Table Deco... more i know


Ok so i went to the decorator yesterday... forget vases.. NO MORE VASES...
She had some for the willow which is cool and ill be hiring them. BUT for the table centers they had these cool crystal/glass trio candleabra candlestick holder thingy :) and they had dangly chandlier crystals hanging of them... really cool and glam.
I also picked some coloured table cloths in satin that look LOVELY. Ive got mirrors to put underneath and some glass scatters... YAY sorted.
$25 to decorate each table and i only have 7 tables :) YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY

Mum and Dad... Their Wedding


Dress Dilema

I've been having second thoughts about my dress. I love it, but i just don't know if its really set to be a brides attire. Will I look back in 10 yrs time and go "WTF was i thinking???" or will I be proud of what I chose?
Mums dress was classy and elegant and timeless... I want the same style and grace.
So after tossing and turning all last night, today I laid out my dress on the bed and fell in love with it all over again... UNTIL... I found my breaking point!!!
On the back panel on the right hand side a large triangle of the original dress fabric is missing. Another piece has been put in its place and done correctly BUT... how bloody shitty is THAT!!!
I already made myself buy a $300 dress because I didnt want to spend huge and waste steves money (yes i know, OUR money, but im not working... yet) so I bought a Bridesmaid dress and claimed it as my own.
Now even after my pride took a hit and the bridal gown of my dreams was dismissed out of my love and respect for steve. These people have given me a defective dress.
If im only spending $300... I WANT MY BLOODY $300 WORTH!!!
ARGH

UPDATE 23.11.06

So much done in one day that I just HAD to report to you all with an informative update:
  • 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 :)

Lachlan Maquarie Room

If anyone has any decoration ideas... please put them forward :)

Other things they have...

Standing Floor Candlabras
The room is very boring and bland, I wouldn't mind jazzing it up with candles and the willow


I fell in love with these as soon as I saw them in an advertisment. Not loving the flowers, but the crystal tealight. Its going to be a VERY hard choice...

Ok MORE Vases... *sorry*

I guess you're all pretty bored with my ever changing view and designs of Table Centerpieces. I think after the wedding I'll be able to publish a magazine soley dedicated to the subject.
After pawing through my wedding magazines for the 100th time I came across a business, situated only a stonethrow away from my house... that has the same fucken vases i've been looking for!!! Sorry to get nasty... but bloody hell!!!
Above is a pic from thier website. I dont mind the design but I think its a little to smilar to Dani's. However it means that these vases are strong enough to hold the willow in the corner of the room as I originally planned :) Yay :)
I am having singapore orchids, but I may change my mind and just have blue delphiniums :) they are the BMs flower :) The point is, I've found a supplier close by who has what I want.
YAY

Paying the Sebel...Woo Hoo

Today we are... Paying the Sebel :D
I cant believe it, we're actually going to get married :D
$ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $

Forget the Duo...


Theyre booked out :(
They told me of another duo that would work nicely BUT...
...$1000 later we'd be too poor :(
I guess we're having an MP3 and speakers or a Dijijuke (pictured)

Inspiration... just no pink


Parasols... still searching

From Chinatown (the one i would have)

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 :)

New Table Centerpiece Design

Draft Drawing in Paint
Crystals will be suspended on ribbons attached to the roof at different lengths.
Singapore Orchid heads will adorn the ribbon and the candle plate.
3 different sized pillar candles will be on the Plate.
Maybe a table runner...
