well thankfully Michelle she is not staying with us she has a flat to stay in when she comes over to England (not that I would ever allow her to stay with us and I think FI would know there'd be a murder committed), but even her being here is going to drive me mad, she has Wayne running around after her like a headless chicken....'oh sweetie can you just drop me down the road' (well NO because you live 1 hour drive from us, so it's not just down the road is it).....grrrrrr she gets me so angry.

 

Can you believe that we have been together 9 years in May and our mothers have NEVER met.  His mum looks down on everybody, god knows why though because it's not like she's a millionnaire she only owned her own hairdressing business and her own house.   I said if they meet and she makes my mum feel bad in anyway shape or form for being 'working class' and not owning her own house etc etc then I will go for her, becasue my mum is so lovely and wouldn't even say anything.  Wayne thinks its a good idea for us to have them meet when she is over this time as we have been putting it off for ages but i'm not so sure, i suppose it has to happen eventually though!!!

Oh well thats a bonus that shes not staying with you. My MIL lives 5mins away but since we fell out she doesn't bother me so much and just 'pop by' so i suppose i shouldn't complain, lol. I see her at a minimum now. phhheewww!! I'm really hoping i dont have one to many on my hen night and tell her a few home truths...eeekkkk lol...

 

WOW i can't believe they've never met. You got away with that for a long time lol. My mum is also lovely and doesn't really like MIL to much (mostly cos of the problems she causes me) but they are totally different kinds of ppl. My dad has only met my inlaws a handful of times and me and Dan have been together for 9yrs this yr. My dad keeps himself to himself doesn't really go to social events but he has made a comment to my mum that MIL makes him feel like a down and out.. so just proves its not me. The woman thinks she's god and is so patrinising with it!!

 

Fingers x'd Charmaine she wont bother you to much in the 2wks she's over... if she does bring the wedding up just say as little as possible that way what she dont know wont hurt her. If she comes round just make yourself as busy as possible to avoid her getting to you :o)

Michelle thank you so much for such a kind words earlier, i don't know what would i do without you girls...:))) Venting sometimes helps for sure especially when you talk to people that can relate to what you are going through! :))

 

Charmaine - congratulations on confirming your church!!! i am sure it is gorgeous :)) We want to do church blessing as well when we come back from Dominican, so will have to look into it soo! (another thing added on to do list! :))

I am soooo sorry that you will have to have your MIL around for whole two weeks!!!..:/ Just stay strong and like Michelle said, try to take deep breathes and keep yourself busy...that's what i do when my MIL is coming over (which is very rarely thank god!! :D)... i try to pretend that i am off making tea's and coffee's and helps even more i noticed if you put something in the oven every time she is over lol....so you have an excuse to leave the room as many times i as you want..."to check on things" ;) and stay in the kitchen until you relax before coming back again :D... maybe this will help you as well :D

 

Girls, do you know, we have been together with Oliver almost 5years and our parents haven't met either!!!! lol :D I met my MIL only over a year ago...before I found it odd when my FI would say that we should delay meeting his mum for as long as possible, he actually told me "honey, you should enjoy your peace while you can, cos after you meet her there will be no way back..."...but only now I understand exactly what he meant LOL :D

My mum is a very open and sincere person, and my MIL is complete opposite too , just like your parents Michelle and your MIL!!! - i swear when they meet and my MIL will say anything inappropriate to my mum or any member of my family..I wont be able to control myself! ...

I've also booked my photographer and videographer and i've got a meeting with a highly recommended DJ on Saturday.

 

Bit of a dilema, we wanted the walls of the Golf Club covered in white drapes and a fairy light wall behind the head table, we've been getting some quotes and it is sooooo expensive anywhere from £1500 - £2000...the girls are saying that we can get some fabric and do it ourselves but i don't want it to look tacky, so not sure what we're going to do at the moment as it will eat into alot of our decorations budget, but on the other hand we're not spending alot on the centre pieces as one of my bridesmaids will make them and we're only going to have diamantes scattered on the tables.  I have already got my chair sash bows and table runners, so maybe it's doable but it's soooo much money to spend on covereing the walls but it really does transform the place....hmmmm what to do???

 

 


Charmaine....ouch £1500 - £2000 is a lot of money!!!...i can understand how you feel...:/

I am not the best person to take DIY advice from, but maybe you could try and get a peace of fabric (not big) that you think will suite your decoration and try it out on your own wall at home first??...See how it looks and if you will see that it looks great, at least you will have an option of decorating it yourself...?

 

xoxo

Girls, thought I will share it with you :))...we have decided to change our invitations(half way through creation process lol :D), cos my FI found the ones that he loved and I like them better too :)) and they have RSVP cards included too, which is always handy :D

So here are the pictures, we are planing to add some aqua colour somewhere on the boarding pass and maybe add an aqua ribbon instead of champagne...but will see, will need to consult with lovely lady on Etsy :))

Tell me what you all think!!! :)

We have been together 10 years in July and it was about 6 years before our parents met.... not for any other reason other than distance... 1st time they met was at FSIL wedding... they have met a couple of times since, like when i moved to Annan as my mum n dad helped me move and over the last few xmas' as again my parents came up here :-)

 

 

I hope the "visit" goes ok.... and time passes by quickly for you.... will defo be thinking of you xxx

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
