The challenge is on.
We are planning on doing this in 6 weeks. I find it to be fun and kind of crazy and totally us to try and pull it off. We will have all paperwork filed in Australia in a weeks time. We will have 24 hours in Adelaide before boarding a boat for a week of great whitel shark diving.
I need to build a checklist, purchase a dress, and the other fun accessories that go with.
I don’t care what he wears.
We need to find a marriage celebrant and location in Adelaide.
I know everyone is busy planning, but could you possibly mention a planning guide you might be using?
Also, we are not big on traditions but we do want to use a Christian Celebrant and they seem hard to come by in SA, is there a reason for that?

Oh, and I meeting with a jeweler tomorrow to design our wedding bands, which is a little scary because he’s in Kuwait and won’t see it until "the day".

oh man…i wish i had my timeline of hwat i did. you are very brave for doing it all in 6 weeks! My mom got married in 4 though. Pick a venue that takes care of most of it or you’ll drive yourself nutso.
My mom got married in Vegas and just picked a package. All they had to do was dress themselves and show up!

I will print the list and at least we’ll have something to go with.
I am happy that I don’t have months to plan or else I’d go nuts.
Finding a Christian Celebrant is going to be a bit of a challenge…this is a no budge issue for the FH.
Of course I have thought of this day, but I can’t say I have ever had a plan of how it should go. So maybe not having those kind of expectations will make it easier.

I am a Christian celebrant in another state. If you would like to contact me off-line I can probably find you some Christian celebrants in Adelaide. NB: Your "Notice of Intended Marriage" MUST be lodged with an authorised celebrant one month and one day prior to your wedding date.
