Who is more expensive? Your Florist or Your Photographer?
Photographer – my mum is a gardener, so she’s doing all the flower stuff πŸ™‚

Where are you storing all your wedding related items?
Don’t have many wedding related items yet, so the little we do have is a in a pile in the corner of the lounge room

One year and about 3 months..? 

What DIY Items have you done/will do for your wedding?
Not sure, still need to figure out what we’re actually doing at the wedding 

Who is walking you down the aisle?
Daddy dearest! 

Kids or No kids?
Definitely kids! I can’t imagine a wedding without all the kids there! 

Dancing or No Dancing?
There will definitely be dancing – my family dances just because they’ve finished cooking dinner. There’s no way I can stop them dancing at a wedding! 

What is your menu like?
Hopefully a buffet meal 

Wedding website or no?
Definitely not – most of my family can’t even turn on a computer 

Excited, Nervous or Stressed (or all 3) about the big day?
Stressed/pissed off 

Admit it: Have you been/are you a Bridezilla?
I would like to think I haven’t, but I’ve got some different ideas of what a wedding is compared to my fiance and his family, so it’s a pain trying to make my voice heard without coming off all crazy πŸ™ 

Where will you/do you plan to Honeymoon?
Thailand! 

Are you over or under-budget?
Fiance wants to have a $20,000 wedding, I want to spend less than $5,000, so it really depends on who you talk to. 

Are you a BIG budget or small budget bride (you decide what this means)?
See above 

Any pre-wedding events planned (bridal shower, bridal brunch, etc)?
Definitely not. It’s a struggle getting me to have a wedding as it is!

No which is strange, I have been really laid back and relaxed about it all. I’m trying to keep myself focused that everything else comes second and that our wedding is about our lil family and the love we have for eachother.

Who is more expensive? Your Florist or Your Photographer?

We’re not using a florist so the photographer [almost half our budget]

Where are you storing all your wedding related items?

Currently everything’s in a giant box, but I’m about to move so it wil take over our extra third bedroom

How many days/months/years left for your big day?

413 days [It was 532 to begin with] so about a year and two months

What DIY Items have you done/will do for your wedding?

Cake toopers, bouquets, bouttonieres, invites [all paper, actually], centerpieces, decorations for reception, guest book, favors, favor holders, any signs, makeup….uh…it’s easier to ask what I’m NOT DIYing.

Who is walking you down the aisle?

My daughter

Kids or No kids?

Definitely kids

Dancing or No Dancing?

TONS of dancing

What is your menu like?

We don’t have a set menu yet, but it’s going to be vegetarian

Wedding website or no?

It’s almost finished πŸ™‚

Excited, Nervous or Stressed (or all 3) about the big day?

Right now mostly stressed, but usually excited

Admit it: Have you been/are you a Bridezilla?

Not yet, but I can feel that I’ll have to be one for a few situations in the future [hopefully not though]

Where will you/do you plan to Honeymoon?

We’re not sure. It’s looking like Mexico since we keep seeing Groupons for all inclusive resorts there. We can’t afford to go places we’d like [Italy, Greece, Ireland, France, etc.]

Are you over or under-budget?

Well, I’ve mapped out how much we can spend for each type of thing, and hopefully we’ll stick to it. So far we’re where we should be. Ask me again in a year.

Are you a BIG budget or small budget bride (you decide what this means)?

I think average [among my friends anyway]

Any pre-wedding events planned (bridal shower, bridal brunch, etc)?

None yet, but it’s way too far in advance. I’m sure I’ll have a shower and a bachelorette party at some point.

  • Wedding: August 2014

Who is more expensive? Your Florist or Your Photographer?

The Photographer

Where are you storing all your wedding related items?

The spare bedroom 

How many days/months/years left for your big day?

377 ish, unless we move it back to April 2014 like we’ve been thinking…

What DIY Items have you done/will do for your wedding?

Centerpieces, some decorations, for our card box I’m painting an old birdcage, my shoes, a table with notes or memories of our loved ones who have passed…I made my invitations but I do that for a living so I don’t think that really counts…I can’t think of anything else but I know there’s more…

Who is walking you down the aisle?

My Step father

Kids or No kids?

No kids except for a special select few

Dancing or No Dancing?

TONS of dancing

What is your menu like?

Persian/Italian/Amazing

Wedding website or no?

It’s almost finished!

Excited, Nervous or Stressed (or all 3) about the big day?

Stressed right now

Admit it: Have you been/are you a Bridezilla?

I can feel it coming…but no major episodes yet!

Where will you/do you plan to Honeymoon?

Europe. Italy, Barcelona, Paris, London, Austria, etc.

Are you over or under-budget?

Initially I thought a wedding for 300 wouldn’t cost more then $10,000, and that that would be splurging. I was very very wrong after I started doing some research. So I am way way way over our original, “budget” but since we really don’t have a specific budget, I guess we are doing pretty good!

Are you a BIG budget or small budget bride (you decide what this means)?

I think Average-ish to big budget, depending on who you ask.

Any pre-wedding events planned (bridal shower, bridal brunch, etc)?

All of the above but nothing has been planned yet.

  • Wedding: November 2012

Who is more expensive? Your Florist or Your Photographer? 

Photographer!

Where are you storing all your wedding related items?

In my spare bedroom.

How many days/months/years left for your big day? 

97 days!

What DIY Items have you done/will do for your wedding?
Basically the entire wedding is DIY when speaking of decorations & I can happily say everything is DONE except the programs! Invitations, centerpieces (180 pomanders!), stage decor, aisle runner, welcome sign, ring bearer sign, cake stand… I’m sure I’m missing something.

Who is walking you down the aisle?
My dad!

Kids or No kids?
Kids!

Dancing or No Dancing?
DANCING! & lots of it!

What is your menu like?
It’s a seated dinner where everyone will get the same thing- chicken, steak, potatoes, veggies, pasta. I wanted a seated dinner without the craziness of 350-400 guests, a seating chart and dinner choices. This way, everyone gets a seated dinner, A LOT of food, and I avoid the buffet I didn’t want! Luckily our venue is the same price for buffet vs. seated dinner.

Wedding website or no?
Nope.

Excited, Nervous or Stressed (or all 3) about the big day?
Excited and stressed… I don’t have a wedding planner or day of coordinator, so it makes me stressed out to think about it running smoothly. Mostly excited though!

Admit it: Have you been/are you a Bridezilla?
No- I am crazy about texting my mom or MOH about every single idea I have, but I’ve not been a slave driver or mean… just wedding-obsessed. I’ve calmed down a lot over the past couple of months πŸ™‚

Where will you/do you plan to Honeymoon?
We are going to Jamaica!

Are you over or under-budget?
We never set a budget. My dad is paying for the venue, my mom is helping with that and purchased my dress, his parents are paying for the alcohol, and I’ve literally spent every paycheck for the past 10 months on everything I wanted otherwise. I DO NOT, nor will I ever, want to add up what I’ve spent. As long as theres no charges on my credit card once everything is said and done, and there shouldn’t be, I’ll be estatic!

Are you a BIG budget or small budget bride (you decide what this means)?
I’d say average… according to any average wedding cost I’ve seen. Probably spent more than I’d like to know… but, I only get to do this once.

Any pre-wedding events planned (bridal shower, bridal brunch, etc)? Bridal shower, bachelorette party… the norm.
