Hope you have a great dinner Amberino! I still think that's such a great idea. Now I'm really going to have to get stuck into the planning :D

Very exciting! When are you having it? It seems like so long ago that we had our engagement party!
We booked our photographer last week, it's very slowly starting to come together now!

Hehe well we were planning on having the engagement party ages ago, in the summer, a bbq at our house. But then babies were born, people weren't free, so we put it off to now, then we realised its too cold and the chance of rain is very high in June, so our backyard wouldn't cut it and our house is too too small for 40 people to smush into hehehe. So we've been looking for (affordable) options :)

But its $145 for hire from midday to midnight, which is what we wanted :)

$145?! Bargain! And not having to stress about your own house being too small or people being cold/wet is fantastic :)

I know how you feel bron! I get nervous because there's nothing to see- it's just their recreation of your ideas and then lots of wishing and hoping that it turns out beautifully :)

I'm still trying to decide whether I'm going to buy something or get it made so thought I'd make an appointment and hopefully she can help me decide!! It's just going to be strange not having anything to try on, just hoping that they make me look great!!

Had an appointment with a dressmaker today, she's fantastic. Seriously thinking about just booking her without seeing anyone else, I'm that happy with her

No just the first trip... planning the next one now. Because we have to travel 5 hours to the bridal shops in Perth it takes a bit of co-ordination and planning.... bummer really coz I could just pop in if I lived in Perth and made the decision by now.

We've saved a bit of money lately so only need to save a bit more and we will have payed off all the 'big ticket' items... then I can concentrate more on the little more finer details that are more fun... and start buying stuff!!!

I am still trying to work out the invites... I brought a sample from cardsandpockets but the pocket fold was too big. I really want to try and keep the invite a standard letter size to cut down on postage so I'll have to figure out something else... maybe email them and ask for help I think??

Now its under 12 months I'm starting to feel the pressure of organising everything now as I think the next 12 months are going to go pretty quickly..
