Lovely newsletter.

I'd wait to find a gold pair of shoes.

I love the newsletter, it reminds me of a scroll which would have been used for announcements hundreds of years ago but more modern of course.

I also love the shoes but you have plenty of time to find the gold shoes you really want before the wedding. Also, if you buy those shoes would you really wear them? I know I would keep them in a box until the wedding day so they couldn't get damaged

You could set up an automatic transfer to your savings account every month, it is amazing how quickly your savings build up and you hardly notice the money disappearing!

You can always recalculate the budget again from next month ....
I know, I really love these because they are just too cute!

The reason I already have a pair, is because they go with the dress I already have ok I'll explain a little. When I was in the US in May, I went dress shopping. I was amazed at the prices, so dirt cheap compared to anything we have here. I tried on a dress and fell in love with it. It was gorgeous, but not what I wanted for my wedding dress, because it was so cheap though, I couldn't leave the store without it. So I bought it, and the matching shoes and hand bag. Now I've known from the beginning that it wasn't going to be my wedding dress - unless I simply can not find another one that I like - it was always going to be my At Home Reception dress, so the shoes and the bag were always going to be my at home reception accessories. However, I can't really justify buying more wedding shoes unless they are exactly what I want, because the AHR shoes will match any dress anyway, so there's really no reason to spend more money, on more shoes...

That is usually what I do, but at the moment our auto transfer is paying off our credit cards from our last trip They'll be paid off soon, and the money can start going into the wedding fund...

Oooh such cute shoes!!!

I have a friend who is a complete shoe-a-holic on the lookout for mine. I too want golden shoes, or a very specific shade of blue.
I am not a girly girl and I have zero balance so I need short heels of just flats.

I know what you mean about clothing prices in Europe. I lived in Spain most of my life and whenever we made it to the US on holiday we would always bring extra empty suitcases to load them up with clothes!

I'm at work counting down the minutes until lunch time...

I received a sample contract from Misty this morning but there's only so many times you can read through a contract before it gets boring...

Look at what I did!!!

I'm so proud of myself, because seriously I can not sew!

But look what I did! All by myself!



It's a garter! In my colours and everything!

Here's a close up.

The garter looks great and will be a lovely keepsake, well done!

Are you booking Misty? We're really looking forward to working with her - all her photos other Disbrides have posted look amazing

Thanks, I wasn't going to say, but it's actually my 3rd attempt I'm pretty happy with it, but I still might have a go at making another one, then I'll have a range to pick from, and I can always try selling the others on ebay!

Yeah I'm planning on booking Misty, I can't quite bring myself to do it yet, because I feel like the wedding is too far awy to have anything officially booked! I should do it though, because the AU$ is quite high at the moment...

Thanks!

Does anyone have pictures of blokes wearing a tux similar to the one that I want DF to wear? By that I mean a black jacket and pants, and a white shirt, tie and vest?

I've got the picture that I posted earlier, but I want pictures of it on people, DF doesn't really like it, because he thinks you wouldn't be able to see the tie and vest, but I know you can and now I just need to prove it to him

I think I've decided that I'm going to have the groomsmen in white shirts instead of the black shirts, but everything else the same - gold vest and tie - I think it's the safer way to go. I'll post a pic later today.

I haven't contacted any companies, but is anyone able to tell me roughly how much it costs to rent a suit, as apposed to buying one?

Oh, and I found a seller on ebay, who has a dress shop, who has told me that she could sell me the Alfred Angelo BM dress for $110 each, plus postage. I think this is pretty good because the dress at my local wedding shop is $270AU. and $110 in AU$ is around $140... So I know that it's better to buy it from her, then from here, but does anyone know of someone that sells them cheaper? I mean the real dresses too, not knock offs.

TIA.
