We have now booked a chapel after all the dramas we went through with the last place. (They booked it, but then re-booked it to another couple leaving us to find a new chapel and reception venue).

Venue is now going to be held at the Old Saint Thomas Chapel, Narellan. Saturday 30th September 2006!!!

Well….what a weekend. Mum, Dad, Craig and I departed home at 8:30am to travel to Campbelltown where the fun began….or should i say the stress!!

First off we went to Calabro…. to ‘browse’ the dresses…. but was worth it.. i found the perfect dresses, style and color! Looked for the guys suits but that’s another story…..put in the ‘too hard’ basket for the time being.

Off we went to Eschol Park House for a quick look at the potential reception venue. Greeted by happy/hypo John. He was more then happy to show us through the 3 rooms they offered…. and WOW! What more could we want.. they were perfect. Once all setup they look tops. We went through the menus, prices, inclusions and walked through the gardens (which will make great photos)!! After departing and driving away we all knew it was the one.. the spot that we would host our finale of a wedding. Packages were good value and plenty of grog was on the menu!!

Dicussions over lunch about cakes turned from good to bad. I hate fruit cake…. as does Craig…..BUT mum and dad insist on one…. all i want is a mud cake… whether it be chocolate of caramel.After all ups and downs we all settled one tier can be fruit and the other tier mud cake!

As we were driving home I noticed a bridal shop, where dad done a U-Turn and we headed back. We had 40 minutes before they closed and we sure made use of all the time. By the time we left i had tried on 10-15 dresses and left with 6 dresses i liked to wear and a price tag of $1600-$2000. Not the price i’d like but its something you will remember for life.

Finally the day had come to an end as we pulled up in the driveway.

After cleaning our newly renovated kitchen we headed out for tea, then made our way off to mum and dads’ for the ‘budget planning’ session. I tell ya… weddings are NOT cheap. This one is setting us back a nice lets see….18k!! eeeeeeek!!!!!

Glad to leave mums all i could think of was money money money! However we can do it, but i don’t know how…where theres a will … theres a way!!

Sleep… i need it!!
