I can't believe how close the wedding is now, it's quite scary. We got the cake last week (Gav's in charge of that, i've not got a good reputation with cakes!). All the chair covers have arrived, the bows arrived yesterday and i'm trying to decide whether to tie them all beforehand or leave them until the Friday night before!! We have so many friends travelling here on the Friday (from Leeds to Portsmouth) we're having an open house through the afternoon and a get together in the evening so we can say hello to them properly. It's all very very exciting.
We have a final meeting with the caterer on Tuesday to tie up all the loose ends and then it'll be all systems go, with initial hair appointments, crash diets and most of all, a massive effort to clean the house up so it's ready for visitors.
I bought a very pretty, delicate shrug/bolero last week to go with my dress, it's a lovely cream lace and looks so nice on my shoulders with long bell sleeves. I wanted Nicci to have one in black to go with her dress and got her to try mine on to check for size....at which point she burst into song and an Abba impression, saying all she needed was the platform shoes!!! there's no hope.
