RedGreenRouge, you can't have possibly left it to late you've got loads of time left, i basically did everything in the last six months, the night before the wedding i was making bloody home made confetti , and what was DH doing, having a pint in the pub!!
Our wedding is May 2013. Most of it is pretty decided/booked/chosen. I can tell you about dress, photography, venue, food, readings, ceremony, music, decorations, colours, stationery, hair, make-up, bridal party outfits, cinematography, it's just coming out of my ears and I have hardly any outlet to purge myself of it all. <Breathe>
I'm currently getting pissed off over bands who are crap at communicating, taking over from hairdressers at the top of my crappest-supplier hitlist.
Cookie I LOVE your bouquet. I'm having flashes of blue (actually, aqua in mine)
I can't wait to pick all your brains and hear about everyones ideas. Have I gushed enough in this post?
AKissIsNotAContract - hey what can i say, great minds think alike my father in law read that a the wedding, the readings got mixed up my fault and he got that one slightly but he enjoyed reading it so hey ho!!
Erm i have to say i have no idea, my original theme was eucalyptus but nothing comes in that colour, so we switched to navy and then used eucalyptus where we could, we ended up with black and white dresses for the bridesmaid so the whole colour thing went out the window and we just went with whatever looked good.
The puppy is now asleep so I can leave the laptop and go and sit down in the other room. Looking forward to catching up on this thread again though.
While we're on the topic of readings, I've asked my MOH to do Oh The Places You'll Go, which is really more of a sentiment from me to DP, but it would look silly if the bride stood up and did a reading I think. It's a surprise to him though, I've told him it's something from me to him...
vivipru I wanted Oh The Places We'll Go but we couldn't think of anyone who could pull it off! We had Secrets of a Good Marriage and Indian Wedding Blessing plus a biblical one for our chapel blessing. I found choosing readings pretty tricky and we really only finalised it last minute! cookielove agree, your flowers are lovely. I went for the traditional - diferent shades of roses with lots of greenery.
Can I please join? I'm getting married in July, so far have the venue, the dress and the registrar arranged and that's erm about it. Lots to do! Have been hitting the wedding fayres today... Bit shit aren't they really?
Generic photographer Rail of not-really-your-thing dresses Man with sparkly curtain Kitchen-table-mummy-entrepreneur with her homemade tat stationery. Insincere hotel staff handing out drinks and carrier bags Lovely cake though!
No venue yet. We aren't quite sure what we're looking for: we keep finding gorgeous places but then realising they aren't registered for civil partnerships. The one place we loved and is registered has terrible reviews for weddings.
