    I think we might have to gatecrash, it all looks amazing - if we can't get there we definitely need plenty of photos! [​IMG]

    You load of ratbags! To be honest, if you lot turned up singing Elvis and dancing to Thriller then you'd fit in well as Ben and I belong to a roleplaying club so there is every posibility of a load of orcs and goblins turning up complete with weapons! If you think i'm joking... pics can be found here by clicking on the gallery page.

    Ben was considering dressing in kit for the big day but has agreed at least for 'smart' kit.

    It's kind of sad to not ever meet some of you so maybe we'll have to beg Becky for a Big Day social event sometime in the future when we're all married. I guess that wont work as it's sooner for some than others but it's a lovely idea. We need the Big Day veterans section! That way we don't lose you all :angry:

    Awesome. You'll have to put your wedding date back as it's most inconvenient to have it so soon when the wedding fayre is after the wedding! LOL OMG you sooooooo don't have long to go! Hurrah!

    I know, it's gonna be here before I know it, I have got so much to do......
    Doesn't help that Jakob has now got the pox, although it does mean that Spence has had to go sick from work again as I still can't lift Jake at the mo! I think Spence is secretly pleased though as he's meant to be on nights :angry: !
    I won't need to put the wedding back love, I will probably still buy stuff, lol! Anyway, it means we can concentrate on you!

    Hey popplemeister, what an amazing find for your venue. Just a thought, it's usual for most hotels to provide a certain number of discounted rooms for weddings guests. evil plan : Why not just say to people that this is the case with the manor house. Tell the people who you'd most like to be staying there that there are X number of rooms available at the venue at the discount price of eg £50 and they can have first dibs. if they want a room say you'll book them all together and get them to put the £ in your account. That way they'll be made up to be able to stay somewhere so lovely, and also convenient for the wedding at such a low price, and you get to avoid any awkwardness asking people to pay. We recently went to a wedding at a golf club - nowhere near as nice as your venue - and paid £115 to stay overnight. £50 would be nothing.
    Although maybe you are less willing to deceive your friends and family than me :blink:

    Im liking the gatecrash idea ladies. That really is an amazing bargain poppleminster. The hotel we are hoping to have our reception at is giving us as many discounted rooms as we will need so i think people will have to pay about £60 for a room, it helps it is a small slightly out of the way hotel and golf club according to H2B.

    We all have to try and meet up one day it would be great to talk to you all in person.

    Come on ladies, if we all put our minds to it it's doable (another new word for the bigday dictionary me thinks!)
    I think it would be wicked fun though!
