We are 19th May and have met with our Vicar a few times although they were meetings arranged by me as I wanted to know what was happening. The Vicar himself is quite happy to leave everything until a month or so before. I am a stress head though and wanted to make sure we had everything we want in the service - and as I'm making my own orders of service I wanted a little bit longer than a month to make them in!!
We are pretty much all sorted, just to make my invitations and other stationary but otherwise all main things are booked organised. My dress arrived at the beginning of Dec - yippee!! But have decided to wait until Jan to have my first fitting as I want to make sure I've lost all the weight I'll no doubt put on over Christmas!
I think its definitely a grooms perogative to be so laid back, my OH wouldnt have even thought of getting measured for his kilt if I hadnt mentioned that maybe it should be done soon - we eventually went a few weeks ago so that was my last major tick off my list.
I cant believe how quickly the last few months have gone, I'm now worried that the next 5 will also fly by and our big day will be here before we know it. I am very exicted and looking forward to it but also kind of enjoying the build up and preparations and so dont want the time to go by too fast.
Far2calm - I made my favours, wine glass charms, one of the first things I did as it gave me something focus on and stop driving OH demented with wedding talk!!
Cant believe that in just a couple of weeks we will be able to say we are all getting married this year, not next year - scary!!!
Happily signed up to life as Mrs S since 19th May 2012
