you could always do felt and brooches. brooch flowers with the felt leaves?
Thats actually a great idea! I'll try it out and see how it looks, thanks!
Everyone said it would go fast, but it went pretty slow, at the 1 year mark I was wishing I just made it that year instead.
But I am glad for all the time to plan and not have to rush. With a month to go the time started going very fast.
Aha! Someone who is speaking from my side of the waiting hehe (most people who say it'll fly by had a less lengthy engagement hehe so how much can you really trust them? jks!)
Though i am surprised that they don't want to talk with you, I found that 2 years out, some photographers & venues were still fully booked - Bretts Wharf here in Brisbane had no saturday nights left for 2011 when i started looking at venues in March of 2010 & not all that many left for 2012, However if i was booking for 2013, i could have my pick of dates.
Do however see if you can get a menu & price listing for recpetion venues, yes they are going to change, but the menus seem to stay similar each year . Also, if I couldn't afford that much per head now, there was no way i could afford it in 18 months time, with one or two price rises in there..
No its not that they wont talk to me, it just feels pointless at this point in time to look, because I'm always of the mind that I might find something better, or that if I find something and I cant book it (having to wait until next yr or something) then it'll bug me more haha
Oh that's a tough one, about the booking the venues bit. I will be getting married around 2013 so I'm happy to wait until I have locked in a date before I can start planning anything. My ideas are in my head at the moment so I can keep on dreaming about my perfect wedding.
I'm so over dreaming haha I just wanna start planning now
Oh another thing (just wondering if its a virgo trait as i am one as well). Does it make you really nervous that you haven't got stuff locked in even though your ready to go? It does for me, hence why everything is already organised. I like to get this booked and sorted so far in advance ahah
Doesnt make me nervous, but it does annoy me a little bit
I like to have things planned and sorted and waiting just bugs me
I'm a little impatient, I guess haha.
We were engaged in August 2010 and the wedding is in May 2012. So a 1 year 9 month engagement. Don't lock stuff in too soon if you can avoid it. Obviously things like the date, venue and reception can be but for things like Dresses, flowers, jewellry allow yourself time to change your mind
Yup, only doing the dress thing no sooner than a year in advance (give me time to look around, save money etc)
Thanks guys, chatting about it does help!
