    be nice to catch up with each other all in one place.

    How exciting!!
    I need to save 657.74 before i can book a date
    as that's enough to pay the registry office in full as well as the reception venue in full with the deposits and little bits paid for as well. The future husband doesn't want to book anything until we have the money up together but these are the important bits to be paid for so I'm hoping as soon as I save that amount, he'd be open to book it.

    I'm trying to put everything i can into my wedding fund to get there sooner lmao .

    How is your wedding planning going?

    Hey everyone sorry i haven't been replying - I've been super busy lately with overtime and personal things! It's great to see you all!

    that's awesome , FutureGirl. You've got a bit of time to ensure everything is sorted.
    At least you have a date lol.

    Welcome aboard, Katapolt!
    How exciting! It's okay to be excited and want to plan everything straight away!
    I know i did.

    My updates
    * Purchased 4 "Bride tribe" purses for the adults in my bridal party = 16 (4.00 each)
    * managed to put another 200 away this morning as I got paid. Almost at the 1,000 mark!
    * The future husband hasn't shown much interest in wedding planning as in he just says what ever i want is fine to him but has now suggested to have a wedding planning meeting !! **Woop woop**
    * I'll wait until we have the entire budget saved as There isn't a rush and I'm hoping to save enough by may 2019 or sooner if i get my side hustle on.
    * Guest lists are hard to do !
    * Had casual conversation with my f.h about little things such as if we are going to have the reception as formal/semi-formal wear & both decided jeans & a tshirt will do 'cos we ourselves hate dressing up , having a mix of music and letting guests request songs and we're not having seating plans - it'll get complicated with my family...a lot of drama !
    * I can't decide who i want for my bridal party without leaving some out

    It's a choker to go with my dress.

    I almost purchased a tiara but they were all broken and flimsy

    Purchased some little bits for the wedding;
    Mr & Mrs / Just married photo prop set - 1.49 from B&M
    A pack of 20 balloons ; 10 that says mr & mrs , 10 that says happily ever after

    sorry to hear that, Katapolt.
    Hope something turns up for you soon.

    I spoke to my f.h and sorta...in a nice way...got him to agree on booking at date in October ready for next year. He's been showing more intrest in planinng a wedding now. maybe it's because time is closing in on us a little. he did say no to booking when i first suggested (back in april) because he thought it was a massive amount of time away wheras in october it'll be just less than a year (hopefully) we don't really care about a date but I may need to check with work about what dates are booked in aug-october next year .

    Hello, we're getting married on 25th May 2019.

    We're planning a laid-back, casual wedding in a restaurant but with 96 day guests and 120 at night *face palm* only 20 friends, the rest are family.

    We'd have loved to have a small wedding but we have massive families, 30 just with mums/dads, siblings and their kids! So we're doing everything possible to keep costs down where we can to account for such a large headcount.

    Looking forward to hearing all about everyone's plans!
    Total debt at LBM = 4861.03

    Congrats!

    That sounds awesome - but a lot of people!
    That's a good idea, do you have any plans of *how* you're going to keep costs down?
    I'm trying to do things cheaply although i've now upped my side of wedding saving to 3,000
    as I'd like to purchase a proper wedding dress. I have a blue dress that I paid 40 for,
    but it's more suited to the reception & also I'd like the experience of dress shopping and don't want to regret things.

    I also can't wait to see other people's plans.
    I got bits and pieces just not come together yet.

    I purchased 3 sets of 4 bowls, each for 1 to use for our candy bar
    and doughnut bunting for 1 to hang above the candy bar

    Hi Everyone! Sorry i dropped of the forum, had a hectic few months, and ive been writing a planning thread on You & your Wedding instead lol.

    We have a date! 5th April 2020! We also have a venue,caterer, photographer, DJ and i got a dress! Although im not convinced its "the one" and might keep looking (it was a cheap but impulsive purchase!)

    Although not 'officially' engaged we've booked our wedding for 12th October 2019

    We picked the date based on availability at the venue we wanted. They gave me 4 possible dates, and I instantly discounted 2 because they were H2B's friends birthdays and then H2B chose from the remaining 2 dates.

    Photographer is also booked, which I'm excited about, I've known I wanted this photographer for years, I'm super fussy as I used to be a wedding photographer.

    We just bought a house, only been in 2 weeks, so that and the above have taken almost all our money. Engagement ring is next on the list and then I'll start dress shopping

    Hello!

    I've been engaged for 6 days and beyond excited to be marrying the man of my dreams.

    The date is undecided but should be in 2020

    I'm loving the idea of a late afternoon/evening wedding because we'd rather not have all the usual formalities and it will reduce the cost and pressure so have something more informal.
