i am so excited we have found our ceremony location i emailed the town council to get booking info and the guy that emailed back was nasty to me and he was like there is no point booking so early and said if i still would like to book now the booking form was attached, ppl like that annoy me, sorry i wanna get the big stuff booked early so we don't miss out on anything and we will be well prepared.

just wondering if any of you girls are being told "why are you thinking about this now? you still have so long to go!" or "wow your early! i wouldn't worry about that yet!"

Does it make your blood boil like mine?? :evil:

I'm getting it all the time and am SO over it! Just because we are planning things now somehow we are being unreasonable?? :roll: I don't understand how it even impact other people or how it's any of their business.. but that's it, my rant is over hahaha :lol: ... just wondering if any one else is getting the same responses. :?:

thanks girls
talk later

While I am not a 2012 bride 2 be, I am a 2011 bride and we got engaged May of 2008 ! thats pretty much when my planning started and YES I got the "why are you planning now" shutdown all the time.

Trust me it doesn't last but you may hear it up until at least 18months out !

Just block the negativity out and do what you want ! It's your wedding after all :P

Springbride, I was just thinking about this the other day!

Obviously, the people closest to us have been nothing but supportive & encouraging, but I do find whenever people ask me about the wedding the usual reaction is suprise that we are already planning. The way I look at, it's our day. If we want to plan 2 years out then that's what we're going to do :) It's doubled our budget, and given us alot more time to look around and make sure we do it exactly how we want to. I'm pretty sick of explaining that to people though!

The only thing that annoys me is the few vendors I have enquired with that show next to no interest in answering questions because it's so far away. Thankfully most people have been fantastic :)

So glad I'm not the only one!! :)

Yep its happening to me too and i just want to scream at them but when i say hey least i have heaps of time and can pay it off especially with two kids they step back a bit THANK GOD bugger them is all i can say your day your way ive been lucky the vendors so far have been super nice to me and cause we booking so early they waving the huge deposit and can pay it off well thats soooo far so pros and cons i guess......i think my main offender is my MOH she has 4 kids works soccer blah blah and when i say she doesnt have 1/2 hour now to look at colours and dress styles whats she gonna be like closer hence getting onto it now she settles but still ready to SCREAM

Wow Bells! You are sooo organised!! What kind of dress have you got? How very exciting! I've looked around a little bit (more one of my BM took me out and made me try some on - haha) but have yet to find what I want.

Trennie - we're getting married on our anniversary as well! Our 8th, which still shocks me! haha

Hope everyones planning is going well! We've got our BM dresses sorted out, jewllery sorted, we have just decided on ceremony location, and have a pretty good idea where we want our reception. And that's about it really. We've already been engaged for
over 8 months - the time has flown!

Couldn't agree more. I am also a 2011 bride, but I have been planning for 2 years now!! I have found this sooo much easier as I can just do bits when I have the time and I actually enjoy the planning rather thn feeling burdened by it!! Time flies and I would definitely recommend starting to plan now!! Goodluck 2012 brides, it will be here before you know it!!

Im not to sure about you lovely ladies but so far im so wrapped of having a 2 year planning process....apart from the fact i cant wait it has been plus plus and more plus so far...

We have chosen our dream ceremony and reception place andd due to it being in 2012 we get the massive deposit wavered cause we paying it off and also had an option to look at other dates we were going to have october but i wouldnt be able to have the beautiful reception room as its a min of 90 and i hope to have round the 70 mark also the reception was gonna cost us over 10 000 which i cant justify with two kids that need stuff so we looking at the winter special which is half price, min of 50 in that room and is so affordable.....so now looking at 25th of august so excited!!!

We have chosen our colour scheme of black, white, blue with hints of yellow which looks awesome together.

We have chosen bridesmaid dress which is sooooo sexy and flattering i sometimes wish it was my dress lol (just kidding)

We have also worked out the hens day i call it im not into the go out get drunk etc nothing agains it thats just me so some girls and i are going round to the vinewards on horse and carriage tasting wine, olives etc then going to a spa treatment for a full body relaxation for the afternoon the works mani, pedi, massage, spa treatment facial etc.....so looking forward to that one

Well i hope all you lovely ladies are having as muc h fun and im not sure bout you but is the time going really quick already?? before we know it itll be our turn whoohoo

I completely agree! I love having heaps of time to look around and have all the time to find exactly what we want. FH and I work long hours, so having that time up our sleeve really helps....

Your colour scheme sounds so nice!! We've gone purple & silver... not all that excting, but we both love purple so it was a no brainer :)

Time sure is flying! I can't wait to see everyone's plans develop :D

Dannie it will be our 4th anniversary :D

i went shoppig with 2 of my bridesmaids last weekend, and found my dress!!!!!!!! :D nothing like what i was thinking of having but the girls said that my face just lit up when i saw myself in the mirror and i just stood there in the dress while they tried on bridesmaids dresses. tried on a couple of other dresses after the one but my reaction wasnt the same, and the fact that one of my girls almost started crying when she saw me told me it was the one!! we also found bridemaids dresses that match really well, and are in FH favourite colour! our theme was going to be green/black with a touch of purple somewhere but now with the dresses being purple iv decieded to change our theme to purple/silver. will still try and add some green somewhere as its my favourite colour.

oh and the best part...........my wedding dress and 3 bridesmaids dresses in total will cost about $1,500!!!!!!! :D

good luck to everyone with all your planning, i love that i have 2 years to plan (god knows i need it) but i also hate that i have to wait that long to be married
