Hi girls, Just wondering is there any may 2008 brides out there. What I really want to know is what preparation work have yee done. when myself and my h2b got engaged first I did alot of preparation work, ie wedding venue, church, priest, band, wedding dress. and months have passed and I have done nothing. Should I be doing more because i feel that the wedding will creep up on us very fast and I really dont want to leave everything to the last minute. Looking foward to hearing from all you may 2008 brides :o)ll :o)ll

Hi Deeh, yes i've heard of The Best Men they are really good. You should give them a call and see if they are doing any showcase gigs so that you can check them out for yourself.

Hi ladies, I'm up 2nd May and thought I was nice and organised til I saw this thread! We've got the Church, Hotel, Band, DJ and Photographer booked. My dress and BMs dresses are picked out and will be ordered by Sept. The next big thing I want to do is Church music and the guest list coz we want to send save-the-date cards soon. (lots of guests from abroad) Havent even thought about the honeymoon yet! We're planning the wedding from Germany so everything has to be coordinated with trips home which makes it all a bit sporadic! Good call starting this thread!
