    Hi all - just thought I'd introduce myself! I'm Rosie, and my fiancé and I got engaged at the end of August. We're planning on a winter wedding at the end of next year - it's all very exciting! I don't have any close friends who are engaged yet, and have only ever been to one wedding (when I was about 15), so I'm rather at sea with all of this...thought I'd come on here to pick up a few tips and hopefully feel a little less lost about it all :). It's early stages yet but I'm really looking forward to actually getting married!

    Welcome aboard! Congratulations on your engagement too - how did your fiancé pop the question?

    You have definitely come to the right place :) Have you started looking at venues yet?

    Hi all - thanks for the welcome!

    Becky - he took me to Paris and found a quiet spot in one of the gardens, which was v. romantic! Not something I'll forget :).

    In terms of venue, we're looking at getting married at my old Oxford college (in the Chapel, with the reception in a beautiful old room with an arched ceiling), so it'll be somewhere familiar to the both of us and will be a beautiful setting. We're still in discussions with them about it and it's all moving quite slowly, but it's not for a year yet so hopefully things will pick up in the next couple of months!

    Your venue sounds gorgeous, I hope it all gets sorted soon. Have you got any photos of it?

    That sounds lovely, Becky!

    I've got a couple of photos - one of the main part of College with the lawns (although it's unlikely that we'll be outside in the winter!), and one of part of the building
    in the snow, which would be amazing, but I daren't hope!
