I'm pretty sure if I don't write something soon, my only posts will be 'catching up' posts, so I've just dropped in quickly to say hi.
In the last week we have had hair trials which went fine, I only have a pic of the bridesmaid hair as mine was like mine but with a bit more oomph. there not much you can do with jaw length hair. Mums was the main worry or me as she hadn't met the girls before and she doesn't much like her hair at the moment anyway. all was good.
Then we went to the dress makers, tried on a toile of my jacket, which I've been back and tried on again since, and its lovely. 3/4 length sleeves with a little scrunch at the end, and a nice plain collar. sorry, no pictures.
mum and I went int othe church and decidd where to put the flowers - did i mention ever that due to health and safety vases on the window ledges were a no-go? well they are. so we are having one in the porch, one either side as you go in, the little wicker hearts hanging off the pew ends, a big pedastal in front of the altar rail, and then the church does the ones beyond the altar. I confirmed all that with the florist on monday, and we are going to try to make two of the gyp hearts ourselves to hang outside the doors at the venue.
we went to the venue on sunday to choose the menu, its looking scrummy! not going to post it yet, but I will at some point soon. Shes also sorted the bottles of yates beer for James, (its alocal beer) and we asked lots of other little questions, and got a lot sorted.
Lovely bridesmaid came over last night (thursday is going to be our wedding night) and we made the second batch of jam for the favours, and managed to finish it all, so it just needs labelled and the fabric put on top. We also chose the pieces of slate to use (we only need 8 now) and cleaned it up. And we picked out the best vases for the church, to give to the florist, and made the last labels for the cameras.
Lastly, I think, its my hen this weekend!! I'm excited and terrified. there is a day bit with me, 2 bridesmaids, my SIL & MIL (yes I booked time off for my hen on a weekend that my mum is at the other end of the country. I am a tit.) then a few hours peace, and and evening bit with meal, drinks, and god knows what else. One of my bridesmaids is travelling up from bedford today for it, I havn't seen her sinceher wedding ayear and a half ago! very excited.
The new house is lovely, odd to be living here but I'm getting used to it! Its still a tip, but a box gets unpacked each day. I'm finding it hard to concentrate on the wedding bits when all I want to do is unpack, but only a month to go!
so thats all for now, a bit of a wordy post but someone who shall remain nameless has been nagging me for information ;) so I thought I would share it with you all, or another week will go by and I won't have written any more!
