Is it JUST me who is staying in, at home, just me and h2b on New Years Eve......?? We are drinking lol.....if that makes us SLIGHTLY less boring!!!! And i have a 5year old asleep upstairs so thats another excuse :o

Don't hide - add yourself to the list......what we save tonight, we can spend on our weddings!!!! YAY!

Here is a question for us all -

*If you could afford ANYTHING and your budget was unlimited, what else would you be having that you aren't due to financial restraints (go as crazy as you like lol!)

I would have a chocolate fountain (cant justify it cos we are having 3 course meal, evening buffet and wedding cake lol!) and i would have fireworks.....i would also have a bespoke cake (i am an m&s girl lol) - i would also make little changes like having free bar for everyone lol, upgrade the menu a little bit (tho i love our menu!) and i would probably have a few treats like vintage, bespoke, handmade shoes and also have a better hairdresser than i shall be able to afford lol and also a makeup person!!!!!


So??
Baldrick, does it have to be this way? Our valued friendship ending with me cutting you up into strips and telling the prince that you walked over a very sharp cattle grid in an extremely heavy hat?

    Evening! I am in, 12yo and hubby to be with a tummy bug means he is not even here due to my poor immune system! But I have wine! Yay
    Money no object??.... The only thing I would change is having a dress hand made for me to my 'dream' dress. Love the one I have but my dream dress is a bit bonkers all red velvet riding jacket and full ivory skirt!
    :rotfl:Ahahah got my signature removed for claiming MSE thought it was too boring :rotfl:
  • I'm working early tomorrow so the OH and I are seeing in the new year at home with a few white russians :D

    If money was no object for me I think I'd have to agree on the free bar! :p

    Everything else we've sort of covered and we're happy, we're having quite an MSE wedding in terms of outfits, rings, cake, invites etc (I'm also an M&S cake bride!) because we just feel theres no need to go crazy to have a lovely memorable day :) We're buying things bit by bit as we find them on offer etc and seem to be gathering things up nicely! Roll on Jan 2011!

    Happy new year everybody!

    Ahhh yeah - i remember you saying before about your riding jacket dress - sounds lovely and i can TOTALLY imagine it in my head too!

    By the way, if my posts get less easy to understand, all i can say is alcohol :A

    I would love it, but know my limits!! We would never have a free bar even if money no object as future FIL has a drink problem (although 2nd glass of wine in, I may too tonight LOL)

    OOoh! I had a look at your mood board when you posted it, I forgot to comment! Lovely scheme! I was going for muted gold but you've inspired me to add a little olive accent :D

    Our venue actually suggested the M&S cake, they're a big hotel but very honest with money saving ideas etc, and what they said most brides tend to do is buy the 3 tiers, and then get a wide ribbon that tones in for around the edges, and a little spray of flowers for each tier to match the bouquets and just set them on top? It seems quite classy. So I might have the florist make 3 mini bouquets (or indeed, get silk ones) and just go with that. OH seems intent on a mini wedding couple for the top though...! x
