Arghhhhh 10 weeks and 3 days to go!!!!!!!!!!!! I hate coming in here..you all just make me realise how much more I have left to do!!! HAHA

I've been stressing out about a few different issues and ended up getting ulcers on my tongue and 1 on gum OUCHIES!!

My lil boy has been sick with tonsillitis, so we had a rough few days with him, but he seems to be alot better today, so thankfully the antibiotics seemed to have kicked in.

The bridal shop rang me this weel to tell me that my veil is in, I had asked for it to come in earlier so I could take it with me when I have my hair trial.

We also got our 1st ceremony draft.


ok catch up time ....

Kylz - Nope no luck with the tie... the dress material didn't match with the tie they had instore. However H2b was in a wedding party at the start of the year and they wore pink ties and he still has it, I checked the 2 together and they look alright. Otherwise will have to email MrK direct and ask if I can purchase some material so the store can make a tie to match. We also didnt end up going to the travel agent...maybe this weekend.
Goodness 500 guests? That will be 1 expensive wedding...but imagine the presents?? tongue.gif LOL

Marissa - did you get hold of the wedding car company? Hope there wasnt a problem! Good luck with finding a venue for your hens night!
I like the idea of the murder night..but if you dont have a big group it works out quite expensive and I can only find 2 companies in melbourne that does it.

I still have NO idea what I want to do yet..its stressing me out, I feel like just not having one! lol

Amy - wow you are SO organised...already adressing Thankyou Cards! Well done on the weight loss.
DOn't forget we want pictures! pictures! after you try on your dress tomorrow! Good Luck and have fun.

Princess-lissy - Welcome!!! smile.gif

Millie - wow you are SO SO organised! Well done, wish I could get that organised.

Candy - Bummer about the guest list. Although I do know the feeling, orginally we thought we would have about 65ish, the list now over 90, however I do know some people wont/cant come.


Ok on my to do list....

* Finish Invites and send. Almost done just need to print top layer. (been putting it off because Im scared I'll change something lol)
* MIL translating for German Invites will then need to type them up
* Set-up Honeymoon registry
* Book a car for me/moh
* send dress samples to florist
* Finalise music
* Dress fittings
* Hair/Make up trials.
* Purchase shoes/jewellry/accessories/lingerie
* Tux for Tristen (my little boy)
* MOH/Bestman/Parents presents.
* Wedding night accomodation
* Decide whether I want programs and then make them (decided I want the fan programs)
* Wishing Well & guest book ideas and then make them
* work on video montage with H2b
* Make bonboneirre/place cards
* running sheets for cermony & reception

I'm sure there is more but can't think of anything else at the minute.
Jess

First things first, xbuffyx stop stressing so much!!!! If you are stressing enough to get ulcers then you are stressing too much! Take a break from all wedding planning for a couple of days if you need to....don't think about it at all (easier said than done i know! hehe)

For my hens night i have booked a house in Rye for the weekend and me and some g/friends are going up there for 2 nights and going to day spa and strawberry picking while we are there (and dinner and stuff ofcourse) I can't wait!!! biggrin.gif

Well girls, it's friday so everyone have a great weekend (Amy make sure you take heaps of pics in your stunning dress - ooh, i can't wait to see it!)

omgomgOMG!!! Reading this is making me go crazy. I'm really feeling the pressure of things not done or can't be done until after we get RSVPs etc. One of the biggest things not organised which I forgot to mention earlier is that I haven't got my outfit for the tea ceremony sorted yet. Mum's in Singapore at the moment (well, side trip to Hong Kong with my aunt and uncle) so she's supposed to get it sorted there but fact remains - it still ain't done.

I'm also freaking out over the probable lack of blossoms (worse since it's not confirmed) and I'm trying to find alternative centrepieces and I can't find any I really like that won't blow my budget totally out of the water.

ARGH!!!!!!!!

You girls really make me get a little bit panicky! But also make me pull my finger out and get things done...so all good!

I was supposed to have a dress fitting this morning but they rang to change it to the 8th as they had had the pleating done in a different colour to my dress! Was frustrated as I was looking forward to it and had mum coming down.. oh well, over it now, guess it just gives me extra time to find some shoes so they can do the hem.

Things I've done recently:
*Decided on bm dresses - just having a friend make them (who makes heaps of stuff), having a simple design and just need to purchase material.
*Ordered Invites - they are cutting them and then we have to print and assemble next week. I thought these went out 6 weeks before the wedding???? I am pretty sure my wedding is first so why am I the last to do and send mine... blimey charlie I am hopeless!
*Wedding bands - ordered last night and am feeling very naked without my engagement ring at the moment.
*Met with celebrant and chosen vows & readings

Things I need to do, like right now:
*GM suits - H2B is going shopping with his boys tomorrow, so fingers crossed they find something and purchase it.
*Invites - fingers crossed it is all smooth sailing and I can have them finished by the end of next week.
*Material for BM dresses
*Shoes for myself - is anyone else having difficulty with this. I think I want bronze peep toe heels but having trouble finding any. I need something that has a strap over the foot or around the ankle so they don't slip off when walking in the grass/ sand.
*Make final decisions on flowers and cake.
*Work out what I am doing for centrepieces.

Sometimes I really wish I was anal! I kinda have a little panic then I think it will be fine and it will all work out on the day.

My future brother in law said as a gift he will pay for a few days in Byron after the wedding which is lovely. We decided to wait and go on our honeymoon in March as it is a busy period for work for both of us.

Have a great weekend girls!

Kylie

WOW you girls have all been sooooo busy!!!
Not much new with me. We've got a cake, andrew is getting his boys together tomorrow for suit fittngs, and monday i'm going shopping for wedding shoes and my mums outfit.

Candyalan - wecome back!!! I'm already stuck into my assignments again, so i will be able to sympathise with you and Harmonie! I also sympathise with you about your guest list. Ours is constantly growing too. We also have about 150 ppl!

Puggie - congrats on the weight loss!!! Cant wait to see pics of you in your gorgeous dress!!!

Buffy - car hire place was just a check in, phew! Still looking for hens night venue, but it may just be done at my house now. That is good because it costs less to have it at home than at a restaurant, but it does mean a lot of mess and stress for my poor mother.

Kylz4 - your hens night sounds like it'll be a lot of fun!!!

Harmonie - hope the marriage course will be good. You're so lucky to have your assignments out of the way. Wanna do some of mine??? tongue.gif

Ok, my still to do list:

* Invites (this is my major one at the moment)
* Finalise music - have most songs picked, but need to talk to DJ
* Dress fittings - although not doing that 4 weeks before the wedding... and i need shoes first.
* Hair/Make up trials
* OOS books, and find readings
* Meet with minister
* Find and buy shoes - going on monday
* Make place cards
* Make final payments on cake, flowers, cars, photographer (not right now, but soon)
* Send away for passports
* Register with briths, deaths and marriages
* Buy chocolates for bombonierries
* Finish bridal registry


I cant believe how fast time is slipping away!!! 2 1/2 months to go (roughly) biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

Hey there, ok so ill give you all some information on our wedding!! tongue.gif

My colour scheme is pinks, an aqua/green and sliver!! I was going with blue (as my fav colour) but the invites have a pink tigerlilly and are also white, and the bridesmaids dresses are the aqua/green colour and the silver will be what colour shoes and accessories the bridesmaids and myself will be having, plus the groomsmens ties!! Our theme is a balianese/tropical beach theme!! Have made my own centre peices using those bamboo huts from dusk and having them on a suare white plate with tea light candles and a tigerlilly (pink) on side of plate!! Hope that gives you an idea!!

The time of our wedding is 3.30pm and we are having it out on the decking of the Ranelagh Club, which overlooks Port Phillip Bay (hope it doesnt rain although there is shelter over decking)
Im having my three younger sisters as my attendants, and so far all i have left to organise is:

Dress fitting (just to take up hem) Organising next week!!
Ordering favours once number of guests known
Buying rest of bridesmaids presents
Meeting with band/MC to organise running of night-booked one month before wedding!!
Finalising Cake - Not needed till October!
Having trial of hair and makeup -waiting for veil should be in this month!!
Paying everything off thats left to pay!!! huh.gif

Amy - aww sorry to hear that your MIL was unsupportive..I have no idea why she would be??? That dress is absolutely gorgeous on you!!! You should show off!

Is that Alfred Angelo? I loved that dress when I first saw a pic of it and went and tried it on but it didnt suit me whatsoever sad.gif Not sure how tall you are, but I'm quite short and I think that was problem. But its beautiful none the less.

You will be a princess on your wedding day!! smile.gif

Hi my November twin pretties!


Welcome Princes-lissy! smile.gif


Girls: I think we need to put everything in perspective sometimes. Everything will get done in time and it will be beautiful...! wub.gif

............right?? laugh.gif

I think we are all pretty much on schedule. While some of us have more things to do than others, it may be because of time restrictions.

I know with me, timing is important because the wedding is back home in Albury and I have had to do some things earlier than I may have chosen if the wedding was in Sydney. Also with Uni..crazy time!!

Puggie, I saw your beautiful dress. Your going to look just gorgeous! wub.gif


UNDER 3 MONTHS TODAY OFFICIALLY! 2 Months & 29 DAYS!! OMG!

I also had a VERY productive Friday I just have to tell you girls about!

We....

* Paid for our honeymoon in full! YAY! So its official!
* We have received our beautiful passports laugh.gif
* We have ordered our rings...split wedders for me, 1ct of diamonds in total and Alan chose a gorgeous design for his band. We won't be getting them for 2 weeks and that has also meant I am without my engagement ring for this time so they can get them to fit perfectly! I was soooooooo sad when my jeweller took it... sad.gif but as Alan and he told me, I am giving my one ring for two weeks to have another two gorgeous rings plus it back. smile.gif So done deal. laugh.gif

* Paid off my cake lady!

* Booked the Bridal party car!

It was just such an exciting day. Talking about our honeymoon and organising our rings.......oh I have been excited ever since..

But also lost without my engagement ring ... sad.gif I get a bit sad every now and then and Alan just laughs at me. So I have to tell myself it is just in its bed sleeping in our room. laugh.gif

soooooooo wedding ready and honeymoon ready.

I think I'm going to find the perfect bikini now for our holiday! tongue.gif


xxxxxxxxxx
