I'm the first!! (to post anyways!)

I'm getting married on 28th Jan 2012... and we are so excited.

I love organising stuff (I work as an executive assistant so I'm use to it) not loving the money issues thou... we are kinda saving and spending at the same time.

We are hoping/planning on having everything organised and sorted by November to avoid any issues with the Christmas break... is anyone else doing this?

Also I want to send out our invites in maybe Aug with RSVP's by end of Nov... get in before anyone books in holidays (hopefully they wont anyways has Ive sent out save the dates already)

Hey,

Yep we are "hoping" to have everything paid off and sorted by November to then deal with xmas and then not last minute stressing with the wedding aswell. I got Save the dates made, but am unsure when to send them. I was thinking about July Aug and then invites around Nov with early Dec rsvp?! Thoughts?
Im feeling pretty orgainsed i think,
Dress waiting for arrival should be June
Dep paid on Ceremony, Reception, Photographer, photobooth, celebrant
Found car today so will pay that and have found bridesmaid dresses so will order around August.
Just need to find a resonable priced florist.
Need to get Flower girl, page boys & groomsmen sprted.
And invites!!

ok so maybe im not so sorted! :roll:

Hi Ladies!

I am also the 21st January 2012 (even though my display name says 2011!!) 8)

So excited. So far we have only booked photographer and reception venue... so much less organised than some of you! We ave our engagement party next weekend, which should be a blast!

Look forward to sharing this exciting journey with you!!

:D

Hi, our wedding is booked for 7th of January, we're having ours (ceremony + reception) at the Esplanade Hotel in Fremantle. Have also organised a photographer (Lumens Photography), cake (Cakes from Heaven), celebrant and just last week picked my dress - ordered it and expecting it in July. So nervous about the dress, I think that was the scariest decision out of all of them, still not even sure it was the best decision but will have to see how it turns out :) FH has organised a DJ as well who is a family friend. Bridesmaids dresses are the next item on the list.

We are definitely planning on having everything organised well in advance and avoiding problems with the close down of businesses over the christmas/new year period. All of the businesses we have dealt with have also had he same thing in mind for us.

My dress should arrive in April apparently, then I get to start with the alterations *bangs head on table* damn being a short-ass.

Hey everyone!

I feel like I have been part of at least 3 groups already... Our wedding date has changed so much it isn't funny! This is the last change or it ain't happening!! LOL... seriously.. it's been too dramatic!!

So.. we have been organising this wedding for AGES now! We are now booked for Sunday 15th January 2012. We have organised a lot already.

Church: Cardinal Cerretti, Manly
Reception: Starship Sydney
Dress: Greta by Maggie Sottero (already paid for and is now hanging in my closet)
Shoes: Wanted Shoes (already bought and is in my closet)
Invitations: Already designed. Partially started
Bonbonnieres: Capiz shell hear-shaped boxes (already bought, just need to decorate)
Bridesmaid Dresses: After Six
Rings: Wedding rings to be made by the same jeweller who made my engagement ring. (Using the gold from a 24K gold ring from my sick uncle.)
Photographer/Video/Cars: We're interested in this company who does all three. More convenient.
Hair and Makeup: Bella Diva Makeup
Wedding Cake: we're starting this process at the moment. Tried someone out last week. Nice cake but not sure if she's experienced enough. She's never made a wedding cake before.

OMG... have I really done that much already? Still a lot more to do!!

Welcome to the gang, sachick!!

Good to see someone else having their wedding on the same weekend as me! Good work getting everything organised already!! Now you can just relax, pay the instalments and do the minor details.

Do you have a Show & Tell yet? I'm working on mine at the moment. I will be publishing it soon.

Keep posting girls! We have less than 10 months to go already! My little ticker bride is getting closer to the groom. Woooo!

Hey Ladies!

Well not much more going on here,
Ive booked in a trial for the end of April (earlier then i wanted but she was doing 1/2price trials for april only) so i thought i may as well try there is 1 other place im looking at aswell.
I tried to do suits aswell, DF and one of the gm tried on a suit i really like so ill get the others to try it and make sure.
Its more of a charcol colour with a black shirt.
We really need to pull our finger out and start paying this wedding off!!

How are you all going?
