    To be honest i'm only 22 and I don't feel too young these days!!

    How are you, when did you get engaged?? How far along are you planning etc? Whens ur big day planned?

    I'm getting married next April (9th) and we're having it in Southampton! Although my budget isn't huge compared to the 'big budget brides' section I do feel I am having everything I want for the big day.

    Love to hear ur ideas! xxx

Im just waiting for some wedding fayres- you know of any? Whereabouts do you live? My budget is small like def under £2000 and thats pushing it...yours???

    Hi, aug 2010 isnt that far, think in months and then get rid of xmas and new year (too drunk to remember those months) then take away some months for other things happening and ur left with so little it scares me!

    Wedding fayres are normally in spring or autumn once wedding season is over so we're screwed till september time, but they are so worth it, free chocolate fountain and gifts etc!

    My budget is £10,000 but my mum is picking uop the bill, she's being great about it, i'm really lucky. I hope to pay her back for the boring bits though, such as room rental and food/drink. So far i have booked:

    botleigh grange hotel for venue, harpist, wedding rings and stationary. I'm fairly pleased with my progress etc as other stuff keeps happening, such as my mum getting married before me!! Love weddings, xxx

    Hi ladies

    I'm not a particularly young bride to be (27) but noticed the title asking for Herts brides, so thought I'd join in! I live close to Herts... in Enfield. I'm at a really early stage of planning, haven't set a date or anything, as we are not looking to get married until Sept/Oct 2010 probably. Just been doing some research on the net about venues etc, I love the look of Theobalds Park and Tewin Bury Farm!

    Katteh - my sister lives in Essex & she mentioned Gosfield Hall to me... it looks absoultely gorgeous!!

  • Pink-1982Pink-1982 Posts: 177
    Hello Summersday...Im not particulaly young either...but the girls on here are really friendly and nice!

    So your planning the same year as me 2010...Im just soooo excited about it- that I had to join up for a wedding forum straight away!!!!image
  • Hiya

    I can't believe there are so many people that are local it's crazy.

    i haven't really been on these chat bits until recently ( leaving a little late)

    We only have 28 days to go and STILL don't have centrepieces for our tables...oops!! oh well I'm sure we'll sort it in the end!

    So where is everyone getting married??

    We have gone for the Hertfordshire Golf and Country Club

    I am 23 at the moment and from Barnet....

    We are looking at loads of venues but the recent favourite is the Landsdown Club in Mayfair.

    Also having a massive debate about the weather in terms of which month to get married. So many of the venues I have looked at are double the price in the summer and if the weather is going to be like it is at the moment we were thinking of going for autumn or winter instead and expect bad weather.....

    does that make sense?? :\) xx
  • MrsKP_MrsKP_ Posts: 2,035
    Hi Chubbs,

    That's exactly what we've done, because of the complete lack of certainty about the weather we booked for December, our venue is double the price in Summer so it seemed pointless to risk it.

  • Hi, I'm from Ware! can i join in? I'm 26 in one week!!! but I still feel very young (most of the time!)

    I think we are very lucky to live in Herts, We have so many great venues to choose from. I'm getting married at St Mary's in Ware (I really wanted to get married at St Mary's in Cheshunt as that is where all my family got married, but it was a bit far from my venue)... the reception is at bush hall in Hatfield on the 6th December this year!

    Hope everone's planning is going well, it's so much fun isn't it!!!

    Jo x

  • Chubbs1ukChubbs1uk Posts: 2,013

    I've just looked at another venue's website and am back to a summer wedding!!!! Welcome to my world! Tomorrow I will want December! image

    Where have you decided to get married??

  • Hi Winterbridetobe,

    Happy Birthday for 1 week, hope you have a fantastic day.

    when are you getting married??


  • Thank you Mrs-Gto-be (Clare), I'm getting married on the 6th December this year, I cant believe its only 4 months (give or take a couple of weeks),this year seems have gone so fast. You must be so excited with only a few days to go! Have you managed to sort out your table centres yet? Your wedding will be so lovely, the Hertfordshire Golf and Country Club is really nice.

    Have you got everything else organised?

    Jo x

  • Hi Winterbride (Jo)

    We are pretty much there now and my candles arrived yesterday for hte centrepieces so all I need now is mirrors and they are done yippee!!

    I can't believe it is only 3 weeks now I am soooo excited I am booking my final dress fitting today and chasing replies and then all I have to do is wait!

    The next 4 months are going to absolutely fly by for you, it seems like only yesterday I had 4 months to go and I honestly don't know where the time has gone.

    Where are you getting married??
