Hey there fellow Feb brides! We're the 29th Feb 2008... the leap year! really wanted the unusual date. So far we've booked the Church & Priest, Venue, Photographer, got the Pre-marriage course over with, notified the state and done a lot of research. Still stuck on deciding the musical aspect of the bash which is the next big thing we have to book soon. Anymore Feb 2008 brides out there?

Hey Justine We decided on Austria because I always liked the idea of a snow wedding. We both wanted something really different and neither of us wanted the big bash thing (me for one would be a nervous wreck) :-) We are also going on our own. Originally we had planned on just immediate family coming but the venue said that the party would have to stay in the hotel that night as they couldnt accomodate extra people in their peak time. We thought of then going to Scotland as we just couldnt expect our families to pay so much. It is very expensive to stay in the hotel we are going to. But then in the end....are hearts were too attached to the fairytale wedding in the mountains. :lvs So what we are going to do when we come back is just have either a dinner with immediate family or a bit of a party and some finger food. As far as dresses go, I am very very particular with the kind of thing I want but I think I have found the one I want:-) I went to Bride to Be in Dundalk a couple of weeks back, just to see if I could get an idea of what shape would suit me cos I was thinking of getting one made. But low and behold....found my dream dress. Just could not beleive it. So what about you Justine, any idea of what style you want??

I thought to notify the state the wedding had to be no more than six months in advance and no less than three months??

Great to meet other Spring 2008 brides.....we're Feb 1, 2008. So far have booked church, priest, venue, photographer....that's it...probably way behind on everything. But it's so exciting! Oh, and have already notified the state....no problem to do it this early...got confirmation last week....no getting out of it now! Have arranged dress shopping for March 3....so looking forward to that!

Dancing Queen, You can notify the state as soon as you want its the Church notification, certs and pre-nup enquiry that you have to do between the 6 and 3 months before the wedding. Hope this helps! CB
