Gah!!!! I was just about to finish writing a huge reply & we had a blackout & I lost it all!!! Damn it!! But I don't want to complain... it's because there's a big storm - which is fantastic because we really really need the rain!
So here we go again!
Yes! It looks like it's just the two of us!
Yay!!! Dress fitting!!! How exciting! It will be so lovely to have your FMIL there too. Mine doesn't want to do anything like that with me because she wants a surprise on the day. I am still waiting on my dress from bridalgown.net. I have told them the wedding is 3rd Nov, so hopefully it will be getting sent soon! They have 3 weeks to go!! I emailed them again yesterday about it, but haven't got a reply yet.
I did up all the kids activity books yesterday (thanks work
). Now I just have to get them a lollipop each & a little box of crayons. They will have pencils on the table they can all use. And I have to find something for the babies that are too little to do the activity books.
I have still got a fair few big payments to go, but I have money put aside for them. They aren't due yet, so I thought it would be better sitting in my bank account earning interest then in theirs!
I still have a few weeks till the RSVP date, but I've got a fair few they haven't replied yet. At the moment there are 62 adults & 11 kids coming & about 23 still to reply - most of them are couples - so about 46 people. Not many of FH's family has replied yet, but his mum thinks most of them will come.
I still need to organise a make-up trial & a catch up with the photographer to find where we're going to get the location photos done. Other than that I think we are pretty organised.. Oh I've got to find some paper for the typewriter. I was also thinking I might find some sheets of pretty card and cut them into note size pieces & have them there as well, so if people don't want to type us a note they can write one. I thought about using vintage post cards, but if I put them into the guest book writing side up you wont see the post card anyway. I've got little envelopes to put the notes in, so they can be pulled out & read, so if I do up cards that will fit in them I think it should work ok.
I want to do up my OOS, but for some reason I'm holding back - I think in case something happens & someone doing a reading or something ends up not being able to do it/be there and their name will be on the sheet.
