Days to Go: 321

It’s not been a busy week wedding-wise this week. I have (finally) got in touch with my florist. I’ve asked him to send me a final quote so that I can update my spreadsheet, but other than that, it’s all  been quiet on the wedding front.

I have made plans to begin the hunt for bridesmaid dresses over my holiday in a week. I like Alfred Angelo 7016, as do my bridesmaids, however I can’t find it at an affordable price. I have 4 adult bridesmaids plus my oldest niece so the hunt continues.

While I’ve not done much for my our wedding, I have been blogging this week!

I wasn’t feeling very bride-like on Monday so I made a post all about how to feel like a bride. Well, it’s difficult to feel like a bride when your wedding planning stretches over two and a half years, and the wedding is still months away!

I also wanted to post about the best man’s fitting as it was a fairly emotional fitting for me. I felt we were bringing together different elements of the wedding, it made it seem more real. I don’t think anyone else got emotional, just me. We did, however, take lots of pictures of the best man all dressed up. I was tempted to ask them to put h2b in a suit so we could take photos but I thought that might be a touch too cheeky.

On Wednesday I went to a wedding fayre at Madeley Court Hotel. I love going to wedding fayres, I’m a bit of an addict. (Well… free cake! That should be enough for anyone!) It was a fairly small wedding fayre, really, with only a handful of exhibitors. The Madeley Court wedding fares are normally fairly busy so I do try to visit.

I have been looking at photo thank you cards. I’m a bit obsessed with photos, I’ll take a picture of everything and anything! I was thinking of sending out photo thank you cards to my guests. A friend of mine sent out Photobox cards that were really nice and it reminded us of her day, so I thought of doing the same! I’ve been looking into the best and most affordable photo cards.

To be a bit controversial, I’ve been thinking about whether or not to invite children to weddings. I’m not sure what every one else thinks about having children at weddings: some brides want to ban the baby, other brides welcome children at their weddings. There are pros and cons to having children at weddings.

Actually, that does sound like a busy week!

    Yes, that’s definitely a busy week! I like your blog post about kids at weddings. It’s always quite a controversial one. Most of the invitations I write for people include kids when I think about it.

    Anyway, as you say it’s 321 days to go, can you do the 321 thing with your fingers? (Or am I the only one old enough to know what that means…?)

    3…2…1… Go!

    Left left… down… up… up up up up… grab!

    No no, we all watched … ooh which one was it? There were so many Saturday morning breakfast shows back then!

    I’m actually more looking forward to when it’s 123 day to go!
