Re: What are you walking down the isle to?

We had one song and it was Songbird by Eva Cassidy.... I think if you had 2 songs it would break up the nice flow.... :D Just need to use live musicians for it, but easily done. I've been a musician in a wedding where we did a medley of about 3 pieces (can't remember names). Who ever said they used...

Re: 6 weeks out and may need a new dress??!

Thanks so much girls - you have no idea how helpful you have been and how much it is appreciated :mrgreen: Most of the ebay ones I posted (except the champagne one) were ending yesterday but I just wanted to show you what I'd found on there that I liked. I definitely agree with you all re the one t...

Re: 6 weeks out and may need a new dress??!

You want honesty so here it goes: As much as the dress you posted is lovely it is a bit dated already and it does sit on your hips... Spanks won't help as its the bodice length that's not right.... The other dresses you posted I believe are much more flattering for you... You a beautiful girl with a...

Re: Planning: where did you begin?

You first need to figure out how much you are willing to spend as this will determine guest numbers and then do a guest list. Once you figure these out venues will be narrowed down to ones you can afford and that will fit your numbers. Then you need to book your photographer/videographer/celebrant. ...

Re: Decent Reception Centre in Sydney!

Personally I have issues with all Dolton House venues. Their tables are oval shaped and tiny. The service is lacking (managerial staff are A-holes because they know they can get away with poor service since they're so popular). The food isn't great. And having black ceilings and walls makes your ch...

Re: Dress cleaned before the wedding

depends where it is on the dress hun....i wouldn't bother personally though as the dress is going to get dirty pretty much the moment you step out the door in it...

Re: Marrying a Catholic

I know I'm bringing up an old topic, but what's the deal with having a celebrant do the ceremony in a church? That way we can just ask them to maybe add a little catholic stuff for FH's family and keep the rest low key.......... No church will let you do this - they will tell you that a church is n...
