Awww your flowergirls sound so sweet!!

Yeah I am getting so excited, we picked up our BM dresses yesterday after their alterations which was good! I am getting a little bit over this whole waiting thing tho, lol. I know it's not far now but we have been engaged for 2 years, feels like forever! Lol.

Thanks for the Kiki k suggestion amber, I love that book but just don't think FH would like that... He's not really that sentimental... I may still do it tho cos I love it!! He's just so hard to buy for and he never wants anything. Men!! Maybe I will book us into a really nice restaurant or something, he loves his food!! :lol:

I had a wedding nightmare last night!!! It was a few days before the wedding and I was trying to contact suppliers and I had lost my book with all their details in it and couldn't find them on the Internet!! I woke up this morning and had to go check my folder! Lol.

I know what you mean about being sick of waiting! Just think how quickly the next couple of months will go though :)

(and very soon we can say "we're getting married this year"!!!)

Your FG's are so cute Amber. Love the dresses as well. That's what I'm after for my girls, only all white.

I can't wait to say I'm getting married this year as well. I'm sure the end is just going to fly by for you two, especially with Christmas and New Years.

I love ikea too - we got our candle holders from there, on sale, and I realised I wasn't charged enough when I got home, so they were an even bigger bargain!!

Have fun at seaworld - enjoy the school holidays :)

Hi girls!!! Wow!! Is all I can say!! 3 hours trying on dresses today and I am down to two!! One Maggie and one Ella dress! Not sure how I will decide now! Might have to take someone along with me to help. One is more plain and one is so different to what I thought I would have but I love it.
Actually now that I write that I know that's where my heart lies but not sure if it's too out of my thinking for me to pull off. Don't get me wrong it's not a crazy gown, probably quite tame to most but for me it's different.
Maybe after Christmas I will take my mum back with me and decide. I will post pics when I get home on Thursday and youcan tell me what you all think.

Hope your all had a great weekend xx

Hi Lovelies :)

Robby and Nep, OMG there is relaly not long for either of you now, soo excited for you both!! The time for both of you is going to fly!!

Manda, have a great time away and enjoy seaworld, i LOVE seaworld!! Could you take a pic of the polar bears and post here?? I have been twice and both times they have been asleep :( Whatever dress you choose you will be stunning in :)

Amber, OMG your FG are just the cutest!! LOVE the dresses :)

Well Den's surprise is officially going ahead at our wedding, i recieved all the paperwork in the mail today!! We have also decided on our centrepieces, love them but just means i will be busy with Den making them leading up to the wedding, will be fun though.

I went to the bon jovi concert last night and had a fantastic time!! Also never got sick at all last night which is unusal as im normally more sick of a night, i guess my Bubba's must take after mummy and love Bon Jovi :)

I was wondering what other people think of having baskets of disposable camera's at ceremony/reception or both?? We would like to have them but a few people have given negative comments which have turned us off a little. What do you ladies think?
Are you/Would you have them?

I better run, feeling really nauseous all of a sudden.

Love to you all xoxoxoxo

Manda- Good luck with pickings a dress. I'm going again in January and this time I am realy looking. I'm a bit worried because last time I went I wasn't even going to buy anything and got a bit overwhelmed and now I have to actually pick one and buy one, so I'm freaking out. Have fun at seaworld though.

Mrs 2 Be- So jelous you went to Bon Jovi. My cousin went and said it was awesome. As far as disposable cameras on table go. I think they would be heaps of fun, I would love to take some pics. I would jsut be worried about how they look on the table and also the quality of the picture you would get from them.

Nixella- Wow you look so organised. I can't see anything you missed. I will be away till Feb so when I get back it will only be 5.5 months till the wedding and i will still only have venue, phtotographer and celebrant. Hpoepfully a dress as well.

Yay Mrs JJ 2 Be

Man I suck. It has taken me about 3 weeks now and my STDs still aren't sent. I might try and blame it on FH though as it is all his family that I don't have addresses for. Plus now we are hainvg guest list issues as FH has some friends from high school that he decided not to invite and now wants to invite. I might just not send them STDs and we can decide if they get an invite later.

How frustrating. You don't suck though :e_hug:
In regards to your guest list issue, definately hold off sending them STD's and if you decide later you'd like them to come then you can always add them to the invitation list :) We had people we weren't sure on so didn't send STD's but they've been added to our invitation list after careful thought.

Sweeti, we were the same as nixella - a few people we weren't 100% sure about so held
off on the STD. We decided to invite them in the end, and they recently got their invitations and are very excited about coming :) we also had one couple (FH works with the husband) who we sent an STD to who we are no longer inviting....FH can't stand him and doesn't really care if he gets his knickers in a knot!

Nixella - you look really organised! Are you planning on having OOS?
