    Hi ladies, so after a pierod of calm and not really doing much wedding planning, it has all come at once! So tomorrow I have my 1st dress fitting, which I am slightly nervous about as I knoe I have but a bit of weight on since I was Measured but not enough to go up a dress size so u should be fine.. Them on friday we are giving notice :). We have left it a bit late to do that but we just kept on forgetting we are doing it in plenty of time still so it's ok. Saturday we have a meeting at the venue to discuss final numbers ect. Then Sunday we have a meeting with our photographer! So lots going on all at once!
    Next on our list will be favours and cake! We are going our tiers from M&$ so don't meet to rush in to that too much. Then it's just a cace of sitting and waiting for final payments to be due! It will be the 2nd of August befor I know it lol! Xx

    You find that you have a lull, then in the run up it gets crazy again.

    Aww I'm in the same boat 9 weeks on Saturday till we say I do week. It's got very busy! Had a major problem with the venue last week when they turned round and said "you do realise that red wine isn't allowed in the castle" I.e where we are having the whole wedding! uhhhhh no that's we went out and brought all our red and white wine for the wedding and have over 100 bottle of red, nightmare negotiations at present! Oh well the stress it's helping with the weight loss, gone from 9st 13 to 9st since January so almost a stone whoop so feel on track. Good Job as I had a major panic 3 weeks back and changed my mind about my dress and brought a whole new one (still having to pay for my original which arrived in the shop with dirt all over it) new dress doesn't arrive till the 6th July oops 4 weeks before the wedding! Lol I'm calling it the last two month crazies and trying to keep laughing at most things. We are too getting our cake from [email protected] hehe you just reminded me I need to order xxx

    It's just all come at once! RebeccaS987- don't worry I will remind you, I will message you when I order mine lol! It's defiantly the running up for the August brides, I just can't believe how quickly it's come around.
    I had my 1st dress fiitting today, when I first saw it it didn't look like a remembered! So was a little worried to start with, but once I was finally in the dress (it takes ages to do up a corset back lol!) I fell in love with it all over again :). The only silghtly worry was I tried it on with out a bra and I didn't feel that confident... I was supported but I am rather 'top heavy' (32 E). I just felt as if I needed a bit more support so will be looking for a strapless backless supporting bra if that even exist! Xx

    can they not sew cups into it?
    im only small but if I feel I need one then I will ask if they can sew them in so that I don't have to worry about pulling it up.

    Hehe thank you Clair :) gosh most def the run up, it's all go! Just signed off on order of service menu and now onto final details for church. Hen weekend in Yorkshire two weeks on Friday and York races whoop!

    Oooooooo I wish I had the problem, I'm only a 32 A and my bridal shop suggested I don't wear a bra ha prob because there's nothing to fill! I got an amazing bra from eTam lingerie! They aren't on the highstreet anymore but now they now have lingerie shops in France etc and they are amazing! They do this strapless stick on bra but not like the usual ones, it's great. Stays on and doesn't make you sweaty lol.

    When are you printing table plan? So excited to get mine done but don't know if too early xxx

    Rebecca- having a big bust is not all it's cracked up to be believe me! They can sew cups in to it but with my size I need to get something that will really support me also the amount it costs to sew cups in, I might as well buy a bra and use it with different outfits lol.
    Table plan... I have the final meeting with the vene on sat so am going to ask for a template them, my mum is on holiday next week so I think we will do it when she gets back. My hen not is the last weekend in June, I am not sure if you saw my post a few weeks ago about it? They orgniesed a cocktail making session even though I don't drink! I have spoke to mum about it and she has given me a plan of the weekend and it will be a good weekend I will just make moctales! Xx

    Yes def agree, may as well get something you can wear again as summers coming and honeymoon whoop and bound to need a nice strapless bra :)

    Fab might do mine over next few weeks once the venue is sorted, we have one had one meeting since we booked it, all a bit of a nightmare really but a new wedding planner joined a few weeks back who is amazing and so were a lot more confident, bless her she's having to deal with a lot of things that have gone wrong that weren't her fault.

    Oh no didn't see that, gosh so are they still doing the cocktail making? I am almost totally off drink, I think since dec I can count on my hands how many times I have drank. I just want to get my skin better and also feel detox and healthy. It's hard as a lot of people don't understand that. I slightly worried about my hen as I'm not used to alcohol now so it goes straight to my head oops! Have said to MOH on the Friday night before the races on the sat if I can have. Fairly soba night or the races will be we write off xxx

    I'm having a week off from planning this week as I'm visiting my parents however I've only got little things to do now like sorting the favours and sweet table bits out. Obviously I've got appointments coming up but I feel I must be missing something as I feel so relaxed about it all.

    Clair I wish you luck with finding a backless strapless bra. I'm a 34 e/f and found it impossible to find anything any good. Luckily once my dress was taken In it holds and supports me enough without one. Before my fitting I'd searched everywhere for a decent one but had no luck. X

    It's funny how people just don't get the whole not drinking thing! As soon as I tell people I dont drink I get some funny looks lol! I had a chat to my mum today about the hen weekend. She said that she didn't relise I didn't drink at all she thought that I just wasn't too keen on drinking so she thought that I may enjoy mixing coctales to drink! I Know that it was my sisters idea (she likes a drink) and my mum would of just gone along with it. Oh well I am determined to have a good time and enjoy spending time with family and friends.
    Mrs hurren- I really hope I find a decent bra. I'm sure there has been posts on hear befor about it so I will surch for it as see what people have recommended. Xx
