    So...first day back at work as a married woman! Still can't get used to my new name.

    The day was amazing - I'll report more when I get back off honeymoon (off to Jamaica on Wed. Weather was glorious, everyone had loads of fun. My mum left my bouquet in the kitchen! But luckily, I still had the fake one I didn't like as much. My ankle held out all day (thanks to some pretty strong painkillers!)

    Good luck to those still left - I'm sure you'll have an incredible time.

    Love your pics :D

    Well our day is creeping very fast!! Can't believe on Friday it's really happening!!

    Took everything to the venue yesterday and was asked if we had done a table plan! He had previously told us not to as we are having a buffet in the afternoon rather than a sit down meal but now we have decided to do a table plan! I spent 5 hours today making one from scratch and even if I so say so myself I'm mega proud of it! Lol

    We forgot to take the post box over so will be running that over on Thursday along with the table plan and table names when my car is dropped off and left at the venue!

    Off out tomorrow with my mum and bridesmaid for a lil pamper day, eyebrow waxing and nails etc so looking forward to that! Picked up the suits today too!

    I feel really calm which is a very weird feeling as I'm a terrible worrier! Haven't had any wedding nightmares since last week, I don't understand it lol

    lovely pic jellytot! Congratulations :j

    Well, we got back from the Maldives late last night and this morning our professional photos came back so I have had a great day of going through all my wedding and honeymoon photos which has taken my mind off the fact that our boiler has packed up and we have no hot water!

    We had a really compacted day because the ceremony was at 11am and we had to leave the reception at 3 in order to get home and get changed ready to go to the airport. There were some small hiccups - photographer went to our flat rather than my mums, my car didn't wait to have photos outside the castle after the ceremony even though we had talked about it on the way to the ceremony and I am sure we were supposed to get a bottle of celebratory champagne and we didn't! I got lipstick on my dress trying to get into the car and when we pulled up outside the registry office all the guests were waiting outside and I was freaking out because I didn't want anyone to see me :o. My friend who drove over from France got lost on the way there and I was petrified she wouldn't make it (she did!).

    My hair and make up lady was an absolute god send, she stayed with me right to the end and laced me up and made me all calm when I was about to have a panic attack. :rotfl:. The surprise ring bearing storm trooper went down famously, there were lots of laughs over that and my brother did a superb job of acting! Other half also loved the singer I booked and the venue really looked superb, as did our cake and all the decorations. Overall, we had a lovely mix of tears and laughter. I am really glad that I get to wear my dress again next weekend.

    A few little pics for you:








    I am a little disappointed with my hubbies family, I have found out one was moaning about the food, when I looked through the pics of his side his mum looks like she is chewing a wasp, we haven't even had a card from his sister and his parents didn't even give us a token gift which has made him feel a bit embarassed when my side put so much effort in but thats families for you!!

    Good luck to all those ladies still to get hitched!

    Very happily married on 10th April 2013 :D
