    Of course for a little more, you could come visit me!

    I could almost guarantee nice weather in March - cooling off and not too rainy! :yes:

    We went in late May through mid June. While we did run into some rain and cool days, for the most part it was quite an enjoyable, though VERY expensive trip given the exchange rate at that the time (best deal I got was $2.14=£1.00 at M&S). Would love to be able to do that trip all over again with today's exchange rate.

    It would have made a huge difference John the rate at M&S at the moment is $1.46 = £1.

    A perfect suit for you. A dignified small bouquet... Jon in a lovely dark suit...precisely placed boutonniere...and a judge. Simple, clean, perfect. The import of the meaning of the ceremony.

    Then off to the flight to the UK for the honeymoon. :yes: Silly girl! Just ask me! :D :D

    We haven't had a summer here for 3 years now so we are due some good weather at some point - pretty sure it snowed last April

    I have to say you are never ever going to have guarenteed weatehr in the UK but you aren't coming here for a beach holiday so it doesn't really matter now does it :D

    They're predicting a scorcher this year but how they can do that when they can't normally get the next 24 hrs correct is beyond me.

    LOL, ok...maybe I should do a bit of explaining :)

    Yes I *want* to get married (in quite the way Tink has planned for us, well done you :wink: )

    I want simple elegance...that's it.

    Our plan was to have the wedding this July...however, on Christmas Jon's sister announced she was expecting. She is Jon's closest and dearest friend and he would not DREAM of having a wedding without her there. Unfortunately they've just relocated to Memphis and she is due in early August. Due to some medical issues she'll be unable to travel that close to her due date. So that's put July on hold. We're still considering the fall...however that makes it more difficult for my family to attend. So right now we're torn...

    We've considered a winter wedding...perhaps during the Christmas holidays...but we're still tossing it around.

    Enter an email this week advertising airfare for a ridiculous amount out of LaGuardia. I jokingly mentioned it to Jon who is now on a mission :D

    My spring break is two weeks in March...hence the date....hence the question....

    Are we all clear as muddy water?

    If you haven't been I would like to think it would be a great place to visit but it isn't as Small as some people would have you believe

    for instance it would take quite a while to hoover it all.

    The road networks are nowhere near anything you have in the states so a 30 mile journey can take aaaages down the wiggly windy roads.

    If you do chose to come there is so so so so so much more to Britain than London

    I agree with Chris, just as an example, I live in Plymouth, to drive to London it takes us 4 - 4 1/2 hours which is only about 250 miles away.

    We wouldn't even dream of driving to Scotland as it would take between 8 - 9 hours to get to Edinburgh - it takes us 9 1/2 to fly to Orlando.

    I think it's between 3 - 5 hours to Wales depending on what part you are going.

    When John and Donna where here we drove down to Penzance, the Minniack Theatre and Lands End. We had a picnic at Lands End and then drove back along the coast road to Plymouth - we were gone for the whole day.

    We may be small compared to the US but it takes forever to get anywhere :shrug:

    The Pirates of Penzance?

    Indeed.

    I shall keep a sharp eye out. Unless he has rum. Then I shall simply stick my hand out :D

    I courted Lisa in Penzance she was raised in St Just which is as far west as you can get without getting wet. It sounds better than it is I'm afraid
