The Countdown - 4 months!

Wow only 4 months to go!  Time is flying, this past month has gone supersonic speed!

Our to do list is getting done:


  • Engagement Ring - picked up 2 weeks ago, love love love it, going to get our wedding bands from same jeweller (25% minimum discount, yay!)

  • Venue - booked & deposit paid & revisted to measure up for decorations

  • Celebrant - booked & deposit paid - we'll meet with her in a couple of weeks

  • Caterer - booked & deposit paid - need to decide on which 12 canapes & boxed dish we'll go with

  • Photographer - booked

  • Hair & Makeup - booked & deposit paid

  • Bridal Party - we told my sister about the surprise wedding via Skype on Monday night, she was gobsmacked but ecstatic!  She'll be my maid of honour, not having bridesmaids.  

  • Invitations - after my failed DIY attempt, have been saved by a friend of Mr Mel's, I've designed the invite, he's printing it.  I'll still do RSVP & travel/accomm cards myself

  • Accommodation - partly done, have booked a 3 bedroom house for my family coming from Vic, we're inspecting more this weekend for Mr Mel's side, and other friends & family

  • Honeymoon - have quotes for Vanuatu, hopefully booking today!


  • And one of the big ones, the 'lose some kgs' challenge, I've been going to Curves for almost 2 weeks now, really enjoying it and the other ladies who do the circuit at my 6.30am timeslot

    Start date28 Feb

    Interim Goal weight loss - 10kg - final goal tba once we hit May!
    Progress - 2.2kg, tba cm- day 24
    Interim Goal date - 28 May - allowing 7 weeks for dress to be finetuned before wedding!
