    Thanks ladies- what we would love is just soooo expensive and yes it would look amazing but think it's time to have a serious talk to ourselves and go with the cheaper options which will have equal wow factor but less money!

    Do you have any pictures of what you want Michelle? Have you asked a couple of suppliers you might find it at a better price elsewhere???

    I think I may have gone a bit ott with the wedding planning. I've pretty much got everything done that I can. Waiting on venue to answer some questions now so I can crack on with more. Anyway I got bored and have brought shaving stuff, body washes etc for the lads and put them in the wedding box safe so I know they defo have some and that I like the smell of it haha. Every male like l1nxs right? :/

    I've done loads too, I keep finding new things to do. I have a week off from Thursday so I'm planning on making all my invites. Guest list is also down by as my uncle has just got a new job in New Zealand and flies on to live there in September.

    Meeting with the venue and caters today. I'm so excited but nervous at the same time. Have to go without h2b as he will be at work. Mum is having the toddler, I don't think I could manage keeping him from wrecking the place and paying attention to what's being said.

    Sounds like a good idea to get a babysitter for today Tiffany, looking forward to hearing what yummy food you decide on. We don't pick until 6 months before.

    I had a call from the Bridal shop yesterday to say my dress and the bridesmaid dress are in :) Took me by surprise though as they told me mid September so that has excited me this week. Although I was hoping to lose a few lbs before I could try it on again

    Good luck with the venue and caterers Tiffany!

    Kathleen how exciting the dresses are in! My dress arrived early, I was told February/March at the earliest when I ordered last August and it arrived end of November!

    Not sure how I feel about the venue meeting. Wasn't there long at all, my friends wife went into labour minuets after we arrived. All I got told was due to new fire rules in place at the venue we cant have the 80 day guests we were quoted for. We can have 60 at a push but ideally 40-45 is best.

    We've managed to cut the day list but it means some of my sibling and nieces/nephews can not attend the daytime. I was really upset about it but my MOH (my step sister) spoke to them and they all messaged saying they where completely fine with it and that they would just see me later, or come to the church, go to dinner elsewhere and then come. (MOH checked with me before offering this as an option)

    We are also looking into other venues and just getting a cater in to do a huge buffet. That way we can have all 100+ guests at everything. It's just proving very difficult with H2B.

    H2B is now pulling his finger out. He's gone through every last little detail with me and we are almost all sorted. He's had words with his groomsmen and they are sorting a day trip out to try suits on. He's also staying and doing overtime at work! (he hates his job). I asked if he was ill and he had overheard me on the phone to my mum last week when I was struggling with 'terrible two's' and said I was ready to pack my bags and leave (I was having a bad pnd day). It scared him and now he's helping with everything. Even uses the washing machine haha. (sorry little off topic lol)

    So exciting about your dresses Kathleen. I'm really wanting to get mine now but need to wait til my bm's baby decides to make her appearance.

    Hey IDL,

    Hi IDL

    Planning is slow atm, way too much going on family wise and my health is not great atm.

    MOH informed me last night she is pregnant and if she's worked it out right is due 3/4 weeks before the wedding. It's not a huge issue for us as she's my sister and we are having all family kids at the wedding anyway.

    Bm has also said that her and her partner are trying for another after Xmas so she could be anywhere upto 6/7 months pregnant at the wedding.

    Still got suits, rings, cake and shoes to sort.

    Thanks ladies. My Dr is trying to push all the tests I need so we can find out exactly what is going on.

    H2B is helping a lot more with the wedding now I've been told I'm not allowed to do any for a few months (hahaha next joke!)

    Quite a productive weekend, the honeymoon is now booked we are off to the island of Kuramathi in the Maldives for a week all inclusive. Purchased our cake topper too. Decorated our guest book and finished off our pew end decorations. Finalised the guest list so I can complete the invites over the next week.

    Printed invites last week and started finishing them off. Not got much more done wedding wise due to blackouts :'(. We have however managed to cut the guest list again. H2B's ex (mother to his child) is no longer invited (long story).

    Thanks Stacey. Nothing I can't handle. H2bs ex has spread some really nasty rumours about me and my son but he knows they are all lies and it's just made us even stronger. She's even started using there child against him to try and get him to call the wedding off but it's not working. She will give up eventually.

    We managed to cut ours down to 85 from 150 for day time and evening we can have all 250 guests.

    Some people really are pathetic, its the children I always feel sorry for when they are used as a weapon. I'm so glad to hear you and your OH are only getting stronger from it. Your day will be magical no matter what.

    Hi Viki,

    Congratulations and welcome to the 2018 group.

    How exciting for you both as a couple! There is plenty of advice and ideas to be found on here and if you need any help all you need to do is ask.

    Bet your bouncing off the walls Tiff, I was so excited to do the cake shopping, we managed to get my OH wedding ring two weeks ago. Finally managed to get him to try suits on so now I can get that all booked.

    I sure am Stacey.

    Booking the cake tomorrow, then ring shopping Wednesday :D. I've given up on suits for the lads, they've not even looked at any! Despite telling me they had. One groomsmen dropped them all in it when he let slip to his partner, my bridesmaid. Been evil and told oh if they don't have a suit they are out of the wedding party, simple.
