I hate the mess and hassle of moving :(

The fiesta is earning its keep today.

I'm in a blind panic about dresses.

We went over to Cumbria yesterday for a meeting at Rheged to sort out our requirements etc. which went quite well. As we were over there, Mum and I decided to go off to the Wedding barn to have a quick look at dresses. The woman there has now put the fear of God into me by telling us that it takes around 5 months to order a dress in. I have 5 and a bit months. I also have no money for a dress yet and no idea really about what I'm looking for. For some reason I had this idea in my head that I didn't really need to start looking until about 3 months beforehand.

Oh dear.

New plan on the reception front - Rheged. Some of you might have heard of this place.

My parents suggested it, and although I never even considered it before, the more I think about it, the more I think it might be really good, if a little different.



There's a wedding fair there on sunday, so I'm going over tonight and Mum and I will check it out tomorrow.

Overwater Hall haven't got back to me yet, so I'm going to be brave and ring them on monday if I haven't heard anything by then. I really don't think it's going to be big enough anyway - it seems we are looking at between 50 - 80 people. There goes the small, quiet wedding....

In the meantime, I am making enquiries to various other places too. Like



the Greenhill Hotel (which is where we had our 6th Form Prom way back when. It was lovely), and



Dalston Hall Hotel.

The parentals have completely surprised me by saying that they will pay. I have no idea how, but it's really fantastic of them.

As it's all real now and we actually really need to get ourselves in gear, I thought I'd better do something about finding a reception venue.

So I've emailed



Overwater Hall which is just down the road from



the church (well, as much as anything is just down the road in Cumbria). I know my mother is in love with the place, and the grounds are really beautiful, with Over Water right next to the hotel and then Skiddaw in the background.



I feel like I should really be more concerned about sorting things out. I've got this feeling that one day I'm suddenly going to realise that we really are getting married and it will be far too late to organise everything.

Apparently Kirkby Lonsdale in Cumbria is where Ellie wants to live. She's already house-hunting.

God help me:-p

Hmm, I'm sure I'd set this up as a shared journal and not a closed community.

Ah well, I'll do it later. And I'll make me maintainer </evil megalomania>
