    Cheers Nicy. Well so far we've only got me and my fiance booked aswel as my Mum and Dad. I've got the prices for the other guests so they're just getting their deposits together now so should be booked in a couple of weeks.

    Other than that thats as far as I've got really! I want to get cracking with things but I feel like I'd be doing everything too early, but I suppose it's best to be prepared.

    What about yourself, how far have you got with planning etc.?x

      We have just had our date confirmed by TC as the date we requested 6th May at 1pm (although we did request 4pm) Im so excited.
      My mum and Dad are booked along with FSIL, Hubby and baby. I think thats all thats going to be coming... wish everyone was coming but cost was a mojor factor for most. I have chosen my dress but not bought it yet, will look at getting it at end of year. Stephen is still deciding what to wear, I have always wanted him to wear a kilt (hes scottish) and a few weeks ago he finally agreed (He hates his legs, but i think secretly he always wanted to) but the only thing detering him now is the weight of it.... but im almost positive he will go with it :-)
      I have bought a few bits and bobs and made a few bits 2.
      I just want to go all out and get everything now but i know i need to be sensible about it all :-)

      Im just waiting for my wedding pack to come through now then when i have that i think it will spur me on slighlty. My next mission is to get in touch with WC at the resort so i can find out cost of hair, photog, and confim times etc, i think being intouch with her will make it seem more real :-) x

            Michelle love the headband.

            I have gone with a tiara and no veil - I just couldnt get on with a veil and I know as it will be windy right down on the shoreline it would annoy me. But I love veils on other people.

            I got my tiara at the national wedding fair its was half price (£45) as it was the last one and discontinued - not that it matter to me. I will try and take a picture of it next time I'm at my mums as her spare room is slowly turning into my wedding room!!!

              nicy, we went to party in the (car)park with my family last night, there's a massive fiesta in one of the local towns, the average age was at least 60 i reckon!

              now i'm stuck at work wanting everyone to bugger off home, and instead i'm making cocktails..... it's sunday night people, go home!

                Oh and on a positive note i got a verbal offer of a job following my interview on wednesday - woo hoo
                Hey Ladies

                So much has been going on here, not been on for a few days so will have to have a read and catch up.

                Josie....Congrats on the job thats excellent news yay x

                Woodsylou....Wow you must be soooo excited with only a few days to go, are you all set and ready?

                I have been looking at dresses for the past few weeks now purely because everything is quite expensive i want to have plenty of time to pay for everything so trying to get a head start, so after looking and trying LOADS of different styles on i finally found THE DRESS and have put my deposit down yay was sooo exciting, here it is (the pics are of someone who had the same dress and are selling it on ebay!)

                Oooo, any excuse to flash the dress
                Nicy i'm sure you will still love your dress too. It's stunning, I love it. All our dresses are gorgeous we all have such good taste ha ha...

                Our plans are going well thanx Vicki.. and yesterday it just got better when FI asked his friend that is booking up to be bestman!! Yah!! So happy for him it's all coming together nicely now!

                My friend went to a wedding on Sat and when i looked at the photos she had a lovely hair band in. Exactly what i'm looking for so i'm gonna ask her were she got it from. I'll post pix once she tells me so you can all see what you think..
                awww that's so great! i bet he's over the moon! also, what about borrowing your friend's hair band? save some ££'s!

                what about a voucher to do something with you and H2B once you're back?

                  A voucher is a great idea but its so hard to get us all together at the best of times, I havent seen my parents for about 4/5 months due to work, cost etc on both sides (which is a sore subject) so im not sure that would work, but thanks for the idea, its definatly something to play with :-)

                  Glad you like the dress!!! Definatly worth the risk x

                  WOW the count down is really really on now... I just cant imagine how you are feeling at the moment!!!

                  Yesterday sounds like a ball... what a lovely day for you, everyone together :-) xox

                    what about then a voucher for them to do something on their own together?

                    i feel very odd. shakey. it's not wedding panic, it's more holiday stress you know?! trying to ensure we have everything and we can get it all packed etc! i will feel so much better once we're out there!

                      WOW, In that case your so calm..... Just to have holiday stress.... If thats what its like I have nothing to worry about!!!! ;-p
                      It will probably feel more like your wedding when you get out there and the holiday stress has passed!!! How exciting :-)

                      xoxo
