Caroline's Wedding Planning

Our editor Caroline shares her own wedding planning journey...

10 weddingsSee what our editor Caroline learned when she attended ten weddings in one year!

Last year was a huge wedding year for me and my fiance Ian as we attended ten different weddings over 12 months. Despite working in the bridal industry pretty much every single day, I’m still so excited to go to all different types of weddings. Each one we went to was a learning curve and I’ve picked out just a handful that we attended to show you what we learned and what we might use to inspire our own wedding. It’s all in the detail!

When I didn't listen to my own wedding planning advice at all...

Having spent over half a decade in the wedding industry I can't tell you how many pieces of advice I have handed out to hitched readers, my friends, family, people I've met in the street...the list goes on. Now I'm planning my own wedding I do have to make a confession - I don't always practice what I preach. Here are some of my own wedding planning rules I might not have stuck to: Make Sure You Delegate Tasks I know in theory delegating some wedding tasks is the right thing to do for stress free...

Wedding worriesSee some of my most unreasonable wedding worries!

Just sometimes I have a *slight* tendency to worry about things – although I haven’t found wedding planning particularly stressful, every now and then an unreasonable wedding worry pops into my mind! Here are a few of my weird and wonderful wedding worries that have crossed my mind in the lead up to the big day… What if I get hiccups when I walk down the aisle? I don’t know where this had come from because I rarely ever get hiccups, but every time I do get them I think ‘Oh...

How we found our gorgeous wedding venue

Picking your wedding venue is one of the most fun (and scary!) parts of your wedding planning, it’s pretty much the first step of “proper” wedding planning and is when it all starts to feel a bit real. I had mixed emotions when we picked our venue, I was really excited to find such a perfect location but it’s also the time I started to feel a bit nervous at the prospect of walking down the aisle and saying my vows in front of 100 people. Picking a Venue As I grew up in Berkshire...

Our editor Caroline talks about how she picked her bridesmaids

Choosing who to have as your bridesmaids is probably one of the tougher decisions to make as you plan your wedding and one you probably feel socially pressured into deciding quite quickly after getting engaged. When it came to picking bridesmaids, I toyed with the option of the just family rule and having only my two sisters but it just felt like something would be missing if I didn't include some of my closest friends. So – much to my fiancé’s dismay - I threw caution and...

Our editor Caroline tries the Succo one day juice cleanse

When I was first approached to try a juice cleanse I felt a little unsure. I’m likely to turn hangry and get a migraine if I just happen to skip breakfast so the thought of a whole 24 hours just drinking juice made me a little dubious! But I decided don’t knock it until you’ve tried it and agreed to give it a go. As a juice cleanse virgin, I chose to do the Succo one day beginner cleanse rather than the three or five day cleanses to see if I could actually do it. A few days later...

Our editor Caroline shares her own wedding dress shopping experience

Last week I embarked on my first wedding dress shopping trip and I do have a small confession to make – before going on the trip I actually wasn’t feeling that excited about it. I am really excited to find my dress and to - hopefully - try one on and just know that I have found the dress , but when I started to plan the trip, I wasn’t overly enthusiastic about trying on hundreds of dresses to find that ‘one’. I see so many wedding dresses on a day to day basis and I...
