Wedding Planning: 4 months to go!
WELL. The countdown is well and truly on now. It's only FOUR MONTHS until the big day and I am officially turning into Bridezilla!
Aside from continuing with my pinning frenzy, this past month has seen me tick a few pretty important tasks off the wedding list, including finding (and purchasing!) The Dress (WAAAHHHH!), ordering our stationery and booking our photographer. My gorgeous friend, Sarah (of Sarah's Lovely Buns fame) has offered to make our wedding cake too, which I am ridiculously excited about! I've also arranged to go to the flower market the morning before the wedding, have booked the most amazing 14th Century Inn for our wedding night and have recruited all of our friends and family into collecting miscellaneous items for my DIY table decorations! It's all starting to feel real now, which is pretty darn exciting!
Our next big thing is to arrange caterers. We originally wanted to have curry - our favourite food! - but we are aware that Indian food is an acquired taste and might not go down too well with some of our guests. Our wedding is going to be very informal so we aren't keen on a sit down, three course meal - plus we are on a fairly tight budget and there is no outdoor space which rules lots of stuff out - so aside from an old fashioned finger buffet, we're a bit stumped for ideas. I'd love to hear all about your wedding breakfasts for a bit of inspiration!
Aside from the food, next month is all about sending our invitations out, continuing with the making of the decorations and letting my bridesmaids arrange my Hen Night...... watch out, men with beards!
Although I'm going to keep the finer details of our wedding top secret until after the big day, over the upcoming four months I'm going to be writing lots of wedding related posts, including DIY ideas, style features and reviews. I hope you'll enjoy them xoxox
