FH and I finally agreed that we should get a photobooth and all the people I have sent enquiries to are booked out :(

Amber, you've sent invites? Maybe I should get my butt into gear! I was planning on sending mine about mid January, but I've got to make the bloody things yet! I have started the pocket folds, but I need to go into work and print all the inserts etc. Maybe I'll do that over the break.

could you set up your own? I know it's not the same, but having a backdrop and props seems to be a fun alternative option?

I have sent them, mini - only because every single person needs accommodation and I thought it might be too late to wait til after Christmas/new year...

Mrs JJ - aww... that sucks. Good luck with the last few companies. Our photographer does an "expression session", like what Amber suggested. He sets up a background and props with a camera hooked up to lap top. He also takes some pics if he is around during the reception and not busy. Does your photographer offer anything like that?

Nixella- Yay for your S&T. I'll pop over now and check it out.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I think I will defs just wait till we do invites and decide then. They are only guys anyway so I'm sure they don't care about STDs, lol. I asked my first bridesmaid today. My bestie from uni. She was so excited. :D

Hi Everyone. Joining just before it closes! I've been engaged for just over a month and planning to get married 3/9/11- YIKES! So much to get started on. Think we've decided on a venue (Pumphouse in Fitzroy) and got the church and that's it. OMG so much to do and FH lives in Singapore!

You will be fine Rochelle. I have less than 7 months to go and only have venue, celebrant and photographer. Plus we are going away for a month so will have less than 6 months to do the rest. Aww you poor thing about FH living in Singapore. I hope you have some good family and friends around to help out. Make use of this forum as well, I have learnt so much.

Good luck. Can't wait to hear more about your plans.

Wow I never even thought of that, last Christmas with my maiden name. I was thinking the other day after I got a letter from my daughters school labelled to Mr A. B. and Ms A.M. how awesome it will be to be simple like Mr and Mrs B. Can't believe it is going to be so soon.

Two of my friends from uni have gotten engaged in the last week. One in front of the Taj Mahal (?sp.) and the other in Hong Kong. This year is going to be crazy with final exams and three weddings being planned. I'm soo excited for them.

I can't wait to change my name :)

8 weeks to go!!! I am still waiting on one last RSVP.... My godmother is going through a divorce so just seeing what she wants to do.

Christmas and weddings can cause so much drama... I am so over hearing my aunts whinge :roll:

Still no luck with the photo booth availability.

Had my first weird dream about the wedding last night......

I hadn't arranged any transport for myself to the ceremony so I agreed for someone from the venue to push me in an office chair!!! Lol. It was decorated with a few streamers and I posed on it for photos with a large bordered mirror on my lap. I waved at passers' by on the bumpy ride to the ceremony.

It seemed normal until I woke up. Hehehehe :D

Glad everyones plans seem to be going well - aside from the photobooth situation. Other than browse etsy for accessories that I don't really need I haven't done anything for ages.

It's only a few days until we will be getting married THIS YEAR!!!

Mrs JJ - it's a pity your not down my way. My photographer has been advertising her new photobooth all over facebook and emails to everyone. But I think Geelong to Sydney is a bit far to lend...!

egl81 - Love the dream!

My plans are still in limbo. Our venue is up for sale and I've emailed them asking wtf and what's going to happen for us. If we can't have it there, we're going to get married in May at the registry in Sydney (for FH's family) and then have a handfasting back here in Geelong on our originally planned wedding day. Sheep, better get onto my dressmaker. I asked her to hold off on the dress til April as I was hoping to have lost weight. I stuffed my knee up at work recently so no working knee, no gym sessions, no weight loss! Ahh well.

I've also found a new potential for MOH dress. My MOH mentioned she's "eating healthy" now (as opposed to not as all) so she's put on healthy weight and the dress I've already bought is a bit snug. I'm just happy she's healthy again, and am looking into another dress for her. If she goes through the phase again, then she does. But I refuse to put pressure on her to fit into it. So! We're going with 'options' instead LOL
