    That's pretty unbeatable, except of course a bedside spa overlooking Sydney Harbour.

    I'm a big fan of the spa.

    Just booked a Corner King room at the Sofitel.... more then I planned on spending, but as I've told several people "I only plan on doing this once and I plan on doing it right"

    Now all I've gotta do is arrange the "fancy" stuff with the concierge.... have the thing pretty much planned out. Arrive in Melbourne late afternoon, transfer to hotel via hire BMW. Go straight to dinner at the in hotel restaraunt, gives them time to set up the room (standard honeymoon fair). You can guess the rest of the night

    I'm looking into organising a helicopter flight at some point over the three days as well. Our primary reason for going down was to see Phantom of the Opera but I want to pack in as much UNEXPECTED stuff as possible. She'd never guess a chopper ride because I am terrified of heights but willing to tough it out for her to experience it :)

    Nope... she's registered but hasn't actually come on for a loooooooong time

    Keep in mind, since I've made it public knowledge... anyone spoils the secret, I will castrate them!

    I got braces back in 1987 when I was fourteen. Had to have six teeth pulled beforehand. I wore them for about 2 1/2 years and then a retainer for another year. But my teeth didn't stay straight permanently. At least four of them shifted over time.

    They're anywhere from $3,000 - $7,000 depending on what you need to have done. My neighbor's were $6,000 but her insurance paid for half.

    If I book plane tickets before the wedding, should I put Jess's current last name or my last name?

    I'm just thinking that she needs to show ID at the terminal, so even though she would have my name, she wouldn't have the ID to prove it

    Put it in her current name. Signing a marriage registrar doesn't mean anything until you need the certificate to go about the name changes. Whilst her driver's license, passport, medicare card etc. are in her current name, she should use it until all of those things are changed.

    Bear in mind that these things take time as well, and can be a real pain in the ass. Word of advice from the missus: Get the driver's license changed first. It makes everything a million time easier because she will then have two things in her married name - marriage certificate and driver's license. A lot of places don't even look at the certificate - they see a license and that's good enough for them, whereas some places will require two forms of ID.

    The thing that's fucking us up is that we're due to get our full drivers licence's a week or so before the wedding. I'm thinking of holding off so that she doesn't have to apply, get the licence and then have to change the name!

    Airlines and cruise liners are completely used to these kinds of identification issues with newlyweds. Book it in the name of whatever VALID identification you have. We did a cruise and had no dramas. So long as you have a valid passport they're not gonna care if technically your circumstances are different. Take photocopies of stuff (like marriage certs etc.) if you are worried- don't take the originals as they might get lost or damaged. We also take copies of letters from doctors as my wife suffers migranes and carts heavy drugs with her wherever she goes.

    Other than that, I completely agree with maiL huma!!

    Personally, I would not be turning up to an airport hoping that the check in person was understanding to my situation of having a ticket in one name and all of my ID in another...

    Yeah for sure - deffo go with her existing name, as that's what will be on her documentation. That way you won't have to faff around. They'll have no idea she's technically taken on your surname anyway.

    There remains the relevant fact that could have kept her own name anyway.

    I checked with Virgin.... because we're flying out two days after the wedding, the name change won't be "official". I figured as much, I just wanted to be sure

    Besides which, you can't book airline tickets etc. without current ID, so you won't be able to book a ticket for her under a name she'll have in the future. For everything else, Jess will just need to show her marriage certificate at every place where she needs to have her ID changed.

    What is the general process for getting someone removed from a joint lease? Is it as easy as calling up the agent and saying "Its gonna be just you and me from now on"?

    That's what I did a while back. The agent literally scibbled their name off the original.
