    It is incredibly peaceful, i do miss being surrounded by greenery, but then i remember the awful public transport:P I presume you mean the ice cream in llanberis, they really know their ice cream there
    Yes I LOVE that place. The houses were so cute with all their bright colours. Majority of the unis I'm going to apply to are going to be like an hour or less away from a national park anyway so I'll have a chance to escape the city life for some greenery

    A nice garden somewhere, maybe of one of those huge country houses.

    I want a Vera Wang dress, so that too, but otherwise nothing else extravagant. I might spend a bit on my hair but I don't think I'd spend too much. My make up would be simple, definitely, maybe done by a close friend rather than an artist. Nice people, nice food and nice flowers, sometime in the spring.

    The last thing I want to do is go down the Asian wedding route. I hate the colour red for a wedding, the make up is layered on so thick it's disgusting, jewellery just looks wayy too much. Knowing my parents, they'll probably try to get me married in a ceremony with over 800 people in the wedding hall in the old factory near my house... :puke:

    I couldn't imagine having 800 people at my wedding, i can understand why you wouldnt want that. A country house sounds like a lovely wedding, especially gardens for photos

    I like my wedding on the beach at night with white lights and candles. I would just like to invite families and some close friends to make it more intimate.
    Yes! Plus I have to have belly dancer at my wedding and an Italian touch to it. A lovely dress produced by Vera wang or one Like the one Kate wore for her wedding and my hair done beautifully including makeup and a lovely bouquet of flowers and bridesmaids looking sexy. Also beautiful diamond necklace and earrings to go with the dress All my friends and family have to be there

    Vera Wang dresses are beautiful.

    Oh my God I don't even want to tell my Asian family I want a Western wedding with a white wedding dress with a few guests instead of an Asian one :I I feel your pain.

    I believe the average UK spend is like 12k
    Oh God what??? Thats the AVERAGE? Thats a year's minimum wage salary... anybody who wastes money like that has no right to complain about mortgages being too high or whatever. I cant believe people piss away that much money for nothing. You can have a wedding in your backyard for free /a few quick for drinks or whatever. for ****'s sake.

    Im a private person in general and prefer small, intimate gatherings over huge social events, I find it hard to understand why anyone would want to make a spectacle of their wedding, its meant to be a special event. Having 800 people at your wedding, most of whom you barely know, because nobody is that intimate with 800 people in their lives, unless you are a prostitute..it just seems a bit vain and attention-whorey, and the bigger the wedding, the more it costs, why would you pay to have so many people at your wedding, most of those people dont even want to BE there, they just went because it would be rude to decline the invite. lmao

    Or so the media says online, but being an average there are probably many that were cheaper i suppose. Your backyard wouldnt be licensed for it but yeah you can get married for about £400 at a town registrar office if you wanted to:P .
