Beka- Ive got people(mainly my mother and FSIL) telling me not to worry about booking anything... Mums been married once and she didnt have to plan or pay and FSIL is nowhere near close to getting married! I wish they would just shut up and help look for bargains! haha!
I think i will try book my venue next month, i just worry i will change my mind about something!!
I dont think alot of people understand how much things cost, its the small things that builds the budget.... little fluffy things as brides we fall in love with....
I had a talk to my other half last night and i think hes finally getting to understand how i am feeling, since we are having a small budget $10,000 and half of that is all ready gone with church and reception - i think i got both at an amazing rate, church, minster, silk flower arrangements, and organist for under $700 and the reception for a sit down 3 course meal for 80 and $1,500 on bar all for under $5000, so the rest of our budget can be spent on everything else.
I am contenplating on splurging on the dress... my splurg is maybe going as high as $1500 for the dress
I am doing alot myself as well -- like the BM are all wearing birdcage veils, my veil I am hand beading, the invitations i will be doing, basically all the stationary i will be doing and also last night i found this amazing instructional video on how to create a rhinestone bouquet and fell in love with it.
I dont want to be scrambling to get things done the night before, my hope is everthing i am doing will be done a month before the wedding...
I finally came up with the victorian romantic gothic theme so i think it will work
