MY WEDDING IS IN 2 AND A HALF MONTHS!!!
It honest to god only feels like we got engaged yesterday. How on earth did it come so quick??

Sorry. I needed a place to squeal, be excited without my Facebook friends gojng "Le sigh. We know. "

Anyone else getting married this year? How's the planning going?

We pretty much have everything planned now, paid for etc, except cars. Where I'm getting married, people won't see me arrive so I assured my dad that id be more than happy arriving in my own car, or even a mini bus with all the girls! Haha.

Wee hee!!

Aww I know how you feel, getting married is so freakin' exciting (I did it in 2012).
So tell us:

Where are you going on your honeymoon? What are your colours?
What does your dress look like? What is on the menu? Is it a traditional wedding? What kind of flowers?

Spill it!

Awh thank you for being so lovely!

Well, I can tell you...

Where are you going on your honeymoon? We are actually not going on one right away! I can't get any time off work, but we're spending the 3 days after up north just relaxing by a pool and going swimming with dolphins! In June/July however we are off on a 3.5 week trip to the US and Thailand!! :)

What are your colours? Think lots of ivory, off-white, pearl, dusty pink, greys, lace etc.

What does your dress look like? I adore my dress. I've never really been a big girly girl, so I actually dreaded dress shopping...plus, I have a pretty distorted image of myself, I tend to think I'm a lot bigger than I actually am. 3 dresses in, I tried on this beautiful ivory and oyster lace fit'n'flare dress, strapless gown and fell in love! It will have a dusty pink sash around my waist with some pearls and matching lace included in there.
What is on the menu? No idea yet! We are actually doing a tasting this evening! But it'll be fairly traditional, alternate menu. Probably a beef and a chicken, with a pasta or lamb entree. I know the dessert is wedding cake (white chocolate with berry) and mini cookies & cream cheesecakes! Yes, I love food!
Is it a traditional wedding? Not overly traditional, but not off-beat either. Not a religious ceremony, but it'll be a very lovey one, with a lot of personal touches. We have a really cool wedding program too, which I'll post photos of after the day!
What kind of flowers? Peonies, Dusty Millar, Roses in pinks, creams. Very English Garden looking.

I am taking suggestions for some creative ideas for the boys button holes!

I'm getting married in October! 8 and a half months to go. We got engaged back in July 2012 so it feels like we have been engaged forever.

It's all so exciting! We have a special surprise planned for our wedding program which was all designed today and looks awesome! Just 60 days to go, exactly! I am partway through my vows and I'm starting to get stuck though. I'm not a words person... Most people know me, I'm quite visual. I like to show my feelings through actions or what not. Get me to do a PowerPoint display and I'll own it. Ask me to talk about it? No chance. Words just don't come out right.

He on the other hand is brilliant with words. Haha. Any tips?

Poo, when I had to write my own vows, I sat in front of my computer with a glass of wine, and I started looking through about 2500 old photos of us over the past four years. Memories of such amazing times came flooding back and the words just flowed. Maybe try something like that. My vows were so sentimental and mushy, with a few jokes thrown in. His were simple and he wrote a cute little poem. As long as it comes from the heart, that is all that matters.

YOU ARE GETTING SOOOOOO CLOSE!!!!

How is everything shaping up???

So, my MOH and bridesmaids organized a surprise Hens for me! (Surprise as in they planned everything... All I knew about was the date! I didn't even know who was coming, haha). A few brief photos, including gorgeous former DDN-we Tierney! We did a wine tour during the day, then dinner by the beach that night. It was SO relaxing, and so very me. No strippers, no penis straws, no fluff. Relaxing, a lot of laughs, a lot of wine and gorgeous scenery. It was perfect!! 41 days to go until the wedding now! The seating chart is the only thing left to do, along with the wedding program! Hair trial in a fortnight a time, make up trial late next week, and my spray tan trial last week went great! So happy!!

Yay yay OMG I am so excited for you. I was sick in bed with a killer hangover all day yesterday and so seeing all the pictures make their way onto my newsfeed made an average afternoon just absolutely lovely.

Congratulations.
