It's just over six months until our wedding! Six months. I cannot believe how fast the time has gone. When I think forward to our big day, I'm excited that we've got so many of our friends involved in making it special.
Right now I've kicked into planning mode. I'm so glad that I've done a lot of the big ticket items already (savings account, venue, dress, shoes, suit, cake, photographer, celebrant, DJ, MC, florist), and now we're just focusing on the smaller details. I feel lucky to be an event planner in my day job, because I feel seriously organised. I'm hoping to have the whole thing done by December. Is that too crazy?!
As I wandered through a wedding dress store yesterday, I thought about how it was 15 months ago since I bought my dress. I'm really glad I bought it then, because walking through those stores just did not inspire me. The wedding is becoming more DIY as my eyes glaze over at how wedding paraphanelia is both too boring and blingy for my taste. I want unique and colourful and fun. I also don't want to buy anything that I won't wear or use after the wedding day (I might even wear my dress again!). Lucky Camille is one of my bridesmaids and she's ready to get crafty. Paper invitations, a bag, bouquet and jewellery are on my to-do list for the next month. And a big trawl through Etsy of course.
I'd love some advice on good hairdressers in Melbourne. Let me know your tips.
Also, I've been wondering how I can get you, my blog readers involved in the day? You've been so lovely and supportive, so I'd love to 'have you there' to celebrate with me. Have you got any ideas?
Tell me your best wedding tip!
