Our Wedding Date!!
Change of plans!
Soooo My FH and I went out for lunch today, Our work rosters suck and it means we only see eachother once a week if that. And it's usually for either dinner or lunch. So we never get real time together.
Today we were discussing our wedding and all the drama thats going on (i'll get into that another day) and we were talking about eloping, as great as it sounds it isn't a good idea for us. SOOOOOOOOOO We bumped up our wedding by 4 months! And our new day is the
16th of July 2011!!!!
Amazingly all our vendors are completely fine with it, it's perfect :D :D
We bought these yesterday :D SO CUTE :D
Valentines Day :D
Our valentines day.
Andrew and I are both managers for the same company which means we get different hours to each other every week so we rarely get to see each other :( We had our valentines day a day early.
We had a "double date" with my room mate and her boyfriend at our house. Mini (my roommate) And I made a roast and decorated the house.
We had cut every heart and punched holes in the top and strung them across the house :D It looked awesome :D
Then the boys took us to a gelato bar in the city. Mmmm Kindersurprise ice cream :D
Just wondering what you all think about ribbon backdrops?
I am wanting a backdrop for the bridal party but not keen on the traditional tulle and fairy lights and the price tag that goes with it.
First visit to the seamstress!! and CAKE!
So Today was my first visit to our seamstress. I went with my mum, put on my dress and she pinned it all up. It looks SOOOO AMAZING!!
I cried when She was done and put my veil on. AHH I cannot wait until it's all done :D
The lady was sooo lovely, bit eccentric but still an amazing seamstress (She even convinced my mum to let me get padding in my top yeow!!)
Anyways so my next appointment is the 23rd of March :D I cannot wait!
This arvo we are going to do taste testing for our cake :D
We have decided on a 3 tier square cake with details to match my dress and our cake topper (see picture attached). But we won't get to see the finished product until our wedding day :D (Saves 15%!!)
Also today we bought our toasting glasses :D Has bride and groom written on them with two hearts (our theme) and came with a matching photo frame :D It was $80 but they gave it to us for $60 because it didn't have all the packaging :D BARGAIN!
Ask a Question
DJ vs Ipod
So i've been on graveyard shifts the past few nights at work so haven't really been able to do much in the way of "planning". But I did get a chance to think about music... alot!
My question to all of you is.
1. Did you have a DJ or other form of music for your reception
FH wants an incredibly expensive DJ to play songs that I have on my Ipod? It seems silly to me when we could just play that for free? The hall we have hired has all the equipment to plug an Ipod/Iphone/MP3 player in and it plays throughout the hall.
Ask a Question
November 2011 Brides??
Wondering if there are any other November 2011 Brides?
As all our fellow WBC ladies get married I feel like I have no one left still waiting for their day but i'm sure there are other girls out there getting married in November :D
We are getting married on the 20th of November!!
Today we got an awesome delivery from the postoffice :D
My mum ordered our names as wooden cutouts. They are huge (that's a large chest of drawers behind them) and it's free standing. It's beautiful. We are going to paint them, Not sure what colour yet :D
We paid a few deposits today :D One of which was our PHOTOBOOTH!
I adore photobooths! I'm so excited!!!!!!!
(can you tell!)
It's from getaphotobooth.com.au
