Thanks LMW and Mrs JJ. I can't wait to see everyone''s pics too, and to hear all about it.

To give you an idea of how organised I am... I booked my hairdresser yesterday! he he

I am not that fussed about everything being perfect and so most of the time I just have faith that it will all work out, and I keep reminding myself that as long as we are there and are married that's all that matters - the rest is a bonus. But every now and then i think aarrrghh!!!

I had my girlfriend over yesterday to work out the last item for the menu - chicken, caramelised onion and apricot tagine with spiced cous cous. She is a home ec. teacher and has worked in catering for years, and she said it was 'divine!'. :mrgreen: So, have cooked 5kg of the chicken last night, just another 7kg to go!

MIL actually offered to help last night. I don't want to be around her negativity but its nice that she offered.

Have finished my eldest daughter's dress and almost finished my youngests'. They look great! Not bad for upcycled clothing, that's for sure.

Am having my girlfriends and R's aunties etc. over on Sat to help make the flowers for our bouquets. Really looking forward to it.

Wow 5days to go. Can't believe it's all nearly here. I prob won't be on that much either in the next few days as I am in Bathurst now getting the farm ready for the big day. All mostly done just need to do little things like write names on the placecards and mow the grass.
Good luck to all the girls getting married this weekend and in Feb, looking forward to the photos. :)

GM- that chicken dish sounds delicious!! You are making my mouth water!!

Twiggy- 4 days now!! Very exciting. Enjoy this time Hun.

Ninbee- wow what a busy few weeks!! Enjoy absolutely everything. I know what you mean about feeling a little overwhelmed.

Afm- have nearly finished finalising all details with our suppliers. I still need to pick up our Bon Bon's and tie ribbon on them. Also need to find a gift for FH. We have had a few dramas with some family members this week it's funny how a wedding can bring out the worst in some people. All seems to be sorted now. I don't know about you ladies but I have so much wedding stuff around the house now!! We have a dedicated wedding room :lol:

:lol: i feel like my whole house is a 'dedicated wedding room' :lol: especially the kitchen!!

Shock of all shocks, MIL came over last night and actually seemed slightly excited! It was really nice actually. She gave FH and I a present... 2 champagne flutes and a bottle of perfume for me and aftershave for FH. A nice thought. MIL likes to give me perfume...but I don't wear it (because it contains petrochemicals and all that - I wear essential oils in a balm and sometimes some body shop oils), so I normally take it to Myer and swap it for an itunes voucher :oops: I love downloading my perfume songs! I know it's kinda wrong, but I thought I'd swap this perfume for some nice undies.

I am feeling quite organised, even though I'm not! :lol:

Spoke to the caterer last night and we are totally on the same page with everything there, which is great.

As far as cooking goes, I have to:
make the cupcakes
make a vegie tagine
put the meat filling into pastry for the moroccan puffs
make a spiced onion mix for the cous cous (not essential, but it is really yummy)

So not too much! Everything else is done :mrgreen:

I'd also like to make a bit more jam for the favours, but that's not essential either.

That sucks JJ but glad you've got your family sorted. It wouldn't be a wedding if there wasn't family drama.. so frustrating. They just don't seem to get it do they? And it's always the same people time after time!!

Wow Greensmonster - sounds like Masterchef in your house!! Very yummy! I would probably do the same as you if someone kept giving me perfume I didn't like. I'm like that with jewelery. Speaking of which I am still to get my and OH's perfume for the day.. must drop down and get that tomorrow. Was thinking the Ralph Lauren Romance set.

Good luck Twiggy.. I think it's going to be hot this weekend - hope the rain forecasted holds off for you as well, I think it will. Can't wait for photos as well..

My back-up shoes arrived today and thank god fit me like a glove. Finished work today. Was such a relief to get out of there. It's been nearly 14 months since my last holiday and I was really feeling it!!

Hi ladies,

Just thought i would drop by and say thanks for all the wonderful wishes, had a fantastic and beatuiful day. It was not as hot in Bathurst (where the wedding was) as it was in Syd. Thanks for all your support girls over the last year. I am now going on my honeymoon and won't be around for a while but ill be back soon, with photos hopefully :)
Good luck to all the other Feb girls if i don't manage to come back before your wedding day :)
