The last week

It’s down to the final week before the wedding (actually 6 days to go) and I’ve been repeatedly told that it will fly past. I’d like to try and retain the memories of the rush of the last 7 days of planning. So here is the first of 6 posts running up to the big day!

Yesterday was incredible. We woke early and went to our first ever car boot sale, on the hunt for the last of our bits and pieces to make the centrepieces. It didn’t prove as fruitful as hoped, but we got a pretty good haul, as well as a strong desire to go back there once we have some free cash and have a good root around the jewellery and antiques. We hit a few charity shops afterwards and majorly confused one of the poor volunteers with our request for as many old looking hardback books as possible. Did titles matter? Of course not!

Home by lunchtime, we cleared away the wedding craft mess for Jen coming down for hen part deux.


Last night Jen and I met up with Jodie, Jana, Emma, Sabrina and Robyn for yummy dinner at Hamilton’s before heading to Supercube to join Caroline and enjoy some private room karaoke. Belted out the hits, went for a bit of a dance and then fairly early to bed.

Today was productive. Al has been sorting out our playlist and I finished making all but one of the centrepieces, until I burned my finger on the glue gun. Sad face.

Tomorrow brings a small respite for me at a spa day with my mum and sisters. Poor Al has to work.
