Any 24th May 08 brides out there?

Hi there,

Getting excited and stressed that the wedding is not even a year away now!! Argh!!

Just wondered how much everyone has got done/booked to see if i should be doing more/less?

Also is anyone sending out Save the date cards? I thought about sending them out with my Christmas cards?! How far in advance are you sending your wedding invitations out? With it being a bank holiday - i'm thinking the earlier the better as people plan other things to do on long weekends?

    Hi Becky, yes there are a load of us on here! I am sending out save the date cards but I am sending them towards the end of the summer when some people may start to think about next years holiday.



    My real invites will be going out end of feb /march. So where are you getting married Becky?

    Hi Becky,



    I personally would not be happy leaving it until chrsitmas to send them, however I am a total stress head about these things and have to do everything well, well in advance (we booked our venue 2 and a half years in advance just to be certain we got it!) other Brides on hre may be able to tell you diferently.



    We are from Birmingham and getting married at a hotel called Hogarths in Dorridge (www.hogarths.co.uk if you fancy a peek) be prepared to get addicted to this site though, I come on here almost every day and have got sooooooooo many ideas from it! I guarentee you can ask any question on here and someone will help you

    Me!!!!!!! Actually, I created the last post!!! image



    My parents want to order the invitations soonish - that's about the only thing I'll let them have control of! But not sure when to sent them....maybe August? Gives time to chase up the many who probably won't bother to RSVP! Once numbers are certain we can think about seating plans.



    Having problems finding a photographer in the Notts region though.



    Have you got your dresses yet? I found mine a few weeks back I thought it was way too early until the woman said it takes the best part of a year to have it made then fitted, refitted, etc.



    332 days to go!!!!

  • Hi Becky



    I'm getting wed on 4th May 2008, and I too had the same dilema. I decided to send the save the date cards out with the xmas cards, and on Valentines day I'm sending out my invitations. Dunno what you think but I thought thats time enough.

    Good Luck

    Where in Notts are you? I'm in Retford (getting married in Leics though) ;\)
  • I'm a 24th May bride as well - am getting all excited about it again now because it's nearly just 10 months away. I have even ordered my dress now so am starting on my diet!

    I haven't done ANYTHING yet, not even booked the registry office but we're hoping for May 24th! Think I'd better get my skates on as everyone else seems to pretty much know exactly what's going on! image
  • hey im a 24thmay bride too, im actually a little scared as i have everything booked and organised and i mean everything my dress and accessories are in and so has my mother and motherinlaw 2be got their outfits in too. Ive also got my invitations and placecards in and scrolls for the tables done. Do i have a problem!!!!!!!!!!!! I am a person who likes to have everything done really early for example i buy birthday cards 1-2 months inadvance before the birthday so i dont forget about so lo0ng as the verse is right!!

    So excited only 309days to go. Im real excited cant wait,

    Does anyone out there fell a bit nervous about a particular side of a family going to the wedding and worried that there will be murder?????? My mum was married twice and although my mum, dad and stepdad all get on i have 4 sides to invite and my mothers side is quite a mad bunch and im really worried they will start a fight on my big day. h2b and i had decided that we would have a zero tolerance on the lead up to wedding (decided this when it was 2.5yrs to wedding), if anyone annoyed either of us or upset any of us in anyway up to the wedding they would not be invited. already my so called aunt on my real dads side is not going (she punched my bro and put a restraining order against my mum) and my mums brother and his wife as we went to my aunts wedding in march there and they caused a roit and my uncle threatened my h2b and made fun of his grandad who was very important here in ireland. My h2b was devatated. So their not going. Id love not to invite them but my mum would be real upset there is only about 4 of my mums bros and sisters that we both really get on with and no will be no trouble but im at a loss and this is the only thing giving me sleepless nights and major headaches.

    Sorry for rambling but i had to get the point across so you know were i am at. Any suggestions would be helpful????imageimage
  • i think i will send save the date cards out too, didnt kow anything about them, I must live on another planet. Might send them out at xmas too. Im sending my invites out 3months before to make sure i get the replies back!!!! Ohhhh i could burst im that excited yyyyyyeeeeeeeaaaaaaa
