    Hi everyone. I wasn't going to do one of these but now we have lots booked and organised I've changed my mind lol.

    My H2B and I became a couple on the 12th June 2009 but we already knew each other a little bit. I already had a Son from a previous relationship and he and my H2B get on great and sometimes my Son will call him dad which I love. We also have a Son together.
    We got engaged in June 2014 and will become husband and wife in June 2016, a day before our 7 year Anniversary.

    What we have booked already:

    Church - Deposit paid

    Venue - Deposit paid

    Car - Deposit paid

    Harpist - Deposit paid

    Sweet Buffet - Deposit paid

    Flowers - Deposit to pay

    My Dress - Deposit paid

    Cake - Deposit paid

    Photographer - Deposit paid

    My Ring - Deposit paid

    Still got lots to do. H2b has seen a ring he likes so will be putting down a deposit in a couple of weeks.

    We want to get as much done as possible this year so we can relax a bit before the wedding and not be running around getting stressed leading up to it, but we'll see lol x

    I wouldn't worry, you've got loads booked already!

    I booked my wedding in about 4 months but regret it and wish I'd spread things out a bit more. I get married in April but haven't done a thing since about June! Take your time and enjoy it :)

    Went to a wedding fair yesterday and booked a postbox to hire. It's the nicest one we've seen so far and cheapest too. Also found a lady who does wedding stationary and a really good price so will probably get her to do our invites, order of service and name cards. It felt so nice walking past various things saying booked, booked, booked :). We also looked at the suits and have match them up perfectly to the colour of the bridesmaids dresses :)

    Yes I'm in full on wedding mode again as had a break for a couple of months end of last year. We have got 2 more wedding fairs to go to and then I don't think we will need to go to any more. The only big things left are the suits, bridesmaids dresses and dj I think.

    Our favour boxes arrived today. Was going to get them to match the stationary but it was much cheaper to buy them online. We are really pleased with them.

    place cards
    table plan
    order of service
    BM dresses
    flower girl dresses
    flower girl shoes
    suits
    H2b's ring
    decorations
    favours
    veil
    thank you gifts
    underwear
    shoes

    I think that is everything, hope I haven't forgot anything.

    Yes I saw them in Lilac :) I've made one up already and they are really easy to put together. They are perfect for what we want :) You get 100 in a pack but we will only need about 52. Still a lot cheaper buying them this way x

    It's good that they don't take too long, at least it won't stress you out too much lol! We just got lilac organza bags in the end and we are filling them with either 2 lilac heart chocolates or mini eggs, haven't decided yet lol x

    We have an appointment with our DJ tonight to go through everything and get an idea of the price. I want to add mood lighting onto our package so need to find out how much extra it would be.

    Well I haven't updated this for a while.
    I'm on the hunt for a hair stylist as a friend said she would do my hair as my wedding present but she has just told me that she hasn't got time to do hair anymore and has got rid of all her stuff. I've been in touch with the lady doing my make up and she has recommended a few ladies to me so hopefully it will get sorted.

    We are in the process of sorting out stationary. We've seen a design that we both like and we want everything to match. We just need to get a quote. The stationary will consist of Day invites, Eve invites, name cards, table name cards, Seating plan and order of service.

    We are going to start looking at hyms soon and decide which ones we want. We will probably have 2 hyms and 1 reading.

    We booked our honeymoon last week so that's another thing ticked off.

    All of our decor is sorted. I ordered some more rose petals for the tables and they are really lovely :)
