What a LOVELY day!!!
I've had such a nice time! Seeing Jaquie was great. She brought Mia with her (one kid was enough for David to cope with all day I think, lol) and she was a little sweetheart all day, so good and quiet! You'd hardly know she was there. Jacs gave me a photo of her to add to my growing collection on "my mates kids" photos!
Towneley was heaving with people, but we got round just about everything anyway. Mum intriduced me to a lass called Zhara who showed me and Jacs round persoanlly and talked my wedding over with me, showed me the rooms it would happen in, explained the lay out, and recommended a good caterer, and suggested that a band would be better than a DJ (which is what I would prefer anyway). I think we might have embarased mum by laughing at in in-appropriate moment; a guy tapped Zhara on the back, and told he he's have to pop out for a moment to drop his bollard, and me and Jacs where in fits!
When we finally found Allen (mum's mate who does the enactments with her) he thought Jacs was me, which was rather funny, and not a little bit embarasing for Jacs and Allen, hee hee, when Mum pointed out that I was me....!
It turns out that me and Jacs have fallen in love with the same wedding dress though, which is a bit of a worry. I made jokes about going halves on it and me having it after her as she's getting married before I am. She didn't go for it as an idea though (not a suprise really) and I guess I'll have to hope she'll find something she likes better. It's the Romy dress I posted a few weeks back from Pronuptua - the white dress with red bodice and gloves.
I've come home with tons of wedding stuff to rummage through, and some cataloges of menswear for Yorkie to look at too. He likes "something in green", which might resolve the dress problem, as if he really wants to wear green, it might be a good idea for me to NOT wear red next to him. We'll look like a christmas card!
The best of news though, is the discount we are getting!
I can't say how much online as it might affect the discount. Towneley is a popular wedding spot, and I don't want them to get too much pressure, but lets say this - it is CERTAINLY an advantage haviong a wonderful, well loved, friendly women like my mother on the inside! *wink wink*
All I have to do now is convince dad to buy in the booze for the wedding and all my bargain chips will be used up!
