    1) In 17 days time (!) - September 6th.



    2) Berkshire in good ole England.



    3) In church - actually I thought I was talking to his identical twin! Didn't know he existed at that point... Little did I know I was meeting my future husband for the first time :\)



    4) The church service... We've spent a lot of time planning the order of service, choosing the hymns, the prayers, vows, songs, etc. Everytime I think of the service, I'm excited - we'll FINALLY be married!



    Which is all that matters most at the end of the day image



    5) Seven - my sis as chief bridesmaid, and six others... Erm, it seems quite a lot, isn't it? image Also one junior bridesmaid, 3 flower girls and a 'little bride' (don't ask!!!)



    Well, it's only the once image



    6) My dress is made-to-measure (couture), so it's still being made - it'll all be finished next week though by the grace of God.



    7) I'm so uninterested in favours, so I've let my Mum do what she wants... I'm sure it'll be keyrings, bowls, etc. - all the usual from the Naija crowd for all those who know what I'm talking about!!! ;\)
