So, I went to look at dresses. Traumatising!! I tried a couple on but looked like a whale so am aiming to get at least three stone off before I go again. I felt and looked huge! Im approx a size 16 (which is the UK average I believe ) but the type of dresses that I like did not sit well on my figure at all (I carry nearly all of my excess weight around my hips), hence why I want to lose weight before I go again. I could have tried things on that would be better suited to my figure but those types didnt take my fancy at all. Operation diet, ahoy!
I have booked a DJ (woop!!) and he also provides loads of different stuff so have booked our twinkle backdrop (like a white curtain thing with fairy lights in haha) to make it look nice behind the top table and behind the registrar when we get married. Also booked some uplighters to match our colour scheme so that the room will look all lovely and blue in the evening!
Changed my mind on the photographer we were gonna go with and have scoured around for another that I like that has good prices and have eventually found a great one with great prices. We are booking the photographer from bridal prep right through to first dance and then once that is all done he will be doing a photo booth for us in the evening That should be fun!
Also, today I have booked a caricaturist who will come just after the speeches to fill the gap before the dj starts at 7pm. He will be there for two hours and will be doing caricatures of as many guests as he can fit in in that time! I originally wanted a magician but thought this would be better as people get to take home their own drawing.
I bought some bargain second hand foam flower bouquets, plain white, and have bought tons of amazing things to bling them up and make them match the colour scheme! Lots of tulle to make flowers with, brooches, beads, pins....so exciting!
If I carry on like this, the whole wedding will be planned by the end of the year so I need to slow down.
Wow, sounds like it's shaping up to be a great day Lou! I hope we get an invite.
I love the photo booth and caricaturist ideas! Brilliant!
Don't be afraid to try different styles of dresses though - often, brides find the style they were looking at/liked the best/thought they'd look best in really isn't the case, and the dress shop assistants will suggest a few styles you'd never given any thought to before. Trust them if they suggest something you really didn't think would suit your figure, because it probably will!
