hahhaa no its ok! I feel on track for things so I am not too worried... I definitely will copy and paste it! I want to try and get stuff done earlier rather then later so I am not stressing out close to the wedding... I've already had wedding nightmares that I've forgotten lots of things lol!

Lydia,

 

Don't worry its a good thing, I think most people would love to be that organized and with the size of your group you have to be! Plus I think most of the ladies here would kill for a destination wedding to do list! Great Job.

Of course! That's what this forum is for! Sharing ideas! Yeah I think I paid like 17$ total for 100 of them! I really think it will be a nice touch! I hope guests like them as much as I do! Plus it was fun way to use one of our engagement photos!

 

Thank you Carina. A nice touch for sure. Great idea! Your (and mine) guests will love them, I'm sure of it :)

Definitely! I've read other lists - but they just have the major stuff on it that I've already done... its those little things/ personal touches for the wedding for destination weddings that we forget about!

Our final payment is done we have 45 people paid in full 39 from Calgary, 6 from Toronto and then I had 4 last minute not with my booking that are coming from Winnipeg, it is pretty exciting I really didn't expect to have so many people coming, and now I am really excited its all paid for and there are is like 53 days left before we go... I am also excited because we are going club class which I have never done before so that is awesome and we started to do some other trip related shopping which is awesome because it isn't wedding related it is for us, some sunscreen and we bought some tanning minutes... it is so close now I cannot believe that we have been planning for well over 10 months YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!:smile123:

 

I can't believe how close you are!!!! Awesome that you are getting other non wedding related things done. Those are important too!

 

Who are you flying with?

 

Also did you end up having people put a deposit down but back out and not pay in full. I had a nightmare about that the other night. I'm sure it won't be the case just looking for you to put my nightmares to rest! lol

here is a link to the November 2013 Brides chat

Hey Lydia. That list is awesome!!! LOVE IT

 

We are using the Carlingview hotel as well! They gave us a really great group rate. Much cheaper than park and fly!

 

Also my aunt and uncle live on rice lake. I practically grew up there. What a small world!

We are flying Air Transat... they had the best price which is great because I am not a big fan of Sunwing after our trip to Mexico last year!

 

we had 4 people cancel on us the week that the final payment was due... so yes they had paid a deposit and then life happened and they couldn't go, but I think that for the most part if people pay a deposit they are probably pretty serious about coming for us it was $300 a couple so not a huge amount but also not a small amount!

Hi ladies,

 

Went for my final dress fitting and bridesmaid dresses were in.  Everything went great!  Bridesmaids didn't need any alterations and my bustle was done perfectly :)  I highly suggest Windsor Bridal in Toronto for dress or alterations!  Here is a pic with some of my gals, don't mind my face in the picture, I was laughing!
