Apparently he has to get permission off the army to go there for some political reasons , I reckon its just another way that the army tries to run our lives..
Laurette best of luck trying to convince Glenn about your dress.
Ebony - do you have pics of your dress?

Ebony, congrats on getting your new dress and a few other tasks done! Can't wait to see the pic's.
Kathy - did Amanda order her F/G dresses on-line? If so, could you PM me the details?
Exciting news for me....I got my wedding band today!!! Completely unexpected! I was getting quotes on the ring I liked, but Jase was in the city today for a work conference and finished up @4ish. I wasn't feeling the best, so I left work early to get a lift home with him. We were going past the jeweller where he got my e-ring and decided to just pop in to have another look at one of the other rings I had previously tried on. While there, the guy got a ring he thought we might like and we ended up buying it!! Very exciting. It is a bit hard to explain but I'll post a pic when I get it back (it's getting resized). Very sparkly!!! One more tick for me!
Can't believe only 7 months to go!!

Great news about everything that you allhave done - I think that I need get out the Wedding Planner and actually start making lists and ticking things off.
And I am still trying to get out of this freaking job - I have an interview on Thursday (I hope - to be confirmed 100% today) for a position with a training company, and the pay is nearly DOUBLE what I am getting now. So wish me luck for that! Then there are also two other jobs in the pipeline that are about the same pay, and I want one of them too. So I have a two out of three chance of getting the one that I want, if I get any of them at all!
I will resume wedding planning once I have sorted my career out I think.
The only thing that I have been thinking - if I move jobs, will I be able to have time off for the wedding/honeymoon? That's the only downer - although I have to do what's best for the long-term, not just what helps with wedding planning.
Maybe if I get this job and I earning lots of moulah I will be able to get the dress that I want....

The place where Amanda's F/G dress comes from has a web site but you cant buy off them they tell you where a shop in your area that has their dresses.On the site it tells you of the recomended retail price and then you get the shop price but its not that much difference.
The dress Amanda got for F/G had a recomended price of $90.00 and I payed $108.00 delivered so not that bad.
Will pm you the details.

Thanks for the wedding band compliments - Jo, you may have tried it on as its from Tiffany's (and also very expensive but I wanted the bands to match my e-ring which Alex bought from Tiffany's). Tried it on again last night (for about the 84th time!) and it looks lovely both together with the e-ring as well as on different hands. Kathy - not sure about eternity ring all on the same finger (but I think we're broke after these set of rings anyway so it might have to wait a little...!). I'll try to take a picture of the rings together and you guys can tell me what you think:)
Congrats Jo on buying your wedding band!!!! Looking forward to seeing a picture!
Laurette - so sorry to hear you weren't well when dress shopping. Things really look up with the new job prospects though! Good luck and let us know how it went!
Ebobbly your dress is really pretty! Loving the colour
Alex and I will probably head over to the wedding expo in Carlton (Melbourne) this weekend. We got free tickets from our dancing school who will be there. Am hoping to get more ideas and inspiration. Anyone else going?

What a productive week as far as wedding plans go Nothing else done though better get my ass into gear and do some work to pay for all of this.

As does the cake!
Only four and a half hours until the interview... starting to think more about it and stress!
Posted 18 August 2005 - 02:06 PM
Best of luck Laurette with your interview - I know how nervous you fell - I'm in the exact same position at the moment, except that I'm not leaving one job for another, I actually have no job at the moment, which makes wedding deposits and stuff a little on the difficult side!
Yay, am getting much more organised now - have sorted out my cake design and flavours (we're having cupcakes which will be given at the end of the night as bonbons!) That sure made my life a little easier - 2 jobs, 1 solution!
Mum dug out her veil last night and so we are in the process of altering it to something more "me"
Am in the process of getting my stationery order completed - just checking on quantities
BUT - Still haven't organised a celebrant!!! Eeeeeeeek!
Love and Hugs
