Amurka - So sorry to hear about your dad - does your uncle realise you want him to give you away??? I'm hoping my son Joshua will give me away.... But at the lovely age of 14 he doesn't think it is cool.... Teenagers are not my favourite age at the mo.... If any of you have them then you will understand what I mean LOL

Hi Kerry,

 

Congratulations on setting the date.

 

I'm also worried about setting the right atmosphere.  we only have 4 guests coming & I'm really struggling with making sure they have as great a time as we plan to.  Its hard though, our wedding's booked for 4pm & after trying to work out all the timings etc, I think it will all be over be 7.30 latest.  What do we do with them then?  I'm not too comfortable with going to a bar in wedding clothes but feel it might be rude to simply send them on their way for the evening.

 

Have you thought about music etc, we're having a 2 hour meal / reception but I'm not sure how to 'keep them entertained'.

 

How are the rest of your plans coming along?

Good luck with the dress fitting todaysmile123.gif

 

Last week I had such a crap week,  had a fall out with my sons BF mum who are coming to mexico with us. My sons BF has been constantley putting him down lately (he is one of these boys who has to be the best at everything and doesnt like being beaten) and thursday they had Cross Country race which they were both in. My son was already feeling down due to BF constant little digs aboout test results from school, then on the final lap of their race my son went to overtake him and he shoved him on the bend (I let this go)

then it got to running down the tunnel to the finishing line and my son was in front and his BF grabbed his top and pulled him back. My son just burst into tears and got him self into a right state stuggling to breath (his asthmatic), I raced over to sort my son out and said to his mate that he was out of order. He then went to his mum and told her i told him to get lost, she went made saying he fell it was an accident. Like hell it was everyone saw except her that he grabbed him and pulled him back (even the teachers said he grabbed him). So now my sons not talking to BF as later it didnt stop there BF kept messaging him on facebook telling him everyone hated him, nasty boy! Now i dont know what to do as im not backing down on this one i dont like bullies!

Thats my rant over!

 

Question for those having AHR, are you having chair covers & bows on your chairs or just leaving them plain. I would like them as it makes it more wedding like but OH says its a waste of money. Arrrhhh men sorry another rant!

 

I went to a wedding fayre with mum at the weekend and we found out about a place called 'The Wedding Village' near me. They have Bridal Nights where you and your bridesmaids can go (1st thursday of every month) and have free hair and makeup trials, so i have booked us in for 3rd March. Why pay when we can get it done free.


I dont blame you for not backing down, i dont have kids so i cant say i fully understand, but by eck... i can only imagine what you must be feeling.... i hope it all works out lovely xx

 

Im leaving the chairs plain for AHR... as your future hubby says its just an added expence!!

 

WOW... wish we had something like that near me, going to cost me a fortune to get hair trials :-( My sis a hairdresser too... but she lives miles and miles away... hopefully when she comes to my dress fitting in March she will do a few styles for me to take pics of :-)

Where is the Bridal Village?  Thats excellent that you get free hair trials & make up....I am paying £50 per style for my hair trials!!!!  But our friends daughter is a make up artist & coming to Mexico so that is a little bonus!!



 

How did it go? How did it go? x :-)

(fingers x'd) then we'll be p***ed by time we have reception diner.... whoops!!!! x

Thanks for the compliments on the tiara. It really went well with my dress so i was very pleased. Can't wait for my hair trials on saturday i WILL post pix!!!! lol. (i'll just have to delete them off the camera.

 

Yep my son Harrison is 13 nearly 14 when we get married and although he has the teenage attitude at the mo he is really looking forward to giving me away. He's an emotional little sole he'll prob cry, bless him.

 

I think the time between the ceremony and reception etc will fly by. Dont forget you'll have a toast after the actual ceremony and then your pix etc. People can go back to their rooms to freshen up etc. I'm sure it will all work out fine. We haven't got a proper wedding day plan. We know our ceremony time and thats it at the mo. Not even sure what time our meal is as my WC has gone AWOL. But i'm not gonna stress (yet) and just hopefully it will all flow nicely. :o) that's the plan anyway lol...

I think you're right, the time will just fly by & before we know it we'll be looking at the photos.   I don't know why I'm flapping about wearing the wedding dress to go to bars etc, I think i keep forgetting there will be sooo many weddings taking place.  It might be that I'm not 100% convinced about my dress.  Have decided to have a look to see if there are others out there that I will feel 100% great in.

 

Michelle, that sounds so lovely to have your son give you away.  Like you, we dont have a wedding day plan, only the ceremony time.  I've emailed our WC but still waiting for her to reply. 

 

Will keep you updated as to the dress & whether I find something else.

Aaah Michelle your Harrison sounds so sweet....I think it is lovely he is giving you away, how proud are you going to be walking down the aisle with him!!!! :)

 

Glad to hear your dress fitting went well mine did too & I still am so in love with my dress, needs taking in everywhere as well so was chuffed that the workout dvds must be working!!....my shoes were bloody killing me too after standing there for an hour!! (but again no pain no gain!!) just wanted to ask you Michelle at the alterations place they gave me my next fitting 2nd April which is 9 weeks before we go & they said after this fitting I wouldn't be able to lose anymore weight.....I did query it in the shop as in the last 9 weeks I will hope to lose a few pounds but they said they get really busy in May?  Just wondered when your next fitting is?....my shoes were bloody killing me too....but again no pain no gain (I'll probably be in my flip flops by 7pm!!....lol) & same as you didn't take any photos as just didn't want to risk anyone seeing....

 

Welcome all newbies if haven't welcomed you before :)

 

On the DJ thing we have hired a DJ to come in to our resort from Cancun.....DJ Bijan......he has been really great to work with, we have emailed him a list of songs we definitely want played & then he will play a mixture.

Oh so glad it went well for you. My dress is a 10 and a little big on the bust but because of the detailing i'm not having it taken in. It fits perfect on my waist and hips so i'm please with that. The alterations i'm having is the train cut off. Almost all of it infact. They gasped when i said 'cut it off' but once it was pinned they all were amazed how much nicer it looked. See bride knows best. ha ha...

 

My next fitting is 4th April then i'm booked in to collect it on 21st May. To be fair i'm not planning on loosing much more ontop just concentrate on my butt and thunder thighs. Lots of lunges for me. I do hope i lose at least another half a stone before we go in 3months but dont think the dress will need altering anymore. We didn't really discuss it to be honest. She said to me if it needs more adjusting we'll see on 4th April.

 

I'd rather it be a little loose than tight. Especially after a week of AI eating and drinking before the wedding ha ha.

 

Dont worry to much. If they have to alter it they will HAVE to fit you in! A girl called Michelle did my alterations. Really lovely girl :o)
