This month, I thought I’d give an insight into the pros and cons of having the venue as your garden, a field near your house etc.. A lot of people have said to me that they think that is something they would like to do. It seems to be a way people are going nowadays, with venues asking for extortionate amounts of money to hire them for the day.
Some days it is sheer panic at the amount that we need to do and other days it is absolute excitement for all that is to come and the final result of all of our hard work. I think this emotional rollercoaster is a constant in everyone’s lives though, so that gives me comfort. This month, I thought I’d write about how our friends and family feel about our wedding.
Confession #9: Can it be over now? I can’t wait for the day when there is no building work or decorating to think about. I can’t wait for when there are no assignments to worry about. I can’t wait to not have to worry about the weather on the wedding day or that the musician won’t turn up or that the fish and chip van won’t fit up the drive! I honestly don’t know what I’ll do with myself after July 2019 – just lots of sitting still, please!…
The idea of looking and feeling like a Victoria’s Secret model is definitely still a goal for the wedding. Strutting my stuff (in a lot more than just my undies), feeling confident, and happy within myself, so I can truly enjoy the day. However, and this is where it falls apart, my stomach cannot be satisfied.
I don’t know if this is normal or if I am just indecisive and can’t stick to anything or make any decisions! At the moment (and the whole way through planning so far), my mind is constantly changing about everything. We know we want a small wedding day but how we go around that has been changing a lot.
I wrote the questions in November and have asked Craig to mull them over and answer them for this New Years post. It will give you all a chance to meet the guy who made these Confessions of a Bride to be, possible.
So yes, we are cancelling the wedding, and even though that makes me so sad, overall I know I will be a healthier and happier person. I will continue with these blogs as I really enjoy writing them and pouring all my thoughts out onto paper – it just means you have to put up with me for a year longer!
Emma our bride-to-be continues her confessions this time talking about the dress! She is having a unique, completely personal wedding and is braving away from convention to create a day especially for her and fiance Craig to enjoy.
