    I am also an Oct 20th bride!

    Things are coming together but at times I feel a bit overwhelmed bcos I'm doing everything!

    I've told him he has to choose the mens suits and waistcoat patterns etc and that was too much for him! Men!

  • tinainwidtinainwid Posts: 277

    Everythings done now and all paid for.

    Just H2B to do the few things I,ve left him to do.. choose his wedding ring and suit etc..

    He said he,ll do it in September as thats in plenty of time.. grrr.. men!

    Oh I do have the wedding music to sort for the registra and then thats all.

  • Ah Tinainwid you are 1 lucky girl...

    I feel I am a million miles off being ready!

    I think once we meet up with the suppliers again that we chose over a year ago it will set my mind at rest.

    I still havent sorted my 'look' yet...Still to decide on headband/earrings&necklace- Doesn't help I have changed my mind a million times! from simple to blingy, blingy to simple, half and half lol.

    We havent purchased any gifts, we haven't selected music, and the little decor touches are still in planning...*sigh*

    We are getting married on 20th October. We haven't done anything!! Nothing at all! No venue, no dress, no invitations, nothing! And I'm still smiling!

  • MrsWilsonMrsWilson Posts: 429

    We still don't have anything done! 104 days to go and we don't have a venue or a dress or anything! I'm starting to worry slightly now. I live so far away from my friends and family that i'm going to have to go to the dress outlet shop on my own! How sad is that?!

    How is everyone else getting on!

  • Aw hun, if u need any help/advice just give us a shout Im sure we will all try. Where abouts are you from?

    Ive sorted my hairpieces and hair do since I last posted. Ive been to see our florist and sorted out all our flowers.

  • MrsWilsonMrsWilson Posts: 429

    I'm from Scotland but I live in Leicestershire. My mum lives in Perthshire and my friends live in Dundee, Aberdeenshire, Fife and Co. Durham. My mother in law to be lives in Plymouth and my 2 sister in laws to be live in Madrid!

    I'm felling slightly isolated on the dress front! Might just get one online! H2b suggested taking me to a nearby factory outlet shop and sit the car waiting for me! Bless him!

    We,ve done most things just got to get the invites out and wedding music to do..

    I,m moving house in 6 weeks also so its abit more stress for me to cope with especially as I,m uprooting my family from East yorkshire to Nottinghamshire. then we have to travel back to east yorkshire for the wedding as all our family live over that way.

    Glad you've got further along MrsWilsontobe, have you thought about checking out your local bridal shops for sample sales? might be a nicer experience for you if your going on your own, and you can get some great prices image

  • MrsWilson2be I went and bought my dress by myself, long sorry but I ended up doing what PollyAnne3 suggested to you and went along to a sale day.the assistant in the shop was really fab as were the other brides and their helpers in terms of telling me what looked ok and what looked fantastic. I have since taken various people to see the dress when they're be been visiting, and everyone has loved . Good luck and enjoy, even by yourself you still get to feel like a princess image
  • MrsWilsonMrsWilson Posts: 429

    How is everyone getting on? This thread has gone very quiet!

  • I found out something lovely about our wedding date today!

    Our wedding date is an American holiday! ‘20th oct- sweetest day’ what is Sweetest Day? Sweetest Day is a day on which we celebrate romance, love, and friendship, showing our appreciation for friends, family. While it has yet to take its place alongside Valentine's Day as a holiday for pure romance, it grows in popularity each year, as people raised with the Sweetest Day tradition tend to carry it with them into new towns and even countries.

    No matter your feelings about Sweetest Day, one thing is certain: a day for people to be romantic, kind, or just to show their appreciation is always a good thing.

    The date changes every year and it wont happen again til 2018!

  • Oh how lovely Autumnbride, thanks for sharing that it makes it all the more special.

  • Can't quite believe we are under a month to go now!

    I have just done a new 'To-do' list & thankfully it's not too long now.

    Hair & make up trial is next Saturday, worried I may have left it a bit late but I'm sure it'll be fine!!!

    How's everyone else getting on?
  • I,ve decided not to have a hair trial.. I just booked a senior stylist for the morning of the wedding in a hairdressers next door to the hotel i get marrried in so I know its a gamble but I,m sure that it,ll be fine as i,m having an easy style anyway.

  • ARGH! My dress arrived today while I was at college! I can't wait to try it on! Just waiting for my other half to go out!

    I'm not having a hair trial either, just winging it on the day!

    Still waiting on some RSVP's! grr!
