The Final Countdown

It is now the final countdown until D.Day….. Our wedding.

For those of you who don’t follow me on social media, my big day is May 20th the same day that Pippa Middleton is getting married. (I booked my wedding before she announced the date of hers, I’ll have you know)

We got engaged a year ago (Easter Sunday) and its been a whirlwind 12 months planning the wedding and deciding what it was we actually wanted. Now it’s almost here, I am thrilled with how everything has come together and am confident it will be exactly what we imagined.

It’s difficult not to get sucked into those perfect Instagram/Pinterest weddings you see online and when you finally realise they aren’t always realistic, you start to plan what’s right for you and not others.

Some of the useful items I’ve had along the way to help me plan the big day have been my Busy B Wedding Planner and Rock My Wedding by Charlotte O’Shea.

I would definitely recommend getting a planner of some sort as it reminds you of all the little details that really do become easily forgotten as you get into the swing of planning. This planner is fantastic as it has lots of different sections and asks for budgets and breakdowns of costs to help keep you on track. We have managed to cut costs in certain areas such as invites, tables decoration and the table plan itself. I can’t wait to share some of the photos from the big day and share my secrets to cutting wedding costs.

Rock My wedding started off as a blog back in 2009 and as a blogger myself, I found myself leaning towards wedding blogs for inspiration on real life weddings. This book is a great read and has some real life weddings in it as well as colour schemes, hairstyles, makeup, dresses and lots more. I will be keeping hold of this for any of my friends/family that get married in the future as I know they will love the inspiration it provides.

In 5 weeks time I will be a married lady and can’t wait for the day to arrive. Please stick with my blog as I share a few more tips and posts as will as photos from the big day when it gets here.
