I hear you Cuffs!

Un-fricking-believeable that she wouldn't tell you - THE BRIDE?!!! HELLLOOOOOOO!!!!!

We had similar this week - people who were coming, then weren't because of their sprog, then maybe, then just left us hanging (when we had to confirm final numbers that very day). The thing that got me was these people got married last year, so they should know the rules better than anyone!

Ditch 'em!

Ugghhh my Mum just called the function place and they said that we need to have a minimum of 150 adults (Which we didn't think was as set in stone as it now appears to be). And apparently she wasn't very nice about it. We have 143 adults and 15 kids, plus nearly $1000 worth of canapes and drinks. WTF?? FH made the good suggestion of having no canapes or pre-dinner bar tab, then invite those extra 7 adults, so then they'll be about $300 behind what they're making now, but alas, I feel bad doing that because its already gone off on the invites.

Starting to stress...

Woohoo I am done.

The day was perfect, well except when I was attached by Green Ants, but hey if that's the only drama of the day I am so happy!

Thank you all for your support and help over the last 12 months. Good luck with all your weddings for the rest of the month ladies. :heart:

Don't stress Cuffs - so you can't pay for the extra 7 without them being there? What a croc :(

Thanks ladies, no photos as yet - I only have a few from my aunt on my work computer so I will post them 2moro for you all to have a little looksee.

I definately wasn't smiling when i had a hundred ants up my legs and stuck in the tulle of my dress with my BM's trying to get them all off of me, but hey it's so funny now, especially when i think of the look on the GM faces.

Cuff's don't stress huni, at the end of the day it will be the most perfect day of your life.

:lol: at least its funny now finally, did you get photos of that too?

I'm trying not to stress out, we got a lot of little things done last night, and because my Mum and sister are both on holidays right now (school holidays) they can do a lot of stuff next week when I'm still at work. My last day is Wednesday, deary me. And I still haven't heard from the MC, I hope the function centre lady figures out this 7 extra people business, then realises I've asked her twice about the MC.

NO! When you look back in 10, 20, 30 years, you are going to remember:
- The look on FH's face when he first sees you
- Your first kiss as husband and wife
- Your first dance
- The wave of goodwill and love

You will NOT remember how you spelt register 'registrar'.

Fact!

Congratulations finally! :D

Well we had a fantastic day yesterday. Everything went perfectly and we had heaps of fun sharing the day with friends and family. I'll post some pics when I can get them off people. It was such a happy day and I can't imagine how it could have been any better :D

Good luck to all you ladies in the weeks to come. I'll be checking in to see your photos and hear your stories :D

I wish everyone would get off my phone and stop emailing me! I don't care if the which kids want nuggets and which have chicken schnitzel. Just someone else make the decisions I really couldn't be arsed making right now! I must be the laziest bride ever hahaha

Everyone sees me at work and is like OMG your getting married on Saturday and then makes this face that kinda says 'Oh yep, here comes the breakdown the poor thing' :lol: And I'm like yeah... I've kinda stopped caring about all the dumb crap now and just want it to happen.

Ahhh that's annoying...tell them the menu is in and they'll get what they're given! It's your week hun - a time for you to finalise last minute details but mostly focus on YOU. Not people's fricken gut desires.

I'm getting pretty damn excited. Picked up my dress tonight, paid the florist, sorted the table numbers. Forecast says isolated showers, hopefully they're isolated away from us, haha!

I think yesterday was a one off, this morning I replied to a few more emails about silly questions etc etc etc, but then went to a meeting and then got taken out for lunch and no more phone calls/emails! So I think I've finally answered them all, and everyone is clear on what the g.o is, thank god. So as of 5mins ago my brain has gone on holidays I think hahaha. Last day at work tomorrow too! Woohoo! Bye bye brain, see you in Phuket!

But the girl who is getting married friday week in my team's last day is today, if only I had that much annual leave! I wish! She isn't going on a honeymoon though... but I would have liked this week at home.

Speech and CD burning at FH's tonight, so those will be the main things off the list left, done!

Congratulations Spinkle! Hope your having a great time!

How are all the rest of you ladies going?

I had a complete meltdown yesterday - being asked stupid dumb questions over and over again !! It just got to me in the end.
Feeling calmer today thank god.

My dress is getting pressed tomorrow and my hair is being coloured.

Only 3 more sleeps! OH MY! 8O
