The door bell rang just after 6:30 and I answered and there was a man there and he said "Hi my name is John and I'm your limo driver" I was like "Limo?" I was so excited, there was a big stretch limo outside waiting for us.


Nice!!! :D A limo is a great surprise!!

Tan984 and Snooky - glad you both had fun nights. It is good being spoilt.

Now back to the planning.
Picked up my dress today!! I love it, my aunt did a wonderful job and I owe her a big gift as a thank you.
Down to final details, checking flowers still ok etc. I'm loving the count down. Getting more excited every day.

How are we all, it's exactly a month for me today! How exciting, mum and I measured out all the jelly belly's yesterday we're having 2 crystal bowls per table full of strawberry cheesecake and cappucino flavoured jelly belly's. It was so hard not to eat them all we had over 3kgs! Still underdecided about table names, don't want to do numbers cause I don't like the thought of people thinking they're not important cause they're on table 7 not table 2.
Good example of this last night when MIL was looking over my table seating chart and as it was a rough draft I had a spreadsheet with table 1 to table 7 and it just so happen that the inlaws and their family were under table 7. MIL looked at me and said "Oh so are we at Table 7" So then I had to explain that it was just a draft blah blah blah. Aghhh how annoying!

OK- all RSVP's in and only two days after the RSVP- gotta love my family and friends!

now to do the place cards and seating plans- i think that the seating plans might be a bit of a nightmare- not really looking forward to it.

I have my last dress fitting on Tuesday and will hopefully pick it up- so exciting!!

3 weeks to go tomorrow for me!

Wooohooo, how did you go??? My hen's night was awesome - we had a few drinks and games at my cousin's hotel, then went to the Brazililan Touch theatre restaurant, then had a few drinks at the casino, then chilled out back at my cousin's hotel. Was so much fun. I am glad that I never felt really drunk, unlike my fiance who passed out twice and puked three times 8O men!

Hello Ladies,

I'm new to this whole forum thing, but am suddenly seeing that I'm not as organised as i thought I was and about to have a break down LOL.

Hint of lavender is the theme to our wedding. With gold and cream being the main colours.

Getting married and having reception at Butleigh Wootton in Melbourne. Got my final appointment with them tonight.

I cant believe how time flys, Im in denial LOL

Hi Guys!
Well its been awhile since ive posted in here... and OMG can you believe it is october already!!?? I suppose I am one of (lucky?) ones here that still has the whole month, being an Oct 31st bride!
We're pretty much on target i think... only a few things to do, I suppose I should organise final appts with vendors but it is a bit difficult being from another state! Im just hunting around at the moment finding inspiration pics which is always fun :)
My hens is on the weekend of the 17th, a girly weekend away, but then my MOH is organising a bridal shower for me the day before the wedding in coffs which will be fun, although wont be able to have too much champagne :(
Loving hearing all of the updates... keep it up! not long now girlys!

It kinda sunk in today that it's only a week and a day away! I can't believe it's October either - I was pondering it all today... thinking where did the year go? It will be Christmas soon!! September seems so far away from the end of the year but October doesn't! Last day of work for me tomorrow! I think I'm more excited about that than the wedding at this point hahah!
