- Wedding: May 2014
Hi all, FI and I are going to be married on Friday, May 23.
Which is going to be Winter here in Australia, and that’s something that scares me a little – I always pictured a Spring wedding.
Why May? FI won a wedding package competition, and the promoters and partners got to pick the date – beggars can’t be choosers, eh? 😛
Here are the things we know, or have sorted at the moment:
Ceremony and reception venue has been booked, we are just trying to set up a meeting with the co-ordinator to work out some details — colour schemes, centrepieces – all included with the venue, just need to find out what’s available so we know which direction to go with! menus, prices for any extra people – our prize is a reception for 50 adults, any extra, or kids, we pay for.
Photographer has been booked, and we have made contact about setting up a possible engagement shoot, but have come to realise that we probably cannot afford it.
Celebrant has been booked.
Ordered our Save The Date’s, they should be here in a week or two!
Groomsmen attire has been purchased, we just have to have a couple of them altered in due time, oh and once we’ve decided 100% on our colour scheme we’ll need to purchase the ties, also shoes and leather belts.
Purchased a few bits and pieces for the decor.
Spoken with the baker that we’ve had picked out since last year! Meeting with her on Tuesday afternoon to discuss some finer details.
Made enquiries for the DJ/MC.
Things to do really soon:
Dress shopping – I am so afraid of this. I’m not at all comfortable with my body. I’ve gained quite a bit of weight in the past year or so, and I did not want to be trying on dresses, let alone getting married looking like I curently do. FI tells me everyday how beautiful I am, though, so that’s a bonus.
What else should I be doing, that I haven’t yet?
