My first blog for Our Enchanted Wedding ! I’m a bride to be and I don’t know if saying it out loud makes me elated or nauseous as the reality of the STRESS of weddings is so real !! So this is a real bride blog I’ll be bringing you as I plan my own big day. I’ll be sharing reviews, tips, ideas and any great bargain finds along the way. My background is weddings, I’m a wedding stationer and recently completed my wedding planner and event planner course so I hope to use my experience and the knowledge I’ve gained to help others plan their fairytale.
I’m a pretty ordinary bride. I open up wedding magazines and look online and feel a lot of the stuff I see is not what I’m looking for. Not every bride is tiny with a bottomless wallet and we’ve been told for years that those dream weddings are not in our range…. Well guess what??? They are and I’m here to show you little ways to have all you want for your wedding. Weddings are fabulous and amazing and they are (or should be) unique to every couple. You can inject your own personality quite simply and affordably into the day without needing a mortgage ! So if you have any questions along the way or anything you need help with feel free to contact me through facebook or leave a comment here.
So we are engaged 8 years and only finally nailing down our wedding, as with many couples real life gets in the way of your dream wedding between home, kids, work, trials and tribulations, the wedding is usually the thing that gets shelved when things go wrong . We have 3 amazing kids age 17, 7 and 2 and our journey to the wedding is all about family and friends and planning a wedding that will be memorable for us and them rather than something off the pages of a magazine !
So hope you stick with me as I rant and rave (probably), laugh (I hope) , cry ( that’s for sure) and ease my way along this rollercoaster that is planning a wedding.
Happy Planning xx
