That sucks about chasing up RSVPs Neptune! I don't understand how it is so difficult for some people :roll:

My FMIL is driving me crazy at the moment! She is questioning absolutely everything about the wedding. It's nice she is showing interest but she's not exactly being nice about it...
Oh and she seems to think we should have a lunch with her and the family the day of the wedding!!! Uh No!!! Poor FH I know he just wants to relax before it and she keeps trying to make him do things with the family... Does she not understand this is one of the biggest days of his life!?! :twisted:

Happy New Year WC girls!!!

JJ that's just crazy hun! I can't beleive she wants to have a lunch on the wedding day.. There's no way I would be. Some people with weddings (especially family members) seem to forget that the big day is about you two and what you want. How many other days are there to have family lunch (like the followng day AFTER the wedding). This is something my grandmother would want. My grandmother can be really horrid sometimes with the wedding plans.. I showed her my hair trial and her response was "how much are you paying for THAT?" I nearly cried! I can't wait to see the look on her face when she realises we're having the dogs there and doing the cake cutting at the ceremony.. she will die!! :twisted:

We've so far had one decline.. we've had alot of people not sending the RSVP cards back but instead saying 'we're coming obviously.. Do you still want the card back?' of course I think I would sound like a dill if I said "yes I want the card back" so I've just put them down as coming. Makes me a little bit annoyed, as why would I bother spending money on them if people just assume I would know if they were coming. Drives me bonkers!! We've got less than half our cards back and the RSVP date is only a week away. I can't understand why people aren't using them?! We've had one decline for no reason and it was Allan's family. I think he was a bit miffed as there was no reason and they were reasonably close. We won't make a deal out of it.. kind of works out well as I was hoping a few would decline to be honest! LOL

Finally got my centrepieces decided on.. I was that over trying to decide that I just went with the suggestions of the decorater. I'm having tall vases with willow with artificial cherry blossoms which ties in my invitations. Was over it! Glad it's done!

Allan has just gone for his bucks week.. he's having a week at the cricket. Lucky him!
Groomsmen getting their suits measured up next week.

2 weeks till my hens.. getting excited. Going shopping with a few girls to find an outfit!

Hey girls,

Its 5 weeks till my wedding and i am feeling a bit stressed out. I can understand your troubles with the RSVP's i have had a lot of people either assume i would know they are coming or just tell me yes i am coming and not bother RSVPing.I have also have had people send xmas cards to my FMIL and tell her they are coming but haven't bothered tell us. I have been a bit bridezillaish and have been a bit demanding about sending me the envelope... but i still have heaps of people to chase and the RSVP is 12th. so we should see what happens...
other then that we are meeting with the venue this weekend and picking up the bombonieries, and meeting our celebrant again to finalise the the ceremony.
Hens is on the 15th so only 2 weeks away, exiting, have no idea what the girls have planned, meeting at my place and then all i know is the first part is at my house then we go onto a boat... really looking froward to it... the theme is "Red carpet" need to find an outfit.

Hope all your plans are going well too

Eeeek all our weddings are soooo soon! 8O

LMW- your centrepieces sound gorgeous!! Thats soooo frustrating about your rsvps!! I was a bit bridezilla and but the rsvp date before xmas so I wouldn't have to chase people.... they were still late tho! I hope you have a great hens night hun.

Amanda- I think its normal to be nervous, I feel like that sometimes too. It's a pretty big day :) Have fun on your hens too.

Twiggy- not long to go at all!! Very annoying about having to chase people, some people just don't get it do they... Ohhh your hens theme sounds great! Goodluck dress shopping!

Neptune- well done on the progress!! Must feel great to tick things off the list :)

As for me I haven't done much wedding wise I have been pretty lazy TBH... I need to send out emails to confirm vendors and pay the final amounts. Also need to finish off our ceremony bubbles, seating chart, finalise bonbonierrie (was waiting on final rsvps for the names on the cookies). FH is off to find shoes and a belt this week and I have my final dress fitting in a few weeks.

Its soooooo soon!!!!

I'm so excited about everyone's weddings - I just walk around all day with a huge grin. We are all getting married NEXT MONTH!!! :heart:

I know, me too!! Can't wait :)

Sounds like you are all SUPER organised!

i am feeling kind of OK... considering we still don't have a caterer (the gorgeous caterer lady got a job and now can't do our wedding). A girl DP used to work with wants to do it, but she may be in Melb - hoping to find out today. She's a pastry chef and lovely, so she'd be awesome.

I've started a little bit of the cooking and am planning a big week of cooking next week with a girlfriend.

I've nearly finished my eldest daughter's dress - designed by her, upcycled from Op Shop formal dresses. I think it's gorgeous. Will post pics when it's completely done. I'm very proud of myself!

Happy wedding vibes to everyone xx
