Hi Cabra :wv . I'm a fellow January 09 bride. People keep telling me the year will fly by....but I'm choosing to ignore them. I want to enjoy my last year as a non-married lady....ha ha ...only joking. I'm seriously not stressing about anything. What's the point? I have BM dresses and FG dresses picked out...just have to order them now. Church/Priest booked. Notification sent to state. Pre-Marriage course booked for April 12. Got my dress on Ebay of all places. Going to buy rings in June/July. Friend of mine is doing flowers. Hotel booked and deposit paid...obviously! Band and DJ booked. Photographer is my sisters brother in law. Will buy suits for H2B and best man/groomsman in the autumn. Booked Marie Hickey for my hair Doing my own make-up. So...all is going well and nothing to stress out about. How about you? **** Edited to say I've booked Marie Hickey for my hair

Hi Cabra...don't be worrying about stuff...you've plenty of time to organise everything. Slowly but surely...... To be honest with you...I'm not really that 'excited' as such at the moment...I am looking forward to it alright...maybe I will actually be excited closer to the time. My ideal wedding would be to elope but H2B didn't really want that and plus, when I told my 98 year old Nana we were engaged she just presumed we'd be having it here and practically had the ferry booked the next day (she lives in Wales)! So I couldn't let her down...we're lucky we still have her around. So we're doing the big Irish wedding. Thinking about it now...it will be good to have all my friends there on the day so I'm happy it worked out this way. Cabra Castle is gorgeous by the way. Good choice.
