Re: Invitation Wording - No Children

"Although children are most welcome at the ceremony, we ask that only nursing infants attend the reception."

Re: What did u want 2 buy but didn't due to unavailability/cost

I am doing a lot of DIY for the sake of things being so overpriced. Table decorations cost a fortune and rental fees are through the roof. I really would like to have ceiling drapes with fairy lights at my reception as I have seen them displayed, but they cost $550 for the evening which is a bit ste...

Looking for an afforable reception dress - need help

So I have the most beautiful wedding gown but it has a long train and even bustled up it is heavy. I like to have a good dance and be comfortable after having a big meal, so I have decided to get a shorter dress that looks fun and pretty. I tried on some Sherri Hill dresses the other day and loved t...

Re: Hens Day/Night!!

I have been to a Hen's Night were they had a Taboo Party - it was free to have one and the consultant ran some games and was really funny. Good entertainment and we liked the products (they had romance and novelty stuff, not just sex toys) and they were affordable. Through them we got a discount off...

Re: The mention of insurance and suppliers go running!

I've had that problem with entertainment! The band/dj said that they are always covered under club's liability insurance so didn't have it.

My wedding is having a butterfly theme so possibly different butterfly...

Re: Did you have "the moment" with your dress?

I looked at dresses in stores and probably tried on ten and there was one that I stayed in and admired for a lot longer than the others but I still wasn't sold on it. Later on when I was looking online, I found a second-hand Maggie Sottero dress that was well within my budget and looked nicer than a...

Re: Brides with cold feet?

Thanks - I will be chatting with a professional soon about my fears regarding commitment. It's more so a lack of trusting in my own judgement and perfectionist issues that are getting to me. I don't really care that much for the wedding - I want the marriage, yet I have trouble committing to anythin...

Brides with cold feet?

I love my fiance. I don't have anyone else in mind that I would rather be with. When we got engaged I was so excited and really thrilled to be planning a wedding. Our date is in December and as it gets closer the more scared I am becoming: what if I have picked the wrong guy? What is there is someon...

Re: Wedding Organiser Spreadsheet

It helps to get quotes through email. That way there is no direct confrontation. I am always very polite when emailing them and I am yet to meet a vendor who isn't happy to discount their price!

Getting your home photo ready

There was a fantastic article I read by a photographer about making your home photo ready - little things that are easy to forget but make a big difference:

Re: my tips for photos

Great tip. My photographer was wonderful when we sat down for our first meeting. She asked me me names of family, bridal party and most importantly asked me about what kind of photos I wanted. For example, we want a 50/50 balance of photos of us and photos of the bridal party. Also, she asked about ...

Re: Beach wedding shoes

I have seen some beautiful foot jewellry worn while on the sand (you can make it yourself. Beaded around the second toe then up around the ankle) and then after the ceremony change into whatever shoes you want.

Sex toy parties are heaps fun. I highly recommend Taboo Parties for anyone in Newcastle/Sydney region. Their products were heaps affordable but really great quality and the the consultant was great! They are completely free.

Re: Kids at the reception

I am in a similar situation - lots of people coming in from interstate and with young kids they can't leave behind. I suggest having them set up in a different room and hire a few baby sitters (or ask the parents to contribute some money towards it if your budget is tight - I am sure they won't mind...

Re: Bridesmaids dresses in Sydney

Really depends what you are after. I find that it's a lot cheaper to buy off the rack. I am getting my girls dresses at Forever New. The dresses are gorgeous with beading through them and cost around $100 each, where as buying from a bridal store in a minimum of $350 for a basic dress.
