Hello everyone 🙂
I have vowed to be a more regular writer. It’s good to just sit, write and escape everything you don’t want to be doing at the current moment (i.e. assignments, blah!). So, what can I tell you guys that I haven’t already?
Well, in July, GP is turning the big 3-0, so we’ll be going to New Zealand. It’ll be major fun, and we’ll get to see GP’s friends (and groomsmen!) while we’re there. Also, our very awesome photographers of StudioSomething will be in Christchurch when we are, so we’ve lined up our engagement photo shoot in New Zealand. SO EXCITING.
In other news, GP and I have been thinking of things we need to buy (the little things – bubbles for the ceremony, chocolates for the reception) and I think we need to make a list. I’ll do that in my spare time (read: when I get bored of my assignment/my brain can’t think of my assignment anymore) so we can keep track of everything. Some of the things on this list are:
– Photo frames for the reception
– Scrap book for the guest book
– Nice pretty sticky tape for the guest book
– Gel or archival pens for the guest book (I don’t want the ink to fade…)
– Props for the photobooth (provided by StudioSomething – didn’t I tell you they were awesome?)
– Bubbles for the ceremony
– Parasols for my girls
… I’m sure I’ve missed only 1000 other things…
A lot of people tell us we’re WAY ahead of the ball game but we haven’t finalised (or… started) our cake, gotten all the important little knickknacks that’ll make our wedding special, and been fitted for our clothing (as in – I haven’t been fitted for my dress yet [I haven’t even got my dress yet…], GP hasn’t bought his suit yet [though men get more time than women], etc.). It’s getting into the 8-month mark, which is an exciting time for us, but at the same time, the closer we get, the more I realise we haven’t really done much!
So it’s time to get everything into gear I guess.
And also a question – cake or cupcake? Like seriously… what should we get!?
Ms Gingham says: I lean toward cakes. There’s so many amazing designs and colours not to mention the scope for design even inside the cake with colour graduation etc. I can’t limit myself to a cupcake personally….
Eileen says: “I am a Chinese-Indonesian-Australian getting married to a Dutch-Kiwi. We’ll be having our wedding up in the Hunter Valley and we’re planning it from Sydney. Although our wedding is still more than a year away, we’re trying to plan it now to save the stress later! (We’ll see how that goes). “
