Racheal, congratulations your wedding was gorgeous. I'm also have 2 black hummers and a black dodge for my wedding next year in May.
I'm getting married on May 1st next year in Townsville - I'm super excited. I'm getting married at the Anderson Gardens!
We're going with Andrew Kos photography he is really well priced. This is his website if you want to check him out. www.andrewkosphotography.com
I'm trying to keep the cost down as much as possible and his price was the best and he also seems like a really nice guy, which always helps I think?
We're having our reception at The Orchid Society Hall and also got the hall at a great price too, which is great. We are going with for our Caterer "Coast to Roast", there pricing is good too, and my mate had them at her wedding and they did a good job of that
I'm hiring our cars (2 hummers and a dodge) from AABA but I've got them over night and I'm not sure what the price's etc are for a few hours, maybe give them a call and inquire. Limo's are super dear here in Townsville and they only fit 6 people (our wedding party is 9 people), that's why we went with hiring of the cars. I also looked into the Stretched Tropical Jeep there pricing wasn't too bad and they can fit 9 people I think.
For my deocrations we are doing alot ourselves (when I say we I mean myself and my Nan who is super crafty thank goodness). Behind the Bridal Table we're having a curtain made from sheer net fabric with fairy lights in it. We're also having a heart sand ceremony (at the park)and the keepsake with be our centrepiece at the reception and maybe also have some tealight candles and of course with table scatters which I love.
For the other tables I'm having vases with candles in it and on the outside of the vases I'm having roses in a 'ring' shape around the vase (I have the vision in my head, so hope that makes sense). We are also having disposable camera's and table scatters. Throughout the hall I will be having a few balloons here and there.
I've been super busy with the booking of everything and I think I've done a pretty good job with booking and paying the deposits on;
Celebrant (Kaylene Watkins - she is so lovely)
Garden for Ceremony
Cake (my mates sister in law is making this for a great price)
Flowers (I'm having silk flowers and I've got them from spotlight)
Got my dress and shoes (my shoes just arrived so pretty)
Booked DJ (Poole's - a really lovely helpful lady who owns this business)
Haved picked BM's dresses, ordering in October
Have got my blue (garter), borrowed (veil), new (dress) and old (brootch which is over 100 years old, has been handed down in the family)
My Nan bought me the most gorgeous gorgeous ring cushion for our ring boy (which is my handsome son), its silver which is part of my theme
Have the Dates have been sent - Nan made these
Invitation paper has been purchased and my nan and me are going to make these (FH better hide alot of arguements happen around this time with me and my nana hehe)
Have purchased the bomboniere for the ladies, pretty little cardboard handbags which will be filled with almonds.
Have booked the make up and hair stylist for the day
That's everything I've organised so far. But have so many things that I know we want! Our daughters will be our flower girls and have picked out the pretty dresses I want for them. And as I said above our little man (who will be 8 ) is our page boy/ring boy and I've also picked his gorgeous suit. The kids are also particpating in the sand ceremony to make them feel involved in the wedding day, I think that will be really special.
Our colours/theme for the day is burgundy, silver and love hearts.
Hope everything is going well with your plans! Would be great to see more of your plans once you've made more. Hope I didn't ramble on too much lol!
Oh my goodness sorry its so long
