Hi chookens.

Well i booked a photographer. Dearer than i wanted but i get 2 of them and they made me feel comfortable. And we decided on a band tonight (to tell the truth we only looked at 2 seriously)!!! Brian actually made the decision a week ago, but forgot to ring them back to confirm!!!

Next is the celebrant.

Im going to have a look at some dresses tomorrow...im scared! no idea why, but it scares me. but i have a free day, and i will be in town, so better make the most of it.

Honeymoons: we got a whole pile of brochures, and have narrowed it down to somewhere beachy, and accom must be in a bungalow thing (no hotels...Brians choice...rules out my plans of staying in 5 star hotels tongue.gif ). We are considering Tahiti or Hawaii. Looked at Fiji but not to sure with political unrest atm.

Hi girls,

I can't believe I haven't posted in this thread earlier- there have been so many Feb 2008 threads (or were they just 2008 threads?... I can't remember) floating around... but hopefully this one is a keeper!

We are getting married on Feb 16th, 2008. It is so much more exciting now that it is less than a year away! So far we have booked the ceremony and reception venue and the photographer and I bought my dress a couple of weeks ago (didn't plan on it, it just happened.... now I have to try not to think about it for 10+ months!!). Next we'll probably book a band/dj and the celebrant.

We are still trying to figure out our bridal party - it is sooooo hard!! Is anyone else struggling with this?

Theo75- I think a Friday wedding would be lovely. I'm sure you could save some money too... and some of your guests will appreciate a reason to have a day off work if they have to travel for your wedding!

Jasmine

So where are you up to with your planning now girls?

I have been fiddling around trying to come up with an invitation design... I figure I'd rather start making them early and do a few at a time than have to make them all at onc

I am sooooooooo addicted to ebay! I found my bridesmaid dresses the other day at the EVENTS sale that was mentioned in the general wedding section- very exciting to get one more thing done!

I made the monogram in my signature using photoshop.. the lacey flowery thing is a photoshop brush. I also bought some monograms from this site http://www.creativemontage.com/ and received them today. It's about $20 for 5- the site says it can take up to two weeks but I received mine within 3 days.... the results are here http://www.creativem...com/Luczac.html - I think I like the first and last ones the best.

Hi girls, thought I would pop in to say hi, *waves*

I can remember back to this time last year when we were planning for our Feb wedding. The time went so quickly and one day your getting excited about 10 months and the next your 6 weeks out and stressing.

Your plans seem to be coming along well. Any of you actually got your dress yet? It's the best feeling when you have.

Anywho good luck with all your planning.

Howdy Everybody!!

I am a serial long time lurker, but H2B and I have set a date finally!! 15th Feb 2008, its a Friday night and im really really excited about it!!

Planning is coming along nicely, we have booked the venue, i bought my dress this week, booked the photographer and we have decided that we are going to make the bridesmaid dresses, we have already done a 'mock' one and i am absolutely wrapped with it!! Im also off to meet with a celebrant on Wednesday!

Theo75- we decided on a Friday, not only is it cheaper but because daylight savings is still around, the ceremony can be held later, still have plenty of time for photos, and if its stinking hot it will begreat! We are saving approx $2000 just on the reception venue because its a friday!!

Honeymoons....... decided that we will be going to mexico on a 10 night cruise, we have a four month old daughter who will be 15 months then and my parents have offered to look after her so we can't go for too long, but that will still be nice!!

Anyways so glad to join!!!! biggrin.gif


Speak soon

Kylie

Thanks for popping in Tammy! I hope you're right about how fast the time will go from now on! I have my dress as of a couple of weeks ago- it is so exciting! Just have to try not to think about it too much!

Welcome Kylie! Congratulations on setting a date- and your wedding is the same weekend as mine! We are on the 16th. It sounds like your planning is going really well- your honeymoon sounds amazing! We will only be having a 'minimoon' but then we will be travelling for a few months (if all goes to plan) in late 2008.

Thanks Tammy. I dont have a dress yet, am going in a fortnight to Warnambool for a look as well as some places in Melbourne. I dont want to get it around this time, as i want to loose some weight first

Welcome Kyliel, where are you from? What else have you planned?

Jasmine, would you please tell me where you got the brush from, i havent been able to find any i like lately.

I havent done much lately, been busy at uni. I plan to go dress shopping soon, as i said, and i might try and knock out bridesmiad dresses too. Our band fell through the other night, apparently the woman found out she is pregnant...good for her, not so good for us. But we have a list of a few who were in our budget left on the list. I have started looking at invites. Are many dIYing in here?

April- re brush: go to this website http://resources.rai...rushnature.html and then scroll through until you get to the brush set called "Floral Minis" and download it- it is one of them. Otherwise if you pm me your email I am happy to email you the file when I get back from uni today.

I'm very sorry to hear about your band cancelling sad.gif I hope you can find something even better. I haven't even looked at bands properly yet.... I really should. But Mum is really into music and wants to handle it... I dunno blink.gif

As far as invites... I think I am going the DIY route. I have started trying to design them but it so hard to get them perfect! I posted them in the DIY section this morning if you want to see. They just take so long to make part of me thinks it would be so much easier to go with something plain and simple. What are you planning on doing April?

Im going to make my own invites, i made a sample a while back, i should post a photo. Mine are pretty plain and simple, yet still pretty. I liked this design, but too complicated

Hey guys, sounds like your all doing really well with all your plans. Now I feel like I'm falling behind sad.gif

Ok, well we are about to book our cars-going to have white rolls royce silver clouds as I think they are gorgeous and will suit out theme nicely, plus I can't wait to have people honk on the day because they know its a wedding biggrin.gif

I'm also going to be DIYing a lot of stuff for our day-made some sample invites-I will pop a few pics on later, but I can't find a particular flower for them so I haven't finalised a design as yet.

At the moment we are making our save the date cards, so I'll post a pic when they are done.

April_Candice, have you decided on a honeymoon destination yet? We would love love love to go to Tahiti, but I think it is the wet season in Feb so we might look at somewhere like the Maldives or something.

I would also love to go to Mexico, so whoever it was that is going there, please tell me about your cruise (sorry I forgot your name) oops.

April_Candice, we have booked a great band, but they are pricey, so if you want details just PM me.

Apart from all the above, I haven't yet looked at dresses, but I'm starting this week biggrin.gif Hope it goes well. At the moment I have no idea of what I want.
