    Engelska bruda?

    Are there any other english brides to be out there planning their wedding to swedish men?

    I'd love to hear from you!

    Where are you living and what is the magical date?

    Stockholm, 18th August 07 for us!

    terri: He explained it is a symbol of two families 'becoming one' - but there is a big chance he's pulling my leg again...

    Ah, yes, I also thought of a 'welcome' sign for the door. The one we have now is ugly but it doesn't make a lot of sense to replace it as our name (well, my name) will change in March...

    I would love to go on with our festprogram but not a chance at the moment (too much work, yes, what am I doing here?!). The ideas we have so far is:
    * welcome and thank you
    * guest presentation and seating arrangement
    * menue
    * lyrics of our song
    * some differences between Swedish and English people
    * our horoscope (my h2b is a big fan of horoscopes, though he doesn't believe in them, he just likes reading them :D)
    * what the emergency boxes in the rest rooms contain and phone numbers to the nearest hospital and taxi companies
    * some funny wedding related comics and/or jokes and/or sayings

    Ok, I really have to get back to work now. Can hear the deadline banging on my door...

    NuÄrDetDags - Nice fest program. Was also thinking to do something about the differences between english and swedish people. I'm planning to start drafting ours over christmas as well as agree the wording of the invites.

    My h2b keeps saying that it's normal at english weddings that people sit with other guests they know but I don't agree - who is right? We were at his sister's wedding last month where we sat at the 'family' table with all their cousins, uncle and aunts (nice peopl, it's not that). There then another family table for the grooms family, a uni table for friends from university, a tennis table for friends from tennis etc.

    table setting is something that i am not sure about. perhaps this webpage has some tips... www.youandyourwedding.co.uk
    i think we will group freinds together, at least in half tables, if not complete tables. guests will have more fun this way rather than mixing up childhood freinds with work colleaugues and grannies etc!
