Yep it will all seem fine after that!
If it'll make you smile your welcome to have a laugh at my expense...I had two planet sized spots on my chin at the end of last week, these have now moved upwards to either side of the bridge of my nose so I now have what looks like a wierd, painful, piercing through the top of my nose! If that doesnt make you laugh Nothing will!!!
Have a nice relaxed night! xx
I hope they go down soon!
Me too - I look ridiculas (Seriously - even h2b couldnt stop laughing at them!!) aswell as being sore, one or the other but why both???!!
(Hope it made ya smile tho )
You make me chuckle!
Oh dear - manfaw I now have a 1 in my ticker and now understand the panic that that single little number creates!!!!!
Its suddenly dawned on me theres only about 7 1/2 weeks to W-day and before then we have:
This is going to take us to roughly 5 weeks before our wedding!!!!!!!!!! And somewhere in there is my, still as-yet-unknown-date, Hen night!!!!! Not to mention I STILL keep adding to my DIY list!!!! (I'm a class A idiot and glutton for punishment - but everything is just so pretty I HAVE to incorporate it all somehow!!! )
Do you feel better now you've got that out in the air Mandy? ;o) that sounds like quite a busy diary!! Having said that...there's always time for cake making!!
I have now finally got my hen night dress....didn't get the Jane Norman one in the end got a similar one from Littlewoods. My bank balance has slightly recovered, enough at least to see me to pay day this week so thats a huge relief!
I'm at the 7 weeks and 2 days count down....where n earth has that time gone?! 2 and a bit weeks until my first hen do, then the next weekend is my bridal shower, then it's h2bs birthday and before you know it we are in November!!
might be a good idea to get some shoes for the wedding around about now.... I keep changing my mind, i will post pics so you lovelies can help me decide!
as you can see i'm going for Silver shoes the boys all have siver ties and our daughter has little silver glitter ballet pumps with a bow on the toe.
the first pair are really glittery and more silver than they look, I haven't tried any on yet but what do you think? My dress is tea length, white with black sash so they will be seen!
bride2be2411 I think they're my favourites too and at £40 they're quite reasonable! I do love sparkly shoes!
Do you know much about your hen party or are you like some of us and being left completely in the dark?!
Abi: definatly the second ones! They're fab!
Bride2be: a cocktail class would be my idea of heaven! I still have no idea when or what mine is!!!
Abi I love the last pair but I love high heels!
Well I had my dress fitting and the dress fits! I am not allowed to lose or gain any weight, but I defo want to tone some bits up! So I dont have to pay for any alterations but I do have to buy new knickers as white knickers show through the dress....
I had my make up trail on Monday which I am IN LOVE WITH! I looked so glamourous and everyone I have shown has loved it!
And last but not least I did my boudior shoot yesterday.... EEEK! It was fun and worth doing I felt amazing afterwards I just hope the pics are worth the money!
I am sure it will be fine, I have gone for something that isnt "bride" like at all so I think my MUA was really surprised, once she had finished we made a few tweaks and it was perfect.
All I would say is be honest and dont back down if you're not happy!
How about something like this - print out pictures of your guests and put their table number/name next to them?
or a picture of your table names ie, London next to a picture of the London skyline
or something a little more vintagey, but change it to match your colours?
Or could you use the frame for something else and go down the new Escort Cards route? You have a table with all your guests names attached to an item and on the card with their name is their table number? Then they can always just choose which seat at the table they sit so you dont have to worry about place names too?
This one is particualy cool as you'll have to drink lots of wine to get all the corks 1st!
ooooo I really like the vintagey gift tag type one! I like the escort card idea too and i thought i could tack the name cards to the glass of the frame so i'ts still used, as I've only got 40 guests they should all fit.
Otherwise i thought about getting some really glittery card to use as backing and then do the names on the squares for each table?
does it matter if the squares aren't layed out like the tables in the room? I never thought this table plan could have so many options!!
No, they dont need to placed out in the same way as the room, so long as the numbers are easily seen on both the table plan and the tables themselves it'll be fine!
I think the glittery card sounds awesome, and you could still incorporate the tag idea, instead of squares if ya wanted?
You could have Shiny Black Tags, with lovely satin ribbon out the top, and then layer on top a white piece of card (you can get some lovely pearlised card on ebay really cheap and it looks fab - just gives it that really stylish finish!) with the names printed on. (or you could get someone with good handwriting to write them on in calligraphy?)
So it would be - Names on white card, stuck on Black card shaped like tag, on the glittery silver backing card!
(I think I may have put a bit too much thought into this! Oops! )
We want pictures once its done!!
I dont know whether to bother with a table plan? We only have about 20 guests and we're all round one big table - but I feel like I'm missing out on something else I could make if I dont do one! Hmmm what to do, what to do???
Urgh the table plan nightmare has begun in our house we've argued already Still I am the one who has to make it so even if I am not happy once its printed its done.
We're going with boring, square cards with people lists - I am not very artistic!
Men! (nearset smily I could get to blowing a rarsberry!)
But it sounds really lovely! I think I will have to do a table plan - just not sure what style to go for!
ok so picture....
As it stands at the moment i could just change the background card and we done but i think i will add a little more to it....as probably redo the hearts on card as they are just on paper at the moment!
Glad I redid the table plan, I haven't got to make an awful lot of things so glad I can have an "I made that!" moment!
It looks great! Once you have the silver backround its gonna be awesome! I would deffo look to ebay for 'posh' white card tho to give it that polished finish! (Are you having a sweetheart table just for the two of you? I love that idea, gives you a lovely chance just to take some time with each other to really absorb the day!)
I'm kinda stuck for ideas as to what to do for mine now, we are having one long rectangle table with us all round it, so escort cards wouldnt work, I dont really need one, I just want one! . Any inspiring ideas?
ok so its only been 20 mins since my last post - but google and a slight lightbulb moment, and I have decided on my table plan!
I've ordered a plain wooden framed mirror from ebay for bout £6 and am going to paint it metalic blue, and add a few of my leftover roses to the corners, then do a basic shape of our table in the center with the names on label shapes to match our other staitionary in nice crisp white paper, or I might see if I can get a silver (non permanant) marker and draw it onto the glass!
I'll hav a play when I get the frame sorted! (I think it'll look nice to pop a photo in the center afterwards too!)
Ooo more DIY to do!!

Mandy I love it! You can get white pens on confetti.co.uk that write on glass that are removable! That might work? I've got some black and white card that is black one side and white the other so I could do the hearts on that so if they move you see both colours and then the sparkly glitter card as background! I don't think I've been so excited about a table plan lol!
Ooo, thanks for the pen tip! I'll check it out!
The black and white card sounds brilliant - you could even write your names and date on the back of the names so that would be a surprise when people take them off.
Table plans...who knew!
Mandy that last line made me giggle! Really made me think of the Disney film Tangled (its on a lot in our house!) when the hero says "frying pans.....who knew?!" Totally unrelated but thought I'd share!! On another note, I got my shoes today!!!! Whoop! They are so lovely and very sparkly! I went for the second pair.....from Schuh the last pair in my size too! My h2b was impressed I found them so quick but when it comes to shoes I'm like a magpie I can beeline for sparkles like nobodies business! Lots checked off the to do list today, gave notice at last, sent off my passport in my married name (now glad I practiced my new signature as I had to sign it with that!) also go h2bs tie and decided on all our official wording for our ceremony! Day 2 of operation wedding planning blitz tomorrow then back to work Wednesday when in theory I should be well on the way to being complete!
Glad ya got ya shoes - it was ment to be if they were the last pair left!!!
I had a productive wedding weekend too - fruit cakes made, and finished off the crystals for reception centerpieces! And have started to make the sign for our thank you shot, it says: All Because Two People Fell In Love. Next on my list is make and freeze chocolate tier of cake, glitter up some pinecones for the reception centerpieces, and finish off sign. (And make the table plan once the frame arrives!!! )
Still lots to do, but getting there!
