    So the big day is getting ever nearer and I thought I would start a diary thread here as I seem to be facing things that leave me with questions and so anyone can help me out and comment if they think I've missed anything.

    To do:
    Favours
    Wedding dress finalise
    Finally ... pay everything off!

    Glad you've done a diary too. We're so close together with our weddings! :)

    Firstly, what are your questions?

    The good thing is your list is only little things, looks like you've got all the big stuff sorted! x

    I know! Only just under a week apart :)

    Question wise, I wrote that but can't remember right now haha. They literally keep popping up though when I sort things so thought I could add them to this in future.

    Most stuff sorted yep, paid off our honeymoon today and had all RSVPs for day, table plan done. Il add some pics as theme is keys.

    Chosen cake and decor and flowers and band etc. waiting for my first dress fitting still though eeee

    Thanks lovelies x it's been a lot of fiddly stuff but it's all starting to come together now so I'm very happy. Still ironing out kinks but will get there. Cake is going to be lemon on bottom, choc with whit choc cream middle and vanilla sponge with raspberry and white choc filling top. Had our testing sesh Saturday... Not looking forward to slimming W this week haha!

    Just really need to figure out the actual display of table plan so names are clearer.

    Are you having similar thoughts then flossie? Xx

    Kind of.. we're having a pastels colour scheme along with a country garden/rustic/shabby chic kind of feel, so the same sort of natural, under-stated look you're going for I think. xx

    aprils61 we are doing honeymoon contributions as gift but had to pay off by today and then we get the money guests pay in back. Booked through a travel counsellor who set up the online thing also for free, she was amazing, we just told her the type of hol we wanted and £ and she sent through loads of ideas and quotes. Ended up going for 2 weeks in Cancun, Mexico... CANNOT WAIT! Xx

    Will do Flossie, if you wanted to make your own to go with your colours etc p/ put your own spin on them I don't mind giving you some tips on how we did it. Otherwise they only sold them in America and they were like £300 plus postage! So DIY was the only choice if I wanted them and I did :) really pleased with how they've come out too xx

    Ah no, I'm using a company in Bristol just up the road from me. I know the lady that owns it. We got engaged 2 years before our wedding date but it's getting closer now :)

    We are getting married in a Church in Bristol and having the reception at a Venue in Bath x

    Naomi, my best tip would be p1nterest. Get searching! That's how I found mine, just adapted the idea to suit my theme/ colours.

    It will fly by Katie! I love Bath, it's so beautiful. We are also getting married in a church just outside of bristol. I literally cannot wait now although I am finding this stage of the planning the most intolerable. I just want it to be done and the day to arrive now! Xx

    Yeah I know what you mean about wanting to make things but finding the right time. I received the favour holders today (we're doing grand national betting slips as it's the day aft our wedding) so obviously now need to wait until literally the week before to get the bets. Only have 7 kids favour bags to make up so won't take up too much space. Next weekend I want to play around with the table plan again and at least decide on the final look. What are you doing for your favours April?

    image.jpg
    image.jpg


    The two glittery ones for our little BM and page boy. I'm going to just put some sweets in them at the moment but would appreciate suggestion on what else to include. The ages range is 2 x 1-2 yr olds, 5 between 5 and 9, 2 x 12 yr olds. I can make the contents different. I was thinking bubbles butim pretty sure they will anoy the hell out of my guests with them!
