Our Wedding – Four Months Today!

May 17, 2011  

Last night it dawned on me that in four months time we’ll be saying our vows, so I thought I’d take the opportunity to blog about how I’m feeling about the impending celebrations…

I have found it much harder work than I could have ever imagined. I don’t know if that’s a normal or abnormal feeling, but I can spend hours excitedly creating inspiration boards, styling photo shoots and giving advice to other planning Brides, but for myself? Nada. This is how bad it’s got…

♥ I’ve yet to create a mood board for our wedding – though I have a file on my laptop that’s brimming with saved images that I love.  My fear is that I adore so many things, the wedding will look like it’s having an identity crisis – or that I’ve vomited an eclectic mix of rustic, whimsical, bohemia with elements of folk all over the place. The general ‘theme’ {not a fan of that word} is ‘stuff we love’.

♥ I’ve only just started booking things for the wedding and still haven’t made a single piece of decor – though I do have a box of bits I’ve already stashed, which I’ll dig into…and I’ll borrow stuff from my folks too {thanks Mum} to save pennies! Again, worried ‘old curiosity shop’  and ‘musty’ might be used to describe my styling.

♥ Although I’ve sent masses of ‘inspirational’ images to my B’maids only two of five have dresses.

♥ My Groom hasn’t even considered his attire yet.

♥ My Dad is so begrudged to spend money – he wants to wear a suit he’s owned for years, circa 1970…it doesn’t look vintage…it looks tragic.

♥ Every time we sit down to read through ceremony/vow choices, we get distracted and end up creating our own alternative ‘I love you more than….’ stupid versions. It’s not big and it’s not clever – it just wastes time.

♥ I’m running regularly to fit my bottom and thighs into my form-fitting dress….then promptly rewarding myself with a carb mountain. My weight isn’t increasing…but it isn’t decreasing either.

♥ I’m having a recurring dream; I wake up, it’s the day of our wedding and I’ve not organised anything, so have to blag it all.

♥ I’ve developed a twitch in my left eye.

Brides-to-be…how are your plans going?

With Love, Boho Bride xx

Have fun everyone and try not to get too stressed out with all the planning

Busy Weekend

13 Feb

Evening All!

Well it’s been a very busy few weeks in Eat Sleep Cake world. It’s been very cakey indeed….

Today I was at The Fairwater Head Hotel Wedding Fayre (http://www.fairwaterheadhotel.co.uk/) which was a lovely friendly day in a sweet rural venue with great views. It was lovely to meet all the gorgeous brides (and grooms) and there was lots of lovely exhibitors too.

The next wedding fayre I am attending is on Sunday 27th Feb at The Thistle Hotel, Exeter http://www.thistle.com/en/hotels/united_kingdom/exeter/the_rougemont_hotel/weddings/index.html which is being held in aid of South West Children’s Hospice. I am doing the show in conjunction with Laura Hingston Floristry (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bouquets-and-Buttercups) and we are planning on creating a fabulous display to inspire brides with ideas for their big day – so come along and have a peek!

In other cakey madness I have done three cakes in the last couple of weeks for birthdays culminating in a mega helicopter cake for the lovely Jamie, which was delivered to the back side of nowhere yesterday.

Jamie used to fly one of these R22 helicopters and loved the cake.

Other cakes made last week included a cake featuring a remote control car and a leg in a plaster cast (complete with hairy toes!) So some very divers cakes but all of them really enjoyable to complete.

Also check out Boho Bride’s Blog this week. It features the photoshoot that I, Laura Hingston Floristry and Sarah Lauren Photography did back in January (http://www.bohobride.co.uk/)  Boho bride is a Devon based Bride to be who blogs about ideas and inspirations that set her world alight. Totally gorgeous and I love what she does – well worth a peek!

Till next time x
