I am hoping to God it's going to be OK
Nov 20 2006, 07:00 PM
I don't think there's anything I can do - other than send me best wishes. Honey - that's so frustrating.
I was going to post about how angry I am with FH's friends because of their behaviour yesterday, but that is nothing compared to dress frustrations.

I should feel blessed - I can get it on - it fits. It looks *^%$ed but heh - at least I HAVE a dress. But that doesn't stop me being heartbroken. I look at all the lovely brides and my heart breaks.
Why don't I deserve to be one of those?
Nov 20 2006, 10:07 PM
Congratulations Mazz and Marissa!!!!!
I would love to talk about your weddings, in fact I think when December/January hits we should all get together online for a big chat.
But for now..I have to say ta ta! For I am 5 days out from my wedding and have a busy few days ahead! So I will not be back until December 15th ish to catch up with you all.
Thankyou for being so wonderful to me since this thread began. It has been so great to share the excitement with you all.
I look forward to talking to you all when I get back.
Nov 21 2006, 08:00 AM
I am back and married!! Hehe - I will post pics when I get back from honeymoon - along with the story. Amy thank you so much for coming down to my house on Sunday. It was so good to see you. Thank you also for taking pics - if you can post them online that would be great!!
Everyone loved the way the OOS was set out too - THANK YOU BEAUTIFUL AMY!!!
I read your post about your dress - honey, i hope the alternate dress maker can fix it!!! I am positive that you will look stunning on the 25th! I will be taking a break from honeymooning to check for pics
Harmonie - I want to see pics!!!!!!!
I hope u had a wonderful day.
Good Luck to all the girls getting married this weekend - Amy - I will be thinking about you on saturday.
Nov 21 2006, 09:19 AM
Candy - good luck!!!!!!
Girls I have posted pics in the newlyweds section!
I am going to post honeymoon pics soon too!
Nov 21 2006, 11:38 AM
that's terrible to hear Amy, i hope it works out for you.
Candy goodluck, look forward to when you get back.
Mazz saw your photos, love the honeymoon ones.
I just did my newlyweds post too, but it is the photos that you have already seen, don't have anymore at the moment.
Nov 21 2006, 12:59 PM
An all day dress fitting and the dress is back looking PERFECT. I still cried (out of sheer bloody relief) but the dress came in another 2 inches at the waist, the coat came in at the shoulders and waist and all of a sudden I no longer look 30kg heavier
Original Dress - did not fit at back but looked good. That is me wearing it.
Nov 21 2006, 01:15 PM
The larger dress AFTER the original alterations. Sorry about no head - I was crying SO HARD I didn't want you to see it
I don't a pic of the dress after today's alterations, but it basically looks exactly same as the first pic

Nov 21 2006, 01:28 PM
Good Lord sounds like I have missed a few dramas since I was last here and I haven't caught up yet but wanted to pop in and wish the late November twinnies a great time.
Many things about our wedding had to change at short notice due to the weather and at first I was disapointed but after a few family dramas since then I've got some perspective and realised that it really didn't matter at all. You girls have done all the planning you can, so my very best advice is to relax and enjoy the day as it's over far too soon and if things aren't exactly as you imagined you are still marrying your man. My husband's family has been through a lot in the past 2 weeks and when times are tough I just look down at my wedding ring and am so glad we are married and I really draw comfort from that.
So ladies - organise what you can then sit back and enjoy yourselves. It may seem to you that not everything is perfect on the day but it's great to hear your friends saying what a fabulous time they had! Enjoy it girls - you deserve it!!!!
Nov 21 2006, 01:28 PM
And (saving the best 'till last) the lovely Bride herself.
Cheeky Monkey - you looked STUNNING honey - I am so honoured to have been your reporter
Nov 21 2006, 02:55 PM
cheeky monkey - what a stunner.
and puggie - if the dress looks half as good as the sample you'll knock them dead. thanks for sharing the photo of the non-fitted dress. I understand your concern. It skirted straight past your great bosum, and didn't fit properly across your womanly hip. You looked amazing in the sample, and you'll look stunning on the day, I'm sure.
Nov 21 2006, 05:19 PM
Yeah Puggie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Im glad it all worked out
Nov 22 2006, 06:45 AM
Wow - it really IS getting quiet in here!
I am off to get napkins, fold them, write a 3 page paper and generally get stuff happening prior to tonight's rehersal.
I am still on a super dooper high from having the dress problem resolved
Today is a GREAT day
Nov 22 2006, 07:30 AM
Hurray Puggie sounds like dress disaster is averted and the first piccie looks FABULOUS!
Enjoy your last few days - it is nice when the running around is done and all that's left is pampering, relaxation and enjoying your special time with family and friends. It's nearly time - how exciting!
Nov 22 2006, 01:58 PM
Sniffing armpits.... Pretty lonely in here. And I believe I was promised this WOULDN'T happen?!? Where are my twins????
Nov 22 2006, 02:34 PM
I'm still here with you Amy!!
Are you excited about your BIG DAY????
Where are you going on your honeymoon (sorry if you mentioned it already)...how long are you going for?
Nov 22 2006, 04:20 PM
I'm still here. In fact, I think I'm on the forums more than anyone! Just not an awful lot to say after the wedding. It was just so exhausting and stressful (although wonderful) that my brain has kinda shut down. I think I'm going to start on thank you cards soon but I need to buy a dining room table first otherwise there's nowhere to sit and spread my stuff out.
Nov 22 2006, 06:59 PM
I'm still here too!!! Just dont have a lot to say, I'm all weddinged out!
I have my days where Im depressed because the day is over!!!
Have to start on Thankyou cards soon and do some research on where we are going on our honeymoon.
Amy so glad to hear you got your dress all sorted out!
Nov 22 2006, 07:08 PM
I am back and finally married! I have to say the day was better than I could have dreamed and all the planning made the day run perfectly! I am sitting here with the hugest smile and yet kinda sad its over - I would do it again in a heatbeat and not change a single thing...
I will write up a thing in the newlyweds bit and add some pics - but they are on mums computer!
The highlight would have to be the doors opening seeing Paul at the end of the aisle and all our friends and family with huge smile (and heaps of flashes!) walking up with dad. Reaching Paul and seeing him with tears in his eyes... For some-one who doesn't cry it meant so much... I thought I would cry as I stood at the back of the door I was a little choked up but when the door opened I couldn't wipe the smile from my face!
The day was just perfect... The reception was amazing and the weather was a little hot but made for a beautiful evening...
I cannot wait to see you all and hear of Puggie's day so we can all celebrate together!
It has been great to hear all about your days and I must say your girls are all gorgeous! I cannot wait to see more pics and hear more info on the day!
Paul and I are now cleaning the house (which has been put aside for a few weeks now~) So must go but will check back tomorrow!
PS I am so glad your dress worked out Amy - When I was reading I was hoping you had had all the dress dramas one girl needs! Good Luck and I will be thinking of you - actually thinking of dropping past the church if its okay - what time?
Nov 23 2006, 04:51 AM
Of COURSE it is OK!! It's 4pm at Newman College. If you need directions, email me and I'll send you a map (including parking!)
Today am finishing off that paper and hopefully getting marked off as passing my Grad Cert. Keep your fingers crossed for me, ladies!
Rehersal went well
Nov 23 2006, 06:59 AM
Poor Puggie don't fee lonely we are all still here and wishing you the best of luck.
What on earth are you doing up this early? Get some sleep woman - it'll be a long day!!
Nov 23 2006, 07:40 AM
Hehe - I have cleaned the house - my sister is arriving today. I can still see the mess (sheets not clean and crisp on our bed, need to do the dusting) but she's not the world's best housekeeper, either, so hopefully it will pass muster.
Still working on this paper...
Nov 23 2006, 08:13 AM
Puggie, i love your dress, it suits you perfectly!!!
i can't wait to see your wedding.
yeh it's quiet hear, i m around now that my honeymoon is over, going back to work on monday, boho me!
Nov 23 2006, 12:15 PM
About to have my examination! Please send good thoughts my way
Nov 23 2006, 12:52 PM
Good luck with your exam Amy!
Harmonie welcome back
Glad your big day went well and can't wait to see pics.
Carla - that's a shame you have to go back to work.
Jess and Maiko - I know what you mean about not having much to say. After the wedding and honeymoon stress, I just don't have anything to say on here either. I was around all the time pre-wedding. I am now starting to get all back to normal again though.
Jess - what sort of honeymoon do you want to go on? Are you bringing your baby? Daydream Island was excellent for couples and families, and not too expensive (around $300 but we really went all out, and did alot of shopping - we could have comfortably spent only $2000).
Nov 23 2006, 06:17 PM
I PASSED! They made me do an extra 2 pages
but it's DONE and I have PASSED!
Also had my bestest mate over today! Was SOOOOOOOOOOOO good to see her
Am ALMOST relaxed, now
Nov 23 2006, 07:56 PM
Glad to hear you passed Amy! Well Done NOW you can try and relax as you have 2 more sleeps to go!
I go back to work on Monday! We were going to go away for a few nights (no long honeymoon for us
) And I thought the week off to relax would be nice - But we haven't had time to relax! Taking the suits back, cake stand, collecting stuff from the reception returning the hoop taking my brother to the airport! Oh well maybe this weekend will be nice (although I am booked for a special occasion at 4pm Sat!
I watched a home video of the wedding and it feels like AGES ago! I am hanging to see the pro shots and get some blown up!
Has anyone changed their name? Whats the go? Do I just ring around everyone??? I am thinking the Marriage Cert is enough and I don't have to go to Births, Deaths and Marriages?
Oh I wished we all lived in the same area and could have a HUGE luch/dinner to discuss all the wonderful moments and memories!
But What am I going to do with my time now? I will be bored at work no longer surfing the net working on my budget and chasing up things! On to TTC maybe a bit earlier! Although its funny how many of our ards mentioned hurry up with the juniors!
Oh well Everyone have a great night!
Nov 23 2006, 08:15 PM
A VERY quick one from me. We are having an amazing honeymoon!!! I got sent some pics - every one I have a stupid expression on my face!! And can only save one to photobucket, so here it is:
We arrive in the UK on Monday to my friend's place who was at the wedding and has a computer so should be able to load some more then!!!
PS I LOVE being married!!!
Nov 23 2006, 08:25 PM
This place is addictive! I am glad you had a wonderful day you look like you were having a ball! I wish I was on our honeymoon! Go and enjoy and do post from the UK if you get time!
To Seedyem, Candy and of course Amy GOOD LUCK this weekend if I do not get back on here! But I think I shall - Will try and post pics!!!

Well here we are the day before and I have not much left to do but pack things up to go to Mum's tonight. I am rather tired, but am hoping to have a pampering day today (might book in to get my nails done)!
Nov 24 2006, 07:28 AM
Well i'm back from my honeymoon (not a great way to finish it off, pete and i both got food poisoning or something on the flight or at the airport before the flight!!!! Were both sick as dogs yesterday afternoon to last night!)
Anyway, enough about that!
I just want to congratulate all of you that were married while i was away (can't wait to see some pics.....Harmonie!! hehe)
I also wanted to wish the final three all the best for their weddings this weekend!!! Puggie i should be at your one. Can you please email me a map of where it is?
All the best, i'm sure you will all be stunning brides and i can't wait to see pics from you all!!!!
Nov 24 2006, 10:50 AM

Nov 25 2006, 11:19 AM
All the best twinnies!!
Nov 25 2006, 12:56 PM
hey harmonie, to change your name on a bank account or passport you need the certificate from births deaths & marriages, i just filled in a form on their site & faxed it with the copies of id they needed, should be in the mail next week.
hey millie, i love your dress.
don't worry, i have recieved a few pics from friends & i didn't realise the unhappy face i had or weird look i had on my face, i love this one for example, yes i was at the church, just about to step in & the photographer looks like he is taking a photo of me. Yet, what the hell is that expression on my face?!!!!!
Nov 25 2006, 01:10 PM
Looks like nerves to me Carla. For a large portion of the morning before seeing TJ I felt like I wanted to throw up.
Nov 25 2006, 01:21 PM
Btw, I just posted a thread in General about my florist.. if you girls could give me some feedback I'd really appreciate it.
Nov 25 2006, 06:32 PM
Jut replied to post Maiko. I think good one you for stating your case! the letter is well written
Nov 25 2006, 07:03 PM
Well I just wanted to say that I made it to Puggie's wedding to day and all i can say is 'WOW' she looked stunning, the church was beautiful, the car was gorgeous and they looked extremely happy together!!!! Congratulations beautiful!!!!
I will put up some pics for her when she approves them
Nov 25 2006, 09:09 PM
Amy you looked gorgeous! And wow did Sean look excited! I am honoured to have witnessed your happy day and look forward to seeing the pics!
Kylie it was fun discussing stories and I cannot wait until our meet!
Oh and I finally posted in the newlywed bit - Got some pics included!
Maiko I am sorry to hear about your flowers but I think what you wrote did need to be said - Let us know what the outcome was!
Thanks Carla I have changed a few things! It makes it so offical and I think Paul was happy I was in such a rush!!! He even came with me - how cute!
Well girls I can't wait to see more pics - And what do we do now - Will everyone still pop in to chat about life in general I don't want this little thread to end!
Nov 26 2006, 12:57 PM
I'm back - it was PERFECT - I was THRILLED to see Harmonie and Kylz there and I am still on an almighty high!
