hope you've all had lovely weekends...
an update from me:
this weekend could be summarised as taking 4 steps forward and 2 steps back! lol
we got our wedding bands delivered on Saturday morning - great
except I don't like mine! lol it's the same width as my engagement ring and first thing FI and FMIL said was 'you can't see it!' the diamond in my engagement ring makes my wedding ring disappear. so we've now got to send mine back and TRY to make out it was sold wrongly so that I don't foot a third of the bill, AND pay for a whole 'nother ring! fingers crossed I will just have to pay to get it changed, as I will be making it 2 mm wider which means my 2 diamonds in it will also go bigger - OUCH to my budget! but as FI said, you've got to wear it for the rest of your life so if it needs changing, that's what we'll have to do.
On Friday we found flowergirl dresses for FI nieces - soooo cute. when they both came out the changing room holding hands I nearly balled it! got so chocked up, and in a way, that made it all feel more real seeing them like that.
Also sorted out my remaining bridesmaid's new dress (we wanted to get her a better dress kinda as a thank you and also as she's now on her own). thought, 'great, sorted' then went to order it online today (so we had a brand new one) and it says there's either a problem with the link or they're not stocking it anymore...arrrggggggggghhhhhhhhhh if its the latter, I am going to have a nervous breakdown....this was the only dress we found that everyone agreed on in about FOUR shopping trips! so please keep your fingers crossed for me! (you'll all know soon enough!! lol)
inserts are done after a nightmare - i did them in Publisher on my PC, and then sent them to my email so i could open it on my dad's (which has the printer) except he's got a mac and doesn't recognise Publisher. Then copied it over on my Pc into a word doc and after much more fiddling about, got there, sent it to myself again, but when I opened it on my dads, it didn't like the changes I'd made to it in word! so FI just rewrote it all out in a word doc on my dads pc and we just had to forgo all the fancy editing and formatting. but hey, its done now.
got our gift cards finally sorted after FI decided he didn't like the one we did in the shop and so did a new one online. then he decided he didn't really like that one and wanted to add to the one we did in the shop. long story short, I made it be ok with the one he did online and we just added some more things to it. so i then could write the gift list number on all the cards to go in with the invites! lol
and finally...don't know what you will make of this, but on Friday I found out my BF (the one who's dropped out - you all remember that?! lol) is going to the Dominican Republic with her boyf for a week, just the 2 of them (her birthday present)....just a week BEFORE we all fly out for the wedding. think im in shock or numb because I really don't know how I feel about that or if I feel anything at all.
ah well....I'm off to stuff envelopes with all our invites and inserts, so night all
