- Wedding: October 2013
Hello fellow October Brides!
Im Ally and in Australia and have been engaged since Feb 2012.
We originally had planned to have our wedding on March 2nd this year but decided to put it back till next year and this year focus on having a little brother or sister for our little girl….. then unfrotunatley we found out that my gorgeous mum has inoperable and incurable lung cancer…. My Dad passed away just 6 year’s ago from liver cancer and it was going to be hard enough for my not to have my Dad walk me down the aisle, the idea of my Mum not being there too was just not going to happen so with my Mum’s blessing that it wouldnt upset her further we have made the wedding 26th October. I love that time of year and to be honest was always my preferred month to get married 🙂
I THINK I have most things sorted, we have our venue, which luckily is not something we had to hire out, our ceremony is by the river bank about 100metres from my fiances mum’s property and the reception will be held in a marquee on the property.
So far we have booked the marquee, tables, chairs, celebrant, caterer and photographer. I have had the moment of PANIC the last couple of weeks when I thought I could order my dress in may and was told by a couple of bridal shops that I should have ordered it yesterday! I am a plus size bride (still hoping to drop more weight before wecdding) and was not happy at all about dress shopping but I have come across some styles that I like and will be heading to Sydney (we live about 5 hours from the city where there a lot more options for dresses) in about 4 weeks to lock in my dress and the bridesmaids… I have EVERYTHING crossed that it won’t be too late! The theme we are going for is rustic/vintage so I believe, I have known what I wanted for a while and have been a lurker on these boards since we got engaged.
Anyway that’s a little about me and I look forward to hearing about all the other October weddings!
