Ok so it’s less than two months to the wedding now, freaking out much??? I count 147 things on my 'to do' list, enough to give me a stroke I think! It’s just been so hard trying to find the time to do anything! So what have I been doing recently? Well mostly chasing up rsvps, a boring ass job!
We've booked a minimoon to London! We can't get much time off work after the wedding due to having to book time for the honeymoon (which is a few weeks after the wedding) yet if we get married on the Sunday we hardly want to return to work on the Monday. We've got the Monday and Tuesday booked off work so we wanted to go somewhere close just for the Monday night so we've booked a night at The hide, a boutique hotel in London. We've also booked tickets to see Agatha Christies, Mousetrap for a Tuesday matinee and we plan to have a romantic dinner at Clos Maggiore, voted the most romantic restaurant in London. It will be a lovely little trip!
Speaking to lovely trips I’ve organised my hen do! I know most brides don't organise their own hen do but my bridesmaids are useless with that kinda thing haha. I've chosen Brighton! There are going to be 10 of us and so far we've booked two nights to stay in the Brighton Albion hotel. Our itinerary is going to go a bit as followed: On the Friday we arrive by train and then head to Komedia for a comedy night. On the Saturday we'll have a chocolaty break at Choccywoccydoodah followed by some kind of activity (yet to be decided). On the Saturday night we're going to go to the Proud Cabaret, we'll have dinner followed by a burlesque show and then a club. On the Sunday we're going to have brunch at a 50's American diner then watch a movie at the old Duke of York cinema before heading home. I cannot wait!!
I've brought some wedding underwear too! When we went to Somerset earlier on this month we stopped on the way back at Bicester Village and I got some D&G underwear and some La Perla underwear. I haven't tried on my dress in a while (I’m avoiding it due to a bit of extra xmas weight) so I’m not sure if I’m going to wear it on the day or put it away for the honeymoon or something but it was nice to treat myself to some fancy underwear.
I've brought all the bits and pieces I need to put together my chalkboard runner! I got the idea from Bridal musings and I think it looks fantastic, apart from a pedestal of flowers we're having no ceremony decoration so this will bring 'us' into the ceremony. Our aisle is 9.5 metres long so I had to buy about 6 rolls of the chalkboard roll but I’m looking forward to seeing it set up!
Hopefully I’ll be able to report soon that the 'to do' list has reduced!
