My Big Fat Geek Wedding!


Finally I can start a journal in this section!

My name is Lottie and have been with OH for over 6 years. We met at university on postgraduate degrees as housemates originally, and got together in the first week (what can I say, I move fast ) We have 2 lovely boys, ages 4 and 2 months, and live in Newcastle.

We will wed in May 2015 in Harrogate.

Journal named as it is as me and OH are massive Sci-Fi fans, and I hope to incorporate it into the wedding some how...

Thanks for reading


The Date
25th April 2015


The Theme
Both me and OH are somewhat alternative in our tastes, I have a mohawk/mohican and we both love ska/punk music. We also love sci-fi, which will be in the wedding somehow! I know the Save The Date cards will have a picture of a nebula on the front (not saying which until the cards have been designed), and something similar for the main invites. At the same time I love the Victorian Gentleman look for OH, and having a dress a bit boudoir/corset and bustle. Kind of steampunk but not as it can look a bit cliché. I LOVE top hats Colours would be dark purple, dark green and I would love to have a silver dress (not grey as I want the thread to be metallic in parts rather than dull, if that makes sense)


The Ceremony Venue



The room can hold 55 seated, and hopefully will be booked on Monday when the office calls back Its super cheap too, just under £250.


The Reception Venue
Still to be decided! I would love to be able to hire a pub in the Dales and have a coach take the guests there and back, but OH is not keen on a big distance between venues. Im hoping to have something that can hold 100 people, and have just an evening buffet. I would love to give out party bags as people leave as we will not have the favours since there is no seated meal. Childish but fun!

Ooooooooo stalkers!

Ive updated the first post, once I book the venues I will write a list of stuff that needs doing. Feel a bit lost with regards to reception venue, wish I could just hire a pub! I dont want anything fancy, just a lovely room in the Dales with a bar that does real ale and enough room to dance. It feels daunting but I think if I focus on a particular venue type I can narrow it down.

Should really explain why we chose Harrogate and not Newcastle where we live OH is from Harrogate and we have had a few lovely dirty weekends in the Dales for our anniversary each year Newcastle is awesome, but is not as beautiful as the Dales.

Ah yes, Brunel knew how to dress:



I sooo wish I could influence what OH wears, he was quite adamant it was his decision, but Im sure he would appreciate my input

Well, today we are booking the ceremony venue! Its a mere £10 to secure the room, bargain!

Im a bit uncertain on the date, I would love May but I really like Autumn and the colours of the trees and cold evenings. But I would have to wait even longer if I did that, plus Autumn recently has been over quickly, bad weather can get rid of all the pretty leaves and make it rubbish! Hmmmmm.....

Oo exciting!

It is so hard choosing the time of year to set a date. Let us know what you go for. I too love autumn and don't know what will be going on weather-wise when j get married. I get married on September 6.
