skittles, love the BM dress! I'm having red dresses for my BM's, that shade of red is actually really nice... but finding the right dress for both of them is a bit of a challenge because they are so opposite body wise. I think we are going to end up with them in different styles.

Deakin chapel for the ceremony (in front of not in) and to be followed by the deakin lakehouse for the reception :)

It's very reasonably priced and very scenic to boot :)

Yes it's in Warun Ponds.

We aren't really beachy people. So we went lakeside instead :)

Glad we decided early the venue already had THREE bookings for November 2013.

Just booked in for the 23.11.13!
We were supposed to have a 2014 wedding BUT we met with our photographer and she had one date free for November and our venue just happened to have it as the only date free as well...
So I guess it was fate :)

I am sooooo excited and everything is happening so quickly... In the last 2 days I have booked the photographer, venue, ceremony location and hired a decorater....omg 8O

Thanks guys!
I am really excited and thrilled that I've found wedding central. FH is only lukewarm on he planning, but I live just above the sunshine coast which is a very popular wedding destination, so everything is booking out so quickly. I had to contact six photo booth companies before I found one with availability! I don't care if people think I'm crazy for planning so early. I would be devastated if I could not have what I want because I was too lazy to make a phone call,
