Hi Girls! How's the plans going? My invites arrived last week and I promptly sent them off. I designed them and then ordered through Cards and Pockets in the US. Aside from the fact that the postage is ridiculous I am soooo happy with them. I can't believe it... MIL made a comment about the wording. FH's parents are separated and they've not offered to put a cent towards the wedding. MIL is on a pension so we are paying her accommodation and buying a new dress for her. So anyway, MIL has a, nickname, I guess (she has been called this all her life), so on the invite I put *Mr M & Mrs M* invite *guest* to the wedding of Miss M & Mr D son of *Mr D & Ms S*. When I did her invite though, I put her nickname on it. She made a comment that is was weird that she was invited to a wedding where her name was mentioned twice yet different. Ugh, seriously the ***** is never happy. I'm blaming it on FH, I asked what to put and that is what he said. Also while I'm on the MIL, she has done ballroom dancing for years now. She taught SIL and her husband to dance for their wedding. I loved it and asked her then (4 years ago) if she would teach us. She said she would love to. So FH asked her and she said she doesn't know how to do it and we should get dance lessons because she hates it when people stand there and sway. Ummmm, coming from a woman who has no money, does she realise how expensive dance lessons are. Not to mention the fact that we live in a little town and our nearest bridal waltz lessons would be at least 3 hours away. Anyway, sorry for the rant!
We head down to Brisbane/Sunshine Coast next week. Lots of dress fittings over the new year as well as finally meeting with our celebrant. A meeting with the photographer, DJ and a hair and makeup trial. I'm yet to find my shoes. Well, I've found some that I'm happy with but I really wanted flats so I'm hoping that some will just jump out at me...boxing day sales perhaps? Also hoping to get my jewellery and underwear at the sales. I'm a bonds girl so will be stepping out of my comfort zone with something sexy! Am thinking I'll buy some wear them and make sure they're comfy and then buy some new ones for the wedding once I know they aren't riding up my bum
I need to get a garter and have found a little frame to put on my bouquet with photos of my 3 passed grandparents.
So, what is happening in your worlds?
