I cant believe that we are now only 5 months and 29 days till the big day. I am soooo excited. Any other 6th July brides out there who are excited. 2 years off planning and we are nearly there. Yay xx
Everything is booked. Just waiting for my dress and bridesmaids dressing to arrive and then i have evrything for the big day just gotta pay for the big things now. xx
Im 6th July too xx
Sent the invites out last week, Carly57 i really hope your ready for the gillotine! they seem to take so much longer than i thought they would, it took every night 6 weeks to get them done, so know moving on to the next DIY project - favour boxes!
Im actually starting worry slightly now about the run of things on the day, just hope i can relax and not worry about people enjoying themselves.
How did the full quote come out mrsclg2b, was it too scary?
We got the invites out at the weekend, was very exciting but almost like giving a baby away, we put so much time and energy into them!
Well, not bucking the trend, we went to look at hire suits the other day and h2b completely changed his mind and we're buying suits from Next instead! It actually doesn't come out too costly, the suits are quite good value and he doesn't have ushers so it's only for him, best man and my dad... he did look fantastic in it too
Hope all is going well x
113 days!"!!!! xx
Wow. Loving all replys. Now we only got 97 days to go. its gonna come round soooo quick. We have sent all invites out and nearly have all our rsvps back. we started at 150 guests and now have 118 attending. Nearly completed all our DIY bits, just got our table plan and wish you were here board. We have done cake boxes, order of service and confetti cones ourselves. We have also done our own lucky bags for the kids.
Have had a big dilema with my dress this week. The company i ordered it from sent it too the wrong address. It will not even in my postal area as dress was sent to some in Preston, Lanc. Thats Over 200 miles away from my address. In process of trying to get dress sent to me.
Bridesmaids dresses arrived two weeks ago and they are all perfect. Some of them need a few changes but my maid of honour is going to do them for me so wont cost me too much.
Paid a few more bits of this week like the sweet table, chair covers & table clothes and some of the videographer.
The only thing i need a price on is my flowers but waiting for my local florist to get back to me, but it seems to be taking her forever.
Its all coming together but with only 3 more wage packets i just hope we can do it.
Next thing on my to do list is to sort out my hen night .
Hope everyones planning is coming along x
Hopefully my dress will all get sorted soon. Just awaiting emails from the lady who has it and the company that sent it.
I love the idea of chutney. My Maid of Honour is doing personalised heart cookies for everyone, she is a good cook. She and her mum are also doing my wedding cake but i have no idea what it looks like. I have just given them my ideas and they are going from there.
Well i want to plan my hen party but my mum and maid have said that i cant. Only found out today that they have it all sorted. I am a complete controll freak to and want to know what is going on.
Have found it heard to get my OH to plan his stag do. He still dont know what he wants to do. Men Hey.
Wow. Parents only just meeting. Ours already knew each other which was fab and easy for everyone to get along. Hope it all goes ok
Happy Easter x
No dress yet. Hopefully it will be here by the end of the week. I am soooo wanting to try it on.
Most of my partners family declined, i am quiet upset about this as he will not have much family there where as all my family are going.
Today i ordered all the bits to make the kids a lucky bag to keep them occupied during meal and speeches. Thats the last bits now, just gotta pay for everything. But with only 3 months left its gonna be really really tight.
My sister made my confetti cones for me and then i ordered the confetti from ebay which saved us about £50 instead of buying already boxed confetti to use. We have hearts in our wedding colours.
I loved doing all the DIY bits best bit i think
Your meals sounds lovely. We have already chose and tried our and they are lovely. The guests have had a choice of STARTERS - Cheese & Bacon Potato Skins or Farmhouse Pate, MAINS - Roast Beef or Roast Chicken with all the trimmings, PUDDINGS - Sticky Toffee Pudding & Custard, Apple Pie & Custard or Strawberries & Cream.
All this food talk is making me hungry xx
Hehe. Thats what my OH keeps saying but if we only live to our means we will be able to do it. Just gotta tighten our purse strings. We will all get there, cant wait to see everyones pictures xx
We have the same problem about people mixing but now partner has only a few family members we have decided to mix two tables of family together which includes my family and his family as it was easier then sticking just his 6 family members on one table. I feel sorry that no of his family have bothered but all he keeps saying to me is that as long as i turn up he does not care which makes me smile all the time. Things are slowly coming together now. Its scary how close it is.
Got a family wedding this friday and after it the next wedding will be OURS. so it looks even closer now xx
