nope nothing new, its been a hectic couple of weeks at work for us both (but more unusually for me) so weekends have been quieter.

I have messaged our friends with the wedding decorating business this evening to set up a date to meet with them and a florist they work with.. cant wait! this is their page on fb and it shows some amazing photos of weddings theyve done
http://www.facebook.com/?ref=tn_tnmn...overed?fref=ts

I dont think I posted this before but here is a photo of the bridesmaid dresses all hung up in their bags...


Oh and one of my bridesmaids, C, has taken my hen do invite list and is starting on plans! theyre a secret from me lol. All shes told me is that shes looking at the last weekend in september or the first weekend in october, depending on everyones availability. I'm so excited but scared at the same time She keeps threatening we'll be going to 'shagaluf' otherwise known as magaluf...not my scene at all!

erm...cant think of anything else, ill add to this post if anything springs to mind!

Some of those arrangements are fantastic!!!!!

I'm going to assume that a "Hen do" is like a girls night out before the wedding? I don't have enough friends to have something like that.. .it would mostly be family.. and my family would do their best to make me beet red the whole night. Ah.. the joys of eloping. LOL

Thanks - its really exciting!

Here's their website - not got as many photos as fb but it should give you a gist Chair Covers and Wedding Decorations in Derby - Events Covered

Yeah ashley a hen do (as opposed to a stag do for the guys) is some sort of night out / event/ holiday prior to the wedding with girl friends and female relatives usually come too. I expect to spend a great proportion of the time beet red too although C who is organising it all is understanding so it should be too cringe-worthy!

Oh and we are meeting with my friend who runs the business and a florist she works with on the 23rd March! yipee!

Ohh... I love flowers. I'm allergic, but I love them anyway.

What ones are you mulling around? I have the worst memory...what color are the girls dresses again? Deep wine/maroon? (I could be wrong)

Ashley- yep they're a red wine colour. Flower wise I really like babys breath so thinking something with that for bridesmaids flowers. Its mine I cant decide on, that and whether I want flower table centrepieces or not.. these are a few things we like the look of -

Wedding / Paper lanterns as light-up centerpieces. Pretty!

Wedding / Centerpiece

Wedding / Centerpieces!

Wedding / Centerpieces and decorations are located on this website at a decent price!

CD21 - Cycle # 20, NTNP

Cycle wise, nothing interesting to report (not surprising!) I'm pretty sure I O'd last sunday/monday so AF will likely arrive next weekend or early the following week. Nothing interesting going on.

Howeverr, I really came to add more wedding plans

We had a ring salesman come to our house on thursday evening, we had met him at a local wedding fayre a few weekends ago and made an appointment for one evening after work. It was so convenient for us, especially given robs long working hours! Anyway, since i'm 100% decided on my ring (2mm platinum comfort fit band) as it matches my engagement ring, the main thing now is DF picking his ring! the salesman brought literally 100's of samples for him to look at and he came up with something he liked - a few different elements from a few different rings and we got a price (fairly affordable/decent) but he decided he wasnt sure so we still havent put an order in. Of note, he gave us the cheapest price yet for my ring. So the jury is still out on rings...

Tonight I have booked the tickets for me and 3 of my bridesmaids to go to the national wedding show in Birmingham next weekend. Itll sadly only be 3 of the bridesmaids as the 4th is 38 weeks preggo and ready to pop, its her second and her first came about 33 weeks I think so is REALLY ready for the baby girl to make an entrance! We'll be sending her lots of photos throughout the day to keep her involved.
Here is the website for the wedding show: The ultimate wedding shopping experience full of glamour and inspiration | Wedding Stories | National Wedding Show

Whats great it that there's a lady going to be there who we are 85% sure we're going to order our invites from, we also met her at a local wedding fayre a few weekends ago. Here her website: KH Designs - Wedding Stationery Designs We really like the ones where she draws a sketch of our venue and its used at the design on the invite, its a little more pricey than we hoped but definately our favourite invite so far!

Anyway I think thats plenty for today, hope nobody minds me including this in here as I really dont have much ttc-wise to write about at the moment!

I love to hear all about your wedding plans!!! Please share any time

That is so amazing that someone came to your house with all those rings!!! We had to drive an hour and wait to meet with someone and it really was a pain. . . glad he had ones you guys liked!

The national wedding show sounds so fun and even more fun to go with your bridesmaids! Those invitations look amazing!!!!! So personalized that you can have the venue on there.

I LOVE WEDDINGS!!!!!
