Hello folks… This is real RMW bride group 3 number 1!
Have a good read and a butchers at the mood board and then please cast your vote for your favourite from 4pm – there will be four brides to choose from in this group and they will be posted on the hour, every hour from 1pm.
Hello *grins and waves* we are Tabitha and Chris and we’re getting married on the 6th July 2013 and that means we only have 458 days left to plan W day, not that I’m counting or anything!
On the day we get married we will have been together for 7 year and 3 months, yes I was wee 18 year old when we first met and I haven’t looked back since. As you can imagine, we’ve done a lot of growing up together. There’s been illness, redundancy, and miles and months of time apart but I really believe I wouldn’t be the person I am today without him. He’s the ying to my yang, the Ant to my Dec, the Robson to my Jerome (is it sad they were the only examples I could think of, I feel I may have exposed my lack of coolness too early on!) So that’s why, while standing on the beautiful ancient city walls of Dubrovnik (the boy did good), when he got down on one knee and asked me that very important question, I wholeheartedly agreed to be his wife, and I can’t blinkin’ wait!!!
So what kind of wedding will we be having I hear you ask! So far we have a ceremony venue; it’s a castle that looks like a church. We also have a reception venue, a beautiful country pub with a paddock around the back for a marquee. It featured in a Top Gear episode and it came on Dave the other day and we squealed with excitement (well I squealed and he more stared at me in surprise!) Last but most definitely not least, we have a photographer! We have just booked the amazing, drum roll please…. Chris Barber, found through these very pages. We met him a few weeks ago at his studio, and we could not be more excited. I have no doubt that the photos will be nothing short of amazing!
In my head our wedding will be an ethereal vision of beautiful flowers and greenery, twinkling lights, rustic mismatched lace bunting, and soft shades of blush! Transpiring this into reality though is a whole different ball game. We’re also very determined to follow the RMW advice of ‘Your day, your way’ but I must admit I find this really hard sometimes; it’s more within my nature to try and keep everyone happy. However I know this is impossible and I think it’s about time we got a little bit selfish (just a little bit)…well it is our wedding day after all! I’m hoping if I could become one of THE real brides, the RMW community would be able to help me stick to my guns!
Please leave a comment on your favourite post to register your vote after 4pm. Voting closes at midnight on the 27th April.
Good luck everyone!
