This way I could carry it around with me and look at them every once in a while. I got a much better view of them this way. You could really see what it would look like on your body and what your wedding photographs will look like. It was also nice to have a picture with me when I was shopping around for accessories.

I also like the first gown out of the two you are looking at.

I will definately try to take photos.

Everyone likes the same dress for once!

This is gorgeous!

I may be slightly biased given that this is my dress :

Yes I love your dress as well. My Mum however when I showed her didn't like the pick ups, thought it would be too much as I'm so short and should go for something simple.

Off to stay with our friends for the weekend shortly. We will be telling them that we are engaged and asking them to be Best Man and Bridesmaid. Hopefully they will be able to afford to come. Will update you Monday.

very impulsive, which doesn’t bode well for our credit cards!

Hi Claire, just found your Journal. Subbing!

Your plans look great - I love the first dress too. Can't wait to hear what happens with your friends this weekend, I bet they will be really excited & start saving to come with you.

Well we stayed with our friends at the weekend and asked them to be our best man and bridesmaid and they both said yes and seemed really excited. Hopefully when they see the price they won't change their minds! Need to find ways to keep the cost down for them. Does anyone know anything about the Discount the Swan & Dolphin used to do for teachers, is this still running?

I'm glad you friends were so excited to be a part of your day. I too am doing everything I can for my friends to keep prices down. But- I'm getting married at DL so I can't help too much. Good luck finding discounts!!
