    Lucky enough my dress came in a box which fulfils their requirement and it doesnt crease - this is my hand luggage - now FI had to look after passports and tickets etc that I usually have to look after!!!

    Also we booked our holiday through First Choice so are flying with Thomsons - does anyone know how they are going to transport their dress?  I want to take it with me as hand luggage but I don't want to fold it up into a box!!!

     

    Any help will be great - I feel so behind and I need to get my arse into gear!!

     

    Thanks


     


    Im the same.. FI will be the one carrying the passports etc, when its usually me... I will be so nervous!!!! x  OMG 4 days to go!!!!!! :-)

    Roo:  I'm so sorry to hear that your feeling down, you might also have a touch of the xmas blues, i always get down this time of year, hope you start to feel better soon xx

     

    Jo:  i can't believe that you leave on FRIDAY, you must be sooooo excited x
     


    Lyndsey:  your ring is gorgeous i love it xx
     

     

    Well ladies just to update you on my wedding progress.  Now we're staying here i'm able to look at different style wedding dresses so I went out with 2 of my bridesmaids on Saturday to the shop where I saw a dress that I tried on previously and loved (Michelle by Maggie Sottero), i wanted to see if i still loved it and i do but then I found another one completely different style that i also love

    This is a picture of the flower girl dresses £25 of ebay including delivery, which i think is a bargain

     

     

       

    WOW only been away for a couple of days & there is so much to catch up on.....love it!!!!

     

    Roo - Sorry to hear you have been down....I know I will have the wedding blues for sure, I have already been saying to my friends I don't want the day to be over & we are still 4 months away.  I have just enjoyed planning & getting all excited so much I don't want it to end!!

     

    Char - So happy that your plans are coming together & how lovely is that of your friend to let you have the venue for free.  Can I ask what ebay shop you got your flower girl dresses from?   They are lovely!!

     

    Nicy - Edinburgh woop woop!!!! I need to still think about what I am going to do.  God I wrote another list last night, I swear everytime I do it it just gets longer everytime!!

     

    Michelle I am with you on the boob job, I am just pathetic!!  Maybe we could do a buy one get one free what dya think?  lol ....I did my workout dvd 3 times last week & couldn't walk down the stairs the next day, legs were bloody killing me.....but hey no pain no gain!!!! :)

     

    Well I have ordered our cake topper today, if any of you want something a little bit different there is an ebay shop called laceyling that do some fantastic ones.  Richard loves Superman so we are having Superman carrying Lois Lane it is really cute & just something a bit different than the usual.  They do so many different ones!!  There is even Shrek & Fiona which I am considering if I don't shift some weight!!  lol

     

     

    Hey lovely... always so much going on, on here :-) Love the idea of your cake topper, gana go look at the site now :-) And yes i kno what you mean with the list.... dito... should be getting smaller, but no such luck!!!!! x

              Hi Everyone,

               

              I've not really done anything about my wedding for a few months but now really back into it. Took me ages to catch up with these threads,. Anyway i wanted to ask you all what have you bought your bridesmaids? i'm really stuck. I'm so annoyed, i originally bought her a Pandora charm bracelet with a suitcase charm on, but then her boyfriend for xmas has bought her a different charm bracelet so now i'm looking for other ideas. I've seen some quite nice Vera Wang toasting flutes but don't know ifi love them. What'e everyone else got? x

                Well ladies the time has arrived for me to depart these shores and head Mexico way to be made an honest woman.  Who would have thought this time would ever arrive!

                 

                Thank you all for listening to my moans, being supportive and giving me some great ideas - its been great fun and I feel like I have really got to know some of you - its been like planning a wedding with friends - you really have been part of the process.

                 

                After weighing my suitcase with FIs fishing scales 100 times I think we are bang on the weight limit!!  Dress is packed, hair and eyebrows done, manicure and pedicure tomorrow before I head to the hotel ready for departure at 9.15 from Gatwick.

                 

                If I had one word of advice to give you before you leave - 'dont do what I did and leave all your planning to the last min' - I booked 12 months ago and planned everything in the last 3 weeks - am officially knackered and off to hit the sack!

                 

                Speak soon xx

                 

                PS - I wonder how many wedding nightmares/dreams I will have tonight - signing off for the last time as a 'missy moo'!


                Josie x
