What if I don't want professional hair and make up?
I never wear make up except for special occasions. I don't like the look of fake eyelashes and caked on make up. I am wanting a fairly simple hair style and natural looking makeup for my wedding. I have 2 sisters with some good quality hair straighteners/curlers/etc and intend to get some good quality make up, do trial runs and keep things fairly simple but also nicely done. We have always done each other hair & makeup at previous weddings we have been to. But is this wise? What are the downsides of DIYing our hair and makeup?

No Wedding Party Table at Reception
I am looking at venues for our reception and along with that table set ups. We prefer long tables. I have always loved the idea of not having a wedding party table and sitting amongst our guests. At this stage we are not having a formal wedding party just my nieces and nephews as flower girls and ring bearers. Does anyone have any examples of how couples have done this? Or advice for and against doing this?

Hi, in crisis mode, our venue has double booked a portion of our room booked and are barely communicating with us to come to an agreeable solution, except at an additional charge to us (including additional fees that are not in the contract). We feel so helpless and defeated a month out before the wedding day!!! Any advice or help or tips?

Looking for wedding hire packages in Perth area
I am looking at Araluen Botanic Park Forrest Deck Marquee for the reception and I don't believe they supply the equipment. I am looking for a supplier who can provide the tables and chairs as well as possibly the decor, and I believe I will need to supply the items needed by the caterer. I need to know if there is someone in Perth who can assist me with maybe some sort of package deal.
