Yay, I get to join this thread
FH & I are planning for June 21st 2014 as it will be our anniversary. Initially we were looking at 2013 but this way it falls on a Saturday (yay for escalated costs haha) so some of my family (I was born in NZ) are more likely to be able to make it even just for the weekend.
Though, before I even met FH my mum and I had been planning to go to NZ in May 2014 as my grandma turns 80 and I'll be turning 24 while I'm there, so we may have to change the date. I had a chat to mum about it all and she said we should be alright. My only concern about it would be that the last 6-8 weeks are generally the busiest with planning, so I'm not 100% that I would be willing to be out of the country, even for a week, that close to the wedding.
Aside from the date, we haven't thought about much. Before we were engaged we had discussed the possibility of just a registry wedding, though at that stage we were also just going to elope and have our 8 closest friends there which was going to be done this year. After talking about it we both agreed that I really do want the big white dress and the whole deal. I have been engaged previously (and used WC), back then all I wanted was a backyard shindig for under $500 since I thought the whole wedding thing was rather materialistic, but after attending the weddings of a couple of ex-WCer's and meeting FH I don't think that at all anymore.
So quick wrap up, looking at June 21st 2014, think we have an idea on colours, no idea on location (will be somewhere in Vic) and zero idea on anything else.
