    I really love the fans, i've seen them on a few websites but they're quite expensive for one, can anybody suggest a website to get them from that are reasonably priced.

    I got mine from ebay they are really cheap on there - only a few quid for 20+

      [QUOTE=michelle2011;1356567]Charmaine - i really hope your FMIL comes round. We have also had hiccupps with family and friends because of our decisions but at the end of the day EVERYBODY has to respect what you and FI want. I had a row with FMIL back in Jan and things are still not right now. I will never forgive her for interfering and hurting me the way she did but she has settled down now.... Finger's x'd she will accept it and get on with it! (thank yourself she dosen't live 5mins away like mine does ha ha) You can switch her off when you want. DONT let anyone spoil your plans hun! xx[

      She'll come around eventually, FI is going to speak to her later today on SKYPE. Me and my FMIL had an argument too when we were trying to arrange FI 30th Birthday a couple of years ago....things have never and will never be the same between us but like you said i'm just thankful that she lives away now. Not going to let anybody ruin our special day. xx

        Hey Nicy , you are so quick at getting onto the DIY projects you put me to shame :-) i think they look best with just the handle and not the ones up the spine - you have done a good job. I did a DIY project today I'll see if I can upload some pics as they are only on my phone..... x

          So I actually did some wedding stuff today as I haven't done ANY for so long and have realised 6 months on Wednesday I will leaving to go to Mexico so I really need to start finalising and doing stuff. I decided to do OOT bags, but for the actual bag I am only using a paper bag / gift bag as I know if I had them made up or got proper beach bags no-one would use them so thought I will 'customise' my own - went into Hobbycraft and they were doing 10 large bags for £2.50 so I grabbed the last pack!!! Then just designed and printed the A4 sheet which I will stick onto the bag once I am out there and made personalised name tags for each of the bags I only have 9 to make as we are only doing one per couple. This is just a mock up but hopefully, i didnt stick everything together v well, but you get the idea. (Sorry for the poor picture I took it on my phone....) x

                  Thanks for your comments lovely ladies x

                  I know 6 months - I really dont know where the time is going and I really havent done anything..... I did however make list upon list today and have a notebook now with 'final lists' scribbled on the front - FI says I am now not allowed to add to it or change my mind on anything!!! Of course I agreed.......... in principle :-) x
