    Well the time has come to post my planning thread

    Jamie and I met when we were 5yrs old, we lived in the same street and use to play together. I always thought he was pretty cool then as he had real pictures in frames and not posters in his play shed. Well he moved house when he was 10 and our friendship drifted apart. When I was 22 both of our friends started hanging out together and it wasn’t long before the flirting started. Within a couple of weeks Jamie and I began going out. After our first holiday abroad together in Mexico I fell pregnant and we had our son Harry who is now 11. We moved into our house two months before having Harry. Christmas day 2006 we’d opened all our presents when Jamie & Harry disappeared upstairs, they came back with a shoe-box sized wrapped present. When I opened it both Jamie and Harry got down on one knee and said ‘will you marry me’. I burst into tears saying ‘yes’ then immediately phoned my mum to tell her the news. I planned on a short engagement but Jamie had other plans: extention, holidays, oh yes and another baby. In 2008 we had our daughter Hollie who is now 3. So with no more excuses in 2009 we decided that 2011 would be the year that we got married and OMG where has that 2 years of planning gone!!!!!

    We always said that we would get married abroad (can’t be doing with the hassle here). So we got the brochures and went round the world but kept coming back to Mexico, very apt as it was our first holiday abroad. So we agreed Mexico it is and we just fell in love with the Sensatori Resort.

    Well we have 23 of us going which we are over the moon about! Everyone I want at my wedding is going. I have 4 big bridesmaids (my 3 cousins and Jamie sister) Hollie is our flower girl (and bound to steal the show on the day), my nephew Oliver is my page boy and Harry is Jamie’s best man (can’t wait for the speech he’s been watching Gavin and Stacey to pick up tips from Smithy!!)

    We get married on Tuesday  2nd August  on the beach at the Sensatori Resort and we have our AHR on Sunday 28th August at Lords Golf and Country Club.

    Okay now where do we start, the most important thing:



    Phoenix Gowns Ltd T700
