Bit of a brief, yet positive post for you this week, it’s not really about anything in particular but is rather an update of sorts, of where I’m at with this Wedding malarkey. It’s tricky at times to know what to post about, because there is so much I want to keep under wraps so that I can reveal all to you after the big day!
I don’t know about other couples planning their weddings, but Mr O and I have reached a rather lovely stage in our relationship. Yes he still nags me for not doing enough cleaning (really, I work, I blog, I shop, I wash, I plan – I clean when I need to!) but we’re co habiting well and I actually feel as though we are a partnership, a nice place to be in considering we are going to be husband and wife in 11 weeks time! I’m not one to gush, but have I told you how wonderful he is? He isn’t perfect but he’s pretty darn wonderful.
Admittedly I am doing, and have done 99% of the wedding planning. But then what does he know about home made confetti cones and bespoke boho chic table plans? In fact rewind back about six months I can safely say I wouldn’t have known anything about home made confetti cones or table plans! This time last year I was practically wetting myself about the fact we were getting married, and longing for the time to hurry up but now I would be happy for a few extra weeks just to get everything done! I’ve taken to spending money like it’s water, and I might be keeping Hobbycraft in business I’ve bought so much over the last 12 months!
This week I am mostly planning for my Hen night! This Saturday we’re hitting Bristol City in 40’s glamour style! Pics to follow in next fortnight’s instalment! I have finally received delivery of my beautiful bespoke invitations! UPS have a lot to answer for, delaying the delivery by making a cock up, I’m starting to wonder what UPS actually stands for (Utter Pieces of Shizz?) It’s all hands on deck now putting them together and getting them in the post. They are just so lovely though, I am over the moon!
I’ve started buying bridesmaids gifts, and found a gorgeous bag to match my wedding shoes. We’ve booked our pre wedding shoot with our photographer Kim, and I’ve chosen the music for our ceremony. The dress issue is all sorted, I’m not giving anything away yet you’ll have to wait for my wedding report to see what I went for! We have a menu tasting to look forward to, and planning meetings with our venue. I’ve had a hair trial and decided to have a very natural boho look. Up do’s with twirly bits and tiara’s just isn’t me so I am sticking to what looks good on me. I’ve been back to Julia Boggio and picked the boudoir photo’s that will go in my gift for Mr O and I am bowled over by them! I’ve been to our jeweller to see our rings now they have arrived, and I love them! I’ve found a lovely pretty, floral focused blog too, which I had to share with you https://misspickering.blogspot.com I check it everyday it’s really entertaining and makes my mouth water.
So pretty hectic is my life at the moment. But hectic with good stuff. Which is quite nice. I’ve really impressed myself with my wedding vision. It’s going to be unique, full of laughter, and and abundance of Love.
Now I need to crack on with these invitations!
Lots of love,
