      sam-i live in north wales, so im off shopping this weekend to manchester, its only an hour away............i often go to south wales, once a month ish for work meetings.........

       

      nicy- well,long story short............i found my dress 'the one', ordered it oct last year, mum paid in full............then in jan i went to shop to see what dates i would need to go in for fittings(currently on diet, lost 3lbs today at slimming world!)...........shop closed down...........hunted down number of lady from the shop.............arranged to meet her in my local tesco car park to pick up my dress as she was no longer in business...........met her, got my dress, took it to my mum's house so FI didnt see it....opened bag,dress stained and stank like coal fire............had to give dress back, as she refused to pay 'normal dry cleaner's' for me to get it cleaned...............waited 3 weeks............finally met her today, got my dress back, it all clean and perfect, thank god i still love it!"!! told my friends, they think i shoud have refund but i really really really love it and its defo 'the one' so im just glad i have it now and lady is coming to fit it a month before depending on how the diet goes.................all i can say is thank god im not too precious as some brides as i would/could have totally freeked out!!

       

      michelle- have seen some pics one of them took from  when we were at the grand prix in dubai last year and they were amazing so im going to go with it and use the case on the boat trip and put my trust in friends.........

       

      Not sure who made the personalised vest tops, but they are lovely., how thoughtful, may have to make some of my own.............i love making stuff too, just need to find the time..............

       

      hope your all having a good week, should we start our own wedding day count down??

       

      lets get dates and put it all together so we can spurt each other on!!x

        Well girlies the excitement is mounting...........

        Firstly i gotta say youve been busy each and every one of you.Janapana your coming home glad it all come together quickly for you.

        Theres deffo some witchy mothers in the pack right now.Did you make the top to small for the MIL from hell Michelle id of been very tempted lol

        Sorry about the job Nicky but hey ho the time may not be right just yet.At least you dont have the pressure of a new job and the stress that goes with that and maybe you might get a small buzz that your shitty job is payng you 2k more (does that make sense)

        Michelle i lovvvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeee your airport tops but for the untalented diyers i  got all of our airport T-shirts from good ol vista.I ordered 16 in total even Chloe whos 7 today/yesterday!!! wore the smallest and i  belted it with a hot pink belt and she wore it a a dress.I had printed im off to Paul and Marias Greek wedding with a bride and groom in our colours and on the back i put everyones name.They were a huge hit and we all looked so good together everyone wore one from age 7 to 74.I ordered them as and when the postage was free etc. Idid do the bride to be and flower girl bridesmaids ones however chloes didnt stand up too well but it served its purpose i guess..We didnt do OTT bag we did the t shirts paid for the transport to the airport for everyone, did pashminas for the girls raffia fans and jelly bean cones.No one expected anything so was thrilled with what they got.Infact Katie Ryans girlfriend was wearing her pashmina on Monday evening.

        I cant believe how the time has flown by and for most of you its weeks now not months

        Im undecieded about what to do with my dress at the mo there is a dress agency in our town that i called into today and she said shes doing a wedding fair this weekend and would sell it fo £400 and give me £200.Now id be happy to get tghe two for it but am not sure id want to give her £200 for putting it in the boot of her car then hanging it on a rail.Am i being daft i could use the £200 to put in a fund pot to buy a ring to sit aalongside my wedding band.

        Are any of you doing the paper lanterns i soooo wish id done them or the ones that float on the water.Hwkin bazaar had the lantern bags today i noticed id of got them aswell lol

        I so wish i was still planning : (

        Hey hooo ill carry on with the bathroom makeover just completed sams bedroom once the bathrooms done th living room is nxt.

        For most of you girls it will be getting a dog or making babies lol my days are over .....................

        Happy planning keep the piccies coming ..............................

        AND FOR ALL THE GIRLS WITH MIL FROM HELL KILL UM WITH KINDNESS WHEN SOMEONES WATCHING AND GIVE THEM THE TWO FINGER SALUTE WHEN THERE NOT XXXXX

        My first MIL was from hell and still today 20 years after my divorce i wouldnt pee on her if she was on fire.If she stepped/fell of the kerb as i was driving past im not even sure id swerve to miss her the old fire breathing dragon. hahahaa

        sleep well xxx

          Oh that's good at least you know they take lovely pix! What a result for you :o) we have a friend taking pix at our AHR for us so saving some money there for us :o)

           

          My dad started making our wedding cake!!! AARRGGHH makes it that little bit more real.... (my dad makes the cakes and my sister decorates) also saving us some pennies ;o)

           

          Roo - OMG i didn't even think of vista for the tshirts. Great idea!! I'm glad they were a hit. I'm hoping mine are too. I know if it were me and i was going on holiday for a friends wedding i would love it. Bringing everyone together... lol lol lol....well i did get MIL from HELL a size 16 but they do come up on the small side so chances are it might be tight and being white not to flattering...OOOPPPsss what a shame!! hee hee....what can she say though??? NISH!!! If she dont wear it, it will only make her look out of order!

           

          My friend coming has apparently made us all black hen night vests for the hen in mexico and i know they are small and MIL is not one to show her arms or wear a vest... can't wait to see her face!!! OOOOOO meow! Oh i dont care. The old witch deserves it!

            I think you'd be better selling it yourself hun!! £200 for just selling it. Its your dress you should get the majority of the money for it!
