20 days to go

OK .. so tomorrow is the 1 August. My wedding month!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I cannot believe how quickly it has come around. I am told that the day goes extremely quickly anyway so maybe I shouldn't be counting down and making bringing it on quicker!!! lol

Purchased the remaining bits and pieces that had to be done on the weekend so other than dress fitting tomorrow, I'm done!! All that's left to do is pack my bags and get on the plane.

Sarah had her fitting with Min on Saturday and the dress looks really pretty. We found some lovely shoes for both Sarah and Min that go beautifully with the dresses.

Sarah looked gorgeous and looks so grown up. Will be fantastic to see her with her hair done professionally.

So all in all .. it's coming together really well. Keep fingers crossed that in the next 20 days there is no hurricaine on Daydream Island and ruins everything!!!!

Freak me out ... 3 weeks to go ....

until we board the plane for the Whitsundays!!!

Have decided not to print Order of Service books so that's one less thing I need to worry about.

So ... left to do:

1. Purchase shoes for me and Sarah
2. Purchase jewellery
3. Purchase white material for aisle
4. Finalise music for ceremony

That's it!!! Can you believe it??? i certainly can't. Getting REALLY excited now.

Picked up my dress from dad's on the weekend and have looked at it every day - I'm such a dork. Actually tried it on yesterday and while I haven't lost a stack of weight, it certainly sits a lot more comfortable than it was. The dress maker shouldn't have too much of a difficult job as it's just around the boobs that it needs adjusting - taken in can you believe!!!!!

Darren is coming now (which is great) so we have the family and the couple of friends that we wanted. Only person that is missing who we would have loved to be there is Tracey but given her state of pregnancy, we can sure understand why she can't fly!!!

34 days to go

Freak me out!!! 34 days to the wedding.

Only 30 days until we fly to Airlie Beach though .. how cool is that?? Well, won't be very cool at all .. will be quite warm in fact!

John chose his wedding outfit on Saturday with the help of Bill (God bless that man). He has chosen a brilliant outfit and will look extremely gorgeous in it!! It's very 'John' ... long shorts, white shirt and sandles. Nice and casual (which is VERY John). Haven't seen Neil's outfit but the way Bill described it, it is going to look fantastic as well. SO excited!!

Just over a month to go!

Man oh man ... 41 days to go until the big day!!!

OK .. so things done in the last few weeks:

1. Vows and ceremony structure written and sent to celebrant - waiting on him to review and go over with us

2. Melinda has purchased material (finally!!) for her dress and has started to make it. Sarah's dress has been measured and she has started the alterations for that as well.

3. Order of Service books drafted ... few minor touch ups then need to print.

Things still to do:

1. Choose music for ceremony
2. print out OOS booklets
3. Buy material for aisle on the beach
4. Work out what is happening with the rings!!
5. Not panic

Yes I'm starting to mildly panic ... not overly, but just keep thinking of little things that I need (like do I need to buy a pretty knife to cut the cake???!!!). Who knows these things!!

The wedding co-ordinator on Daydream Island is pretty hard to get hold of so am getting a bit worried about that as well.

Anywya .. deep breaths. it will all be fine

Visited Dad the other day and popped in to say hi to my dress. God I love it :-)))
