11 for me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Am back in work until Friday then I am off until the wedding!!! I think its a good job my boss is off and I dont have much to do, but on the other hand I am a little bored so its making the days drag on!
Also I am in trouble..... H2B has banned me from looking at the weather reports - I got a tad, lets say upset, when I read that they were forecasting torrential rain and gales for the weekend of our wedding
Still there isnt a lot I can do about it, but I would have liked it to be at least dry!
Mandy sorry to here about your hen, but its true it does seem to me that weddings and hen nights really do bring out the true colours in people... .sad really because its not about them at all, but some people just dont realise it.
Yeah your right, I'm not so bothered for me, I'm more upset on my MOH's behalf - one of the girls causing probs also works with her and is dragging the whole thing into work life now too. Its compleatly stupid!!! But enough about that!!
We're all getting really close now!!!!!! 14 days for me!! Though I did have an awful thought this morning...in 3 weeks time I'll be back at work after the wedding!!
Paid tog today (finally, you wouldnt think it'd be so hard to give someone money!), hired a beautiful blossom tree for the backround of our photo area for the reception and bought a whole load of little bits I keep forgeting about!
Also it seems that MIL wants to 'gift' us the money she lent us for the wedding instead of having us pay her back! I'm waiting to talk to her before holding my breath, but if its really what she wants it'll mean we might be able to move at the end of next year instead of the year after which'll be fab as we currently live in a one bed flat with 'lots of charactor', read, no double glazing or insulation and no central heating, with wonky floors!
Good luck for your last weeks at work ladies!!!!!!
Thats the prob - most of the wedding time off is being spent driving about! But it'll at least be alone time with my new Husband!!!!! Then I get to look forward to Christmas and then 2 1/2 weks off at the beggining of January for our honeymoon!!!!!
Good luck next week girlies!! xx
Abi its true it IS next week!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Also I just had a call about a job interview, next week! LOL I am going to be a complete wreck! But sod it I am still going I really dont like my current job!
Mandy defo dont think about it, I am looking forward to spending my first week as a married woman in a different country - I'll deal with the rubbish work aspect at 9am on the 26 November
Good luck with the interview!!!!! I'll keep everything crossed for you!!! xx
Awww thanks hun!
And breathe Abi!!!!!
Im fairly sure doubts are par for the course - lord knows I've had enough! Your dress is going to look gorgeous, you'll be a stunning bride and your h2b cant wait to marry you and will think you are the most beautiful woman to have ever walked down the aisle, so dont panic!!!
All the choices you've made for your wedding will be perfect, just remember, they were all chosen for a reason, and come the day when it all comes together, you'll see that everything was right! And having a smaller amount of people will be wonderful as you'll be able to speak to them all, know that they all are there because they want to be and love you both and want to celebrate with you (not just there for the free food!!!! )
As for the other girl getting married 1st - hers is done and dusted, you've still got your fabulas day to come, so enjoy every last second!!!
Relax, and try to enjoy the run up!
And next week, when its my turn to be only a week away and I'm stressing like a maniac, could someone refer me to my own words of wisdom please!!! Thanks xx
Abi dont panic, I think we all go through the same stresses!
I am worried my dress is boring and isnt going to wow anyone and also that I should have made more of an effort to lose weight. Thats all too late now, I have 9 days to go. Also my dress is in the shop and I an not picking it up until the day before the wedding - so Iit'll probably be creased.
I have loads of little things still to sort out and I now have also decided a job interview 4 days before the wedding is a good idea.
I am so tired I could probably sleep for the next 9 days solidly and it doesnt help the H2B suffers with night terrors so I am woken up pretty much every night.
I am feeling constantly sick and to top it all I have a feeling another 2 guests are going to pull out......
I cannot wait for the 18th November when I can finally rest and call myself a Mrs!
See dont panic! We're all in this together
Thanks ladies for the reasurrance! It's a big help!
I kind of feel like I want a full dress rehearsal of the wedding so i can go, no don't like that bit, that needs more, that I love, that was pointless.....but obviously I can't! It's so weird I'm normally happy with what I decide, I know what suits me best and what will look good but totally doubting myself!
I'm hoping a weekend of sorting stuff out will help calm it all! It does not help that h2bs suit trousers are too big and need taking in, but he has no time to go somewhere to get them done! so i have my mum coming round this evening to see what we can do!
Manfaw my h2b gets night terrors too so i have sympathy for you there! he's also got a horrendous cough and cold so I'm currently sleeping on the sofa (he doesn't fit otherwise I would have turfed him out!) because he coughs so much through the night...plus i don't want his germs!!
One more day at work, some of the girls in the office are doing me a little lunch do to celebrate then we are going for a curry in the evening, can't wait! I think it's what I need to just chill for a bit!
And of course Mandy, we will all be here to remind you of our own madness and that we in fact all as mad as each other! lol!
7 days to go!!!!!!!!!
Is it your last day tomorrow as well? I finish tomorrow and we're all going for lunch which I am really looking forward to!
I know what you mean about the dress rehersal but hey, I have got to the point now when I think sod it - if it happens it happens. Plus I have just checked the weather again and it looks dismal! But what can I do?! I will have to just get on with it and enjoy this day we have been planning for ages!
Mandy dont worry I am sure we'll be around to assure you you're not going mad!
9 days! = Excited, sick, nervous, giddy!
Yep last day at work tomorrow, luckily I finish at 2pm so really it's only like half a day!! hehe! we will be celebrating at the same time!
I haven't actualy looked at any weather reports, that's one thing I'm not really bothered about, I like it when it's dark and raining and cosy inside! May buy 2 nice big brollies just in case it's really wet!
I think once I get into next week I will be a bit better, after the mad panic of not getting everything done but that said I haven't got an awful lot left to do!
Manfaw, what time do you get married on 18th?
I get married on the 17th! But its at 2pm what about you?
LOL I did the hovering in mine on Monday!
sorry to put a downer, I've just had a call from my mum, my daddy's in hospital, he has a long standing heart condition, and had been doing so well recently, but now he's caught an infection, and they dont know what it is so he's got to go in and have a whole load of antibiotics and I'm assuming tests to find out whats wrong! I've got a ton of wedding stuff to do, I'm at work and have to smile and laugh with the customers and right now I dont want to do anything but go see my dad, but I cant coz he's the other side of the country!!!!!!!! I'm sure he'll be fine - he always is, (just likes to make us worry) Just wish we lived closer so I could be there with him when things like this happen.
It's not going to be a good day.
I really really hope you guys alll have far better days - have lovely lunches girls!!! And woo hoo for your last day at work!!! Its mine next thurs so the countdown begins today!
Aw Mandy fingers crossed he is better ASAP hun, its a nightmare being so far away from your family, I understand how you feel on that hun.
I just wanted to say to all the November Brides good luck with your weddings! I am not likely to be around much next week as I am not at work so wont be sitting at a computer all day, but wanted to say thanks for letting me moan and giving me advice when I needed it!
I hope you all have lovely, beautiful, magical wedding days and I guess I'll see you all on the other side!
Thanks I'm sure he'll be fine soon, just not nice being so far away!
But have a FABULAS wedding!!!!!! See ya in a few weeks!!!
Cheers hun!! You too!!
Hope he gets better soon Mandy!
Aw manfaw have an amazing day & look forward to hearing about your day after . I'm also jealous that you & Abi are finishing work already, I don't finish until the 20th, boo hoo! Hope you both have nice lunches xx
