Getting married on 9th June 2013 at The Tea Room Gunners Barracks. Mr snoopkat and I have been engaged since last June and the first thing I did a couple of months into our engagement was book our ceremony and reception venue, photographer and videographer, hair (I'm using my own hairdresser, I don't trust anyone else) and MUA (using my own beauty therapist, she did my makeup for our engagement party and her work was awesome!). Just got my florist sorted over the weekend :bdance:

Looking forward to hearing from other June brides! :D

Snoopkat, I love Gunners Barracks! One of my favourite places to shoot weddings :)

Another June 2013 bride here! We're getting married in Israel and I have done absolutely nothing to plan properly yet - we're planning to lock everything in over the next couple of weeks! I am going to do some dress shopping next week and we're doing skype chats with planners this week to lock things down.

And yet another June 2013 bride here. Getting married on the 8th of June. Have booked the church, reception, wedding dress, photographer and videographer, and NEARLY decided on florist and bridesmaids. WOW...now that I write all that down I realize how much I actually have done! So excited about it all. I still need a makeup artist though, so if anyone has any suggestions of someone in Melbourne, that would be much appreciated!

My wedding will be on the 18th June :) we have booked in at the Sea Temple Country Club in Port Douglas for the reception, our ceremony is at a chapel called St Mary's by the sea.
Where is everyone up to with organising? I have only booked the venue, photographer and ordered my dress.. I am thinking I should start organising myself a little faster!?

Haven't been back here in awhile :) I've got all the major stuff organised (ceremony, reception, photographer, videographer, honeymoon, hairdresser, dress). Going for my makeup trial in 2 weeks and I can lock that in. Mr snoopkat is in charge of music and he still hasn't booked a DJ :roll: When we first got engaged, 2013 seems like aaaaages away. Now it's only 7 months away. Where did the time go??

Hello everyone! We are getting married on 8 June 2013 in Melbourne.

We have most things planned, but we have a few of the minor details still to nut out.

Looking forward to hearing about everyone's plans :)

rhett's girl - we had originally booked 8th June as our wedding date but changed it to 9th to avoid the Saturday surcharge. It's exciting to finally be able to say that our wedding is THIS year! :D

I have a confession - I still don't have a dress 8O
I'm a teacher so was waiting until school holidays to do wedding planning - I'm a bit nervous leaving it this late!!
Still need a florist in Melbourne that is not too pricey - does anyone know someone well priced?

Dani, I've got 151 days to go, whoop whoop!

PM MonsoonPrincess, her cousin's a florist. Not sure how much she charges though but I think she's won a couple of awards.

Have you started looking for a dress yet or you just can't find one you like? I am sure you will find one :)
What has everyone got left to do?

I picked up my dress around a week ago! I preferred to have it ready to go rather than stressing about it not being ready. Although now I am stressing about how on earth I am going to get it on the plane (it is big and puffy, which is the exact opposite of what I thought I would end up with!)

Our to do is as follows:

1. book the rest of our accommodation for the wedding;
2. hair/makeup trial;
3. organise ceremony/reception decorations (we are hiring someone to do this);
4. decide on the menu;
5. decide on BM dress (BM is pregnant so this will happen after she has the baby in 3 weeks or so);
6. finalise invites and send them out;
7. buy FH and BM shirts and ties;
8. organise a cattery for our cat;
9. beauty stuff (nails, waxing etc.);
10. finalise wedding ceremony wording and vows;
11. finalise our play list for the reception.

We have booked Debbie O'Neill - http://www.debbieoneill.com.au/ We found her to be pretty reasonable.

I think you should have enough time for June to order in a dress.

That's all I can think of for now :)

I fly back to Singapore in a month for my first dress fitting, can't wait!

There's still heaps to do including:

- scheduling dancing lessons
- sort out wedding cake
- design our invitations (we get our first draft Fri woohoo!)
- plan ceremony and reception program
- Book MC
- music selection for ceremony/reception
- BM dresses (this bit is stressing me out to the max, but hopefully will be able to find something in S'pore for my 3 very different BMs)
- Order Mr snoopkat's wedding ring
- finalise flowers
- dress fitting
- accommodation for out of towners
- book photo booth
- find some other pre reception dinner that doesn't cost too much

That's just tasks that I have to do by March. According to my wedding planner app, I have 51 tasks left to do out of 78 8O

Wow what app are you using? Im scared to see what mine says!

I need to get the invites made and sent out. Does anyone know what the RSVP time should be? If we have already sent out Save The Dates, people should know if they are coming or not hey?
bridesmaids are having a fitting tomorrow so they will be ordered.
Suits for the boys
organise a cake
Wedding bands
Shoes
Jewellery
book a DJ
decide on what menu we would like
wedding favors
and I am sure I have missed a heap!

I just had a wedding reminder sent to my email, 5 months to go today!!

We are sending out our invites in the next month with a RSVP by 8 April. I'm not sure what the norm is, but I would like to get the RSVPs back asap. Also, there are a few people we would be able to invite if family members can't make it (it's out of town, so some of our family members have already said they may not be able to make it).
