^^ we certainly did :lol: :lol:

Well, there hasn't been much wedding related stuff going on for me lately, apart from getting our wedders last week. I'll be back in Brisbane in about 3 weeks from now :bdance: so hopefully, we'll get more stuff organised then. The thing that really has to be done is booking our photographer. I'm also hoping to arrange for a hair and make up trial then :D

I just officially booked the church for our wedding date which is the 28th April 2012.

So right now I have booked....

The Church
The Reception
The Cars

I have an appointment in 2 weeks time with a possible Photograper/videographer and we will keep looking from there.

I am going to start officially looking (trying on) dresses as of April, this gives me exactly 12 months.

I don't really know what else to start booking, still plenty of time.

I am a bridesmaid in a wedding on the first weekend of May so at the moment i feel like i'm flat out preparing Kitchen tea, hens etc for that wedding!

I booked our florist YAY and booking the photographer this week. I have to physically go in to the bank to pay him as its an over sea's transfer. I have to give him 50% up front which is a lot since we just came back from Bali :x
BUT I want to secure him so its gotta be done :D

:tick: That's great! and Just think if you pay half, you only have half left to pay!

That's pretty organized! I would also maybe start looking for hair/makeup and whoever's making your cake. While bakers can make two or three cakes for the same day, they still book up pretty quickly!!


The next month or so I plan to pay off our photographer, so that'll be done until the last amount due a month before the wedding.
I will pay off at least half of my dress so that I know I can order it whenever I want after that. I also need to pick up my veil and cancel that other dress :oops:
I'd like to start paying off the church but the guy gave the impression he prefers lump sums so I may have to wait on that one

I have to admit as far as paying things off goes I am a lump sum girl myself! That way I have less receipts to keep track of, and less to lose :oops:

Well this is my first post!

We are getting married next year on the 11th February.

I have booked our Chapel, Reception, Photographer and also ordered my dress!!! Still a lot to do but at least I can relax a little knowing the major things are booked.

I look forward to reading all about your wedding plans :D

I'd love to pay it all in one go but I'm terrible with money. I can't have it sitting around or I'll spend it on things I think we "need" so it's better if I pay something with it as soon as I get it.

Its nice to pay off in a lump sum as you know its all done, but I quite enjoy paying stuff off
The dress is usually one of the most priciest parts, I like going in and putting money on it and having a nosey in the shop :oops:

Sounds like everyone's getting very organised here! :D

Welcome Mel :heart: Can't wait to hear all your plans!

Right now we're arranging for our pre-wedding shoot which will be done in May. We're getting a friend's friend to do it for us so it's rather flexible on how and when we wanna do it. We're thinking of having a day time shoot and another night time shoot so we can get some night views of the city :D

hey

Im so excited for my wedding knowing it is net year :roll: lol.

But we have decided where we are having ceremony/ reception
Boat harbour Beach, (lovely) and reception followed wharf hotel Wynyard...
I'm SO EXCITED!
Now i have pretty much near all the major things sorted just need the money to finalise it all.

reception hire includes they set up tables/cutlery, table clothes plates etc - $250 till 1am
Ceremony decor $995 thats for american chairs x13 bamboo setting aisle runner etc. but im thinking to cut the price down, to take the chars away, just have people stand around the aisle runner and Us... cause knowing i will get so many chairs and not everyone will sit on them
Dj hire- $500 thats for setup then 6pm till 12:30
vintage cars _ $600 for 2 ( not sure if we will go ahead)
Celebrany-$500
My dress $300
flowers 350 + delivery (frangipanis artificial) Bridal teardrop, 4 posies, 4 button holes
