My future mother in law has said this morning that because we are not having top-hat and tails she will pay for the bridesmaid dresses, i think this only goes for the kids dresses but thats still awesome coz it was them that i was worried about!

Amy, no matter what anyone says - stick to your guns, coz once you have one bridesmaid it bloody escalates and it never stops! :lol:

I know what you feel about having like 12 bridesmaids!


I picked 3, my best mate and my fiances 2 little sisters, but now EVERYONE wants to be one :/

I might just be like if you want to be a bridesmaid go for it, but you have to buy your own dress and shoes haha

Although I'll end up with around 10 :/

I keep being told that I need to have Paul's cousin (all 6 girls!), my sisters (2 of them), my cousins (6 of them). I told everyone that it'll be mine and Paul's day - not anyone elses!

You decide who you want Cherry, if they don't like it, they don't have to show up ;)

Congratulations :D

I shall warn you now though - dont get over excited and ask the whole world and their sister to be your bridesmaids! :lol: :lol:

And also, be prepared to stare dreamily at your ring everytime it sparkles and be surprised how pretty public toilet lighting makes it look. This will last for atleast 2yrs (im at almost 3 and it still hasnt worn off!)

at the moment..... 12 :shock:

I have 7 who i picked and then the rest are my OH's cousins little girls who i have ended up with because his younger brother (who is getting married in august) has NOT asked them to be bridesmaids and this upset his mam so my OH agreed to it :roll:

On the plus side though his mam is going to pay for the dresses so its not all bad!

Just be very careful, its a slippery slope! :lol:

Originally me and the fella were planning a small registry do at the local town hall with just a few witnessess and then a piss up in my usual pub, but i've since found out due to a long lost relative i'm coming in to some unexpected money so i figured i never intend to get married again so i may as well go the whole hog with it. So its a posh place and i'm even having a big wedding dress. My problem now is how to do my hair. the colour scheme is cream olive and chocolate brown. i know a full head off kk dreads will annoy me all day so i'm planning on thin cream roving dreads with the olive green and chocolate brown accents, but i want a proper updo with them not just tied back out of my face. Any ideas?
I know the problem with having so many people you want to add as bridesmaids, so far i have y best friend and the fellas two little sisters. but then theres my half sister and 4 other really good friends i want to have as well i just dont want to over do it though. so far the fellas best friend will be best man my son and my best friends boy will be page boys but then theres the fellas two brothers (and who ever else his mum is fostering at the time). hmmmm not good, i dont want to leave people out but then i dont want to have more stress and the more people = the more stress *shrugs*. At least i have 2 years to get it all sorted. (i know it seems early to be thinking about it all but if i can get most of the planning done and out of the way its less to worry about as it gets closer).
I'm also thinking of having a candy buffet. A place nearby does topiary trees made out of sweets.... i already have a chocolate fountain... Problem is i cant decide if its too tacky or not for the place we want to have it in (A huge 17th century hall that until about 20 years ago was owned by the Queen). I love the idea of it but things could get very sticky very fast, especially with my son anywhere near it.

Loric, just have as many bridesmaids as you want and get dresses that are slightly cheaper. I got really lucky, i found 3 of my 4 adults dresses in our local paper. Brand new and never worn. They only cost £90 each. I then got the same colour but slghtly different style for my sisters(maid of honour).

I only (ONLY?!) have 11 bridesmaids now. I wanted my cousin but shes just started planning her wedding and is having loads of bridesmaids but has no asked me. I wasnt that bothered but my mam and sister were livid about it and insisted i get rid :roll:

I had one. A girl I worked with wanted to be one too, she asked if she could have MY dress in a different colour. I was not polite with my response. Also, a friend I hadn't seen for 2 years that I randomly bumped in to about a month before I was getting married asked me if she was still a bridesmaid (I'd never mentioned or asked her to be one - note the not seen her for 2 years :roll: )

On that note....I've been married 9 years in January.

Congratulations to all those recently married and engaged.
I got married 3 years ago. We had the traditional wedding at church (that was my hubbys request, Im not at all into that, but as I had everything else my way I let him have that one). I did as much as I could myself gto reduce costs (I made all the invites, table decorations, favours and got my dress 1/2 price in a sale) and I shopped around like a maniac finding the lowest prices. Im glad I did, as we had an amazing day. Although over in a flash.

I had my hair natural coloured on the day, with a mass of great lengths pre-bonded extensions in.
Here is one of my fav piccies. I don't really like photos of myself, but these ones I quite like. Although looking back at the wedding now, the dress was slightly "gypsy wedding" as it was quite big. Loved it though.

My husband and I got married about 3 years ago. I always imagined this totally unique wedding with me in a white latex buckled lip service dress and crazy colored hair and all kinds of things...but when I grew up and got right down to it I changed my mind, wanted my wedding pictures to be timeless. Here are a few pics:
