Re: Beach Dress

As a beach bride myself, I think it depends where you are getting married and the season/climate. I'm getting married in Thailand and wanted something light and flowy. I didn't want the added issues of tulle and boning and corsets etc etc. Thailand is hot and humid enough, I don't want to add to it!...

Re: HELP!! Need to severely cut down our budget!!

Chair sashes for $2.50 each?? We hire them for $1 each for DIY! I'm assuming you are DIY? Would it work out cheaper to hire nicer chairs and not worry about covers or sashes? How much are Americana chairs? They don't need covers, so even if the chairs cost a little more to hire in total, you would s...

Re: January Weight Loss Thread

I have less than 8 months to lose weight for the wedding, but I am also trying to get healthier for when we start IVF soon too. We have just moved the Wii Fit into the carpeted lounge which has a much better layout too, so my sister (who lives with me, cos my FH works away so much) are going to star...

Re: help with flowers

Absolutely anything goes with corsages and buttonholes. If you are on a budget then just giving to parents is fine, or you really don't even have to have them at all. Rather than ask for a buttonhole for the wand I would mention what it is for as it may be cheaper if it doesn't have to include the e...

Hamilton Island is definitely a 'destination'! How exciting!

We have swapped our date to 25th August 2013 now. Will be the 4th anniversary of when he proposed to me on the same beach!

Re: Feeling bad turning this supplier down

I was going to say the same as LIW...buy some and then buy some other ones cheaper elsewhere
They probably aren't expensive if you are buying a few at a market or for a gift...it's more the fact that lots are needed I guess

Try searching Thailand on here. There are lots and lots of ideas already suggested. I'm on my phone, so it's too hard to link to them :)

Re: To ask or not to ask (for a donation towards the mains)

I agree with what Ruby and Kate have said. I would cut out the photo booth or games. I have never been to a wedding that has had these, I don't dance much and I rarely drink cos I drive and I have never been bored at a wedding yet!! I would also have an afternoon tea and then tell guests that you wi...

Re: Eloping to Thailand

Welcome to WC! If you look up Thailand in the search bar you will find lots of useful info from past brides in Thailand, I have found their info invaluable. There aren't many brides on here currently that have Thai plans. Natasha from Creative Events Asia is fantastic for all the legal stuff in Bang...

'The Pageant' has been running for the last 80 years. Originally started by the former John Martins Department Store. Floats and bands etc wind their way through the CBD and finish outside what is now David Jones. From here Santa leaves his sleigh and heads inside to 'The Magic Cave'. It is a huge t...

Re: What flowers are these?

I'm 95% sure! I'm on my phone and can't get the image to load clearly when I enlarge it, but from what I can see and the style that they are hung then I am pretty confident! We have done a quite a few hung on pews like that...they always look beautiful. To save costs you could do every second aisle ...
