I was wondering where all the July '09 brides have gone too!! Plans are coming along well - I think we only have a few things left to do now. Must: meet with the priest at the end of this month to do the pre-nuptial enquiry. get suits for the bestmen. find a fake (silk) flower (maybe an orchid) for my hair - if anyone know where I might get one I'd be grateful! get shoes for bridesmaids. do up mass booklets. ...but other than those few things I think we're sorted. Just glad that I can finally say we're getting married this year. The time will fly. :o0 Princess Bananahammock, I'm sure you'll get everything sorted. It's hard to stop thinking about the things you haven't done even if you have most of the other things done - I think that's just the way it is!! I find myself even thinking about the things I do have done - just in case something hasn't been done properly!!

Hi, I have only just joined this thing, it's great. I'm getting married in July too :o)ll and i'm panicking now cause it's no longer "next year"- it's "this year"!! I think i'm not really sorted at all - must get bridesmaid dresses, flowers, invitations, legal stuff and video guy - oh jeez :eek Will I have time???

Hi Girls - I don't know why any of you are in panic stages, I got engaged at New Years this year :ooh and July is my date too! I didn't want a long engagement and it's a small wedding so that probably helps. It will all come together before you know it! Make sure to get people to help that you trust!

Hi Girls, Still here too :wv Sadbh, that's great you have half the reception paid already, would love to say the same but have a bit saved alright. Havent done much re wedding in last few months but now the 6 month mark is here, things will start ramping up again. Monkey15 did you have anything booked before the official engagement or are you just booking now? Fair play to you, would prefer a short engagement too but we have a lot of family in Oz/New Zealand so wanted to give them plenty of notice...oh and save some money too! PLus the time is going so fast it doesnt feel the 16 month engagement that it is. Have everything booked except someone to play music in the church. My 2 cousins are singing but I have nobody to accompany them, must work on that....and havent ordered the BM dresses yet though have them picked out. One of the BM's is due her baby next week so am waiting til after that.

Hi sweeties, I didn't have anything booked before but I've had a pretty good idea of our guest list for a while and it's only about 50. The hotels and venues I've spoken to so far have availability but of course, some of the hotels we probably won't be the only wedding! We are meeting with the Pastor next week, I have dress appointments lined up (but plan to maybe purchase online), only one BM and not having things like flowers in the church, fancy cars, flower girl, etc so there are a few things I don't have to plan. But still, I will be happier when our venue is booked and deposit down!
