      I did the T shirts on Vistaprint yesterday as well.


      Nicy - Just a note with Vistaprint - they will only keep your items stored for about 4-5 weeks and then they will leave your portfolio; dont lose any!

        Michelle you didnt say where you got your jewelry from

        Josie which t shirts did you add to your portfolio? I think i ordered them correctly ill just keep my fingers crossed i did fifteen all with there names on the back.If there wrong ill say it was a deliberate error lol thats the one thing with vista print it s not easy to do repeat products with minor changes But hey ho there done and i got a couple of free pens just need to reorder the order of service which is a bummer cos ill have to pay for postage i was worn out after the t-shirt ordering so gave it a miss.

        Anyone spent the weekend wedding shopping?

          Girlies tell me what you think honestly of course of the music we think we have chossen for our wedding ceremony.

          I wanted some music playing as everyone is arriving all 20 haha sooo here goes

          1 Enya = Watermark instrumental my dads irish and i wanted something typically irish even though hes not gunna be there

          2 Buddy Hollies = True Love Ways one of Pauls favourites

          3 Frank Sinatra= Come Fly With Me. Ryans girlfriend and my dad love Frank

          4Lady In My Life = Michael Jackson I wanted a MJ song i heard the words and the tears fell.I love MJ XX

          5 Disneys = A Whole New World.  Pauls girls picked this and they will make there entrance to it im sure Chloe will sing lol

          6 Shania Twains = From this Moment On.Pauls choice, i love the start for me to walk to

          7 Disneys = Under The Sea instumental will play throughout the sand ceremony.

          7 Toy Storys = You Got A Friend In Me  for us to walk out to


          What do you think to much cheese?

          our ceremony is quite long i  borrowed it from on here were doing the sand and hand ceremony plus i found some wonderful  quotes about how children describe being in love and we are using them aswell.The wedding planner suggested we use our children to read them and other guests to take part ive kept this to myself ready to surprize them if we decide to take her up on it.

          If my computer hadnt crashed i would post it but its gone, the only copy is with the wedding planner in Greece i hope

          Its really hard to create a ceremony that will last a decent amount of time but keep everyone tuned in and at the same time be true to Paul and i.The thought of all the time and effort we have put in and the cost to our guests i felt responsible for putting on a ceremony that lasted more than  a wink of an eye.Id hate anyone to say" huh is that it "

          Do i need to change any songs honesty is always the best policy girls x

            Sorry hun, i got my jewellery from Debenhams. Jon Richard range... (kind of nice as my surname at the mo is Richards, ha ha)... I just got the necklace and braclet it is very delicate looking. My dress is fussy at the top so didn't want anything to chunky. I will try and post a pix when i'm back off holiday (we're going on a 4 day break today just down to the coast, i will miss you girls) My something borrowed is going to be my sisters diamond stud earrings... new is my dress (and everything else ha ha).. blue is my "i do" shoe stickers and old....hhmmm my mum is going to give me something old to attach to my bouqet!! Sorted!!!


            The Mac makeup sounds fab! Do you have to book an appointment? I have no clue on makeup and will do my own so it would be nice for someone to show me how :o)


            I love your music and it's so nice that they all have a meaning to you too! It's so sweet and i wouldn't change it :o)


            Bye for a week girls, will miss ya xxxxxx

                roo i love the shania song, makes me go goosey. and you can never have too much cheese.


                going to book myself into the mac counter next time i come back to sheffield. better save up some pennies! could do it here, but "less is more" does not apply in spain, the ladies on the makeup counters look like they put their makeup on in the dark!

                    Hi girls im home from collecting my dress and am feeling quite tearful i love it.I tried it on and we had to take the straps up a little and the hem needed tweaking at the front but after an hour i went back tried it on again and walzed around the shop trying things in my hair.

                    With the help of the sales lady im forgetting the birdcage veil and fascinators the lady said the dress is so different as its all lace i dont need to add anything ive got the crystals sewn under the bust so a simple hairband will be perfect.

                    I just need to find somewhere to hang it.They recommend a duvet cover and she said i can roll it into a suit case and it will be fine.I just need to keep the top flat cos of the bones.

                    Just a side note i heard the sales lady say to another bride its £105.00 to have the dress cleaned and boxed.They launder the dresses in other words they machine wash them.So theres no reason we couldnt with the help of someone with a high washing line do it ourselves.

                    Then just buy the box.Worth a thought

                    Whilst waiting the hour i went to good ole Primark and bought two ribbed vest tops and have just applied bride and bridesmaid and flowergirl to each of them.It was easy but just needed to hold the iron on longer than it said.I did place another piece of cotton a pair of knickers lol over the top just because i was worried id get a scorce mark on the tops.

                    Hobbycraft have a lot more wedding things in now but on a downer they have crimbo things in there aswell.

                    Abbie thanks for popping in where would us brits be without all of you American and Canadian brides. Our guests will think we are super talented lol when infact we have borrowed so much info from you all.

                    Janapana i loved my mac makeover and i was braver than i would normally be with my colours i love the false lashes.Why dont you get a spanish makeup counter makeover just for the fun of it

                    Im now on the search for a few bits for the photobooth table i got some pink glasses from Primark off to search for fake moustches.

                    Yayy a good day today xx hope everyone is feeling as up beat as me xxxx
