So this is it, the Bloggy Bride post you have all been waiting for with baited breath! Last week Clara from Utterly Feral talked all about ‘How to have a feral hen party’ and I cannot WAIT to see her post all about her own! This week, as we received our official photographs back yesterday (… thank god because otherwise I would have had to think of something else to post about!) so this is my official unveiling to you lovely people of the blogosphere! It was such and amazing day, went totally to plan and ran extremely smoothly; I could not have wished for a better day! So without further ado… Bloggy Bride get married!
So last week Clara from Utterly Feral shared ‘The worst things about planning a wedding’ and although don’t get us wrong we are psyched for our amazing days… there are some common negative vibes us brides to be feel that we can share and support each other with. As some of you may know, yesterday marked one week precisely until our wedding day. Now as well as being incredibly excited I am also suffering with the common ‘wedding jitters’; I’m not panicking about the whole ‘being married’ thing, more an array of wedding related worries that are common to most and I am listing them for you today to put you at ease that you are not alone! IWA: Imminent Wedding Anxiety (yes… that is a thing… that I may have just made up… but I like it) is brides natural state of mind when you are facing just one week until the day that you have been planning for potentially years.
After the amazing Utterly Feral’s instalment of #bloggybrides last week you should now have pretty much all you need to know to organise your big day… But as the fateful event of the ‘hen do’ looms and you think, what on earth shall I do? Well lets just say I had a pretty good idea of my perfect shindig on the smaller scale budget we had set for everyone (we had been invited to some pretty expensive hens and stags and decided that we didn’t want to put people in that awkward situation where they cannot afford it or get the time off work etc…) We agreed we would just do something relatively local… and for 24 hours. I had my heart set on a night out and then a spa afternoon the next day and started organising things when I was put to a sudden halt by one of my head bridesmaids; “WE will organise this for you…” Amazing. SO without further ado I invite you to be part of my gorgeous weekend… my ‘hen do’ adventures.
After the popularity of the spanking new #bloggybrides series, run by myself and three other fabulous bloggers, I was approached to give my top tips on planning your wedding for Elegant Steps. This was quite surprising as the ‘Wedding Blogger’ thing is quite new to me but as a blushing bride myself (… only two months to go… Eeeeek!) I was totally on board wth sharing my infinite wedding wisdom (well… maybe not wisdom… or infinite for that matter!) with the masses.
*waves* So this is my first submission for the #bloggybrides massive. I was super excited when the amazing Clara over at Utterly Feral organised this clan after a joint thought process between four of us one night on Twitter. Naturally she launched the series, which will take place every Sunday and each one of us will post once per month, check out her amazingly gorgeous post ‘Bloggy Brides: Clara finds her engagement ring!’ and the Bloggy Bride debut here. I am psyched to write about all things Wedding as mine looms just two months away and today I wanted to share with you all how to get inventive and create your dream wedding on a budget by getting crafty.
