Two things that WILL happen, so do not panic. It's just written.

1. You and your bloke will have a massive fight, probably about a week beforehand. It'll be huge, it'll be horrible, it will be most likely over something completely irrelevant and all forgiven within 24 hours.
This isn't just my experience but of several couples we've spoken to over the years. One of my mates, three days before his wedding had his missus throw all of his stuff out of the house and tell him to fuck off and never come back.
They've been married for 12 years and have three kids.

2. Something regarding the day itself will threaten to go wrong/actually go wrong. Don't panic about it, there's no point, everything will work itself out somehow anyway.
We were told two days before the wedding that our cheque for the church hadn't cleared so unless we found £250 in 24 hours, the wedding was off.
The church - a bunch of money-grubbing bastards :yes:

I can definitely see those two things happening. It took all my willpower not to lodge my Wedding folder into his skull the other week :lol: .

We have to decide on some boring readings for the ceremony (to bulk it out, else it'd only take a minute).

Does anyone here have any ideas of readings/poems / short extracts about love / relationships

And damn you Kim, I really want to watch Futurama now but it isn't on TV anymore :(

New series to look forward to though :). I'll have to take a pic of our table names at some point (Each table will be named after a Futurama character) We are going to be at the Lrr and Ndna table 8)

I've started seeing a guy I've know for 3 years and who liked me that whole time and I've become very close to in the last few months. Tis going very well so far. Seems for once I've got into a relationship that is not self destructive and isn't going to destroy my soul :yes:

He's being romantic (actually insisting to pay when he takes me out on a date unles the usual type I got for who I pay for cos they're skint) and he is happy to pubically show ahings affection, and just sit and cuddle when wanted. Things are good so far
:yes: :yes: :yes:

Nd-Nd: And what is this emotion you humans call wuv?
Lrrr: Surely it says love?
Nd-Nd: No, wuv. With an Earth "W". Behold!
Lrrr: This concept of "wuv" confuses and infuriates us!

Not quite sure how you'd work it in though.

Basic story; Girl who has basically become one of my best friends allegedly had a major thing for me whilst we were in halls last year. Of course, as someone becomes attracted to me, I become repulsed by them because that's the logical mind-set (...what?). So as I become more aware that she's losting interest in me, I begin to have feelings for her. Like, major feelings that have basically come to be exacerbated by her over the last few weeks - to quote the most recent episode of 'How I Met Your Mother', I was clearly on her "hook" (oh yes, I'm cool enough to quote HIMYM) and I'm pretty sure she knew it / was exercising it. Anyway, for some stupid reason I decide to reveal aforementioned feelings and of course get shot down. Lovely. At least it's closure, maybe I'll stop being a bit of a whiny git and move on, eh?

Ha, apparently she got so drunk after we split up that she doesn't even remember the conversation taking place. And I'll be damned if I'm going to remind her.

Sounds cool. Good luck! What do you have planned for your hen night/last night of freedom?

Nothing to mad hopefully (I have put a ban on L plates and Barry Chuckle look alike strippers).

We are thinking of either going Wine tasting at Vinopolis for the day or Chocolate making.Then probably afternoon of some wine / cocktails in a bar with a bite to eat and then probably a comedy club.

We have the weekend before Bloodstock penciled in as Hen party weekend, and my friend's Hen party is the weekend after Bloodstock (I have a feeling August may go by in a bit of a blur :P ).
