Me! I'm getting married on the 21st. It seems so close all of a sudden. I really need to go have a another dress fitting but have a horrible feeling that I have put weight on over the holidays!

ZiggyForever Fri 18-Aug-17 15:46:30

Me too grin

29th. And I have the same fitting-into-dress issue after a boozy summer . . . diet as of Monday!

7th oct for me! Third fitting is next week. I hope it fits!

JimmyPestoJunior Fri 18-Aug-17 22:39:12

I'm glad it's not just me in the dress fitting panic! I've been to the gym every day this week in an effort to make the my dress fit. I don't suppose the three glasses of wine I've had tonight are going to help though...

Let's see your dresses!!

chamenanged30 Sat 19-Aug-17 06:49:20

Your dresses are beautiful! This is not my exact dress but it's the closest I could find online. I also have one of those little back to front lace jackets to wear with it to add a more detail around the shoulders and 3/4 length sleeves.

Me! I am on the 21st, church followed by afternoon high tea and evening bbq with band. Silver and pink with burgundy theme, medically themed sweet table and cocktail bar.

That is it in a nutshell!

JimmyPestoJunior Thu 31-Aug-17 14:54:37

What's a medically themed sweet table, @ChimpyChops? Sounds interesting!

I have been abroad for a few days and managed to get bikini strap marks on my shoulders despite trying desperately to avoid them. I hope they fade a lot by the wedding as they really won't go with my off the shoulder dress!

He is a paramedic and I am a health care assistant, I was against having a sweet table but once I saw the idea I had to do it.
So we have urine sample pots filled with yellow sherbet, stool sample pots with chocolate raisins inside, strawberry laces in a pot signed blocked arteries, we have those cardboard vomit bowls with packets of haribo and love hearts, refreshers etc, I have bought plastic shot glasses as pill cups and we are putting m&ms in those, cotton wool balls which are big marshmellows, medical gloves filled with popcorn and tied.
We also have the little pots they fill with ear syringing waste with our glow sticks!

Hope they fade! I have spent summer in a cardigan as I am not comfortable in strapless tops and didn't want half pink arms! lol.

What are you all doing for entertainment?

Daytime: caricaturist
Evening: DJ, photo booth, sweets bar with servers.

I'm worried the daytime is a bit empty.

I'm on the 26th. So close now...

I@m now getting married on the 29th Oct.. originally was getting married in April but my future FiL is terminally ill so we've moved it forward a lot. I've got 6 weeks to cancel one wedding and plan another from scratch sad

Luckily I already have my dress and our venue decorators are free on our new date!

gttia Sun 24-Sep-17 10:21:49

What are all putting as your table decorations? There's only 18 of us and I'm really struggling!

JimmyPestoJunior Sat 14-Oct-17 15:32:29

gttia Wed 18-Oct-17 08:50:39
