Planning update. [Sep. 27th, 2005|12:07 am]
Sutekh Weddings

So, Tom and I are nearly at the 11 months-to-go mark, and so far we've booked the ceremony venue, reception venue, and talked to relavent bridal party members. There's still a lot to do, but we can relax a little now, at least until the end of the year.

Things to do:
1. Find cheap material places that sell raw silk or Thai silk
2. Find cheap dressmakers/tailors.
3. Tom to contact celebrant (he's Tom's old school counsellor)
4. Organise a time for all attendants to get together.

I'm worried that people will get shirty because there's a three-hour gap between when we have to leave the ceremony venue (3pm) and the earliest we can be at the reception venue (6pm). However, I also feel like going "fuck it, it's my wedding, they can deal".

In community news, I updated the community info page.

Ooh, for drapery? Or clothing attendants?

Organise a time for all attendants to get together.

I'm open for this.
(Also presumptuous :) )

...there's a three-hour gap between when we have to leave the ceremony venue (3pm) and the earliest we can be at the reception venue (6pm).

There is? Any particular reason?

Oh and yes, by and large, people can just deal.
I, for one, have no problems entertaining myself for three hours.
And some of that time can be taken up in getting over to the reception venue. It's not a LONG way, but it's not adjacent or anything.

Also, as an attendant, you'll be coming along for photos! Photos, man!

Also, we've booked the main quad for photos for an hour directly after the ceremony (yeah, the uni makes you pay, le sigh), and since that whole time probably won't be taken up with just bridal party photos, I thought it might be nice for attendants and their partners to get a few nice shots in. Since partners will already be there from the wedding, it won't require any transportation, and thus is an excellent plan.

1. For clothing attendants, and self. Self shall be wearing ivory, attendants (lady-style) will be wearing dark red, much the same colour as that lovely ballgown I own, and attendants (gentleman-style) will have waistcoats and cravats in the same material. Tom may be wearing a waistcoat and cravat either in ivory, silver, or black, this is to be determined at a later date.

2. Tom has actually asked you, hasn't he? He's not great at that.

3. Events at the Great Hall have to be finished by three (as evidenced by K&K's wedding), and Pelligrini's won't have weddings start earlier than 6, because then they can end the lunch rush at 5 and have an hour to set the place up.

1. Sweet! That sounds lovely.

2. Not in so many words, I don't think.
Though it does seem to have been implied a couple of times.
I'd be honoured.

3. Fair.

Yeah, Tom really needs to get in touch with lucky_tony or ask someone else. All my girls are organised!

Yeh, Nick took forever asking Chris C (who he's known for many, many years, from school) to be his best man...

I agree that it's your wedding, and people can deal with the time thing. We can all go get coffee in our swish clothes, or something.

Tiff

Ooh, and thanks for updating the info page, it's very cool. Also, Nick technically has a journal (in that he has it, but never writes in it or anything), and his username is ottago, if you want to change that too.

Best place for cheap material is in Cabramatta. you go from store to store and they will undercut each other - still will cost around 50 bucks a meter.

As for inexpensive dress makers I am unsure but let me know when you find some.

The gap between wedding and reception is not an issue normally if you just let the invited people know that they are expected at the "church" (sorry want of a better word) at this time and the reception at this time. People will organise stuff to do between them like go and start toasts to the happy couple at a pub or something.

Re: not a member but interested

on a further note I should be ventureing into cabramatta in the new year EARLY to look for material for my dress - If you still haven't gotten anything by then you can

a) come along
or
b) I will keep a close eye on prices for you (I too am after Ivory Silk) but you will need to give me a really good description of what youa re after.
