      Thank you so much Lea :))x I am keeping my invites quite simple, just putting date and time of our wedding and destination and resort name and saying that: we cant wait to see everyone there! :D I didn't want to over crowd invite with loads of info, so decided to do welcome bags for all of our guests and include all info about resort and area, things to do while they there(trips etc.) and also the "plan of the big day" lol :D , so everyone will know what is happening where :)) together with little bis and peaces like little medical kit and deck of cards etc. (still in process of putting it all together :D)  

       

      Our big day is long way away still lol, but we were always thinking that we will have one of the Keith Urban songs for our first dance...not sure about the rest, this is the only thing that my fiance is in charge of lol :D :D ...and i have a feeling that it will be done sometime a week before we leave to Dominican Republic LOL :D :D

       

       

      xoxo

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)

          2 weeks... OMG, that is so so exciting :) x

           

          Yeah, i kkep calling Stephen a diva at the mo... definatly worse than us women!!! LOL.

           

          And i agree with the others... addressing them from the children is a lovely idea x

          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



          michelle i got 3 rsvp's..... 3

           

          we have to do our ahr invites soon, the party is may 14th and we already have people booked to fly out here (i feel really tight cos i reckon no-one would have bothered if they knew we were coming back to the uk to live!)


          3.... No-way!!! Haha, thats terrible x

              Lea, I know how you feel about the music,...i am trying not to think about it at all lol and leave it all in hands of my wonderful H2B lol :D I am sure it will work our at the end just well :))

               

              The key card holders are little waterproof sleeves with bracelet attached to them so ppl can carry their room keys, credit cards and tip money. Loads of US brides are using them in their welcome bags for their guests...but i cant seem to find any at all online..:(( (here is a picture to give you an idea, there are many items there but key card holders are on the bottom right :))

                Here's what we're having

                 

                Walking up the aisle - Eva Cassidy - Songbird

                Signing of the register - Jack Johnson - Better together

                Walking back up the aisle - Jason Mraz - I'm Yours

                 

                I've put these 3 on a CD and also on Harrisons ipod touch as a back up :o)

                 

                We also did like 'at last' but decided for more up beat ones instead. We also need to put an hours worth of music together for our cocktail hour but i might get someone else to do that. Something less to worry about lol

                    Michelle your songs are brilliant I love everyone of them :D...unfortunately at our cocktail hour we wont have access to any music...so started to think maybe hiring one of the trio bands they offering for an hour ish to keep everyone in a festive mood :))) ..but need to look into my budget..

                     

                    You are also right I will ask one of the brides where she had her key holder done...i was hoping to find them in the UK though, found a couple online this afternoon but they are not the same and they charge about £7 for them!!! it definitely not worth 7£...so will see maybe it will be possible to get them from US :))

                     

                    Oh and let us know when your awesome shoes you ordered coming, really hope that they are just what you were hoping for...thinking PINK for you :D

                    Btw talking about shoes, just saw online that kurt geiger is having 75% off there are some very nice ones,- thought will let you know gals if you are still in search of those perfect shoes ;)))

                      Thank you. It did take us a while to decide but happy with our choices. We were thinking of having the band too. Its $400 for 45mins at our hotel so we'll just have to see how the budget goes. we can book that while we are there so not worrying to much about it.

                       

                      My shoes say they have been shipped so just waiting for them now :o( hurry up delivery man, ha ha..
