    Chase certain suppliers

    We are so far behind. image

    Our invites haven't even gone out yet - my fiance seems to think that because he's chatted to people via email/facebook the actual invite isn't such a big deal.

    I also have to lose about 7lbs so I can actually breathe in my dress!

    We need to order all of our alcohol.

    Finalise flowers.

    Create playlist for DJ

    That's probably it, not much when you write it down but the invite thing is really bothering me!!
  • It's less than 10 weeks until our wedding and we're similar to you, we have to:

    Buy flower girl shoes and head dress

    Buy best man gift (that's not tacky)

    Rsvps deadline 1/5/12 then chase people

    Table plan

    Sweets and labels

    Make menu and poss quiz for table

    Order or service finalised

    Buy some additional garden games

    Confirm decorations with venue

    Sort out guest book alternative as don't like one I've made now

    Make up trial and buy any further products

    Whiten teeth with strips bought!!

    Tone up and do some exercise

    Book trains and activities for honeymoon

    Just lots of little things really but they all add up, I could think of more but I'd start to bore you all!

    Hi all!

    How are we all doing?

    Ive now crossed one more thing off my list image h2b has finally got the measurements for his best mans suit- hurrah!!

    I cant believe how many people havent rsvp'd though- theres a couple of girls who i would have classed as good friends that havent even acknowledged the invitation!!! image
  • Sam0407Sam0407 Posts: 489
    Thats great about the suit measurments! image I cant wait to cross more off my list, but i cant really do any more untill closer to the wedding.

    I know what you mean about the rsvp's im starting to get frustrated about it, we have only had 10 back and 4 of those were to decline! image

    Maybe you ladies will be able to put my mind at rest about this situation thats been bugging me! It has recently occured to me that we didnt order a suit for h2b's dad, i didnt think about it, how many of you have got a matching suit to the rest of the bridal party for h2b's dad? I hope he wont feel left out. image
  • NicH2B12NicH2B12 Posts: 164
    Yeah we're having issues with people RSVPing too. Still waiting on 11 replies for the day. Although some people have told my parents and sisters that they are coming but have not told us!!! 'Ive given the date of 30th March to reply so first week in May i will send a standard text to those who haven't yet replied and ask them to tell us or they will not have their place reserved!!! May sound harsh but they've had months to at least sent a text.

    We are hiring a suit for my dad sam but only coz he insisted image as long as both dads don't have hired suits I don't see a problem xx
  • Not really achieved much in the last week or so, our RSVP deadline is 1/5/12 and the wedding is 4/6/12, we've had a lot back already, some people think that saying their coming is enough but that doesn't tell me their food preferences!

    We're hiring suits for fathers of bride, groom and best man. Groom bought own ted baker suit & ushers have choice of hiring or doing their own thing but getting them all matching ties & hankies.

    New thing to my do do list is book choir for church service (at £80!)

    When are you buying sweets?
  • We are not having matchign suits but if we were i think i would have one for both dads. image
  • Sam0407Sam0407 Posts: 489
    Oh why didnt i think of h2bs dad! im really worried now as i have a suit for my grandad (who is giving me away)to match ushers/best men But not h2bs dad. I really didnt know the formalities of it. we have already paid out for 7 suits at £100 each, and so our budget is completely blown. image
  • NowMrsB2012NowMrsB2012 Posts: 4,835
    Could you ask him if he wants a matching suit and give him the option to pay for it if he does?

    I got a phonecall yesterday to say the dresses have been altered and are ready for second fitting image Going in may for my 2nd fitting coz i want to lose a bit more weight and my bms dont need extra fittings coz the only had length altered.
  • kathryncr27kathryncr27 Posts: 297
    We don't have any RSVPs...but that's because I haven't sent the invites! Oh dear. A job for the weekend I think!

    Yes I'd suggest you speak to his Dad and say it'd be lovely for him to have a matching suit if he'd like but unfortunately you have no money left in the budget. He might be really touched but didn't feel he could ask if he could wear a matching one. Or he might not want to, in which case that's fine too and you've offered image x
  • NicH2B12NicH2B12 Posts: 164
    Think i'm gonna get dad to take me to Costco next week to have a look at the sweets they have and may also buy some retro sweets online too.

    Put our wedding rings into jewellers yesterday for engraving and we also ordered placename cards. Had to chase up a couple of people due to no rsvp but looks at the minute that we will have 70 guests in the daytime.

  • kathryncr27kathryncr27 Posts: 297
    Ooh Sam mine's 12th May too! It's a shame they didn't run the date past me first (they forgot!) - I'm working 12 days in a row (5 of them 13 hour shifts) in a new job, finishing on the Friday evening when my hen weekend starts. I wouldn't say anything as I know they've gone to loads of effort but of all the weekends before June - I'll be shattered!

    Anyway I don't know what we're doing yet, they'll tell me near the time.

    How exciting! image

    PS. what's an adult playzone?!
  • NowMrsB2012NowMrsB2012 Posts: 4,835
    Well I have one less thing to do now...

    Ive been to the gym where according to the fitness instructor the scales are correct and I am actually HALF A STONE UNDER MY TARGET!!!!! Woooohoooooo! Ive lost half a stone more than I thought I could!!!!!!!!!!! image

    My hen is 5th May weekend image no idea what were doing as my bridesmaids are organising it, very excited though!
  • kathryncr27kathryncr27 Posts: 297
    Half a stone over?! That's amazing! Did you change your diet much too or was it mainly exercise? Well done, I'd have a bun to celebrate image
