Yeah but then I'll be in jail and then I wouldn't be able to get married anyways! I guess it just depends on how good you are at your job :P

Very excited for the next few weeks. Our budget is roughly 12000 so we're putting aside 200 a week which at the end will give us that 12000.
But we're moving in roughly six weeks (maybe a few weeks after that, depends when the house sells, but we'll say six weeks) and in that time hoping to save 700 a fortnight which means when we should have saved about 2 thousand we'll have four thousand tucked away.
That will reduce our weekly budget but we're still going to put aside the 200 so that at the end of it, we should have an extra 2 thousand, just to kick start our savings again.
Never thought I'd be so excited to save money :P

LOL I'm guessing that means you'd be the one locking me in jail and throwing away the key!

Im the same jessie,, I've been saving every single penny I can, not only for the wedding but for our big move to melb and a new bub!! Normally I cant save a dime, but being preggers, I havnt been spending anything on clothes or useless things and it actually feels good!! But I know as soon as bubs is out and we are in melb I'll need a good splurge :P

I havnt been doing much wedding stuff over the last week......... Except for stalking etsy :oops:

I think I may of found my B/M's jewellery :) Just waiting on one of the girls to send me a pic of their dresses so I can see if they match, cos they have the dresses down in melb!!!!

so they sent me a pic, although its not great quality (stupid iphone cameras!) and the pic doesn't do any justice to the dress, I cant decide if the jewellery will match, I think it will :?

photo2.JPG

The dress is very flowy and beachy which is exactly what I wanted for them, specially for a summer wedding, and I didnt want anything formal or OTT! And looks great on tanned skin (fake tan of course!) Its also going to have a braided style belt (im obsessed with braids and plaits!)

and these are they jewellery sets, I wanted them to wear pearls ...and they are a bargain at $35 per set I think!


What do you girls think??

Wow, I have the exact same dress but it's white and the bottom is a really light purple colour.
I love the jewelery but I think it depends on how long the necklace is.
With that kind of dress, I'm of the opinion that it's either long, like below the bust long or short, like almost choker length.
But I DO love the set, it's stunning, Bec. Good choice. :heart:

Great minds think alike jessie! :P

I was just having a convo with the etsy seller about changing the length, because at the moment they are only on a 22" chain, so it sits above the cleavage, but i've asked if she can do a 36" chain so it sits under the bust line cos I want them long!!! She said she could do it at no extra charge!

So for $70 for earrings, necklaces and shipping Im happy!

Plus i'll be able to borrow them off my sis after the wedding, so I can wear them!!! :e_clap: :wink:

Haha we must have really similar taste, Bec!
That's such a good price, I've been stalking etsy all week.
Now I just have to decide what I like best out of all the stuff I like :lol:

Money is a little tight for us at the moment, which SUCKS.

My mum called yesterday and goes "Umm, do you want the boxes upon boxes of stuff that is in your old bedroom?" so I went to have a look and there is literally boxes upon boxes of CD's and elecxtronics that I hid up there when I was about 14 or 15. Add all that stuff to all the DVDs and such that we have here that we want to get rid of, aswell as some of the jewlery and dolls that I make and were going to market.

So ive worked out how were funding our wedding. Mum is already paying $5000 off th reception, plus my wedding dress, FH's parents keep mentioning some mysterious money, but it has no set amount and hasnt appeared so im not holding my breath. Our wedding will be funded with alot of stalls at the market. Even when we run out of electronics and such, I work a split shift and am home from 11am-1:30pm every day, I can spend the time sewing and making things, as I have chests of craft supplies and fabrics.

Its made me excited about wedding planning again because I can now afford it again.

That's really great, Cab =) It sucks when you want to plan it all but it gets depressing when you're stressing about how to pay for it!!
FH and I were stressing big time at the start, when we were looking for venues and stuff, trying to figure out how we were going to pay for it all until we just said one day
Enough. We figured out what was important to us eg getting married and what wasn't so important eg going out and spending money on things we don't need :P
Lets hope we can stick that for a whole year :(
What kind of stuff do you sell?
