Wow… and I am BACK!
As far as I know, the bridal shower prep is going off with out a hitch, the hen’s night is getting all sorted, massive deposits have been paid for the honeymoon! and now back on the main show!! The Wedding!
102 days to go!
My day off on Thursday is going to be a massive frenzy of wedding prep! I need to go to DeBra’s and get bridal spanx and corsetry. Then off to Beecroft to get re-measured for my gown. Then up to Chatswood for an appointment with the decorating and themeing company (chair covers, chandeliers.. that kind of thing) Then to the city to pick up my pendant and Robert’s wedding ring! Then…. welll…. umm I am sure I will think of more things to do!
Hens Night Hotel.
We settled on the Blue Hotel at Wooloomoollo
It’s from I Do Wedding Veils and they are based in SYDNEY!! They have an etsy shop too!
I have decided on this veil but cathedral length… to the length of my train. I have chantilly lace on my dress and I love that just the bottom edge will have lace, so it still have details but it is not overwhelming!
Round hanging glass candle holders
I have been searching for these for years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And I just found them
So the blog this was featured on, the lovely lady in the US mentioned where she got it from. I go over to there website which is American (That’s a GREAT thing… because look at our dollar!!!!! $$$$$) and check out if they ship internationally and Yes they do!!! I just have to get them to email me a quote on the shipping… no problem. My order total is $95…. I get an email in reply for $154.65 for JUST SHIPPING ONLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They placed a big emphasis on they way they ship items, meaning they were really trying to justify the cost to me. Yeah.. so what. I have bought $3K worth of items in one transaction from the US and they shipped the exact same way (FedEx Priority International Shipping/insurance) and it was $60. I wrote a catty response back with a big please explain. I am not expecting a reply…. well I did get a reply, an automated one… OUT OF OFFICE… of course you are! Hmmmm
So my next hunting ground was back to wear I started. I saw these in the MYER emporium magazine a while ago. When the mag first came out, I went to the Parramatta and the Warringah store and NOTHING. No one knew what I was talking about, then I produced the magazine and still I was met with blank stares. “Ohhh darls, I haven’t even seen them… They have never been in this store”
Then I ring the city store, the Bondi Junction store and finally the Chatswood store. I keep getting the same response. No one has seen the damn things…. It was not a question that they were sold out. They never arrived and have never been stocked in their store. I then get fed up and ask for Head offices number. By this stage I have wasted 40 minutes on this fruitless search.
I really wanted to give it to myer! “Umm hi, I have money… and I want to spend said money… you have also spent money producing glossy magazines that advertise products… THAT I CAN’T FUCKING BUY!!! Please tell me what the point of that is”
So some lovely lady gives me ‘head offices number’ Well… no she didn’t.. She just gave me the city number in Melbourne, because coincidently Myer’s head office is in Melbourne. So when I quickly figure that out, I ask the man at the Melb city store to give me the Docklands Head office phone number, he assures me he can help me (even though they also have never seen these items either!!!) He said he would do the run around for me and he seemed quite helpful, he would ring the buyers/merchandisers/distributors for me and get back to me” This was at 10 to 9 in the morning.
At 4pm…. the same man rings me back and ….. and….. is inquiring …. what my fucking inquiry is!!
Ummm forget it.. I already found them on ebay for half the price.
Here they are in all their ebay goodness!
Pay Day tomorrow
Already spent it!
