    Belated bridal shower/ combined hen & stag do images: Children's party style bridal shower: It's a knockout competition on the Saturday afternoon: Night out (joint stag and hen) on the Saturday night- I organised a scavenger photo hunt for added silly photos: BBQ on the Sunday:
  2. Okay, so I fly out for my wedding NEXT Saturday. So... with 9 days to go, I'm wondering, what did brides do in these final hours? Here's my list- I'd love it if people could add to it to help out future brides (and me!) who are so close, yet still feel so far! 1. Hairdressers is booked, as is a beauty appointment for my nails. 2. Luggage is packed (mostly) and weighed. 3. Emails of correspondence with vendors are due for printing. Kim xxx

    Just had our photos through for our cake topper- this is the one area that we've chosen to splurge on and not DIY and we're really happy with the results

    Haha, completely the opposite of my FI. He'll be out of his suit jacket and tie as soon as the ceremony's over, no doubt!

    Thanks a lot- on the home straight now!

    Thanks Haha "picked out" might be a bit of an overstatement. "Had it put in front of him and said 'yes'" would probably be more accurate. Your FI sounds like a glutton for punishment! I think the linen suit is going to leave Adam sweltering enough as it is.

    Thanks so much. We can't wait either- getting a bit more stressed as we get ever closer though!

    Thanks, I love it too; they're such a nice personal touch. Plus, I can keep it as a pendant to wear after the wedding . Thanks, it really is all starting to come together now . Can't believe it's finally just around the corner. Also, my passport pre-departure booklets have been sent out: Also, this weekend saw my Bridal shower/ Bachelorette party. Pictures to come soon!

    We're not having anything you'd class as 'big' either side of the pond. The DW is our 'big' event, though there will be 14 of us and then we'll be having a casual get together at our apartment afterwards, as FI's Dad unfortunately can't make it out there with us. My 'something old' arrived today- photos from my parents' and grandparents' weddings to be attached to my bouquet: Here's my home made sand ceremony frame: My Dad's tie decoration:

    So, there have been lots of developments in my wedding planning process, as we get steadily nearer to the Big Day! . Last month I bought my wedding dress (please excuse the bad hair and silly look on my face) It was a wonderful day with my Mum, Sister and estranged Grandma. It also felt like my Granddad- who I was close to, but passed away when I was young- was with us: In my dress I wanted a few thing: flowers and poofy. Not only did this fit those bills, but it is also by my fave designer (It's a Maggie! ), in my size AND 50% off! It only cost £500 ($700). He was definitely looking down on me . I also picked up a 'backup/TTD' dress, as I realised there was no way my main dress would fit in anything other than main luggage for the flight. My little sister has also had her first bridesmaid fitting: And my Mum has ordered her MOB dress: This is how I've decided I want my hair: There were some excess bits from my wedding dress, so I used them to create a new hair flower: I've created 'Mr' & 'Mrs' chair signs: And direction signs: And a Thank you sign (sorry it's upside down!): I also created a 'Shoes Optional' mat I decorated a ring box: I created floral wrist corsage bracelets for my Mum and my Mother-in-law, and decorated boxes to go with them (please excuse the missing letters!) We decorated our bubba kegs, which we picked up for a pound in our local "dollar store": And purchased hangers from a fab British Etsy seller, whose details escape me at this moment in time. Barefoot sandals were handmade for myself, my mum, and my two bridesmaids, as well as cards for them to be attached to: We decorated boxes for cuff-links for our Grooms-men and my Dad We also purchased a watch for the Best Man- which retails at £60, but we paid £15 for: We decorated our sparklers and created match-books: Designed menus (purple for carnivores, turquoise for vegetarians) And a cake wrap: A now has matching shoe soles to my 'I do' ones: After a complete cry-fest at our best friends' wedding (our bridesmaid and bestman) I decided to invest in a nice hanky Welcome booklets for when people get to the resort: Decorated the ties for our Grooms-men: Sorted CDs for our OOT bags: Bought a handkerchief for my Mother-in-law, who is also a known crier: More decorations: Glow Sticks for the reception: I'm sure there will be things I've forgotten, so I'll probably be back sooner rather than later, but if anyone has any questions, ask away- I'm more than happy to help! Happy DIYing!! Kimi x

    Thanks for the info- I feel a lot better now that I know that it seems to be quite normal to wait a while before getting figures. I know everything will be perfect on the day, but it's lovely to be reminded, especially with photos and a full review . Enjoy married life and thanks again! Kim x

    Congratulations, Butterflies! Your wedding looks beautiful and is making me all the more excited! Thanks so much for the review- it seems like an age since we last had one. Can I just enquire as to when you received your quote for your wedding? We're currently about 10 weeks from flying out there and I'm worried I'm getting a bit bridezillary about the lack of one. Thanks, Kim x
