  1. Hi ladies I just thought I’d pop in and say hello, most of you will not know who I am but I’m the OP that created this thread and I’m so pleased to see that there are still so many UK brides on here. The ones that remember me will know that I am no longer getting married in Mexico, we changed it back to the UK because of important family members not being able to fly to Mexico and I have to say it was the best decision for us. Our wedding date is now fast approaching, Saturday 30th June 2012 and I am so excited, everything is coming together nicely, because Mexico was such a
  2. Hi Ladies I can't believe it's been a whole month since i've been on here the days are flying by so fast. Firstly a quick catch up. Welcome to all the newbies, really looking forward to hearing all about your wedding plans over the coming months. so happy to hear that your mum loved the mum journal michelle, i'm hoping that my mum will love it just as much, i can't wait to give it to her, i think i'm going to do it on the morning of the wedding as i'll be staying at hers, before everybody else comes around and it is just the two of us. Loved your
  3. Nina - so pleased for you about your dress, the design looks lovely, I really love the ideas you've got for your TTD session Sam - how exciting about your dress fitting and hair trial... have you got any pictures of your hair trial or rings. Michelle & Nicy - HAPPY ANNIVERSARY Michelle, Nicy, Lisa - You don't need to feel like spare parts or stalkers...you're all originals and I love beign able to still talk to you girls xx
  4. Thanks girls, I feel like such a weight has been lifted off me. I was stressing so much about how to pay for everything and starting to think we'd made a huge mistake choosing to get married here for the family over Mexico, i'm just so relieved that it seems to be working out now. We had a budget set and we're still sticking to it but this will just ease up the pressure a bit.
  5. Wow girls, there must be somebody up there looking out for me!!! This morning I go and collect the post and i've got a letter from the Claims Guys (a company that get back credit card charges for you), I put in a claim with them about a month ago for a credit card I had about 8 years ago, I got in a bit of problems about 10 years ago with debt and it took me a while to sort it and I was getting charges on the credit card. Anyway I put this claim in with them and didnt think much of it. They've managed to get me back £800, they deduct their fee of £200 (which is a bit extortionate, bu
  6. There isn't really anybody in the family that can help us out like that. My mum was made redundant last year March and has been looking for work ever since, but despite this she is still buying my dress for me, bless her. I'm not really close to my dad but have started to make an effort as i'm getting married, he doesn't earn alot of money but said he'll try his best to give me about £1000 towards the wedding. However my grandma has recently become ill so he has taken unpaid leave for the last 3 months to look after her, so really don't want to ask him for any money. OH's parents haven't
  7. Hi ladies OK so the past couple of months i've been stressing so much about the finances of the wedding. I'm effectively paying for it all as OH job is only part time (work reduced all of there hours instead of having to sack people) and he doesn't earn alot at all (he has been looking for full time work but there is just nothing out there, so just greatful he has any money coming in at the moment), I've been putting as much money aside as I can afford each month and got spreadsheets of the cost, how much i've paid, what's left to pay etc but I'm still short and don't seem to be closin
  8. Herbie, how cute does Hollie look, just like a little princess, she is an absolute stunner, her dress is gorgeous x
  9. Hi girls I've been having a look at wedding jewellery and am clueless as to what style to get. I've come accross these two necklaces that I like, what do you think, or should I keep looking? I'm not sure about the large pearl on this one!
  10. Thanks Michelle, I love the dresses too, the girls chose well, they all look stunning in them. Isn't the journal just the sweetest thing, my mum will love it and will definitely cry when she reads it, she means the world to me so I just want her to have something special from me. Your bouquet is beautiful, I like simple but nice xx
  11. Fantastic review Michelle, so glad everything turned out perfect in the end, can't wait to see the picutes xx
  12. i've been on the hunt for a bridal bouquet, which has been surprisingly difficult as I'm not really a flower person and don't like a lot of fuss, but I've really fallen in love with this one, i'd probably just add a couple of more purple roses in though.
  13. I had been racking my brains to find a gift for my mum to give her on the wedding day. I didn't want to just give her a bunch of flowers, I wanted something a bit more personal. Anyway I found this lovely little journal it's called 'My Beautiful Mum' and it is a journal from the Bride to the Mum. It has little statements on a page and then you fill in the answers. Some of the statements are: A little written note of thank you How you helped me through my pre-wedding jitters My favorite pic of us What makes you so unique as my mum If tomorrow never came, what would I say to y
  14. So I decided a while back that my bridesmaids could choose their own dress, the only rules were that they had to be purple and they all had to decide on the same dress. They ended up finding one on ebay that they all loved, I've ordered them and they are just beautiful and all the girls look gorgeous in them, they were such a bargain as well £50, but because I was ordering 8, they did them for £40 each. I know its a bit early but the seller on ebay said they were going to discontinue them soon and we didn't want to miss out. I've got a friend who's mum does adjustments and she said that th
