Today my dress arrived home with me!

Well with 3 weeks to go, today was my last fitting for my dress. We let it out slightly around the bodice so I can eat! Lol, and put a few hidden bustles on it for the train at night time. It fits perfectly.

I totally LOVE it!

I can't wait to be able to share it all with you, now though my hard part begins.....not opening the bag!!!

With only 3 weeks to go! Yes you read that right, only 3 weeks to go! My Favourite photo this week needs to go to my venue.

In a few shorts weeks we will all be sitting on this terrace looking at the mountain views and listening to the noise of the river in the distance.

I can't wait!!

Amazing offer

My amazing wedding planner, Lisa from Bella weddings in Spain has come up with this Amazing offer

I think that having a wedding in Spain during our normally very unpredictable winter months would be a great idea and for this price I think it would be amazing!

If you are even thinking about a wedding abroad I would recommend you really do look into it and for this price jump at it!

**I am not being paid to recommend Lisa but without her the wedding of my dreams would not be happening and my stress levels would be through the roof!

1 Month

Words can't express how happy I am to see this picture on my blog!!

Images from google images.

We have reached the one month mark - how did that happen so quickly?  We haven't had an extremely long engagement (only 10 months) but this has flown past! In 3 weeks time we will be getting ready to fly over to Spain to begin our week long wedding celebrations and I can't wait.

Finally I am marrying the love of my life and this is all that matters.

I joined Blook club!

Anyone who knows me, knows that I love to read a good book and now I have ventured into the realms of a blook club (bloggers and books = blooks getit!)

The lovely Zoe from  This lovely site! came up with the great idea and even designed the lovely button that you can see down the left hand side of my page.

I missed the first one which was held yesterday due to having to do to work and by the looks of it I may have to miss the next one as it will probably be planned around our wedding date but I am going to make a point of going to the next one and am still reading the suggested books and really enjoying it so far.

Thanks Zoe and here's to Blook club!

The box is packed!

Well we have reached another milestone.  The box is packed with all our wedding bits and pieces and is ready to make it's way to our lovely wedding planner, Lisa in Spain.

This is I suppose another down side to having your wedding abroad - trying to figure out how to get it all there and having to limit what you want to bring with you as well.  You do of course have the option of hiring a decorator over to Spain to do all your bits and pieces for you but after spending so long making things I really wanted to carry the diy theme on to the decor of the reception also so ours is all getting packed up and posted over!

We weighed up bringing it all in a suitcase but when you priced extra luggage allowance on the lovely orange airline it is a lot cheaper to box it up and send it by DHL or some other courier company.  We are very lucky to have a lovely wedding planner who appreciates my diy approach and is allowing us to post our items to her (not to mind the stuff I already left there in April)

On another note, my dress is currently being altered.  I loved loved loved it when I tried it on again and it just needs some slight alterations to the bodice and a bustle hoop put on it and we are dandy.  I am back again on the 30th September for the final fitting and then back to collect it on the 14th October all ready to fly to Spain.

I can't quite believe how close we are now, only 5 weeks on Friday until the actual wedding and 4 weeks until we head out to Spain.  I keep having to remind myself to take that week of when I am calculating anything as we really won't be able to do that much planning that week!

This weekend

Yay it's Friday!

Well this weekend, starts some of the madness of the wedding planning.  H2b is off on his stag weekend tomorrow to Liverpool (God love Liverpool)  My Hen night is in 23 days :-) and we are both really excited.

My plan whilst H2b is hopefully not damaging his liver to much, is to get the menus and another batch of the mass booklets finished.  I really need to start thinking ahead about sending some things over to Spain soon, so anything requiring DIY will need to be finished sooner rather than later.

My other really exciting thing is that I am finally going to try my dress on! It has been in the shop for a while but my Chief Bridesmaid really wanted to see it with me as she didn't mange to make it to our shopping trip so we are off to see it on Sunday. I am really excited about seeing it again and have lost the few extra pounds that I gained since finding it so am keeping everything crossed that it fits and that I still like it.

I think that I have reached the start of the exciting part, it really is not long now until the wedding - 49 days or 7 weeks today.  There really is not that much more to do (once I finish my DIY projects) Wedding presents are starting to be bought/arrive and it feels really nice.  I keep thinking of how things will be once we are married and how it will feel to finally call him my Husband and to be honest, I can't wait.  Yes there has been some stressors along the way and I am sure we will have some more in the run up to the wedding but overall I have enjoyed it and I looking forward to married life so much.
