Before we get into the madness of all the festive posts and gift guides, I wanted to share an update on my wedding preparations with you.
The wedding is booked for early May. We are getting married in a beautiful registry office with 15 guests, follow by an intimate lunch in a nearby private dining room. The theme of the restaurant for lunch is very Art Deco, so there will be lots of gold and green to match the room. I’ve already chosen all the favours, plus the place settings. All I need to do is order fresh floral table displays in blush pink shades – likely peonies. We will also have giant floral ‘D’ and ‘L’ letters on the bar. There are quite a few kids amongst the 15 guests, so we’ll also have a kid’s breakout booth where they can escape from the main table to colour in and do puzzles.I’ve been using this lovely wedding planner* (£22.99) from Caledona Design Co —- to keep track of everything. It’s so pretty and goes with my theme so well. There are sections for each month you get closer to the big day, with tips on what you should be getting in place. The budgeting section is also really helpful for the party we are planning for our wider friends and family after we get back from our honeymoon.
I haven’t chosen a dress yet, or even been looking, but in my head I know exactly what dress, shoes and other secret special touches I want. I’ve chosen my bridal fragrances with Jo Malone, which you can read about here, and i’ll also be partnering with a lovely brand for my makeup. I’ll be doing my own makeup with their products and then a hairdresser will be coming to do my hair. I’ll be staying at home the night before my wedding with my Maid of Honour, and David will be staying in a hotel with his Best Man. I’m so excited!
My Maid of Honour is my beautiful friend Ayden (aka hellorogue), who I love more than I can even put into words. I’m so happy to have her by my side when I’m choosing my dress, and with me the night before the wedding. I’m also so happy to have her beautiful family at the ceremony and lunch. Ayden gets me like nobody else and I know she’ll know exactly what to say the night before to keep me calm. The Our honeymoon is all booked. We are having 7 days in Walt Disney World, then a Disney Cruise to the Bahamas. Unbelievably amazing and I am so excited to show David around Walt Disney World – one of my favourite places on Earth.
I am so lucky to be marrying this amazing, thoughtful, gorgeous and hilariously funny man who makes me laugh hysterically every day, and often cry too at his acts of kindness and love towards me. It’s me and him against the world, and I can’t wait for all our future adventures.
