Much as I love the 2011 Brides thread, it seems like about time we had threads for each month too, to help keep us on track.
I'm marrying my darling on April 13 2011, which will be the 10th anniversary of our first date. We've chosen our venue, though we haven't actually booked it yet. We're currently looking for a celebrant and a photographer. Our bridal party was decided long ago - 3 each, plus the same number of flowergirls and pageboys. His mother will make my dress (and BM dresses, maybe with help from me) and I know what I want. Andrew and his boys are wearing kilts - a tribute to the time we spent living in Edinburgh.
Who else is getting married in April 2011, and where are you up to?

When I am grown up I will understand how beautiful it feels to administrate my life effectively.
Until then I will continue to torch all correspondence that bores me and to dance naked over the remnants of its still glowing embers.

Hi April Fool Bride (do you have a real name I can use? That's a bit unwieldy!)

We paid the deposit on our venue today. Next up - celebrant and photgrapher!

Hello everyone! I'm Daybreak's almost wedding twin - we're getting married on 12th April 2011 which will be our 11th anniversary!

We've booked our church (we're having a morning wedding! and on a Tuesday!), my FMIL is making our cake, my FSIL will be doing my makeup and I know what I'm getting as my wedding band - just need to get back to the jeweller to have the design drawn up!

Hopefully I'll have more news next week - I've got an appointment with a "floral designer" on Monday, and I'm going scouting for reception venues over the weekend!

My bridal party will consist of 2 bridesmaids - my sister & a close friend, and 2 groomsmen - DFs best friend and another friend as well as our 4 year old (well, he'll be nearly 5 then!) as ring bearer and our 2 (3 by then) year old daughter as flower girl.

I just got back from 5 days up in Geraldton (where we're planning to have our wedding).. got to scope out potential wedding reception venues.. so far there are only really 2 contenders, with one a definite leader! Just have to get DF to ok it (or come up with me one weekend so he can check it out and then ok it!)

And I met with a floral 'designer' up there who was fabulous (I just hope when I get the quote I don't want to die!) - she had some great ideas and has helped me pick a waterlily theme for the wedding! (Initially by suggesting them as part of the mix of flowers in the bouquets, but then mum suggested them as table centrepieces after the florist showed us some pics of clear cylinder vases with water & submerged orchids.. and then it all came together beautifully!)

And on Monday I have my first two appointments to go bridal dress shopping!! I'm so excited!

But I ate lots of naughty things while I was away and I couldn't get to the gym, so now I'm sad and disappointed with myself and I need to get back into "Lose weight so I can look kick ass in a dress" mode!

Hi all!

My ideal date will also be April 16th. I've only been engaged a little over 2 weeks, so still in the very early stages, but when I discovered that April 16 was in the middle of the school holidays (important being a teacher!) and will be my Mum and Dad's 45th wedding anniversary, it seemed like it was meant to be!

I have the added challenge of trying to organise a Brisbane wedding from Geelong, with one bridesmaid in Sydney and the other in Brisbane, but so far have organised a minister, found a reception venue - but really want to have a look myself before paying a deposit and contacted a photographer.

Looking forward to sharing the journey with fellow April brides!!
