wedding planning so far…

Monday, September 20, 2010

i hope everyone had a FANTASTIC weekend!
i want to SCREAM when the first thing out of EVERYONE’s mouth is (not just from family & friends but also from strangers):  “how’s the wedding plans going?” … aaaaghh what am i suppose to say? it’s horrible; i haven’t done anything… what…so my answer is normally:  good, slow, but we are getting there.
i get it that it makes it more difficult because i am (sorry, we are) planning this from the UK & getting married in south africa.  it is making it more of a challenge than if i was in sa.  but with everyone asking me (how it’s going) i’m getting MORE stressed out because it makes me think and feel that i am not doing ANYTHING.  SO i have decided to update you guys regularly from now on.
this weekend was quite productive we bought & ordered wayne’s wedding band & also his trousers (or pants for all the south africans) AND i also got my gorgeous veil.
wayne’s wedding band is from a swiss company (Furrer Jacot) – the metal is palladium – image below

the trousers we bought are grey (more charcoal colour) but i think it looks pretty amazing

WOW this is the looooong list of things to do when getting married!  i REALLY hope i didn’t forget anything.  the 2 MAJOR things that i need to look at and get DONE as soon as possible are the music & videographer.  the rest is ‘smaller’ things that can be done later on.  OH except the invites – that is the MOST important thing that needs to be done & finish this ASAP.
hope everyone has a FANTASTIC day & week!
today’s photo of the day is an old photo i found of wayne attempting to give my cat (strepies) a shower (i know it’s not a real cat (it’s a bagpuss…before you wonder about it).
