Thank God! Finally some Adelaide brides :D This is what I've booked so far:

Church: St John's Anglican Church in Halifax Street
Reception: The Adelaide Pavilion on South Terrace
Photographer: Evermore Photographics
Videographer: Premier Video Productions

Over Christmas I will be seeing the following:

Makeup: trial booked with Gabrielle Boulton
Hyatt: for wedding night accommodation
Decorations/Flowers: Labours of love

Plus meeting with the Pavilion as I haven't actually seen the room yet, a hairdresser who is a friend of a friend and my dressmaker for my BM dresses.

I will also try to see Bensons Limousines if they are open and How Sweet It Is for cakes, once again if they are open. I also want to try and find some shoes as no luck in Brisbane. Has anyone been to the Glass Slipper in town?

As if Christmas isn't hectic enough!

Its great that there are some other Adelaide girls on here now, we can share all our knowledge and recommendations :D Its especially frustrating for me since I live in Brisbane and can't just jump in the car and go and look at stuff. I hope I will be able to get 80% of it sorted at Christmas time then I will only have to do a few things in my next trip in April. Will have to leave the DJ until then, after I have sorted out my list of songs.

Have you ever been to the hyatt before? I stayed there after my formal and it cost an absolute fortune, I would reccomened rendevouz allegra (beautiflu rooms, great breakfast, half the price) Think it's in waymouth Street, but I must admit the Hyatt was nice, jsut not a really big room and we were on 2nd to top floor.

The reception venue that you're booking do you know their web address? I'm looking for a nice place with reasonable prices at the moment.

When are you getting married?

I have stayed at the Hyatt before, long time ago though. I am meeting with them to see if I can negotiate a good rate for us and some of our interstate guests, they are more exy than other hotels but that's where FH wants to stay so I guess I can let him have ONE thing his way hehe.

My brother had his reception there, although theirs was a lunch time reception. The food was really nice and the servings generous. Also as it is in Veale Gardens there are some nice spots for photos. You can get married in the gardens and go straight in for the reception.

My wedding is 24 November 2007.

Yay, more Adelaide girls!

We're in sept 2008, so a long time to go still. We've booked St Peters Cathedral in North Adelaide and haven't decided on a reception venue yet, thinking about Ayer's house on North Terrace or a few of the Hotels in town.

My Nanna is making our cake (little does she know, lol)
Video will be done by my uncle
Photos we're thinking lion and blue, from Hahndorf, they're photos are great! So Pretty's.

Cars: we're going to approach teh American muscle club of adelaide and see if anyone will drive us, they generally do it cheap, like $50 per car. Saves a lot of $$

My Aunty might make my dress, and I've started making Bombonerie. Quite organised actually, lol :)

Another Adelaide bride here! Doesn't look like there are many of us!

I'm getting married on 19 January 08. I wanted earlier but Ayers House was booked out until then (and that was back in June 06!) So far I've organised...

Reception - Ayers House (and cake)
Church - St Johns, Adelaide
Photographer - Studio Mode
Videographer - Davlin Film
Cars - All American 57s
Music - Amicus Strings (ceremony) and Keep the Change (reception)
Flowers - Fab Functions

I'm picking my dress up next weekend, so excited! Just have to find dresses for my BMs. Have got invites and bonboniere planned, just need to make, and need to organise suits for the guys from Axel Beers!

Look forward to chatting with you all!

Shan: We we're looking at Ayers house are you using the brasserie? It's gorgeous, but we're not sure everyone will fit in there withouth being squshed.

Hey Mel,

Yes we're using the Brasserie. We're hoping to only have about 120-130 people so will use the Brasserie to sit everyone and leave the wooden floor at the front for the band and dance floor.

We're hoping it won't be too squishy as it can seat approx 180 people in total.

I was told that it can hold 120 sitting?? is your reception cocktail or sit down dinner?

We looked at a few photos and were worried that 120 people would be too squished, even with 100 I thought it's be squished.

We are having a sit down dinner.

You can fit approximately 120ish people in the actual glass part of the Brasserie but they can fit extra people on the woden dance floor part if you need.

We are having ours set out so that we have the long bridal table along the front (10 people), then three tables of 12 down each side, and one table of 8 at the back on each side. And also another three tables of 10 through the middle.

So that's 128 people But we're hoping to not have any more as I want to keep the wood floor section free for the band and dance floor.

I've just checked the website and it says that it can seat 200 for a banquet or 300 for cocktail? I'd recommend going to have a look at it if you haven't already as they'll explain how they utilise the space of both the actual Brasserie and the wine bar/coach house.

How many people are you thinking of having?
