Oooh, I'm so excited - just got an email from my third cousin who has created a black and white painting for us. This will be the card that is attached to a gift bag filled with home made goodies for each group of guests - it'll say thanks for coming and give details of the time and the location of the ceremony (which up till then will have been a secret).

It has me and DP at the front with our daughters and dog next to us

And here is the actual location

I am stoked!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

greensmonster, that is such a GREAT painting! What a wonderful idea!! I love it!!

There are some totally naughty photos circulating around from my hens night on the weekend - was a ball!! Now I get to do it all again on this weekend with my Sister-in-law to be!! :twisted:

It's nice to be on the countdown for the last few weeks till the wedding.. anyone feeling stressed at all?? I get occassional stress moments which is really when I can't seem to get husband to be to do the little jobs I've given him!!

I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone's weddings come together!

lovemywei- I am starting to stress a bit now too. I get butterflies when I think about the big day!

It is exactly 1 month for me to go today!!

I have tomorrow off work so FH and I are going to meet with our photographer for the last time before the wedding. He is really nice and I am looking forward to seeing him again. My MC has also been amazing this last month, he rings me all the time to check things and discuss his ideas :) He will do a great job.

I honestly am so excited to see all of the Feb Brides weddings come together!! :heart:

I missed it for ysterday but happy 1 month JJ!!! It's going to fly.. How did your photographer meet go?

We've hit a bit of a (potential) bump for our big day. One of Allan's distant relatives is apparently up on some pretty nasty criminal charges which has just started. I've had numerous people ring me to tell me that they would like him not to be there. We got one of Allan's cousins to ring and apparently he has said he has every right to be there. So I have a sinking feeliing if he turns up there is going to be a bit of drama. We won't be setting a seat for him at the reception. I just hope that he comes to his senses and doesn't come. Whilst I agree that he has a right to be there, with all the family tension it's best that he doesn't come.

I need to get cracking on the final touches.. I've been on night shift this week and everything has gone into limbo!! UGH!!!

Oh, LMW that sounds a bit stressful... hope he doesn't come. He doesn't actually 'have a right to be there' really IMO... and if you'd prefer he didn't come that's up to you.

I am mostly calm, but every now and then thinkings SH!T!!!!!!! not long to go and I have heaps to do.

According to DP, the beer is paid for, the music is done... what more is there to do!!?? :lol:

My dress is nearly finished. Will post a pic when it's done. Its very plain, but I like it.

Calm and peaceful lead-up to wedding vibes to you all, lovely brides!! :)

LMW- how stressful! Not what you need at all right now. I really hope he doesn't turn up, no need for drama on your Big day :) Night shift is the worst! What do you do?

GM- Your FH sounds just like mine! As long as the beer an music is done that's all that matters!! Little does he know I will have him tying bows tomorrow night hehehe

My meeting with the photographer went really well. He is so funny and made us feel so comfortable (which is why we booked him). He was amazed at how relaxed we were!! :lol: I will be so happy to see our Pros after the big day.

Paid off the reception and photographer this week!! :mrgreen:

Hi, I just want to wish you all good luck from a February 10 bride. I remember this time last year one of the February 09 brides wished us luck in the thread and I thought wow, I can't imagine the wedding being over, let alone a year ago - and now here I am passing the luck on to all of you!

Cherish every moment, it goes by so fast! I hope you all have the wonderful weddings of your dreams - and you can never have too many photos :D

How exciting Amanda!!

I'm going good with our plans. 26days to go!

I've nearly finished confirming everyone and sorting out payments. We have our flowergirl alterations booked in for tonight.

I'll organise my hair to be coloured, nails done and massage when I am on holidays. Only 12 actual days of work left!!! :)
