Yay my house is officially sold now, officially moving to Edmonton! Scary.
I was worried about my dress fittings, and the store is being super awesome, I'll go in for my "final fitting" right before I move in October. They are going to keep my dress for me, then the day before I fly out I'm coming back to Winnipeg. I'll go to the shop first thing in the morning, then we'll do one more fitting, and then come back at the end of the day and they will have made any changes. They also have some system of packing up your dress. I'm supposed to bring my carry on bag, a sheet and whatever else I'm packing carry on and they take about 15 minutes and pack it up for me. My friend had this done for a big puffy dress when she got married in Italy, and said it turned out great. Thats kind of a nice alternative to worrying about the closet. They must roll it or something?
I had one of my guest drop out, due to their sister/daughter having a baby now, during the wedding, but still 31 booked!
One of my BM has her dress (my MoH). One of my BM is a teacher, so we're still trying to find out if she can make it. Hopefully she can, if she can't - do I ask someone else? Or just have two?
My sister is coming down in two weeks and we're going to find her dress.
Since I'm moving, I'm also having a shower/bachelorette party while my sister is down for my friends here. September will be so busy!
Groom and groomsmen are all sorted out (I think a few GM need shoes yet, but otherwise good).
Just need actual bags and mugs for OOT bags, anda few more hand sanitizers. I'm waiting for more to show up in clearance at Bath and Body Works. I had some for $0.50, and I was starting to fill up my basket as there was just enough. As I was doing it, apparently these two other women thought they needed some, so they started grabbing handfuls. I mentioned that they were for my wedding, and they ignored me! So I'm about 10 short. At least I can just go buy regular ones if I have to. I was surprised they thought they needed handfuls of hand sanitizers because I was.
My wedding coordinator has been amazing, really quick to reply. We have our locations for Ceremony, Cocktail Hour and Reception all picked out. We went to a friends wedding and they had a cocktail hour, and FH enjoyed it so much he thought we should have one. Score!
All in all, I think things are well. Once we get moved and settled, I will hopefully have time to finish everything off!
Hope you ladies are doing well!
