Started on site stuff by dyzzidi, thought I'd move it here... if you're getting married and want a chat about your wedding, then here is the place !!

I'm getting married May 28th, and we got the rings today... still not completely sure on shoes, and need them by 27th April at the very latest !!!

I am already (4 years this year ) so probably shouldn't really post here, but....


Don't worry, it will all fall into place - I think I found the right shoes for mine literally 3 days before hand!

Have fun shopping for shoes. I was in 'your shoes' haha ;) two years ago. I got a compromise pair then took them back when I saw a better pair and put those on order. Before the ones came in on order, I found the perfect pair.

hello, also already married but can't resist posting anyway. i got my shoes from debenhams in nottingham about an hour before the wedding. (they were nice black evening shoes, as my dress was purple).

I'm also already spliced, but can I just recommend This company for bridal shoes, gorgeous shapes & yet dead comfy

NomDePlume Wed 13-Apr-05 13:48:35

I wore these to my wedding, from the designer range at Rainbow Club

It's coming thru the post? I have now been married 8 weeks!

Have a fantastic day - it will all go so quickly.

Congratulations all of you blushing brides
I have been married for nearly 7 years and a friend of mine was fantastic in helping me with ideas and getting stuff sorted. She is now a professional wedding planner and here is her website ""
Sorry for the blatant plug but she really is very good and it may be worth checking out her website!

Peckarollover Sat 16-Apr-05 10:23:19

Yeah, it came in the post! I bought it off ebay.

There is a pic of it here

wedding planning pics

It came and is as lush as I rememeber.

Table decorations : these are great for holding table numbers/menus/embarrassing photos of the bride & groom/whatever on the table

flamesparrow Sat 16-Apr-05 13:02:25

Yay!!! Thread has taken off!!!

I can't see the pic of your dress

Our colours are cream and periwinkle blue (matches DD's eyes). FINALLY got the shoes!!

Went to Lakeside to meet some lovely ladies off a website, and happened to spot a shoe shop, and found a pair that were perfect fit!!! ... will reprhase.. PSYCHOMUM found them (she'll beat me otherwise), I was looking for shoes for her son at the time!! Anyway, they are the indiany type ones that are about lots at the moment - flat, gold sparklies on them. (The dress has lots of gold so they go nicely)... Boy is now scared I am wearing a belly dancing outfit or something!!!

Our rings... Boy got a titanium one with a diamond, and mine is a gold engraved one. It looked too much with my engagaement ring too though, so I am having that enlarged to wear on the other hand.

Finished sorting flowers today, pretty much all that's left is order of service and making the party favours (my mum probably has a HUGE list of other things that I don't know about though .

We have established that I will be sobbing my heart out on the day... met up with the minister to go through all the wording, and I was choked up just reading it

Just had to post when I saw this thread - my friend is getting married today at 2pm but 500 miles away and I couldn't go. Am totally gutted, wish I was there and feeling quite teary, ridiculous woman that I am.

Best wishes to her and all the other brides to be!

Peckarollover Sat 16-Apr-05 13:28:35

here is my dress again

I keep going up to wear its hanging and zipping the cover down a bit to have a peek!

Your shoes sound lush - Im thinking of getting some like that for the evening.

Peckarollover Sat 16-Apr-05 13:28:55

Goo Luck kbears friend!

Peckarollover Sat 16-Apr-05 13:30:31

I love \link[\these} shoes, but not sure if they quite match the dress

KBear Sat 16-Apr-05 13:30:57
