I'm aware that I haven't written a wedding post for some time so I thought I'd fill you in on what's been going on.
This time next year I will be in full wedding mode as it will be just over a week until the wedding. I know this year will fly by and we still have so much to do!
We are getting married on Friday 22nd August at 3.00pm. We have picked the best man, ushers, maid of honor, bridesmaids, flower girl & page boy.
We have chosen our photographer which I am very excited about. He's behind these amazing shots of Ava when she was only a few weeks old. I'm so excited to work with him again. I've added a link to his website below where you can go and check out some of his work.
I've not yet chosen my wedding dress, I've seen one I like online but we are officially shopping for the dress next month. I don't want to let the cat out of the bag and won't reveal the dress until the big day but the styles I'm loving at the moment are fitted and lacy, having said that it could all change when I'm trying them on...
Bridesmaids dresses have proven to be tricky too. I haven't got a specific colour in mind, I have three potentials that could work with our theme, blush pink, duck egg blue and pastel green. I'm keeping my options open with this one and I'm letting the girls have their say too. I'm very much on the hunt so if anyone knows any good shops I'm all ears.
Our theme is rustic so I'm going to try and make what I can, keep the flowers wild and add lots of lavender.
I want our theme to reflect in our stationary but it's so hard! I spend hours trawling Pintrest looking for inspiration
I wrote a whole post about groomswear here and that still stands. I'm still undecided about the suit colour though.
I'm trying to grow my hair so that it will be long enough to play with on the day. I'm loving both of these.
We have decided on a cold meat buffet for our meal and we will be having a band and a DJ. We're still in the process of finding a band.
There is so much to do and think of, I want to make the orders of service and various other decorations but being the non-crafty type it's proving harder than I first thought.
Along with the wedding organising we are also in the process of organising our Hen & Stag do's. I must admit the whole feather boas, L plates and flashing antennas make me cringe! So I'm going away with a group of my closest girlfriends to Barcelona for 3-4 nights, Nath is going to Marbella with a gang of his guy friends. This is all in full preperation mode for next June but I've handed the reins over to my maid of honor, she's organising it all for me which is nice.
So there we have it, as you can see everything is still up in the air! I think once I've got the dress sorted things will start to fall into place. That's what I'm hoping anyway.
What do you think of my theme?
