Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year, I was ill for most of xmas but made up for it the day before NY eve, got absolutely battered at my cousins house rolled in at 7.30am and i'm only starting to feel 'normal' today...lol.
Can't believe it's 2011 and all of you (except me) are going to become Mrs this year, it has come around soooo fast.
Jo hope you have a wonderful wedding and it is everything you dreamed it would be can't wait to read your review.
To change the subject, i've got some news of my own....we've decided to get married in England instead of Mexico. I thought Mexico was everything that I wanted, but as the time of booking came near and reality started to dawn on me that my nearest and dearest couldn't make it due to finances I started to realise exactly what it was I wanted. That is my family, I can't get married without my sister, nieces, nephews, my cousins who are like my sisters, we've shared every major event in our lives and it just wouldn't be the same without them there.
I had been quite emotional and not myself for sometime now and on NY day Wayne sat me down and asked me what was wrong and it all just blurted out....I need my sister and cousins to be at my wedding, I felt awful like I was letting him down but he is so good bless him and he just said whatever will make me happy is what we'll do. Now I feel as though it all makes sense and I can close my eyes and see my wedding coming together...my sister is over the moon as are my cousins, my little nieces 7 & 4 years old keep telling everybody that they are going to be bridesmaids at aunty's wedding, it just seems like a happy occasion now with everybody involved instead of just me and Wayne planning it.
I was worried about finances but my mum has said she'll buy my dress no matter how much it costs, my 8 bridesmaids are all buying their dresses and shoes and acessories, the groomsmen and ushers will pay for their own suits to hire. My dad is contributing to the catering costs. i've already got a fair bit saved up as we were going to book mexico in February so it just seems to be coming together.
Everybody just seems so happy that we are getting married over here now that they are all chipping in.
So ladies thats that...it seems weird that i started this thread and now i'm not going to be seeing it through to the end, but i'll still pop in and see how you are all getting on and if you don't mind i'll even share my UK wedding planning with you.
