How on earth has it come around so quickly, we only got engaged yesterday (ok so Feb 14 but feels like yesterday!).
Things are happening, we're getting through the list, the weekend just gone ticked a few big items off:
- Passport for Me! - I had a passport, however it expired 2 years ago, seeings as our honeymoon is in Vanuatu, would've sucked for Mr Mel to have headed off solo!
- Suit for Mr Mel - we were going to hire a suit, but nowhere hired the colour
Originally we were going with a Taupe colour, something like this photo
However after going to 5 separate formal hire places in Newcastle it wasn't looking good, none of them had suits to hire in the colour, and what they did have to buy in the colour had a cream pinstripe, which we didn't like.
The next colour to have caught our eye was grey, so Mr Mel tried on a few different options and we ended up buying a 3 piece darkish grey suit, with an ivory shirt & tie. The ivory will match my dress, and he can wear the tie if he wants, but probably won't. I love the waistcoat look above, and when Mr Mel tried his suit on without the jacket & tie, I knew it was the one, he looked so handsome and swish!
|This is similar to the suit we've purchased, however with the same colour waistcoat, ivory shirt & tie.|
Last night we finalised our selections for vows and ceremony and emailed them to our celebrant.
Next weekend I'm going shopping for my shoes, Brideslave shoes, Bra & Suckitallin Underwear for me. And hopefully getting onto the elusive DIY Bunting project!
