How are you all? I havent been on in so long - it has taken me 4 days of paid work time to catch up with what has been happening! I cant believe some of you girls are married already and how close some of you are to becoming Mrs'! Especially you Nicy - your big day is zoooming! Im so so excited for you! It was so funny - I was rading all the posts dating back from December (!!) and I got to the bit where you mentioned your Cabbage Soup diet and I had to wait a bout 6 pages to find out how you had got on! Well done you - 7 lbs is wicked.
An update on me:
Well I hadnt really done much up until Christmas and now I am in full planning mode.
The dress is paid for. I absolutely love it BUT I have been proper panicking for the last few weeks. Something in is really worried that it just isnt beachy enough. I feel so comfortable in it but once you start looking at accessories (Hair flowers, bouquets) and everyone elses (Floaty bridesmaid dresses) and I feel like maybe mine is a bit "English Church Wedding). Its so pretty and I love love love the back but Im nervous. I will be interested to hear your thoughts *waits with baited breath*
I even emailed the lady at the wedding shop telling her I was too worried it was too much and I would be too hot! She hasnt emailed me back yet ........
Chris' shirt has been ordered and recieved. We have the same shirt for him and the 3 attendants. He originally wanted to wear a fred perry polo top but I had to put my foot down a little. I mean, I know its both of our day and all but come on! I would have had to wear a tennis dress with it!
We dont know what to wear on the bottom half regarding trousers and footwear yet so we are just having a bit of a think about it and hoping we will spot something soon that gives us inspiration. All I know is he wants dark coloured trousers and not linen or beige. talk about against the grain my DH! LOL
I brought one of those dress boxes the other day! We are flying with BA and I just didnt want to take a risk so I brought one. I brought the large and they told me it would take 10 days but it arrived in 3! They arent cheap (Just under £50 by the time you pay for postage - an empty box in a box!!!!!) but they are acid free and so you can actually store your dress in it forever if you so wish.
I am in thr process of finalising the designs on the invites and ordered some beautiful fans as part of the favours. They arrived on Monday and I am really pleased - great price and they smell DIVINE!
Anyway, I'll stop waffling for now! Im sure your bored of it all already Is anyone doing/done a whiteboard guest book? I am thinking of doing this but wanted to pick someones brains firts.
Take care and cant wait to catch up again!
