Fiance won us our wedding budget!!!!!!!!!

We got engaged at christmas and we were planning to get married summer 2012. In reality we knew this would never happen as we can't really afford to save our budget of £15000. My fiance had the crazy idea to apply for game shows which i was VERY embarrassed about and asked him not to. He went for an audition for one and was contacted to tell him he was on and it all happened so fast! He happens to be very clever and it was a quiz show.... and he won us our wedding budget! We only need to save a little bit more! And we can get married next year! So happy and very proud but now we don't have much time to plan!!

    I'm not supposed to say anything about it because it hasn't aired yet and they can forfeit your prize if you give it away. But it's aired on the 24th June and he talks bout winning money to get married. Maybe I can give more details on the day!

    Congratulations!!! And don't panic at all. We only got engaged at the end of August and we get married in June. image

    I've made all my own stationery, got all the little finishing touches - had enough time for all of it and not so much time that I change my mind about decisions already made. A wedding next year is easily do-able. Enjoy the planning! image
  • Brilliant news! How wonderful to be able to enjoy the planning stages without having to save. I'm so thrilled for you.

    Congratulations and happy planningimage

    CONGRATULATIONS! A very worthy cause indeed - well done your fianc???? image

    We need to save a similar sum, so I was very pleased to win some money last December - not the full whack but a decent percentage which has meant we can put all our deposits down and start putting our plans into action, yay!

  • Hello!

    My name is Ieva and I am an intern at Brit Asia TV. We have a new topic for a show in our mind, so I thought maybe you could help me...

    The new topic is about weddings - do you really need to spend so much? (British weddings, for example, vs. Asian weddings). I am contacting regarding

    Would you and your son-to-be-husband would like to participate in ANY way - consultants or to be interviewed? Please, let me know, also if there is something/someone you could help me with... My e-mail is: [email protected]

    Thank you sooo much! image
