He proposed on the anniversary of our first date three years ago, 26th September 2004.
Hen night was brilliant, the girlies organised a limo to pick us up from the house, then we got dropped into town “Coventry” for a meal and drinks at Chicago Rocks, at the Sky Dome complex. Stag night, Steve and a group of his mates went out for lots of drinks around Earlsdon “Coventry”.
He basically did as he was told and came to suit fittings, venue meetings, when he was told to do so.
No not to plan, but came up with some good ideas from them.
Yes bought online, very easy web site to use, brilliant.
I wore a Maggie Sottero “Dion” diamond white wedding gown which I purchased from ebay and took to a wedding dress lady who corrected it to fix appropriately. It was gorgeous and made me feel very special.
Two bridesmaids, my neice Leanne aged 9 and my husbands daughter Laura aged 11. They worn sky blue bridesmaids dresses with diamontes and looked stunning.
Steve had his cousin Paula’s husband Tony and my Son gave me away, so three in total worn wedding suits.
