    Well I thought as its only 108 days I should really start my planning thread... so here goes....

    The venue is at Latimer house (well latimer mews but its on the same grounds and i cant find any pics of it right now but you get the idea!
    [​IMG]

    Our wedding invites were designed by the OH as he really wanted something tattoo realated that didnt cost a fortune (as a lot of tattoo stuff is now... i blame david beckham for making them trendy haha)

    [​IMG]

    So our colour scheme is black and white with a hint of red. For the reception we are having all white linnen with black chair sashes. We decided not to have traditional flowers on the tables so were having giant martini glasses filled with soft coloured sweets! yum! and black rose petals scattered below

    We are asking for money as gifts so we can go on a honeymoon when its not holiday season and expensive! so a funky post box has been made to put them in
    [​IMG]

    My dress is by madeline gardner and fingers crossed it will be in for me to try on in about 3 weeks so i'll post a pic of me in it when i do that. VERY worried about it as its been ordered in a uk size 4! i didnt even think they went that low! but here it is anyway along with my gorgeous Irregular choice shoes (thanks frogbitch for finding them for me a again!).

    My BM will be in a black dress but i have yet to meet up with her to chat over her dress... rubbish i know but she lives miles away and is a new mum

    [​IMG]

    I am having some kind of messy up do for my hair (my trial isnt until june but here are the ideas that i have shown her) and my make up i'm toying with having Audrey Hepburn, breakfast at tiffanys kind of style (all about the eyes)
    [​IMG]

    The OH and i are quite casual so we have decided on him having a tux with bow tie but keep the bow tie un done (very dean martin) sorry about the pic its the only one i can find haha
    [​IMG]

    For the cake we are having something similar to the pic below but the topping ice white and the casses will be in black 50 smaller size cupcakes and 1 huge one on a stand
    [​IMG]

    For the wedding favours we have having little black organza bags which will have everton mints and some red and white ones too so it goes with the colour scheme. Also in the bags are our little touch, temporary tattoos of the design in the front of the wedding invites and also a "finger stache" tattoo as we can have some great fun with the wedding photos with them! see pic to stop confusion!
    [​IMG]

    ooh nearly forgot, this ring is similar to mine and the OH is having the same but with out diamonds in between the roman numerals
    [​IMG]

    Phew, i think thats it for now! sorry if i rambled or there are lots of typos, i'm at work and rushing it a bit but otherwise i'd never get round to doing it! :(

    here are the table place cards, i just bought plain white ones as they are so much cheaper and stamped them myself... the OH is practising his caligraphy before he writes on them (even though we have spares) so no name on them but you get the idea. It keeps in with the old school tattoo thing too. sorry the pic isnt that great

    Love your dress, it's gorgeous, can't wait to see it on.

    I love your theme and how personal it is to you both. And I'm still super jealous of your post box, I think it's fab!

    Aw thank you, if I think about it too much our theme seems to be all over the place but I guess that's what we are really, a mixed bag haha

    I can't help thinking that so many parts of your wedding are similar to mine, but yet still so unique to yourselves.

    I'm also a little worried that as you come from Aylesbury, that you may have been witness to my only (and very drunken) attempt at karaoke a few years ago.

    If you ever frequented Bar Sol in the days of Hearsay, I may owe you an apology !!

    I'm loving your planning! I'm feeling a bit peckish having looked at your cakes hehe. The finger tash is excellent! Also loving your hair ideas :)

    (Mmmm Mr Bond!)

    Argh! having a complete nightmare! As alot of you know our wedding was being paid by a house sale, my OH put his house up for sale in september last year and it still hasnt sold! Even if it sold tomorrow we still wouldnt have the money in time! we needed 8k! yikes! so we have managed to get a loan of 5k (a miricle in itself as we have bad credit) so we will be trying to make cut backs here and there, selling the car (get a grand if we are lucky) masses of over time at work ohew! knakered at the thought of it! 83 days to go! it will be done!
