I'm an August 2011 Bride to be also!
We're getting married on the 20th of August at Poet's Lane in the Dandenongs (Victoria)
Are any of you concerned about the weather for August next year? I hope it's not too cold!
Most of you sound so organised. Studying and getting married! Wow! I can't imagine doing that! My fiance and I had been dating for almost 7 years before we got engaged, and I think it was simply because we both wanted to be settled in our jobs before we took the next step...That and we weren't old enough til now
I've organised my venue, dress, photographer, celebrant. I'm DIYing my invites and programs. So I've got sample papers and stuff - but still deciding on how to do them.
We're getting the bridesmaid dresses made, so we just need to choose a fabric. We've got an idea of the design, but the girls are wanting to put off getting them made for a little bit longer (one of them wants to loose some weight)
The next big thing is flowers, cake and wedding bads.
Congratulations to everyone though - on getting engaged!
It's a very exciting time!!!
Hey! Congrats, welcome etc
You sound very organised too... I have chosen things like invites already and keep seeing new ideas that I wish I had known about so it's probably good that you haven't figured it all out. I'm DIYing too, it's SO much fun!
I'm not concerned about the cold at all, but thats cos I'm getting married just south of the gold coast (HOT! all year) and anything above 25 degrees and I just about die (I'm originally from the UK lol), but I'm sure in Vic, it's much more of a concern!
Hi Akanksha august 20 seems to be a poplur date!!
I am a little concerned it may be a bit cold (mainly for guests turning up in trackies or something lol) but my fingers are crossed for a nice day i ended up going with August as our venue had a winter deal so i decided to go with it and save the $3k as i was originally planning 3/9 (our anniversary) so im hoping as its 3 days before spring it will be nice!!
Woot, Aug 20 brides are awesome
Yea, we ended up changing a Sep date to Aug for the bonuses our reception venue gave us (free canapes and pre dinner drinks area), is a winter special and we were considering the 1st weekend of June but that's exams for me usually plus we needed the few extra months to save
Bahaha, hope my guests don't turn up in trackies either!! I find Aussies are SO casual about weddings, in the UK it's still a hat and gloves kind of affair!
I'm also an August 2011 bride - we are getting married in Brisbane on 27th.
I'm hoping that it won't be too cold, but I am looking into shawls for the BM's (and for myself for the reception).
I feel so un-organised compared to the rest of you! We have the venue booked and the catering organised, but that's about it. I know which flowers I am going to get but I am just waiting on my dress (which I haven't found yet). BM's have seen a few styles of dresses that they liked, which is good as one is going overseas in March 2011 so we have to have their dresses organised by then.
Also, got some ideas for the colour scheme, which is giving us a starting point for thinking about all the other aspects (decorations etc).
Dress shopping for myself tomorrow so maybe I'll find 'the one' this time!
Where are you getting married in Brisbane? I live on the Gold Coast, but when we first moved to Aus we lived in Bris.
I dont think it'd be too cold that time of year but shawls would probably be a good idea, especially if you're on the river.
Good luck on the dress hunting!
