Forfirth that dress is AMAZING!!!
I absolutely love it.
I would have loved to wear a purple dress but I just couldn't do it. I am a big white dress girl with all the bling.
I am having a purple bouquet though.
And purple shoes and have ordered 2 necklaces. One is a purple pendant other is clear. Have also ordered a gorgeous cuff which has alot of purple. Not sure how they will go with my dress. Hopefully the jewellery will arrive before my dress does so I can take it all and try it.

Ooooh...

I'd like a go at this too!

My worries (but I don't really care)are the following not being a big hit:
1) Reception and Ceremony being 5 to 6 hours apart
2) No free parking at Westfields until 7pm. Dinner officially starts at 7pm! (They changed this on me 6 months after I booked and printed out invites)
3) Cootie Catchers for Wedding menu card
4) All my DIY stuff coming across as tacky? (i.e. tissue flowers for centerpieces, wishing well, guestbook, ring pillow)
5) Our quirky cake topper? Although I think our friends will get it...just not sure about the parent's guests.
6) Asian banquet might not bode well with all guests and vegetarian options will be poor
7) Dancefloor not a hit even though we hired a live band in the end
8) Oh and hopefully no one rocks up in the same dress as my bridesmaids cause we bought it from Forever New and they said it was a real popular dress...they even brought it back again into the stores this season!

Pretty much everything eh? I have no confidence in myself!

OOOH I was trying to find a way to incorporate this on my tables, great idea!


I have now had complaints about stating we want NO GIFTS!! No giftcards, no wishing well, no cash, no gifts period!! Some people just don't get it!

And a new change, FH and I are walking down the aisle together!!! 8O

Love the cootie catcher idea! They will look great! :)

I guess one thing that will be disliked by some at our wedding is that we didn't give people a plus one on the invites, and my cousins want to bring their boyfriends. I am about to contact them and say no, because we don't know them and are trying to keep costs down. I know it won't be too popular, but it's our wedding!

Hey all,

I am glad you like the cootie catchers idea! I am still struggling to make the template work at the moment but will post pics for sure once we perfect it.

I think my negatives could also be positives for some guests.

* Hunter Valley Location & having to stay over the night - some couples may really like the idea of going away for the weekend.
* Kids welcome to ceremony but not reception - some may enjoy the night away from kids
* Not inviting cousins under the age of 18, but cousins over 18 invited - Again some may enjoy not having to brings kids along (teenagers)

We're having a small wedding - really small - immediate family only. With both my parents coming from huge families this is an ongoing battle.
As its going to be such a small/intimate thing, its not going to be your typical ballroom, ballgown, huge cake, formal dinner - I am sure there will be comments about all of this.
Then the fact it is in a church which will suit FH's family, and will give my family a perfect excuse to *****.

oh well ..... its our day, and it will be lovely.
