Leading up to our wedding, I was so prepared. I had everything sorted and had no stress, aside from worry about our caterers completely ballsing up our wedding. Everything I could control, I had control over. The morning of the wedding, I woke up at 8, had breakfast with my family at the hotel and … Continue reading Wedding Planning (Pt. 8) – Planning & Execution of the big day
The worst part of wedding planning is .... .... the bloody seating chart! My husband and I have accumulated a massive group of weirdos over the years, so had a really interesting group of characters attending our wedding. We had people coming who didn't know anyone, and people coming who knew people a little too … Continue reading Wedding Planning (Pt. 6) – The Worst Part of Wedding Planning.
One of my favourite parts of wedding planning, was deciding where we would honeymoon. We knew we wanted to go somewhere tropical and likely all inclusive. I've never been to an all inclusive resort, but my husband had many times and easily convinced me it was a good idea. I was a bit apprehensive about … Continue reading Wedding Planning (Pt. 5) – Planning Your Honeymoon
When we were planning our wedding, I spent a fair amount of time reading forums, blogs and facebook groups aimed at brides. I knew what type of wedding I wanted and generally how I wanted it to flow. I knew what sort of things I would need to arrange, like flowers and caterers and DJs, but didn't … Continue reading Wedding Planning (Part 4): Wedding Insurance – Is it worth it?
In May 2017 my husband and I got married. We went through the fun, albeit sometimes daunting, process of wedding planning. We actively made a million decisions about flowers, place cards, invitations and seating charts. In the background, we were also working on keeping me in the country. I entered the UK in June 2015 … Continue reading Visa Application: FLR(M)
I've talked a little bit about my experience with wedding dress shopping on my Strength post, but thought I'd also do a separate post specifically about finding the right gown, as well as the selections I made for my accessories and my overall bridal look. When I went dress shopping, it was very .... strange. … Continue reading Wedding Planning (Pt 3) – Choosing Your Gown
Stuart and I got married in 2017 at Oaks Farm in Croydon. Don't knock Croyds! The wedding day itself was brilliant - we had such a great day! Hindsight is always 20/20 though, isn't it? While we made some great decisions, due to us being on a bit of time crunch, we rushed some decision … Continue reading Wedding Planning (Pt 2) – Picking Your Suppliers
I’m writing this, thinking about that time I got married and how I was told I was so ‘strong’ for making the decision to walk down the aisle on my own. I don’t have a father (well, I do, but he’s a bell end), so I very poignantly decided that I would go it alone. … Continue reading Strength
Nearly a year ago (13 May 2017), Stuart and I got married. We were engaged in April 2016, after a whirlwind relationship that started in October 2015 (hey, we move fast). We had a few factors that made us rush our wedding, and whilst I wish we had more time to plan, we really needed … Continue reading Wedding Planning – Part 1
Right, so many, many times, I've attempted blogging. I think I remember writing my first one back in 2012 when I was about to embark on my first holiday abroad. I had never been abroad before. Never travelled solo. Was just out of a ridiculously shite relationship. Thought, hey, how difficult can blogging be?! Well, … Continue reading Let’s go!
