OK ladies and BREATHE!!!!!!!!
We WILL get everything sorted, and what isnt done isnt worth worrying over - I'm sure we wont even notice on the day!! (tho having said all that I still haven't finished the evening invites that are ment to be going out to my extended family about.... oh, 2 weeks ago, and I still have no dress for my moh!)
11 weekends!??! aarrrgghhh! This is getting crazy!
So glad that you girls got your bridesmaid dresses sorted!
My hen is in 4 weeks so I'm currently really excited about that, when that is over I'm going to really start panicking! x
Haha! I am so glad I am not the only one starting to have a mini breakdown!!
Well I still have issues with my evening invites, I had one lot last week with the wrong email address so I called the girl who is making them and told her and she said she'd do them again and would drop them off to me yesterday, so yesterday came and she dropped them off and they still had the wrong email address..... I have not had any luck with wedding stationery at all! I think I am going to make the rest of it myself, even if it does look like my 3 year old nephew has made them!
So I am now waiting til Friday to see if I can have the evening invites, but at this rate it might be Facebook invites all round!
Also - I will admit defeat, I stopped doing the shred last summer after I ripped my thigh muscle and had to pull out of a race to rest my leg for 6 weeks - so me and Jillian parted ways, though I am now on a major stress and am aiming for 4 nights a week at the gym, last night was the first night in a couple of weeks and my arms are barely working at the moment!
i think i still need to decide on 30 day shred vs insanity. i'm planning to do it for the month of october so I'm sorted before final fittings. did you do the eating plans too or just got down on the rubbish you were eating? e.g. don't eat fajitas and a massive cheescake pudding in TGI Fridays like i did on sunday!
I must admit, I dont really know what the 30 day shred is! I chose Insanity because i love cardio workouts and I still basically eat what I ate before (as we speak i'm munching on a bowl of M&S spicy tomato crisps lol) and am still seeing results. Its hardcore though, I'm a sweaty, beetroot red pile of jelly on the floor by the time i've finished each workout but it is sooo much fun! I'm on the recovery week now so that means half way through, I'm dreading next week because thats when we kick it up a gear! Its hard enough now lol
For those that dont know, its basically a 90 day high impact, interval workout based around cardio exercise. Google it and watch the Infomerical, i was hooked from the first time i saw that!
I am sticking with the gym I think, I have a plan and MiCoach which is great - I am doing 40 mins of cardio and around 30 minutes of toning/kettle bells.
I am certainly feeling it today!
I just ordered 30 DS dvd, eek! hoping to fit in the 20 mins everyday. If i'm strict for a month and see results that should inspire me to keep it going til the wedding.
my h2b's niece is going to be a flower girl, she is nearly 4 and going thru the I'm not wearing that stage even though she picked it herself in the shop, so i think she coukld turn up on the day wearing anything! my h2b is going to pin the favours onto the little business cards so thats one fiddly job out the way. I have a week off from 17th Sept, my work gives everyone 5 additional days of annual leave in the year the get married, which is incredible! I'm using some of that time to embellish shoes, do tbale plan, make up trials etc
You are so lucky to get the extra week! My H2B does as well and I am the one that needs it!
Good luck with the 30DS if I start getting desperate I might have to dust mine off again!
Haha we've cancelled Christmas this year! I really dont have time for it!
A quick question about your wedding shoes though - Have you started wearing them in yet? I am worried they'll be filthy by November if I start wearing them now!
Christmas? I didnt think that was happening this year? Ah well guess thats one more thing that'll be done after the wedding!!!!! ( I kid - I LOVE LOVE LOVE Christmas!!! Would have had a christmas wedding if h2b wasnt a butcher! He didnt think he could cope with 3 weeks of 5am starts - 10pm finishes, and then a wedding!!! - I dunno what he was worried about really! )
My MOH has finaly decided to pull her finger out! Bless her, shes finished orginising my hen do - of which I know nothing about, not even the date! Apparently I'm not allowed to know untill the actual day itself! I'm so excited!!! AND she's ordered her dress! its really pretty too - not excatly what I had in mind, but I dont care anymore, just glad I can stop stressing about it! AND my sister has finished her part of my invites so I can get them finished and posted next week!!! Yea! Is it possible I might have a stress free week next week? (Doubt it! )
And to top off my good mood, my cheap as chips, evening veil arrived from china this morning! Its perfect! Ok, so some of the pearls, and the comb fell off before I even got it out the bag fully - but for less than £4, I'm just impressed it turned up! and actually I'm not that bothered that the pearls feel off as that gave me the idea to pull the rest off and replace them with sew on crystals as thats what I'd wanted originally anyway!
Feeling Good today!
You dont know the date of your hen!!! I would freak out if I didnt know something and I have to say I only know the bear minimum!
I had to know where in the world it would be - so London, I had to know when - so I could arrange to get there. And I have been given one more cryptic clue - I have to go dresses as Alice (as in Wonderland) but I am not allowed to buy a costume it has to be my interpretation!
Yeah - i thought I'd freak too as I'm such a control freak normally. But its actually quite liberating not knowing! And I'm kinda hoping I'll get pulled out of work one day as a huge surprise!!
OMG! I am so sorry to hear that - where abouts in the country is your venue? Perhaps we might be able to help/recommend something?
