With less than 2 months to go I wanted to share with you guys a little more about what I have planned for my Big Day. Dave & I are very similiar in nature in our likes and dislikes so we've been lucky to have no difference of opinions on any aspect of our wedding (so far!). With the reception venue and service picked out within a week of getting engaged, way back in 2012! We moved on to the date, I always liked the idea of a spring wedding. Weather here in Ireland is pretty unpredictable all year round so we werent fussed on the middle of the summer as it could rain any day. Spring time is also when all my favourite flowers are in season (if you are a big flower person make sure you check out what flowers are in season on your date before you decide!)
My mum is a wedding florist ( handy eh?!) and I have also been trained as a florist so flowers
are high on the priority list. I use to think I would want all white flowers at my wedding but now that Ive actually thought about it I want all colour. Pastel hues in flowers such as stock, viburnum, astilbe, ranunculus and anemonies will be everywhere!
On to hair! I had a wedding hair trial a while ago and went with a mixed selection of styles Id liked from pinterest. Nothing too sleek or perfect something soft and romantic. The trial was not what I expected it all and the stylist didnt seem to get me or what I was after. I have now decided to get my cut & colourist to put my hair up for my big day he knows what I like and what way I wear my hair so Im happy!
Above are few styles I had pinned on my wedding board on pinterest.
I had a colour range in mind when I went looking for my bridesmaids dresses & even a shape thought of. Finding this was not so easy and I ended up having to alter my ideas. Sometimes having an open mind is better you cant plan everything exactly!
We also have now sent out all our invites and finalised the hotel we will be staying in afterwards. So the big count down is on & I cant wait to share the little details of the day with all you guys afterwards. :) xx
