We are getting married on 2.10.10!
So far, we have booked our ceremony & reception location, photographer & videographer. We have booked 2 out of our 3 cars, and are about to book our wedding entertainment (one-man band). I am going to start dress shopping in about 2 weeks...

I love having lots of time to plan everything - it takes all the stress away!!!

Haha,that is funny! You have done so much more than us!Idid forget though our entertainment DJ/Pianist comes with our venue, so at least that is done. And the guys are dressed too (in kilts).
BUT.. need to get cracking by the sounds of things!

Has everyone had their engagement party or are you havin one at all? We are planning ours for Feb next year, as my best friend and Chief Bridesmaid is in the UK until then. A bit close to the wedding probably, but I couldn't do it without her here.

Dresses.. the fun part.. I keep putting off looking as I keep tyring (and failing!) to lose weight first. Extra stupid as I have been trying and failingfor at least 10 years now!
Still VERY excited to looking tho!

Keep me posted on when any of you get stuff done,I love to hear as my friends are either long married or single!

And shoes are so hard! I have had a lookand there isnot much choice.

Kay - We had our engagement party back in July, although we have been engaged since February so it was as long as I could wait, as I was too excited!! Plus my younger brother lives in Perth, so we wanted to organise it so that he was able to come. That's why we are getting married on Oct long weekend, so that it gives him time to fly over! I am the same as you in terms of dresses - have been putting it off for ages, due to the whole weight thing!! Lost 5kg for our engagement party, but seem to have put it all back on again... sad.gif I have made the crunch decision though, and we are going next weekend!! Im very excited but also very nervous! Especially about the whole weight thing...I want to feel beautiful when I try on a dress - not like a big fat slob! haha. We will see how it goes....

All brides look beautiful on their wedding day and I am sure you will too. After all they want to marry us just as we are right! Just do the best you can, no one likes those brides who have starved themselve silly for months only to look like a shadow of their former selves! I am taking the plunge too at the end of the month and trying on some dresses! Going down to Melbourne actaully which I am excited about.
Good luck with your dress trying on the weekend smile.gif

Hi girls,

I found my wedding dress yesterday!! Started shopping a couple of weeks ago, and had found a few nice ones, but nothing which really stood out! I liked bits and pieces off each of them, but there was always one thing I didn't like... So, took the day off work yesterday, and went down to Sydney (im in Newcastle) with my mum.. found THE dress, and theres not one thing I would change! It's true what they say - I really didn't want to take it off!! Im abit sad, coz my BMs wernt with me to let me know their opinions, and so they could get involved, but I love it so much, im sure they will too! Now the hard part is trying to keep quiet for 11 months!! hehe..

Hows everyone else going???

Hiya,

Im a 23rd october 2010 bride. it was changed yesterday because my grandparents who are very important to me, couldn't make it to the date we previously set (6th november 2010) as the booked a cruise which they couldn't get a refund for, so it was easier for me to change rather than them change. Our wedding theme is frangipani's & the beach.

So far I have the photographer, celebrant, surf club (where we are having our reception), my nan is doing the flowers, BM dresses, GM pants, ring cushion, garter, catering (along with my brother and uncle cuz they are chefs, and that is their gift), we are just having a help ur self summer spread buffet, with salads, sliced meat, desserts, etc..

FMIL is making our wedding cake, I have already made up our save the date packs, just need 2 send them after I print a new cover letter, I've made our invites, rsvp, thank-yous, place cards and table numbers (which are named after aussie beaches) on the computer, just need 2 change the date (as it only got changed yesterday). Our favours are message in a bottle, with sand and shells. The messages are just different poems, our names and wedding date.. That is it so far

Wife2be yay for u finding ur "the one" dress. I have to go dress looking, to find a style to suit me, as I am buying my dress online. We have a very low budget of $4000 to pay for the WHOLE wedding..

I still have to lose 60ish kgs before about june.. Fingers crossed I can do that (I've lost nearly 40kgs already in 6mths, so im happy with that so far smile.gif)

Yay to sharing this journey with u ladies, and sorry for the long post..

Wow! That's amazing!! Well done! I clicked on your link to the diet you are on.. it's obviously working for you!! I ideally would like to lose 20kg before our wedding. I did a quick stint on weight watchers in May and lost 5 kgs, so Im wanting to re-join after xmas and hopefully will lose the 20kgs!! You obviously swear by your diet....

You are VERY organised!! You even have table numbers and everything done! I'm pretty sure I have found our bridesmaid dresses, but just want to double check that there is nothing else out there... THe boys are going to go and get their suits after xmas, as one of our GM is going overseas for a couple of months, and won't be back until August. We are going to check out a band on Friday night, so hopefully we will have that sorted after the weekend, and then next on the list is sorting out flowers, decorations & cake!!!

How is everyone else's plans coming along??

I am getting married Sunday 3rd October 2010. We needed to find a long weekend because my church won't marry me on a Saturday and I can't hold the reception on a normal Sunday because then half the guests won't turn up (cultural wedding reception!). It was pretty hard finding a suitable long weekend - as it is, the 3rd October is my dad's birthday. Do you think its suitable to have the wedding on the same day as his birthday?

So far I've tentatively booked the church, the reception and ordered for my wedding dress to be made.

I bought my dress last weekend and am SO excited. Was nothing like I had set out to find. I was after something simple... well lets just say the one I chose was NOT at all the simple dress I had in mind, but I fell in love. Did all the right things in all the right places.. best of all... I don't have to loose and weight to fit into it! Bonus! I will still try to tone up, but Lord knows I have only failed in the past!!
Very excited and I too do not know how I will shut up about it for 10 months! I already accidentally let slip to my groom that I bought a veil!

WOW, you are super organised! Good on you. And as for losing 40kgs, you must feel amazing, well done! As I said in a previous post, enjoy your engagment and don't get hung up on the amount of kgs you have to lose. Remember he loves you as you are and just do the best you can. I just bought my dress, got a gorgeous dress when I was down in Melbourne for $2500, so for $4000 you can seriously get something spectaular! I bought a dress that fits the body I have NOW, not the one I was hoping to be! So much less pressure. And if I do lose weight, all well and good too!
Dress shopping is so exciting, wish you the best of luck on your search!!
