10 Months Today
Hello fellow Sept 14 brides.
10 Months today I'll be feeling really nervous & excited at the same time.
We are getting married at 12.30pm Saturday 27th September 2014.
We got engaged on Christmas Day 2012 and started looking at venues early Jan. I always knew I wanted the big fairytale wedding, it's starting off at my local church followed by a reception at Carlton Towers. Cadbury's Purple is my colour scheme - it's becoming quite popular now but it's my favourite colour and have always wanted it, so sticking with it. I have 6 bridesmaids - yes 6 !!! I found it really hard to choose between family & friends but I think it will look good in the photos and plus its an even number
How is everyone getting on with their planning? We have been quite organised (compared to come of my friends who have got married recently) Our plan was to try and get as much done this year as possible so that next year is simply paying final bills, sending invites and doing seating plans.
We have the following :- church, venue, cake, favours, DJ, photographer, string quartet, videographer, suits, bridesmaid gifts, evening catering, Car, wine & champagne (as doing corkage) sweet table (my mums taken this task on), we've chosen our invites (but still too early to have them made up) and I have my veil, shoes tiara and i'm being measured for my dress this Saurday (30th Nov), and I have just recieved confirmation this morning that the hair & makeup artisit I want is free on our day.
I found my dress to be the hardest task of all - I alway knew i'd be picky !!!
Things we are yet to do are Flowers, centre pieces, chair covers, wedding rings, gifts for remaining bridal party, bridesmaid dresses & hair, and booking the honeymoon.
We wanted to make our honeymoon a really one off holiday & go somewhere we always wanted to go but once children arrive we'll never get to type thing - So we have chosen to go to Australia - it's too early to book flights for this yet so I think this will be a task for us in the new year.
I also need to sort our my hen night / weekend - I have no idea where to go / what to do yet. Has anyone one got theirs sorted yet?
Well I think that it my wedding in a nutshell.
Happy Planning everyone x
