Good luck tomorrow KC - hope you and your FH are both fully healthy and have a beautiful day!

Just a celebrant update girls, we saw Joy Jensen and Steve Rowan today and we think we will book with Joy. Thank you to all who gave me advice... Steve was not as 'hard sell' in person as he was over the phone, but we still felt we just clicked better with Joy...

Hey all

Frenzal hope you enjoy your tea.

Leanne, I'm not having one either, maybe a WC one isn't a bad idea :lol:

Hmmm wonder how KC is going? It's very windy but at least the sun is shining for her.

OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OM G IM MARRIED!!!!!!!!!!!!

holy moley, they day went soo soo quick! and the photos are going to be absolutly amazing, from what i saw, some of them should be up on the blog for infinity stuidos tomorrow, or tomorrow night!

im sitting here trying to think where to start.. but i dont know where lol... i was so proud of the kids, they did an amazing job! it was really windy, but out on the lawn it was sheltered, and warm, so we got to release the doves thank goodness, i lost it a few times, once in the limo on the way to the wedding.. that was where it first hit me.. had to pant like i was having a baby to stop myslef bawling..lol then when i was waiting for the girls to walk down the isle i started gettng quick emotional to.. im waiting for my sister to get back over here so i can download some pictures.. and as a bonus i had booked and only paid for a 4 seater sedan to take us home, we got a limo! The dress was absolutly amazing.. and im really hanging to show you pics, it was a huge hit, and everybody commented on it all night!

advice, when you dont have to leave the house till like 2pm or even 3pm, you still do not have a lot of time.. i was so rushed and hardly had time to stop and think.. and here i was thinking that part of the day would go soooo slowly!

i will put my story up later today or when we get back from our honeymoon!

thank you all for your support and helpfulness! love you girls!

Here's my hair trial pics.....

This was the first pic how I wanted my hair:

Then I found this one and liked it too.

I sent both of them off to my hairdresser and she thought the 2nd one was more formal/bridey..... so that's the one we've decided to go with:

Remember - this is just a very rough trial.... more to see if I like the style - and she didn't have any hairspray (we were at her house). She agrees that I will definitely need hair extensions - I want the curls down my back.... I didn't like the fringe the way she first did it, but we pulled it back a little and made it softer on my face and it looked heaps better. So on the actual day, it will be more refined, less messy, have tons of hairspray and extensions. Oh and it will be dyed chocolate brown too.

You poor thing, sarze. I hope you are back to your self soon. I had to have a little giggle picturing you in your hospital bed, still making wedding plans. :D The show must go on regardless of you being in agony. that's true dedication for you.

we paid for another two people to eat today. :bdance: And I will ring to order my flowers from the flower market probably today. I am feeling scarily under control atm. The next thing on my list is my bra, so that I can have my dress fitted.

I had a bit of a play with my make up yesterday,too . And I am feeling pretty confident that I can pull it off myself. :lol: I think I need different colours for my eyes tho.I was planning on dusky pink/brownish tones but think i need more colour. I am blonde and my eyes are blue. What do you girls think?

Ohhh Sarze, hopefully you're feeling a bit better now? Kidney stones are horrible, I've seen my Dad suffer with them.

LOL Roberta, that's what Greg says everytime we pay something off the reception "yay more people can eat now" lol..... I'm feeling a little in control... still got a bit to DIY but it'll get done.... Mum is starting to freak out though :lol:

I don't have the confidence at all to do my own makeup... bugger that, I'd probably look like a clown in the pics lol. I'm no good with makeup at all..... so sorry Roberta, can't help you with that one! Can you do a trial, post some pics? someone on here will be able to give you some advice. Or go to one of those makeup counters in Myer and ask them which would be the best colours for you to use.
