    Bridesmaid dresses are going to be aqua blue - but its proving very difficult to find lol!! I want them floor length and strapless its just trying to find what I've got in my mind and whats actually out there lol!

    Melanie - I'm just so excited I'm constantly looking into things and trying to find things lol!! sweet table and a photo booth is a MUST! eeeeep!!! :D I'm having trouble with a photographer though as they seem to do a lot of different things and I'm wondering is it worth having them all day? Do I want them to do an album or will i do it myself lol. Problem with me is I keep changing my mind! Driving H2B insane! Thats also 1 thing I'm worried about - hoping and praying the date I want will be available when I ring next year! Do you know how much they are??xxx

    Well, I'm currently waiting to hear back from the venue J and I want as to whether or not we can have the date we want (we're planning for the Spring Bank Holiday - the end of May one).

    Have had some help and tips from a good fb friend who had a similar theme/feel to her wedding which was just last week - she's even recommended the photographer they used as he's really good, especially for those on a tight budget!

    I've been emailing and texting my dad like crazy this last week, hopefully going to look at dresses with him and my step-dad in September when I visit - although I know the dress I really want, I want to try on some more "modern" stuff; and besides, I'm only planning to do this once, so might as well go all out and do everything! :P - which has led to a stream of jokes from him because I was such a tomboy growing up and it's only been since I first started going out with J that I've developed any real femininity, apparently!

    Beyond that, fmil & I have been watching a lot of the wedding-y programmes on TV - thank goodness for v+! - and I've been grabbing up every wedding mag and googling every local fayre I can think of to get info and ideas; some days I actually feel lucky that I don't have a job right now, as I wouldn't know where or how to find the time to plan otherwise, and I've got almost 2 years!

    Hi Kayleigh
    Haven't been on here for ages! Our registrar will charge £620 to marry us at our venue - OH almost had a heart attack at the price lol

    We've booked a completely different photographer and a seperate photo booth and as a little bonus OH have let me have some singing waiters, DJ/disco booked for evening. Magician booked for drinks reception OH loved the idea. We've also got someone to play acoustic guitar for the ceremony. Wow when listed like that we have been busy lol

    Talking to a videographer now too :)

    We took ages to decide on a photographer, my OH is a pro photographer (but does wildlife) so was very difficult to please. We've gone with imagies on USB but have an all day package with two photographers. OH can get a pro album made at half the price :)

    Happy planning ladies :)

    Getting married Sunday 1st May 2016 :)

    Hi ladies,
    Me and H2B are looking at getting married early may 2016, but we have only just started planning. We've been to 4 venues so far, and I've booked to go to the national wedding fayre in London (Oct) with my other friend who is getting married summer 2016.
    Have lots of ideas and our cake is sorted as I'm designing it and my mum is making it, but we are only going to book venue and registra this year and will leave everything else until next year. Good luck with your planning ladies. x

    Same as me Chrissy :)

    We went to one venue, fell in love and will be putting the deposit down next week - scary! Half of me thinks we should look around other places just to be sure, but its such a lovely venue that means a lot to him, so I'm taking the risk!

    I hate not being able to book the registrar till 1 year beforehand... from what I hear from other brides they can be a nightmare to contact.

    Kayleigh - I have a turquoise colour scheme, is that thesaurus your aqua blue or a different shade altogether? We have had a little bit if difficulty with ours because everyone's described turquoise as different shades lol. I didn't have a problem getting my bridesmaids dresses though, the closest thing to ours is called 'Turkish blue' by the dress brand I've gone for.

    well i'm finding the same trouble as you... theres so many different people with different opinions on what they call 'aqua blue'!! what brand have you gone for?? I've seen a few nice ones on bay of the e - but i really want to be able to find somewhere i can get them to try on without costing an arm and a leg!?

    one of the colours is listed as 'lagoon blue' haha..!! some of the names are so silly!! lol xx

    My bridesmaids dresses are by romantica of Devon. L We got them from a bridal shop so unfortunately are not that cheap at £180 each. Are you wanting to go high sheet or willing to get them ordered in? The easy part has been buying ribbon though, so I'm confident that we have the exact same colour ribbon going around the stems of the BMs flowers, favour boxes and invites and I took the roll with me for the colour code. It's doable! Xx

    I'm happy to go where-ever for the dresses :) 3 of my BM's will be happy wearing a bag if they had too I've just got 1 which i can see causing problems! she's already being overally vocal about what 'she' wants - knocked her down a few times as she expects me to pay £250 per BM for dresses as well as everything else! I've already said I'm getting their shoes/jewellery and hair done for them so my limit per dress is prob about £100 seeing as i have 4 of them to do - the other 3 keep telling me there happy to pay for things themselves but thats just not how i want to do it!

    I've got a ribbon roll so I'll keep that in my bag at all times now!! lol - taffeta sashes are my prioty at the moment. xx

    There were only two blues close for our sashes for us to choose from but we went with organza I think as its more vibrant, and I had a sample posted and took it BM dress shopping! Good tip if you can get one. I asked my BMs if they would mind getting their own shoes and pay for their hair trial (less than £50 for the both of them) As I'm paying for their dresses, jewellery which I'm giving as gifts along with the rest and hair and makeup.

    Imogen I'm sure the venue will be fab - trust your gut instincts (especially if you both love it) :)

    We like one venue so far - but its at the top end of our budget, so we want to see if there is somewhere just as nice but a bit cheaper other wise we will have to reduce our day guest list. :(
    I'm going to see another venue this weekend but my partner cant come so going with my dad and step mum, should be an eye opener, as my step mum isn't afraid to tell me what she thinks...

    Yeah the registrar thing is weird, you'd think they would let you book earlier to make less work for themselves later lol.
    Some say 2 years, others say 1 so its a bit confusing. Hope you get it sorted.

    I've got an organza sash from bay of the e and i'm liking that colour but other things ive seen havent always been in the flesh sorta speak theres a few dresses online then theres the whole - will the colour match lol! ah well got plenty of time to do that plus i dont know what size the BM will be (1's preggers and 1's dieting - 1's a fitness freak!!) haha xx

    Oooh I didn't know there was a May 2016 thread! I am 14th May! Congratulations to all other May brides!

    We had no idea of when we wanted to get married, we then decided on the day we got together which was 14th March, however, this was during the week in 2016 which wasn't suitable, so we decided to chose whichever month 14th fell on a Saturday, which turned out to be May! Love it though as hopefully it will be a lovely spring day! x

    Yesterday was our 1 year countdown!! :D
    Starting to get more excited now, but trying to get the photographer sorted at mo.

    Have uploaded some photos of our venue with examples of décor so I can get an idea of what is possible.

    How's everyone else's plans going?
    Hope you all have a lovely bank holiday weekend.
