This wedding thing has really crept up on me. We got engaged at the end of 2013, booked our venue, photographer and caterers in 2014, then chose our bridesmaids/best men, booked the registrar and found the dress in 2015 - after 7 months of hunting round every bridal shop in the north east of Scotland! Other than that, we didn't do much at all in the way of wedding planning. I've been fairly relaxed about the whole thing and kept reassuring everyone that there's plenty time... Suddenly 2016 is here and the happiest day of our lives is only 5 months away!
Suddenly I'm freaking out that we still don't have invitations... (work in progress!)
We left it too late to book a bridal suite... (Booked a standard room in a nearby hotel with the promise of an upgrade if it becomes available!)
I can't afford the shoes I really want...
We have 2 best men and both of them are out of the country!
How are we supposed to get kilts measured up without them?
There's a hen weekend to organise - trains, hotels, activities, money, money, money...
Speaking of money, when do I have to pay the balances to our suppliers?
Should we be planning menus by now?
We should definitely start planning the ceremony.
Hair trials, make-up trials, dress fittings... so many appointments, so little time!
Am I forgetting something?*
My head is buzzing with all things weddings at the most inconvenient times! Why am I always feeling most productive when I'm meant to be busy at work and can't send out e-mails to stationary suppliers?!
I'm sure it'll all come together in the end, as everyone keeps telling me, but it's going to be a crazy busy, expensive but exciting few months!
Any tips for successfully planning the wedding of my dreams?
*Rings! I forgot the rings!
