    Thats a nice idea to have your mum and dad give you away. I might do that actually cos its nice for them to both have a role. and they BOTH did make you after all lol

      I know cost is a massive factor in this but I cant help but think your only going to get married once and those pictures will be with you forever. So if you dont like the style now, will you not like your pics?

       

      Have you got a link to the pictures your photographer has taken? x

      Girls i felt like that when my dad decided he wasn't coming. Luckily i have a gorgeous son that has stepped in to give me away. Failing that i prob would of had my mum or walked on my own. Hope you work it out. x

        I seem to have hit a dead end lately.... Not really done anything weddingy for a while... feel a bit of a spare part lately :-(

         

        Im off for a fortnight after ths week so no doubt my wedding head will come back then, and i can start getting a few more things together and re-working my list etc :-)

         

        I would love to get an outside vendor for photog, if it was maybe just a matter of cost for that i would be ok, but just cant affort a nights stay for one!! Would work out way too expensive i think.... i have emailed our resort photog for samples but not heard back yet.....

         

        Great idea having both mum and dad.... You make me laugh Susan..... with your "and they BOTH did make you after all lol" comment!! Haha :-)

         

        Michelle... WOW... Love the length of ya list.... Fantastic...... :-)

         

        ARGH....... 7 Months, 3 weeks and 1 day for us, Cant believe were nearly in the 6 months...... It has flew since May when we booked it..... It scares me when i think about it as i havent even ordered my dress yet!!!! ARGHHHHH..... Roll on my weeks off work...... I need my wedding head back :-)

        Shit, i havent ordered my dress... reading that back i have just scared myself even more!!!

              On the photography front we are going with Octavio Montes http://www.octaviomontes.com/home.htm as our hotel allows in outside vendors - for what he charges his photos are very good - we also didnt want to have hundreds of photos sitting in a drawer for years to come. As we will only have a few on show and budget is a major factor for us despite it being our wedding day - I dont want to be paying for one day for the rest of my life - as harsh as that sounds.  He also ensures he has everything back to you within 3 days either at your hotel or meeting him at the airport x

                  Yes i feel the same but i do want nice pix. I will prob only have a few on display at home but i want those to be nice ones without paying a fortune. It seems some of the outside photographers charge a fortune. I think if we weren't having an AHR i would justify paying more but i dont want the price to get out of control. I might have to sacrifice the DVD and just have photos although it would be nice to have a DVD to watch in yr's to come..... I have been approached by a photographer. He works with his wife and their photos are gorgeous. They are looking to expand their destination wedding portfolio and are interested in shooting our wedding, for travel expenses x2 and a fee. In return for all the photos edited on CD ready to print! I think i will ask them to look into the travel cost etc and see how that goes. It's so stupid our hotel has rules and fees for outside vendors. Cheeky way of getting you to use their company!

                    Morning ladies! Finally managed to get Antony to buy a suit this week, It´s a really dark grey with a pinstripe in it. slimfitting with a waistcoat and a pale lilac shirt..... mmmm i have to say he did look rather gorgeous in it! I never see him suited and booted, he´s always in chef whites or scruffs, think i´ve seen him in a suit about 5 times in nearly 5 years so when i saw him put it on i thought, ding-dong! You´ll do!

                     

                    Wedding invitations done, my mum posting them for me when she goes back to uk on friday. All of them have the luggage tags and pens in with them, and two sets have travel mugs (they´re to be handed out directly to my mums family.... saving on postage (i´m  not tight... honest!)

                     

                    The rest of the travel mugs will be sent to Sheffield for me, then when i´m back in October i´ll hand them out then.

                     

                    OMG i have less than 4 months to go. Had a bit of a wobble of late, OH and I work completely opposite shifts so that someone is always home for the kids (mia´s school closes between 12.30 and 3,30 for lunch every day so you have to pick them up) so 7 days a week one of us is working, then i work 4 nights on top of that, needless to say it doesn´t help our relationship, especially with a mardy-arse 2 year old who may as well live on the naughty mat. And we have both been so tired with the long hours and the heat that all we do when we do see each other is snipe and fight- i was starting to think,,,,,, why am i marrying this man, we don´t even like each other! anyway so we´ve rejiggled our shifts so that someone else is looking after mia over lunch, and we get to spend a couple of days a week together, and it turns out i do actually still like him! bonus! I was seriously starting to wonder if it was too late to call the whole thing off. Most upsetting. It´s a shame that work and those pesky kids get in the way!!!!
