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!!

We will certainly be doing what we want and I know our parents would want us to do that really, it just might not be what they thought it would be.

Feel free to post away. I like this dress from that website, very unusual back:

Thanks, it is still my favourite. Hopefully my Dad will continue to be laid back, its not his normal style!

It was over twice the price of the first one and less comfortable. The second one I tried on had a rounded neck and lots of beads all over the top half, too much for my taste and a really long train. I loved the long train but it was very heavy, which made me remember that the first one was quite light really which I think will be important. It showed also that I do suit a V neck better as well. The third one was very different, very simple plain skirt, no train and a lacey top. I thought I'd hate it but it was quite nice, no wow factor though and the most expensive! So the first dress is still my favourite.

Future In-Laws

We had dinner with Mike's parents on Saturday night. While I was in the Ladies his Mum asked him about the wedding, she seemed to think that they weren't invited and got a bit emotional. Mike assured her that they were invited if they wanted to go and that it would be in Florida, to which she said they just want to see us get married where ever it was. So hopefully that means they are ok about it.

They're lovely dresses, and they have loads of stockists. They're also very budget friendly......

Glad the Inlaws seem to be ok with it, do what you want Claire, as DH and I gave in to family pressure and had our wedding here.
we have always regretted that we didnt get the day we wanted. (about to make up for that with our 10th anniversary trip though )

Hi, I noticed your thread on the show your wedding dress thread and thought i'd have a nose- hope you dont mind but i love looking at wedding stuff. I've enjoyed reading your plans so far- i love the style(maybe not so much detail tho) of the second dress you posted on post 30, i think its really beautiful.
I've been with my Bf 7 years and we're tallked about getting married, i use to be set against getting married and had no interest in it whatever but the last year or so i dont know whats happen becuase i've made a complete turn around loool.

Look forward to seeing more of your planning.

I always wanted to get married but it was when we hit 7 years that I really felt the time was right and couldn't wait any longer.

Can't plan anything else yet so i'm in waiting mode.

I've just caught up with your PJ. I have to say the first dress you tried on is so gorgous. It suits you perfect. I think that when you try a dress on you know it is 'the one'.

I am also only having a few people - 9 including me and DF.

Can't wait to read more of your wedding plans

DF and I were chatting about the wedding last night and cursing the fact we can't book till 8 months so not till April 30th which is still over 7 months away and also what we would do if we couldn't get our time/location. I think first option would be the day before instead then the day after then either the 1200 time slot or the 1700 time slot instead of the 1430 one we want. If I couldn't get any of those 9 options (I know very unlikely) I think I'd save the money and have it at the Swan/Dolphin instead.

We will be seeing my Dad and Mike's parents again at the end of the month when hopefully we will tell them the plans in full and then see if they mention an at home reception.
