Hello!

Is there anyone else out there yet??

Little intro about us, I'm Sara, 25, FH is Justin, 24. We have 3 gorgeous children, Amelia - 5, Oliver - 2.5 and Charlotte - 1. We live in the northern suburbs of Adelaide. I'm currently studying nursing full time at uni and FH works for a neighbouring council. We have known each other for 10 years and dated a few times in that period. We have been together for 4 years now (wow! Doesn't seem that long! And he is a step father to my 5yo, but he is just like a daddy to her as her biological father isn't involved at all), engaged for 2.5 and figured it was time we got serious about planning our wedding.

We are planning for a December 3rd wedding. We are currently making a list of venues to visit, so will confirm the date once we pick one. I'm pretty sure we'll get the date we want though living in Adelaide, we went and looked at one yesterday, but it just wasn't 'us' and I was told we were organised when I called them to ask if we can have a look, lol.

Hope to see some more brides in here soon! :heart:

Hey Sara, I thought I was the only Dec 2011 bride so it's nice to know there's at least one more of us on the forum!

FH (Daniel) and I (Belinda) are both 23, and will be 25 at the wedding on Dec 17th. We've tentatively booked our reception venue in the Yarra Valley and are going back so FH can see it next weekend (he wasn't able to make it the first time, I took both our mums who both loved it). We're also meeting with a photographer next weekend as well so fingers crossed we sort out the venue and photographer! We live in NSW for FH's work, but are originally from Melbourne so are getting married there. It's making the planning a little bit harder as we can only finalise a lot of things when we travel down to Melbourne.

I better get ready for work since I'm meant to leave in 5 minutes, but I look forward to hearing more about your plans!!

~ Belinda

Good luck for the weekend. We are still looking for venues for both, ceremony and reception. The customer service of some places here is horrible!

Argh I hate bad customer service! We've been lucky so far, the venue we've tentatively booked has a lovely wedding coordinator that I've been dealing with. Though some of the other places we checked out left something to be desired. I can't wait until Saturday to book the venue officially!

Have you got any ideas on what sort of venue you want? Winery, function centre, hotel, restaurant, golf club, etc!?

Welcome Jessica, nice to have another Dec bride!! My fiance is in the army so if you have any questions about defence life you're more than welcome to ask.

Look forward to hearing about your wedding plans.

Hi guys!
I'm Kelly (22) engaged to Brendan (25) and mum to Bella who is almost 6.
We are getting married on December 3, 2011. So far the ceremony and reception have been booked and we are close to making a decision with the photography.
Brendan is already living in Brisbane, and Bella and I are joining him in January however we are getting married in Byron Bay, as it's central to both sides of the family and absolutely stunning!
Belinda and Jessica - my FH is also with the Defence Force (Army)

Welcome Kelly and Alwyn!

Nice to see another defence spouse here Kelly! Have you chosen your photographer now? We were posted to Brissy previously, good luck with your move!

Hopefully now that it's 2011 we'll start having more Dec 11 brides in here to chat!!

So just wondering the planning is going for December brides? So far all I've booked is the reception venue - have chosen the ceremony venue but it's yet to be booked.

Hi Ladies,

Another December bride here :D Im Jess (28) and my FH is Matt (25) from Adelaide. We have been together for about 8 months and only engaged for a few weeks but don't want to wait to get married, so our wedding is 3rd December 2011! (Seems to be a popular date!)

We have booked our venue, Sunnybrae for both the ceremony and reception. Have ordered my dress, photographer is booked and hair/make up is booked. Have to be organised when Ive only got 8 or so months to plan the whole wedding!!! :P

How is everyone else coming along??

Jess :D

Well I was hoping to have everything organised by now but it's going a lot more slowly than planned! So far I've only booked the reception venue and ceremony venue. And hair and makeup artist.

I'm interviewing photographers and hope to have one organised by the end of the month. Still thinking about the dress, haven't ordered it yet but will probably have it made, will call up the designer tomorrow. I have a couple of names to chase up for the celebrant so hope to start that process next week. Looking at some decorations on the weekend. Have looked at one car, still undecided on that though. Have decided on the type of bonbonniere but not organised it yet, same with cake.
