Thank you

It really is time for an update!

Well, we now have our meals booked for the wedding day, the day before the wedding, and our first park day. All our couples meals will be in our third week so still have a few days before we can start booking those. So far we have:

Character breakfast - Princess at Akershus
Pre-wedding day dinner - Boma
Wedding Day dinner - California Grill

Meals to book are Artist Point (have already had this purchased from honeymoon registry by my grandad), Jiko, Fifties Prime Time Cafe, Citricos.

Luckily we're not too fussed about Fantasmic this year so aren't in any kind of scrum situation trying to book the dinner package!

We also have a Wishes fireworks cruise booked for the wedding night, boarding at 9pm at The Contemporary. This is for me, DF, my brother and SIL (who are Best Man and Maid of Honour), plus two friends.

I have my hair and make-up trial at home this Saturday and will be trying my dress and shoes on afterwards to get an idea of the full effect. I'm also trying to decide for certain whether I'm going to go for a tiara or not.

Invitations have gone out for our UK reception, and we're starting to get responses for those, which is exciting.

The things we still have to organise are spa-based for me, SIL and mum. Does anyone know how far in advance you can book spa treatments?

Phew, can't believe I left it so long to update again!

4 weeks to go!!

Whoops, went too long without an update again, and now here I am just over four weeks away from the wedding!!

Well, I had my hair and make up trial, then went home and tried on my dress. In these pictures it is too big round the bust, so forgive the gaping bits!













Since then I have found a new bridal shop to do the alterations (my original store closed), and I have my final fitting on Thursday.

We booked all our other ADRs, and I have booked the Sweetheart meal at Jiko as a surprise for Carl on our final night of the honeymoon. It is expensive but hopefully it will be a lovely end to the honeymoon. Plus, I'm always reading that the way to guarantee you have special things happen is to pay for them!

We've also been to see our co-ordinator at the hotel where we are holding our at home reception, and got confirmation on lots of details from her. Then we sorted out the balloons we are having at the reception for decoartion, and I found out they can do a balloon artistry bouquet for me, recreating my bouquet from Florida, and it should last about ten years. They showed me some examples and they were incredible! We are also having two four and a half foot tall walking characters - Minnie and Mickey, so that should help to keep the kids entertained!

I think that's everything for now - we are picking up the two bridesmaids outfits soon, so will post pictures of those asap.

So I thought I would post photos of our inspiration for our "sweet shop" - we are having this instead of favours at our UK reception. We are printing labels that say "A gift from the wedding of Jeni and Carl" and then my mum is cutting tags from orange on her Cricut. We will then attach these to paper bags and guests can help themselves to pick and mix sweets! We are also having a set of square cupcakes with letters iced on the top which spell out the message "For our guests."









What do you think? We have got a whole selection of different jars from IKEA, and are going to get a couple of acrylic martini glasses and ice cream dishes in the end of summer sales.

Thank you Torsie - we originally saw the Sweet Shop idea in Confetti (it was in their last brochure) and figured we could do it cheaper ourselves!

OK, I've got two lots of photos to post today, seeing as it is only two and a half weeks until the wedding now!

These are the pictures of me at my final dress fitting (some of you probably saw them on the other thread I put up in the main forum):





Obviously you need to imagine the hair and make-up this time!

Ans here are the pictures of my niece trying on her dress. She wasn't feeling well and wanted to leave her trousers on, so that is what you can see underneath She started dancing in front of the mirror when she put it on, though, and told us all she was a princess!





In this next one you can see my nephew in the background, and shortly after the photo he pushed her off the podium





I hope you like them! My mum also has one of my SIL in her outift but it hasn't been uploaded yet. We have photos of her at all the fittings but she was never smiling so didn't want to embarrass her by posting them, lol!

So, having seen the flower girl, here are pictures of my nephew, Josh, in his outfit:

Wow - we're now less than two weeks away from our wedding!

I was just thinking about getting my breakfast (boring cereal!) and then had a text message from my mum pointing out that next Wednesday we will be at Akershus having breakfast with the princesses

We also started packing on Sunday, but I'm waiting until Sunday to pack my wedding dress at my mum's. I'm putting it into the biggest sized hand luggage case I could find, along with my shoes, veil, and other bits for me for the wedding.

Then Monday I faxed our final signed BEO and payment details across to Tanis, and yesterday our currency order came - it is all starting to feel very real now!
