It occurred to me over the weekend that there was only two weeks until we get hitched...I'm not sure how it snuck up on me so fast but now as I write this there is a little over one week until we get hitched. Oh my gawd!
I'm sort of flit between being super laid back/excited/nervous/stressed and then laid back again in a weird circle about ten million times a day. I don't think I'm as stressed out as a lot of brides sometimes are, our wedding is going to be super low key affair and I'm hoping that will mean we are more chilled too. That being said I want it to look pretty and let's face it I want to look pretty too.
Last minute things occurred to me this week like 'maybe I should have some kind of clutch because what will I do with my phone' so this beautiful thing* was ordered. I'm hoping I haven't forgotten anything else!
A couple of friends contacted me to ask when there invites would ever arrive and I realised they are still on my mantle piece..things like that. It's all good really.
Clearly I'm not about to show you my dress but I thought I could show you my shoes and accessories. I went with Swedish Hasbeens for my shoes, they are the same pink as my bouquet which is being felted by my talented pal Lizzie who is also making my fascinator and the boys button holes. I didn't want a big heel and I know I can dance the night away in clogs!
I feel so lucky that so many of our friends are sharing their talents and making bits for our special day. My friend Little Birdie is making our cake toppers and my friend Jess is making the flowers for the tables!
I think because everything is going to be handmade, borrowed, low key and fairy simple there won't be too much to worry about on the day. I'm sure once we've got the official getting married bit over with we can relax a bit.
We got these 'push pop' confetti's from Henbox* I'd seen them in online stores before but they had always been in the US and the one thing I've learnt from this whole arranging a wedding experience is don't buy things from the states you will get hit with SO much custom tax it is unreal..and yes I got my dress from the states *sigh*. Anyway, you can buy them in the UK from these guys which is a relief. Also genuine question how much confetti is too much/too little?
I feel like there is SO much good stuff you can arrange and buy and make for a wedding it's become a bit overwhelming. Maybe because I've arranged a wedding in three months it's a little intensified but I've decided to not check my Pinterest board anymore as this is it, a week and a bit to go, eek!
