Hi, I was told this was the place to be to discuss all things wedding related! I had a good search for a July 2012 thread and couldn't find one so hopefully this is ok and there's other July 2012 brides out there :) I got engaged at the beginning of January and we're planning a wedding for the beginning of July. Well actually two weddings. We're having a church service in Dublin and a Hindu ceremony in South Africa. The church is booked and we're currently picking between two venues and hoping to have them booked in the next few weeks. The hard part is we live in New Zealand so my parents and bridesmaids are having to do all the looking for me. I thought I was pretty well organised so far but I've been told I need to organise a band pretty sharpish too so I'm freaking out. Hence being directed here! How's all your plans coming on?

Thanks! Hmm - the link doesn't work for me. I'll have another look to see if I can find the thread though. I sonder why nothing is coming up in any of my searches?

hi girls, :wv just saw this thread and it brought me back to when the july 2011 thread just started. I'm a July 2011 bride and i got engaged last January and believe me the time seems to fly by! Would def recommend getting venue, chuch, band and possibly photographer booked first and then sit back and relax for a while. personally i think 18 months is the perfect amount of time to plan a wedding, nothing is too hectic and you can enjoy the gradual build up Best of luck with the plans and enjoy Wol :o)ll

Hi girlies!! I just joined up today and am also a July 2012 bride :) I get married in Clare on Sat the 28th July. Today I have spent some time trying to organise a band but am overwhelmed by the choice.I am also struggling trying to decide what to organise first in order to decide on the exact colour scheme. I want some variant of lilac. :) <a href="http://www.theknot.com/?utm_source=ticker&utm_medium=HTML&utm_campaign=tickers" title="Wedding Dress"><img src="http://global.theknot.com/tickers/ttd394d.aspx" alt="Wedding Countdown Ticker" border="0" /></a>
