    We're getting married on 18th October this year - anyone else in October this year? What stages are you at? I feel a bit useless at the moment as there's not a great deal I can do until nearer the time.....

    Oooh I'd love to have dance lessons - swaying from side to side in each others arms is all very dull and boring!!! xx

    I'm getting married on the 23rd October and it feels like I still have everything to organise... the little things are sorted its just the hair/makeup, photographer and rings left to buy, oh and the flowers but we're doing these ourselves.

    Fran you should totally do so much fun and almost like a date night when we go to the lesson! Plus then practicing time at home, something really fun to do with H2B and its our little secret as we're not telling anyone just in case it all goes to hell on the day and we can't remember the steps haha x

    i love the idea of dance lessons however i am only doing about a minute before i invite voulples out to join us as i really hate being the centre of attention!

    i feel like the year is rushing past me and i dont know how i will get all the little things done in time or rememeber them! its surprising as soon as you think its all sorted something comes along you werent expexting. i was forgetting the honemoon insurance!
