@TinkerSofi did I ever mention on here I got searched at the Washington border coming back with my maracas. He probably didn't believe I drove to the USA for maracas but I sure did :)

yeah I think it read it on your thread lol. They were probably considering putting those maracas through an x-ray lol

I pulled into the wrong bay and my car may have made it Into the filming but they quickly made me back out. :)

@calgarybride2015  omg!!!  hahhaa

 

So a few updates...  in addition to a new wedding coordinator, we have 4 new guests attending.  At this point we have decided that all the last minute attendees are not getting welcome bags.  lol   It's too hard to keep adding items for extra people.  We can add people to our reception up until the day before so that's fine and we have the budget for it, the more the merrier but we are not going to keep updating our guest roster and welcome bag numbers.  Too stressful.

 

 

Our flight leaving on June 14th was cancelled.  Our travel agent noticed yesterday but the good news is we now get to leave June 13th.  Our flight on the Sunday originally got us at the hotel at about 10Pm which was annoying because we basically miss an entire day at the resort but definitely pay for a whole day.  

So now we are leaving at 6am on Sat and will probably be at the hotel by 11am.  I have butterflies in my stomach...and the extra day is complimentary!!  yay!  The only bad thing is that we had arranged for  our legal marriage for the sat and now we need to move it to Friday and we are still waiting to hear if the officiant is ok with that!  ahhhh. 

 

*keeping calm!


@calgarybride2015  one more question!  Did you fly sunwing?

Sounds like a lot of us got flight changes. Mine moved to the Saturday too but I was actually happier because people flying in had less days missed at work!

No I wanted to use Sunwing but they were expensive at the time. We used Air Canada.

I'm glad that the change in flight kind of worked out. I love arriving to the resort early. I'm the type who just cannot hit the ground running, I need a day to adapt to a new place. 

 

I actually had a dream last night that I was packing and when I woke up I thought I had two days to go before the wedding. I woke up with butterflies in my stomach haha. You're getting so close!!! I'm sure things will work out with the officiant, even if you guys have to move it to a weekday (that are probably less requested), at the end of the day the legal ceremony isn't the most part for us DW :). We ended up with a friday but at noon haha.

I am leaving in 5 days!  My brain can't even process it!

 

We are all packed!  I pick up my dress tonight for my final fitting- can't wait, very excited!

 

I'm probably going to be offline until after the wedding!  It's such a crazy busy time, and full of soooo many emotions.  I just started bawling out of nowhere yesterday because I was just full of happiness that I'm getting married to such an amazing person.  I feel very lucky these days. 

 

The fiance suddenly discovered his graphic design talents just in time to design our guest welcome books!  

We are so in love with them!  Here are a few pics.  We even included a picture of Toronto during a snow storm where it was -35c.  The picture says, "Too hot for you?  Winter is 187 days away so enjoy the heat!"   ha ha ..we know people will complain it's too hot but maybe that will give them a little perspective.

I was able to organize a small little surprise for the fiance!  I have a sapphire engagement ring and the FI thinks his wedding band is a simple gold band but I just had a sapphire added.  He won't see it until we exchange bands which will probably surprise him quite a bit.  

i thought it would be nice for our bands to match a little.  Mine is white gold and he wanted his to be 18K yellow gold...but at least we will have the sapphires to tie us together.  

 

eeeeeee!!! so excited!

Oh my goodness! I love the little welcome brochures! They are absolutely perfect. I don't blame you for taking some time to yourself before the wedding.. same with the emotions. I know I will be the same. 

So very excited for you and just want to wish you both an amazing and safe trip with a beautiful wedding and many good times.

We all can't wait to hear all about it and see your beautiful self in that dress!!!

 

:)
