Alright.. getting back into wedding planning!  I have a small but super exciting update:

 

I found out that Colin's mom and best friend are flying in from London in February for my bridal shower!!!  I can't believe it and am so happy to have them there!  I have decided to have the corset added to my dress, so I'm dropping it off on Jan 9th and have arranged the fitting and pickup date for when Col's mom is here  :) It's so nice that she can be so involved in everything!  I will post pictures of the dress when I pick it up with my veil.

 

I ordered my wedding band on Monday night!  It's a dainty half eternity white gold band from peoples.  I got it on the last night of their extended cyber sale and it should arrive in a couple of weeks.  Will of course post some pics of it!

 

We've also started filling out our wedding wishes to send to the resort.  We now have 43 people booked, not including col and I!  We have about 5 more who say they are "definitely booking!"...

 

I purchased some really pretty silver ribbon for the bouquets:

I figured now is the time to find those silver accents I'm after  :)

 

Over the Christmas break, Colin and I will be looking for his wedding band, suits for the guys, searching for our cake topper, downloading some more music for our app and finishing up our wedding wishes.

 

Time is seriously flying!!!

@deecol awesome that Colin's mom and best friend can attend your bridal shower! it's hard when FI's families are so far away. so happy they are able to be there for you.

 

i know what you mean with the silver accents. i have found so many cute gold votives for our wedding...in the christmas section of stores! perfect timing :)

Dee, that's wonderful news that Col's mom and best friend are coming over for your bridal shower. That's really sweet of them. And I can't wait to see your ring and dress with the corset built in. Also, welcome back....we've missed you

@deecol Definitely post a pic of the band. That's where we got my two, on sale as well. Gotta love bridal jewellery sales! And of course pics of your dress! That's great that UK family can attend in February. Are you going to have a hen night as well, or only the bridal shower? It's one of the better times to travel for airfares from the UK (I generally use Jan to Apr and Sep-Oct for the cheaper fares). Will definitely be a fun time!!


I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

@ashhtayy It's super hard with them being so far away, I'm so glad we have a chance to involve her more instead of just seeing her in Mexico!

 

@Wafflesmom eeee I know!  I couldn't believe it when she told me!  They have had it booked for months and were going to just walk in and surprise me but decided to tell me because they know how much of a planner I am lol.  Since I've found out they're coming, I've already made us mani appts and a lunch reservation for the day before.  I will for sure post pics of everything!  I can't wait to get more stuff done and share it!  I missed you ladies!!!!  It's been so busy at work and home and I missed being on here - I'm back!  ;) I've been able to pop in occasionally but I need to catch up on everyone's threads.

 

@acw271011 Oh I didn't realize you got your rings at People's as well - it's definitely going to be gorgeous then :) I couldn't resist the price!  I will for sure post pics of the band and dress and anything else that do - I can't wait!  I'm having a hen night as well (love that you called it that!) but we will be doing it in Mexico 2 nights before the wedding,  All of Col's friends and groomsmen will be there, as well as the girls I met when I lived in London,  so we will be splitting up the men and ladies and having our nights there. So I'll have my bridal shower in Feb here and bachelorette/hen-do in Mexico on April 28th.

Love the rings together! Beautiful  :D

 

On a side note, you're getting married 3 weeks after me - apparently I need to get my butt in gear and start thinking about ordering my wedding band, not to mention a dozen other things I've been putting off for the last few months, lol.
