    OMG, am I the next one???? :o

    Well, I'm trying to think if I'm forgetting anything, but it is hard.

    Decoration is mainly sorted, just need to design/print off the seating plan, get a blackboard for the guest book signs, and decide how to do the table numbers (I don't have a holder yet). Also, the flowers we are doing the day before (my bouquet base is done).

    Favour, they were all ready to go, until my beloved cat drop all of them on the floor and destroy 5 of them. I'm making some more and it will be just fine... Also need to make the tiny labels to go on them.

    Outfits are all done, apart from my mums. Mum and Dad arrive on the other Friday (10th), so we're dressing shopping on the Saturday. I am having my last fitting this Saturday.

    At the moment, I'm trying to decide the best way to do the order of services, if printing at home or sending to a printing company. The design is done, so just checking cost wise. We've ordered the place cards.

    Also need to sort the guests transportation, but I've been in contact with a company and it's half way there.


    So yeah, loads of bits, but getting there (I hope). Very nervous, excited, scared... But it will be just fine!

    Thanks, Emily. I'm very hopeful everything will be fine. By the way, in the end, where did your hubby took you for the honeymoon?


    Updating the to-do list (for my own sake hahaha)

    Decoration: just need to sort the flowers now, but that will be done the day before.

    Favour: candles still in production...

    Outfits: Had my last fitting today and the dress looks just perfect! Completely in love with it <3 Mum's outfit has been basically decided, just need to order it.

    Order of services will be printed at home. I've ordered the bits and everything should be here next week.

    And transportation has been arranged, just need to pay the deposit.

    Getting there!

    Lesley, that's definitely not my idea of organized lol I'm trying my best, but going crazy atm. Just printed the test for the order of service and seems too light the colour, plus the printing smear when you rub your finger (to fold it in half...)

    We will get there lol We are organizing the whole house as mum and dad arrive in less than 48H. Freaking out =x

    Emily your photographs are fabulous! I'm still waiting for mine from my photographer and rather annoyingly nobody seemed to take too many photos - they say because they were enjoying the day too much, I hope that's true! But there are a few pics in one of my albums on my wall - I don't have Power User status so can't upload them here unfortunately!

    Camila, does it still smudge when it dries or is it still smudging? Could you put tissue paper in between? Good luck with your parents coming over xx

    Oo Emily will check out your post in a bit x

    I'm looking at preserving my bouquet, has anyone done this at all/doing this?

    Loz, we only have a few pics. Our photographer out some of the morning photos on an [email protected] while we are having dinner so that then the evening guests can look at them on the day. He then uploads them to book of face the next morning. Loved this part of his service :):) Cant wait to get all of them and fully edited too!

    Camilla, we had to leave everything to dry for a day before cutting etc.

    Lesley, I looked at it but it was so expensive! Also look at what colour your flowers will turn. Mine were a dark red but turned a nasty brown when dried so I didn't think it was worth paying for it. I just left it to dry in the house and will keep it myself.

    Thank Emily,

    Did you press them or let them dry like pot puri?

    I have spoken to a company and they can help with the colour but I have booked it as I can't press or dry mine as we are flying back with them. I have very little I can actually keep from the day and I am hoping hat I can take them framed to our party so people can see them. It wasn't that expensive either which is lucky, also I didn't have to pay for my flowers as they are part of my package so I haven't had to pay for them separately (can kind of justify the cost) I would have loved to do it myself but I just cant get them pressed tightly enough to stop them going bad on my flight home. We only get 170-200 pictures for the whole day in New York so this is hopefully something I get to keep and my OH will not be putting a wedding picture on the wall! He doesn't like pictures of him at all!

    I have my hen this weekend :)

    I have never been successful drying my own flowers, hopefully they look better when the lady does them for me! If not I am not sure what I will do.

    How do you feel 5 weeks on? Have you started changing your name and stuff yet?

    I am having a major dilemma, two weeks away and Kevin's brother, yes both, have said to his mum that they might not be coming now. Not said anything to us at all. I am pretty livid, so upset for my OH as well and peed that I could have invited my friends instead if it had been more notice. I till don't even know if they are coming and we fly on the 9th. I just don't know how people can be so cruel, especially to their own family!

    Hello all :)

    Remember all the stress over backdrop and order of service? Not needed. They were only tiny details.

    Our day was amazing. It started very annoying, as I had she drama from my family side and we forgot to burn the cd with the church songs. OH went back home on the morning of our wedding just to grab my laptop and some money my dad left at ours.
    My girls were in time to arrive to get ready but were soooo late to finish getting ready. I was the second one completely ready.

    From that point, it was completely perfect. I wouldn't change a thing. I was feeling like a princess, OH was looking amazing in his tailcoat <3

    Our service was great. It felt like marring him all over again. We exchanged our vows and rings, and it was completely magical.

    He doesn't dance much, but I've danced the whole night and every now and again he joined me. Food was great, we had looooads of spare alcohol, and still had money left from the bar tab.

    We couldn't be happier. At the moment, enjoying some well deserved time off in Lanzarote :)

    Thank you all for all your support over the past couple of years. It has been great.

    Omg, time is flying!

    I need some help regarding thank you cards. I've wrote most of them, but need a last one. This one is for a cousin of my husband that came to the wedding. I've badly spoke with him (literally change two to three words with him when talking to my husband), and he brought us a card (we haven't asked for gifts, but most guests gave us something). The thing is, I can't really find how to word the thank you card. I'm a bit lost now lol
