Another July bride here..... we are getting married on 4th July 2011 at Port Douglas.
I've noticed another couple of July Port Douglas brides which is nice. We should have a lot to chat about.
Here's my plans so far:
Dress- deposit paid, fitting in April (love to loose a few kgs before then!)
FH Suit- he has two that he already owns to choose from- he insisted on NOT buying another one!!!
Ceremony- to be held at St Mary's by the sea, booked through the lovely ladies at Port Douglas weddings
Shoes- arrived in the mail last week- love them....but also considering some flats for the reception
Reception- light lunch and drinks at Lure Restaurant by the marina
Flowers- I decided to have a wrist corsage instead of a bouquet, to save on costs- and have hands free!
Hair and make up- booked, have ordered a hairpiece from ebay, should be arriving soon- i hope!
Jewelery- wearing a beautiful dainty necklace my FH gave me and I've bought some simple pearl earrings to match.
Rings- purchased, just need to get my wedding band re-sized.
Favors- small organza bags with personalised choc hearts inside.
Centrepieces- not sure.....flowers are quite costly- considering shells to fit with the beach theme
Accommodation- Mercure Treetops
Hire car- booked
Veil- considering if I will or will not have one.....my sister and friend have one each, I will try with the dress and decide.
Invitations- sent, wanted to give guests plenty of time to book and rsvp- most will be traveling a long way from Vic.
Underwear- not organised yet......perhaps something nice for later, but during the day something to flattering under the dress.
Photographer- my brother-in-law will be designated for this job!
So, feeling fairly on top of it all.....just hoping I haven't forgotten anything!!! Has been a lot of emailing interstate to both the wedding organisers in Qld and to my family in Vic (I'm in NSW!). Can not wait to try on my dress again with all the accessories!
How is everyone else going with their planning?
