So this week has been quite productive wedding wise.
Band – We have booked the band that my friend had at her wedding. Means we have heard them before and know that they can keep the dance floor full all night.
Photographer – After a long and painful argument we have finally settled on a photographer. O’s brother’s girlfriend’s Dad is going to photograph our wedding.
Invitations – we’ve received samples from here. Gaynor, I basically searched your invitation posts and looked through your suppliers so credit to you. A colleague at work showed me her son’s wedding invitations and they are basically exactly what we want so we are waiting on supplier recommendations from them.
Kilt – O has ordered his kilt we just need to find the rest of the outfit – jacket, waistcoat, brogues etc.
Hen Do – invitations have gone out and we’re narrowing down activity options. My hen do will be a very relaxed affair, I don’t drink very much so it won’t be a wild party.
Florist – I’m in touch with a florist and we are arranging to meet up.
Dress – I’ve booked my first dress fitting. Yes it is very early, my dress hasn’t even arrived yet but I was warned that the seamstress gets very busy so best to at least get an appointment in the book.
Bridesmaid dresses - #2 went and got more silk choices and I’ve decided to go with a darker blue instead of the silk that was bought in India. Hopefully we’ll be able to sell on the other silk.
Ushers – my nephew is our only non-Scottish groomsman and as a 13 year old English boy he won’t be wearing a kilt (or skirt as he likes to call them). My parents were babysitting last week and have bought him a suit for the wedding. We just need to hope he doesn’t grow too much now.
Tomorrow I’m going to try on my dress again so I can start working on
underwear and jewellery.
Feel like we have achieved a lot this week and got some big things ticked off the list.
So ladies tell me what I've forgotten or should be doing next.
