Got an email from our cake maker today saying that our cake would be good to go on Thursday 5th.. this week.

I rang her and told her that our wedding was actually 5 May next Year-as it says on our invoice order- she then asked me why we were postponing ...
It was always on 5 May 2012!!! :roll:

I am just under a year now and its so exciting thats its all getting closer. I have booked my venue, photographer and photobooth. I have also found and ordered my dress, which worked out well because we found out we are expecting and bubs will be born 6 months before the wedding, so I would have been cutting it close. We have met with a celebrant but we will be meeting with more. I would also be interested to know when everyone plans to book hair, makeup, cake and flowers, as I have no idea. I have looked into the fake flowers and really like the idea of them, so I think I may head down this path with flowers.

Do you have an idea of what dress you would like??

Welcome Mummabride! I just had a look at your reception venue and WOW it is stunning!! :heart: I love the timber and gardens, beautiful for a May wedding :)
I only started dress shopping last month, and will be going again in a few weeks time. It's so much fun :)
So far I've booked
Ceremony and Reception Venue
Photographer
Videographer
Cake - booked last Nov
Flowers - booked in April
Ceremony and Reception Music
Celebrant

I've got a hair trial this weekend so will see how that goes. Can't find anyone decent for makeup yet but not too fussed for now.

How is everyone's planning going? :D

Emmlee- Congrats on your pregnancy! Is it your first?? I have 2 girls, my baby is actually one today!!
As for dress, not really sure what style. I love a kind of fishtail style but not sure if it will suit my body. If not then probably a really full skirt and dropped waist. At the moment i absolutely love matina liana 332 and 340. I only want to spend about $2000 on my gown and have heard that these gowns are more : (. I was hoping of trying a gown on in melb then ordering a genuine one of hob or bridalnet- unfortunately neither do matrina gowns.

Bubs- thanks, we just love our venue! It was df's first and only venue he looked at and loved it!! I love the warmth the timber creates and all the open fireplaces! Perfect for a cold day!


As for planning, i feel like their is still sooooooo much time for it so haven't really done much lately! When we first got engaged in December i rushed out and booked a heap of things and am now just waiting for the right time to book the rest. I'm thinking maybe around the 7 month mark i will do flowers, cake, hair, makeup?? What does everyone else think??? Also when do you all plan on booking your honeymoon??

mummabride - Yes this is our first. I will be 12 weeks next wed and going for our first ultrasound, so very much looking forward to that.

Happy 1st Birthday to ur little one :)

You sound like exactly what I did, went out and booked all the major things a month or so after we got married and havnt really done much planning over the last couple of months, I was going to start planning a bit more about the 8 Month mark, but only because I will have alot of time on my hands as my boss has decided to retire (he is only 47, lucky guy) and I am not too certain that I will get a full time job being 6 months pregnant.

Bubs you have got alot organised, hair trial sounds exciting.
