    Oh were do I Start .........[​IMG] Well... we are both getting married for the second time on July 15th 2011 (both got married /divorced young so its been awhile) I didn't want a big do, just Me & Him would have done lol ! managed, much to friends and family's sulks, to narrow it down to thirty guests! But we are having a party once back of honeymoon for all the sulkers [​IMG]


    I was quite happy to run away and get married but Steve wanted his brothers there etc. etc..... so we picked ,,,,after a few visits to a few places,,, GRETNA GREEN ! fancy two 40yr old's running off to Gretna lol ...........Not the actual place its self .... its a little busy for my tastes .... The Mill Forge .......fell in love with it straight away, we stayed over and joined in a reception at night ...had a great time[​IMG]

    All booked at same place .hair/make up being done by lady in my room in morning.. wedding with minister at 2.30 ... 'breakfast' at 4.30...... Disco at night !

    Having a sage green/Ivory theme

    Flowers ordered - have Apple green orchids in bouquet with matching button holes etc., matching cake decorations and the such ....
    Made the save the dates - invites favours etc. myself (doing traditional almonds with a lotto ticket in little pillow boxes)
    The cake is from M &S .........just a simple stacked two tier which I'm decorating with orchids and sage coloured ribbon
    Dress to be ordered next month (still looking for shoes) picked some twinkly pins for my hair but still pondering about having a flower in my hair (think its a bit young for me lol)
    Steve's yet to find a suit ???
    Photographer is my friend who just happens to be a professional photographer and is doing photos as our gift
    Having tungsten rings - not ordered but picked (unusual as they look almost black)

    Erm think that's it .... not much else to do except sort the paper work nearer the time, getting quite giddy now .........cant wait .......[​IMG]

    Wow sounds like you're all sorted! Is that a pic of your Venue, it looks lovely. I'm not far from Gretna so might come and gate crash (lol :)) only Joking.

    Just double checked the date you're getting married and you are super organised, well done - just like me!

    Congratulations and welcome to the site - not sure if I have said that yet.

    It all sounds great but we need some more pics! B)

    xx

    Hey Kath, welcome to this lovely friendly site. It's lovely to hear about everyones plans.

    You are super organised and your day sounds like its going to be beautiful. Love your venue, that will make for some stunning photos. Agree with Amy above tho - we need lots more pics esp of your dress - you skimmed over that one far to quickly!!

    Oh, and flowers in your hair would be beautiful - doesn't matter how old you are. I love the natural, relaxed look that it would give you. Congratualtions on getting maried and welcome again xxx

    Sounds lovely, we almost went for a sage green colour theme until I went crazy and decided to do an Alice in Wonderland theme. The green looks gorgeous though.

    OH no.. it was a bit out there though!! The bride had long stripy socks and a short bustier style dress! Her hubbie had a mad hatter outfit and full make up on his face (he looked ace!!) Try looking up pics on chanel 4 website, you could scare hubbie!

    All the guests came as characters and had fancy dress outfits. then they had oversize icecream cones etc etc.. They dont appear to have a reception as such just a few drinks so it was only really the wedding ceremony!

    Yes! Love the dress, and the hair pics too. That dress will let you get away with some serious jewellery. Any ideas?
