    I am a bride to be! I am getting married to my partner of 4 years on 1st May next year. I have already bought my wedding dress, it is gorgeous but in a size 20! lol...Im currently sitting in size 16-18!

    The theme is my favourite colours of red, white and black.

    I am out on Sat with 2 of my 3 bridesmaids to get them their black bridesmaid dresses. My niece is going to be a flower girl wearing white/ivory.

    I went out yesterday and bought the card to make my own invitations and these will hopefully be completed before Christmas but sent out in Jan when everyone has the January blues...something to cheer them up :D

    My Aunty will be doing my cake...she is a professional cake maker/decorator and has suggested a 4ft cake haha....each with a different layer!

    I will literally be 12 months post op then and the question on everyones lips is...will I be pregnant for then?! Hehehe

    I will be having roses in a posey as will the maids and I am getting wed in my church that I attend each week, followed by a night do at the local Rugby club....I am so excited, and also pretty scared that we only have 5 months to go! :D

    Hi Sal, I am a hopeless romantic and actually considered wedding planning as a career. So if you need any help, want an extra pair of hands, etc just let me know because I LOVE wedding stuff! Ahh, 12 years ago I was a bride, seems like it was just yesterday...

    Enjoy!
    Nic:D

    Good Luck with the wedding. We got married 2 months ago and had a fabulous day. I also did lots of things myself, invitations, cake, room decorations, ring pillow, flowers etc. Whether it was to keep me sane or because I'm a control freak is open to interpretation :D

    The last three months of preparation really flew by until suddenly we were thinking OMG only 2 weeks to go and still so much to do.

    With regards to your dress don't worry about it, the shop I bought my dress from said they had changed a dress from a 28 down to a 16 so I don't think they'll have any problems with yours. So if you do come across any stumbling blocks get a second opinion.

    Good Luck xxx

    Good lick

    Thank you for all your kind words!
    This weekend I am planning on trying to get the invitations sorted. I was supposed to be bridesmaid shopping, but my bridesmaids cant all make it after all (somethng to do with kasabian tickets in London so I fully appreciate it lol)
    My invitations will be very plain, and when we have made some I will photo and put one on here.
    I think we will be making the button holes ourselves as I want all the guests to have them, but I think my bouquet may have to be bought...not sure yet!
    Ahh well...thats where we are up to! Sal xx

    That's alright lovey, you know you could get plain invites and maybe find a nice rubber stamp with a design you like to tart the plain invites up and match up some plain white favour boxes etc.
    I love doing this sort of thing ;)

    They are adults and one baby flower girl who is my niece. There are court issues and custody issues happening at the moment with my niece however we have had a court agreement that she can attend the wedding which is AMAZING news and I am sooooo pleased :)

    Best wedding news so far!

    That's so wonderful your little niece gets to dress up and be your flowergirl, I bet she can't wait! I hope everything is sorted out around her as soon as possible.
    I bet all of you are going to look fab , are the bridesmaids all in red?
    I'm not sure what's happening for mine, I was expecting my 3 little nieces would be up for bridesmaid duty but when I said to my sis about our wedding plans she was the first one to jump at being a bridesmaid! lol

    Oh, Neen, you've obviously got similar tastes to mine. I had the wild hibiscus flowers in glasses of pink champagne as a welcome drink at our wedding. Another little touch that all the guests loved! x
