kay: the reason i wanted to lose weight is because i was 176kgs.. at 22 tht is not a good weight. and i want to be in a healthier weight range as FH and i are ttc from about july next yr onwards.. . i figure, what ever my size is about april, im ording in that size. right now im just plotting along, is the weight comes off it comes of.

I think i may have found "the one" (my dress, already have the man smile.gif )

Wow - $4000 for a dress is a HUGE budget!!!!!!

My dress cost $700 inc slip - but i got it while i was in america and everything is cheaper there! I LOVE it! I went looking because I knew I wouldn't find anything reasonably priced that would fit my boobs (16G) without having major alterations.....

I am trying to not put on weight - as i lost weight while i was overseas, and i dont want to put the 10kg back on and not fit in the dress. Id also hate to lose too much weight though that my dress doesn't fit.. I'm a 14 (except in the boobs) so am happy with that - just want to tone up - and flatten that tummy... oh - and the arms i guess.... ok - lets tell the truth - never happy!

I have booked ceremony and reception, band, engagement party catering, photographer, found celebrant just waiting to hear if he's avail... and thats it.... but its the big (and expensive) parts done at least! smile.gif smile.gif

Erin: i figured i didnt clarify in my first post. it isnt $4000 for a dress, its $4000 for the WHOLE wedding.. LOL, maybe i should have put for the whole wedding in the post.. my bad

Yay on all the stuff u already have done..

I made colouring book packs for all the kids at our wedding and had them all completed, then we had to do emergency wedding date change, and now i have to re make most of the elements of them because of the date (it had the old date on them sad.gif ) an well gives me something to do...

oh - ha ha - that changes things... I was just thinking cheap and $4000 didnt go together.. Wow, $4000 for the whole wedding is certainly a budget though. DF and I had our heart set on a few elements of our wedding and I can't believe how quickly everything adds up - I thought my wedding would be cheap but it certianly wont be.... Not to matter, it's only once you do it, I just hope the parents chip in so we are not paying it off for the next million years!

Hello gorgeous girls! So glad to find you all here, sorry I haven't responded since I first posted lol. As for our plans, we've had to find a new venue, as a month or so ago, our venue cancelled on us. They sold it (news to us, we didn't even know it was on the market), and the new owners (they also own Potters) decided our wedding wasn't important enough to keep the venue open for and decided to close it down sad.gif

Thankfully we've now found a new venue.... We've booked our celebrant, And thats about it. I've been so badly indecisive about everything. I have a dress on lay-buy, but I've decided I'm not in love with it.... I'm worried that its not "enough" given our new venue has a very rich opulant feel to it. Um, have had bm issues, but think I'm sorted bm wise now. I have our rings at home, and my earrings. One of my mum's friends is a photographer, so she's doing our photos for us, and I think thats about it for now. Lemme know if you wanna see photos! biggrin.gif

Has everyone had their engagement party or are you havin one at all?

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


Kay, We actually had our E-Party in July of 2008, we just had some family and friends at home for a lunch. Was pretty low key, but did the trick smile.gif

Don't even talk to me about shoes! I found the perfect pair, the last pair in my size in the perfect color, I had them here at home, had them in their box on the couch, (had been comparing bm dress samples to the color of the shoes.... they were a gorgeous purple) went out for an hour to put FH's cheque into the bank, came home and my 8 month old puppy had chewed them up!!! sad.gif blink.gif unsure.gif So now one of them no longer has a slingback on it.... so the search starts again!!

Darls, you will be gorgeous no matter what, and you will take his breath away when you walk that aisle!

Ok so 17-10-10 is booked in for ceremony and reception at emu bottom homestead. Ceremony and pre-dinner drinks in gardens - then reception in woolshed.

Our engagement party is coming up fast - 6th Feb at our house. We have caterers doing a spit roast (lamb, pork and beef, with spuds, corn, bread, salads etc - and only about $10pp!!!) So that will be yummy and very exciting - but HEAPS to do at home before then (so I really shouldn't be on the internet!!!)


So far I have booked/purchased:
Ceremony - Emu Bottom Homestead gardens
Reception - Emu Bottom Homestead woolshed
Celebrant - Bernard Morey
Band - The Baker Boys - 1 hr pre-dinner drinks acoustic music in gardens and 4 hours reception
Dress - Purchased while I was in the USA
Photographer - Artshot
Special surprised entertainment at wedding
Honeymoon booked and mostly paid - Thailand - 6 nights at Marina Phuket Resort (between Karon and Kata) in a jungle view room - DEVINE! and 3 nights in Bangkok at Siam@Siam
Found a collection of frames and mirror i purchased AGES ago and never used will look PERFECT at our candy bar/guest book area - will put some pics in a couple, and some quotes (was looking where i could include the whinnie the pooh quotes and this will be perfect) in a couple of others - and then "Candy BAr - please help yourself and please sign our guestbook" type message in the last one!
Flowergirl dress - DF's niece is going to wear the same dress that I wore to my cousins wedding many many years ago - i have kept it all this time so am going to have it cleaned for her to wear. Will fit her perfectly!!!!!


And things in the pipeline:

Looking at going to Rupertswood Mansion for some photography
Going shopping with MOH for BM dresses in two weeks - will also have my E ring re-sized while I'm there and look at wedding bands (DF got ring in Sydney - we live in Melb and MOH lives in SYD)
Have started looking at flowers and cakes
Wedding night hotel chosen - but not yet booked
Have found the perfect candy jar set - just waiting for the shop to get them in - and not expensive at all
Stationary - found what we want online - just need to wait until we have final timeline in place before ordering and printing them


Things still to do:

BM dresses
Flowers
Cake
Bonbonerie (wasn't going to have any but have found some cute things that are not expensive and match our stationary etc so might have to get them!)
Suits
Cars - probably just going to use our own - but looking at what friends have also
rings
jewellry
hair and make up (this one will be HARD!)
MUSIC - also hard - will play from CD/Ipod for ceremony but having trouble picking what songs. Same goes for first dance
MC - still need to choose - HUGE lack of suitable options here
Shoes, viel etc will look in sydney

Ummmm - surely there is more I have missed!???

So exciting to see things falling into place though!!! smile.gif

Friday 15th October Wedding

I am getting married 15th Oct in QLD (I live in VIC - so a bit harder to plan!).

I have booked a ceremony and reception venue, a celebrant, a boat (as we are doing a 1 hour cocktail cruise for the guests in between ceremony and reception) and I have bought the bonbonniere.

We are having a beach/river wedding... theme being white flowers, big green leaves & bamboo. I'm thinking champagne coloured bridesmaid dresses - will this match? What suits for the boys will go with this?

I have accommodation booked and some chair hire - thats all so far!!

I tend to be concentrating on all the little exciting details - SHOES!! I'm thinking of wearing as my 'something blue' the blue Manolo Blahniks that Carrie wore in SATC movie! Does anyone remember these shoes - the ones in the WIR!!

I see the website 'panache' also has some nice looking ones!!

Any October QLD brides??

xoxo

Wow, didn't realise it has been so long since I was on here, with Xmas and New Years and then we went to Thailand for two weeks, really got away from me.

You girls are doing so well, organising your save the dates and invites already, i really need to do that. I just got an invite from a freiend that I love, looks to have been printed, I am going to ask where from ansd how much, as I think i would not be that great at making my own! But if it is very expensive, I would definitely give it a go, both the mums and my bridesmaids are quite creative, thank goodness.

I wen to see my friend who is a wedding decorator at the end of December and got all my decorations and flowers sorted which is awesome. Have cars in the pipelines apparently (left that to him... hopefully he can do that one job!!). BM's are picking their own dresses, friend is now organising the cake for me, so really just leaves hair, make up, invites and placecards, bonboniere... I think!

Found some great shoes today in Kmart of all places... for $15! There were two pairs there that were $15 each and very wedding-ish, ivory and a darker ivory with bows and brooches, well worth a look. I will take them to my next dress fitting. if they turn out a bad match, I am only $30 out!

PS, gained 5kgs over Xmas... disaster! Oh well, have 5 months to lose it before next fitting!!

LOVE your brooch, very vintage and gorgeous. I start TAFE soon too!! What are you studying? I am continuing in accounting.. (which will take me the rest of my life to finish at this rate!!) but have cut down to one night a week this year, as I don't want to be a monster! I feel I deserve a year for me!

hiya ladies.. Hows everyone going..

Me not too bad.. We have currently added another colour to our scheme.. Its crimson red, shades of blue, and light yellow..

havent really organised anything lately. havent had the money, though i am currently making a locket, that i can add my grandfathers photo in it so he is there with me in spirit.. (he passed away in 2005)

this is lame of me, but i already have all my stationary printed up.. We ran through it all before we printed, and everything is all organised. it only cost me $30 for all my stationary, which is 18 invites (3 per page), 20 rsvps (4 per page), 20 thank-yous (4 per page with space to write addresses, and thank u message), 54 place cards, 54 thank-u tags for favours.. I designed the invites myself, and am quite proud..


invite back - wording (location blacked out due to certain people net stalking me trying to find out and tell people i dont want there)

hope everyones plans r going well.. will be back 2moro, after i come up with a list i have done smile.gif

Kay- u'll lose the pesky extra christmas weight smile.gif and yay bout the shoes.. Im having red converse sneakers for my wedding shoes.. I dont like heels and its my wedding.. LMAO
