Hello all!! Hope you all had lovely weekends
My friends wedding was awesome It was such a lovely day, I blubbed loads but I am so excited for our wedding now! Just 25 days to go and only 13 more days at work! Yay!
Yep I had a wedding dream last night, I dreamt I went to pick up my dress and there were loads of people there and then when I took my dress out of the bag it was black, I was really upset too Stupid dreams who knows what they mean?!
As for lists I have a mountain of them! I have nearly finished all my DIY bits too! I cant believe its coming round so quick now!
I havent suffered too badly with dreams yet. Though I did dream that one of the diamonds in my ER fell off and I got really upset in my dream, but other than that nothing!....bit worried what I might be in for closer to the day!
Your all so lucky having time off before the big days! Ours is mental...
I have the friday off (h2b still working!) to sort and organise that we have eveything packed and in the car ready, (then going to see the new Twilight film with MIL), then we're driving sat and sun, meeting our minister for the blessing on sunday afternoon. Meeting our registar for the first time on the monday, then its take everything upto hotel monday evening, and go for a meal with my family before saying goodnight to my fiance for the last time!
Then tues morning I'm decorating hotel, then we get married!!!!!! Wed its driving home day! Then friday it all starts again for the reception on sat, then we have sunday and monday to see family off before we go back to work on the tues!!
And with h2b being a butcher he cant have any time off before christmas/new year (and it gets worse as one of they're full timers had a motorbike accident- he's ok, broke his wrist, and 3 fingers on the other hand! could have been much worse, he was really lucky! - and is out of work for at least 8 weeks!!!) so our honeymoon isnt untill the new year! I'm knackered just thinking about it!!!!!!!!
4 weeks today, and strangly I'm feeling quite calm, and...dare I say it?...prepared!!!!
Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh you win on the mental wedding preps Mandy!!
Not sure thats the best thing to win, but I'll accept my award gratefully! What do I win? A fabulas honeymoon? Maybe amazing fireworks for the reception? Oh no I know....massive sleep depravation and then exhustion!!!!!!!!!! (tee hee - I dont do things the easy way!!!!!!) Never a dull moment at our place!
LMAO you're nuts!
But regardless its the day you want your way and it'll be awesome
I'm laughing about it now, but believe me you do not want to be in my parents house on the morning! Between me, my two sisters, their 4 kids, and my mother - who bless her always takes the cr*p from me and my sisters! - I'll be a total stress head!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why'd ya think I'm insisting on being at the hotel in the morning to decorate - I'm a control freak and need the excuse to escape the mad house for a while!
Enjoy your evenings girls - I'm gonna bank some snooze time while I can! zzzzzzzz
that is a WONDERFUL brother! very nice. I paid my videographer, chocolate fountain, rings & church fees last night, ouch! lol.
florist tomorrow (I'm off, yay!) and discuss logistics with car people, and also see the minister to discuss order of service. also going to order place cards now the last surnames have been confirmed
feel organised this week, wonder how long it will last
Wow VERY nice brother indeed! (We'll be lucky if h2b's brother actually turns up, in a suit, and doesnt swear infront of my young nieces, and nephew! Let alone gifting us with a wedding present! )
Well, I've had a productive few days - favors, menus and placecards done. Thank You gifts sorted, and organised and in their bags along with their Tshirts for the morning, and fur shrugs. Washed and organised candle holders and got them (almost) boxed and ready to go! and finished the Order of Services with confetti enveolpes! Phew - was a busy evening yesterday!
I got playing with the aqua beads this morning for our candle aisle decs! (They are so much fun - I may be embracing my inner child today! ) and they look great! Only cost about 99p and probley have enough for all 6 candle holders, though I will buy an extra pack just incase these dont look so good when I have to Rehydrate them! (I dont mind at 99p!)
Today is my afternoon off, and with my back killing me from all the sit ups I've been doing, and being knackered after last nights flurry of activity, I will be spending it curled up on the sofa with a frothy coffee and catching up on Sky+ before heading back out to work tonight!
Have a good afternoon/evening girls xx
Aww thats a lovely gift from your brother!
Well I have just paid the registrar, I still need to sort out music though and I had better get my skates on as we're seeing the registrar on Saturday! We got our final bill from our venue which was less than we both thought it would be!
I really need to get my skates on with the rest of the DIY stuff, but I have the weekend to do that.
Mandy I need to take inspriation from you over the sit ups! I have no motivation for exercise at all and I have put on weight this week Not a happy bunny! Still I have a few more weeks to try and squeeze myself into shape!
Nothing else to report really, am feeling a bit down as the H2B is away for work, he'll be back tonight though I think I just need a cuddle!
cyber hug on route to you!
I know the feeling, mine was due to go off on wed but it got cancelled with the helicopters being grounded after monday's incident.
going for a nice relaxing facial tonight, i saw some spots poking their way out & want them out & away! plus its always a nice treat, i love going to the beauty place for nice treatments
Oooh enjoy the facial! I could use some relaxation I can tell you!
Oh Manfaw I'm with you on that! cant even have a nice relaxing bath in our house, with one bathroom it's like picadilly circus with all the ins and outs and additional bath toys!
I'm actually looking forward to being the otherside of the wedding so I can have my house back, it's just so cluttered right now. We have little space anyway and are hoping to extend/move early next year so having even less space does not help the amount of "argh! there's no space in here!!" feelings!! haha!
I spoke to my sister the other night, she was making teh fruit cake layer of our wedding cake...it's 12inches, so big she had to go and buy a 10litre bucket to mix all the ingredients in because she did't have a big enough bowl lol!! Feeling very real all of a sudden!
Girls - we get married this month!!!! I think i am last on 30th, but who is first?!!
No1babybear gets married today! I am not sure what time though!
Eeeeeek I cant believe its November and we're getting married this month!
Cannot believe we're all getting married THIS MONTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Eeeekkkkkkk!!!!!
Well I still havent had my hen night, and still dont know the date - tho I'm thinking it must be this weekend??? I did however get given this very cryptic invite from my MOH:
Times a ticking, Watch the clock, Before you know it you will be hot. A winter treat is not far away, Soon enough there'll be Shadow Play. So watch your phone and you will see, The time has come for fun and Glee.....
Now, we're both huge Gleek's, so I'm thinking maybe some kind of Glee theme, and I know we're going somewhere, as opposed to a night in, as she had a huge HooHa over a venue change with a couple of friends, but as for Shadow Play?????? I'm clueless!!! Any ideas ladies? And being Hot? again I thought maybe spa day, sauna and what not, but that doenst make sense as she said my dress and heels were great, so I'm so confused!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LOL I would just relax and let what ever it is happen! You'll love it no matter what!! But it is exciting not knowing!
thats very exciting & cryptic! 28 days for me, eek!
manfaw when is your wedding?
in 15 days!
I was fine when I knew nothing - I could forget, but now I've been given that riddle its driving me crazy not being able to work it out!!! Oh well fingers crossed I'll find out tomorrow morning, she promised me she'd let me know the morning of, so I can prepare!
Sorry girls I should have looked at your countdowns!
I need a ticker! where do you get them from?
Just click on somenes ticker and that'll take you through to the website to make your own! Have Fun!
Well its not tonight!
But I did just get some sad news. My MOH has just informed me that 2 of, what we thought were close friends, of ours have fallen out with her over my hen night. So I feel awful as obviously its over a night thats supposed to be about me (there is no way to put that that doesnt sound big headed!!!) These friends are now refusing to come to my hen night, something about a change of venue and them messing my MOH about over whether or not they were coming. She wont tell me the full story till afterwards coz she doesnt want to taint the night, which is really sweet of her, I just feel awful for her - shes been through a hell of a year already and I wish she hadnt had to deal with all this cr*p on top.
Weddings eh? Bring out the worst in people - you deffinatly know who your real friends are by the end of it!!
(sorry for the mini rant!)
Rain now - clear and crisp on our days!!!
Yeah, it seems to be a load of hoha over very little - a 'he said she said' situation I think. I've basically said I'm staying out of it and dont want to know anymore! And yeah my MOH is brilliant!
Had a good last minute shop-a-thon today, and iced 2 of 3 of the wedding cakes, and had a play with our reception center pieces (tho forgot to take my camera with me so no pics ) Stupid printer is still plaing up tho so need to sort that, but so far so good.
