You can always google wedding checklists as well. They have really comprehensive ones and then you can remove things that dont apply to your wedding etc. Congratulations!!

Congrats Shelly!
Tarz suggestion is a really great list of first off things.
Does your venue include your ceremony or are you getting married in a church or somewhere outdoors? I'd book that next if it's not included!

Congrats on the dress, Tarz! Can't wait to see it on!

Bec those sandles are lovely, did you order the first or second ones?

I have a question for you guys. For our engagement party I want to wear a red dress. Do any of you know of a really nice red dress that is out at the moment?


I friend of mine wore a STUNNING red dress for her hens nigt last weekend and she got it from Sheike http://www.sheike.com.au/index.html
I can't see it pictured online, she brought it in store... its a fitted red dress with one sholder and the sholder is a bunched frill, she looked amazing in it. They have a lot of other nice dresses too


Ooh thanks for that. I will have to check it out.

Just had a look at your venue, Shelly, it's stunning! Lucky you!

I know what you mean about bargains, Eunice, I always seem to miss out on everything in terms of saving money.
No fair.

Thanks it is a great place, i love it.... Have the ceromony on the balcony, then the reception inside, the doors open right up onto the balcony, so once the ceromony is over and we gone for photos, there will be tables brught out to the balcony....
