I'm another July bride.
My wedding date is 3rd July (a Sunday!) 2011. Nice to see that there are some others getting married at that time of year. I'm in Melbourne, so it will be COLD on the day, but FH and I decided that it would be the best time for us, because we are planning a honeymoon overseas (location TBC), and wanted to have lovely weather.
I'm afraid I'm not very organised in comparison to the other girls on here who are still 18 / 12 months out from their wedding date and have everything arranged! We only got engaged mid July! So far, we have booked our ceremony and reception venues and that is it. Planning on looking at some photographers over the next couple of weeks too, but other than that, everything else is still up in the air (although I have a few ideas about my dress and BM dresses
How did you go with photographers? found anything yet? I went and met with about 8 of them with a friend of mine that has studied photography. I judged them on their personality and she judged on the photo quality. I was lucky that my favourite person was also her favourite photographer so it worked out well. FH and I have already done an engagement shoot that comes complimentary with our package and we enjoyed working with him so much. He is so easy going. I haven't seen the photos yet though which I can't wait to do.
Hi girls, I love that we are adding more to the July club, how exciting!
I went to the travel agent today and have decided on the Greek Islands for our honeymoon. Just have to talk FH into it now. I will try my hardest but I think I will talk him around! I am so excited right now!!!
Greek Islands will be beautiful!! I'm thinking about Bali. I've never been outside of Australia before so I think I'll just take a little step out on my first trip
Net I was thinking of you the other day. They have advertised direct flights from Townsville to Bali now for really cheap starting in Dec. Maybe you could check out if you can go Darwin to Townsville to Bali to save money. I don't know if that's possible but thought it may be worth looking into?
Hi Net, I went to NZ for my first time overseas and the trip over was a bit overwhelming so I don't blame you! bali sounds so nice and tropical.
Jaybird your accomodation looks great, have you booked it already?
By the way girls, we can only afford the Greek Islands cause we will be on our way to London anyway and it is practically the same price for flights. We are doing the 2 year UK working holiday straight after our wedding. So excited. I have so much to plan betweeen now and the wedding!!!
Missy, we have officially booked everything as of yesterday and now I am very excited about going!! So jealous of your plans for a working holiday...being a little bit older (I'm 34, but FH is only 30), I have lots of friends who have done the working holiday in the UK and they have all had a wonderful time - I actually can't think of anyone who had a bad time! I only wish that I had been in a position to do it myself! I'm sure you will both have a fabulous working holiday!
Jaybird I will be 30, 5 days before my wedding next year so I know what you mean. We wanted to wait a few more years (FH is 27 so he has that option) but age is not on my side. As long as I apply for my Visa before my birthday I am still able to go. Luckily.
We are looking at July 23 or 30, 2011 for our wedding at the moment. Must say i'm a little nervous given that you guys seem quite organised already and we have done nothing, but then we are planning a very simple (ie cheap) wedding.
Hi Lula, I reckon you will still have heaps to plan for a simple wedding. Once you get stuck into it you realise how much is really involved. Thank God for this website I have learnt so much from other brides.
Sorry my post is so long everyone
