omg I am so exhausted but just wanted to check in quickly! Yesterday was the most perfect day - I can't even explain how perfect it was. I've never been so happy in my life! Everyone was saying it was the best wedding they've been to. I'll do a proper write-up tomorrow and post some photos :)

Congrats girls! I believe we are all married now!!!!! Can't wait to see more pics - Donna just saw yours on face book - GORGEOUS!!!!!!
I'm still in Fiji but not for much longer. Our trip is being cut short and we head home tomorrow, DH broke his ankle today and has to get surgery! So my advise to every one, make sure you have travel insurance!!!!! So glad i won't go anywhere with out. So no honeymoon for me yet, was ment to start tomorrow when family left.
Got heaps of photos of the Hindu wedding and can't wait to put them up.
Now to continue waiting for our flight details to be emailed. Its 1am :cry:

Congrats ladies! I look forward to seeing all your photos and hearing about how it went. Glad you had a wonderful day, it's truly an amazing feeling. People are still talking about our wedding 3 weeks later and how fantastic it was. It's so great when everything comes together perfectly. Now you have the honeymoon to look forward to!

I can't believe all us March girls are now done!

I'm so upset - just called DH and had a whinge and he - do not worry we will take it to the jewellers on thursday to
look at. I'm like - no - call them now and yell at them!!! If it was his band i'm sure he be on the phone

dropped if on thursday ansd showed the jeweller - he thinks it must have split along the joint
when i lifted something heavy and the weight angled in the right spot on the band to cause it to
break. Could not remember lifting anything heavy but then remember i had to help move an oven
in the showroom on monday so might have been that. Anyway - its being repaired and i should hav eit
back again by sunday.

know how you feel - i come back all the time and its like ghost town - i say we all vow now that no matter what
that even thou we do not have weddings to plan we still drop in for a chat and see how everyone is enjoying married
life. I know we have our pro shots to put up soon, etc but you girls all became like an extended family and i
do not want to miss having a talk now and then.

Which ones did you get? I'm trying to organise the thank yous but not sure the best/easiest way to to do. 'The photographer is touching up the photo to send us for the thank yous and I'll have to get cracking on it.

I agree we should all drop in here to keep in touch!

i got two styles - i did the normal postcard size with an uploaded photo and then i also ordered the over-size postcard style which i have folded in half
like a card and have photo on either side plus a thank-you message on the inside. I was not sure that the oversize would work so ordered the standard
postcards as just in case back-ups. No need to worry, the oversized made into cards worked perfect.

DSC02873.JPG


the above is the standard vistaprint postcard - double sided - grey scale on the back and in a gloss finish.


below is the oversized postcard that has been folded in half to form a double sided thank-you card as we coulod not pick between the pictures

wow. love those thank you cards. i would have used Vista print too if i was in Melb. but since i am not, i am making e-cards with my wedding photos.

i am using this site
http://www.smilebox.com/

you can either just send it for free - where they have an ad on the side, which you don't really notice. or you can do a 14 day free trial - which then there is no ads. (just remember to cancel before they charge you after 14 days)

what i have done is to personalise them - depending on who i am sending it to, if i have a photo of them from the wedding, then i will include it. more work for me, but i think people will appreciate it.

i agree funky, i hope we can all come back and have a chat. i think we have a really nice group of girls here!!

oh bugs - i love that idea of thank-yous especialy the invidual photos with the friends. I hope you do not mind if i sort of borrow it. I have some lovely shots with some of my closest friends and i might have to add a copy of the photos in the
card as well.

I'm currently trying to put together a parents album on memento - think i come up with the layout but still tweaking it
and also waiting on memento to have a discount sale :D
Was going to get parents thru pro but at $250 each - i rather try myself at half that price and also DH has his heart set
on these new style of albums with acrylic photo covers -looks absolutely fantastic but at $1300 each :o may be out of our budget. Trying to convince him the standard $600 album they do is fine even thou our parents are chipping in half the costs as our wedding present.

of course i dont mind! thats the great thing of sharing ideas here, so others can benefit from them if they think its useful.

speaking of ideas, here is another thing i am looking into. i haven't used them yet, so its not a recommendation as such, but i am planning to use them when i get around to it.

http://www.somersetalbums.com/index.asp

From what i understand, they sell flushmount albums. which from my very limited knowledge is the same type of album that professional photographers sell. where as i think snapfish etc, theirs is more like a photo book where are pages are floppy? sorry, i am no expert on these things.

they seem to be cheaper than a professional album. but i have not looked in to postage, so it might all work out the same.

anyway, hope its helpful for someone.
