hi all... thought id step my foot in here and say hi.
after being engaged for 6 years and together for 7 we are finally tying the knot in August this year... its been an interesting journey to get to the this point... but we have pretty much everything under control now...
just afew small hiccups to deal... (df needs to find his wedding band)....
i have a few questions though....
1. when organising the seating plan for the reception (for those that had one) did you as the couple decide where people sat? or the brides parents if they are paying??? my mum has started dictating where she wants people to sit etc... and im beginning to get very frustrated by it all!!! (most of the guests are family and her friends... they are paying for a majority of the wedding... between my fiance and i, i think we have 20 guests of our own (not even)
2. 1 of my bridesmaids has come into financial problems... and now is unsure if she can the remaining amount owing on the dress... (i've already payed half of her dress ad contributed $100 towards the other 2 bm's.... but we are very strapped for cash now and are scraping together every cent we have to pay for the rest of our wedding... i dont know if i can pay the remainder of the money she owes on the dress... and she doesnt either... i dont want her to miss out as she is my best friend and matron of honour... i want her to be in my wedding party but i feel like im in a rock and a hard place... any suggestions???
and number 3.
if you had guests with SEVERE allergies to food etc and they wanted to attend the wedding but bring their own meal... do you think you should still have to pay full price at the venue for them?
sorry to bombared everyone.
hope everyone elses plans are coming along nicely!
