OMG I’m married!!

This is my first ‘married lady’ post for the Live, Laugh, Love, Marriage blog! Woo!

So it has been just over 48 hours since my HUSBAND and I tied the knot, and it has been go, go, go ever since! What I will say for now, is that the weather was PERFECT, the dress was VERY uncomfortable, but the day was the most wonderful mix of amazing and emotional moments!

I’ll explain our big day in more detail soon and share lots of photos as soon as our photographer sends them over to us, but I just wanted to check in, say hello and let you know that I’d made it to ‘the other side’!

Happy Christmas.. and OMG I’m getting married in two days!

Happy Christmas!! I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas Day with your friends and families, and big hellos to anyone who got engaged over the last couple of days!

In two days I will be getting married!! I cannot believe how time has whizzed by over the last few months! And my big day is almost here!

Tomorrow I will be heading over to our venue with a car full of decorations (plus we have roped in the Father and Brother in Law to help) to set up our venue ready for our wedding. Hopefully I will be able to share a few sneaky pictures with you all before I leave to go to ‘the other side’!

Wedding day perfume

When I first started looking at wedding magazines and planning websites I read a few articles about buying a special wedding day perfume and so the hunt began to find my own!

I seem to have a very sensitive nose and picky tastes when it comes to fragrances as it took me a long time to find one I loved! And the one I loved was one of the last ones I looked at; Burberry Body Tender. I had a £30 gift voucher I’d earned through answering questionnaires, and Debenhams also had a 10% off day on fragrances so I ended up only paying £5.10 for my special perfume! Bargain!! And, I also received an ivory faux leather vanity case for free as part of a promotional offer! Yay! So I’ve decided I’m going to put all my jewellery and my perfume in there to keep them safe until the morning of the wedding.

Can’t wait to wear it in less than a month’s time!

P.S. A fab tip I was told my my dress shop was that if you spritz your perfume into the petticoats under your dress the fragrance will stay with you longer and you’ll be able to smell it as you move! And NEVER spray the perfume onto your dress as it can leave a greasy stain!

Children’s goody bags

Weddings are pretty boring occasions for kids. I remember when I was little, the weddings we went to felt like they started as soon as I woke up and carried on for a couple of days (this is probably not far from reality when you take into account the amount of time a child has to keep themselves clean and their hair tidy once the Mums have preened them within an inch of their lives and the fact that by the time it’s time to leave it’s WAY past their normal bedtime).
