Re: I wish someone told me..............before my wedding day.

Make sure you get photos with the people that really matter to you, even if it means holding things up for a few mins. Mums, Dads, grandparents, siblings etc will thank you for it afterwards.

Re: Who looks after cards and gifts at reception?

We had a wishing well, so that took care of the cards. My bridesmaid took the cards home (mum had been given a few at the reception for safe keeping :lol: )
Boxed gifts were given to us in the days before or the day after

Mine was 200 for a trial and 200 on the day.

Re: Do you meet with photographer before wedding?

We didn't. But we (I) had met ours when we booked 19 months earlier. My photographer called me the week before and we spent about an hour talking about the day and all the finer details :) This was suffice for me, but I would be wanting to meet with them if I hadn't already.

Re: after the bridge & groom leave..........

Our package and room ended at 11. At 10.45 we started the farewell circle then everyone formed an arch that we ran through immediately after, so we were out the doors a few mins before 11. By the time we got up to our room 5-10mins later, which overlooked the venue area, most people had gone and sta...

Re: Bubbles @ ceremony - guests still inside church?

Ours was the same as this as rose petals were not allowed inside or out -due to the clean up factor. We didn't end up going with them but we would have probably walked to the top of the aisle, and then moved aside while everyone walked out and then did the bubbles as we walked out through the door. ...

Re: Healthy options for Lolly Buffet?

If it were me, I'd probably add pretzels, dried fruit, nuts, mini pikelets.

You could really have all sorts of things "mini". A nice salad/cous cous in tiny bowls with little spoons? Might be nice to have something a little more substantial :)

Re: Bomboniere - how many guests took them home?

We only had a piece of square haigh's chocolate as our bon bons.. our wedding coordinator is holding the remaining few-she said a handful (along with other bits and pieces we left behind) for us to come and collect next time we're nearby :) 5 out of 80 is pretty good, and one of them is definitely m...

Re: Shoes?? whats your plan?

I was totally going to have two pairs of shoes- until I realised that that if there was an inch difference between the two pairs, my dress would be either too long with one pair or too short with the other. I went with a 6cm heel and got those rubber things you put on the heels to stop them sinking ...

Re: Wedding attire on invitations

We had Dress: Formal this was under the RSVP date. We expected men in suits with a jacket and tie, and ladies in either long dresses (not formal gowns) or skirt/top combination. This is exactly what we got, with the exception of a skanky cousin (who is old enough to know better) who looked like she ...

Re: May 2012

Hehe yep we're back already :) Only had 9 days away, couldn't afford any more after the wedding lol.

We're still totally buzzing right now! Getting a kick out of referring to DH as "my husband" (which I didn constantly while we were away hehe). I totally want to do the WHOLE day again :)

Re: Etsy - Average delivery times from the US?

The service you've received sounds most unlike the sellers on etsy. I have always received a tracking number for every purchase.
I would be concerned after 4 weeks, but if they have good feedback it is really our of your control(but i also worry about everything lol)

Re: Do wedding dresses have visible seams??

I have two layers of silk underneath (no seams) and three layers of tulle on top- the outer most layer has a seem down each side, but I only noticed this when she seamstress was pinning the whole thing to take it in and she happened to mention it
