I found some possible stamps for the invites (well the non-international ones). I liked the idea of using older stamps, but it is just too fiddly. These album cover ones come out in January and we would be happy to use most of them on the envelopes.

The design classics stamps could add another layer of 'London' to the thing.

Both our mum's managed to buy their wedding outfits last week, and so very nearly bought the same thing! It was something I hadn't foreseen, but should have guessed would happen.

We had said to both of them to keep their eyes open for things, and not to worry too much about the other as they shop in very different places usually and wouldn't pick up the same things.

It seems that it is all ok, and that, although they have their outfits from the same shop, they are not the same - but will instead co-ordinate, which I think is the best outcome we could have hoped for.

Giant games

I had an idea that we could get some outside games for people to play with before dinner. Obviously this is only fine if it is not raining, plus we're at a museum, so we quite fancy just going for a wander in there. J wants a photo with Mr Walrus there - he's huge, the walrus I mean - it's over 100 years old.

I think the choices, if we bother, are dominos, stacking tower and connect 4
Ebay seems to have loads

Something to think about...

Dress first glimpse

J if you are reading - GO AWAY!

I had an email from my dress pattern cutter saying my pattern and toile were almost done, plus some photos!

It really brightened up an otherwise rubbish day

Bridesmaid dresses

My sister did good and sent me a nice long email packed full of dress ideas which were exactly what I was thinking and with litttle prompting!

She only looked at one site: Dessy, so all of these are from there

I'm hoping that the bridal party will look a bit like this:

Gift lists revisited

After conducting a straw poll amongst our friends and asking our parents to do the same, we came to a simple conclusion - just go to John Lewis

It's the sensible option, everyone can order from them, and there's no issue with people being offended by being asked to contribute to a pot rather than choosing an item.

To do...er...done

Well gosh, yesterday was a bit busy in terms of ticking things off the list, and I hardly lifted a finger!

  • My mum was knitting my shrug and kept calling me through to check the sleeves were the right length
  • My sister has a surprise she isn't doing very well keeping quiet about - it's something to do with a guest book, so one less thing for me to do
  • My brother has a box of umbrellas stashed away
  • I now have the font we want for our invites, J wrote text for the invite inserts and we know what size they need to be. I'll spend the next couple of evenings on photoshop sorting those out
  • I have created a full, nothing left off to do list, with deadlines - just to stress everyone out. I just need to buy some sticky fixers to put it up now
