Samcalv1 I love the dress, it's stunning! I also haven't gone for a typical beachy dress mine is more princess type. If it's the one what does it matter.cheesy.gif

 

Lyndsey can't wait to see your photos of your invites and welcome booklet. Did you do your welcome booklet on vista?

 

I went to Hobbycraft yesterday to look at stuff for invites for our AHR and was totally blown away by the amount of things they do. Who is it that was doing a butterfly theme as they had beautiful butterflies that you can stick on you invites.

Thanks so much for looking for me Herbie......the trouble I am having is I have a 2 year old, 3 year old & 10 year old.  What I may do is get the 10 year old from Marks & Spencers & look elsewhere for the little ones :)

 

Samcalv I LOVE your dress!!!! & great taste its similar to mine :), I have had the shoulder strap on mine altered so I can have it on or off, so am going to have it off to walk down the aisle with my hair down & then put the strap on & pull my hair up for the evening.

Hi girls,

 

Hope you are all well?  I have been off work/computer for the last 2 days as I havent been well.  I havent been sleeping - anxiety etc  Especially with everything that has been happening in Christchurch.

 

My invites are being printed as we speak!  Im very excited but they are super expensive!  Im not really sure how that happened!  Anyway, they're being printed now so hey ho.  Just cant wait to send them out.  We have included a question on the RSVP about a favourite song to get you on the dance floor so I cant wait to see the responses.

 

Sounds like everyones wedding dress fittings went really really well!  So happy for you girls.

 

Nicyx - it must be so exciting for you now!  It feels like yesterday not October last year when I first came on here and you were making barefoot sandals and there was that other lovely lady who got married in Cyprus with her kids and his kids???  I cant remember her name but she was a sweet little thing.  Anyway - you only have 9 weeks to go before you fly out.  So so so exciting!

 

Charmaine - great news on the church!  Sounds like everything is coming together nicely and so early too - you will be well prepared.  I feel so sorry for you having the MIL over for 2 whole weeks!

 

Samcalv1 - your dress is BEAUTIFUL!  I just love it.  I am sure you will look amazing in it!

 

 

I'm not much if a tiara/veil kind of girl so I have some beautiful art deco/1930's vintage drop earrings.   My hair is long, dark and pain-in-the-arse curly.  Do you think it would be too much to add a flower in there?  I have to wear my hair up because of the back on my dress so I thought I might try a flower.  Have you seen any nice ones around?

 

 

Thanks

The invites we had to post had to be large letter stamp as to bulky for a normal 1st class stamp so yeh it was dear. Thank god we could hand deliver alot of ours too ;o)

 

Lyndsey to post a pic is easy. At the top of the message box you type in should be a tool bar similar to that on a word doc. There is an box with a pic in it that when your hover your mouse over should say insert image. Click on that and then just browse to were you have saved your pictures and double click on then. Then submit and away you go.... look forward to seeing them :o)

 

Im going from Bates to Creely so length not a huge issue but wierd all the same, still havent tried though.... i know what i'll be doing in a few mins... LOL x

I have had a busy couple of days Calvin's 40th Birthday on Friday and he is going with his friends to Rome to watch Wales v Italy so I decided we would have a family meal on Tues and he could have his prezzies and cards then.... I got him tickets to see Phantom of the Opera in London (his friend John plays the Phantom so he has got me a good deal on tickets!!) Calv has always wanted to see John in Phantom so when he saw the tickets he had a tear in his eye bless him.....:-) I've booked us into a lovely hotel and then we are going to have food in the Ivy (again curtesy of John) I cannot wait!!!!! and it's Calv's birthday hee hee.

 

I've also picked my dress and I LOVE IT!!!!! So glad I waited for the right one..... and listened to the bridal shop owner.... I went to one bridal shop and she was really pressurising me to put a deposit on a dress (thank god I didn't) went to another bridal shop who told me to wait as they were having new designs in and that I had enough time to choose a dress......xxxx So the first one I tried on from the new design I knew was the one. xxxxx  Here is a pic

1287150647-2223_20Front.jpgI am sooooo excited now xxxxx

 

What a nice 40th he will have and what a lovely thing to do with the phantom tickets, no wonder he was made up... i would love to see that too, im not really into musicals to be honest but that i would love to see....

 

That dress id just lush..... Its just lovely, the skirt is unusual i love it x

The news is deverstating at the moment... I feel for you Mel, being your home country an all.... I hope all your friends and family are ok and I am thinking of all the deverstated familys out there x {{{Hugs}}} x

 

Hope you flash your invites :-) Great idea about the song in the RSVP... with id have read that a day ago... lol, i would have stole the idea x

 

I know, how crazy is it, making them Barefoot sandals seems like a million life times ago... but like only yesterday at the same time.... wierd.... I never thought it would come round this quick... im so happy for us all xx

 

I was never a tiara and veil gal, and never even entertained the idea of a veil until i tried one on when i went to order my dress, now im definatly a veil girl... still not gone for the tiara as i never suited any, so i have gone for a comb....

I did want a flower originally, i dont know if you remember me posting this...

I love it

Im still thinking of this only slightly higher as im wearing my veil underneath and instead of a flower my comb.... my hair is natrualy curly/wavey/frizzy so being up will be better for me and as i have a few curls anyway this might just work.

 

I think the vintage earings and the flower will be fine... not too much at all :-)

Do they know you have earrings for them? Have you had a chat to your sister about it (if she knows)? I personally like the idea about sat when having the hair done as would be nice to see then with the hair styles..... Then maybe go for a nice lunch with your sister and give them to her then ASAP after your other BM's have theirs??? x

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • 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.
