@calgarybride2015 Thank you My shower was so amazing haha the gum game is the worst - sadly it was my idea... but I will be destroying all photographic evidence lol. Thank you for the dress comment I want to look 100x better in it so I'm really cracking down! I was very surprised when I heard about Air Canada as well, like I said worse things could happen though and I'm just glad my TA is dealing with it all.
@ashhtayy Thanks love! The two friends that helped the most with the set-up/tear-down I knew would lend a hand but I didn't expect that much, it was really nice of them. Although, the friend I spoke to you guys about didn't do anything.. it was a bit awkward at first but I had so many ladies to interact with and was too busy to care really lol, and my sister and Colin were so incredible I didn't have to worry about much. I have my dress at my place, I was storing it at my mom's until I picked it up in January to have the corset put in, as curious as Col is, he has not peeked and I trust he won't, he's had so many opportunities to see pictures as well and he hasn't, he wants that moment when we first see each other as much as I do. I need to air it out before we leave for Mexico, so depending what days Col takes off work before we leave I'll have to coordinate that - or ban him from our bedroom for a few hours lol. Isn't it so exciting to think of everyone being together for a week? Our friends and families like yours are so far apart, the nice thing is that our parents have met, and some of our friends have when they came to visit me in London. Colin's bother got married in Brazil almost a year ago, so we're actually meeting our new sister-in-law for the first time as well. Their one year wedding anniversary will be 2 nights before our wedding.
@Wafflesmom haha aren't my little mums so cute! I have to say when Col walked in the room with flowers for us all (even though I knew it was happening) my heart dropped, he still gives me butterflies. My mom shocked me with that bottle! She got the idea off Pinterest - I didn't even think she knew what Pinterest was, she can't even figure out Skype lol. I think the cake topper is so pretty Like i said we couldn't decide so it made our decision really easy. Thank you for the dress compliment I really think he'll love it, his mum cried when she saw me in it I can't wait to see his face! The flight thing change did annoy me a little, I won't lie and I'm a worrier too, but I figure there are so many things that could have gone wayyyyyy worse that if this is it (fingers crossed) I'm getting off lucky.
@perianjay I loved the foil balloons! We almost didn't get them because the quote my mom got was $125 for 4 balloons and I could not let her do that! I saw someone walk out of a dollar store near my place with helium balloons one night so I asked if they did foil letters and they did and we paid $12 a balloon - which is A LOT more reasonable. I am so looking forward to everyone interacting, and to some people seeing those they have already met!
I don't know if I mentioned I had to get herbal supplements to help me sleep lol... well those are not working. Last night right before going to sleep Col asked what we have going on the next few weekends, and the fact that I could list every weekend up until our wedding was so unreal! It kept me up all night with my mind swirling and how I need to get my butt in the gym non-stop until we leave. Lot's of stuff to tackle in the next few weeks!!!
