Introducing LLLM’s guest blogger, Stef…

In addition to introducing you to lots of lovely ladies who are my ‘Real Brides and Brides-to-be’ I have also recruited Stef and she is our new regular ‘guest blogger’. In otherwords, you’ll be hearing a lot from her over the next few months!!

Stef, like the rest of us is also planning her wedding to her lovely fiance, Ciaran. She will be writing an article once a month to share her plans, achievements and progression with her wedding. If you’re a prolific blog reader you may recognise her from Rock My Wedding, as she is also one of their Real Brides (yes, she gets everywhere!!). Continue reading

‘Real Bride-to-be’ and ‘Real Wedding Wednesday’ updates…

Firstly I’d like to say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who has applied to be a ‘Real Bride or Real Bride-to-be’ – I’ve had an overwhelming response which has been AMAZING!!! I can’t wait to share all your plans and wedding photos with everyone!!

This Wednesday (as in TOMORROW!) I will be revealing and introducing our first ‘Real Bride-to-be’ who also holds an extra responsibility; she will also be our regular ‘guest blogger’. This means that you will see one article a month from her where she will update you with all her plans and achievements as she progresses through her wedding planning.

In the weeks between our guest blogger’s articles, you will get to meet yet more Real Brides-to-be; every Wednesday there will be a new lady for me to introduce you to. These ladies will be sharing a pre-wedding and post-wedding article with you

PLUS, (as if all that wasn’t enough!) I will also be able to introduce you to some very wise ladies; our MARRIED ladies!! These fabulous ladies will share their wisdom, tips and hints with you which is invaluable, plus photos of their big days!

Did you get all that?! Its so exciting that I think its time for a cup of tea….

Real Wedding Wednesday..

I’ve decided that Wednesday, the third day of the working week shall now be re-named as ‘Real Wedding Wednesday’ in conjunction with the start of the LLLM blog showcasing ‘Real Brides’.

So, on Wednesday this week (28th August) our FIRST Real Bride will be making an appearance… Exciting!!!!

ALSO, I will soon be introducing you to our regular ‘guest blogger’ – this lovely lady will be writing a monthly article to share her plans and achievements.

Its also an important day for me as it marks my ‘4 months to go’ wedding countdown!

See you on Wednesday for the start of something very special….

An exciting new chapter begins… Have YOUR wedding blogged!

I am 140 days away from becoming a wife. 140 days. That’s not long really is it?!

However, having had 766 days (to date)  to get used to the idea, I’ve come to the realisation that I’m pretty damn excited.

If you’ve stumbled across this blog by chance, then let me introduce my story so far and our wedding to be.

My fiance and I have been engaged since July 2011.. we got engaged in Cornwall after 1 year and 4 months together. Our wedding isn’t necessarily the ‘traditional fairytale’ wedding; in fact, its a crazy mish-mash of what makes us, us. We’re having a winter woodland themed wedding in a small manor house in the countryside. We met at the nature reserve where I work and so it really sums up where we began.

Expect lots of photos and DIY projects over the next four and a half months…
