A little bit of background...

Well, I'm a writer, currently recovering from a year-long hiatus while my daughter learned to sleep and made her way onto solid food. I've been writing forever (it seems so at least!), but I have yet to get anything to a satisfactory point. I'm sure I'll manage that someday.

I was diagnosed with epilepsy in 2006, aged nineteen. It had a big ole' implact on my life; for one thing, I wouldn't have met my husband had I not lost my driver's license because of it! So it wasn't all bad, though it has left me unemployed at the moment. I await the future with some trepidation.

I live in the South East of England with my husband and my two children, who I married in October 2011. So yes, I am still a newlywed I guess!

Hi, I'm TottWriter, and I'm an author. I've been writing a series of novels for some years now, with many interruptions along the way. But I'm not giving up - my ultimate goal is publication...

Aha, I can absolutely see that! My friend got her gown at a dressmaker's shop; she said that at first the lady was willing to sell her anything but as soon as she mentioned it was for her reception, the woman brought out her $1,000+ stock and started pushing hard. I think that's absolutely ridiculous. Gone are the days when the bride's father paid for everything, most people now pay for their own weddings. You'd think it would be less likely someone would consider at $1,000 dress just for a reception, but apparently not.

Oh my absolute goodness your son sounds like the charmer of a decade. What a darling!

I plan on DIY'ing as much of the wedding as I can, as well. I have some great ideas for the invitations (and thank you notes, and namecards), as well as decorations, favours, etc. My dressmaking skills are nonexistant, though, but I've been thinking about going secondhand or renting. I want to keep the whole thing as cost-efficient and green as possible without giving up my fairytale wedding. The bar is tricky. I want an open bar ideally, of course, but I highly doubt we'll be able to do that. I like the idea you did, of a couple glasses free for each guest and then cash bar after that. We've decided to at least provide our favourite wine free for the toast, and then have it cash after that.

Oh, I'm so excited now that I'm thinking of it! Your dress is lovely, by the way, I saw it on your blog. You looked gorgeous!

My boy proposed to me over the summer and I can't wait to plan my wedding. We have to wait til we have the funds, though, but hopefully not as long as four years! That must have been hard.

Best of luck with your writing and your aim for publication! I also aim to be published when I can get a manuscript that is polished enough. Until then, back to the current draft! biggrin
