57 days and counting..

 

Hey ladies! Today is 57 days until we leave and I must admit..my stomach is in knots when I think about how close it is.

Last Friday was my final payment date.. We have had a number of disappointments along the way and we had about 5-6 people drop out, but we are left with a good number of final bookers (30 guests including two children).

I wanted to keep it around 30 since that's what I had budgeted for.

 

Palace sent me my updated PO last week, but i'm waiting to iron out some of the small details (mis-charges). My balance is due by the end of the week and I can't believe how real this is getting.

I'm working on a few last minute things and my floral should be arriving today - yay exciting!

Music is something that Chester and I have been in the process of doing. We have almost all of the songs that we wanted and now we have to go through and add them into the iPad/try out the wedding DJ app.

 

I pick up my dress this Saturday and i'm quite excited about that! It's been 4-5 months since I tried it on so i'm excited to put it on again and see how it looks! I will try to get some pics while i'm there.

 

Will keep you ladies posted and to all my Toronto ladies .. GO JAYS GO!

Hey!
I think all of Canada is cheering for the Jays. Well I know my husband is. He's a fanatic lol

Can't wait to see some more pics of your dress. Good luck :

30 is a fantastic and even more so when it aligns with your budget hehe. That must be a load off.

Congrats on a t-57 day count down. That'll be here before you know it.

@calgarybride2015 Very true! haha. Our work encouraged us to wear Jays jerseys into the office today. I had a meeting scheduled for 4pm, but it got cancelled because it conflicted with the Blue Jays game. Toronto PRIDE! hahah

 

It's definitely nice that it aligns with my budget. I really didn't want to spend any more since we already added extras into the budget like videography. We definitely went a bit over our original budget that we had set out back in January.

 

I have a feeling these days are going to fly by. My stomach is full of knots/butterflies. Mostly because it's so soon and i'm excited and anxious.

Awesome! My husband is irked about the start times. Goes on and on about it. But he'll go to work in the middle of the night so he can make it home to watch! Enjoy your day in Toronto. I hope they win. The atmosphere will be unreal. It's like a different vibe here when the Calgary Flames are doing well. Can't say that for the Maple Leafs hehe sorry couldn't resist.

We went over the budget a bit too. I think that's par for the course. Unless you blow it right out of the water I think you are doing good.

Enjoy those feelings cause once December 16 is here you will long to have them back!!!

@perianjay

 

30 People is a good number.. not too big or too small! Even better that it lines up with your budget! 57 Days will FLY BY! I have 39 days left and I'm sick to my stomach every time I think about it!!! It seems like I have so much more left to do then you, so you will be fine! I'm sure I will have best nights sleep of my life once I get there! 

 

I wish I could pay for my wedding now, I have to pay once I get there...boo! I think I'm still on budget or at least close...it'll really depend on the exchange rate at the time I think!

 

The FI is going to a Bar with the work crowd to watch the Game so I will be at home do the first round of packing my suitcase with the Jays on the TV! GO JAYS!!

@Meandhim I know, I actually can't believe how close you are!!! I know exactly that feeling because each day that goes by and get's closer I get it in my stomach. Some people have asked me.. why? haha, i'm not really sure, but I can't really explain it. I think it's the anxiousness and obviously everything involved because I don't think i'm ever going to feel like i'm 100% prepared for this wedding. Each time I finish one thing I still have a list of things to get done. I can see why people lose weight close to their wedding.. I've lost most of my appetite and i've lost some sleep.

 

Are you also paying in USD? 

 

Oh man! Packing tonight? it's getting SO REAL!! I'll be watching the Jays from my condo. I know they will be putting it on at work, but I'm usually out of here by 4ish.

57 days?? Wow, weren't we at over a year when we started chatting? I can't believe how quickly time is passing by. I'm seeing all the Christmas ads now and I'm freaking out since that would mean we're a month out. So I can't imagine how you're feeling. 30 is a fantastic number and I'm hoping we get there, I think we're at 24 right now. If we don't, I'm ok with that too.

Please post pics if your dress, I seriously love your dress. I still remember when you sent me pics when you found it. I was out for lunch with Der and I got all excited, Der thought I was going crazy lol. You will look breathtaking in it!

And the game was playing in all the TVs at work. I think I was the only one working lol.

@perianjay Can't believe you're at 57 already!!! I totally hear you about your stomach being in knots. Reading your post that you're at 57 days made me check my number too! Time is totally flying by. 

 

I think 30 is a great number for your group. The first destination wedding I went to had 30 people and it was perfect. Our final payment deadline is next Friday and everyday I'm anxious, feeling like I'm going to hear about someone dropping out any minute. 

 

Can't wait to so you in your dress again!!

@snswedding2016 Ahh final payment! We had 5 or 6 people drop out before final payment (2 of those being my ex MOH and her bf). We aren't upset though, we are actually really happy about our number. We've tried to stay positive about it because 30 was the number we were happy with from day one.

 

Time is flying by so much and it's crazy! I know that these last few months will be really bittersweet for me. I'm a bit sad now that all of my fun planning is over and I know once the wedding is over i'm going to have the wedding blues. This past year has been a whirlwind of emotions for Chester and I, but I wouldn't change a thing.

@perianjay!! Ah!! I'm so far behind on here. I've been so MIA on bdw lately. But everything is looking so awesome. I saw a few of the bachelorette pics on Instagram but all the extras you shares here are so fun and adorable. You have a seriously great group of friends! You're giving me ideas to tell my sister for mine haha. It looks like you ladies had so much fun, and you looked gorgeous as per usual!

I love your chalkboards like always. You are so talented. And the monogrammed lights are adorable! I love the gold wood print on them!

I'm sorry to hear that people dropped out, but it sounds like it worked out better for your budget and numbers anyways! It makes me worry that someone will drop out of our wedding and leave us paying more (wont be eligible the free wedding). Everything is looking amazing with your planning! You are the kick in the butt I need to get a move on with my stuff!
