      Cant wait to plan my hen :-) Havent got a clue what to do though yet... Was talking to my sis at weekend and she mentioned butlins.. dont know how cost effective it would be for me though as i auto route it and its 242 miles away from me :-( dont fancy doing the blackpool thing.. i just dont know... im need ideas.
      MY friend is having hers in Manchester having a Cocktail making class then a few drinks afterwards.

      Im really stuck for what to do to be honest??!!


      m a at evening reception this weekend for one of FI's cousins... looking forward to it only i have NOTHING to wear, i have had it in my head for weeks that it was the weekend after next and i had an email from FSIL today asking what tme we are going on sat... i was like "What?" poo... checked the invite and it is this sat.. that mean i have 3 days to find something on my lunch hour, and i cant even get sat really as im working sat morn.... Dilema!!! haha.. any excuse for another dress!!! but i do have another wedding in July (no-one at this one will be at July one) so i can wear whatever outfit i get at both... LOL xox

        Nicy as i've said on fb i am so chuffed for you! So exciting you can now feel more settled and happy about your wedding planning. A total weight off you know FI's job is safe! Lovely news...

        My sister got me the job. I used to work for Land Charges and then i had Scarlett and my sister (director in a catering firm) got me some work to do at home and it just went from there really after my maternity leave. Now i do 30hours a week. Boring but as Josie says it pays the bills and i get to be at home and work the hours i want to work....

        I do love my dress! I can't wait for Jan when i go for my fitting! Whoop!

        My mum bought her MOB dress on friday when she was in London with my sister. It's LK Bennett but she changed her mind and it went back yesterday. I didn't like it much, very boring and plain.... I think she will be worse than me when it comes to chosing a dress ha ha....

        Nicy - can you meet somewhere in the middle for your hen? I suppose it depends on what sort of hen you want.... I am looking forward to mine next April....

        I'm off to Butlins next weekend for a girlie weekend. Should be an experience! I'm looking forward to some time with my girls!

          So so made up with your FB status... made me smile loads n loads :-) your so lovely... thanks for listening to me over the last few weeks youve been a star :-)

          Oooo, your fitting in Jan, its scary bt it'll be here b4 we know it!!
          Mums are terrible and definatly the worst when it comes to outfitshopping.. haha... my mum will be the same if she is anything like what she was like for my sisters wedding!!! x

          Probably will meet somewhere inbetween i should imagine, but would love to do a butlins weekend... you'll have to let us know how you get on next weekend...

          Wish i had a job like yours would suit me to the ground... ive been looking for a new job for months and months but there is just nothing around at the mo...

            Welcome to Your Bridal Wear!

            Its a Maggie Sottero and is â¬138. I figured its worth the risk to be fair.. if i dont like i will sell it and even if i only get alf the money back at least i tried!!!

            Where have you sen that for 4.99?

            I have just had a look on yourbridalwear & it is nearly all the same dresses!! Go on Ebay & just put in wedding dresses, tons come up!! I am going to order one & see what the quality is, I was thinking even if I use it for my TTD so I don't ruin my actual dress!!

                    Hey
                    Just wondering if any of you lovely ladies could help me, for our AHR we have decided to do a candy buffet for the children (and adults!)however i'm not sure where to start we could hire someone to do it for us but it would be very expensive so wanted to DIY but not sure where i can get the sweet dispensers from, any ideas would be fantastic :-)
