Happy New Year gorgeous RMW-ers!
So, 2013 is here, which means one thing……………..I’M GETTING MARRIED THIS YEAR!!!!!!!!!
Oh my goodness I cannot believe how quick the time has flown by. It feels like only yesterday that Dave had finally plucked up the courage to ask me to marry him! But that was over 2 years ago…and now we only have 6 months left! Eeeeeeeeeeeee!!
So, as you may have guessed, I’m just a teensy bit excited about 2013!
Before I get too excited we have a pretty big list of things still left to do! But we are the King & Queen of last minute so I know that it will all come good on the day! (I hope!!!)
So, did Santa bring us all that we wanted?
For Dave & I Santa was very kind indeed and along with an amazing array of gifts (we were seriously spoilt! ) he also supplied us with some funds for our next wedding project – the photobooth! Ever since going to the National Wedding Show with my MoH, I have longed for a photobooth at our wedding, because what’s not to love about dressing up in silly hats & getting your pic taken?!! Just look how much fun they are…..
Even though we don’t really have the space for a proper photobooth, I am determined to incorporate some photobooth fun into our day. Having scoured the internet for ideas, I have discovered that a home-made photobooth needn’t be a huge challenge all we really need is this:
- INSTANT CAMERA
- HAND-MADE BACKGROUND
So project photobooth begins here…..
Gorgeous Treats & Pretty Sequins
Another favourite I have seen grace many a RMW page is the gorgeous sweetie table! A table adorned with jars and jars of sweeties, or stand after stand of gorgeous cakey-ness…… Mmmmmmmm. So without giving too much away Dave & I have decided to have a display of treats for our guests (and us!) to enjoy – and we think they are going to love it!
So now to decide how to display these gorgeous treats? There are just so many gorgeous treat table displays, just look at these
But a while back, at a little soiree in Birmingham (!), I stumbled upon a fabulous alternative to the table display – the vintage wooden step ladder!!! Yup, sorry team RMW but I am stealing your immense display idea!
And to go with my step ladders (they still need to be collected from various family members & painted) I have bought some of these gorgeous table runners from H&M – I am hoping they will add a little glamour to the display, what do you think?
So are any of you gorgeous lot including a treat table? Are you a sweetie lover or a cake fiend? Or are you going for something completely different? I’d love to hear your ideas….
The Big Pink Bag
Finally……I am now the proud owner of my very own gorgeous wedding dress!!!! Yes, that’s right I have picked up my dress, Eeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
I have to say I don’t think I’ve been quite as nervous as I was trying on MY dress! What if it didn’t fit, what if I didn’t like it anymore……? I have already suffered once with the dreaded dress wobbles, I can’t go through that again!! So with a thousand butterflies fluttering around my tummy I made the journey back to Signature Brides to try on the most expensive dress I have ever bought! Off I trotted into the dressing room to be introduced to the dress I would spend my whole wedding day in, she was beautiful! Just as I remembered! So first worry out of the way, now to try the thing on! Now down to just my smalls and the assistant attempts to help me into my dress – there is a mild panic when it feels like it is not going to do up, but the removal of my bra does the trick!
My dress fits perfectly! And by this I mean I need absolutely no alterations what-so-ever!!??! Seriously how on earth is this possible? (even the shop assistants are surprised – apparently I am only the 4th person they have known this happen to!!) Wandering around the shop in MY dress I feel like a princess, I could wear this all day! Unfortunately the shop assistant reminds me that I should probably put it back in the bag so it doesn’t get dirty! So reluctantly I head back to the dressing room & that is it, my dress is back in her pink bag & I am waving the shop assistants goodbye for the last time!!
WOW, this just got real! I’m getting married!!!
Big ‘it’s really happening’ love
