One dress down, 3 to go!

So the good news is that Scarlett's Flower Girl dress arrived over the weekend.  It had been going in and out of stock and I finally managed to bag one for her.

To remind you, it looks like this.

Whilst browsing the BHS site I found this.  If only it was a adult bridesmaid dress, I'd pass it off as a wedding dress!!

Also found this, it's quite nice.  I think I might be clutching at straws somewhat though!

I'm a bad wedding blogger, got my boyfriend in ya shower....

Whoop, I'm making 6 bucks an hour...

Well, I think I'm making more than that, but not as a wedding blogger (grumble grumble, insert snidey wedding blogger comment here!!)

But I am really quite terrible at blogging.  I guess the reason is that, yet again, the wheels of the wedding juggernaut have ground to a halt.  Again.

I say that but actually, we did make some huge payments this last week.  We paid off our registrar so eep, that's exciting.  When we went to do the official registration bit in Sutton we were wishing we'd kinda just come down to do it on the quiet.  But we were sans witnesses so we gave up on that idea!  But there was a couple there with just two of their friends who got married whilst we were there.  They had a bottle of champagne which they were drinking in the little garden out of plastic cups.  They only looked like they were about 20, bless.

The other thing we paid was the deposit for our band.  I kinda don't want to say who it is as we want to try and keep it under our hats until the night.  But I did reveal it on Twitter two months ago, so if you really want to know, go and shuffle back through my timeline!!  But I'm really super excited about it.  Like, really excited! I just hope they're as good as they look in their videos!

Also, we stumbled across the Vitamin String Quartet on Spotify the other night.  We decided we totally want to compile a playlist to be played during dinner.  Our favourite track was Gold Digger by Kanye West, it was just brilliant, we were in stitches!!  We also particularly loved their version of All You Need Is Love by, er, duh, the Beatles, which we're thinking of walking out of the barn together to after the ceremony.

But the main one, that I think I might walk in to is Just Like Heaven by The Cure.  It's The Cure.  It has a good tempo, Andy introduced me to The Cure when we started going out and really, it's just perfect in pretty much every way.  So, there we go, that's one job done!!

PS. If anyone wants a Spotify Open invite I have 26 of them!!  However, I totally recommend Spotify, I listen all day, every day, and do not regret for one minute paying £10 a month for it.  I don't care what you say, I'd be lost without it and it's made finding music for the wedding a piece of piss compared to trawling through YouTube and converting the files into MP3's....!
