Kellys Wedding Journal - 6th July 2013... Countdown begins!!


Hi guys!
I've had a thread in this part of the forum before which I started nearly a year ago when I first started my plans but it's a bit all over the place so thought I'd start again!

Link is here:

*Kelly's Wedding Journal*Date booked! 6th July 2013!*

We booked our date and venue last year and since then we've kind of been sitting on our plans... Now all of a sudden I've realised that there's 12 months to go and I better be getting my bum in gear! We're expecting baby #2 at the moment who is due Aug 15th, so while I'm on maternity I'm going to be doing some serious planning!!
Looking at putting deposits down at the end of Sept as me and OH both get big pays, so until then it's alot of researching for ideas.

So far I've got a venue, booked the registrar, and a magician! (Priorities!!)

So far I think the day will go like this:

2pm Ceremony
2:30pm Ceremony finishes onto photos
**Hour and half waiting time for guests**
4pm Wedding Breakfast
6:30pm Wedding Breakfast finishes and turn around time
***7pm - 9pm*** - Magician***
7:30pm Evening reception starts

The Venue

Stradey Park Hotel - 500 deposit paid... Balance approx 4000, that's for approx 60 day guests, and doubled for the evening...
Inc food and drinks packages, and a BBQ in the evening.



Bridal Suite:



Ceremony and wedding breakfast room:



Reception Room, cant get a decent pic of it apart from this one:



Theme Ideas

I'll be adding alot of my ideas to pinterest but my theme originally was a lemon colour, it's now been changed to lilac, black and white/ivory (depending on my dress)





Been looking at these for Save the date cards to be sent out in Sept:

Just waiting to see if she will send out a sample

Hi guys just thoughts I'd update with my plans so far!
I'll go through each bit separately.
I've changed the colour theme to ivory/white and black with a hint of pink!

My Dress!

Spoiler


Shoes:



I've also got a headpiece but cant find pic and a stunning lace veil which she sold to me for 125 by mistake, when she rung to clear payment they told her it was actually 450!

Not planning on wearing any jewellery other than a pair of earrings which I've ordered already!

I've also got them hair combs from next which were an absolute bargain...
Still to get are the shoes, although I have asked them to pay for those themselves
