I know what you mean... I have foxtel and have been checking the 28 day rain chart since the 13th was visable and it changes all the time.
I am just hoping the showers are earlier than 4pm and its warmish so we can use the gardens for our ceremony and during the reception...Fingers crossed :D

Had a little meltdown today!

I was getting plucked, waxed and coloured and I suddenly realised - I am doing this all for our WEDDING next weekend.

Now I get brazillians all the time and my hair gets coloured every 2.5mths so this was nothing new - except it was in preparation for our WEDDING NEXT WEEKEND!

I got quite tight in the chest and nervous thinking about everyone looking at me as I profess my love for FH - it really knocked me for a six! the getting married part doesn't worry me - thats fine, its just the act of standing there infront of my family and friends that freaks me!

Luckly when FH came to pick me up I talked it over with him and he welcomed me nervousness and stressing out a bit as he said he's been there for a couple of days! He is so nervous about giving a speech. bless.

Just had a glass of wine and a hot bath and I'm all good again!!

My last day of work too! As I will not be around for the next 2 weeks, GOOD LUCK to all of you lovely ladies and I will see you on the other side!! :mrgreen:
I haven't had any freak out's yet, I still can't quite wrap my head around it that we're finally getting married. My MOH burst into tears the other day at her boyfriend's birthday party, and said "OMG my little girls getting married!" and I just looked at her sideways and gave her a hug! (Bless her little cotton socks!!) :heart:

I still need to:
Get a flat pair of shoes for the reception (only decided a couple of days ago - will need to do next week)
Get FH a ring (since his custom ordered and paid for ring isn't going to be here in time - will need to do next week)
Pay for BM dress alterations (Sunday - when I pick one of the dresses up)
Pick my dress up (Tuesday)
Tan & thinning hair (today)
Waiting for ceremony draft from celebrate (he said he's email me on Sunday as he's performing weddings until then)
Get boys suits altered (my Grandma's doing it when she gets over here)
Finish downloading songs & put onto iPod ready to go
Decorate reception area (can't do until Friday night, and Saturday morning)
Get my nails done (a couple of days before the wedding)

That's everything I can think of. It didn't seem like that much in my head, but it's spaced out over the next week so it won't actually be that stressful!
I can't wait to get back here and see how everyone's big day went! Thank you all for your help over the last few months, and good luck to everyone! :heart: :heart:

So jealous too! I have 10 days to go and it is going to be a bedlam 10 days. :roll:

Good luck Leana!!!!!!!

Confirmed numbers, so have put together seating chart so have sent to invitation lady to get made. Just need to organise play list for the DJ. I plan on putting the bonbonniere together the week of the day and have organised a ceremony run through the afternoon before the wedding with just the bridal party, just so we know where to stand etc, check where the sun is.
And have ordered through Subway a sandwich platter to be delievered to us the morning of the wedding so we all eat something.

I had one of bridesmaids at home yesterday for her final fitting and she was getting all anxious and flustered about the wedding. I found myself reassuring her that it was going to be okay! :lol: talk about role reversal

i rang not long after making that other post..the girl had to ring me back because her mum is the one that deals with all the orders and she was at home. im now being told that the dress should be here by the end of the week but when i said we were told it would be here by today and that my MOH and myself are booked in for alterations on wednesday she said she'd chase it up and call me back. havent heard back yet and its past closing time :twisted:

JESS! My heart goes out to you every time I read about your dress dramas!

I hope you do name and shame the dress place you got it from. Seriously, its ridiculous how long its taken for your dress and the lack of service you have been getting is terrible.

To all the Nov 6's hope your day was AMAZING

and to all us Nov 13 - only 5 more days!!
