People say life is the thing, but I prefer reading*

It's safe to assume that any posts between now and 7/9/07 will be wedding related

Dear oh dear, is it really so long since I last posted something to this here blog? I've been (as ever) busy sorting out the details for my upcoming nuptials (I love that word, nuptials. It sounds like a tasty treat!).

The invitations that we thought about so carefully, matched with the colour scheme and agonised over, arrived the other day. They were the wrong colour. And I mean completely wrong - they were green. They were not supposed to be green. Once I regained consciousness I managed to sort it out (turns out the shop had put the wrong code on the order form, a code that meant GREEN). The new invitations in the correct colour are now on order at no cost to us and should be here just in the nick of time to send out.

We've also been sorting out our gift list. We naturally ended up going for the selfish, grasping option of just having a gift list in John Lewis. And may I say, the process of setting up a gift list is worth getting married for - they give you a little scanner that you take round the shop, beeping everything that takes your fancy! It's like being given John Lewis, wrapped up with a big red bow.

I'm also trying to decide whether I should get my hair cut into a fringe or not.

I had planned for my hair to be back off my face for the wedding and I don't want to look like I don't have any hair in the pictures (the photographer will probably want me to face the camera, right?), so I've been toying with the idea of having a sort of sideswept fringe. Sort of like this, but not so... emphatic. Or like this blonde chick, but less... blonde.

Bearing in mind that it's 8 weeks on Friday* till the big day (i.e. not long enough to grow out any rash hair experiments), should I get a fringe?

*Obligatory panic attack ensues

Same as my fringe has been since xmas and I will warn you they bug you like hell in the beginning. . .best get it done now if you do at all so you get used to it and aren't swepping it away every 2 mins causing forehead spots.

(best to warn you)

Swepping?!! Hey another new word from DQ. . .

Apologies for my recent commenting absence *bows her head in shame*
First off-have you had a fringe before?
If you haven't then I'd be wary of doing anything with your hair that you may be doubtful of. If yes and you liked it then go for it as per DQ's advice.you need to feel comfortable on your big day.

I think the fringe is cute, but as the ladies said, maybe try it out now so it has some time to grow out if you hate it?

Or just hang a bunch of string from your forehead for awhile to see how it feels. ;)

Funny, I just hit Publish on a post about bangs! Please know they don't always look as they do in the picture ... don't want to frighten you straight out of the idea.

You make a good point about wanting some hair in the pictures. If your hair is relatively straight, it would probably look great. Even if your hair is wavy or curly, your stylist should be able to make sure they stay put all day. I'm with the others on doing it soon if you're going to, so you can get used to the look and feel of them.

Fringes can be great. But they can be high maintenance, so unless you're really really keen, I'd say no. But then I'm a wimp.

But loving the nuptials stories - tis all rather exciting!
