    Right, so I am giving in and doing one of these bad boys!!!

    We are almost.... well I say almost-about 3 weeks away, from our 6 month count down.

    We have pretty much everything sorted

    Our Church deposit is paid, we just need to confirm how much it will be as we booked last year so they couldn't give us this years prices
    Our venue-deposit is paid, we have gone for a gorgeous old Stately home-I am so in love with it. It was the first venue we looked at and I knew we HAD to book it. Oh was sold as soon as he saw the ballroom, he turned to me and said ''it's like beauty and the beast''
    We have booked a Violinist for the wedding breakfast
    Band is booked for the evening
    We have two camper vans taking us to the Church and then onto the venue
    My bridesmaid is sorting the chair covers, which makes me a little nervous as we won't know until the week of the wedding whether she can get in the night before or not
    Bridesmaid dresses arrived this week, just need to wait for them to come so they can try them on.
    My dress is ordered and deposit paid... I am so in love with it
    Suits are ordered-we are hiring them
    Table centres are being done by the lady we are getting our Candy cart for the evening from
    Flowers are on order-we have gone artificial as I don't want to worry about having to get them in the morning or them wilting during the day
    I have my ring and we hopefully have oh's as well-it's his dads old one but it needs to be resized, we're still waiting on whether it can be done or not
    My friend is doing the cake
    My sister is the photographer
    I have my shoes, I went with irregular choice
    Our honeymoon is booked-two weeks gourmet all inclusive in Mexico, I cannot wait
    Hair and make-up is booked
    We have also booked digital camera's to go on the tables instead of disposables.


    We are in the process of sorting

    Gifts for people-we have glasses for the MOTB and MOTG but want some for others as well.
    Jewellery for the bridesmaids
    Favours, we have the boxes-waiting to see Cadbury hereos on a decent offer with a decent date on them


    I still need to book or order
    Pork pie wedding cake for the evening buffet
    bubbles to go on the tables
    hair accessories for myself (bridesmaids are having flower clips made by the lady who is doing the flowers)
    Church decorations and maybe something to go either side of the top table



    Have I forgotten anything?

    Oh our colour scheme is Cadbury purple and yellow-which is where the Cadbury caramel comes into it ;) originally we were just going to buy mini caramels and dairy milks for favours, but decided since we're having purple boxes tied up with yellow ribbon to put them in we might as well just buy the hereo's and put a mix in the boxes, people can swap them around if they get one's they don't like in them.

    I'd forgotten shoes for my fiancé and my little boy, fiancé bought his today though and we'll buy little one's closer to the time.


    We also have purple and yellow rose petals to scatter on the tables instead of little crystals.... I might buy some little crystals as well... or do you think that would be too much?

    I can't wait to see everything all come together :) should be arranging our 6 month meet with the venue soon. Not sure whether to contact them before to book it as soon as, I've read our contract and we need to pay the second deposit at 6 months (or within 10 days) the plan is to pay by cheque at the 6 month meeting-but will they count the payment as being made when they get the cheque or when it clears?

    It's scary to think that so much needs sorting/paying

    Haha-I know, I'm dreading May when things start really wanting paying. I think the honeymoon wants to be paid up by then so I'm going to transfer a big chunk of money and pay that off-along with other big things like the band.

    We need to decide if we are going to have the bells rung at the Church as well. I would love them, but they cost £140 which is quite a lot of money that could go towards something else....

    Personally I think its best to be organised that way IF you have forgotten anything its not so much of a big stress as all the other things are sorted. Love your colour scheme and the idea of the heroes as favours :)

    Thank you, we had a change of colour scheme early last year-I wanted emerald green and when we booked the suits they didn't have it, so we went for forest green as it was the closest to emerald. I started really worrying about how bridesmaid dresses would look and how it was a very dark colour and not really a summer one. I wanted to change it to yellow, but my fiancé wasn't keen on just yellow, so we settled on purple and yellow. I'm really glad now, I think the colours go lovely together.

    and I love the heroes as favours. It's going to be a good price but I think it's a fab idea as well. Also looking forward to seeing how the boxes look all tied up with the ribbon. We've also decided to double them up as place settings, so we'll be getting little gift tags to put on them :)

    Oh I forgot to mention as well, we had a lady from the ring company called **ooch back in December. We thought we were going to get the rings from them, but for various reasons didn't (I ended up getting a bridal set as my engagement ring had lost a stone and while we were out looking for wedding rings I fell in love with the set) but have since noticed other things that have made us glad we didn't order from them. Like the lady said we could not have other halfs ring resized due to the pattern, she failed to mention the ring he was looking at getting from them instead could not be resized due to the metal AND then when we took his ring (which has sentimental value to him) to be sold, we luckily explained to the man why we were selling and he told us that we would not get anywhere near what it was worth to sell it BUT he could see no reason why it could not be resized. So obviously we are very upset with them and glad we didn't go ahead and spend a lot of money getting our rings from them.


    Anyway, they offer free gifts for just having them round, I felt cheeky at first for emailing and saying we weren't ordering but wanted the gifts-but glad we did after we found out about his ring. The gifts arrived today :) so our bridesmaids have a necklace and a set of earrings each :) I only have two bridesmaids, old school friends of mine.

    I think the colour will work really well together. I'm dreading May next year when everything pretty much has to be paid for. I hope we've worked our budget out right lol.

    I know, I keep thinking that about the budget. I'm very very sure it has been worked out right though lol.

    If anything we should have more money then planned as my future in laws have kindly offered to pay for certain things, like the suits and a bit towards the venue fee's ect. My parents have also contributed but they told us straight away what we were getting so that's all been budgeted in with our money.

    I know, I was panicking the other day saying we hadn't really budgeted for honeymoon spending money.... but I'm hoping we'll have some left over and we will have that months wages as well really as won't be spending on much else. Also going to ask for money towards honeymoon if people want to give it as a wedding present, not expecting loads off people but every little helps.

    It's scary when you start adding it all up, we should do OK with our budget but as a back up my mum has said she'll lend us any shortfall if needed.
    What do the sm00ch freebies look like? Is it worth me booking an appointment, even though I have no intention of buying lol

    We're asking people for money towards our honeymoon as a wedding present too.

    I know it usually all comes together in the end, but we can't help panicking can we lol. It's such a big thing to organise and a lot of money to spend.

    We wouldn't dream of spending money like this on anything else lol-it's scary... but so exciting. I think if you can't splash out on your wedding and honeymoon, when can you?

    I think they're lovely. You could have best man cufflinks, which are literally just those cufflinks that say best man, a bracelet which if I remember rightly was like a pearly type beaded bracelet, stud earrings (like diamonds but obviously now lol) or little silver chains with hearts on, you can mix any 4 up as well. We thought about getting 4 of the necklaces and giving one each to our mums, but we didn't think they would actually really wear them, as both our mums are fussy with jewellery. So we thought earrings and a necklace for the bridesmaids. I'd say it's probably worth booking for the freebies, you never know you might even find some rings...

    I've also been sorting presents for my fiancé today.

    He was originally going to just get a pocket watch...

    But he is being spoilt, I have got him a sword shaped letter opener (bit of a personal joke between us and friends since before we got engaged) I was going to just give him that at the wedding breakfast and the pocket watch (which I haven't bought yet as struggling to find the right one) in the morning. But I have been thinking more about a grooms box and I quite like the idea, so I am going to put the pocket watch and a few other little silly things in there, like a pack of mints and a miniature whiskey... I also ordered him a book of ''don't for husbands'' to go in there.


    It's a little awkward at the moment though, as it's his birthday next month so I'm trying to sort his presents for that too. So far he has a body shop set, a jumper (which I ordered on boxing day and then yesterday he pointed it out in the shop so that was fab), I've ordered him the wit and wisdom of Tyrion Lannister... I had ordered him a waistcoat but got an email saying it was out of stock :/ so that's a bit rubbish. Not sure what else to get him for his Birthday...

    Well wedding is going on hold for a while, I need to try and get my head around my maths assignment. I'm dreading June when I have my exams.... I've done okay so far in my assignments but this one really seems to have upped the game and I'm not convinced I'll manage to pass the exam at the end of the year if this is anything to go by :/

    Love the colours together and the heroes for favours! That's really clever, I wouldn't hve thought of it :)

    We are putting a couple of mini creme eggs in ours along with a couple of other little sweets to tie in the Easter element lol. Other thn that, you'd forget it was Easter!

    That's a cute idea :)

    We weren't sure whether people would think the heroes were a bit cheap-but everyone (well most people) love Cadbury chocolate and it fits our colour scheme. It's a lot more us then just having purple foiled wrapped chocolates as well.


    I'm glad I have a diary, it's nice to have somewhere just to pop everything down when I think of it lol

    I had a quick look through one of my drawers today and found a couple of bits which can go in my fiancé's scrapbook. There's a guide to Bruges (we went last year as a pre-wedding mini moon) the dog has chewed the cover but I can cut some of the pictures out and something else.... I've gone blank and can't remember what it was lol.


    Also found my little boys wrist tag from the hospital when he was born <3

    We also had those photo's done exactly one year before the wedding-which was nice... although it seems like ages ago-can't believe we have more then that time until the actual wedding still.... hoping it's goes quickly once we get into spring and out of this horrible cold weather. We're a lot busier in the warmer months as well, so that will keep us occupied.

    I want to order our bridesmaid glasses.... but don't know whether to do them this month or wait until next month. This month we still have oh's birthday to pay for and a half term, whereas next months pay day comes after that...

    Just ordered some hair pieces, not sure if they'll be any good but we shall see. I've ordered a small tiara and something to go in the back of my hair, not sure if I'll use both or even one of them... but thought I might as well get them as they were on a good deal. I can take them to my hair trial and play about and see what we all prefer.

    I do def want to wear a veil, but obviously that will come out after having some photo's in it.

    If we have ours done in June then that will be 1 year until our wedding :)

    I spoke to the lady at the bridal shop where I'm getting my dress and told her I've seen a headpiece by ivory & co that I love and she's ordering it in for me so it will be there when I go back in March. I'm also having a veil but there are 2 I like and I need to decide which one I want. Will be trying them both on again with the dress and headpiece in March so will decide then :)

    That's a fab idea, I took a risk with my veil, after spending way over budget on my dress I saw a veil for £10 on ebay... bought it thinking if it was rubbish I had only lost £10 and it was lovely. I still haven't tried it on with my dress though, so will make sure I take it with me when I have my first fitting to make sure it matches.

    I think it's a lovely thing to mark the one year before your wedding thing, we're planning for so long it's a big mile stone if you book your wedding more than a year in advance.

    Hmmm-considering what to get oh for the wedding day

    The plan was, scrap book (which he would possibly get the night before) with pictures and other bits in which are meaninful to the two of us and our relationship.

    Then a groomsbox for the morning with a miniature of whiskey, some mints, a book on don'ts for husbands, personalised boxers, possibly socks and a pocket watch and anything else I find along the way

    Then during the speeches I have a sword shaped letter opener to give to him


    Now I'm really unsure as I have now seen a replica of the masters pocket watch from doctor who, he loves doctor who, especially the 10th doctor and we both love the master, so it seems appropriate, however I was thinking of getting him an engraved pocket watch and I don't think there is anywhere that can be engraved :/

    I'm going to do a groom's box too. Gonna order the box next pay day then every now and then buy something for it, maybe every couple of months. I will be staying at my parents the night before the wedding so I will leave it on our bed with a letter :)

    I'm not going to use an actual grooms box.... the one's I've seen are WAYY too expensive, when really they're just gift boxes. I'll just buy a nice gift box from [email protected] and fill that, might even buy a gift bag if I struggle to find the right box.

    I'm swaying more towards the masters pocket watch as well.... still unsure as would like it personalised, but I'm putting together the scrap book and although it's not actually personalised, it's personal too us.

    Oh and the glasses we are getting for us and the bridesmaids are personalised.

    I'm so tempted-I'm so excited about them haha, it is a little sad.


    If I'm not careful though I'll have everything ordered and nothing to sort closer to the time. Time is dragging as it is waiting for this cold weather to hurry up and go away

    That's a good thing.. you can have a rest, reflect on everything you've managed to get sorted and have an easy ride from there on in!! :) x

    Haha-maybe, I like to keep busy though.

    Although I suppose there is always something to do, I'm even at the point I'm wishing we booked earlier in the Summer holidays as we have 3 weeks to wait after breaking up from school to the wedding... oh says that's a good thing but I am not completely convinced ;)

    I think I'll be better once winter is over with, when the weathers nicer it will feel like we are actually getting married this year...whereas with the weather like this it still feels like ages away. Although I am hoping for plenty of snow tonight so we can have a snow day tomorrow ;)

    Not really wedding related, but just found out one of my exams is completely multiple choice :( it's the maths one as well, which is really annoying as it means no marks for working out. Balls.


    On the plus side, my second exam (which marks the end of the study year for me) is exactly 2 months before the wedding!!!!

    I don't know what to do :/


    I think I've pretty much decided I want to ask my friend to be a third bridesmaid. However, my other two bridesmaids have been bridesmaids since we got engaged. They both live away from me and I wasn't as close to this other friend then..... well I wasn't close at all to be honest-we worked together but never spent any time outside of work together. Since then we have started going out and I would say she is one of my closest friend, def my closest friend who lives in the area.


    However, I don't want to upset my other bridesmaids and don't know if my fiancé will agree to it either, as he will think of the cost :/

    I spoke to my fiancé about it earlier and he straight away said yes as she is now one of my best friends. He just said about making sure we can get the extra bits for her that we only have two of, like the necklaces and earrings, but when I said I'd already found a similar necklace he said the earrings would be easy to find :)

    I managed to speak to one of my bridesmaids and she is happy with whatever I decide, I haven't got hold of the other one to ask her yet, but I am going to try and ask my friend when we go for food or something one day so it's a bit more special, so I have time to ask her before that happens.

    Been doing a lot of shopping around for honeymoon clothes lately.

    I need to dig out what I already have, but was hoping to hold off until May-ish... looks like I might be doing it before as I can't stop looking haha.

    So happy, we found usher aftershave online... :D

    I saw it a while back and thought it would be a good joke present for the ushers, but then couldn't find it again-so we've bought some. Just a silly thing to go in their gift bags, and hopefully it will smell nice as well ;)

    Also my bridesmaids have been messaging me about my hen, I'm going to get a letter about a week before with a list of things I may or may not need, then I will find out the night before what is actually happening. I am so excited!!!! Bring on May

    Both my ladies have said they don't mind me asking my third friend.... we're going shopping and for lunch next Saturday so I'm going to try and hold off and ask her then.

    I'm not completely convinced she'll say yes, so a bit nervous. But I don't mind either way, if she doesn't feel comfortable and says no at least I asked her, whereas if she want to then that's great :)

    That's great that no one has an issue with it. Fingers crossed she says yes, I bet she will x
