    Well I realised there wasn't a thread for us August 2014 brides (only the main 2014 thread) so thought I would start one so we could all keep tabs on how we are getting on! I am getting married on the 30th August 2014 and so far have booked/made/bought:

    -the church
    -the reception venue
    -the photographer
    -got the bridesmaids jewellery
    -got my shoes
    -started making invites
    -started making bridesmaids headpieces
    -made wine charms

    So who else here is marrying August 2014 and how far are you in your planning? xxx

    We were actually thinking of Lapland or somewhere like that. We both prefer the cold & we went to Gran Canaria last year, we're going to Paris this april so thought we'd go for something colder. It's not 100% yet, we might see somewhere we like more! What about you?

    Siany I meant to be letting H2B plan the honeymoon but I think we are going to tour Italy because we can't decide where we want to go most and he really wants to go to Pompei.

    I want to taste Mrs Richardson's cake... hungry

    Ahhh yes Mrs Richardson, I remember you saying now! How did the cake tasting go?

    Kelly, I' told H2B last night that as I chose the venue (& put the deposit down before he'd even viewed it!) that it's only fair if he picks the honeymoon, so he's happy with that :) although there was some talk of going up mountains, so now I'm not so sure!! Lol.

    We're not having fruit cake either, I hate it! Lol

    It was alright, she was a bit skeptical about marrying us as i have been married before, but she understands that this is the only time that i am going to be getting married again. So she agreed to the wedding.

    I think i would have cried if they wouldnt let me have the wedding.

    But i can be a control freak at times lol. my h2b seems so calm about it all and i just want to get it all sorted we have decided one thing though and that's the colour scheme but still not set a date. going dress shopping well looking and seeing what type i like more and hoping that will help things get a wiggle on so we can make a date and then who will be coming and stuff. xx

    We're getting married on the 2nd August and all we've sorted is the church and reception will hopefully get photographer and flowers sorted soon as I think they get booked up quite quickly. I keep thinking its ages away and have loads of time but in sure time will disappear! X
