- Wedding: April 2013
Hi April 2013 bees
So glad I found this area! I am lacking motivation and need to know if I am missing something. We originally planned a church wedding and picked the reception venue (a hall). Now we have completely back tracked and gone back to our original idea of getting married outdoors and we are even changing reception venue! Why? Well firstly disappointment in our pastor as he kept putting off a meeting to discuss the ceremony. At first I was ok with this as he and his wife went on long service leave. But now I am thinking that he is not showing enough interest and therefore not the right choice. We have asked another celebrant who we both know and always talked about him marrying us anyway so now we feel comfortable. So we are narrowing down the reception venue and have short listed three. We have gone this way as they all provide the catering and wait staff etc and will take care of the ‘hosting’ as it was becoming to hard to deal with caterers and hire companies etc.
My colour theme is cream, dusky pink and earthy browns
So…I have picked my dress and have it now!
Booked the photographer, organised the flowers and bouquets and centrepieces (great bridal package), organised the makeup artist and hairdresser.
Wedding cake organised
Pretty much organised the bridesmaids dresses, ordered personalised gold plated necklaces as a gift and for them to wear on the day.
Ordered cute bags with ‘bridesmaids’ written on them and plan to purchase a set of dressing gowns for when we get ready and slippers. I was also going to put together a bridesmaid emergency kit and present it to them.
Picked the design for the wedding invites (a lovely friend organised our engagement invites and save the dates!) She is a mad scrapbooker and insisted lol
Picked our celebrant – yay!
Kinda organised a candy bar for the wedding favours.
Roughly picked my prelude music, processional, signing the wedding certificate music and reception music.
Picked a poem to be read during the ceremony
Picked our first dance music
So what do I do now?
Lose weight and get toned! (I have lost 1.1kg last weigh in) Bought Aeros Pilates machine and yoga classes and have a treadmill, elliptical and 2 dogs! No excuse
Hair diamontes for my hair (I am wearing a veil but will remove it after the mock cake cutting and the mock first dance) and pearl hair pins for the bridesmaids
transport for the day
Groom – to organise suits, shoes etc
Dancing lessons for the bridal waltz
honeymoon – we are thinking Bangkok and phuket
What are some suggestions as I am proving not to be as good at this as I thought!
Sorry if this post was too long!
