    We want to get Married in early Feb 2011.
    Its 11 weeks exactly to the 1st Feb!

    I have been on the Cambridge Diet since the end of August and have gone from 17 stone 10 to 15 5 so far well hopefully a bit more (I get weighed today).

    Absolutely nothing is booked though and I have no idea about dresses!

    I am aiming to lose 3 more stone, so just over a stone a month, to take me to 12 stone. I have no idea what clothes size that would be though.
    I want a cheap dress, max £200 as I really can't justify the cost of a higher priced dress.
    I am openminded about the colour too.

    I am considering other options apart from white. Especially as its a feb wedding so suppose its a winter wedding??

    Though I might get a white/ivory dress, i'm just not sure!!
    I like strapless dresses, if not white I am maybe thinking of getting a coloured ballgown, strapless dress??
    Could I wear a hoop underneath to make it stick out??

    I am thinking of a short sleeved fake fur shrug, stole, cape type thing over the top of strapless dress, the same colour as the dress as I don't like the top of my arms much and if its feb it will be chilly if we get married in UK.
    I am not sure though as not sure what it'll look like.

    I am hoping there might be something as there are lots of christmas parties coming up, I am hoping lots of suitable dresses are available.

    We want to get it booked up, I am still undecided about whether to go to scotland/gretna green or get married abroad (that will be lots more £ though).
    If its either of those it will just be us bride and groom.

    If we get hitched in a local church or registry office then I would only want a small wedding. And I don't want speeches or anything, or a disco, we are both not bothered about that, I want it to be very informal.

    I am hoping as we will be getting married not peak wedding season especially short notice it will be cheaper/more availability. And more dresses available coming up to christmas parties.

    I hope to hear from other brides to be/recently married
    or anyone who is interested in weddings!!

    Thanks for reading!! :)

    I also have a Cambridge Diet Diary (info on signature) incase anyone is interested, always looking for more diet buddies to support each other, but I will mainly post about my wedding here as I guess this is the right forum for it!!

    I notieced you said that u didnt want to spend too much on your dress. There is a website where alot of people on the wedding forum site i am on got there wedding dresses. Its called www.lightinthebox.com. They a have loads of colours in lots of styles. My cousin got married in Gretna green and athough it was lovely she does now wish she had inclued more people. Hope this helps huni And well down on the weight loss so far.
