Re: I'm not enjoying planning my wedding.

my first piece of advice is talk to your fh about what the two of you want and please yourselves and no one else. Secondly focus on what you'd love about the wedding planning i.e. dress hunting, shoe hunting etc and do some of this to get your excitement back.

Re: April 2013

eek!!! 12 days! I know! i'm starting to panic (well actually i've been nervous for a while). I'm sure i've forgotten something/someone and the normal last minute "sorry I'm cutting my toe nails that day and can't make it" have started to surface, which is p*&sing me off completely. I'...

Re: How did you involve your mum

for my first wedding, mum did the lot, I basically got dressed and showed up (wish I hadn't showed up now lol), this time around mum has passed but i'm involving my fmil as much as I can. Just calling her and giving her updates, showing her dress (well she is the one altering it), shoes, jewellry etc.

Re: would you find this rude?

thanks guys - i'm not posting the status, or anything else about it. FH seems ok, and i've been avoiding most wedding talk for the past 24 hours. I've planned for us to go out next weekend, to something completely non-wedding just to have a "day off" from it all. Thanks for all the advice :)

Hi All In light of my fh disasterous bucks day today - see vent over little things - i'm starting to worry about no shows to our wedding, both from his side and mine. I was wondering if anyone would do this, or is it too rude. I'm thinking of putting up on facebook - so most people coming can see it...

Re: Children at Weddings

I know where you're coming from h-kate. There are children I would like to have at my wedding and others that well are just a bit bratty to be honest. I know it sounds unfair, but lets face it, some kids are great to be around and some aren't. We have said no kids, however we have one that we wanted...

Re: Given save the dates - but no longer invited

I wouldn't say anything to them - just sounds like you're rubbing it in if you do. I'd definately tell FMIL just in case she gets a call from them asking why. Apart from that - forget they exist, if she's so rude, you don't want them at your wedding.

Re: low iron levels

If you're not sure about the diagnosis, I would suggest going back to the dr or getting a second opinion.

Re: how do you choose shoes and other bits to match dress?

I bought the shoes first - i'm a shoe kinda girl lol. When I found THE dress, I took the shoes with me to try it on and they went perfectly. Maybe you could take a pic of the dress with you or try your dress on with different types of shoes you have at home i.e. a pair of flats, strappy heals, peep ...

Re: Worst or most stressful part of organising a wedding?

For me, it was trying to get Mr snoopkat to understand that things need to be done at a certain time. He seems to think that he can just wing it and everything will be fine. I've since adopted a new policy - if it doesn't affect me personally on the wedding day, then it's not my problem and I'm not...

Re: Worst or most stressful part of organising a wedding?

i'm stressing at the moment, cause we've sort of budgeted for 75 people but we've invited 109 ahhhhhhhhh. I must admit i've been a little sneaky and kept some invites from going out until we start getting some "no" 's back. I know some people won't or can't travel and others will have holi...

Re: I've got my dress and I feel blah

I did get a pic in it last time I tried it on and I loved it, just don't know why I didn't get the same feeling this time. Maybe it was skinny minny next to me, last time I was the only person in the shop and I had BFF there telling me how good it looked. I know it will be ok on the day, just cranky...
