We get married next month!!!!!!!!!

We can finally say that next month we'll be getting married and every single time I think about it I get butterflies in my tummy - I have a feeling that October is going to drag!

So what has everyone got left to do?

I still have RSVPs to chase (grrrrrr why are people so slow?!)
I have my hen to come this weekend - Yay!
We've still got to see the registrar and decide on the ceremony wording / music
Got to go back and see the venue and confirm everything
Got to START my table plan and finish my place cards (DIY jobs)
Got to decide and stick to what I am walking down the aisle to (this changes on a daily basis!)
Got to start wearing my shoes in
Got to lose about 7lbs (which I know is never going to happen I have only had 20 months to do this......)
Got to stop PANICKING!!!!



  • so excited!! 40 days to go ...still seems like a big list of things to tick off, including:

    • Dress fitting - first one tomorrow
    • Hair and make up trial - this weds
    • Cake ordering
