I have a fabulous Mum and great friends!!! Yay!!

For the last couple of months, everything to do with the wedding was getting me down (hence I have avoided all other forums except General Chat but will be back soon!!). It came to a head couple of weeks ago when we even considered just cancelling everything and either just living together or going off on our own to a registry office (which neither of us wanted). It was getting really stressful and all boiled down to money and was very depressing.

Then - my mum informed us last weekend that she is paying for the breakfast and evening reception. A huge and lovely surprise! Takes a huge burden off us as this was half our budget!!

AND THEN - one of the Sales Managers at work gave us the use of his apartment in Gran Canaria for week as a wedding present!!!

Within a few days we suddenly had the wedding we want and a honeymoon!!!

We're so lucky and I still can't believe it!!

YAY!! :\):\):\):\):\):\)

  • know what you mean munchkin! I only have 249 days left lol

    I would guess the happy dance is bit like the dance Happy Feet does!! lol
  • the happy dance is dancing like no-one is watching you and involves being happy. Other than that there are no set moves....go for it!! (although mine usually has some form of silly arm movements)

    Really happy for you pet

    Your mums support means a lot, though i think a few rows are a given!

    In my case a whole bl***y load of rows as my mum didn't have a big wedding and doesn't seem to think i should either and along with money shortage we are paying for it, though in terms of my hen this weekend, just enjoying it would be all i ask for you know?

    Took he women in my dress shop to hug me when i tried on my dress, just a 'yeh its nice' from my mum...but hey!

    Hope you get hotel room issues sorted, it is a really brain busting thing hey!
