4magpies is getting married [15/12/2013]


Bit of a whirlwind.

We got engaged on our first anniversary and will be getting married on our second.

We have a venue booked, we have a meeting with a photographer this Tuesday and decided on invites/stationary. Save the dates are in the post on the way to us. We have decided on a colour scheme/theme.

Bridesmaids and best man have been picked.

So basically it's just all the little bits in between to sort now.

Oh and my dress.

One of my bridesmaids is actually on here and getting married herself this year (aly888).

Just need the money to pay for it all now.

Just thought I'd start one of these to keep everything in one place.

Feel free to stalk and chat.

I've got a lot to do in not so much time and I'm a bit crap at wedding stuff as I didn't even know there are different shapes of bouquet! Haha!! (Thanks for that Aly!!)

Means I get to keep it happy and positive unlike my other journal. Haha. Welcome London.

I've just messaged a lady on Facebook that makes customs garters. Pretty!!

Just waiting to see how much.

And I think I want blue sparky shoes.

I'm thinking I should get married in flats as then I'm not taller than J. But I love my heels! Pah.

I'm wearing 4 inch heels. Haha!! So I'll be towering over A, but I'm not wearing flats on my wedding day. Makes me sound like a diva and I'll most definitely regret it by about 1pm on the day, but I walk like a right man in flats. Haha

Oooh, which lady? Lauren25 got hers off FB and it's gorgeous

Love you, Norff xxx

I think I will be wearing flats on my big day as I keep having nightmares about tripping in my heels and tearing my dress! lol! Or maybe just really small heels I have found some that I love! I probably should really since J is 6'2 and I'm 5'5/6 lol! Good luck on your planning, its very fun if you don't have a MIL like Aly's (though mine is also the impression we will have ''spare places for her friends'' - I don't think so!!) xx

I think I'll get a pair of flats and heels so I can switch it up. Aslong as my dress allows me to do so. I'm 5ft 7 and j is 5ft 9 but I like my heels high. Haha.

I'm lucky in the fact that my MIL is lovely but she is insisting on inviting J's cousins when he hasn't seen them in ages/doesn't really like them. We aren't even inviting uncles/aunts from my side of the family and she wants them to stay over night at our venue (there are only 14 rooms). I want non essential people staying close by. Not at the venue as that's more for our nearest and dearest.

Garter is from truly I do.

I'm having this same issue with the hotel, they only have like 15/16 rooms and OH's family are booking up 6/7 of them when they live 10 mins away - all my family are going to have a 50 min drive to our venue. But I guess there's nothing I can do about that, there's another hotel 10 mins away so they will have to get taxis. My MIL thinks it will be nice for us to all have breakfast together in the morning - sorry but that's not happening either lol we want breakfast in bed xx

My family live about 3.5 hours away from the venue. J's parents live about 30 minutes away but we both have family coming from all over.

The majority of my family have to stay in the hotel as they're paying for most of our wedding.

I can't believe we are I'm February already and how close it actually is.

We decided the other night that we are going to get all our decorations/centre pieces from the range. Went to have a look the other night and there was some lovely stuff.

Oooh awesome Lauren. Which one did you go for?

Is there anyone else that's done their own bouquet?

I have just spent about 30 mins punching little hearts out of card for table confetti. They're so pretty. If I work out how to upload pics from my phone ill put some on later.

Also went over room allocation with the inlaws today again and all sorted. Just can't wait to see our tog on Tuesday now!
