    Hi Sarah

    I am 28 and am marrying Damian in Cheshire. So far we have a church, reception venue, our accomodation and a DJ. We have also picked our BMS and ushers etc. I am just starting to look at Wedding insurance and photographers.

    I hope that we can keep in touch over the next 18 months!

    Hi Emma

    I'm getting married then too. Church wedding followed by the reception at the Newcastle Gateshead Hilton. Got quite a lot of the other things planned but need to finalise a photographer and our wedding insurance.

    Rilou81, your not behind don't worry. I've only done so much because h2b lives abroad so had to do things when he was over. You still have plenty of time to sort everything

    We want a photographer that puts the pics on a high resolution cd with full copyright so we can do what we like with them! Have started looking at dresses online and in magazines. How bout u?

    Hi Emma and everyone,

    I am also getting married 22nd Aug 09. We have most of the big things booked, churh, reception, photographer, cake, florist and mens suits. I have my dress picked but not ordered. Im in a flap about bridesmaid dresses at the min, I cant find a gold or champagne that either matches/ compliments my dress and the mens waistcoats. Not many pictures online of these colours either. Had my heart set on the Forever yours champagne but its a bit dull.

    Sorry to go on a bit! Nice to see there are a few of us getting married on the same date.

    Hi Nickii - I cant believe how super organised you are!! How long have you been engaged?
  • Nickii26hNickii26h Posts: 293
    Hi Emma, We got engaged end of November last year on holiday. Its all happened pretty quick to be honest I only went to the church to ask about availability and ended up booking it lol. Its suprising how far in advance you have to do it. Its all gone a bit quiet now nobody wants to see me until next year. Even the dress shop told me to come back Christmas when the new designs come out.

    We got our photographer for £500 You get a full album with 80 of your choice, all 150 of the proofs in a little album and 2 parent albums which I though was good considering some charge over a grand for the same thing.

    Have you been engaged long?
  • emmaxyzemmaxyz Posts: 355
    We got engaged on the 23rd December although we had already been out and picked the ring months before my fiance wanted to pick his moment!!
  • emmascan101emmascan101 Posts: 1,495
    We only got engaged recently the week after valentines he made me wait lol but wed spoken about having a summer 09 wedding previously, meeting went well with our photographer and we def going with him he seemed really nice and his work was really good, fiance ended up liking the more expensive package so we changed to that, trying to think of colour scheme now have you gals sorted yours yet?? i like red and white but fiance and my dad are spurs supporters and dont want red - hw lame
