So just to check if I'm running on schedule (I'm a major control and organisational freak :roll: ), what has everyone already organised/booked?

I've only got my venue (which includes ceremony/reception/catering) and celebrant booked. I'm currently trying to get FH to look at photographers so we can book one ASAP.

I am currently looking at dresses and getting ideas for cakes and invitations (both DIY). And thinking about makeup/hair. But as my wedding is midweek, I'm not in a huge hurry.

Lizzyrose- whenever I think I'm disorganized, I always tell myself that most people organize their wedding in less than a year!

You have done a couple of the major things (I think photographer is the next big one!) so don't stress! Everyone will do things in a different order :)

We've only booked our venue, caterer and photographer... haven't even looked at celebrant yet! So I wouldn't stress too much... but agreed with amberino that photographer is the next big one... we don't have a ceremony venue yet as we cant decide but I'm sure thats one of the first thing most brides arrange first! - Celebrant is ours next on the list for us...

I went dress shopping on the weekend.. my S&T has a link to the dress that I think is the one.. I'm planning another trip down to Perth with MOH & both BMs (only MOH and BM1 could make it). I think I'll have to try to get a day or two off work so I'm not trying to jam it all into a Saturday.

I've done an invite mock up with my sample from Cards and Pockets but I'm not feeling the love... I'll have to order some more samples and also try to print on the pre-cut card.. has anyone else done this??? We just have a Canon printer but I'm not sure if I need a special one.... maybe I'll have to try to sneak it in a work somewere.... but how would I hide 70 plus the 70x4 inserts?!!

Hi Ladies,

I am 9th April- like you Nixella! We have been planning engaged for 12 months now and still 12 to go but thinking about how fast the last 12 have gone has made me realise our weddings will be here before we know it!!

We have booked the venue (Fiji) and this includes ceremony, accomodation, reception, serenaders, cake. I have also bought my dress (which I am regretting doing so early cause I dont think I love it anymore :( Next step for us to arrange will be the photographer.

Thanks Jodie! The way the designer works is more "work in progress" rather than here's your set design and that's what I'm making. The dress shape gets perfected in calico, then you don't do anything with material until a couple of months before the wedding..

You're still a year out, don't stress about STD's..you're still giving people heaps of notice!! We got most of ours out a couple of weeks ago and were told 'you're getting these out a bit early aren't you?'....bleh!

Lol yeah, ours need to come out though, as we have family over the other side of aus lol so they need confirmation :?

I hate that! I am being told I'm getting too organised but I would rather get it done now than have nothing done later on!

Yay someone else getting married on 9th April :P Still can't believe its only a year away. It'll be here before we know it! Am waiting on a design proof of our STD's which should be through by Thursday. I want them out asap as the majority of our guests will need to travel and accommodation in the area can be expensive.

Hi Girls

Add another one for 16 April 2011....we're having a destination wedding in Port Douglas

So far we have my ring, we've booked the chapel, minister and services of wedding planner.
We're heading up to PD next week to check out reception venues and photographers - YAY can't wait!
I also found my dream dress four months ago. I'm getting measured for it tomorrow and it will take six months for the order to come through. A little early, i know, but the price was great and about to go up :roll:

Look forward to sharing our stories :heart:
