    Thought id do one of these mostly to keep track of everything if nothing else.

    My Oh proposed to me on 18.10.13 after almost 8 years together I never thought it would ever he always said he didn't want to get married so it has took awhile to sink in that its actually happening. and tbh its all happened really fast. I went to a wedding fayre in what is now our venue to have a look around and get some ideas. I went back a few weeks later with oh after I had looked at other venues, we ended up booking I just love the place and so did Alan.

    with the venue booked less than a month after we got engaged we got into the whole planning wedding fever but as it was Christmas we put it on the back burner.

    In January we booked and paid the deposit for the registrar as we are getting married in the venue.

    We had our engagement party in Feb (We wanted to celebrate the engagement with all our family and friends and it was a great night) The day after that we went to a band showcase and we just loved them even with our hangovers so we booked them too :)

    My future BILs dad is a professional photographer so he is doing our photography at an exceptionally cheap price.

    Me and my sister (My one and only bridesmaid)went dress shopping and i've found the dress and bought it too so happy with it. Ive also got a great idea of what I want for my BM dress.

    We now have our bridal party sorted.

    Our son will be our page boy he will be almost 6 years old at the time of the wedding
    Best man is Alans life long friend
    usher 1 is one of his other best friends
    usher 2 is our nephew he will be almost 12 by the time the wedding comes
    My sister is my Bridesmaid
    and the there is my parents and Alans mum.

    Going to the Scottish wedding show on sunday to get some more ideas but I think ive seen my flowers and the cake (My friend has offered to do it as cheap as possible for me).

    All in all I feel that im am really organised the only problem is how much it all costs lol (We aren't stressing about the money and we can save and pay for it ourselves)

    I'm an organised control freak lol, I need to know everything is in order or it stresses me out. (It's only when I'm planning things like sons party's etc I'm not so organised with everything else)

    I don't think ill book anything else for awhile but I won't stop looking for ideas x

    We are now thinking about changing the tartan for the guys as my cousin who gets married 3 months before us told us he is having the same tartan Im a bit annoyed as he knew what we had decided on but as they get married 3 months before us I don't want people to think we copied them (I know that sounds childish but that side of the family are like that).

    So far I have booked and paid deposit for the venue (great package)
    Booked and paid deposit for registrar
    Organised the photographer (fbil's dad I'd doing it for £150)
    Ordered our cake and paid deposit
    Organised my dress and pad 25% of it
    Booked the band and paid the deposit
    Bought wedding insurance
    Know what the guys are having as favours
    Organised my hair and make up.


    Still need to sort out
    flowers I keep changing my mind on what I want.
    BM dress (Going shopping in June after we have all been on holiday)
    Kilts for the guys
    Favours for the woman although I'm swinging towards a little candle
    Coaches (we aren't having cars I have horrendous car sickness and will stay hotel night before)
    stationary
    Accessories for me and my sister
    Thank you gifts

    Don't think I've missed anything

    Started buying the Littlle things that run away with the money.

    Got my sister a bridesmaid travel bag and I'm going to fill it with little toiletries, compact mirror and other bits and bobs.
    Waiting on the bride one coming for myself we are staying in the hotel the night before so it will be used.
    Also got mum and dad little coasters with a poem in about being MOTB AND FOTB got a sister one too.

    Pretty much decided on out invites we are going to do them ourselves as we are only having gatefold invite with inserts. (H2b is a computer geek and wants to do something himself).

    My friend bought us a wedding planner (a bit late but still useful) and also a wedding memory book,
    I had already got the guest book and they all match.

    Feel like I'm too organised though but if I wasn't I'd just stress.

    We're getting married in Airth Castle. I love Loch Lomond and we always said we would get married there but we saw Airth Castle and fell in love.

    Are you have the same colour of tartan on your cake as in the picture? Ours is going to be the royal stewart.

    I've got a feeling thats its one of those things where right to the day we wont feel organised haha xxx

    No the tartan in the cake will change I've not decided 100% but it will probably be the pride of Scotland modern tartan but h2b and ds will. Have the Lindsay tartan (oh's family tartan) some people think it's silly that those two will be different but it's their day too so they are allowed to stand out x

    Tonight I bought my tiara and veil I love them and they go with my dress perfectly got both for £178.00. Don't have proper pics of them but I managed to get a sneaky of my dress the veil is a 72 length with scattered crystals which I knew id get an the tiara is perfect for my dress, I will get them in a few weeks I can now officially say I have two things fully paid for lol. I tried on some lovely shoes too and Im going for a 4 1/2 inch heel closed toe shoe just need to get them nearer the time.

    Here me in my dress :)

    Your tiara and veil are beautiful and match your dress perfectly :) I don't think its weird at all that your oh and ds will be wearing a different tartan from the theme. There will be all different tartans at our wedding my dad will be wearing our family tartan and my H2Bs cousins will all be wearing different tartans too.

    I recognize the the background in that picture. I think we got our dresses from the same shop haha xxx

    Bath street per chance?

    There was a tiara that kept jumping out at me but it just didn't go with the dress thankfully tho as it cost £250 lol I knew what veil I wanted and we tried a longer one on but it just didn't go right.

    The only other person with Oh family tartan is his uncle but its slightly different as his is ancient and H2bs is modern.

    I feel like everything is falling into place x

    My H2b

    This is my H2b in his kilt

    Depending on the colour of my BM dress will determine what tartan we go for but its more than likely going to be Pride of Scotland Modern as its very purple and my BM dress is going to be Cadbury purple

    Yup thats the one :)

    Your oh's kilt looks smart. The Pride of Scotland will tie in lovely with cadbury purple. We're having the Royal Stewart tartan as my oh's family doesnt have tartan, they always use this tartan as if you don't have a tartan traditionally the king lets you use his. I'm going to try and get my bridesmaid dresses in a shade of red to match. xxx

    Been looking at favour ideas tonight and I'm now thinking of getting the ladies little compact mirrors I've narrowed it down to 8 oh jings I need help lol they look good and are so under our budget.

    I'm also thinking about getting white choc truffles if the price is right as we tried them and they were out of this world.

    Managed to pin my sister down to a date for going bridesmaid dress shopping 21st June can't wait and hopefully we find one we both like, she is of the opinion it's what I want but she needs to like it too.

    Just booked a videographer. My wedding planner has changed (Might be for the better) spoke through things with the new WP and she seems really nice and has been working at the hotel for years. Sent a few emails about flower consultations just waiting tohear back from them and im going BM dress shopping with my sister at the end of this month 3 shops in 3 different areas of Glasgow Think we are mad but hopefully we get what we are looking for. Everything seems to be coming together nicely :)

    Just went through the guest list and we have to cut people from the day and we are over the numbers for the evening. not such a bad thing for the evening as we can just not invite workmates. Cutting people from the meal is going to be difficult though.

    Had a lot of stress with SIL telling me she wont be bringing her husband or the kids to the wedding because she cant get a room big enough to stay in the hotel (She should have booked the rooms before anyone else she had 3 months more notice)

    Got a barrage of abuse from my cousin because she's not getting an all day invite to the wedding BUT my other cousin is (The cousin that is getting an all day invite is like another sister and her kids will be there all day) the cousin who isn't invited all day has told me to use their spaces for someone else as they obviously aren't important enough Blah blah blah we aren't close and they could even be bothered to come to mine or my sisters engagement party why would I spend £75pp on them when they cant be bothered with us.

    Today we went shopping for Bridesmaid dress im so happy to only have the one BM as it means I don't have to worry about the same dress suiting 2+ people.

    We went to the first place for 10.30am and she tried on 2 dresses. one of the dresses we saw at the wedding fayre so we knew we wanted to try that dress on it was perfect but I wanted to try the other 2 places we had appointments but I honestly thought we would have been back for that dress.

    The second place was amazing we tried on 12 or so dresses very different styles and it was so difficult we managed to get it down to two but still couldn't decide so off to the third place.

    Thus boutique was gorgeous the two ladies running it were so lovely and o down to earth. I didn't think we were going to get anything in here tbh but gave it a go anyway. the lady asked what we had seen so far that we liked and we tried on a couple of chiffon dresses which we eventually said no to so it was back to satin my sister tried on a couple and we whittles it down to two.

    Then came the hard part do we go for the first dress or the last dress in the end we went for the last dress it was just so much more elegant suited her and wasn't far off what we had in mind. so we got it. It takes 5 months to come in so should be here for the end of November and only cost £165. not bad considering my budget was £180

    All in all was a very good day shopping.

    Bridesmaid dress

    Bridesmaid dress but not in our colour has been ordered in Cadbury purple woohoo another thing of the list :)

    13 months exactly until I become Mrs Lindsay :)

    Went to the venue of Saturday for lunch with my mum lynn and Nicola and the food was AMAZING I cant wait for our wedding breakfast everyone is going to love the food :)

    then had 2 flower consultations one is the venues preferred florist and who will be providing the centrepieces but I can honestly say I am not that impressed with them. they asked a couple of general questions and asked me what I wanted and then they would email the quote. Still not had an email from them.

    The second lady works from home Lisa and her consultation was so different first question was what did I have in mind then she said do you have a picture of your dress when I showed her it she said wow I love it and then said that a shower would work better but both would be lovely as obviously there is a price difference. She showed my pictures of 'her brides' (and she remembers all their names) in dresses similar to mine with both hand tied bouquets and showers and I have to agree the shower looks a bit better as it just flows nicer. She also asked the colour of my dress and when I said ivory she said ivory white or cream I was stumped as I thought ivory was ivory LOL anyway I said it was probably white and my sister agreed (As she was with me when I tried it on) she again showed me pictures of different flowers in the two shades and she showed me a picture of a bride white a white ivory dress with cream ivory roses and it looked hideous thankfully she thought so too. The other thing that is making me swing towards her and not the shop is that she has said she will tell me delivery is noon but if its a scorching day or clammy she will hold the flowers back to keep them cool for as long as possible (Up to half an hour before the ceremony) to keep them the freshest they can be for when I walk down the aisle the shop would deliver tham and that's the end of that.

    Just need to decide what bouquet I want now

    A little bit disappointed as my sister ended up telling me what she was planning for my hen weekend because my cousins who is 18 asked if she could go with us my sister had asked last week if everyone was over 25 but I had assumed it was for an activity turns out the place she had in mind only allows same sex large groups over the age of 25.

    I was speaking to Lynn to find out if she could change the activity so the our cousin could come and she didn't want to give too much away just said that if she goes it blows one of the ideas out the water so after umming and ahhing she told me whereshe was planning to go and its only my dream hen weekend

    A big lodge so everyone sleeping in the same place with a hot tub and on site spa and organised activities and its close to a big city centre so close enough for a night out as well as plenty of fun in the lodge. I felt a bit rotten saying cousin couldnt come but she can come to my hen do in Glasgow.

    Just hoping it all comes together and the other girls don't think its too expensive :)

    I have decided on and ordered my flowers and buttonholes woohoo so excited.

    Decided to go for the bridal shower for my bouquet and im glad that I have it cost a bit more than a hand tied but will be so worth it. the other flower place never bothered to send me my quote like they said they would never mind reply to my email so im happy with the lady doing my flowers and the other place can do my centre pieces as its included in the hotel package.

    No further forward with the hen weekend plans but my sister will probably keep that all to herself so I don't find out anything else.

    A little over a year until im a married woman :)

    Yes I won my dress on here :) I had £1000 to spend in Berketex. I went a little over but I fell in love with the dress I have chosen so my Mam paid the extra :) There's a pic of it in my pictures on my profile (not of me in it) but I have ordered Ivory.

    Got a call from Bridal shop my Tiara and Veil is ready to be collected woohoo :)

    We have pretty much decided on our invites. Quite simple and not that expensive plus the lady will do RSVPs and Guest information as we like :)

    Need to go through my list and see what we have booked/still to book :)

    Ive found a fantastic site online to get jewellery from. Would love pearls but I live in the real world and not willing to spend £500+ for a set with earings/necklace
