    [–] Plan for the long weekend?? Mrs_New_Vegas 4 points ago in melbourne

    Please tell me more about this dog blessing you speak of.

    [–] Top 3 expenses? Mrs_New_Vegas 1 points ago in Weddingsunder10k

    I'm in Australia so I guess the pricing is a bit different (ie: way more expensive) here, but our 3 biggest expenses are looking to be:

    Venue: $9000 - ceremony and a 5 hour cocktail reception for 100 people with all food and alcohol included as well as all decor etc and set up/ pack down

    Photographer: $3600 - we know he's expensive but he's amazing and the one thing we didn't want to skimp on.

    DJ: $1550 - pretty standered price for a DJ here in Aus. He's doing the ceremony music right through the night until everyone leaves.

    Coming in close equal fourth place are out celebrant and my dress which were $1400 each. Everything is so expensive here!

    [–] I said YES to the dress! I've been itching to share it with someone so you guys are first! Mrs_New_Vegas 2 points ago in weddingplanning

    I say a big yes to this dress and and double yes to the Goku face!! Seriously though, stunning gown, you look like a princess in it!

    [–] Said YES to my dress on the weekend and I'm so in love! Mrs_New_Vegas 2 points ago in weddingplanning

    Thank you! The colour of the dress is called Ivory, but it's really more of a champagne or even a dusty gold. And this picture doesn't even do any justice to the beading! I just love it so much!!

    Thank you so much! I can't wait for all of my family and friends to see me in it!! The gown is by Essence of Australia Bridal, I'm not sure if you can get this brand outside of Australia though....

    Here's the link to my dress on their website though.

    I've been thinking about a headpiece, but I'll be wearing my glasses on the day and I'm not sure if glasses + headpiece might make my face area look to busy? ... if that makes any sense! Haha!

    Thank you so much!! I'm even more excited for my big day now that I have my dream princess dress! 11 months to go!

    Thank you! I never even thought about a non-white dress, but this gown is just perfect in every way!

    [–] Does anyone know how to contact Victoria Police for a non crime related issue? Mrs_New_Vegas 2 points ago in melbourne

    Sorry, I don't think I explained myself properly in my first post. My fiancΓ©e never actually got in trouble for anything, but what happened was that he read something online somewhere and has now convinced himself that he fits into a wildly vague definition of some crime and that he has something to answer for. Anyone who's mind isn't clouded by anxiety is clearly able to see that there is no way this definition related to him, but it's sunk it's claws in deep this time and he just can't see the issue for what it actually is anymore.

    What I was hoping to do is to go to the police station (or talk to them on the phone) explain the events and then have them tell him he's got noting to worry about and no case to answer for and to stop worrying about it.

    I know it's far from an ideal solution, and in the past when he's had anxiety issues we've always tried to avoid him going to the source of the issue and getting reassurance, because he doesn't actually learn anything about dealing with his anxiety from doing that and another issue invariably comes up. But in this case, this stupid thing has been hanging over us for months now, and it's making him and us miserable and he's so stressed out over something than really should he nothing more than a passing thought.

    I'm over it to be honest and I'm ready to just take the easy way out and having him talk to someone about it so that the anxiety can't use the fear of the unknown as a scare tactic on him anymore.

    This anxiety shit ain't easy. I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

    Thank you so much! I'm not gonna lie, being the one and only (aside from his psychologist) support person for someone who has severe anxiety issues is exhausting and isolating and demoralising when you feel like no matter what you say it just doesn't help.

    I can't tell you how many nights we've spent going over and over and over having endless conversations about the same silly things and getting nowhere.

    My fiancΓ©e isn't really in a place right now where he is able to acknowledge my efforts and the effects this has on me (on anything more than a very superficial level at least) since virtually all his mental energy goes towards fighting this and holding it together enough in his everyday life to be able to function at his job and with his uni work. It really means a lot to me so have someone acknowledge that I'm doing my best, even if it is just an internet stranger!

    But we'll get there though. I know there is light at the end of this stupid anxiety tunnel and my wonderful, kind, loving, generous, kind hearted fiancΓ©e will shine through again! Of course it's not just going to go away and it's something he'll probably struggle with for the rest of this life, but it won't always be this bad. He'll get out of this stupid thought cycle and we'll get on with our lives!

    Isn't it!! Our theme is 1920's Gatsby glam, and I definitely feel like this dress ticks that box! Now just to decide how to wear my hair...

    Thank you!! It's perhaps a teeny bit to tight, but my wedding isn't for 11 months so lots of time to lose a little bit of weight. I just adore the colour, I never imagined I'd not have a white dress, but once I saw myself in this one I just knew. (Plus this was the one that made my mum cry when she saw me in it, which is a pretty big give away that this is the dress!!)

    Oh thank you so much! This is excellent advice! I'll shoot them an email and see if they might be able to help!

    [–] Does anyone know how to contact Victoria Police for a non crime related issue? Mrs_New_Vegas 3 points ago in melbourne

    This is a good idea! We honestly wouldn't mind paying just to help him feel better at this point. Another option to consider, thank you.

    [–] Does anyone know how to contact Victoria Police for a non crime related issue? Mrs_New_Vegas 2 points ago in melbourne

    I think so, just wasn't sure if there was some sort of program or something I could utelise. I'll just give my local station a call I think.

    Nah, I'm not going to go into it here, but 100% he's not in trouble. Anxiety has just warped this in his brain so bad that he can't even think about it rationally anymore.
