I phoned the florist, recommended to us by one of our clients that we photographed at their wedding. He sounded well in control and we are meeting him at the Hotel where we are to be married on the 19th. He told me to make a scrap book of wedding related things that pleased me and bring it along...I'm not doing a college course am I? I suppose I could stick in it some fabric samples and stuff...I'll see what I've got in my wedding magazine, perhaps I should buy another one...or two?
I chose the fabric to make my dress and the three bridesmaids dresses and ordered it...I have to be in to sign for it on Wednesday...I am so excited about this but also I am jittery about the work involved. I am staying with Ali at the beginning of February and I intend to make the two little bridesmaid dresses whilst I am there, it makes sense as I can fit them as I go. I will cut out the pieces before I go to Devon...I'm not daft!
I also phoned the DJ about the disco for the evening and he is sending me a contract.
I phoned the Hotel but the girl that was the wedding organiser has left since I was last in contact and the girl on reception was rather vague to say the least and suggested I speak to the chef tomorrow....I wonder if I'll get some more positive feelings after speaking to him tomorrow. This Hotel is rather similar to Faulty Towers, scary eh?
Yesterday, Barry took me out for a drive as the sun was shining...we went to Rutland water, the collage above is a selection of the photos I took whilst we were there. If you'd like to see them in greater detail you could always click here
