        I´m thrilled about this trip extension! two days of crazy fun and then I´ll go on my honeymoon with my hubbie!! Some of my married friends have told me that after the wedding is over, you feel like you are missing some more celebrating! All this planning that goes into it is over in less than 12 hours! So I thought .... 2 more days to make the fun laaast!

            Whooo, ive had a very productive weekend :-)

             

            We have booked out AHR today!! Yipee!! Because we have been debating whether to have one and have left it so long its actually a month after we get back, but to me thats great as i can stay in wedding mode for that time when we get back and will still have something to look forward to and keep me occupied!!

             

             

            We've just hired our towns fooball club function room for £17 which is a bargain....

             

            I just love all this planning x

              All this planning, day and night, every day! I'm not going to know what to do with myself when its all done!

                What are you going to do for your AHR Nicola? are you having a rehearsal dinner before your wedding?

                  Hey nan, were having a diner the night before our wedding in Mexico but not a rehearsal as there are only 7 of us going so it wont be neccessary. For AHR, we will put on a buffet, i will cater this myself so were not having a formal meal or anything... just a good old knees up from 7pm until 12.45 :-) I will decorate the room etc, ive been to pay and secure it tonight and have a tour, its going to be fantastic x

                   

                  Cant wait :-)

                     SOunds wonderful! How many people are you having at the AHR? tell me more about it. I haven´t planned anything for mine yet. I´m still trying to figure the best for my rehearsal dinner.... who´s going? when are they arriving? when to have it? you know!

                      Hi nan,

                       

                      We are having our AHR at our local football club function room which is ideal for us as we live not even a 5 min walk away.... so far i have a list of 75 invites to write, in total about 130 adults and around 36 kids.... I have some family & friends coming up the day/night before as i live 6/7 hours drive away from some. I will not go all out with the decorating, i will just do balloons for the tables and favours in my wedding colours (aqua & white). Favours nothing to big, just a wee aqua organza bag with white love heart mints or something like that, I will have a DJ, which i have just booked tonight. I will be ordering a 3 tier sponge wedding cake, plain white icing, i have bought the ribbon to go round it, also i will use the cake topper we have bought for mexico (out initials) and i will be buying some cute little cutters of ebay in the shape of starfish and a palm tree so i can colour some icing myself (light blue) and cut wee star fish etc to put on cake :-) For the buffet i will just do a cold finger buffett... sandwiches, pizza, crisp, salads etc etc.

                      Im not sure what else i will do if anything... any suggestions????

                       

                      xx
