    michelle your ahr invites look beautiful, really pretty. your and nicy's fi are just like antony, he wouldn´t let me take a picture of him in his wedding suit in case i showed everyone..... foolish boy, like anyone REALLY cares about the groom that much, it´s all about the bride!

       Hello Lea Welcome to the forum!!!! :)))

       

      You are only 8 months away from your big day!!! :D ...we are 13 months exactly today yay :)))

      Your dress looks lovely btw very elegant!!! :)

       

      Michelle, your invites are fantastic...have you done them yourself???!!! If yes then tell us how lol :D and if no where did you order such a beauty??!! :))

      We haven't even thought of AHR just yet, but i guess we should start doing it sooner then later, because there might be quite a few ppl there :D Also we would like to have a church blessing at the same day before the actual reception - does anyone else doing church blessing in the UK when they are back from DW?!

      As i mentioned before, we decided to order DW invites and AHR invites do ourselves - so i see trip to Hobby Crafts in the very near future :D Btw ladies, can you advise any other good DIY shop or online, or HobbyCrafts is the best?!!! (not very crafty person so I am a bit lost at this..:/)

       

      Lea , have you decided already what are you doing with your invites maybe?! :)

       

      Nicy, your nails look stunning!!! wau!!! :D i am not quite sure what to do with mine...I was thinking to do acrylic nails day before we leave, but not sure how they withstand salty water (cos we have about 5-6 days at the resort before our big day :))? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!! :))

      Oh and Nicy good look with your diet, really hope that it will work out for you!!! :)x I get same thing sometimes, when I am exercising every other day for a month or so and see no result at all...:(( But for me it works quite well when I combine my usual exercises routine with some intensive yoga (i find a lot of the on you tube!:)), cos it tones your muscles very well you see visual results much quicker...maybe it will work for some of you girls too :))

       

      xoxo

            Thanx girlies, yes i did them. I designed them and did the wording etc. Then ordered the pocketfolds online and envelopes etc. FI took my template into work and got the print and foil done then it was a matter of sticking everything together etc. Doesn't look like much work but it was and i'm so pleased with the result. Its so nice ppl also like them. :o) Now how many ppl will RSVP!!! I'm guessing only a few. ppl never RSVP do they?? lol.

             

            We wanted them to be personal to us so that's why i decided to address them from our children......

             

             

            Good luck with the diet Nic. I love Stephens outfit. Its nice he's chaning in the evening. I think he looks great. I love the colour of the tie :o) Dan decided last night he wants to look different than the other groomsmen for our AHR so he's ordered the waistcoat to the suit just for that. Men ah?? They are worse than us women!! All i said was ' ummm wish a waistcoat was all i had to worry about' dont get me wrong i love him to bits but he's been no help at all with the planning process, typical man ah?........

             

            2 weeks today till my dress fitting........whhhhhooooooopppppp!! I better not eat for 2wk's to make sure i get in it ha ha ;o)

              Leanne - We haven't decided yet on what Calvin (my FI) is gonna wear.. I think I need to get my backside into gear LOL.... But we are quite a laid back couple... :-)

               

              Michelle - Love your AHR invites (so pretty) especially as they are from your children it is a wonderful way of keeping them involved, (think I might steal this idea!!! if you don't mind). Good luck with your dress fitting....... x

               

              I haven't even decided on a colour for my daughter's bridesmaid dress yet...  xx

                Hi Lea :)

                 

                The same thing happened to me with the dress!!! :D I went to see whats out there on the wedding dress market with my mum and friend after new years. I didn't think even for a second that I will find "the one" the very same day!!! :D Here is a picture of it (not sure how big is going to be on here, hope you can see it :)) It is by Pronvias style called Alcanar

                About the invites...i am the least creative person ever LOL :D...was trying to DIY my destination wedding invites and just gave up, so will be ordering some from Etsy, we decided on boarding pass style - very simple but very cute :D

                Michelle you are awesome!!! Creating all of these AHR invites all by yourself!!!! :)) I just wish i could borrow some of your creativity while i am planing my big day lol :D And I completely agree that men are useless when it comes to the wedding planning lol :))...but at the same time it is very sweet that they understand how important it is for us women to make it just the way we want it and they stay out of our way lol :D that's love for you ladies! :)))

                 

                Btw girls, does anyone of you making a Key Card/Tip holders for your guests??! I have seen that US brides do them alot, ..but not sure where to get those plastic sleeves from :/...any ideas ladies??!!

                      yeah i know, but everyone knows when the party is, we told them all last year, so it´s just a formality really, and due to the level of shite-ness about people rsvp-ing, i´m a bit reluctant to send out invites again. I think ´they´ll be a vistaprint special.

                      in fact i might make that today's job. right after i finish writing my thankyou notes.
