We stayed at Pop last year as well. They probably will end up there but just want to find out all the options for them.

Parents & Out-Laws

So last weekend we travelled up to see my Mum, Dad and Step-Dad to tell them we are engaged. My Mum and Step-Dad realised it would happen soon so it was of no surprise and are happy for us and know the Disney plan so all is good. We then went over to my Dads to tell him, and he didn't seem to be interested, it was all very strange, I thought he'd go over the top and want to go straight to his church to book a date. The next day he was a bit more interested but still asked no questions about the wedding. I shall wait to see what he says when he rings me next.

Then last night the future in-laws rang, we were chatting and they asked if we had thought about the wedding yet, so I eased them in and told them we'd decided to go abroad and told them our reasons, they didn't say much and when I passed the phone over to DF they didn't mention it again. We will be seeing them a week on Saturday so watch this space to see what happens next on the Parent front.

The Dress Maybe

Also at the weekend I went to try on wedding dresses for the first time. I went in 3 shops, the 4th was closed, and made an appointment in the 1st to try them on later in the day. I tried on a few but only liked one and its a serious contender for The One, this is the dress...





(Meryll, I'm sure you'll like it)

I think I'm going again this Saturday to some other shops so we'll see what happens.

That dress is gorgeous Claire!

I am sure your dad & the in-laws will quickly come round to the idea....some of my family wasn't too keen at first when we announced that we were getting married in the Bahamas but they were soon onside.

That dress it really beautiful. You will make a beautiful bride. Don't worry about your Dad. I'm sure he's not wanting to lose his "little girl". Dads are pretty good for coming around. My ex wasn't thrilled at first, but since he's not paying for it, he says he will be there. And your other side will come around too it they know this is what you both want.

Have fun planning. Can't wait to hear more later.

Speaking from experience Hun, do it your way. I used to want to run away to get married, but Robert's mum went mad when I said that and said she would never speak to us again if we did it. I don't want to run away anymore, but thats not the point. It's not their choice to make. It's hard to keep everyone happy, but, with your wedding, one thing I've learned is that nobody elses happiness is more important than that of you and your fiance..... I mean, Robert's family had a huge row with us because we don't want to serve alcohol at our wedding. We almost gave in, but then we thought: "No, it's our day!"- So all I'm saying is don't let anybody change your mind!! If it's what you want- Go for it!!!

Oh, and I found another link for you, hope you don't mind!!

http://www.foreverbridals.com/

There's some lovely dresses with the sort of neckline and straps you like!! I'm not sure if they're good for travel but they look very lovely..... It's hard to pick just one, isn't it???

Everything sounds perfectly lovely!! I love that first bridal hair picture!! I don't normally like 'bridal' hair, but that is absolutely gorgeous!!

Now a very important question- What sort of cake are you having!!???

Honestly, everything sounds fab and lovely and wow!!! Good luck with all the further planning!!
