Re: Rose petal aisle

How wide and long is your aisle Swedies?

I read somewhere that 1.5 cups will do a light covering of 0.5m x 0.5m, but I don't know if this is accurate....seems quite a lot to me.

Re: Rose petal aisle

I'm also interested in this.

Also, where are you ladies buying them from? Is it the florist you are getting your flowers from? I'm doing my own bouquet so was wondering where I could get some for a reasonable price.

Re: Need some advice about doing my invites

What about buying a template to use? This website has some pretty good ones and then you just need to change the text:

Re: RSVP cards, do i need them?

I think it depends on how many guests you have and how well you know everyone. We aren't having them, but we are only having 19 guests that are immediate family and very close friends that we know exceptionally well, and see/hear from everyone every week. However, RSVPs are also a good place to ask ...

Re: Feathers and Quarantine

Okay, I'm know I'm a bit late to answer, but only just found the topic. Feathers are subject to Quarantine, so you need to check out the AQIS website (Aust. Quarantine Inspection Service and go to the section called ICON) - not the Customs website. They are two totally different departments. I used ...

Re: Ideas for 40TH! for partner!

Ok, this may seem a bit lame, but I remember seeing it on Oprah years ago, but this woman got 4 presents that start with 'O'. So I think she booked some accommodation in a luxury hotel that started with O, did an activity that started with O, etc. And there was also another O that she finished his b...

Re: Grooms Gifts

We agreed no gifts, so I am just getting him a small gift bag of cologne, cuff links (of his favourite footy team, which I know he'll love), mints and some socks.

I figure that is so inexpensive that is classifies as no gift! :P

Love your Hen's BonniBinx! I like different too. No offense to any future hen's out there, but I can't imagine anything worse than wearing a sash with 'bride to be' and sipping out of ***** straws......it's just not me. I don't think I'll have a dedicated 'hens night'. And being I don't have any BMs...

Re: ok so needing insperation- reception decorations

I was thinking round lanterns too - hanging from the ceiling. Something like this (but not necessary this many): http://www.australianbrides.com.au/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/inspiration.jpg Or even the spherical candle holders hanging in appropriate places? http://www.getprice.com.au/images/up...

Re: How did you find your hairdresser/makeup artist?

I think wedding expos in her area is a great idea - especially if she does free quick makeup sessions at it. I loved how a MUA did my makeup at an expo last year and was planning on booking her, but unfortunately I moved my wedding 100km away and I don't think I can justify the extra cost of travel....

Re: April 2011

You girls seem all so organised! I'm only working on my invites now.... however, being our wedding is so tiny, we've already checked that everyone can come! So it's kind of only a formality. Still, I want to change my signature so that whenever I post something, I'm not reminded on how close things ...

Re: ok so needing insperation- reception decorations

What sort of theme are you thinking for your wedding?

That way we might be able to give you some suggestions that will be more relevant.

Re: Gold Coast photographers

We are using White Pearl Photography, which I think (from memory) has packages from around $2000 which include a high res disk.

Re: Hard work starts....NOW!

As women, we are our own toughest critic I think.

I applaud you for letting them take photos and look at them! I'd rather stick pins in my eyes...well maybe not quite!

I'm sure there is plenty of difference, and your FH can see it. Stay positive and it will become more obvious. :D

Re: Any Brissy girls doing the Bridge to Brisbane?

Hey Mini!

Unfortunately, I'll still be overseas at the time, otherwise I'd be doing it. I did the 10km last year and want to beat my time. It's a great achievement to do! Even if it is only 10km!
