    i dont think it is something that you have to be thinking about just now

    our venue just had to know roughly what we wanted on the menu so they could work out a price for the meal

    so dont be worrying about it

    how are your plans coming along?x

    BM's dresses
    Venue
    Minister and Church
    Cake
    Cars
    Band
    Table Decorations
    Chair Covers


    Starting to think about:

    looks like you have done alot already.

    are you hiring your chair covers or buying them? i have been looking for some but i want to buy them and im really struggling to find some at a reasonable price.

    oh thats another thing i have done is get invites made, we have done all the day invites and half of the evening.

    I have been into the kilt shop aswell as we are hiring them so wanted to check prices and when the men would have to go in for fittings. they have to go in sometime in feb i was thinking about april would be ok so gd job i went in lol

    what kind of cake have you went for?x

    I'm getting married on 25th June 2011 at Kilconquhar Castle.

    I'm pretty well organised! Here are the things I have booked:

    - minister
    - cars
    - buses for guests
    - flowers
    - band
    - cake
    - favours
    - photographer & make up
    - my dress & bridesmaids dresses
    - stationery
    - hair

    At the moment, we are in the middle of trying to book our honeymoon and my bridesmaids are working hard on my hen night!!

    Still need to book the sashes for the back of the chairs (castle are providing us with the white covers so it's just the coloured ties we need).

    H2B still has to choose the tartan for his kilt and we still need to pick rings but apart from that we're pretty much sorted!

    Looking forward to hearing from all my "wedding date twins"!!

    Happy Planning x

    We are hiring our chair covers from a company called Coverwiz - I met the girls at a wedding fayre on Sunday and they were lovely - they have been very helpful so I would highly recommend them!

    My cake is a 4 tier heart shape - it is quite simple but stunning (even if I say so myself!)

    I also need to get buses for guests booked - will start emailing around for quotes.

    I wouldn't worry about feeling disorganised - I basically made a list of what I needed and sat at the computer and emailed around for quotes etc. You will find that things will start to fall into place soon enough!

    This forum is also brilliant for ideas of companies to use - I have used a few of the recommendations and it does save you hours of searching the internet and confusing yourself with the millions of caompanies out there!!!

    A lady at my work makes excellent cupcakes! So she is making wee individual cupcakes for my favours. Our colour scheme is chocolate brown and orange so we're having chocolate orange flavoured cupcakes! She made sample ones last week ... they were amazing!!
