5 days to go - 09/07/12 - 12:07pm

After a busy weekend we are pretty much sorted now.

Terri's dress is here (in a cover so I can't see it), and we had the final meeting with the florist and the stationer on the weekend for the table plans etc.

The only thing we haven't been able to sort out is the weather, so can everyone please keep your fingers crossed!..........


17 days to go - 27/06/12 - 11:12pm

The rings have arrived, personally delivered to our house by Malcolm the Jeweller - top service!

Another great stag/hen evening last weekend thank to our Neighbours :-)

This weekend we get the cake and go and see the Photographer amongst other stuff....

Well we have sorted our first dance song finally - didn't expect it to be so difficult to choose something!

If anyone has any requests for good tunes for the evening, get them entered on the site here using the 'Request a song' link, so we can get them over to the DJ.

If you are still planning on coming along and haven't RSVP'd yet to your invite, we'd be grateful if you can let us know as soon as possible.


Honeymoon - 17/01/12 - 9:03pm

Well one of the most important parts is finally sorted!, we booked the Honeymoon last week and are now off to Mauritius for two weeks on September 1st....Can't wait....

Update - 29/10/11 - 8:45am

The latest update is Terri ordered her dress last month. It is being made by a well known (not to me!) british designer and will be ready for fitting around 3 months before the wedding.

The adult bridesmaids dresses are all sorted, as is the ladies hair and make-up for the day.

We have given notice with Solihull Registry Office, and we now both have our certificates for marriage to send off to the Worcestershire registrars.

One year today - 14/07/11 - 9:27pm

This time next year we will be married!

We have now booked the registrars and confirmed the ceremony for 14:00, and also the musical entertainment for the day.

503 days to go - 28/02/11 - 9:40pm

Still seems like a long way away. We've got the Venue booked, and sorted the Photographer(s) out a couple of weeks ago so not bad going so far. Terri is looking for her dress (the most important thing obviously!) and wedding invites as well.

We are going to a wine tasting at the Redhouse Barns on March the 2oth to taste some wine and meet various exhibitors as well.

The first draft of this site is done, just needs a bit more content and tidying up now.
