We have booked and put a deposit on our venue and our photographer :) I am too scared to set in concrete any other plans yet because I keep finding so many lovely ideas!!

I've laid the deposit for our reception/ceremony venue (same place) and have spoken to the photographer we'll be going with.

I've bought my dress, MOH dress, my shoes and accessories. I'm down to two choices for a bouquet, and don't know where to go next!!

Stefania - I guess I've been engaged for quite a while now (February last year) that after seeing so many ideas I've made my mind up now :) Which is very helpful :) But I'm still undecided about the many little things!

Nwyfre - Wow you sound so organised!

We have booked our ceremony venue (St Michael the Archangel chapel - my grandparents got married in a church named St Michael in Italy which makes it so much more special now that they both won't be there :( ), our reception venue, we booked our photographer ages ago but that was easy as it's FH's Uncle, same with the DJ - FH's cousin, ummm we booked the videographer who is a very nice guy who helped out a friend of mine for free when her videographer went AWOL and all she got were some soundless tapes, the hair, the make up, and the limos. We did it earlier as we only finished building our house in February and I knew we would be very busy with that and boy we were! I haven't done anything for a few months!

At the moment I'm trying to get the bridesmaids jewellery made up whenever I get a chance (I work 12 hour days fly-in fly-out on an 11 day on site, 3 day off site roster so I don't have much time spare!). Oh and how could I forget - I've decided on my dress too! Just going to wait to lose the weight that I put on in the first half of this year before I order it as I want to make sure I get the right size.

Hi fellow October 2011 brides,

We are getting married Oct 8 on the beach and I ordered my Elizabeth De Varga dress today!!!!! I am sooo excited! I'm having serious withdrawls after spending about 20mins with it on this morning :)

Nwyfre and Future Mrs Smith you are both so organised! I've organised venue and thought I had settled what ideas I wanted to go with for flowers, invites etc but my dress is different to what I thought I would go with so may have to rethink some ideas...

So excited!

Thanks. I've been engaged for a while so slowly booking everything.

We got in touch with our vendors on Friday to let them know of the change of address now we're in our house, and our reception venue called to discuss a few this and also said that they double booked our date as we booked so far out they didn't have a filing system for 2011 at that point, and it never got put back in. As we booked in first, we are so lucky we get to keep it but I feel sorry for the girl who also has it booked as it would be terrible news. I'd be willing to shift ours if she really had her date set on it but as we've done so much, and already made up the save the dates too, it's a bit too late for us to change it.

What a horrible situation - just as well you got in contact with them now so they picked it up. Imagine if you didn't contact them until a few months before and then they realised they were double booked and the other couple had to find somewhere else with only a few months notice!

I know! I guess it's good that they have more than a year! And the manager said he was free both weekends around it too.

I wish our previous place would be rebooked.

FH and I moved back to Geelong (Vic) from Sydney in January. My mother, all excited that we're having the wedding down here, immediately booked us into Truffleduck at Balmoral. Beautiful place, just not us. She even laid down a $1000 deposit! She wants me in the nice white dress, 4 piece orchestra and a sit down dinner. Um...no!

So after a while of thinking "I just can't have it there" I cancelled and went with Harvester Moon.

HOWEVER! We can get our deposit back til they rebook it. I cancelled the date about three months ago, and they've probably said no to it within the last three months because one of the main girls went overseas. Argh!

Now my mother is on my back about getting the deposit back but there's nothing I can do.

I hope it gets booked soon for you! If your Mum is annoying you about that, maybe give her the deposit? And then you can wait for someone to take it without getting nagged. I'm sure it will be booked. October is peak wedding season so someone will end up booking your date.

Oh that would be horrible, I would be really upset especially if I had already told many people my date! Hopefully she won't mind too much :) lucky you got in first!!

Hello ladies! Well my postponed wedding is now 22 Oct 2011 (instead of 2 Oct 2010 :( ) due to getting preggers with twins, but now I'll have 2 extra special guests to join in my day

We had almost everything organised and just had to pay everyone off, so I feel a little better knowing I don't have the stress of organising with 3 little ones. You can check out my plans in my S&T
