  • Wedding: March 2014

Do you guys have your music planned?  We’ve chosen “All you need is love” (the Vitamin String Quartet version) for our processional and I want to use 1000 years (despite the twilight connection) for the signing – but recessional is so far eluding us.  Current shortlist is Rhythm of Love – Plain White T’s & Happy Together – The Turtles … found both by scouring the board but I’m getting sick of loud autoplay ads so I’m giving that a rest for now πŸ™

We have finalised our readings though πŸ™‚ Our first is 1 Corinthians 13, neither of us are very religious but FH’s family are.  This reading is super special to me as it was our school’s chapter so I learned it when I was five and turns out Future Mother-In-Law & Father-In-Law had it at their wedding too.  We wanted something to include those who are more religious so this was an easy choice.

Our second is

My date is March 4th!!!! eeeep!

 

I think im more excited about doing stuff at our destination wedding (Maui, Hawaii) since we are just having a simple ceremony on the beach but spending our honeymoon/familymoon there with our daughter with my parents close by.

 

It will be a trip of a life time, and i am so excited.

 

I have to be honest though, I cannot wait for my wedding date to be over with so i can EAT BREAD and RICE and PASTA etc etc @[email protected] on this cram diet session this month to try and lose some body fat so im skipping all those types of foods and its driving me crazy. lol!

@Andthepupmakes3:  The DJ was an old friend of my Fiance and said he would work at our wedding for free. They worked everything out last year… early in our engagement. Then when we had him over for dinner the other day, he basically said that the sold his equipment and couldn’t do it. Now I need to find and pay for someone (which wasn’t in our budget). Freaking out a little bit because Fiance won’t budge on what we are willing to pay and I’ve struck out on 3 DJs already being out of our budget.

@NovaGrey:  That stinks… Have you asked if your venue has audio rental options, like so you could do an iPod wedding? I am having a DJ strictly for the MC aspect of it, but some don’t really like that aspect!

@SouthernGirl:  Lucky you πŸ˜› I’m on a medication that’s made me gain weight – plus a few other medical conditions that have had the same effect and I’m fustrated but there’s nothing that I can do.  My gown doesn’t suit me as well as it did 6kg ago but there ain’t much I can do about it πŸ™

That RSVP situation sucks though.  We’re doing RSVPs by email (set up a special email for it) so it’s pretty easy to keep track of who’s replying πŸ˜›

Hi All!,

Gosh, I can’t believe it, I just checked my countdown app, 39 days to go!! Far out. I remember having a similar “moment” when I realised in January that our wedding was now THIS year, now it’s NEXT MONTH!

A bit of time pressure has been good for us. It has focussed our thinking and forced us to make some decisions. Fortunately all our RSVPs are in (we set our RSVP date well in advance of the wedding) so we know our final numbers.

We still have a few kinks in our day of timeline to iron out and I’m struggling with music selection, but am confident all will get done in time.

Is anyone else planning to do a speech?
