I haven't been on for ages, so thought I'd start off with an update on the wedding plans. I got outfits for my 2 bridesmaids - what do you think?
I wanted something a little different and kept coming back to chocolate! The skirt is just below the knee, A-line. I picked up some really cute necklaces that will go well with the floral design. I'm having a fitting for my dress next week and I've ordered my tiara.
Rich's aunt has offered to make our cake, so now we just have to decide how we'd like it decorated. I think I found a florist that will do me a good price on bouquets, corsages and buttonholes and we've decided to use our favour boxes as centrepieces rather than have (v. expensive) floral arrangements on the tables.
Found a pianist for the ceremony too - I'm going to hear him play next week when I'm over in Ireland. Just Â£120 for 3-4 hours (guest arrivals, ceremony, pre-dinner drinks) which I thought was a great price. Still haven't decided on music for the civil ceremony though. Any ideas for me? My cousin walked down the "aisle" to Abba's "I do, I do, I do"
Our invitations went out and we are getting replies in thick and fast - we should have around 50 guests and another 30 or so who'll join for the evening party.
Rich has planned his stag do - a camping weekend in Pembrokeshire no doubt with some kayaking, climbing and biking thrown in for good measure. Myself and a few of the girls are having a nice meal out followed by a spa session the next day - what a treat! I can't wait. Rich tells me he has planned the honeymoon - it's all a surprise
Oh and we got our rings!!!!! Mine's a plain platinum band to match the engagement ring and Rich went for Titanium in the end.
So I feel like we are getting there slowly but surely. How are your plans all going ladies?
