I really was/am! Although by that point we were thoroughly bored of smiling, even my very vain new DH grin

Scheherezade Thu 17-Jan-13 15:41:37

TobyLerone Thu 17-Jan-13 15:57:31

Ah toby absolutly gorgeous! Love this picture. Such a gorgeous relaxed photo. Congrats again!

That's such a lovely pic.

Can we see the rest of your dress and shoes?

We had our first wedding panic today.

Scheherezade Sat 19-Jan-13 15:31:43

Ooh what over akiss ?

My veil arrived today, I'm absolutely over the moon, it's gorgeous. Between fingertip & Knee length with scattered pearls all over and a tiny gold thread running round the edges.

Church service was cancelled today because of the snow, so we didn't get to meet with our organist. Still undecided on songs. I need entrance, signing of teh register and recessional songs, we've decided on hymns.

Scheherezade Sat 19-Jan-13 15:32:07

Oh, and it's silk, so so soft and floaty.

There is a big festival in Sussex the day of our wedding so all the hotels are booked up already. It's proving very difficult to find places for the guests to stay.

Your veil sounds lovely. I can't remember which one l chose in the end but I have my first dress fitting next month.

TobyLerone Sat 19-Jan-13 16:19:38

I'll try to sort out a Flickr in the next few days with a few photos for those who want them. Next week is about sorting everything out!

The veil sounds lovely smile

AKiss, will that many people want to stay over who can't stay with family/friends?

DP's family are local and can put some guests up if need be. We could give people the keys to our house and let them kip here if it comes to it. It's mainly people coming from abroad, and from London who we need to find something for.

Looking forward to seeing your pics.

Nearest Travelodge with space block booking and a minibus? Camping?!

Scheherezade Sat 19-Jan-13 21:04:59

That is frustrating! We live miles away from any of our guests, no friends or family nearby for them to stay at. I've no idea what any of them are doing!! We have two spare beds, but I guess we'll have to give those to our close family/bridesmaids.

Scheherezade Sat 26-Jan-13 22:54:33

Been given the go ahead to paint the hall smile

How's everyone doing? So glad you had an amazing wedding Tjobes can't wait to see the pictures smile

I feel your pain AKiss, sorting out accommodation has been the most stressful thing so far. There is some kind of motor racing event going on and lots of local hotels being difficult as 'they may want to block book' grrr I want to block book and I'm doing it first!!

Veil sounds amazing Scheherezade I was going to use my friends as a my 'something borrowed' but it was too short for the dress. I've got a chapel length with lace just from fingertips down which matches the lace on my dress. I love it but bit of a confession telling DP the cost blush

I've had a busy couple of days as I'm between sets of nights. Have sorted out boys and girls outfits. Boys in black tailcoats, pinstripe trousers, dove grey double breasted waistcoat and midnight blue ties. DP will have ivory textured waistcoat with silk ivory tie and best man matching tie with dove grey waistcoat.
Bridesmaids have these. Have also book appt to give notice, feels very formal and real now!

Scheherezade Sun 03-Feb-13 20:55:16

That all sounds very smart everything ! I only have my DS (who will be 20 months), 3 bridesmaids and a best man (who is a woman) to think of. Bridesmaids are in these - it's a lot more white than it seems in that picture. I really wanted all white long dresses for the bridesmaids, so that my dress stands out as it is covered in gold and quite intricate. I also have bright orange hair, with blonde highlights. In the photos I want to be the one that catches the eye, and I didn't want to be lost by a bold bright block colour behind me.

Best (wo)man will be buying her own black trouser suit and silk ivory open collared shirt, and killer cream heels. DP will be in black tails with ivory waistcoat and cravat, possibly a touch of gold in there - we've not seen them in the flesh yet, and grey pinstripe trousers.

Can't decide for DS. I find the little boys tuxedo suits so cute, but a bit uncomfortable dressing my little boy up as a grown up. It's a shame you can't get cute little outfits for boys like you can for girls. So I'm thinking of this as I have gold as a theme, with smart brown/cream linen trousers.

My dress is off white with gold lace applique, pearls and beads all over.

Scheherezade Sun 03-Feb-13 20:56:13

So yes, we've just got to organise when we're going to paint the hall, then sort out what we're feeding people in the evening, what drinks we're having, and how we're going to do it all with no catering staff.

memphis83 Tue 05-Feb-13 09:13:34

Sounds like you have it all sorted, love te bridesmaid dresses, I want my bm in something like that but navy.
My ds will be 3.5 I didn't want him in a suit as I want him to be comfy and warm as it is in March. So we have bought him shirt, tie and tweed trousers and waistcoat from m and s hten in case its cold as there is no heating a nice duffle coat and would lve a little bowler hat! He is obsessed with being warm!
My new panic is Richard III being found and the funeral for him will be early next year...our wedding is in building next door so if it was same weekend we will have to change date or venue.y mum says o plus side they will clean up the surrounding area so will look nicer!

Scheherezade Wed 06-Feb-13 09:57:33

oh wow, yep your mums right it'll be made to look really nice at least maybe go the weekend before if you can, they might even have flowers up on the street.

EverythingInMjiniature Thu 07-Feb-13 01:39:01

Memphis, I bet none of us dreamed a funeral for a long dead king could interfere with a wedding!

Ds outfit sounds cute beyond words!

What colour are you painting the hall scheherezade?

Scheherezade Thu 07-Feb-13 09:03:34

Waiting to hear back from the committee, but I've said a neutral white/cream. The outside is black and white. It's currently peach hmm

I picked my flowers today. So excited and a bit drunk
