well we finally set a date (we had been up in the air about it for ages) and the 2nd it is. so we have put a tentative booking on our venue until i see my dad who has the deposit. we;ve also worked out a rough guest list, logistics of getting there (its out of town) and some other bits and pieces too. Oh and I have an idea about dresses and invites. all i need now is to go shopping!

and our engagement party is this weekend! i cant wait!

So how did the engagement party go April? Post some pics if you can. We are getting hitched on the same day smile.gif Where did you end up booking?It's so exciting that we are now under the one year mark. I cannot wait, although at the same time I don't want it to be over sad.gif Still haven't booked the photographer, I just want to look at a couple more. All I'm doing now is getting video quotes to pop in the budget ohmy.gif

Well our engagement party was so much fun. it went so quick though! I am waiting on getting some pics from friends and family, as we didnt take many (i think we took 5). It was so hot too, so makeup wasnt much of an option, it just melted off.

Did you change your dates Bettina? I thought you were getting married later in the month for some reason. We have an uncle who makes wedding videos, so we dont have to worry about that, am looking at several photographers this week.

We are getting married at Narmb00l in ballarat Ali.

Glad you had fun, would love to see some shots when you get some more!

Nope we didn't change our date, in the very beginning we were thinking of March but otherwise its always been Feb 2nd.

Your lucky with the video thing, I would let someone if I new they would film more than 5 minutes, but because I know everyone will be dancing,drinking etc, I will pay someone biggrin.gif

I just typed up a list of ideas etc of things i'd like to have at the wedding and it's made me realise there is so much to do. I'm actually glad we are getting so organised. I wonder when some more Feb brides will join us? We must be so organised I say biggrin.gif

Hmmm, dont know why i thought your day was different then. must be my sick brain (i have a flu).

Uncle Joe is great, he did both Brians sisters weddings and they look great...and it helps that its how he makes money. But i know what you mean about not trusting guests. My mum did and she never got the video as soon after i spilt up with the guy who did the video. She is so dissapointed with it.

What kind of things are on your list? I have a mental list of photos i would like to have taken, and half an idea about dress styles for bms.

I was wondering the same thing about other Feb brides, maybe after valentines day? But yes, we are organised.

Oh, i have designed a sig for us too if you would like to add it. thought maybe it would get us known out there biggrin.gif

May I join in?

I'll be having mine 2nd Feb as well. Originally, we had booked 1st March, but this week we decided to change it. Mind you, i'm not actually that superstitious (sp?) but FH and I both being Chinese, we tried to have the wedding so that it's still within the "Pig" year of Chinese calendar (Apparently, this is a very good year to get married and have children etc....) but don't go there, it gave me headaches just to pick a date, not to mention about the availability of the reception place!!
We have booked Quat Quatta Luncheon, rather than dinner, not only to save some money but it's also more suitable for the guest on my FH side.
I'm on a budget, so have been browsing for budget savings ideas on the forum.
My next step is to book a good photographer, before they are booked out!!!

I've just paid the deposit for the reception last Sat!!!!
I've also pretty much decided which dress I'm getting (if I don't change my mind again! tongue.gif )
We have also just booked our celebrant on Monday, and signed the intension of marriage form (or whatever u called it).
We'll meet a photographer next Friday (he's away overseas for 2 weeks, so couldn't meet earlier!), heard he's pretty good, and price is quite good too!!

Haven't done much else, other than browsing on the net for ideas for everything.

April candice, what's your budget for photography? may be we could help!

Hi,

Can I please join in with the feb weddings!!

Just thought I would add that my wedding date is 24 feb 2008, we are going to pay the deposit on our reception venue this weekend. It is more exciting now as it has taken us three months to decide on a venue.

We got engaged last November on our 5 year anniversary. long time togerher I know. smile.gif

Clints Girl: what are you studying? I started back at uni this week, and am glad ive done most of the big stuff now.

Kennis: we are looking between 1,000 and 1,500. Thanks for the offer, but we have found someone we want to book. Where are you from? And where are you getting married?

Bride2Bee: welcome. Where are you getting married? Any pics?

I'm getting married at Melbourne - Quat Quatta, a nice vintage-style big old house (not a very good description!).

I have around the same budget for photography too! The package that I'm looking at does not include an album, but i'll make one myself using the website that everyone uses here....

11 months to go......

Oh i forgot to mention. If you right click the image in my sig, save it and then put it in your own photobucket acount , add it to your sig in ido and away you go.

We are meeting with a woman today that includes all the photos (not just proofs) but no album, which suits me, as i would prefer to do it myself. I recieved one package in the mail today for 4,500! pretty sure not going for that company!

Kennis, your venue looks lovely.

Oh I forgot that we booked the band as well! Very excited as less than 11 months to go.

April-Candice- I'm doing a Grad Dip in Secondary Education this year- I have competed my BA in Psychology and want to continue in that field, but due to the wedding plans I wanted something I could finish quickly and get some money, and then I'll finish my psych stuff down the track.

Doing well with the plans, but it is scary how fast everything adds up. Has anybody thought about honeymoons and where you would like to go? Please tell... biggrin.gif
