Ouch, weddings are expensive [Aug. 3rd, 2004|10:39 pm]
Nick
Well, Hilary and I now have a date on which we've managed to book both a wedding venue and a reception venue. It's Saturday 16th July of next year. We've got the Magdalen chapel in the afternoon, and the Randolph in the evening.

Just done the first budget, and it's quite scary how much it costs to have a wedding like the one we had in mind. Still, off to see parents this weekend (it's parents meet parents for the first time, in Bournemouth and over a classical music concert in Merick Park). After that, we should know how much we can spend, and hence how many we can invite.

Then it's just a case of finding someone to do the invites, then sending them out. We hope to send them within a month, but if you're one of the usual suspects then book the date in your diary now...

Very!

The trick for getting invites written is to have a ridiculously enthusiastic little sister: Laura's organised just about everything for us - we worked on a system where we said what we wanted, she chose, and we had a veto if necessary!

Re: Very!

Somehow, I don't think my sister Laura would be that keen.... planning to try and get the designer from work to design the invites in exchange for a couple of bottles of wine :)

You all set for yours?

Re: Very!

Eh? Are both your little sisters called Laura?

Yes! Confusing huh?

Re: Very!

I think we're just about set (which is good - only 8 days to go now!)

I'm sure there will be some last minute thing though.
