Im new to this forum so hello!!!
I have finally read through all 83 pages and it is great to get a list of so many different names for flowers, cake, celebrant, make up and hair and especially the photography.
Little bit about my FH and I - We have been together 7 years, in Nov we emigrated over to Oz from the UK and have not regretted it at all. We have been engaged 1 year today and have finally secured our date (1st November 2013) at Peppers Guest House. The reason we chose Peppers GH was because the grounds are beautiful, the on site accommodation was a big hit with us purely because most of our wedding party will be coming from the UK so it made everyones life easier having the accommodation on site. The family of Kangaroos that live within the grounds was also a big hit with us as we wanted something the our family and friends wouldnt have seen before. Their wedding packages are also exactly what we were looking for and Sarah (the wedding coordinator) has been so helpful and her response time is very efficient which puts me at ease. We have viewed a number of venues but Peppers GH seemed to be one of the only ones that allowed us to make any slight adjustments e.g if we wanted to change the style of potatoes or something then it wasnt a problem. I know something like this is trivial but it is nice to know that when we look at the menus - we have the freedom to adjust it to our preference as well as the families.
We have recently sent out our 'Save the date' cards which we ordered from Vista print (we ordered the fridge magnets, designed them ourselves and were very impressed with the quality and price).
The only thing I seem to now be struggling a bit with is trying to track down a band. I am dead set on having a band because I feel as though this would add more atmosphere to the evening but having read the past 83 pages, it seems that there is only mobile DJ's
. I have requested a sample CD from 'The Baker Boys' but as they are based in Sydney, they are a little over budget and I would rather spend more money on the photgrapher and videographer!
I have found this forum so helpful so as soon as I have secured anything further for the wedding, I will let you girls know.
