Oh my gosh! I am starting to get stressed out! My wedding is in 12 weeks!!

And my wedding nightmares have started too!

The big things are all done, it's the gazillion smaller things I still need to work on.

I only sent out a handful on my invitations today. They are quite heavy, so I want to make sure a 60c stamp will get them to my guests before sending the lot.

ours ended up being $1.20 each....and $4.30 for the international
ones(!!!) as they were quite heavy (pocketfolds with a few inserts) and just too big to fit through the normal sized envelope
slot! Luckily we didn't have that many!

It's flying isn't it?! I nearly had a heart attack when I saw my last post in your S&T and it came up with a 2 first on my ticker!!

Yay! The handful of invitations I posted reached their destinations!
Mine did fit in a standard size envelope, but were just rather heavy with an insert, heart shaped mirror and little crystals.
So the rest got mailed today with 60c stamps :)

Time is flying, isn't it!?! Kind of unbelievable - the wedding used to seem like forever away and now it seems like tomorrow :)

84 days for us - and this afternoon we're off for our pre-wedding photo shoot. Can't wait! Our photographer has been away and only confirmed on Friday night, asking us to bring a love letter each. It's so hard to write things like that on demand, FH and I have both kind of struggled, hopefully they do their job :)

Can't wait to see your pics Amber, have fun doing the shoot!
If it's 84 days for you, that'd make it 83 for me! Better work out how to do a S&T so I know what I have left to do!

3 months exactly today!!

I can't help feeling that 3 months is so far and yet so soon all at the same time!

I've booked my first makeup trial for the beginning of March and had a meeting with the florist this week just gone as well. I told FH he wasn't to come (he just confuses things) and cut back on a few things he had added at the previous meeting (2 x $200 flower arrangements!) and added some aisle post thingys that will hang flower ball things (sorry I dont' know the right name for anything :oops: ) and some thankyou flower arrangements for our mothers.

Invites went out a couple of weeks ago and I've started to get RSVPs back already! I seem to get about 2 every few days or so - I love seeing that little green envelope in the letter box! Only a couple of declines so far and they were from my Nanna, Stepmum, my sister and her bf all from the UK - but I already knew about them.

I did get a surprise though!! My dad emailed me to say that he wouls pay (well, use his frequent flyer miles) for our honeymoon flights!!! I'm so excited! Now I have to get a passport sorted (one of FH's job so of course it hasn't even started to be done yet!)... My dad is a frequent traveller to Asia so he is helping us to decide where to go and with bookings - I really have no idea on this sort of thing!

That's very exciting Bonni!
I know what you mean about getting the RSVP's come back, I love seeing the envelopes in the letter box!!

Sounds like you're getting busy, Bonni! I love getting RSVP's in the post too - we haven't got that many yet, I want more!! (although I am thankful when there is no post...no post = no bills!)

we've had a great few days - no pictures yet, but I put little updates in my S&T- pictures will be added when we get back to Perth :) it seems very real now, and I've realised I better start doing the little things and seriously look for shoes/jewellery for me and the girls!

I sent my invites before Christmas, but so far not one reply in the mail (people are booking flights and accom though) :cry: . FH got his suit on Saturday, I went with him but he picked it all totally himself, it looks awesome and I nearly teared up in the shop. Seeing him in the suit just made it real for me, I cant wait till the big day now. I also got my lingerie the same day, I'm happy with it, I hope it gives me nice curves under the dress!! :)

You girls seem all so organised! I'm only working on my invites now.... however, being our wedding is so tiny, we've already checked that everyone can come! So it's kind of only a formality.

Still, I want to change my signature so that whenever I post something, I'm not reminded on how close things are and how much I have to do!

I agree! I've just started getting replies back in the post! I did one of those novelty 'bell' RSVPs, so I like looking at which option people selected.

My beautiful bridesmaid just posted out the Hen's night and Kitchen Tea invitations.
We are actually doing a huck's night and doing a scavenger hunt, laser tag, dinner, then drinks out at the club.

What is everyone doing for their hen's night?
