Four Months To Go

I never know whether or not to put weddingy things on here in fear people may think (in a Napoleon Dynamite voice) "God, stop shoving your wedding in our faces", but it excites me so if you're cross about confetti or mad at marriage look away now...

wedding planning castle cake

1. Wedding cake samples from Tanya at Sugar Rush who makes amazing cakes. She's based in the Northampton area so if anyones looking that-a-ways for cakey goodness then definitely get in contact.

2. Part of the bridesmaid jewellery, this was bought on a whim online so I'm hoping they like it. And if not then tough, I haven't bought out the bridezilla yet so feel I'm entitled to at least one crazy moment.

3.  Headpiece from Hair We Go, it's actually a lot bigger and sparklier in real life but again I'd definitely  recommend. They also have an Aladdin's cave of a shop in Northampton but sell their stuff online too for a rather good price. Annnd they let you use a different headpiece for your trial hair "do" so yours doesn't get ruined with all the pesky hair spray, how nice is that?

4. The Venue. I'm really hoping the weather stays dry as it looks like we can get some rather nice photos on the grounds. It wasn't actually bad at all price wise and we went with one of those all-in packages so the only thing we really had to organise was the registrar.

5. Bridesmaid shoes. Trying to find gold shoes that weren't hideously tacky or strappy was a mission, in the end they pretty much agreed that the shoes were only going to be worn once and didn't need to be super expensive so I bought these from this seller on Ebay after seeing some better, less yellow photos of them and they're surprisingly nice! Definitely not as orangey as the pictures.

6. Mink lace bridesmaid dresses. Thanks Monsoon.


So there's a cheeky glimpse into my wedding, as you can probably tell it's classed as budget but I'm budget and proud. Plus apparently anything under ten thousand is classed as "doing it on the cheap" which I think is madness! I'd have loved to have saved money and done some d.i.y a'la Sarah but I'm just not that creative and I'm all thumbs, I can't even cut in a straight line : /

  10. Wow, your wedding looks like its shaping up to be an amazing day already! I was maid of honour at my friend's wedding this weekend (I've done a little post on my blog if you wanted to take a peek - maybe steal a few ideas) and the venue looks surprisingly similar, where are you having yours? It would be such a coink-i-dink if it was at the same place! xx

  19. I did so much myself, and on the cheap, for my wedding, and it still barely came under £10,000 (maybe, I gave up counting the cost of it in the end), it's proper ridiculous isn't it? Everything gets like quadrupled in price because of one tiny word. More wedding posts please! I'm having such withdrawl, need some of my friends to get married already. xx

  22. Weddings are stupid money but its fun spending it. Mine 'only' cost £6k but it was amazing. I'm trying to place the venue but can't.

  24. you're putting so much effort into making it what you want that it will be amazing. I love the look of the venue, just stunning!

  25. You're right about Sarah, loved all her diy stuff but I would make a right mess of it all! I helped to organise a mates wedding and we did it for 3k, everyone at the venue was shocked when we told them. Who has 20k to spend on a wedding? madness!
    Love all the bits you have so far, going to be an amazing day :) xxx

  36. I love the wedding posts too, much more acceptable for me to look at when they pop up on a blog rather than when I stalk wedding sites! (I'm not engaged, dont wanna scare off the boyfriend) x
