Well I've done my OOS and am hoping to do my placecards this week. We've decided to book a DJ instead of using the ipod. We've had a few dramas in the lead up to the wedding and really just want things to run smoothly on the day. All I need now is my something borrowed and also my jewellery. So 4 weeks to go and the count down is on! Scary stuff! I feel like I've forgetten so much.

Well I haven't done much I am trying to fgure out how I write on the lolly bags or what I do either leave them blank or be a bit creative. Got the placecards in the mail last week so going to work out how to write/type on them. We have about 30 RSVPS back so far so not half way but due date isn't til late jul I think 20th or something so another week I think.

Hopefully FH & I will start learning our dance this week :D

I think it's all been head down, bum up with the August girls! I'm the end of August and starting to get a little nervous now...not to mention over it. Still a few things to get sorted, but i've been doing a little too much procrastinating and self sabotage. The last few weeks have been pretty flat out and i've just felt too tired to do anything though. I'm just looking forward to being able to enjoy everything, not to mention the holiday! I'm glad i've had a short engagement because I don't think I could've handled much more, but at the same time there are a few things I would've liked to have more time for to get right. I've had a few...not disasters, but disappointment where I feel like i've just had to settle for things given the time frame. I also wish I could go back and change my BM to my sister. As much as we're not really 'sisterly' and never really got along that well, in hindsight, it probably would've been a nice gesture (even though I did offer to make a spot for her) and she couldn't have been any less help than my BM has been. :roll: Sorry for the rant!

Hi everyone,

Got married yesterday and I was so happy with EVERYTHING. Our friends and family did an absolutely amazing job setting up the reception venue and the ceremony in the park.

Good luck if your wedding is soon, and remember to enjoy every minute. It all went by so quickly!!

Hi and welcome Miss_Bek, such a bummer you only just found this site!! its been soo much help to me, and everyone on here is so lovely. We are getting married on the 29th too!! its coming up so quickly!!! Not sure what you have left to do, just let us know and we can point you in the right direction as there is soooo much info on here it took me nearly a month to figure everything out. There is a link to a seating planner I can dig up for you if you need one of those? Congrats and good luck for a couple and a bit weeks time :D :D

How are your plans going?

Hi, yeah im pretty much the same as you. I cant do the bon bons til we get to Melbourne the week before the wedding, most of my place cards are finished just got a couple to make with some last minute guest changes. Have been burning some CD's tonight. Ive been procrastinating finishing the seating chart. This is the one I downloaded, because its such a big excel file, Ive had to delete a few pages out to make it a bit smaller so it doesnt crash on me, or it could just be me being impatient lol http://www.weddingnsw.com/tips/organiser.htm

Hi again,

I have put some photos up in the Hall of Fame if anyone is still hanging around to have a look at them!!

Yes, our wedding was beautiful. Absolutely not a thing went wrong, it was exactly how we planned it. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute but can't believe how quickly the day flew by! Photos are great but really wish I had got the photographer to stay for the reception. Live and learn, pass the information on I suppose!

How was your wedding day? Did you have a ball? Where are your pics?
