- Paid the Sebel
I feel $5k poorer :( ... but feel rich with LOVE... hehehe corny enough for ya?... well it IS a wedding blog :D
- Chose and ordered my wedding ring... gorgeous!!!
Gold band with a white gold groove where 6 small brilliant cut diamonds are embedded... :D HUGE discount at the Michael Hill Jeweller 50% OFF SALE :D
- Inspected Hawkesbury Raceway Motel... Love it :D
For those chosing to stay here, all the young people will be in the EAST wing, all my older rellies will be in the WEST wing with the elevator. Remember to use my last name as a reference.
- Paid balance of the florist for bridal flowers... i'll leave reception decoration choices for another time.
I just love having everything paid off so far in advance... it also stops me from changing my mind too often :P The flowers are gorgeous and I totally trust my florist, I know she'll do a great job. I've paid for all the bouquets, fans sprays, buttonholes and corsages and assorted things for the ceremony. If the budget gets tight i can just use candles for centerpieces. But the main part that i want flowers (ceremony) is done and taken care of... WOOHOO :D
- Researched HardDrive Mini Camcorders (for wedding video+ future)
Having your wedding videotaped can cost a minimum of $2k... I want a video but I can buy a digital harddrive videocamera for $800 and have it to keep and make as many copies as I want. Some capture up to 24hrs of footage. We're also bugeting for a second battery. We'll get be asking a friend to videotape it for us... any offers??? Hopefully someone else will bring a videocamera, not just a digital camera so not one moment is missed :)

From Chinatown (BMs parasol)
At the moment Im looking for Parasols for Heather and Stephanie to pose with for photos. I dont want them to be too expensive cos they're just for photos.
www.chinatown.com.au has some good ones at reasonable prices. I've dealt with them before (the hand fans) and I feel they give a great service and quality product. They cost about $17ea.
www.treeoflife.com.au also has some in their store in Penrith but they don't have the exact colour I want, but they sell for $12ea. I could always just get white.
www.ebay.com.au has some listings, but mainly for lace ones. Theyre very pretty but at $40ez they don't really fit the bill. Ill keep an eye on ebay, but at least I have backup plans :)

Not much left to do really, untill closer to the day that is. A few things to pay for here and there but all thats under control too.
The girls are happy with thier dresses and the guys seem fine with the suits. I love my dress and i look stunning in it. All the decorations are organised and all the flowers are chosen.
We've written our vows, organised the order of service booklets and chosen the processional and the signing of the register music.
We'r slowly learning how to dance which is actually lots of fun and laughter :) we should look pretty sharp on the night :) We picked all the songs for that too :P
The Hens (on Friday the 23rd March) is pretty much decided and organised. But no more needs to be done until january. The Bucks (on Thursday the 22nd March) is still undecided. Not sure how many people and where he wants to have it. We may even combine the venue on the Friday night, just have separate rooms.
Anyway other than that no more wedding news... :D Im my fathers daughter
Love to all

I bought the dresses from a store in Blacktown... a brilliant find. They were $65 each but were apart of a 50% off sale so I got them for $32.50 each!!! They're made from streach satin thats fully lined with tulle at the bottom. The colour of the dress is effected in the photo due to the flash. The colour is the same as the tulle. The bottom of the dress is turned up in the picture to show the lining. It doenst really look like that when its worn.
