Honeymoon bookings and final RSVPs

Today was the RSVP day for the three Perth reception invitations we sent out. The invitees had three weeks to respond but as of today we have no replies back - and i'm not going to bother chasing them up! I had enough of doing that that with the Rome & Perth invitations we sent out. So these five people will be marked as a no. Shame, but i think if you're planning to go to an event you'll let the organiser know, so no reply would indicate they're not interested.

I've also been busy getting the transport and accommodation booked. I've done most of the UK bookings but have only just organised my Euro travelcard, so need to wait for that to be activated before booking all the Europe legs. Unfortunately prices have still been going up, so instead of waiting and getting last-minute deals, we've had to pay more for some flights and missed out on some of the cheaper accommodation. However, you win some, you lose some - EasyJet has just announced a 20% off sale so that will save us some of the lost money.

My ring has been remade and I tried it on on Saturday. They hadn't done the bevelled edge so i've asked the jeweller to do that and then send both mine and Rob's to the engraver. They were supposed to be ready Monday but Rob received a message that the engraver was now working half days as he'd had a stroke. Poor guy, we're very lucky that he's still able to work... i am guessing it was a minor stroke and didn't affect his motor control or he wouldn't be able to work at all and his work is amazing. The rings should be available today but i couldn't get in to pick them up so i'll try to head in later this week.

Oh, and there's only a month to go until the wedding day! Squee!
