Cheers Nicy. Well so far we've only got me and my fiance booked aswel as my Mum and Dad. I've got the prices for the other guests so they're just getting their deposits together now so should be booked in a couple of weeks.

Other than that thats as far as I've got really! I want to get cracking with things but I feel like I'd be doing everything too early, but I suppose it's best to be prepared.

What about yourself, how far have you got with planning etc.?x

We have just had our date confirmed by TC as the date we requested 6th May at 1pm (although we did request 4pm) Im so excited.
My mum and Dad are booked along with FSIL, Hubby and baby. I think thats all thats going to be coming... wish everyone was coming but cost was a mojor factor for most. I have chosen my dress but not bought it yet, will look at getting it at end of year. Stephen is still deciding what to wear, I have always wanted him to wear a kilt (hes scottish) and a few weeks ago he finally agreed (He hates his legs, but i think secretly he always wanted to) but the only thing detering him now is the weight of it.... but im almost positive he will go with it :-)
I have bought a few bits and bobs and made a few bits 2.
I just want to go all out and get everything now but i know i need to be sensible about it all :-)

Im just waiting for my wedding pack to come through now then when i have that i think it will spur me on slighlty. My next mission is to get in touch with WC at the resort so i can find out cost of hair, photog, and confim times etc, i think being intouch with her will make it seem more real :-) x

Michelle love the headband.

 

I have gone with a tiara and no veil - I just couldnt get on with a veil and I know as it will be windy right down on the shoreline it would annoy me. But I love veils on other people.

 

I got my tiara at the national wedding fair its was half price (£45) as it was the last one and discontinued - not that it matter to me. I will try and take a picture of it next time I'm at my mums as her spare room is slowly turning into my wedding room!!!

WELL DONE!!!!!!!!! that's just fabulous! so glad!

Woodsylou....Wow you must be soooo excited with only a few days to go, are you all set and ready?

I have been looking at dresses for the past few weeks now purely because everything is quite expensive i want to have plenty of time to pay for everything so trying to get a head start, so after looking and trying LOADS of different styles on i finally found THE DRESS and have put my deposit down yay was sooo exciting, here it is (the pics are of someone who had the same dress and are selling it on ebay!)

Im actually thinking of ordering my dress online at
Discount Unusual wedding dresses-money save wedding, Unique bridal gown,evening dresses from superbweddingdress.com

Im a tiny bit worried after reading the horror stories but i figure €135 is a small gamble if i get it and its all good... Ive read a few good reviews so i think i will go for it and save myself like £800!!!! :-)

xox
that's so beautiful! i agree about risking it. if it's awful you are only losing about £100. go for it!

My friend went to a wedding on Sat and when i looked at the photos she had a lovely hair band in. Exactly what i'm looking for so i'm gonna ask her were she got it from. I'll post pix once she tells me so you can all see what you think..

I am a bundle of nerves today, i am litterally living on kalms! three days more of work and that's it! YAY!

i had my school friends and my Moh round yesterday for a cream tea (finger sandwiches, cake, champagne, tea etc) and i put my dress on for them to see and my shoes and jewellery and my MOH and my mum both put thier outfits on too! it was all so nice! feels sooooooooo real!!

A voucher is a great idea but its so hard to get us all together at the best of times, I havent seen my parents for about 4/5 months due to work, cost etc on both sides (which is a sore subject) so im not sure that would work, but thanks for the idea, its definatly something to play with :-)

 

Glad you like the dress!!! Definatly worth the risk x

 

WOW the count down is really really on now... I just cant imagine how you are feeling at the moment!!!

 

Yesterday sounds like a ball... what a lovely day for you, everyone together :-) xox

what about then a voucher for them to do something on their own together?

 

i feel very odd. shakey. it's not wedding panic, it's more holiday stress you know?! trying to ensure we have everything and we can get it all packed etc! i will feel so much better once we're out there!

WOW, In that case your so calm..... Just to have holiday stress.... If thats what its like I have nothing to worry about!!!! ;-p

It will probably feel more like your wedding when you get out there and the holiday stress has passed!!! How exciting :-)

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
