The countdown is on!
I feel like I'm way too chill for this haha.
Last night they gave us our possession date for our home, Sept 11! So that means, only 3 weeks after we come back from Mexico. It will be great because I'll have something else exciting to look forward to instead of the wedding blues . Last night I started with the nightmares again haha, I dreamed that I started packing at 2pm and we had to be at the airport at 2:30. Then my bag felt so light that I knew I was forgetting everything haha. Then my house was all weird and they had done a bunch of things wrong. It was just terrible haha.
Today I booked all my appts to get beautified before the wedding. I feel like a gremlin right now, trying to let all my hair grow out (from everywhere) so that I can wax and thread properly in a couple of weeks and nothing grows out while I am in Mexico. I feel gross right now. The only appt missing is just the mani and pedi.
I also worked on the timeline for the wedding day, again. I am so paranoid about this thing! I'm pretty sure I've asked this question before, for those already married (probably only @calgarybride2015 hahah), how long did you allocate for getting ready pictures? These are important but I'd rather spend less time on these and get more pictures of the reception. Is half an hour ok? Do you think we'd be able to get both, girls' and guys' getting ready in that time? We have two photographers by the way, or one photog. and the assistant. I don't know if that makes a difference.
I also e-mailed our Canadian officiant today. Since we're not doing special vows or exchanging rings here, we decided to do a reading. We're also not doing a reading in Mexico, so I think it's a nice way to keep both ceremonies special . I picked a quote from The Notebook, because I love that book :
"I love you. I am who I am because of you. You are every reason, every hope, and every dream I've ever had, and no matter what happens to us in the future, everyday we are together is the greatest day of my life. I will always be yours.”
My Canadian MOH just texted me today, apparently the zipper on her dress wasn't closing properly and getting stuck, even when she didn't have it on. So she went to the bridal store today and they recommended her that she also get the dress taken out a bit, just in case. It will be done by Aug 5, and we leave on the 9th, talk about last minute! hahah She just said that she wanted to be safe so she could eat all she could at the wedding and not have to worry about the dress being too tight .
That's all the planning so far!
