Well three days out and I've decided that the wishing well that I've borrowed from a friend really isn't to my tastes at all. Sigh. Thinking about getting a box and covering it with some pretty paper... Or do I just stick with the ugly well? I probably won't notice it on the day any way... Any other ideas?

chell the pics are gorgoues. can not wait to see more.

amy - we used an ipod for our ceremony/reception and had Dh brother in charge of pressing the buttons,
we ran thru everything with him a few days before and like miss donz had a sheet with strict instructions and listings
of each song and when it was to be played -

ie. playlist 1 - pre-mingle awaiting the bride music
playlist 2- processional - start when bride arrives at start of ceremony
playlist 3 - signing songs -
etc, etc.

it worked really well - our celebrant did not want to be in charge of music and she had others things to get thru,
like marrying us :D , but we used her Pa system to run the songs thru.

Oh Chell, those pics are beautiful!

As far as the music goes, yeah I gave the DJ a list with track name, length and comments - I'm hoping he was just confused because he didn't have his glasses and couldn't read it properly! Will ask the celebrant tonight about doing it anyway. I didn't know who else to ask, I had to do the music for my cousin's wedding and it was a bit stressful and I didn't get to really pay attention to/enjoy the ceremony cause I was too focused on getting the music right!

2 sleeps! I can't believe it! And I'm finally getting used to typing with my long nails...

All the best to the brides getting married this weekend. I had a ball at my weddding. Honestly, don't stress the small stuff. you really don't notice it. I didn't.

Gypsy, I had Kate as my photographer, and she is fantastic. I was slightly concern because of some comments i read on there, but i didnt' need to be. she is great and nothing is too much trouble for her. I felt like i could really relax and enjoy the day because she was taking charge of what is happening.

Hey thanks bugs! I had a few concerns too but when we met with her this week I forgot all about it. I'm looking forward to seeing her in action! Have you got your online album? I seem to remember her saying she gets that up pretty quick?

We had our rehearsal tonight, I cried! He didn't even read through the ceremony, it was just the walking in and standing facing each other and I lost it! Dammit! The celebrant is going to do the music. Phew!

I can't believe tomorrow is the day before the wedding!!!

It's 4:50 am and I can't sleep!! I can get to sleep ok but the last few nights I've been waking and I'm finding it REALLY hard to get back to sleep. :roll: Should I take something to help tonight girls???

Today: I'm getting a pedicure and something done to my nails, probably just a tidy up and a clear coat. Plan on hanging out with my MOH, need to start packing for the honeymoon a bit, and football tonight with dad!!

Do you ever take anything for sleeping normally? I took an over the counter sleeping tablet once, I was getting up at 4 for work so I took it at about 8pm, I was screwed the entire next day. Nearly fell asleep driving and by the afternoon had a hangover! So I wouldn't recommend it!

There's a rescue remedy especially for sleeping, maybe that would help?

definitley do not take anything - especially if your not use to it. I took half a sleeping pill once due to the same problem
and the next day - i was so out of it, also nearly crashed the car on the way to work and stuffed so many things up cause i
could not concentrate. You do not want to feel like that on the wedding day.

my mc actually gave me a good way to get back to sleep. Concentrate on your heart beat or deep breathing, counting
it ( sort of like counting sheep) and then try and slow it down. Next thing your in la la land asleep :D

Hey girls,

First off, congrats to all the girls who got married last weekend and this. Hopefully everything went well for everyone and your day was all you dreamed it would be!

Second, our celebrant is looking after the marriage license request from bdm for us. She will submit the application I've completed with all the signed legal docs from the ceremony. It's easier to do it this was as she already has seen formal id (birth cert's, etc) from dh and I.

Next, I'm married! Our day was simply beautiful. The rain held off until about 30 seconds after we entered our reception. It then rained constantly all night. Our only drama was one of the dj's speakers blew during the reception and didn't have a replacement. Oh well, it mean't everyone was able to talk without yelling! Waiting on our pro pics to come back but here are a few some relatives took on the day.
