We are not, but we are tweaking a few of the ones provided to us by our celebrant so they better suit us. Its an easier way to do it IMHO, as you say its hard to do yourself and sometimes all you need to do is slightly change the words of something else.

Re: How Far Will People Travel

I've been to a few weddings like this; to be honest..it didnt bother me in the least...yes the drive can be a pain but once we got their it was about the couple and we forgot about the drive instantly.. As a guest, you receive an invitation early enough to plan your trip, so unless you're heavily pr...

Re: Are you involving grooms parents in your plans?

My MIL was involved at every planning stage mainly because she was sooooo over-excited as her first-born son was getting married!!!! plus it was easy to include her she is not the meddling type and she was always respectful of my choices if they differed from hers.. On the day.. -obviously both wore...

LOVE these!

I would add -

You are there as a guest and are not paying for your meal or alcohol, so don't complain about them.
If your boyfriend/girlfriend of five minutes is not on the invite, they are not invited!


love these two as well Ash..!

Re: How many dress fittings are you having and at when?

technically I supposed to have only 3, but they had taken the bust in a little too much, so I had a fourth one to make sure it was right!

Re: Fiance saw wedding dress

I showed my husband (or fiance back then) a pic of my dress during preparations, thinking it would be waaay out of my budget...but ended up getting it..He saw the dress before our day a few times again as it was featured in a couple of bridal mags, and knew I had bought it...but after our wedding I ...

Re: Fireworks

Our venue offered fireworks for when we were leaving at the end of the night (via boat along the Yarra)...but for me it wasn't that it seemed OTT but cost was a huge factor...for 3 to 4 minutes it cost something like $3,000 8O and I definitely could not justify that!! but if your budget allows for i...

Thats gen Y for you. Most people these days think FB is a perfectly acceptable way of letting everyone know. I am also Gen Y but I think this is rude. I guess not everyone was raised wih manners.

Re: Would you do this

As a guest I would not like this. As a bride it would be a cold day in hell before I would do it myself. I have strong personal views about being a good host and IMHO asking people to pay their own way is not being a good host. If you (and not addressing this at anyone in particular) cannot afford ...

I think rather than hiding it, its prob best to use it as a prop...I love the idea of some lanterns hanging from it!! another idea is you could use it as your guestbook! make up lots of little cards in whatever shape you want and then gets some funky clips, so guests can clip them on to the clothesl...
