Here we will post our wedding journey and give you the behind the scenes look at the planning and prep that we are doing.

22 days!

Here we are at 22 days left until the big day. Most of the stuff is done but there is still some assembly work left. For the most part, it is just time to have some fun and watch all the hard work come together. We are looking forward to seeing everyone! Get out those dancing shoes!

How quickly times passes!

Here we are at 45 days until the wedding. Sure there are still things that need to be done, but they aren't overwealming since we have been doing things as we go along. We had our food tasting at the Mess...it was all so delicious! We are even going to have real silver utensils (and other stuff too). I don't know who has that much time to clean the amount of silver they have in that place! Burnett and Struth called today and the sash is in already! Can't wait to go and pick it up! Maybe...

Successful Shopping Trip

We had a great shopping trip to Barrie today. We went to Burnett and Struth where we got the sash of the McKay clan tartan as well as some more tartan to put under the wedding cake to decorate. We also made it to Michael's where we got flowers for the centrepieces that we are making. We are getting closer so get those RSVPs in everyone! And don't forget to sign the guest book!

68 days until the big party!

We are getting much closer! We have a whole bunch of RSVP cards in but we are still missing some, so get them in early (I don't want to call all of you :P) I'm also glad to hear our invite made it to Australia in one piece! We got our pictures back from the photographer and they are fantastic! I will make sure I update our website picture section as soon as I can. I am making the ceremony programs right now...just trying to find brown cardstock, but I'm sure with a little internet...

Did I mention we have cake?

We met with the Chef not too long ago to decide what we wanted to do with our cake. She was quite nice and let us browse a large portfolio, sample 10 different (and quite yummy) cake. We picked all the design work and the flavour combinations (I can't spoil the surprize just yet!). We can't wait!

We have dresses!

The girls and I went shopping this weekend and they now have dresses! I can't wait until they come in! They certainly looked awesome and will be even better when it comes in their size and in the colours we asked for. They were quick and easy to shop with, so there was no stress at all. I hope everyone is getting excited! We are at 131 days people...let's get this party started! Don't forget to add your music requests and sign the guestbook!

Invitations

This is the next big thing on the to-do list. Since we are making our own invitiations, we need to order the paper soon to have enough time to make them. We are very thankful that Larry knows calligraphy and has agreed to write out the invitations for us. What I am trying to work on in the mean time is the invitation wording. There is a lot to keep in mind and I want to make sure that it is all phrased correctly. I'm sure we'll figure it out once we have a chance to sit down and really look...

Time just goes by so quickly

It feels like just yesterday we were under 200 days...now it's 188 (funny enough that it happens to be my squadron number, haha!). I am just finishing up my workshop for childbirth education and I have a presentation today. I hope it goes well. My topic is caesarian birth. Thankfully, it's only 15 minutes and I'm using my 10 years teaching experience to back me up. The lesson plan was different from what I'm used to but nothing I can't handle. It is pass/fail so here is to hoping that my 10...

Less than 200 days

Here we are at 199 days until the wedding. I can't believe it is all going so quickly! Still lots to do...but that seems to be the norm these days. I have a prenatal class booked for this weekend, so my new business is getting started! It should be a good time and now I'm just getting a few things together for that, and cadets. Jamie is off to a survival exercise this weekend in Borden, hopefully that goes well too. He didn't plan it but he is picking up the pieces :) Can't wait to party...
