ahk, thanks for that. We're currently looking at DJ paul slow, he's around the 550 mark, but I've heard that there's a DJ floating around for around the 400 mark, which would be great.

Maybe some vineyards? I spose the beach isn't too far away so if you really wanted beach photos you could go down there. Are there any old buildings that way? They always look good in photos and if there are any local parks that have nice flowers/trees? Maybe you could go for a drive around the area one weekend and suss out a few places. Alternatively, your photographer might've shot some photos in that area and may be able to help you with some locations. Are you having both the ceremony and reception at the winery?

Hi everyone!

How's everyone going with all their plans? Haven't been in the Adelaide thread for a few weeks! So just thought I would drop by!!

No updates for me at the moment, other than I pick my dress up in a week! I ordered it 2 months ago and its ready! We are going to visit my sister in the states for a week and I will be picking up my dress at the same time. I am excited, as I feel its all starting to become real!!! Also, my sister is my bridesmaid, so we will be buying her dress, shoes, jewellery etc aswell. Its going to be a busy week for us, thats for sure! Shopping, shopping, shopping (yay!) :lol: :lol: :lol:

Have a look at the shoe shed, they have some lovely shoes starting at $20, but the ones I like are $80 ish. Also Betts and Betts and williams shoes have some good shoes or even at ahrbour town.Or if you're game (depending on your budget) have a look in rundle mall there's a few shops in there (glass slipper, myer etc)

Good luck.

Thanks Mel! I went to the bridal fair over the weekend and saw a stall there for a shop in Melbourne Street in North Adelaide. So You or something. I checked them out and they have a massive range of bridal shoes that were pretty reasonably priced! They started at around $50 and were definitely what I was looking for! I was a bit hesitant as I didn't want to spend too much on shoes I might not wear again but the one's I got were beautiful and only cost me about $100!!! One less thing to worry about!!!

I'm thinking of having some kind of musicians play in the church garden after the ceremony while everyone is mingling and having champagne.

I didn't really want a string quartet, I was thinking something more upbeat - I really like Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra type stuff, swing I think its called. I've rung a few jazz bands etc but nobody seems to have what I'm looking for. I don't even really know what I'm looking for :oops: Can any Adelaide girls help? Its frustrating being so far away.

Are you after a band? We went to a wedding last yr in november and the bride's brothers band played, they did a lot of michael bouble (or however you spell it) and frank sinatra type of stuff and some jazzy stuff mixed in, very talented. I can find out fi they perform at weddings normally for you if you like.

Thanks mel, that's the kind of thing I am after but just like a four piece acoustic type ensemble, just background music really not a full on band as such. There also won't be any power in the garden. The other thing I am finding with some groups is they have a 3 hour minimum booking. I really only need them for an hour after the ceremony.

But yeah I would love some more info on this band if you think they would be suitable for what I need :D Thanks.

I know wat type of thing you're after, but they would need power, they're a full on band. Sorry...I'll keep my eye out for anything else suitable.

Are any of you going to your usual hair dresser for wedding hair? My hair dresser wants to do my hair, she's fantastic, but I'll have to go to the salon, do you think this will be ok? We're haing a 1.30 ceremony in North adelaide and I live in northern suburbs (modbury area) I;m worrying about time, but I guess if we book early we'll be fine... Just me worrying I reckon, lol.

If anyone on here is looking for a cheap but good DJ look up on the weddingsa website under reception planner, then entertainment and look at goodvibrations DJ, he's got great prices, good customer service and great package.

We're getting him for 5.5 hours of DJ and MC duties

various lighting effects included and microphone to use

$450!! Everywhere else is over $550 and doesn't include the lighting effects, they're extra!!

So glad that's booked, nothing really left to book! :D but sad that I now don't have an excuse to search all day for wedding stuff 'everything's booked Mel, do some uni work' is what h2b wil say from now on, lol.

Photography: out of our budget, so brothers girlfriend is taking photos for us
Bonbonierre: Personalised clear boxes from kardella.com.au filled with choccy hearts
Entertainment: jukebox from superjuke.com.au
Cake: either Sugar & Spice or Scrummys
