Our first dance song

Since me and chris met we have had many songs that have kinda grew with our relationship ( i know that makes no sense but you get me) One of the ones that has meant more than any other is Dashboard Confessionals song Stolen. For some people it may not be the most romantic of songs. It says it plain and simple ‘You have stolen my heart’.

Hmmmmmm cake :)

I think picking your cake is one of the funnest things to look for at your wedding :). There are thousands of designs out there and thousands of people to make it for you. The one tip i would strongly recommend is tasting the cake before you order it. I know a lot of couples who have ordered there cake and on the day it wasn’t to nice. 

So here comes the fun part…….What sort of cake will you go for???

A funny one to show your guests your sense of humour?

Again i wanted to include birds in my wedding cake 🙂 i love the two little birds and their crowns on the cake 🙂 Can’t wait to see how it turns out 😀 

What comes next……the guest list?

So you have booked the venue, found your dress, you man his his suit and you will have your big day captured by the best photographer in the world so what comes next.

You need to invite your friends and family. No matter if its a little intimate affair or a huge hollywood wedding its the guests that make your big day even more special. For me my guest list came easily. I have loads of amazing friends and family that have been so supportive to me and chris. 

Once you have your lists for the ceremony and venue you need to get your invites sorted. For my invites i wanted this to be the first idea that the guests get to what our wedding is going to be like. I wanted them to reflect mine and chris’s personality to. 

Luckily i have a wonderful friend John who designs custom wedding invites 🙂

Since i was a little girl i have loved birds. One of the closest people in my life was my lovely Nan, Martha.

My nan passed away almost 2 years ago and i do miss her everyday. She was such a beautiful lady. When i was little she always used to feed her left over toast to the garden birds and tell me all about each type and which was her favourite. She was a huge lover of tea to. In memory of her i had a tattoo designed.

My Nan was also really close to Chris and treated him like he was her own Grandson. So for our invites we wanted to choose something that included a bird theme. My lovely friend john designed the invite above 🙂 (if you do like his designs check out his Facebook :- https://www.facebook.com/BeLiciousDesigns?fref=ts)

I have found some amazing invite designs and if you are on a budget there are loooooooooads of invite templates to design them yourself.  

Some of my favourites include:

More about the bride and groom :D

So more about me and my husband to be. I kind of think of us as the couple from up 🙂 We met because we are both a little strange 🙂 but i would like to think at the end that we both fly away in the house carried by balloons 🙂 Speaking of up, if you love the film as much as me you need to check out this up themed wedding. Far to sweet for words.

We have been together almost 10 years now and we get married on our 10th anniversary. You could say we were childhood sweet hearts and the love keeps growing.

We have a scruffy little pet shih tzu called ralphy. He’s a little bit minging and messy but i wouldn’t change him for the world. 🙂

And thats the basics for now 🙂
