Today: The Sun, Tan lines and the dress fitting

8 Jun

Today was a very exciting day in the wedding Calendar.

For today I got to have the final check on my wedding dress to make sure it still fitted and I still liked it.

I had my chief bridesmaid come with me, for an emotional reaction test, I knew she was excited to see what it looked like, and I had some bits and bobs I wanted to try with the dress.

I had bought my veil online from www.lightinthebox.com, more as a test than anything else, for not nearly the price that veils were being sold at in bridal shops! And I loved it. I would have to attach the beads on more securely, but that’s something to do in the week leading up to the wedding, and it was the perfect length for me!!

I also tried out the glorious bridal shoes I bought from Debenhams, with associated heel grips to stay on!

I seriously couldn’t love them more, as when I tried on the dress, try we’re the perfect height for my toe to just poke out the bottom of the dress as I stepped forward. Couldn’t have picked a better pair!

And my CB was also ending the right emotional signals, almost crying at how pretty and beautiful I looked. It’s not often I get to blow my own trumpet at such, but I think there is a requirement on your wedding day! And I loved how I looked. And it just felt amazing to wear.

Today was also the day Charlie got his groomsmen suits sorted. It’s all coming together now! 60 days 🙂 and we have just signed our contract for temporary accommodation here in Cheltenham before the big move to Milton Keynes.

Today has been a good day. An exciting day.

I’m regards to the tan lines comment in the title, I became very aware, just as the weather perked up enough for me to consider leaving my hoodie at home, that I had a strapless wedding dress. Where the only part of my skin visible would be my shoulders, arms and head. The bits that are very sensitive to THE TSHIRT TAN. Now, not to be dramatic, but I’m now doing a rain Dance. Every morning, after I clean my face.

I have wisely invested in some strapless tops to wear if I know the jumpers will be coming off, I also wear no bracelets.

The only tan line I don’t mind being visible now is the one my engagement ring will make when I have my wedding ring put on my finger, but I think that’s an ok one to have on your wedding day!

That’s me done for now I think. Chat soon readers!

Today: What a Day

10 Jan

So today, not only have I gone to work and got quite a bit done, I have phonecalls with potential photographers!

We currently have two, but will have to look on price. We have a quote from our flowers provider which is alot less than what we were expecting!

I also got a quote on a potential wedding car as well. Though I need to call them up tomorrow about that….

My running plan to go 222 miles in a year is underway, week one of the plan and I am 2.5 miles up. It’s also week 2 of my diet, and i’m 2lbs down on week one weigh in 🙂

So, the end result of the past couple of days is a positive one, and to brighten my day up more, the days are counting down till the first F1 test!

Today: The Flowers

6 Jan

Well I sit here on a Sunday night, safe in the comfort that my flower arrangements have been requested and I am now waiting on a quote 🙂

Things are getting ticked off the list very rapidly! Just got to sort out the invitations now then the big stresses are outta the way, and we just have to work on paying it!!

The next big thing on my list is getting back into shape. Having been silently tormented by every picture taken of me in the past few months, my new gym time is starting. First things first is a program to get me running for 30mins, that’s 8 weeks long, and I plan on working till my muscles hurt. I’ve got me #RunIntoOrbit challenge, and I just want to get for again. It’s a bit frustrating that there are no Netball clubs in Cheltenham that I can really join, and what little skill I had at hockey doesn’t justify me joining a local club. Swimming may be on the cards though! Once a week that would be good to get my strength up 🙂

I just want my cake shelf do go and I think I will be a happy person 🙂

But yes I will update you all later in the week!

Today: The Caterers

3 Jan

Today is the first meeting with the caterers for our wedding. Because if the deal we have, we have a limited menu, but there is stuff we like at least!

Choosing the stuff we like isn’t really an issue, it’s more those with all their dietary requirements, and those who are fussy. I.e. veggies. Whatever you call them, anybody who can’t have, or doesn’t like what’s on our menu, is annoying. And there will be people!!! It’s not that I don’t like these people, intact I love them enough to invite them to our wedding! But any path off the easy route is just going to bug me.

We have questions for the. Caterers today, about seating plane and table numbers and payments… It’s going to be an interesting meeting to say the least.

At least we are bucking the trend of normal table service and NOT having chicken… It’s a surprise!!!!
