Hi guys, Hannah here. It’s been a wee while since we last blogged but we’re back and we promise we won’t leave it this long again!
So, a few months ago something very exciting happened… I got engaged! After 3 years together John got down on one knee in Cyprus and asked me to be his wife! I couldn’t be happier, I’m so so excited about the wedding and all that comes with it, but most of all, I just can’t wait for John to be my husband. I still can’t believe I’m going to be a Mrs though! We decided we didn’t want to hang around so we booked our wedding for August 2018, so less than a year away! We’re not leaving ourselves much time to plan it but I’m so excited that I can get stuck into it straight away.
Amy will be one of my beautiful bridesmaids of course, as well as our 3 friends Lauren, Sarah and Stephanie. I also have 2 flower girls, John’s niece Grace and Sarah’s daughter Ava. There were a few tears when I asked the girls to be my bridesmaids, mainly from Amy and me! I already know we are going to be a mess on the wedding day!
As soon as we started planning our wedding I knew exactly what I wanted. My dream wedding has a romantic feel with a neutral colour scheme, lots of greenery, plenty of flowers and touches of gold, with fairy lights galore. I’d like it to be pretty informal, with great music, good food and lots of drinks flowing.
I’d like to think I’m quite crafty so I’m going to do as much DIY as I can, I think that’s part of the fun of planning the wedding. I plan to make my own invitations, place cards, table numbers, favours, table plan and more, with the help of the girls, so we’ll be doing some blog posts along the way to show you what we’ve created and hopefully we can give some ideas to any brides that want to put a personal touch on their day. I’m sure Amy will do a post about planning my hen do as well, although it’s top secret for now – I have no idea what they’re planning (I don’t know whether to be excited or nervous). We might even do some filming along the way, we quite fancy a bit of vlogging!
Here’s a few pictures from my Pinterest board so you can get an idea of the look I’m going for. You can check out my full board by clicking here.
