  • First sit down with H2B and talk abouth what your visions of the day are. Then work out what is most important to you.



    For budgeting, take into account any savings you have and then judge what you can save comfortably a month.



    You have venue sorted ...thats a biggy, next up probably your photographer, they tend to be booked well in advance.



    I would recommend going to a wedding fair and getting lots of info and sitting down and considering all your options...you have plenty of time.



    A wedding fair that is nearest you would be the Stirling Wedding Show September 13th at the Albert Halls in Stirling, admission £5.



    Hope that helps a little.



    YAYW is a goldmine of advice and all the girls here will help you as much as they can, just ask x

    It can be a bit overwhelming lol!



    Have you a made a list? I've done a table with costs what we've paid etc. It's alays worth getting someone to check your list as you always forget something! First time I did ours I forgot the wedding rings! Whoopsie!!!!



    Just relax and enjoy the planning and try not too get too stressed!

  • Hi there, and congratulations!

    We are 2011 too, and have booked our venue, and celebrant, and should soon have booked our caterer.

    The budget planner on here is pretty helpful, and apart from the very sensible advice that leokatsmom has already given you, I would advise deciding on what type of ceremony you would like, and getting your celebrant booked reasonably soon, getting a scrapbook, and tearing out pics from magazines, printing them off the internet-you will soon get a fair idea of what style you would like your day to be....and then it is legwork time! Spending a ridiculous amount of time online sourcing the things you like for the lowest prices! I have to say, I have had most of my best tips from this very forum-help is always available!

    Remember, it is not about the money you spend-it is how you spend it! Prioritise the things that matter the most, and adjust your budget to match (for example, I don't care about stationary, and are getting it for free from Vistaprint) but will perhaps spend more on the dress!yay!

    Enjoy, don't get too caught up in the little things and forget the big picture, oh and GET INSURANCE!!! (just in case....E&L are very good, and very reasonable!)

    Hi MrsCamyD2be and welcome. I know what you mean, it can all be a bit much but this site has been a god send. Everyone is in the same boat and we are all helping each other out.

    We're getting married in Aug 2011 and have everything booked as we want to have a relaxing year next year as we have lots of other things on. I agree with everyone else, get a list made. Just organise what has to be done, when and by who and just work your way through that. I would also recommend wedding insurance especially in the current climate because you just never know.



    I live in Perth and getting married at Dunkeld Cathedral and Atholl Palace, Pitlochry. If you need any help with anything just ask. We're going to the wedding show at the concert hall in October just for a nosey really and for flower inspiration.

  • Thanks guys already some useful things to think about, and i started a list but it seems to be never ending ha ha! i am getting married in the royal george hotel and keeping everything there, saving on money and cars etc. As i am from forfar and my fiance is from bankfoot in perth, so saves both families travelling far!! thank you so much !! x

  • not far at all!! image x
  • hlaukhlauk Posts: 11,128
    So you've got a wee while to wait for your wedding. At least you've got loads of time to plan it all! This site has given me loads of great ideas x
  • prominent5prominent5 Posts: 798
    I worked in Montrose for a while, very close. H2B's dad is from there but moved to Perth when he got married. x
  • hlaukhlauk Posts: 11,128
    Where did you work?? x
  • prominent5prominent5 Posts: 798
    Tesco. I worked in Forfar Tesco but was through there helping to train for a while. x
  • hlaukhlauk Posts: 11,128
    Ok! My Auntie is a kind of supervisor type there (i think) in Montrose that is x
  • prominent5prominent5 Posts: 798
    It was a great little shop, had everything. My H2B is a manager but he's in Dundee. I miss the days of being a student and working all the overtime known to man just to spend on drink at the weekend! x
  • hlaukhlauk Posts: 11,128
    Lol!!! When did you work there? I'm in like every other day. x
  • hlaukhlauk Posts: 11,128
    Sorry MrsCamyD2b for hijacking your thread! x
  • prominent5prominent5 Posts: 798
    I know sorry MrsCamyD2be xx



    Was a few years ago now. I've finished uni and have a big girl job now (sticking needles in people). x
  • hlaukhlauk Posts: 11,128
    Sounds fun! lol!! So where do you live? Soz I probably already read it x
  • prominent5prominent5 Posts: 798
    I live in Perth now. Very different to my little home town but it's nice. We are thinking of moving closer to Aberdeen as H2B's brother is in Cove and auntie etc in hill something or other up that way (can never remember what it's called). x
  • hlaukhlauk Posts: 11,128
    Perth's nice! I live in Marykirk now, we moved out here last Aug. It's nice & quiet & we have a garden for the wee one! x
  • prominent5prominent5 Posts: 798
    It's quiet where we live too. We are right on the river so don't have too many people around us. Plus it's great for the dog. I just can't get used to all the one way streets here. I think there is only 1 in Forfar! haha x
  • hlaukhlauk Posts: 11,128
    Lol!! Yeah we got lost in Perth trying to find Paco's, only to finally get there & discover it isn't open for lunch. Had to go to M&S instead! x
  • prominent5prominent5 Posts: 798
    Yeah I know, there are loads of places not open for lunc anymore or are shut all together. I just park in the multistorey now and walk. I can always find the expensive shops that I feel totally uncomfortable in though. x
  • hlaukhlauk Posts: 11,128
    Lol! I had a broken toe & hobbled along there, was really looking forward to it!! x
  • prominent5prominent5 Posts: 798
    It is nice. We go to the Bothy now for food. The specials are reasonable priced and food is great. Mmmm getting hungry now. x
  • hlaukhlauk Posts: 11,128
    So am I!! Don't know when h2b will get in, he's nipping to tesco for a few things. Better get me something nice! lol!! x
  • prominent5prominent5 Posts: 798
    my h2b is working late so it's just me for tea. Think I might get a sneaky take away and dispose of the evidence before he gets in at 11. x
  • hlaukhlauk Posts: 11,128
    Lol!! I would do the same!! x
  • prominent5prominent5 Posts: 798
    The weather is yukky and can't be bothered going out so now to decide what I want. Italian, Pizza, chinese or indian??? x
  • hlaukhlauk Posts: 11,128
    I'm coming to Perth!! We don't have Italian takeaway here! x
