Hi everyone! (Sorry posted this on the old board before I knew this one existed. Moving it here!)

Am I the only person who hates Fridays?

Has anyone done any exciting wedding-related things? Yesterday I ordered what I hope will be my shoes online, I’ll just have to see if they fit when they arrive. Have never bought shoes online before, mostly because I never fit into any shoes in shops. Hopefully I get lucky.

I also just ordered some sample paper for my invitations to check which colours go together best. My little bro and I are going to make the invitations, he is a graphic designer and illustrator so I hope we can make them awesome!

I just made a mock-up in Word of what I think we will make, just using cut and paste of the paper swatches that were online. I am talented like that. I think they look ok but I don’t know!

Other than that I’m still just waiting for our venue to confirm we’re actually allowed to use it (it’s a holiday house so there is a big complicated process to go through). If they say no we are totally screwed! And just waiting for my earrings, necklace and (second) ring to arrive!

I totally getting stuff done (finally)! Only 5 months and 3 days (holy crap!) to go!

@choolove: I hate shoes and I hate Fridays. What sort of freak am I?

With 6 months to go? I had nothing booked by then so who knows!

The only vendors I’m using are venue, photographer, caterer, celebrant, and hair and makeup. And MAYBE video. All the rest (cars, flowers, cakes, music) will be DIY. (Am I forgetting any?) As long as you have booked the major ones and are in communication with the rest that you’ll be using, I’m sure you’ll be fine.

Morning! Had a busy day so far, I manage a team of 13 and there is never a dull day Yell

I still need to organise flowers and rings, and we have to pick out the flavour and design of our cake. I have started to think about honeymoons and invitations and it’s just too hard! I don’t know whether to have a look at Etsy for pdf invitations or use some place like Vistaprint?

 Fuck! I just read Pohget’s line that she has 5 months and 3 days – that means i have 5 months and 2 days!

@choolove: Oh yeah, dur, I was just talking about invitations!

I hate shoes because my feet are dumb, and I hate Fridays because I work every single weekend.

And I hate smelly tradies. Not entirely related, but I once had a guy come to fix my computer. He went to the bathroom, DID NOT wash his hands, and then went back and continued fixing my computer. Gross. You better believe, I sanitised the crap outta it as soon as he was gone.

@Sesame Snap: Wow, I didn’t realise we were so close in dates! Don’t stress! We don’t even have a venue for sure yet! We’ll be fine though, and you’ll be fine too!

I’m not sure if we’ll be having a honeymoon. We were going to be going travelling straight after but now we are too poor. I feel like any honeymoon we do have will just be taking money away from our other trip, but I’m also worried that it won’t happen at all and then we’ll have nothing.

Where are you thinking about for your honeymoon?

@choolove: Were the invitations too thin? That seems to be what some people don’t like about them.
