I’m stuck and I need some help. I’ve been thinking through my wedding to-do list and I’ve hit a bit of a stumbling block. Old, new, borrowed and blue are all things that I want to feature in my wedding – but I don’t know where to start. Continue reading
So here’s a topic that divides my friends and I, and is definitely a source of debate for many brides. Wedding fairs. What are they, should I go and more importantly are they worth the cost and time to attend.
A year ago today was when I went from being a girlfriend to a fiancée. And in 6 months from today I’ll take the even bigger leap of going from fiancée to wife. This year has absolutely flown by. We’ve bought our first house together, started planning a wedding and put in place plans for a long happy future. I can’t quite believe that in 6 months I’ll be having my makeup done and getting ready to walk down the aisle to Lee, I know that day is going to be here in no time now. Today though I thought I’d share our proposal story, I just wish I could relive the moment my life changed in the best way possible.
Over the past few weeks I’ve been catching up with lots of friends and family and their first question is always how are the wedding plans. Without thinking I’ve got a stock reply of ‘really well thanks, I think we’ve sorted all the big things’. It’s a phrase that just rolls off my tongue without thinking too much about what I’m saying, because in reality if I reeled off every wedding planning thought that’s currently going through my head they’d probably avoid me at all costs until after the big day. There’s a few close friends (and obviously my mum) that I’ll share the full inner workings of my mind with but I figure they can take it and won’t run a mile when I’m going through the room allocation dilemma (again).
So today I’m very excited to announce that my first ever guest post is live over on Bouquet Catch, a new planning resource and blog for UK brides that have no idea where to start!
Head over to read ‘The 7 things no one ever tells you about wedding dress shopping’, an article I’ve written to give other brides to be a helping hand when looking for THE DRESS.
I’d love you to pop over and have a read and let me know what you think. There are some great resources over there that I’ll definitely be tapping into for my own planning!
I feel like we’re hitting another milestone in our countdown today. Exactly 9 months ago Lee surprised me by asking me to be his wife and in exactly 9 months time that dream is going to come true. We chose the date for our wedding on a day that worked well for us and enabled us to have the spring wedding we really wanted, what we realised afterwards is that we would be getting married 18 months to the day from when Lee proposed.
