Starting with the arrival of my wedding photos last Tuesday (so still not over these), then came the long awaited, but absolutely no less exciting engagement of one of my best and longest friend.
I can tell her brain is on overdrive already – she has been emailing me random links and photos everyday this week with ideas for the venue, transport, dress, right down to food – she hasn’t even set a date yet! Not that I mind – I am, after all, ‘Creative Director’!
Seriously though, I am so looking forward to this wedding and getting another chance to be involved in wedding decorations. In some ways this is more fun that doing my own as I don’t have to deal with my own indecisiveness or the added pressure of the fact that it was ‘my own’.
I just get Laura to tell me her ideas, anything particular she wants and likes, and using what I also know she is like, I get to do the fun part browsing yet more real weddings on blogs for inspiration, thinking of ideas and hopefully getting the chance to do more diy-ing!
I have already got a pretty good idea of what this wedding is going to be like (a week in and the mood board has already been started!). Two words that initially spring to mind though include: big fun and hearty (actually that’s more that two words but you get the idea!).
Rounding up the week, four pages on and I completed, finally, the Rock My Wedding questionnaire essay-style. How exciting is it that this blog was one I used the most for ideas and inspiration when planning my own wedding, and now my wedding is the one hopefully giving this back to other brides to be – it is like the wedding circle of life (kind of!). However, writing this was both:
a) Difficult – due to the amount of stuff that we did for our wedding and remembering every detail and everyone that was involved, and making sure my words gave them, and how I feel about the wedding, enough credit.
b) Really nice – because it was lovely to go through it all again and show and tell the world (the wedding world that is) about it and everything that we did. I hope I gave enough information and I hope my write up will help other brides.
Last but not least in the wedding-filled week is an actual wedding – woo! Off to Derbyshire tomorrow to my uni friend’s wedding. Not only am I looking forward to seeing the lovely bride Hannah and catching up with my friends (I might actually get more of a chance to speak to them at this wedding since the last one – my own), it’s good for research purposes. Everyone has different styles of wedding and their personalities should show through in this, I am going to keep my eyes open for lots of ideas!
In other news: this week I have made:
- a glasses case for my mum (using a variation of a Cath Kidston pattern)
- fabric letters – as a test run for a project I have been asked to do but more news on this another time as this post is already a bit long! (It’s been a busy week!)
