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..
