Hi all,\nWow this is a massive change for me.\nSo, wellies and whips have been banned from the wedding. My horse has also been banned (I want to train her to pull a carriage for me and my dad to arrive in, but my FH has decided that he'd rather I got there in one piece).\n\nWedding is in March 2015, although we've been engaged for 8 years. Financially we are now in a position to get married. \nMy colour scheme is purple and red, I'm thinking about doing wine glass charms as favours so they can have purple and red beads on.\nWe think we've decided on a venue but waiting for a few different quotes. \n\nI'm not girly and I'm an introvert so a wedding is not my scene, so its going to be scary! We've tried to keep it small but immediate family comes to 40 for the day. A few friends and we'll have a maximum of 100 at night although probably closer to 70.\nThe budget is still small so most of it will be DIY which will keep me busy, and I tried my first dress on last week. It feels strange and shoes will hopefully help a lot, otherwise I'll be walking down the aisle, hitching up the skirt. :P Its also my mums dress, which does have me emotional. My sister has offered me her tiara so it looks like I'll be spoilt for choice for quite a few bits and pieces.\n\nUp to me, I'd have gone away, come back and told everyone we're now married but my FH has a lot of friends and it will mean a lot for them to be there with us, so I'm going to roll with it, try to have fun and see what I can do about becoming more extrovert. I may still manage to squeeze my wellies on under my dress, so I still look like me :D\n\nExpect lots of questions as etiquette bypassed me.
