14 July 2012 - a winter wedding (here in New Zealand)
My partner and I have been engaged since 2009 and just sort of...lazy about organising the actual wedding.
We booked a holiday to Europe for late July and family started asking if it was our honeymoon, so last Monday I decided to check how much our favourite venue would be. Answer: $235!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So, since last Monday we have:
- Secured the venue for the wedding
- Secured the venue for the reception
- Sorted out most of the catering details (save for final menu)
- Confirmed wedding party and celebrant
- Picked our wedding date and time
- Booked our photographer
- Decided on our colours
... Gah. It's like I went from 0 to 60 in no time flat. This weekend was all about the wedding, meeting both sides of my partner's family and sorting through logistics.
Our wedding is fairly DIY and we're looking offbeatbrides.com for tips and ideas. We're doing a sort of retro 1950s coctail themed reception, following our wedding inside the tropical flower Victorian greenhouse. Should be a nice bright wedding in the middle of winter.
