Hi girls

I too am getting married in May 2011, we have only just chosen a venue in brissy and decided on 21 May. Where abouts are you girls? anyone else in Brissy?

It all feels a bit more real now that we have chosen the date and venue. Not really sure where to go from here....there is so much to think about!!!

Jess :)

Hi Jess

I'm not in Brissy, a bit further up at Hervey Bay (near Fraser Island).

I haven't yet booked my venue (we have an appointment on Saturday with the functions manager for one of the potentials), but have bought a few little bits and pieces (favour boxes, napkins, earrings etc) and have been looking at ideas for BM dresses - I think I have made a decision there. I have also decided on my wedding dress and will probably be ordering it very soon. At the moment I am working on my Save-The-Date cards, which is exciting!

Have you got any ideas as to what you want to do? Theme, colour/s, etc?

Hi Mini_k27

Sorry its taken me awhile to reply. Wow you are a bit more organised than us. We have only just chosen our venue but i have started thinking about little details already. I am thinking the colour theme will be purple/silver. The venue we have chosen does an all inclusive package that includes pretty much everything except photography and all our personal attire etc, and they do all the organising for us, which will make things so much easier for us.
I know the style of dress i am looking at but am yet to find the one. And as for BM dresses i am having my 2 sisters and they both live in Brissy so i will be going shopping with them when i am back there later in the year, otherwise i have told them to keep their eye out for styles they like. I am thinking of using Singapore orchids and Lillies for flowers. So much more to think about!!

Jess :)

Hi Jessica85,

We have booked our reception venue (Stamford plaza) and booked photographer. My dress was the first thing i found (last year) and put a deposit on. I know where ceremony will be and boquets from but they dont take bookings more that 12 months in advance so waiting for the 1 year mark. Just bought my shoes this week, and some parasols. Im having a dusty pink, ivory, champagne and crystals theme.

Hi ladies! We looked at our first potential venue yesterday, and as we walked out FH said to book it! To be honest there aren't alot of nice options for reception venues in our town that are affordable so this one was the only real one we had in mind anyway.

Originally we were going to do the marquee thing on FPIL's property, but after we thought about it some more, the logistics and work involved with that changed our mind. I think FPIL's weren't very happy when we told them we had ditched the marquee idea, but I think that they are looking at it from a cost perspective and don't really have any concept of how much the marquee option was really going to cost, and that we weren't going to save any money by doing it that way.

Hi Jess

We live in Cairns :) My family live in Brissie but FH's family live in Cairns and his family are bigger, so works out best for us to have it up here..

We are thinking sugarworld gardens or botanical gardens for ceremony and the Cairns Jockey Club (corporate box area) for reception.

Where in Brissie are you looking at getting married

Hi Sharz

Sounds very nice!! We have booked the Palms International at Virginia for both our ceremony and reception...we are going for a fairly low key wedding with only about 50ppl.

Hey Bec

We kinda have a similar situation in that my family lives in Bris and FH's family is in Cairns. We met while FH was living in Bris but i moved up here with him just over 2 years ago. Things would be alot easier if we were getting married up here but unfortunately my mum can't travel as she is in a wheelchair so we are doing it in Bris instead, and FH's family have said that they are happy to travel which is good. Your venue sounds great by the way!! See my previous post above for our venue!!

Where abouts in Brisbane are you from? I grew up on the northside in Pine Rivers. Lived at Chermside before i moved to Cairns.

Hi Jess

I lived in Ferny Grove, Lived at Chermside when I left school, then moved up here, I'm going down in June for some chermside shopping and can't wait :)
You venue sounds great!!! I'm hoping to learn to sew soon, so I can do my own decorations for the jockey club and not cost so much lol.
