so that leaves the parish with no priest? Surely there'd be another priest coming in? Ring the diocese and find out what you can do.


Its happened before, they just stick a note on the doors saying "Church closed, sorry, go to Ferntree Gully, they still have a priest"

Were the "eh, it dosent matter" area as far as abolutely everything is concearned, because we have such a teeny tiny population.

Can I just brag about how organised I am!

I've done everything except: boys suits, invitations, flower girl and (what do they call the little boy?!) outfits.

My dress I ordered just arrived in the shop after only about 4 months! So I have scheduled a try-on in a few weeks. Bridesmaids dresses have already arrived and have been tried on. I've even already bought all of our shoes and jewellery!

What can I say? We planned this REALLY far in advance!

Hi everyone,
Now that we've set the date I thought I'd join in the discussion! We are getting married on 7 Jan 2012 in Tasmania - same date as Cabaret and Eilonwy! We got engaged in Sept 2010 but I've had so much trouble making decisions about the wedding that we only started booking things in the last two weeks! Now that we have started we've got a lot done :D

Ceremony: Avi-Fauna and Flora Garden
Reception: The Beach
Celebrant: Lynn Hemmings
Photographer: Dream and Just Believe Photography
Flowers: F.I.G

I also bought my dress yesterday! So excited to have a plan :D

Hello fellow January 2012 brides!!

We're 'doing it' on Australia Day (26th) on Cocos Keeling Islands, where we met exactly 4 years ago. :heart: And 'redoing' it (for the benefit of those who can't make it to Cocos) back home on 9 March - yay, I get to wear my fabulous frock TWICE!

This wedding(s) a real DIY saga! Having SO much fun doing my own stuff for it, and saving heaps of money. We are both very unconventional, so none of this 500-strong big fat greek wedding stuff! LOL! I bought my dress back in November last year (bargain price, the EXACT one I'd been looking for, and NO RESIZING necessary - I just have to make sure I don't put on weight!), the other half has his outfit already (being ex-air force, I want him to wear his 'mess uniform' & he's happy to oblige!) Been doing a LOT of online purchases (I reckon I'm close to being a VIP member on efavormart!) - don't bother with Australian retail, it's such a rip off. The minute you say the word "wedding", the price goes up 500%!

Because the 'main wedding' is on Cocos, and probably only a few friends will be financial enough to attend, it's going to be simple as. We've got the celebrant (local bloke), and local photographer (she's AWESOME by the way...Hugs to you, Karen Willshaw!!), plus the flights/accommodation, that is the biggest expense. Celebrant's missus is also making my bouquet of local frangipanis. And I'm just waiting to get my 'high heel thongs' from Victoria's Secret...I'm gonna bling them up, cos the ones on sale already blinged were not what I wanted (and I thought rather overpriced!) The 'second wedding' is where the reception expenses are...but because we're having a cocktail party rather than sit-down formal affair, we'll save bucketloads! A beach wedding needs to be 'informal'!

Cheers
Dana
