsess-er' from Ottawa has the best wedding candy around. Head on over there if you need some inspiration. You won't be disappointed.

A Vancouver Bride - In less than 2 months, this Vancouverite is getting married in Whistler, BC. Um, can you say 'jealous'?

Marie-Eve in Montreal - This 'practical' bride hails from one of my favourite cities - the city of poutine, smoked meat, and amazing shopping. Marie-Eve was so 'practical' that she actually cooked her own wedding feast! I know, incroyable!

And finally, although she's not Canadian (but she is within the Commonwealth), I have to mention Anna and the Ring. This Londoner and her tales of planning a "shabby-chic luxe" wedding often has me in stitches. Anna's lovely sense of style and equally lovely sense of humour will make you an instant stalker. Luckily, Anna posts so many times a day so you can always get a fix.

If you're a Canadian blogger (wedding or not), let me know and I'll add you to my blogroll. Now go on....go blog stalk a Canadian, eh? ;)

*FYI-Those vendors or blogs that are Canadian are marked with an asterisk in my blog roll.

Thanks dear! Can I confess that I don't like smoked meat, and rarely eat poutine? (Montreal bagels are the best, though). Shopping, I like, but with the full-time job, the kid and the blog, most of it these days is of the online kind! :-)

And really, self-catering wasn't that big of a deal! Small event, afternoon cocktail, no full, sit-down meal, anyone?

Have a happy time in LA next week!

Oh Marie-Eve - you don't give herself enough credit. I'm with you...Montreal bagels are delicious.

Brianna Phelan said...

Look at you showcasing Canadian talent - you rock S! Always a pleasure to read your blog :)

Krista said...

Ah ... thanks for the shout out. I only knew about half those blogs. I'm going to check out the others right now!

Tiffany @ bride-on-purpose said...

Hey Girl! Thanks for the shout out... and the intros to a couple Canucks I haven't met yet!! Bloggers better watch out, the Canadians are EVERYWHERE!! I can't wait to meet some of your readers over at my spot... you have a great crew!!

Nicole said...

Thanks for the shout out! This is awesome. When I first delved into the wedding blog world as a reader I couldn't find ANY Canadian content.

Now it seems more and more is popping up all of the time, and it's great to "meet" all of you.

Brandy said...

How AWESOME!!! I think one of the hardest things is the lack of info for Canadian gals. I look at all the blogs and it's all these amazing weddings in the US or abroad and so very few from Canada(at least it seems that way!)

Montreal bagels are the best!! Bagel World here in T.dot is the closest I can find.

Marie-Ève said...

Hey Brandy! Eloping around my neck of the woods he? :-) Don't hesitate if you need any insider info/help...

Kristin said...

Some of my favorite bloggers are from our neighbor to the North!

The Marry Melodies said...

I love your blog Miss Pro Maid of the Bride!
I am always a bridesmaid too - and a fellow Canuck. And I also have two closets: one in Vancouver and the other in New York where my BF lives. So much in common! Plus I have a blog about being a bridesmaid (and a ton of other things now too)

The Professional Bridesmaid said...

@ Miss L, Sarah: Thanks for stopping by fellow CDNs. I've added you to my blog list. Looking to blog stalking you both. :)

Sarah - very parallel lives :)
