OK, it's time to get started on this report. We have been back from our magical trip for just over one week and we are now back to reality, and work, though the excitement doesn't end here, we are having a Luau party at home next month to celebrate with family and friends, so I have plenty of new "projects" to work on!!!!!!!!!! I did start a thread last year after our engagement and once our wedding was booked, but then hit a "hitch". I was scared to post anything I had made or planned to do as I didnt want it to spoil the surprises should the rest of the wedding party read it. So I think the best way to start now is to give a quick rundown of my plans. Let me just say that the wedding day was everything we hoped it would be, and more. If I had to plan everything again there is nothing I would change. The hitches along the way were minor ones and yes there were a few stressful moments BUT the sun shone, the Gods looked down on us and we had the most perfect start to married life anyone could wish for...........

She arrived to the minute we arranged and made the whole experience of getting ready fun and relaxing. I would recommend her to everyone. Brides spa day; the Mandara spa, Dolphin resort. Expensive, but enjoyable and the end results were good, my pedi still looks good even now. Dress steaming, Carolyn allans - Ok, but when I phoned to see if I could change my appointment time, they had no record of my original appointment, even though I had the conformation email in my hand!!!!!!!!. Also, I did find a small snag on my dress as I was about to put it on and had to get the needle and thread out quickly ( no mean feat with acrylic nails ) This may or may not have happened during it's steaming, but I certainly hadn't noticed it before.
