    going looking at suits thursday.

     

    my hen night is sat 30th july just a night round liverpool there will be around 24 of us. we were goin to go somewhere but id rather have it local so more ppl can come.

     

    tenerife in 4 wks getmy tan so i can try my dress on when i get back!



    we have 23 coming but i am doing an OOT bag per room not per person. So i only need to do 7! It was work collecting the bits and ordering labels for them etc and the cost does add up but if you do it bit by bit and have the time i think you'll be happy. I know i'm glad i did them now :o)

     

    ooo how lovely 4 weeks is not long! Tenerife, yum, nice and hot :o)

I just gave them a call and she quoted me £49 + vat to do it. :o)

        Hi Girls......not been on in a few days & lots to catch up on!!

         

        Nicy your hen night sounds amazing!!  Photos are fantastic!!  My friend is organising mine it is on 7th May, I haven't got a clue what is going on but really looking forward to it.  I know we say it ALL the time but I can't believe we are all having our 'hens'.......so soon now!!

         

        I have done oot bags but like Michelle I have done them per family so had to do 19 in total, have picked bits up over time, quite a few bits from pound shop.....in mine I have put an invite to the wedding day, welcome letter, a rack card from vistaprint with details of our photobucket account so people can upload the photos they have taken, antibacterial handgel with personalised stickers, playing cards with personalised stickers, personalised fridge magnets, insect repellant, disposable wedding day camera, wedding day bubbles & a packet of tissues!!  Also in the ones with children I have put magnetic games, guess who & hangman.

         

        Finished my wedding photo scavenger hunt for the children last night & also put coloured pencils in the favour bags for the childrens dinner place settings with a wedding colouring book to keep them occupied for the wedding dinner....right bargain found a little book shop in bexleyheath that were selling wedding colouring books for a £1!!!!! too good not to pick up!!

         

        For ladies who need things translating mari@wolfestone.co.uk is the lady I used at wolfestone translations, really quick & efficient & you can pay them by paypal.

         

        6 weeks tomorow will be at the Marriott at Gatwick!!!!!  OMG just realised Michelle that we will be at Gatwick on same day as we are staying there the night before!! Its my brothers birthday on the 25th & his wife works for Marriott so we are having a meal there that night!!

          Oh well done you. You have done loads. The lady at Wolfestone i spoke to was lovely. She said they have it back to you in 1 to 2 working days! I thought that was brilliant. Will defo ask for Mari when the time comes, you might have to remind me when it happens ha ha. Have a brain like a siv! lol

           

          OMG how funny!!!!!!!!! we fly at 9.15am on the 24th!! I'm so excited. I love the build up!! :o)

           

          Just been for another sunbed, building up a little tan for my hen :o) I might have to go to bexleyheath then and get some wedding colouring books :o) my bloody car is broke at the mo though.. fan needs doing. Dan can do it but it's still £115 we could do without. His car broke last week and was £300!!! Cars are nothing but trouble. Still least we have ours.. Any news on yours Lyndsey????

           

          Harrison had his brace check this morning and the orthodontist has moved his next appointment to the 6th May!!! The day after my scan (so much going on) and she said there is a 50/50 chance it could come off before Mexico!!!! Not holding my breath but really excited about that :o)

                      Nicy - Can't believe how quickly the wedding is coming for you hun xxx Soooo exciting x For my hen we are going to Bristol staying in apartments there and gonna get very drunk LOL, and we are going to dress up as gangsters!!!!! Looks like we are going up in a limo, I've had a quote and it works out about £45 each for the limo company to pick us and drop us back, after working out train fares it seems the better option, so we should have a good laugh in the limo on the way up!!!!

                       

                      Michelle - Good luck with Harrison's braces xxx Can't wait to see your hen pics OMG it is all happening for you girls   I've got 26 weeks to go until we fly!!!!! xxx

                       

                      Leanne - Don't think I'm going to do OTT bags as Nicy said so far there is only 9 of us going maybe if a few more were coming I probably would. xx
