I know they aren't exactly what you were looking for but have you seen these? 37 each. http://www.clothingattesco.com/dress...ids-bridesmaid

Or there are just white dresses that look right for autumn as they have sleeves which are 27 http://www.clothingattesco.com/dress...ids-bridesmaid

This could make any white fit more in with your theme http://www.johnlewis.com/john-lewis-...?colour=Purple

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Purple-Belte...esmaid+dresses

This one is a little closer to the one you liked on your first page http://www.hellobridal.co.uk/pretty-...ss-p-2036.html

I love this one and to me it looks more Autumn/winter http://www.hellobridal.co.uk/beautif...ss-p-2869.html

Oh wow thank-you! Ahh the sash is a really good idea, I didn't think to do that. I might just get some plain white ones and buy a couple of sashes then to match my colour theme, can't really go wrong! xx

Good luck! I almost wish we had an small wedding, not that it was huge by any means. Less then 150 people is small here. But the hassle and arguments were hard. And I love the flower girl dresses with the pedals on the bottom

Getting a bit more organised now.. Church is booked, restaurant room is booked, have meeting with our local parish this saturday (as banns have to be read out there too), dress has been bought and I have booked my hairdresser for the morning of my wedding, as well as a week before for a trim and colour. I also just ordered some flower girl dresses from M&S. I'd looked at them before and they're gorgeous but the colours really summery for October.. one has a dusky pink sash, the other has the bottom half coloured in a light greeny colour.. but I just browsed on there again and the dresses are down to 12 and 17 so I've ordered them to see what they're like.

Also my wedding dress went down to 88 so we re-ordered it and sent my one back! May as well to save that money!

So what I need to do now is:

- Choose rings (probably go to town this weekend and do this)
- Order my little mans page-boy outfit and shoes.
- Find a suit to hire for my husband-to-be and buy shoes (probably do this when we get rings)
- Buy other bits and pieces (shoes, accessories etc.) to go with dress.
- Get cardi's/shrugs for flower girl dresses, shoes and accessories.
- Sort out a photographer.. thinking of using a family member or looking around for a student one or something.
- Sort out how I'm getting to the church.. really don't want to spend money on hiring a car but I can't think of anyone with a nice car to take me and my dad :/
- Decide on a hair-style and make-up.
- Decide on a day for Hen party.
- Book honey-moon.

That's it I think. Ahh less than 7 weeks. xx

We had our best man lend us his car, it was a pretty new mercury. Black and very nice. Do any of your friends have nice cars you could borrow?
Good luck I am glad its going well!

Have a look on eBay - that flower girl dress on the first page is the dress my LO wore to my wedding last week! I found it on eBay, brand new, for 10 including p+p!
I was a young bride too, 19 (nearly 20 though!)

Also, we used my Uncle's car, it's nothing fancy but it's silver and with some purple ribbon and balloons on it then it looked great! For the bridesmaids we used my Mum's friend's car, which was also silver.

Thanks ladies

Ugghh I have had some people on my OH's side kicking off about not being invited, it's a SMALL wedding with CLOSE family only for goodness how can you be offended!! Grrr. We've chosen to ignore it but it puts a downer on things.

On a more positive note my little man has his page-boy suit, 20 from Rocco clothing, and he looks sooo sweet. My heart melted! I also got my flower girls to try on the M&S dresses which were 12 and they fit nicely. They have dusky pink sashes on them that are easily removed so may buy some purple ones instead, not sure.

Still need to sort out the car thing though. I can't have my dad drive me because we're getting married on a Friday and it's market day in my parents town where we're getting married and quite busy (wishing we booked for a Thursday now, nevermind) and it'd be a nightmare to get a space. Can't think of anyone with a nice car though, may just hire a semi-decent car and get a relative to drive it maybe? Ahh need to think it through.

Starting to feel a bit daunted now it's September though.. next month I will be married. I will have a different name to one I've had for over 20 years!! So weird but exciting. xx

Getting married young doesn't seem as uncommon as I thought

Did anyone have the raised eyebrows and the 'aren't you a little young' comments. I mean 90% of people are really happy and saying 'about time!' to us but there's that minority who want to make our age an issue. But they're the same sort of people who raised their eyebrows about us having our son at our age and us being a little young for that.. and that worked out perfectly and we're so happy, so we don't take notice. xx
