A thread for any 2011 brides who are hiding out there... please come and say hi we're very lonely

i'll start

My thoughts so far... we've decided on the full white wedding ( h2b has his heart set on it ) and will be tyng theknot in Denmark WA ( our favourite holiday spot, he proposed on holidays down there wub.gif )

basing everything around my favourite flowers pink oriental/asiatic lilies and butterflies. we're hopefully headig up in november to have a look at what venues are available down there. were having a smallish wedding ( absolute maximum of 60 people ) as at our engagement party we found we spent so much time running around after everyone else and chatting to everyone that we only saw each other to cut our e-cake sad.gif

we did a temporary budget the other day and for the moment we wont be having fancy cars or a dj...we'll be asking ppl with thier invites for their 3 fave songs

lol organised much ph34r.gif

Please flood us !! Please !! cos no-one around here seem interested in hearing anything wedding by me bc our wedding is 2yrs 6months away BLAH !!!!!!!! I hate hearing "oh your wedding is 3yrs away why you worrying now" so the more you flood us the more my enthusiasm will pick up !!

On to where we are up to right now ...

- We think we have found our reception venue and are booking the 1st meeting with the MC for 3 wks time.

- We also have decided FINALLY on our church and went for where myself and H2B originally wanted biggrin.gif so exciting !!!!!

- We pretty much know who will be in our bridal party, I will be having 3 BM, matron of honour, flower girl and FH will be having 3 groomsman, 1 junior GM (maybe) and a page boy.

- I know the colours I want the bridesmaid dresses and will be matching these within the theme colours of the reception.

- We have also decided where we will go on our honeymoon biggrin.gif and its a destination that I have always wanted to go too.

So Faerie you think your organised 3yrs out what you make of my obsessive planning so far eh hahahaha rolleyes.gif

fe,

got any piccies for me?

not sure how far oput we should ask my BM's and his first GM as there is practically no chance of them changing but am worried they might get bored of being bridesmaid for a wedding that takes for ever to actually get around to,

we have started getting invitation 'hints' where a friend has mentioned that when they , thier partner, thierparents, thier brothers and thier brothers partners attend our wedding they will all being staying together in the same accomodation. ummmm were you not listening when i said that we are having a SMALL wedding with only parents, siblings and absolute closest friends.

we are having a very small wedding not only because of cost ( though this helped me sell it to FH ) but because i get very very uncomfortable in large groups of people.

on a slightly more productive note i collected all my wedding magazines together today ad they almost completely fill a small suitcase and weigh soooooo much. most of them are from when we first got engaged but theres a few i bought a week ago ( they were half price ) i think they will be becoming 'hand me downs ' when my sisters become engaged laugh.gif

how areplaces being with letting you book 3 years in advance we havent gone to book anything yet but im petrified to go to an expo incase they all think im crazy for looking when ive got so long to go and that theyll have a time limit on thier expo specials anyway. actually im kind of scared of expo's anyway because of all the people

My reception venue is okay for us to book now, however have stipulated that they cant guarantee the price per head so far due to the price possibly changing nect yr, they have said that it should only rise by $1 or $2 so I am fine with that.

I emailed them this morning asking to make an app for next weekend with the MC to talk more and discuss things further smile.gif

The church I have to ring up and make an app to meet the rev and I should do that todayfor next week too lol.

I heard back last night and she has made an app to meet with us next saturday biggrin.gif

today when I was at work and on my break I was talking to one of the girls and she mentioned that our DT ( Diversional Therapist ) was a photographer too, any way I went to see her when I finished and she said she was, had been doing it for 20yrs but that she has slowed down bc of her current job at work.

I asked her some things and she has a studio up stairs in her house, she does weddings and would happy to do ours too. she said she wouldn't charge us the earth and get everything we want. So I am going to go and see her in the next 2 weeks with H2B to see what we think of her work. she also mentioned that she knows of a really EXCELLENT videographer and he too would prob give us mates rates....

Sooooo exciting laugh.gif
