Hey! I'm so glad you were able to get some useful info from what I'd sent you =)
I'd go with the bride above regarding the semi-private event & DJ/cigar roller.
We are having the cigar roller & DJ, but our whole day will be private. I'm sure you can get an answer quickly with your WC, once they reach out to you.
Oh girl I hear you! You feel so accomplished and then there will be a lull that you feel there isn't much left to do, then it'll hit you towards the end that oyu have so much more to do!
I'm going through that right now, we have so much to order & finalize, but we're anxisouly awaiting our RSVP's! They're due in almost a week and still waiting on almost 75 people!
But I'm sure it'll work out and I can get ordering- I'm so excited to get everything here and ready for the big day!
One piece of advice I can give to you that's very important to remember [I'm sure many brides on here will agree]: Do not say you "know for sure" who is or isn't coming. There will be many surprises along the way, so don't adhere to a specific number. Be prepared to be let down, it happens to us all. For me, it was my closest childhood friend & some immediate family members that said they would be there 100% and then the RSVP came saying they could not attend. Just remember that as much as everyone wishes they could be there, some will not be able to attend.
Feel free to ask any other questions =)

We've got the Sky Deck booked for a Civil Ceremony at 1:30pm and with the help of this awesome forum, I've already got the kissing ball aisle decorations, and will be using those for the centrepieces at the reception.
We're fine with the semi-private reception that comes with the Silver Package, and with your advice, I'm definitely going to budget for a private, just in case we go over the 40 count.
We want to hire a DJ for after the reception and a Cigar Roller as entertainment during the reception.
My fi's family friends are photographers and have offered to do our wedding photos for free...*phew*
The STD's have been ordered, and should be here any day so we can start the hand cramping address writing.
The wedsite is up, the engagement video is on youtube, and I'm almost done our Iphone/Android app.
We'll definitely be speaking to our TA to see what she can do about freebies....she's local to us in Toronto and is a GI agent as well.
Crazy how I feel like we've already done so much and there's still SOOO much to do LOL....
Thank's again for the advice...excited for you that yours is coming up in May!! =)
