We sent ours a few months back only coz we are all travelling 2 states away for the wedding..
Everyone is coming that we invited which is great.

Im going to get a hair trial done down here soon and am thinking about the whole fake tan vs moisuriser with a hint of fake tan in it.
I just want a bit of colour!!

When do you think the latest should be in posting them? We have sent STDs so they all know the date.

Also, what RSVP date did you put - how soon before the wedding?

We put out date 4 weeks before the wedding. Our venue requires final numbers 2 weeks before, so that gives us 2 weeks to chase up all the naughty people that dnt RSVP on time :roll:

Hi girls,

Been away for a few days and I come back to see we've smashed through 102 pages - Woot Woot! Go us Oct gals....

Well I picked up my dress :D :D It fitted perfectly and needs no alterations. I was really worried before I got there given I've not been able to do much of anything for the last 6 weeks after my surgery but I was stressing over nothing. It looks beautiful and I can't wait to wear it with my hair and makeup all done. In amongst all the excitement of the morning, I forgot to take my camera and didn't get another chance to try it on before we headed home so I am soooo spewing!! I have left it in Canberra with my brother and SIL until my final fitting 4 weeks before.

I also got my necklace and earrings as well. After hunting for what seems like forever for the 'right' set, I happen to stumble across the perfect ones in the store I bought my dress from. I will try and get some piccies of those later on when FH is not hanging about.

As for invites, ours are going out this week. I didn't get the chance last week (with school holidays and all). Most people are travelling to our wedding given we are in rural NSW but I have sent STD with a link to our website so guests could find out about the availability of accommodation and other services in our nearest town. We haven't actually put a date as such for our RSVP's. I did however supply a stamped return address envelope for people to use so that its a bit more convenient and people are more inclined to respond with. There is always a few that you have to chase up regardless of the date you put on there. I don't know why but some people just assume you know that are coming so they don't need to respond.

So some of you have had your hair trials (or a few) - did any of you get any photos?? What are you using for your inspiration? How many are wearing a clip/hair piece/accessory?? Are many wearing a veil??
