My lovely wedding updates…

Hello hello!
How are we all today? I hope you all had a fantastic weekend? It’s Sunday and the first day back at work, uhh I hate Sundays but it’s now the afternoon so I guess we are almost done right? (Positive thinking people, positive thinking ;-))
So today I wanted to update you with my wedding plans. Our most recent addition to be ticked off the ‘to do list’ was choosing our wedding band. It took us a while to finally make a decision but we did it and have confirmed The Maplejacks. A Dubai based band from the UK & New Zealand, who are very cool and very talented will be playing at our wedding in Dubai. If you have a moment check them out on FaceBook or go to the website here. To be honest it was the only thing Nathan and I had slightly different views on, but in the end we decided together and it’s all worked out fine. I’m lucky that lots of my friends in Dubai who know of the Maplejacks and all suggested we have them play, so for us it was that reassurance that swayed our decision. 🙂  I’m currently putting together some handy tips for choosing your wedding band and will be posting them online very soon.

Nathan and I have nearly finished handing out our wedding invitations, which is very exciting as I just love seeing people’s faces when they open up the envelope. I’d love to share them with you now but until the last invitation is delivered I  will be keeping it to myself. I mean, it just wouldn’t be fair to ruin the surprise for my other invitees. 😉

The Dress…
My wedding dress is currently being alerted by Ann at The Bridal Room and I have my first fitting this Wednesday. I’m so excited I can hardly contain myself. I’m waiting until I see my dress again to make any final decisions on my wedding shoes. I know, I have plenty of time but for me the excitement takes over and I can’t help myself. Plus in a way I need my wedding shoes now so that I can wear them in a little bit? Maybe walk around my bedroom a few times before the big day just so I don’t get blisters?? Please don’t judge me! 🙂
My wedding favors
My wedding favors are decided, Nathan and I knew a long time ago what we wanted to give our guests. It was actually my mums idea.- Thanks Mum! We wanted to make it personal and give our guests a little taste of where we are from. I don’t want to give too much away but let’s just say that while I was home  (In Somerset, UK) I ordered something sweet from the village I grew up in. And it’s yummy!!! I also have my favor bags which I found in dragon mart a few weeks ago, I managed to find exactly what I was looking for and they were really cheap! Result! 🙂

So now that I’ve updated you with things we have done, here is my list of things to do in the next few weeks…
♥Meet with the florist & start to think about the design of our flowers
♥Meet the tailor to talk about my sisters dress (She’s my maid of honor)
♥Help my friends look for flights & hotels in Dubai
Plus I have a million other little things to start thinking about for the blog. (I won’t bore you with my very long list)
So lovely people I better get to work…
Signing off for now,
Joelle x
