First Dance Song?

Okay ladies-

FH and I are struggling to find a first dance song? Any suggestions? What was your song? Would you be willing to share?

Bridesmaid Dress - opinions and reccs needed

Hi Ladies, So wedding planning has been going pretty swimmingly so far, once we got the venue, minister and dress locked down. But now I have hit a stumbling block with one of my bridesmaid dresses. I have bridesmaids scattered throughout the country and one is literally 3 hours away from the neares...

Re: Engagement Party - turn surprise wedding..

I can't help you with the surprise wedding, but in terms of venues on the river you could try the Toowong Rowing Club. They are right on the river on the UQ grounds, so photos can be in the Great Court.

Friends of ours got married there and could not speak highly enough about the service

Re: 2014 Brides

Oh My Gosh- I can't believe I am 7 months out! Time has flown so quickly. Massive update from us is we are moving to a completely different city! Wedding will still be in Brisbane in Jan, but we'll have to arrange the rest of it from NSW, just outside of Sydney. It has thrown a huge spanner in the w...

Re: 2014 Brides

I know what you mean KGs Girl! Last year I kept thinking why did I plan such a long engagement? If I was to have my time again, I would have made it much sooner- because now all my wedding planning excitement is kind of lulled and I haven't done stuff for ages! And with only 8 months to do- I kind o...

Re: 2014 Brides

Wow so much productivity!!! I have found a dress for one of my bridesmaids! (they aren't matching). We were having brunch and found it by absolute fluke!! I love having time to let fate take control of these things!!

Drinks Package vs. Bar Tab

What did you do and why? How did it work for you? We are trying to decide between the two atm. The bar tab has the potential to be a lot cheaper {up to $2000 less} and we're planning on setting the limit to what we would have spent on the drinks package, but then if that runs out, we're out, on the ...

Re: Choosing a Wedding Dress is giving me panic attacks

Hi Ladies, Thanks for the encouraging words. I don't expect myself to cry or anything like that, but I just kind of feel that to spend that much money on 1 dress I should love the dress, not just tolerate it. I am also concerned that I like the dresses less the second time I try them on. I have come...

Re: Choosing a Wedding Dress is giving me panic attacks

Don't put too much pressure on yourself, hun x Do you have a style of dress in mind and been trying on those specifically? Part of the problem is I have liked dresses in all styles, it really depends on my mood. I think if I had to pick one gun to my head I would go with a ball gown, just because w...

Re: bonbonerie

Just to throw my hat in the ring and add some more info on the topic, my fh got a frame and it just had his name in it in a nice font when he went to a mates wedding when we first starting dating. He put a photo of me in it and 3 years later- we're getting married! I think it shared the love of thei...

Re: 2014 Brides

Hi, Just thought I would say hello! My FH and I have been engaged for about 9 months, and have set the date for the first weekend of 2014. We have found a photographer, and bought wedding bands but still have everything else to do. Hopefully we'll have a venue by the end of the week (just waiting to...

Choosing a Wedding Dress is giving me panic attacks

So I was looking for some reassurance, because I am two weeks out from having to choose my wedding dress and the thought of making a decision is giving me anxiety attacks. My Mum will be in town and the only other time she will be here between now the the big day, is less that 6 months from the wedd...

Bridal Hair and Make-up

So we just met with a potential photographer (who we LOVED, she's going to be a blast having around on the day), but she recommended getting hair and makeup booked ASAP 8O . SO I was wondering if at just under 12 months out that is jumping the gun a little? What price range I should be expecting for...

Re: How do you ask some one to be a bridesmaid?
