Re: February 2011

Hi, I just want to wish you all good luck from a February 10 bride. I remember this time last year one of the February 09 brides wished us luck in the thread and I thought wow, I can't imagine the wedding being over, let alone a year ago - and now here I am passing the luck on to all of you! Cherish...

Re: Looking fresh on the day...what are you doing?

On the morning of the wedding my sister put teaspoons in the freezer then got me to press them to my eyes/undereyes.

It is SO painful (although I have extreme sensitivity to cold) but really reduced puffiness and undereye circles!

Re: April Fools Day!!

We "broke up" on facebook. Changed our statuses to single.

It lasted, oh, 4 minutes before we were called on it ("you lovesick puppies")

Re: Have You Ever - Part IV

No, nor would I, the local Aboriginal people ask that you don't, it is sacred to them.

Have you ever participated in a protest march/rally?

Hmm...I can't imagine going to a wedding and not bringing a gift. Sorry, I think that is a little weird. No thank you for them.

Re: And the wedding nightmares begin...........

I had the most bizaare dreams, everything from suddenly "coming to" days after the wedding and realising I'd missed the whole thing, to it being time to leave on the wedding day and I hadn't organised anything for my hair and make up, so I shaved my head and tied a scarf on... ...strap you...

Re: How many readings are you having?

We had an Irish wedding blessing and sonnet LXXXIII by Pablo Neruda. Our ceremony was 20 minutes. Unfortunately our celebrant just launched straight into the sonnet without announcing the title or author so it sounded like something she made up (AND she said "you may now kiss the bride", a...

Re: Strapless Bra 12F?

I just remembered and thought about this lovely comment from my future hubby when I told him I wanted to wait a year to get married so I could lose weight - he said " Rhiannon, why postpone something you're so excited about so you can look different to how you looked when I fell in love with y...

Wow, so DH and I have now been married for a month...we finally got our pro shots and I can do my hall of fame thread! Does anyone else find, their interest in weddings has abated? I was a wedding nut six months ago, even white weddings. Now I am not so interested in weddings, even "creative: o...

Re: Will you wear your veil to the reception?

Nope, took mine out. When I leaned back in my seat on the way to the ceremony and reception it kept tugging on my hair so no way was I going to have that happening through dinner, also for me the veil was about the serious part of the day - veil off, time to celebrate.

Not as such, but DH did want to thank you all for the advice, support and just listening (so to speak) to me in the lead up to the wedding.

Re: Best Wedding Venues Sydney

I can't go past the Botanic Gardens, but I'm biased :lol: If we'd had a larger wedding (or budget, it is really expensive), we'd have gone for the rose garden, as it was we loved the herb garden. If we were Anglicans I'd have gotten married in one of the many gorgeous sandstone churches St Stephens ...

Re: Your wedding picture in the paper?

We're thinking of sending one of our pro pics to the Sun Herald or (gulp) the Sunday Telegraph. We hoped we might get in as being a little different and seeing that a non-white dress doesn't mean less of a wedding!
