    Think I mentioned previously that I'm having a boudoir shoot done for Ian's present... I got an 'outfit' today! :)

    It's from Agent Provocateur - the lady in the shop was so nice and helpful! Can't wait to tart around in it :lol:

    My MOH tried for weeks to get me an AP garter for my wedding, but it was out of stock.
    You're very brave doing this. There's no way I'd do one of those shoots!!!

    What a fab outfit, i'm sure you'll have a great time, I wanted to do one for OH for christmas but couldn't afford it but given that i'm into photography I had a go at doing one myself and was happy with the results and my OH was over the moon with the pics.


    Only bit of advice is relax and enjoy it!

    :)

    Wow that's brilliant!! :( I'm just hoping to not make a complete arse of myself (perhaps the wrong terminology to use here...)

    It's on Saturday - Ian knows I'm up to 'secret wedding business' but hopefully he hasn't guessed. I thought it would be a bit of a give away to go out with a big bag full of stuff, so I've been gathering things at work (as the place is just round the corner). So far I have my AP outfit, a sexy pair of red heels, and various other bits and bobs stashed away in my cupboard. Goodness knows what anyone would think if they discover it!! :)

    They will probably think you have a high class lunchtime sideline!!!! Shocking! :( Either that or they'll be dead jealous of Ian!

    It was AMAZING!!! :)

    Had so much fun, and it made me feel really good about myself which is nice. The experience started off with make-up which is a treat in itself - she did smokey eyes and it looked great. After that the female photographer (Alex - she was so lovely!) took me through to the studio and explained what we were going to do, and asked me to lay out my outfits etc. We chose which to use first - the AP outfit due to the difficulty of getting the waspie on and off!! - and so it began...

    It's quite odd being naked around someone you've only just met, but she was so nice and really put me at ease. And she has clearly seen it all before (and has taken part in shoots herself) which really helps. So we did lots of shots in the AP outfit, then some shots where I was completely naked :( and then more in my other outfit. I also used my trench coat as a prop - Ian always refers to it as my 'flasher mac' and now it's true!! :lol:

    Throughout it all, Alex told me exactly how to pose and what to do for a flattering effect. Some of it felt really uncomfortable and exhausting, but SO worth it. A side effect I wasn't expecting is that I've got a really sore back today from all the flexing and arching!!

    I got to see some of the photos afterwards, and I just could not believe they were me. They were incredible - the lighting and poses are just so flattering! Can't wait until they are all ready to see properly - should be 5 days or so.

    All in all, it was an amazing experience, and I would thoroughly recommend it. Ian is going to absolutely love it!! :D

    Got my second dress fitting tomorrow night (the first one being a waste of time thanks to the shoe disaster...) - will hopefully be able to post some pictures afterwards :D

    Had a meeting with the florist last night which was really good - I really trust them to do a good job, and it's so nice to know that I can just leave them to it. This is what we're having on the tables (11 in total):

    • Top table #1 (me, Ian, best man, bridesmaids and partners) - low floral display (the one we'll use on the register table), including a tank for my bouquet. Nothing quite like a bit of doubling up! :)
    • Top table #2 (all the parents!!) - 3 decorated tanks for the BM bouquets
    • 6 tables - silver coloured candelabras with circlet of flowers round the top
    • 3 tables - silver coloured candelabras with crystals hanging from the arms.

    The candelabras will all be on mirror plates with tealights on them. They will also double up as ceremony room decoration - stood on plinths either side of the aisle! :)

    I'm slowly working my way through the massive list of things yet to do...

    18 DAYS!!! :D

    That sounds fab!

    We are doubling our flowers up - our reception and my parents ruby party that is a week later, so hope the flowers will be ok going in transit for 140 miles! :)

    Love the sound of the candelabras, can't wait to see some pics when I'm back from Canada :)

    I finished altering oh's trousers last night so got to give them an iron and get him to try them on again. My dress box arrived yesterday too as I'm taking it as hand luggage, exciting! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

    Good luck with dress fitting number 2!!!!!!
