This is mentioned early after the conspirators take their hostages. 3/4th of the Barrayaran forces 
on the Nexus side of the wormhole and they go ahead anyway. They were planning to wait for
the Emperor’s wedding, but events “forced" their hand.

   

<Quote> Near the end of chapter 17
“You're planning to shut the wormhole to Barrayar with the Butcher of Komarr and three-fourths of Barrayar's space-based military forces on this side, and you actually think you're going to get a bloodless revolution?”
