No I've never seen bridezillas either but I'm completely addicted to DTTB, predictable narrative arc and all.
AKiss I've found it hard to get suppliers to fully engage with me so early in the planning. I've felt a bit how people have seemed to be so take-or-leave. Did you order your BM dresses? Did you go for FH&FH in the end?
NumTum7 - thank you. I adore the classic look you describe for your flowers, i only managed to squeeze a bit of pink in because of the baby bridesmaids shoes, other wise i would have alot more of it in mine, DP hates pink!!
rough course you can show us the venue!!! In fact I insist you do! Are you sure about the videographer? I have been backwards and forwards over it, it seems so expensive for something that feels like such a non-essential, but so many people say it's the one thing they regret not having/the one thing they're so glad they stretched to.
Those companies are a wee bit far away for me! Love the 8mm films, Sugar8 does really beautiful films (her own wedding is on their vimeo page) but it's £500 for a 3 min film.... if we come into any money, I know where it'll be going
We are getting married in March 2014, we have most things booked apart from photographer as I cant find anything below a grand. I have my dress. Went to the national wedding show 2 weeks ago and wow there were so many bridezillas! Also paid a deposit for a photo booth and they said they had bookings as far as summer 2016! They only reason I am sorting it so early is we want a baby before we get married and I don't want to be freaking out trying to plan a weddig with toddler and baby in tow.
memphis we've booked a photobooth too, they're amazing, wind machine and everything!
Re photographers, we got ours through a wedding show - a package with £250 knocked off, taking it under £1k, including an album. Lots of the packages we saw were around the £1k mark and you only got a CD of images. Really pleased with what we got, love the company's work
Pru yes it's beautiful, it's the Campsie hills. The hill you can see in that photo is the sleeping giant's head!
I know, it's set to song lengths I think. They are gorgeous videos though...
I think they've always been a popular option, RGR, but over the last few years there's been a trend away from the cheesy, wobbly traditional wedding video towards a cinematic, narrative driven style of film which appeals to the kind of person who might not have ordinarily chosen to have a standard video.
The last wedding I went to I got my bum out in the photobooth. I suggest you breathalyse people before you let them in.
I've not ordered my BM dresses as one of my brideslaves is pregnant but I am going for Seafoam on forherandforhim.
Whereabouts in the country are you red? The place we are getting married is owned by a gay couple and is licensed for both. I naively assumed all venues that do civil weddings would do civil partnerships too.
RGR that's not ignorant at all. I think one could plan it in a week if one were so inclined. Whoever's telling you you're ridiculous ought to wind their neck in.
AKiss how inconsiderate of her!!! How old will her baby be at your wedding? Is she still happily full steam ahead with being a bridesmaid? What's your kids/babes-in-arms policy?
I just found out my sister is expecting #2 a month before our wedding. She thought I might be put out (as if?!) but if anything I'm thrilled that it will be the first time in about a year she (and I) will be having a drink and unpasturised cheese
