Wedding Planning – Part 1

28 Dec

Evening All

I hope you have all had a fabulous christmas and the return to work today for some of you hasn’t been too traumatic.

As most of you may know Mr ESC proposed at the beginning of December and so we have now (mixed in with cake baking and Christmas preparations) managed to have a few conversations about what we want from our wedding.

I have thought long and hard about whether to blog about our preparations and have also checked with Mr ESC that he is happy for me to do so, but I think it is fairly obvious that I LOVE weddings and would just be bursting to tell everyone if I couldn’t (and also I cant think of a community of people I would rather pick the brains of when I get stuck!!!)

So Mr ESC and I have sat down and had the ‘what do we want from our wedding’ chat, and we both wrote down that we want it to be full of fun and Adam (Mr ESC) has also has said he doesn’t want us ‘running around like mad things being stressed out’ (has he looked at who he is marrying I ask myself???)

We have both totally fallen in love with the idea of lots of colour in our wedding and were inspired by the gorgeous flowers that the talented Laura Hingston did for a photoshoot with me and Sarah Lauren back in January last year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So this is our jumping off point……

Next on the list are venues and THE DRESS (and yes, I know it’s early on but when I will be rather busy next year baking cakes for everyone else’s weddings (not that I am complaining) I figure I might need to make some decisions sooner rather than later!)

I look forward to sharing the journey with you all and hopefully finding lots of inspiration and ideas as I go along (and dont worry there will be lots of cakes still!!)

Enjoy New Year everyone and see you afterwards

Morning everyone.

I just had to share this fantastic blog post from the gorgeous Sarah at Boho Bride (www.bohobride.co.uk) Anyone else feeling like this?

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
