OMG is it really only 2 weeks already??? It's going to fly by!! You've got it all together so it's going to be perfect!! Love all the stuff you've done. The guests will love it all! The bags are great, your itinerary cards are cute. The packing will come together too, not to worry. Time is winding down...... !!

Wow, everything looks amazing! Your guests are going to be blown away with their welcome bags. Can't believe you only have two weeks left, but you've clearly planned everything so well that your to do list looks super manageable

So ladies I'm down to 11 sleeps...I should be well into my 11th sleep right now but as most past brides will tell you, this close to the wedding you really don't sleep that much. I did have a couple of days for Christmas where I didn't really do too much for the wedding and that was kind of a nice break but now that we're so close and Christmas is done...we're back at it!!

 

To do list...

-Finish set up document for Azul Fives (Still need to add a couple more things and it will be ready to go!)

 

-Exchange US money!!

 

-Send out my gift for my TA (It's all packaged and ready to go!)

 

-Buy Sean's shoes and white dress shirt (Done and done! We found some great boxing day discounts. The stores were crazy but it was worth it. We also went with one groomsman and he found his shoes and shirt as well!)

 

-Finish groomsmen gifts (We still need to pull the trigger on this one. We're finding it so tough as all the guys are different and have different tastes. We might end up doing a couple different ideas and getting the guys a range of things but all costing the same amount. We're toying with a portable speaker, fitbit, and a leatherman)

 

-Print photos for display (Do NOT do this one Christmas Eve. I wasn't planning on going that day but we had to go to get other things done but I ended up waiting in line to print these pics for over an hour!! At least it's done!)

 

-Finish escort cards (made separate Kid's menus but now I just need to print and cut them as well as add the names to the seating chart)

 

-Get playlist back from our friend who is putting it all together for us (meeting with our friend on Wed to go through how to use the music app.)

 

-Started packing our clothing suitcase with most of our summer clothes we're not using at the moment. 

 

-Finish vows - we started brainstorming tonight

 

-Continue to hand out welcome bags to Toronto guests (I can get rid of two more tomorrow!! woohoo!)

 

 

NEW

- Finish kids menus

- Buy more lace for candles

- Buy extra batteries for candles

- Buy a couple more small frames

- Write thank you cards for bridal party and thank you speech for reception

- Confirm hair and make up appointments for bridesmaids with AF (they have been pending for a while now)

 

 

 

Dec 23 - Waxing appointment and going to see Kinky Boots  smile.png

Dec 25 - Christmas

Dec 26 - Boxing day shopping - last minute deals for last minute items we need  wink.png

Dec 27 - Extended Family Christmas Dinner

Dec 28 - sit down to write thank you cards and speech (evening)

Dec 29 - Renew our license plates! Take our niece to the museum. Dinner plans. 

Dec 30 - Meet with our friend about wedding music & pick up dress!

Dec 31 - New Years Eve

 

Jan 3 - Mani/Pedi with Maids of Honour

 

Jan 6 - we leave for Mexico!!!

 

**Waxing Review- So I've always been a bit too scared to try waxing but thought if there was ever a time to do it, my wedding would be it! So I ended up trying Sugarmoon in Toronto that does sugar waxing as it is supposed to be less painful and better for you with the natural ingredients in the sugar. I have to say it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. My esthetician was really nice and informative (apparently I have a high pain threshold - she was surprised at my first time reaction). I would definitely go back there again and would recommend this place to anyone nervous about trying waxing for the first time.  :)

 

Processional song update

You may remember that Sean's family was going to record my processional song. Well with everything going on and some recent injuries this didn't end up happening. At first I was quite disappointed because I did give them a lot of notice but at the end of the day I'll still have the song I want. The irony is that now that I have come to terms with that, Sean's family is saying they want to try and get it done now. We got the call like 2 days ago about this. We keep telling them not to stress themselves out because it's the holidays and I feel like it will just drive them crazy trying to rush to get it done. It is a lot of coordinating as it would be his mom, sister, two nieces and a close friend. We're kind of hoping to talk them out of it now because we don't want it to cause tension between anyone.

 

Guest update

We found out this morning that one guest had to back out. He's a lawyer and his case just got pushed and the judge wouldn't let him reschedule beyond our wedding week. He is really disappointed. His wife, baby and mother in law are still going though as they can't get the money back so they might as well come since it's paid for. 

 

Ok that's it for now. I will try my best to do another update before we leave! can't believe it's so soon! :D

@Smellsey & @snswedding2016

Okay so I've been getting waxed on and off for the last 10+ years by the same lady and every time I go she just shakes her head. She tells me (in her nice way) I have the lowest pain tolerance out of any of her clients. Always says it will get easier but for me, it never does lol I do find my legs hurt way more than anything else though.

Sugaring may be the way to go?! I'll see if she offers that :)

@Smellsey don't worry my list freaks me out too! haha! sending you good vibes for the waxing! ;)  Hopefully it won't be too bad for you either!

 

@ashhtayy try sugaring!! I have nothing to compare it to but it really wasn't too bad. Check out Sugarmoon - they had great reviews online and I loved my experience. They have 3 locations in Toronto. :)

Air Transat - Option Plus Baggage Allowance

I was starting to confuse myself with what is allowed so I called last night to verify I understood it correctly. For anyone travelling with Air Transat here it is:

 

22 lbs - carry on (per person) **This does NOT include your garment bag for your wedding dress or your personal item - ie. your purse

66 lbs - checked baggage (per person) you can have multiple pieces (no limit) as long as it is under 66 lbs total

 

Hope this helps!
