Prep never ends

We have had a big two weeks! As soon as one thing is off the list 10 more jump on.

Nick has a suit
I have a hair accessory and a cardigan thing for when it gets cold
The best men have suits
The flower girl has a dress
All the bridesmaids have dresses
We have decorations
The florist has been given the vases
We have vows written (only a tiny part of the wedding)
We have sound equipment for the guitarist to use on the beach
Macaroons are ordered
Party hire tables, plates etc. is ordered.
Booze purchases have begun.
Cool room ordered

Our storage shed has been emptied and all our things moved to the beach house to save a little money over the next year - as with changing jobs, I also wouldn't recommend moving at the same time as having a wedding.

Still to do:

Type up vows & give to celebrant
Go to Apollo Bay
Set up new furniture
Decorate the place
Refine the party hire list
Drop off more vases at the florist
Tunes/Create Playlist
Buy oysters
Make the rest of the paper flowers
Bond form for accommodation

We hadn't, as yet, come across a wedding where the guys wore different suits. But I stumbled across this photo this morning and the guys look great.

Bridesmaids dresses

Flower Girl

We are extremely lucky to have a very cute flower girl. I thought that finding her an outfit would be the easiest part of the wedding. Boy was I wrong. There are hardly any shops with clothes for girls over 5 years of age. I thought the world was teeming with pre-teen girls clothes stores, but it's not. I've tentatively put together an outfit for her to wear, but am having second thoughts, wondering if she'd prefer to wear something more grown-up like the bridesmaids? What I've got now is fun and girly and not at all like the bridesmaids. Agh decisions....

Hopefully she'll look less worried than these little people on the day!

Hair and Make-up

I am very fortunate that our photography package included hair and make-up, plus the same for my mum. Having our wedding in a small beach town means that there aren't many options for hair and make-up, especially when I've booked the bridal party plus Nick's mum and sister into one of the salons. My mission for next week is to find out if there is anywhere else in Apollo Bay that I can direct guests to.

Is it that time already?

Today I head to Melbourne. I won't be back until after the wedding. Saying goodbye to my friends yesterday was quite surreal, the next time I'll see them will be at the wedding! It still seems so far away.

The girls came over for dinner last night so I could teach them how to make paper flowers and they could cut out all the paper flowers we need for the wedding - a good sneaky deal. The girls were troopers and we got everything done.

I came across this wedding through Rock n Roll Bride's Thursday treats and doesn't dancing in your ugg boots and a fancy dress look fun? I am all about the comfy shoes. A new friend recently confessed to me that she wore haviana thongs as her wedding shoes! Comfort first. Check out more from this wedding here.


We've had a few lovely comments about our invites, thanks! However in that post I neglected to mention that they were designed by Nick!

We were thinking of using letterpress, but the letterpress people wanted to change the design so we had them printed here (Alice Springs) at Colemans for a fraction of the letterpress price.

Photos We Love: Best Men

This probably won't be possible in Apollo Bay as I don't think there's a wall like this, but it is a fabulous shot.

Photos We Love

Our wedding photographer mentioned that we should send her though some photos we love to get a sense of our style. I thought I'd post a few here over the next few weeks...
