Good to see you again Jem :D Aw, your poor teeth....having your wisdom's out is the worst :( Oh I wish I had your dress problem LOL The swapping idea sounds like a great solution, especially if your heart is set on frangipani's.

We've got our rehearsal tomorrow 8O Just a quick one though, mainly so everyone knows where we should be standing etc if it's outdoors (how we've planned) or if we go indoors (bad weather)....and just to see which way I'll come in from, time the music etc. We won't be saying anything, leave that as a surprise for the day. Nothing else to report, it's all a bit boring here, just waiting around.

Hope your all having a lovely week :D

Great updates girls :D
Jem - hope you are feeling better now :heart:

Mama, go the rehearsal! - That makes it all seem very final and near :wink:

Got a few things sorted today: Had my first dress alterations meeting - not as painful as I thought it might be... It was good to put everything on together. The lady talked me into buying another hoop off them (as I thought she would :evil: - $130 dollars later it looks VERY similar to my ebay hoop - just a slightly different style). Never mind. It was really good to see the dress on in the right length and what it will look like with a bustle.

Also while out shopping we found Ferrero Rocher boxes on sale for $14.95 for 36 - perfect for our placecards - so I bought 3 boxes :wink: And took my mum shopping for her shoes.

I bought material for making a veil this w/end... my mum still hasn't got an outfit... (nor has FH) starting to worry about both!!!

time really is flying...

rehearsal will be fun.. and a little nerve-racking that it's getting closer!!

I love Ferrero's... what a great idea :)

I'm loving all these updates, everyone is getting busy now :D :bdance:

Sl- ohhh yum, I just love that idea!

Well, we had our rehearsal, which was great fun! My poor old Mum cried the whole time, even though we didn't say any of the vows or verses. Very happy tears though...she just said she knows how long I've been waiting for this, and how proud she is of the both of us. Then we all got teary, and spent the rest of the time in hysterical fits of laughter, or choking back sobs. Can't imagine what the actual day will be like :lol: We hit it off with our celebrant straight away, so it was just like having an old friend doing it...very calming, peaceful and happy :heart:

Found some gorgeous boots for my hens night, just looking for some earrings for that....and that's about it.

xoxo

oh no Chrisbins... how can we help...

my FH doesn't have a suit yet... I know time flies... but you do still have time... do you need special underwear? (I'm not... just want to be comfy)
What colour shoes do you need, do you know what style? can you look online - there are some great buys to be had.
Can your venue organise table decorations or the bonbonnieres? but again you can look online and get a lot of that stuff too...

oh and I haven't booked my honeymoon either...

there really is enough time...

Tee hee, I was going to do the same thing :lol:

Chrisbins- It's okay hun, you still have time...it might go by fast, but if you do things methodically, you should be able to get them done. Write a list of what needs to be done, from most important to least, and also what can be done at one time, then start to work your way through it. Like the shoes, shirt, jewellery and underwear...could you get someone to mind your son for a few hours so you can get all of these in one big hit? Can you wait until FH is back?
Do you have an idea of what you want for decos and bombonnierre? Try looking online and sourcing/ordering them, then picking them up (unless delivery is superfast and guaranteed). Have you booked someone to come to you to do hair and make-up....or are you going to a salon? Try make an appointment either way for a trial...they should be able to have a play around with your hair and suggest styles for you, then you can just choose....better yet if they come to you, get them to come during his naptime, or if you need to go to a salon, let them know you'll be bringing your DS along, and that you won't have much time- start gathering some pic of hairstyles and make-up that you like, to make it easier and quicker. Do you have family or friends who can pitch in to help babysit, or buy and pick things up for you?
Hope your Dad is going well.
Just take a deep breath, start at the top of your list, and work your way through. Let us know if you need anything :D
