As the cost of weddings always seems to be rising, many couples are choosing to wait until later in their lives to get married.

Why travelling to find designer wedding dresses is a great idea

There are lots of reasons why a bride-to-be would choose to travel across the country to try on designer wedding dresses in stylish boutiques but the best reason is a chance to enjoy the day with close family and friends. The process of finding a dream wedding dress is relatively straightforward but it can be time consuming which means that by travelling to another town or city may help focus the bride’s attention on the type of dress that best suits their body shape and the wedding venue itself.

7 useful wedding money savers

There are varying results when it comes to research, but having looked at a few sources, I was astonished to find that the average cost of a UK wedding is now somewhere between £20,000 to £25,000. Dependent on location, that’s almost the equivalent of a down payment on a decent house! Not that I’m trying to undermine the importance of one of the most memorable day of our lives, nor advocating that you should make painful sacrifices for it in the name of money. But, suffice it to say, it’s clear that costs can spiral, and that a few cunning tricks to trim fat off… [Read More]

Today is our fourth year wedding anniversary

Who would have thought that this day would come. The day that my husband, Nigel and I got married four years ago. People said we wouldn’t last, but I think it’s fair to say that love has proven those people wrong. We’re still just as much in love now as we were when we first met. We’ve been through a lot together and we’re always there together. Standing with one another. We now have beautiful twin girls who are nearly four years old. It’s amazing to think that four years ago today, they were at our wedding. They hadn’t been… [Read More]

It's Wedding Season!

Aside from my own wedding two years ago, I’ve never actually been to any other weddings as an adult. I vaguely remember going to a few when I was a child, but it seems that everyone I know goes to hundreds of weddings of a year! My sister who blogs at Two Under Two is getting married next month and I’m one of four bridesmaids. I’m the only adult bridesmaid as the other three as my girls and my niece. My bridesmaids dress has arrived, as have the other bridesmaids dresses and I’ve not long met my sister for her very… [Read More]

Wedding Party Dresses

I love a wedding! The last wedding I went to was mine and the time before that I was a child so I can’t really remember much from it, but I love looking through people’s wedding photo’s and seeing who wore what. When Twin Daddy and I got married I was 7 months pregnant, so my dress had to accomodate my bump, even though I didn’t have a very big bump for twins! I’m attending a wedding next year and it got me thinking about what sort of dress I would wear. I’ve been looking at the lovely Dress First website and have… [Read More]

Unusual Wedding Venues

Twin Daddy and I got married in January 2012, exactly 43 days before our twins were born. It didn’t us long to plan our wedding and within two to three months everything was set.

Twin Daddy and I always planned on getting married and I really wanted to get married before twins were born. I wanted the same surname as them! Twin Daddy and I got married in our local registry office and we… [Read More]
