To all the fellow August 24th 2013 brides, 11 months to go ladies
How exciting! Hows the planning going?
Yay Plans are coming along slowly, I haven't long found this site and feel so behind in comparsion to a lot of people! I've got my main bits sorted,church, reception venue, dress, flower girl dresses and a few other bits. What have you both done so far? x
I know this site makes you feel like your slacking! lol So far we've sorted:- venue (both at some place)- cake - florist- videographer- going back to dress shop thursday to try on dress so could have that by end of week! and been looking on internet tonight and might have found a photographer.oooh who is your dress?
Some people on here are soo driven, I'm lazy, keep hoping someone is going to come and plan it all for me My dress is Sincerity 3664, its everything I said i didnt want when i went into the shop, and I didnt even choose it to try on, my Mam sneaked it in! Have you got any dresses is mind? x
Lovely dresses ladies!
So far we have booked the venue, DJ, Rooms for night before (not having wedding cars),spoken to florist and got a quote (family member!), dress (its in and all paid for, fitting in may!), veil, few bits and bobs bought, photographer. Oh and we have given notice to registrar.
Now looking into cake, invites (did get some but have changed my mind!), music for ceremony and BM dresses..
That dress is lovely! Is that you in it?
I'm trying not to book things that I'm going to change my mind on. Booked a VW camper van as a wedding car, got slightly carried away at the first wedding fayre I went to and now I don't like it ahh I'm south too, well wales...sorry
MrsBeau2B sounds like you've done quite a lot, what dress have you got?x
Those photos look amazing! We are having a friend as a photographer, he started out properly last year and is doing a full day with 3 photographers and a photobooth for the night for £500. I'm hoping being new to it he'll be overeagar.. hopefully! Seen stalking people on facebook whos weddings hes done this summer to see their pics
I think you should def try bigger with the dress x
I think we get some kind of photobook thing with it for our favourites and then I dont know with the rest, think htb is out with him on friday so I'll make sure he asks for details, wasn't really interested when we booked because I hate photos! I am looking forward to the photobooth though, bit of a poser when drunk Are you having any bridesmaids? think it's them stressing me out more than any other planning x
Oh can you imagine that happening so close to the wedding! good news for you for all the deposits and stuff! am having my two sisters and my best friend. My friend is really opinionated which does my head in and my youngest sister i have told she isn't going to be a bridesmaid if she carries on playing up, she caused a massive argument with my other sister in the middle of their dress fitting x
This dessy one was the one I loved from the start but in the short version.
When we went to try it on though it looked terrible, dont know if it was because it had been tried on so many times. They tried on this one too which i think i prefer now and it made them all look smaller than the Dessy one and they are £50 cheaper.
Personally I dont like them that much but the girls liked it. I dont know whether to change my colour from coral to peach either, sigh
This is a pic of my sisters in them, dont know why its stretched x
Ladies your dresses are lovely! And the BM's are lovely too - im planning to visit some dessy suppliers soon with my ladies!
My dress is by dememtrios - i have searched high and low for a pic of a real bride in it and there are none! Only thing i could find was a pic on a for sale site but it def doesnt show it at its best!
Dress pics below - might take them down after a while as i'm paranoid about anyone i know seeing it! It needs taking in massively at the top, and it will be altered from the deep sweetheart as per the second pic. Bolero will be made into cap sleeves and my veil is being altered to have more of a gather!
Its really lovely Ive shown loads of poeple my dress, i can't help myself Do you know what bridesmaid dresses your going to get? x
No not yet, am going to let the girls choose! Im having two bridesmaids so im hoping they can find something they both like.
Ahhh your dress is so lovely! Are you going to go for it? I also steered away from the massive dresses as i want to be able to move about easily and it not keep getting in the way! I also felt a bit drowned in some of them!
As for the one shoulder BM dress, i really like it - im pretty much going to let my girls choose, but i'd be happy with a dress like that!
Oh, and here is my dress again - will leave it on a bit longer!
Nicola Darcy - your dress is AMAZE, is it a JA one? please can you tell me what number? x
Its in and paid in full! Ordered in Feb!
Its way too big at the top and needs a bit of altering on the body too, but is the perfect length so alterations shouldnt be too much!
I think we are going to do charity pins - OH and i both have family members affected by cancer so its a good choice for us!
Yours sound really fun!
