aww Pinky, how beautiful!!!!
Carla - so sorry to hear you were so sick on your Hens night, but glad that you had fun anyway.
Sorry girls haven't had a chance to read up on everything but wanted to come in and post my pics from my dress fitting today. They are not the best pics as MIL is totally stupid using the camera. LOL
Just ignore all the pins if you can see them, took photos after she finished hemming/alterations. Also ignore the hideous bandaid on my arm lol the pins kept stabbing me and I had a little blood.
I still need to go to the solarium/spray tan as I'm too damn white.
Back - sorry didnt really get a good pic of my train.

So what do you think? I was so scared that I would try my dress on and hate it as I haven't tried it on since May but I still loved it.

Pinky - what gorgeous shots - no WONDER you are so pleased
Candy - delegate delegate! I got a PROMPT responce on RSVPs by telling everyone my Mum would be calling those people who did not respond!!!!
Night all - finished the OOS which I can (ran out of cord - can't get more until Saturday) but they are quick and easy to put together and look GOOD!

xbuffyx - I'm loving your dress! I really like the colour The lace on your dress is just beautiful I'm sure by the time the dress is done, it will even be more stunning I was a bit worried about my dress too, after not seeing it for so long. But yeah, I still love it
Puggie - well done on finished your OSS! You are soo organised! Your wedding is in late Nov, and mine is in early Nov and I haven't been nearly as organised as u have! Well you know what that means - we want pics of them now
Candy - how are your RSVPs going? Trust me, we're having the same problem. Our RSVP date just passed last Sat and on Mon, I had to ring around and ask people if they were coming or not. Some responses were... "Oops, of course we're coming", "Oh I keep forgetting to call you...", "You don't need a RSVP, u know we're coming"... hmmm.. people don't realise that we cann't just make assumptions and assume people are coming!
I went to a dress fitting with my BMs for their dresses and the dresses are coming along nicely. I love what my dressmaker has done with the dresses, very simple but elegant and sexy at the same time I will have to post pics in a couple of weeks at the next fitting. We finally got shoes for them all (4 of them) and boy, that was a hard task! It's hard coz everyone has different tastes and trying to actually get 4 of them in stock was a challenge too.

Pinky - ur pre-wedding shots look so beautiful!!!! u guys make a lovely couple and u must be very happy with how they all turned out...they'll look just as good if not better on ur wedding day!
Puggie - good work on the OOS, u seem to be powering thru all ur weding stuff! i wish i had the time to start putting a dent in mine.....unfortunately work is being a right royal pain and demanding all sorts of crap! grrrrr
Candy - We were in a very similar boat with our RVSP's too.....we had stacks of ppl to chase up and i just gave the list over to mum and got her onto it and amazingly enuf 2 days after the rvsp date ended we got everyone confirmed!!!! and i agree with Puggie - delegate this task out to one of the mums and get them onto it - it works a treat!
Buffy - ur dress is gorgeous!!!! i love all the detail on it, looks beautiful and u look pretty spunky in it too!!!
not much wedding related to report for me this morning....been busy with work and crap to worry about the wedding....oh hang on i think we decided on our menu last nite but i woke up this morning not liking what we chose so i may have to go and talk to H2B.....sheesh here we go again....
have a day girls!!!!

Puggie - pics of your OOS books please???
For those doing OOS booklets, how many are you doing? I'm not going to do 1 for each person, probably just 1 per couple or have them in a basket at the front as you walk in or get 1 of my friends to hand them out too whoever wants one. But I'm thinking I might make about 40, people can share and its not like everyone would want to keep them (much to my dismay).
Pinky - glad you found 4 pairs of matching shoes. I'm so glad I'm only having 1 bridesmaid, soooo much easier (and cheaper! lol).
Jules - lol ahh just as well its a womens prerogative (sp?) to change our minds.
We havent even looked at our menu and we have our meeting next thursday to finalise everything.
I was meant to be going out today but those plans got cancelled, so I might try and get some place cards done and I need to do 2 more invites for some last minute inclusions. Its so hard trying to get things done with a 16 month running around, so have to wait till he's down for his nap to do things on the computer.

Reason for 52? Well it was to be 60, but the store only had 52 pieces of the right coloured card

LOL makes sense to me puggie! AND less work for you.
I've decided I'm going to do them double sided (if I can figure them out and align them properly). So will be 4 pages double sided. Better get my act together H2B is stuck with cutting them for me and has already said he doesnt want to be up at midnight with only a few days to go. Knowing me I'll get fed up with them and decide not to do them anymore.
I cant believe I only have 3.5weeks to go!!!! Thats 24 days!! OMG

So they emailed it through, but didn't take the names of who bought what off Was pretty annoyed at that
Anyway - once I got over that, I (of course) took a look at who has bought what for us
WHAT A SURPRISE! A friend of the family who I barely know has spent a considerable amount of money, whereas an uncle I see regularly has spent very little.
I actually don't care whether people spend a lot, little or nothing, but I am BLOWN AWAY by how generous the majority of people have been! It is really embarrasing
For instance, for the amount of gifts which had disappeared from the list, I thought A LOT of people must have already purchased gifts. This is actually not the case - only 7 people/couples have bought 13 gifts so far

How did you go this morning?
Natural drug free labour.

Carla - make sure you post pics of your candles!

You just inspired me to call the travel agent and see if anyone has put into our registry yet. I'm doing better than you only 1 couple has contributed so far!! LOL (I asked who, but not how much).
She said she finds most people tend to do it the week of the wedding, we dont have a closing date on ours, so all is good.
How annoying though for you that they have stuffed up the registry.
