This one has been big in the wedding planning department.
After our positive post last month about our bridesmaid dresses, we went to order them and guess what - they were sold out of our colour!! We chased for weeks to find out when they were getting more in, to no avail. So we got our girls on the job. Received links to so many different dresses from our bridesmaids, which was so lovely they were so excited to help out! We liked a few, though not quite as much as the ones that were sold out... then magically right as we were ordering a fabric sample for one of them, our dresses came back into stock, and we quickly bought all six then and there. Phew! So now they are on their way to Mum's house, hopefully ready for when we arrive in a week's time, when we can bring our UK based dresses back with us!
We met with a florist over Skype, who we really love, and who hopefully will come to our site viewing with us when we are home. He was so excited about our vision for the day, and had a lot of creative ideas (including a possible floral headpiece for Laura!) - we can't wait to see all our gorgeous flowers!
We received a sample menu from a potential caterer this week, which we couldn't be more excited about. As you know, we LOVE all things food - so we'd put a lot of thought into what we would like on our menu, actually wrote it out on the car ride home from Lauren & Sarah's wedding, and the caterer really brought our ideas to life! We get to do a menu tasting when we are home, which will be so exciting. Potentially, there are three types of desserts, all gorgeous and with different berries in them!
Finally, we have our makeup trial on the day of our engagement session, which will be great to help us look better in the photos, but also to give us an idea of what we want to look like on our wedding day. We've never gotten professional makeup done before, and are not generally very good at it, so hiring a makeup artist is a must for us. As well as hair - we are not very girly when it comes to those things!
|This is what we'd look like if we did it all ourselves - yikes!|
One week to go until we are HOME!! Seriously just can't wait!!
