    Hey 2015 brides !

    Seeing as there is only a 2015 in general thread, I thought I'd start a July thread like the 2013/2014 specific month threads :-)

    I'm 4th July 2015 ! How are we all getting on ? And do I have a wedding day twin ?? :-) xxx

    I'm 11th July 2015… And so far I've bought my wedding shoes! I saw them on eBay and couldn't pass them up!

    I am struggling to find a starting point. We are trying to save as we go, but it's proving to be difficult and we're paying for the wedding ourselves. We are hoping to have it in a barn type setting but I think that dream is going to be hard to fulfil! I have nothing against hotels, but wanted something closer to home (we live in the countryside). In a bit of a dilemma! Everyone I speak to says '2015 is ages away'… but it seems a lot closer without a venue!!

    What have you done so far? x

    Oh. My. God. Georgi… you're practically just waiting on the date then! Man, I thought I liked to be organised - but you are the queen he he! I am just worrying about money vs organising. I'll need a bit saved up before I can make deposits on anything. It's a bit stressful! x

    We've been naughty and done our deposits on credit card :-/ Managed to half our deposit for the photographer which was lucky :-) We're now saving £200 a month for the wedding.. Not sure if we're going to be able to have a honeymoon yet.. Kind've hoping on some money from FiL.. He gave his granddaughter £10k for her wedding ! But we know we wont get anywhere near that much.. Maybe £500, possibly £1000... But not holding out breath anyway.. xxx

    I bet you'd be surprised at what money you'll get as gifts! My friend ended up with over a grand! I've heard the new 'thing' in America is getting money in advance from your guests… Not sure how I feel about that. I think it's possibly a bit rude, as you're not inviting them for their money (although it would be great to get it ha ha)! I'll just be happy if people remember to turn up he he!

    We are asking our guests to contribute some money towards there meal as we really want all our family and important people there but cannot afford the all of them on our budget! So we are asking our gift from them be a bit of money toward their meal so we can afford for them to be there to make our day complete!

    I have already posted in other threads, but my wedding dress arrived this morning! I know we're all 2 years away (well, less now for me he he 11th July) but I feel like I am slowly getting there with organisation. We've had to change our plans for the venue. We wanted a barn wedding but in reality I think it's just going to cost too much! We are lucky that we live rurally and there are lots of beautiful village halls nearby. We'll just have to keep looking :s

    I'm new to the forum, but I'm a July 2015 bride. Looking for the 16th. We've 99% sure about our venue we looked at this weekend. and I'm going wedding dress shopping this weekend as I have zero idea about what I want.
    Other then that we haven't thought much more ahead. Should we be sending out save the date cards?

    Welcome squishy! I tried on tons of dresses and opted for a chinese custom copy - turned out really well and cost £160 all in! As our weddings are all July - it's always a busy time (ours will be competing with T in the Park weekend!) so I plan to send out Save the Dates 6 months before hand and then the invites 3 or 2 months beforehand - but I don't think there is a specific date or time this should be done - it's your preference! x

    Hehe less than 2 for me too Leanne :-D Felt great waking up on the 4th and saying to H2B, we get married in two years ! All day we were saying ooo we should be doing this now, ooo and this now haha..
    Eeekk !! Dress !! How exciting :-D Are you happy with it ??
    Yeah barns can be scary expensive cause of everyone wanting vintage / rural or whatever weddings... I'm sure you'll find somewhere absolutely beautiful hun :-)

    Squishy - Haha, thats my nickname for my baby cousin :-) 12 days after mine :-) Glad you're making progress on the venue !! And good luck dress shopping ! I go dress shopping in 25 days :-) Eeeekk !!
    We're sending our save the dates in June 2014.. 13 months before the wedding as a lot of our family book holidays a year in advance.. You shouldn't really need to send them out 23 months in advance, as people may totally forget about it by the time it's a year away.. A year gives people plenty of time to book time off work, save up for hotel room etc.. xxx

    Thanks ladies. Will plan to send out in May June time then. Trying to organise myself as much as possible, or at least have a good idea about what we want before next year as we hope to buy a house. I know the people in our registry office and seeing them this week. Hope to get pencilled in :)

    Mr squishy calls me squishy. He assures me its nothing to do with extra squishy bits and everything to do with Dorie from Finding Nemo and the jellyfish she finds.

    We've only been engaged less then a month and I'm starting to feel really weddingy!xx

    Squishy - the more you come on here you'll feel even more weddingy - especially when it comes round to other members wedding days - so exciting!

    MrsH - I am stunned by the quality of the dress considering the cost - really really amazing! You always hear good & bad/mixed reviews about peoples experience with chinese custom dresses, so glad it's paid off for me!

    Hehe, I called him squishy while he was baking cause they weren't deciding a name until he was born and I was watching Finding Nemo when I found out they were pregnant haha.. But it's kind of stuck now and I have to try really hard to call him by his actual name !! Haha.. I got him a baby grow with the Dori-Squishy quote embroidered on it :-)

    It really gets you doesn't it haha.. Wedding fever :-D We've been engaged for 2 years and 5 months, but had to cancel a wedding we had booked for last year as the venue screwed us over and we couldn't afford it anymore.. But we're all set and raring to go with this one :-) Got loooads done already and only booked our date in February haha xxx

    Yay! Well done Lana! We have our humanist celebrant that's pencilled us in for 11th July 2015. We just need to meet here to pay the deposit. We're going to view a venue soon too - it's a large community hall that we can decorate ourselves. We looked into having a barn wedding, but it was just going to cost too much! Good luck! x

    yeah i saw that on your thread, just be straight and tell them thats extortionate and totaly unreasonable, have a look around to just get and idea of what other venues cost for the same, i have never herd of a town hall charging per person, i mean brakages yes , but alsong at crokery etc is all in good order and cleaned and put away then its all included in a hourly rate

    Out of curiosity - how much did your insurance cost and what does it cover? I will email the woman and make her an offer for the hall and they can like it or lump it! :)

    that one you can also make our own plan like say your not having a car because your staying at the venue, (you can get rid of that bit, or most your wedding comes under pearl but your rings are really posh and cost more in the emerald platinum you can upgrade, or not having decorations as like in my case the venue supply all that in the package, get rid of it.

    We were meant to be putting £100 each away a month but instead I'm putting £100 away and H2B is paying £100 a month off one on his loans.. He had £300 put away already when we made the decision to do it so paid that off the loan yesterday :-D

    We would have been putting away £100 each for 24 months but now the loan will be cleared May next year instead of January 2015 so it'll be £100 for 24 months from me and £275 for 13 months from him :-) works out more in the end and then after wedding can put that £275 on his other loan to finish that early too :-D happy days !!!!! Xxx

    well would it not be best to pay of the loan first as else your paying interest, if you help by paying an extra 50 pm then it will be paid of that much sooner and can then both get on paying maybe a bit extra into the savings, we are currently saving 20pw into savings, paying off our car 100pm our bed 23pm and our credit card 30pm , and like i said my mum said shes gona pay off our car for us in january, so then im gona switch half the money towards paying off the remainder of credit cart which by then should not take much, then pay off the rest of bed, while saving and extra 2 pw towards wedding x

    The second loan is much newer and bigger so wouldn't be paid off in time to save enough for the wedding if we started paying it off after the first has been paid off.. He won't let me help pay the loans off as its debt from a previous relationship.. Plus it would've left us with less for the wedding as where he is paying £100 a month into the loan, he'll then be putting more than double away for the wedding when its finished, but I couldn't afford to put double of my saving into the wedding and me putting my £100 onto the loan only reduced it to March 2014 which obv isn't much difference..

    I'm not sure all that makes sense haha, but yeah :-)

    This is the way it works out best for us, finishing a loan early and saving more for the wedding xxx

    Was debating for ages about doing the 18th, as amongst other things weekends are more convenient espeically as most friends have kids, but it was too costly, we couldnt meet the minimum number requirement for guests and rooms :-(

    Hi everyone, newbie here.

    Just thought I'd browse and found 2015! Weddings! Cool. Everyone keeps telling me its ages away so keep thinking its too early to book anything!!!

    But I can see you guys are all ready on top of it!!!

    We are planning to get we'd on 11th July! Same as Leanne!!

    So in a panic I have just asked our photographer if she's taking 2015 bookings.

    Boycie's Missus that is same date we are looking at .

    Think it depends on each area as in booking stuff as a lot of venues we have viewed have in July 2015 limited dates

    Good luck with the planning
