@Wafflesmom Thank you!! Hopefully I don't plateau.. 

 

Tulle skirts are adorable!!! I pinned so many cute ones on Pinterest for engagement shoots. When are you doing your shoot? We're thinking summer.. we want to do a Toronto Skyline backdrop for ours. I saw the lace one on there too.. Super cute!!

@perianjay you won't plateau, think positive thoughts!!! We're planning to shoot our engagement photos in May. I was hoping to take pics during cherry blossom season but spring came early this year so the cherry blossoms will be gone by then . It would have been such a nice backdrop with the tulle skirt!

So Derrick wants an outdoorsy background and I want a cityscape setting. To compromise we're going to do it in a place called Habitat Island. It's an urban sanctuary created during the Olympics to make up for the lost animal habitat in downtown Vancouver. So we get the cityscape background but the natural outdoorsy feel combined!

We're also going to take pics with Waffe. Are you including Kimchi and Dudley?

Just means you need to change up your diet or exercise to break thru it. You will be 100% fine.

@Wafflesmom that sounds beautiful!! I'm pretty sure no matter where you do them in BC they will come out stunning! I'm excited to see them.

Yes, we're going to have our friends come along so they can hold onto the dogs. We want them in a few of the shots for sure! Haha.. They're are kids. So glad you're including waffles too!!
@calgarybride2015 thanks! :) I'm going to find anyway to push through.. I gotta look and feel my best for the big day

Weekly Update

 

So.. after much stressing about the deposits (I worry a lot), it is a week until deposit deadline and 95% of the deposits are in. So far so good and it looks like we will have enough guests to have our unlimited events as well as our trip for free.

Really happy about this and feeling the weight of the world has been lifted from my shoulders. We may have a few stragglers that decide closer to the final payment date, but that's fine..I can't control those.

 

I ordered my bridemaid dresses, my shoes and my groomsmen's bowties/suspenders (The Grunion Run - Great reccomendation from this forum) so I am super excited to upload all of these goodies once they arrived.

 

I purchased blush table cloths from a past bride and wasn't sure if it would be 'enough' or not, so I decided to order champage sequins table runners for the tables as well as a champagne sequins cake tablecloth.. also very excited to receive those.. they are in transit now.

 

Once I get all my goodies I will be posting them up to share.

 

ALSO, for any Canadian brides who are looking for LED white paper lanterns, try Dollarama in the party section (where the wrapping paper and wedding stuff is).. I found some for $1.25 each with a built in LED light. I purchased 10 of these and may get some more, but plan to use them at the welcome dinner/rehearsal dinner and also maybe line the pool ledge with them at the reception. They are small and light so i'm not worried about packing them either..would be a nice addition since the going rate of any type of lighting is $150 per string. These lanterns even have hooks.. so technically they could be strung..

Ou nice find with the LED paper laterns. 

 

So many questions for you...lol  but first I'm excited because it looks like the BM dress I ordered arrives this Friday.  I'll definitely let you know what I think of it.  I did find the vendor slow.  Like I purchased the dress but it took 5 days for her to ship it and I told her I was in a rush.  I feel like the entire process took a month.  I am excited though! 

 

Where did you order your champagne sequins cake tablecloth  and runners?  I've been looking for something like that and may rent them through Love and Lace in Playa del Carmen.
Congrats on the deposits!  That's exciting! :)

@veryvalentine www.chaircoverfactory.com :) The champage is now sold old though.. they were having a sale.

 

Please let me know! I'm super excited. I noticed there's a delay too.. I ordered them and haven't received anything from the seller yet either. Hmm.
