- Wedding: October 2013 - A Beautiful converted Barn
Ok Bees, I have 155 days to go til the big day. Just over 5 months. Where has the time gone?!
I have been engaged since October 2011 and we planned alot of the big things very early on. Although I wouldn’t change the way we did things (it has made planning pretty much stress free so far) it did mean that for the past year we have had very little to do!
Anyway – Ive been feeling VERY wedding-y recently!! LOTS to do and think about!!
I’ve ordered my wedding jewellery
I have 12mm stretched lobes and was finding it REALLY hard to find any plugs/tunnels that I liked. I wanted something feminine and was having real problems. Anyway – I found a picture of some plugs online that I LOVED!!! Luckily I know someone who makes jewellery and she is making me a set of plugs and a matching necklace for a VERY reasonable price! YAY!! I have also bought a 15 strand pearl statement necklace from lightinthebox.com that has been shipped and is on its way. I am notoriously bad at making decisions…Statement or matching… that is the question!!
My bridesmaid dresses are in and ready to be ordered!!
I am ordering them from eBay and every time I have looked to buy them at least 1 of the 3 sizes I need have been sold out. anyway – ALL 3 sizes are in and I am ready to order them 2nite!
Im showing my mum my dress!!!
My mum and dad are coming over to visit and I have an appointment to show mum, my gran, my sister and other 2 BMs my dress next Saturday while the soon to be hubby takes dad to be measured for his suit! I bought the dress with my MOH, M&D live overseas and weren’t over when I went shopping – so this is the 1st time she has seen it. SUPER EXCITED!!!
I think I have picked my shoes!
Beautiful leopard print flats!
I always knew I would be wearing flats – im 5’ 9” and my H2B is only an inch or so taller than me and seeing as I don’t like being taller than him I am limited to what heel height I can go for!
So I have narrowed it down to 2 pairs that I love!!! Cant decide between them though – they are pretty much identical shoes but the teeny tiny heels are a slightly different shape. Am going to buy both and see what they look like on J
We are booking an ‘Open harp surgery’!!
We have got a harpist playing for us from before the ceremony until the end of the drinks reception and the time has come for us to now send her some music choices and meet up to hear her play them.
(I think) I am walking in to the ‘ice dance’ from Edward Scissorhands and cant wait to hear her play it!!
How far is everyone else in planning? How many days to go?! Any favourite bits so far??
