Is anyone else stressing abit? I feel like I have so much to do and not enough time to do it in. My spray tan trial was ick. I don't know if she has just done it too dark or it's the product itself. I don't want to get another one really before march but I'm definitely not getting one done without a trial. I wish my sister could do it for me but she wouldn't be able to do it until the day before the wedding. She's the only I trust to do it right though!


I've never had one but apparently St Tropez products are the best... I'm tossing up whether to have a spray tan.. I'm about to embark on a course of microdermabrasion facials before the wedding... and just sticking to a strict skincare routine etc... I'm reading this amazing book at the moment that someone at work lent me - Amazing Face by Zoe Foster... It has the best skincare and makeup tips ever...

I fluctuate between feeling completely in control to holy hell I don't have nearly enough time! I keep looking at my list and it's quite daunting! These next months are even worse, got the pre-wedding photos, boudoir photos, bridal shower, hens night and now two engagement parties! My brother and sister both got engaged over Christmas and I've been volunteered to make their invites! Not happening but just all the events and trying to fit it around the thousand things I still have to make, it really is quite stressful. Just have to keep reminding myself it will be worth it in the long run!

Aww. Sad!

Hi Jessie,

Thank you for patience while we considered your request.

We have decided that it would be best to maintain the rules of the month/year threads by closing it on Sunday. While we respect that members may feel more comfortable posting in the 2012 thread, we would like to encourage brides getting married in the same month to foster similar relationships that were developed in the year thread.

Thank you for your understanding.

Kind Regards

The Mod Team


Oh well, we'll just have to pop into each others thread to keep everyone company. I bet the month threads will pick up more once this thread is closed anyways. Just thought I'd let you guys know.

TBH its a load of crap, you cant force ppl so socialise with each other. I think you can create private groups on fb so maybe we can all do that?
This is the only thread and the show and tell sometimes that I post in just to keep in touch with you ladies.

I had my dress fitting yesterday, it went better than expected. Have some minor alterations to be done so my next fitting is next Wednesday and I will take some ppics. I was shocked at how white it was :lol:

I am not stressed, everything is done that needs to be.

Jessie I have spray tans done all the time, and never had a problem. The best ones are the ones that set in 2 hours so you can shower after that time to get rid of the excess and then you know what it will look like.
It all depends on where you go.

I've had a few done, usually for special things and I love the way my sister does them. I might have one more trial ASAP and get her do it abit lighter and see how that goes. If it's no good, I'll get my sister to do it the day before and just suck it up if it rubs on the dress. At least I know the stuff she uses comes out so I'm confident it would come out of my dress.

Also my photographer is having a look around for me for a good one on the coast so if she finds someone soon I'll do a trial with them. She's so lovely.

Jade, that's so exciting! Do you love your dress? I am super excited to see photos from your day, I can't believe how quick it's coming! When do you guys leave for Bali?

Ladies I will start the facebook group for us. It will be a closed group (I will need to accept you to become a member). I think its stupid that sunday is our last day for 2012 brides. I hope you will all find the group on facebook and drop in regularly. If we are already friends on facebook I will send you the link....(I just create it - Its called "2012 Brides -Wedding Central")

Sorry Jess, I have no idea about spray tans..I hope you find something that is suitable!

Big time stressing at the moment! My celebrant just called to cancel because of family dramas! He's flying overseas the week before our wedding and not returning until end of April!!!
So now I'm just wondering, does the stress get less as the date gets closer or should I settle in for a rough ride over the next couple of months?

Bummer - I am also annoyed that they are closing this thread! I don't post heaps but I do like checking up on everyone. We should all frequent the 'month' threads and post throughout them all - that will keep the relationships going! :twisted:

As a lot of you know I like to keep as anonymous as possible on the net given my work etc so I won't join the Facebook group :)

More bridal party issues :( So close to the wedding too.
My partners younger brother is not even going to my partners bucks because apparently he has no money, even though he earns the same as me and is in a share house with no car (except a crappy drift car which is now back at our house :evil: ) So pissed off right now, we cant even garantee he is going to be a grooms man on the day. To make matters worse their mum bitches about his brother behind his back and now she is defending him, it's literally going from one thing to another.

Sorry for the vent, I am just so pissed off right now :( and worried, I have no idea what is going to happen on the day and there is nothing I can do about it

Ladies, I just wanted to wish you all a happy new year, I'm currently 30 mins from Loch Sport and dying for a swim

I'll miss this thread, and your company however I understand why the mods make tough decisions - it ensures the forums remain accessible to new brides and wedding focused - the I-do forums are a perfect example of what happens without good mods

See you in the month threads :)
