    HI All!

    Just thought I'd introduce myself before I start jumping in posting!

    I'm Vikki i'm 29 (I get married before I reach the big 30) & I'm from South Wales, but I live in Leicester. I Have been with H2b for just over 2 years (2 years & 10 days to be exact)
    We met in the June of 2008 and I moved from South Wales to Leicester in the Septemeber 2008.
    We have been engaged since November, and have set the Date for June 11th 2011 (so when we get married we will of been together 3 yrs and 1 day!! )

    I don't have any kids but I do have a lovely stepson who is 6 going on 40! & a gorgeous step daughter who is 16!
    We do have a house rabbit called Alfie (who has one ear up and one ear down)

    I have just been offered a new job as well, & this new job will give me every weekend off plus extra money. (so more time to plan)

    I'm feeling like i'm very slow with my planning and booking etc.
    We have booked the venue & the band!

    But err nothing else!

    I want to make as much myself as I can! Athought i'm very slow in the planning at the moment I have started to make my wine glass charms for the reception. (ok so I have made 6 out of 100 to make, but I suppose it's a start)

    I do have lots of ideas, and every night when I get home from work I get a case of verbal diarrhoea when telling my H2B all the ideas and probably bamboozle him with so many lol

    We know our colour theme it is going to be Blue, White & Silver

    I know how I want the save the dates & the invites I just need to get my bum into gear and get started!

    I think I am so slow as I don't have my mum near to help me with things and I know she wants to, although my Sister in law & mother in Law to be are very helpfull and are looking forward to making and planning with me!

    I haven't even looked at a dress yet!! (ok a few pics i've looked at but thats it)

    Well thats enough of my babble for now!

    Looking forward to chatting to you all and sharing ideas etc *waves*

    Vikki xx

    A huge hello and welcome huggly from all of us here, the others will undoubtedly be along to welcome you soon as long as they aren't in their gardens sunbathing on this rather lush sunny day!

    You H2B is welcome on here if he so feels the inclination to be surrounded by lots of wedding-addicts all completely bonkers! Not sure if this is every mans dream or nightmare!

    Anyway, lovely to have you on here :)

    Hi! Hooray! I'm not the newest person any more! I'm getting married about 3 weeks before you and after an initial flurry, planning seems to have ground to a halt. Must get back on it x

    Hi Vikki, welcome to the site! You are very good, I didn't introduce myself, I got a smacked wrist (only joking).
    I think you'll like it here, everyone is helpful and supportive and maybe just a little mad, he he!
    Yep, definitely want some pics of your dress and planning when you can!
    Congratulations on the new job too :D

    Hi!!!

    I lovepink wow 4 months to go!! I bet you sooo excited!! I know I am and I have just under a year lol!!

    I Love the name alfie (think it was from alfie moon in eastenders)

    Thanks... The job is an Area Channel Executive (posh name but its not lol) I bascially travel round covering leicester/nottingham setting up POS & training staff!! But I get a car etc so I can start saving some money that I spend on petrol insurance etc Cant wait to start and each morning dont want to go into work.... why do I have to work my notice lol!!! However on the up side I cant get told off for using the internet now, so thats how my day is spent getting my wedding fix each day browsing...... yet to still browse dresses.... not sure why I dont seem to look at them??? Oh and reading wedding mags all day as well..... when ive had enough of looking at the screen!! (still kind of not take much notice of the dresses)

    I took the photos tonight of the charms I have made but cannot find the lead grrrr
    which is a pain as i painfully went through my wardrobe tonight and took pics to put loads on ebay to put for wedding fund!! (however I have yesterday & today brought more clothes hmmmm not sure how thats a saving for the wedding):D

    Guest list hmmm need to work on that one too lol soooo not organised!!!

    Again thank you all for your lovely welcome and sorry If I havent replied to what someone has said i start babbling and forget!!!! he he!!
