    I went for this.....

    XXXX, you're going to have a lovely day

    As you enter married life

    Look out for the girl in the big white frock

    You'll find her very nice

    Take your place by her side

    Squeeze her hand with a loving touch

    Say "I do" and she will too

    For she loves you very much

    She knows you really love her too

    And that you'll always be her rock

    These presents come with the fondest love

    From the girl in the big white frock

    I'm getting mine made by this company: they are personalising teh head over heels card, £10 and doing the text inside for me, putting it in a presentation box and covering it in vellum. x

    I think we're off out to find a guest book and buy gifts for people so i might have a look while H2B is wandering off...

    I am going to use this poem, i think it's really sweet.

    I Will Be Here

    Steven Curtis Chapman

    If in the morning when you wake,

    If the sun does not appear,

    I will be here.

    If in the dark we lose sight of love,

    Hold my hand and have no fear,

    I will be here.

    I will be here,

    When you feel like being quiet,

    When you need to speak your mind I will listen.

    Through the winning, losing, and trying we'll be together,

    And I will be here.

    If in the morning when you wake,

    If the future is unclear,

    I will be here.

    As sure as seasons were made for change,

    Our lifetimes were made for years,

    I will be here.

    I will be here,

    And you can cry on my shoulder,

    When the mirror tells us we're older.

    I will hold you, to watch you grow in beauty,

    And tell you all the things you are to me.

    We'll be together and I will be here.

    I will be true to the promises I've made,

    To you and to the one who gave you to me.

    I will be here.

    Thanks for those card recommendations, it's really hard to find a nice one isn't it! xxx
  • Oh dear! I found a lovely card in a little off the wall card shop.

    I wrote it on Saturday whilst he was out but didn't think of a poem.

    I just wrote

    To my goregous almost husband

    I can't wait to see you later and to stand up in front of everyone we care about and who cares about us, to tell them that I choose you.

    See you there!

    Maybe that is a bit naff now!

    I'm having h2b's wedding day card handmade with these lyrics from a song I love....

    All I'll Ever Ask

    Love means so many different things

    But you're all that matters

    And this is all I'll ever ask of you.

    Tell me your dreams so they can be mine too

    Let me be there to help them come true

    Tell me your fears when you feel afraid

    Come to my arms let me rock them away

    That's all I'll ever ask of you.

    Come to my shoulders when you need to weep

    Wake me up when you cannot sleep

    Talk to me when you need to be heard

    Be silent with me when you can't say a word

    That's all I'll ever ask of you.

    I can't swear that you never have to cry another tear

    But when you want someone to hold you

    I'm always right here

    So just take my hand when you stumble and fall

    Call my name it's yours to call

    Feel my faith in you when you can't find your own

    And always remember you're never alone

    That's all I ever ask of you.

    I've also written a very personal message for h2b as well. I showed my best friend what I'd written and she cried and said it gave her goosebumps - but I wrote what was in my heart. If h2b lets me I'll post it after our wedding.

    137 days to go..........
  • fluffymovie... I totally love your message. It sounds like it sums up your relationship because you've written it just like you would speak to him! I wondered guys is this an american tradition as I've never heard of it before? I'm assuming the groom recieves it before the wedding?
