I bought my dress the same week we set the date - $700 second hand off still white - bargain! This is it here http://www.stillwhite.com.au/18252-d...-brides-size-8 and I bought shoes this week too. Peeptoe brand second hand, not worn for $63. I also bought a whole bunch of real touch faux roses off ebay for $40 including post for our reception decorations - Am i still channelling "Cheap-Chic" or am I overstepping into "cheapskate-ville"? haha
We met our celebrant last week. Its a dude (DP chose him) and I actually know him through work. He's so funny and laid back with really suits our style.
We've booked our ceremony for Greenmount Homestead (near Walkerston, QLD) but we're undecided on whether to have the reception at a venue or to do it ourselves with a location and getting hire tables and caterer in

Can anyone recommend a wedding photographer for a tight budget in melbourne?
Ever since paying the deposit, ours have completely dropped communication to the point that 6 weeks out from the wedding we still can't pin them down to a time and date for a planning session! We were meant to have one this morning but got a last minute text message asking to reschedule and we've had enough.
EDIT: never mind, we found one!

I booked the photographer yesterday. She has an addition on her package where she takes about 50 poleroid pics for us at our reception on top of professional camera pics. Im not going to have some twine hanging on our gift/guest table for her to hang them throughout the night.
I've done up a mock budget and gaawwwsh everything adds up soooo freaking quickly. Little bits here and there all eventually add up.

If you don't want baby breath after your sisters comment why not go with 1 or 2 calla Lilly long steamed. You don't have to tell a florist its for a wedding so it would be cheaper.

Um, we did it.
Gorgeous day, a bit stressful though and a bit of an anti-climax now.
Note to future brides - when you test to see if your dress fits I would strongly suggest seeing if you can sit down, get in and out of cars and most importantly, (how can I put this politely), check if there is enough give in the lower part of the dress that you can 'powder your nose' without having to get undressed.
