I'm getting married! Eeek!


I honestly had no idea BnB had a brides section!

I got engaged a couple of weeks ago to my lovely OH who I've been with for just over 4 years

It wasn't very romantic or anything, he asked me on the saturday morning if I wanted to go out and pick my engagement ring (eek!) so we went and brought it and then in the car on the way back I got so excited I made him propose to me there and then!

So now I'm in full out wedding planning mode

We're thinking of a September wedding next year...if finances etc allow Hopefully we'll be having a church/village hall wedding

I know its very premature but I have already brought my dress I knew the one I wanted anyway, so I didn't have to look very much - In the shops its just over 1000 (!) but I was having a browse on Ebay for ideas and I saw the exact dress that I wanted for......95! Brand new! I had to buy it

I went to a shop to try it on (not the one I ordered, but the same design) and I absolutely fell in love with it - I almost cried so now I'm just waiting for mine to arrive!

Sorry about the essay! I'll no doubt update this with my ideas etc as we go along! xxx

Ahh congratulations

We are having a church/village hall wedding.

We started off with a hotel, but for the food alone it was 3000! So although we are not having a sit down meal it means our buffet is only costing 500 max, and thats ordering it from M&S.

I would still have liked a sit down meal, but I thought we can always go out for a meal with close family and friends another time.

I'd love to see your dress, I brought my dress really early, and it has worked out well, you got yourself a bargain!

Thanks guys

Shabutie, I couldn't believe how much hotels were trying to charge for sit down meal/rental of function room! One hotel tried to say they charged 73.50 per head! I was like no chance! Haha

I want to save as much money as I can with the wedding purely because I couldn't justify spending thousands of pounds on one day! I know how special the day is, but I just think the focus should be on what the day represents if that makes sense?

Obviously I don't mean any offence to anyone that does spends loads of money - it's all about personal taste I've attached a pic of my dress for you to have a look at! click me! xxx

Dress is beautiful! Don't worry about being too organised, I had the venue, photographer, videographer and band all booked within a month

Just spend what you are comfortable with - the day will be special whether its 500 or 50, 000

Thankyou I'm in love with the dress

If Matt would help me set a proper date, I would start booking things too! haha but he's dragging his feet a little bit to slow me down

My view exactly It's a special day regardless! xxx

Maybe set up some venue viewing appointments in a couple of weeks? But most of all, just enjoy the newly engaged feeling, it soon disappears with all the stress of wedding planning!

I've already viewed a couple of village halls lol in my defence I have seen both of them before, I just wanted to refresh my memory :P

I'm also going to speak to a priest on friday, just to get some info on what we need to do in order to get married there
