My honeymoon here in the UK and a final farewell...

So, sadly, this is my final post and I thought I’d fill you in on our honeymoon before saying goodbye. Based on advice from my oh-so-wise recently married bunch of friends, my husband and I (ooh still feels very funny saying that!) decided to stay local for our honeymoon so that we could just relax and unwind, rather than jet-setting across to the other side of the world. Plus we weren’t sure we’d be able to cope very well staying on a typical honeymoon resort surrounded by lots...

Just Married!

by Ruby@hitched

A round up of my day! I'm MARRIED! 

Hey folks! Sorry not to have written for a while – the run-up to the Big Day all got rather hectic and was a bit of a blur of last minute dress alterations, veil shopping and rushing round to see relatives who had arrived from far-flung corners for the planet. Every time I sat down to write there seemed to be a mini-crisis to resolve and then all of a sudden, the day arrived! Well, after all the preparation, decision-making, and flinging money in all directions (mini champagne bottles cost...

The transport has been booked for my big day...

I recently went to a wedding where we had to rush from the church to the reception over the other side of town in the pouring rain. The taxis we booked didn't show up, so we had to resort to getting on the bus in all our black-tie finery - but by the time we arrived at the reception, I felt a bedraggled mess and needed a couple of glasses of champagne and a sit-down before I was ready to relax and party. Everyone arrived in a similar state, and it definitely put a bit of a dampener on the whole...

There are some fantastic websites out there with great stationery ideas

I love receiving wedding invites. A thick cream envelope in among all the bills and junk mail that gives the first hint of what the wedding will be like. I love all the old-fashioned 'carriages at midnight' formalities and pinning the invites to my notice board or (somewhat less glamorously) on the fridge. After much doodling in notebooks and consulting hitched.co.uk’s handy guide to wedding invite wording, we thought the time had come to get on and sort ours out. Although we don't...

I've finally found the perfect pair of wedding shoes

Anyone who knows me will know that I am a total shoe obsessive. My current collection not only fills up my wardrobes and our 'shared' shoe-racks in the hall, but I've also got a shoe-box mountain under the bed and a few boxes balanced precariously on the bookshelves. So, it was really no surprise that the perfect pair of wedding shoes would be a top priority. I tried to convince myself that something cheap and cheerful from the high street would be fine, but that was before I actually...

We think we've found our wedding venue!

As you've probably gathered by now, I'm not one of those girls who has had her wedding day all mapped out since the age of 10. I've still got no idea what the flowers are going to be like, what sort of entertainment we'll have and any of the details of the service. But the one thing I've always been sure of is that I wanted to get married in London. Both me and the fiancée are born-and-bred Londoners and whilst we've both done a fair bit of travelling and living abroad...

I have finally found something that is lovely, affordable and makes me excited to just thinking about it

Hooray! Good news to report. The wedding dress saga is now over and I am (nearly) the very proud owner of one beautiful, strapless, satin off-white wedding dress. After much angst and concern about not be able to find anything quite right (apart from a way-out-my-price-range dress I should never have tried on) I have finally found something that is lovely, affordable and makes me excited to just thinking about it. In the end I found it in a local wedding boutique - it was one picked out by the shop...
