I second that, you girls put me to shame! I am nowhere near as organised and have under 5months to go 8O Eeek!

I'm trying to sort music at the moment girls here is what I have so far:

Ceremony
Processional: Canon in D - similar to this arrangement
Signing register: Smile – Uncle Cracker, and something else???
Recessional: You Set Me Free – Michelle Branch

Reception
Announcements: Spotlight – Mutemath
First dance: Crazier – Taylor Swift; Today was a fairytale – Taylor Swift (Either one, or maybe both, one following the other) :e_think:
Father Daughter Dance: Dream – Priscilla Ahn
Cake cutting: If it’s love - Train
Bouquet toss: Fool for love – Stefy

What do you think ladies?? Also any suggestions for a register signing song - I'm all out of music :P

Jodie, what do i put in a s&t? I would love to do one :)

Nep, I am working on music at the moment as well :) I will add my list tomorrow :)

Well its my birthday today, had a good day except at 11pm last night Den had to rush me to hospital due to a massive bleed :( They done a scan and both bubs are healthy and bleeding wasn't coming from them but apparently I have a ruptured Ovarian Cyst! It didn't hurt for awhile to start with but when it hit,boy did it hit and the pain is still there now. I have now decided to spend the weekend in bed with my laptop and onl get out for bathrrom breaks as im terrified this cyst rupture is going to harm the twins :(

A good note, my friend and (a BM) bought me my reception veil for my birthday and I took it out of the bag tonight and out it on and fell in love! Love it sooo much and I cannot wait to wear it for my wedding next year :)

Mrs 2 be - your S&T can have all of your set plans, inspiration, proposal story etc...even if you don't have everything set in stone, it's still a great place to keep all of your ideas, and give everyone else an idea as to how you imagine your wedding :)

HapPY BiRthDaY!!! I hope you get pampered all weekend, especially after your hospital trip...i'm sure bleeding while you're pregnant would be scary and stressful, even if they say it's not done any harm. keep safe. (if only we could push things through the computer...i'd bake up some cupcakes and send them through :P)

music is kind of on hold for us - i'm a musician, so there will be other muso's there, i'm hoping they'll play during the ceremony. i just don't know exactly what combination of instruments i'm going to have, so i'll work out what'll work when i know that. FH and i are supposed to be making a list of songs for the DJ, but that hasn't happened either! i'm terrible with song names, so its tough!

Ohh everyone's plans are coming along! Yay!

Neptune- great music choices! For our signing we are using can you feel the love tonight by Elton John. We are stuck on our 1st Dance song tho.

Mrs 2 Be - Happy Birthday!!!!!!! Hope you were spoilt, and definitely rest up. I agree with Jodie, don't change your BM dresses Hun. Have what you like. When I 1st went shopping with my BMs I let them just try on what they liked and I wasn't happy at all. I ended up with the dresses I love and everyone is happy :) that's no good your photographers don't show up! How did you go with Nev?

Amberino- that's so great you have music covered! Very cool your a musician. Do you have any suggestions for 1st dance songs??? FH and I can't agree. We had 'tiny dancer" by Elton John but went off that and were thinking of "when you say nothing at all" by Ronan Keating but we honestly can't agree lol. I love all Taylor swift songs too.

This weekend I ordered my wedding cookies!!! So excited!! The girls at our wedding will have ones with my exact dress :)

Mrs 2 Be, Happy Birthday! Great day for it! Was my birthday on Friday too.
Hope you are feeling better soon, how scary for you.


We haven't done much wedding planning in the last few weeks, I've been busy with jni, sick kids etc etc.

Robby, Thanks for the birthday wishes hun!! No We havn't seen Nev yet, I wanted to save the best for last :D I have decided the dresses will stay the colour the girls like but I will not be changing anything about them, the girls can just put up with them!! I did get spoilt! Had a rough day at first as without fail every morning on my birthday before 8am my nan would call to wish me a happy birthday and to not get that call this year pretty much broke my heart but I know she is here with me. Ohhhh Wedding Cookies YUMMMM!!!! What about This I promise you by Ronan Keating?? Its a beautiful Song. We are having it for our Recessional and the link is in my 1st post tonight.

Amberino, Thanks Hun!! Thankyou for my Cupcakes through the computer :D I will do an S&T tomorrow!

Ohhhh thanks Hun! Great song. I :heart: Ronan Keating.
I think we will end up having "When you say nothing at all". FH just needs to think it was his idea.... lol.
FH and I went through our ceremony wording tonight and our vows :) Will post them up tomorrow.

We found this reading which I absolutely love!!

The Promise by Eileen Rafter
The sun danced on the snow with a sparkling smile,
As two lovers sat quietly, alone for a awhile.
Then he turned and said, with a casual air
(Though he blushed from his chin to the tips of his hair),
"I think I might like to get married to you".
"Well then", she said, "Well there's a thought
But what if we can't promise to be all that we ought,
If I'm late again when we plan to go out.
And I know I can't promise, but I'll learn to ignore
dirty socks and damp towels strewn all over the floor.
So if we can't vow to be all that we should
I'm not sure what to do, though the ideas quite good".
But he gently smiled and tilted his head
Till his lips met her ear and softly he said,

"I promise to weave my dreams into your own,
That wherever you breathe will be my hearts home.
I promise thatwhether with rags or with gold I am blessed,
Your smile is the jewel I will treasure the best.
Do you think then my love, we should marry do you?
"Yes", she said smiling, "I do".

I'm starting to pull my finger out, very slowly... I'm just so lazy when it comes to all this wedding stuff. I did notice this morning that it's 11months to go exactly today, so I should start being a little more pro-active and all that.

FH and my parents recently decided an e-party was needed, mainly because FH and I have been together for 3 years, engaged for 18months, and our families have never met each other... we really don't want the first time they mingle to be at the wedding, because that would just seem rude/awkward. So now I'm trying to rustle up a little dinner party in a Sydney restaurant for sometime in the next 7-8 weeks.. should be interesting.

We had to go into the city yesterday to get some friends a wedding present (we're pretty tight on cash at the moment...and their registry was all quite expensive, I feel cheap! Ohwell...)

but...FH suggested we have a look at wedding bands just to get some ideas...
We went to about 5 or 6 jewellery stores (including tiffanys!) and got a good idea of what we both want. FH decided that he actually likes really simple bands - his favourite was a thick, round, heavy plain platinum ring at tiffanys, but for $3k, he's decided to look elsewhere :P he did find another one that looked relatively plain but had a few diamonds set into the sides of the band...but it's a discontinued style at the store. He's going to ask the jeweller who made my e-ring for a quote to make our wedding bands so he can get something similar..

Where is everyone :(

Just updated my S&T with pics ladies :D

Amberino, That is soo sweet your FH wanted to look at rings!! :heart: Everytime I mention rings to Den his reply is 'Oh do I need one?' :roll:

Ashie, Good Luck with your Engagement party!!

I added the long link for my S&T to my sig but just a question, How do i get it to just say MY S&T but still be the link?? I think Jodie and Neptune have theirs like that? I am lost when it comes to things like this,lol.
