    I am getting married on 11th December 2016 at Brig O Doon in Alloway.

    This is the only thing we have booked, but I know the band I want; H2B's tartan; colour schemes; the type of photography etc.

    I'm also getting cards ordered to send to my bridesmaids to ask them.

    Hi and congratulations !

    we have our venue booked and like you I know what colour schemes I want, cake, florist, photographer etc.

    I want to start booking suppliers but everyone says its too soon and I should wait and I don't know what I should do, I don't see the harm in being organised as h2b is leaving it all to me to organise !

    Congratulations ladies! I was in a similar timescale to you Mrsmcgowantobe - booked in Jan 2013 for June 2015. But by March 2013 I had booked my venue, photographer, videographer, band, cake, transport for guests and myself. I knew who I wanted and ive never regretted booking so in advance when I hear some girls I know not getting their first choice of photographer, band etc. And as much as you prob hate hearing it (haha) it does go in fast! Ive only 14 months to go and I had 30 when I booked! If you and the supplier are happy I don't see why not x

    Ive had a few friends who didn't get their first choices and I don't want that to happen to me so think I will start getting in touch with suppliers !

    That's what made my mind up for me! Thinking I might not get them. One supplier at an exhibition actually said to me if you want X for your date and you think you can leave it for a couple of months there will be another bride on the same date as you right behind you! Which I have definitely found! It really will come round fast, when I booked I got the whole oh that's ages away but I got 2013 to myself to look at ideas book the main suppliers etc and enjoy it - now its the year before the wedding people are more interested but Im glad I had that time x

    Hi everyone,

    I am also getting married in 2016. We have decided on Saturday 11th June 2016.

    I have a booked a few big things as I didnt want to miss out on my first choices. We have booked the venue, band, photographer and videographer too. I am so glad we booked when we did as I now know someone else who is getting married on the same day!! The photographer we were considering was kind enough to email me to let me know that she had an enquiry for the same day, so we booked and paid the deposits right there and then!

    Cant wait for all the exciting things to organise like dresses, flowers etc!! Hurry up 2016!!

    xoxo

    Wow karynmartin on finding your dress !! But if you know what you want then go for it !!

    I fell in love with a beautiful headdress last week but my sister talked me out of buying it as I haven't bought my dress yet, I know what style of dress I want and the headdress would be perfect but she thinks I should wait till I buy my dress.

    lots of organised brides on here

    Thought I'd jump back in here, h2b and I have had to change the date and venue - so we're now getting married on 9th July 2016 at Pollokshields Burgh Hall.

    We're waiting on our deposit coming back from Brig O Doon and then we can pay the deposit for PBH. After that I'm wanting to our caterer, then the band; photographer and videographer: I'm hoping the one's I like will be at the SECC show in October and I get get it done there. Once we've got that sorted it'll be time for the dresses and the smaller bits and pieces.

    We are also using some of my SAAS every month to go towards deposits and saving, so that'll start in August.

    I'm definitely needing to get my bum into gear! I emailed my favourite photographers from seeing their blogs and reviews on websites (Craig and Eva Sanders) and they're already booked!

    Thought I'd update everyone... H2B and I just booked our reception.

    We are still getting married on 30th April 2016 @ glasgow uni chapel but our reception will be at the Parsonage in Airth! Very excited.

    It's so real now. Found a few photographers too so I'm going to contact some of them.

    Mrskerr2be. .. If you don't mind me asking... what happened to brig o doon? Elx

    I need to narrow down my photographers - I've got a whole list of them at the ready haha!

    Ehm, originally we were December 2016 but realised that if I didn't get a job after my paid probation I'd be unemployed for 6 months before then, and didn't want extra strain on ourselves with making supplier payments.
    We changed to July 2016, but this upset h2b's daughter's mum's family (long thread on emotional support) so we had to cancel - there were no other dates or days we could do: if I didn't have a job after June 2016 we didn't want to wait too long for financial reasons, and if I did then I didn't want to rock the boat with wedding time off; we also couldn't do it before summer 2016 as I didn't want to interrupt my probation for wedding time off, nor did I want to get married one day with no time off before and then back to work after a day or two.

    I'm thankful we found PBH as I love it - it reminds me of Brig with the high ceilings, being a bit more 'period' etc. Plus I'm saying it's a mini castle haha!
    I'm still gutted about Brig though, as it was my first choice and I had been imagining everything there. On the day it won't matter, but it's just one of those hard to shake feelings x

    Hi ladies,

    I'm also a 2016 bride although we just decided on a date over the weekend! It's 27th Feb and we are hopefully going to book the Western House Hotel in Ayr on Friday. I'm now stressing that I'm too far behind! We haven't booked anything yet! Lol

    Don't worry about being far behind, just make a list of what suppliers are a 'must' and then work from there.
    We're just waiting on a cheque to clear, hopefully tomorrow, and then we'll do caterers and photographers.

    My list is: venue; caterers; photographers; band; videographer and ceremony music; entertainment for guests during drinks reception; brides dresses and accessories; venue decor; groom and groomsmen outfits; bridesmaid dresses; flowers and cars; guest transport and then all the other bits and bobs like favours, gifts etc.
    (those are the main, I've probably forgotten something or other, but you get the jist)

    I'm making all my own stationery, so that'll be an ongoing project through the whole planning stage.
