    Getting Married

    Hi all

    I know I haven't been on here in absolutely ages but I wanted to share the news that OH and I got engaged this month whilst skiing (very romantic bless him!) and we're getting married (church availability permitting!) next May I am a very happy and excited Pixie and will no doubt be on here like anything over the next twelve months asking questions about military weddings

    Hope everyone is well

    Re: Getting Married

    Hey all

    Thought I should quit lurking and start posting again!!

    Date has been set and Church booked, wedding dress bought (measurements taken this Sat which I am looking forward to ... honestly I am!) and marquee booked ... guest list done too so I reckon we can relax for a few months now!

    Does any one have any tips on flowers for early May? I am thinking tulips and roses for me and possibly table as they should be in season. However, we have been thinking about doing the flowers ourselves (not OH obv!) maybe planting up bulbs (late flowering hyacinths as they smell so lovely potentially) in pretty containers for the tables, as I don't want things costing the earth, save the money for the booze!

    Better late than never - congratulations!!

    I am getting married in August and I only started planning in Feb/March time. Nearly got everything done - so if I can do it in that space of time while OH is in his basic training, then you should be fine!

    Good luck... and if you need any wedding check lists, let me know, i have a fair few lying around

    Re: Getting Married

    Sounds fantastic! Deffo go for flowers that you like or mean something to you.

    We had white roses (obviously) and thistle flowers, hubby being Scottish.

    Technically, May is still Spring, so head for things like Narcissi, bluebells, freesias... This website might help.

    Thanks guys

    I am not 100% sure of what I want, have sorted out the dress, the photographer and my half of the guest list so other than that not much is on my list .. I am sure that will change as the months go by though! I love tulips as they are a bit quirky - like me Fressias tpp, they smell so gorgeous but not sure they will be in season that early in May ... need to talk to florists I guess!

    Am so excited, hubby-2-be looks so gorgeous in his blues I am fairly sure saying vows will be difficult buying the dress has made verything seem more real, and very exciting!

    W2B give me the details! Where/dress/reception etc!

    Cheers Sammi

    Thanks WR, I do love roses, hopefully will sneak a few in

    That's the same day as me and my OH angeleyes! We've done the same, it only took a day to organise everything, with a grand total cost of 300 quid. Winner!

    Re: Getting Married

    2010 does seem to be the year for weddings.

    14th August seems the most popular for that at the moment, my best friend is getting married on that day, she's been planning it for two years. Wasn't best pleased when I announced I was engaged in January and chose the date two weeks before hers!

    But as the o/h only gets so many days leave a year it was easier for us to get married, have a weeks honeymoon, come back for her wedding and then move in together.

    I through mine together pretty quickly. Usual story, first dress I tried on and all that. I want to wear it NOW!
    Not quite a newby but not quite there yet either, just settling in to my first patch in Germany.

    Re: Getting Married

    2010 is a great year for weddings!

    Unfortunately, we got married, had a weekend away, then because of the RN we had to put our honeymoon on hold until the summer. So I suppose I'm still in a honeymoon phase!!

    Re: Getting Married

    My wedding date is the 14th August too!

    I am shocked that there is so many people in one place getting married on the same day!!!

    Well maybe not, but that's what I think I look like after a few too many glasses of vino

    Re: Getting Married

    I can't believe someone got married wearing that ... each to their own, but seriously!!

    After lots of looking through dates for next year we have gone for 7th May 2011, hoping there aren't any sporting events arranged on that date between now and then!
