    Evening all. I'm marrying the love of my life on the 16th march 2019. I have already booked and starting to pay for the venue, got my wedding dress and most of the accessories. Looked at and booked transport ( horse and carriage ) sorted out colour schemes etc. Has any other 2019 brides started planning etc and have come across friends and family saying that your planning and paying for everything to early as I've had loads of people saying to me that I have done things to early and that the wedding is over 2yrs away. Even though this is second time around for me and h2b's first and hopefully only marriage I want everything to be perfect instead of a quickly arranged registry office and boozer afterwards ( like my first no offence to those that are having that type of wedding.) I've also had people say to me that it's wrong to have a female friend walk me down the aisle and that it should be one of my sons. The reason my sons are not is because they argued about it so my sons have agreed it should be my best friend who is like a sister to me has that honour. So they are walking the bridesmaids down the aisle.

    Hi Rachel
    Nope I dont think you are planning and booking too early. Im planning to get wed in 2020 and although I havent booked anything, I am definitly shopping around and making shortlists, I have even started making a playlist for the reception. There are no rules on how YOU plan YOUR wedding. You want to make sure you get the wedding you want, and booking early will gaurantee that.
    Keep us posted on your progress, will be interesting to find out how quickly and stress free you'll get things done :-D

    Hi Maria
    I've found planning early really easy and being able to spread the cost helpful. Luckily the venue price is good value considering I'm getting the honeymoon suite and 2 extra guest rooms, dj, flower centre pieces, chair covers etc all included in the price so all need to do now is get dresses etc for bridesmaid and my moh who's walking me down the aisle, groom and groomsmen outfits. Wedding favours are sorted as they are ferro Roche turned into golden snitches as we are having a Harry Potter themed wedding. I've done my own postbox with owl on top and have made a sorting hat, goblet and signpost for the top table and the signpost is for directing guests to the great hall ( wedding room ) hogsmead (bar) and hagrids hut ( outside where there is a seating area like a hut) . The venue is lending us lanterns to use. I have used a spreadsheet for keeping track of costs etc and amount saved each month. I should have main things paid for at least 9months before the wedding. Doing everything months in advance is helping keep my stress level down.

    Hi Maria luckily enough I knew where I wanted to get married and the hotel does package deals for weddings and we opted for the golden package which included a lot of things like chair covers, sashs and table planner and menus. But it was dearer than other hotels around it was a good deal for me lol and I'm able to pay instalments which was great. You can always ask venues if they use any events planners. Being in north Hampshire we have a company called 3v3nts 4 u that supply's a lot of hotels where we are. :-)

    Hello 2019 brides. How's everyone's planning going? We've booked our venue for 15/06/2019 and actually booked last May so getting excited that it's nearly in 'normal wedding planning' range! I've started DIY'ing! At least I have plenty of time to get crafty

    Hi Nadia, my wedding plans are all done now all I have to do nearer the time is bridesmaids dresses and accessories and the suits for the groom and groomsmen. I've also been lucky with a lot of things like transport and cake as they have been booked and I've not had to pay deposits due to planning in advance and I've requested that the companies I've booked with the actually write it in their diaries etc in pen and not pencil that way it can't be erased out and I've had booking confirmation from them. The venue has been brilliant that I've been paying in instalments since July last year so that the venue will be paid off come September next year a good 6months before the wedding date. The only thing I can't do at the moment until March next year is the booking the register as I can only book that a year in advance. Planning so far in advance has been quiet easy and hopefully I won't be so stressed nearer the time.

    August 2019 here!

    We've been together since May 2009 and h2b proposed January 2010.

    We're now in the position to start planning our wedding and thought it would be nice to do it for our 10 year anniversary :)

    We haven't set an exact date yet but we've been discussing it this weekend.

    We're in our mid 40's and both been married before, and are happy to have a registry office ceremony.

    Hope all your planning is going well.

    Hi everyone!

    I'm getting married late 2019! We haven't chosen a date yet but we know it's going to be late Autumn.
    I thought I was really early trying on dresses this past week but the shop consultants all said they prefer it when brides come in at least a year before their wedding to buy their dress! They made me feel like a princess :)
    We've been to look at some venues too. There's so much to do!

    How's everyone's planning coming on?

    We've visited 3 venue's so far.

    I think we've decided on one and we've decided to go for a Friday as cheaper than Saturday!

    Initially we were thinking registry office but now considering having the ceremony at the venue too.

    I'm saving my half of the budget but H2B has got his already, he got a nice bonus at Christmas.

    Nothing booked yet!

    We're going for a second viewing of one of the venue's in a couple of weeks, we've requested a different person to the one we saw last time as we just wasn't happy with her.

    I think we'll also be in the position to decide on a date at the second viewing.

    We've started buying bits and bobs that we can put away, not coming out of the budget so that we can spend more on the ceremony & venue.

    I haven't decided what kind of dress I want, I think that's the next thing I want to get sorted.

    How's everyone else doing?

    Still not booked a date anywhere!

    But I do have a dress, an ankle length tea dress in white.

    I'm currently looking for some blue shoes which is proving more difficult than expected! I don't want navy or bright blue, I think something in between powder blue and mid blue is what I'm after, also looking at white shoes in case I can't find any blue ones.

    Hi Sarah

    Thanks for the info, yes I've found a couple on @[email protected] The ones I've seen are a bit too pointy! No pleasing some people is there!?

    I think we've decided on the venue we went to last night, the lady that met us was so warm and welcoming, and that counts for a lot as some people we've met along the way haven't seemed that welcoming or helpful.

    We've short listed 6 dates, the venue from last night can do 5 of them, so I think the next thing to do is contact the registry office to see what dates are available.

    We haven't booked anything but have lots of quotes to go back to for various bits and pieces.

    Happy planning everyone x

    Hi all!

    Signed up just this morning, really starting to get into the swing of organising! We're getting married on 19th September 2019, and have booked our venue and registrar. Bridesmaids and Groomsmen sorted and we think we've chosen our colour scheme!

    I know we're getting married in 13 months but I feel overwhelmed by all the things we now need to start thinking of (we only confirmed out venue last week). I thought I'd have a little bit more time before really booking things! I'm scrolling through Pinterest and Instagram like a crazy lady haha.

    Super excited though :)

    We're meeting the Vicar next Saturday to confirm our date but we're looking for 19th October 2019! I'm going dress shopping on Saturday, our venue is sorted (and flexible because it's ours!) Most of our wedding will be DIY, I have quotes back from suppliers for transport, catering and photography and we have a band on standby ready to confirm the date!

    We're sending out our Save the date cards with our Christmas cards and it's going to be a complete surprise for most people!

    Roll on 25th August so I can finally get the date confirmed and the ball rolling! xx

    H2B has his outfit sorted, just needs to get a new shirt and tie. I've got my dress, I just need shoes but it would appear that I am way more fussy than I thought I was!

    We both put deposits on rings this weekend.

    We need to talk to the reception venue but the chap is on holiday now until beginning of September, gives us a chance to get a list of questions together.

    Slowly coming together :)

    H2B'S has got his outfit sorted, just waiting on his shoes to be delivered.

    I went for a pair of white and silver Rooby shoes in the end :) I need something for my hair and then that's me sorted, I just don't know how I want my hair to be!

    We picked up our rings this weekend. They are completely different and don't match each other, but what each of us wanted and we both love them :)

    Thinking about our invitations next, ideally I want to get them sent out in November, that will be 6 months to go.

    Going to be speaking to our photographer and cake lady next month.

    I think we're on track, how about you guys?

    Sillymoo, you seem so organised!

    We have our date confirmed with the Vicar! 19th October 2019! 416 days!

    I've been dress shopping and I think I've found the one but I want to try on some more just in case. However I keep being drawn back to the one I decided on. Bridesmaids have tried on dresses and we've pretty much decided on those and will be ordering them in the next couple of weeks.

    Have ordered our save the dates - they're not going out until Christmas though! But I want to have everything ready and prepared!

    My H2B run's an entertainment agency so he's sorting photographer, caterer, band and entertainment. Cake is pretty much sorted, we're having a 'cheese' cake and then I'll be making some cupcakes the day before.

    I have quotes from transport suppliers, we just need to put the deposit down once we have decided what time we want to get married!

    And last night we put our deposit down on our honeymoon!!! It's not until 2020 but for us it's a once in a lifetime thing. xxx

    How's everyone getting on?

    We have our appointment to give notice on 26th October, we're both excited about it :)

    We've got the sample invite ready and will be ordering this weekend.

    Had a chat with the cake lady and photographer, both of whom I work with. Discussed flavours of cake and shown pictures of what we have in mind. Looked at lots of other wedding photos that he's done to know that I'm happy having him do it, and I know he'll get the posed shots we want and relaxed ones too.

    We'll be discussing menu this weekend.

    What we are struggling with is timings on the day. At the moment the only thing set is the time of the ceremony, 2pm. As it's a register office wedding we expect to get married and have a few photos and be at the rugby club by 3pm, not sure what should happen next or what time it should happen. Any ideas greatfully received.
