we're having dinner with my future in laws tomorrow to discuss how they can help.
Also i emailed all vendors last night to confirm they were all still good and see what needed to be done before hand. Most nervous about the reception venue - the website has been updated and now features rules and additional costs that werent there when we booked. I cant find our booking form anywhere. I hope it's at work... Eek. Nervous for their reply.

Thanks for all the suggestions on shoes. Decided to sit on it a bit longer and hopefully Ill stumble across some soon. Thanks for the offer Curly but unfortunately they are the wrong size but gorgeous shoes.

Yay for getting on to those invites ladies. So glad thats all behind me, I cant even bare to think about OOS menus etc.

Started putting together my wedding favours and quickly realised that I majorly missed calculated how many jelly beans I was going to need to fill the jars and Im approx 8kilos short :haha: Oh well.... they look great though :)

Who here is having a church ceremony? I have no idea how to decorate the pews. I had my heart set on tissue paper pomanders which I was making but they are soo time consuming :( I've only made one and kinda gave up. So today I brought some material to make bows but they look like poo. So i dont know what to do humph

It's scary how fast it's approaching. We really need to get our bums into gear.

Oh definitely!

I am getting into all the timeflow stuff at the moment - full on! I am trying to reschedule our hair/makeup because I don't think I've left enough time to get dressed and have photos before we go. The last thing I want is to be rushing, especially when we have all morning free.

I think our next thing is to meet with the celebrant and start working on the vows/readings and also the actual running of the ceremony.

Making up invites at the moment, so exciting! FH is not generally too interested in the wedding finer details (LOL) but when he saw the invited he loved them! I'm so happy :)

I have had a couple of bad dreams lately! One was that I had forgotten to get my dress altered so it had no sleeves and didn't fit properly. The second was that I forgot to organise emergency supplies like panadol etc. Hah!

I haven't had any bad dreams lately that I can remember, but I woke up in pretty much a puddle of sweat at 4am this morning (so gross!). So maybe I have been having wedding nightmares that I can't remember. :lol:

My goal is to hopefully finish off invites this weekend too! Well at least the ones for people who have to travel to attend the wedding. :e_shifty:

Same! I have been playing around with them for a couple of weeks, finalising numbers, partners names etc. that I just want to get them all out ASAP! Still need to take one to the post office to weigh so I get the right postage so I can send off the interstate ones but apart from that its just assembling them all! Is anyone else having someone help them make up the invites? I have had lots of lovely people offer but I am just such a perfectionist I wouldn't want to offend anyone! LOL I would just prefer to do them all myself.

I thought I would share a couple of pics of our invites... The invite is on card with a pattern on the back, RSVP postcard and a smaller card with details on it, tied together with some twine...

Oooh are you having a fingerprint print? I love them! I wanted to get one but ended up going with a similar concept but you sign your name instead.

The signs look great! :heart:
