    [–] It's the /r/melbourne random discussion thread [Wednesday 23/05/2018] Mrs_New_Vegas 4 points ago in melbourne

    Ugh.... first day back at work today after getting married on the weekend was a killer and now apparently I’m facing major delays on the Belgrave line to get home. Yay!

    [–] Congrats to the new couple!! Mrs_New_Vegas 20 points ago in melbourne

    I got married yesterday too! Congrats to this happy couple, I hope their day was as much fun as mine was!

    [–] VPS timeline? Mrs_New_Vegas 1 points ago in melbourne

    It also probably depends on the level of VPS your applying for. I’m only Grade 2, so pretty much as low as you can get - higher levels probably need more background checks, and the chosen candidate needs to be okay’d by more people etc. And also what area you are applying for - I’m with Department of Justice at the Supreme Court, so it probably just depends on the size of your particular areas HR department etc.

    So the answer is that there is no one answer!

    [–] VPS timeline? Mrs_New_Vegas 3 points ago in melbourne

    I’m a VPS, started in the role late last year, and the entire process from applications closing, to interviews, to being offered the position took about 2 weeks and I actually started about two weeks after that.

    [–] What special touches are you adding to bring a unique touch of you and your partner to your wedding? Mrs_New_Vegas 2 points ago in weddingplanning

    I love ALL of this, to me, that’s exactly how a wedding should be! 100% a reflection of you and you hubby. We’ll have been together for 9 years by the time we finally do the deed, so I totally get you on the not wanting an overkill of romance!

    What Carl Sagan quote did you use?? We’re both huge space nerds and I think my FH would LOVE this idea!!

    Ah yes!! We’re having our doggo in our portraits too! We’re doing a first look and we’ve hired a lady to pick him up from home on the day, and bring him to the venue for the portraits, then he is also being the ring-dog for the ceremony (he’ll have them in a little bag on his collar) and then the lady will take him home again and feed him and our car dinner and leave.

    What kind of dog do you have??

    Amazing!!! I love all of these, but my fave would have to be the cat cut out faces!! That’s insanely adorable and now you’ve got me wondering if I could do something like that too with my fur-kids, even though we’re not doing a photobooth.

    I also love your table names idea! It’s so creative and I think it’s so nice to be able to incorporate some of hubbys fave things too as I think we can easily forget about their likes and interests amongst all the wedding hysteria.

    Wow!! I’m in love with your dress too!

    [–] Wedding night accommodation Mrs_New_Vegas 4 points ago in melbourne

    We thought about that, but we live in Ferntree Gully, so feels a bit anticlimactic staying just down the road from home.

    [–] Craving takeout, so I prepped my own! Mrs_New_Vegas 2 points ago in MealPrepSunday

    I'm taking your recommendation and I've just ordered this book. Please don't disappoint me!

    [–] 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!!
