So something a little different today, on February 17th (smack bang middle of summer in NZ!). My wonderful Fiancee (Edd) and I are getting married after 6 years of dating! I am so excited and can’t wait to be a ‘Wife’! So every now and again I would love to do some posts on the whole process of getting married!
Firstly here are the basics:
- Its a small wedding (about 50 people) starting around 3pm and going through dinner and as late as people want to stay and celebrate!
- Its french/vintage in theme! This excites me so much as I love vintage french and the whole rustic feel allows more room for error :p. This theme will incorporate lots of lace if I can figure out how haha.
- It will also be mainly held outside if the summer weather behaves itself
- The colour scheme is blue and gold *swoon*
- I aim (aim!) to do the wedding cupcakes myself along with help from family and friends. Ambitious yes but I would love to be involved in as much as is possible without losing my mind! I will share my cupcake adventure in finding the right recipes etc on here!
- I also hope that I can get creative with DIY stuff but this is a tad challenging for me. I will again share any ideas I have or things we do but would love inspiration from any of you! Or links to your DIY! Help a fellow stressed bride out? 😛
- my dress though not yet found is pretty much decided on in my mind! I will share my wedding dress ideas and inspirations in a separate post!
- the most important thing for me is getting my family together! I can’t wait to share this moment with everybody and although it won’t be the most fancy or elegant wedding it will be mine!
So I hope you all enjoy some snippets of my wedding planning process. Whilst I am not finding the planning easy whilst swamped at Uni I have faith that with some determination and help from friends and family the day will be perfect for me! (okay maybe not perfect but not far off!)
