Today- Meeting with the photographer to chat about what sort of pics we are after etc, and to fine tune where/how etc.
Tonight- Spray tan
Tomorrow- Quiet day at home, packing for the honeymoon...getting small things organised (charging camera's, ironing FH's shirt and kid's suits etc). FH finishes up at work for 2 weeks.
Friday- Decorating the venue in the morning, having facial/manicure/eyebrow touchup in the afternoon.
Saturday "The Big Day"-
8:30- Picking up flowers from florist (some-one else could do it, but it's close to my house and I want to check them LOL), quickly ducking back to venue to scatter silk petals for a petal aisle (will get ruined if I do it the day before).
10:00- the lovely Gemma (hair and make-up) arrives. FH will be getting ready with me and our boys at home too, but is banned from certain areas once the make-up begins!
11:00- my parents will come over, to watch the boys while FH gets ready, and they're bringing nibblies and sandwiches.
12:00- my hair and make-up will be done, so I'll dress the boys, then hop into my dress.
12:30- FH, the boys and my mum will go to the venue and have a few "waiting pics" taken. Other guests (just our parents and siblings) will be arriving then too.
12:45- My transport gets to my house, and off Dad and I go!
12:50- Dad and I arrive at venue. Few pics
1:20- 2:00- Some quick family pics, then FH and I and the boys will go for our pictures, while the bar opens and canapes are served. (Ceremony, pictures and reception are all at the one venue, easy peasy!)
2:00- we'll be joined by a further 90 adults and 40 kids for a cocktail/afternoon tea reception...lots of drinking and snacking...a couple of speeches, cut the cake, do the bouquet etc. Gecko gang will entertain the kids.
5:00- reception formally ends, my friends pack up venue for me. We can straggle as long as we like saying goodbye etc, as we have the venue until midnight.
Sometime after that we head home with our boys, and collapse! Take-away chinese for dinner. Then on sunday my MIL will pick the boys up at 10:00 (they are staying at her house for 2 nights, then my Mum's for 3 nights ) then we head off on our honeymoon for 5 nights.
Phew. The end!
