Finally gotten around to taking some photos of the invitations I designed for a friend – you can see a bit of the construction process and tips here. Taking photos of invitations is hard! I also had to blur out the lovely scripty font I used in the interest of keeping names and details secret. […]

Friend’s Hens

Attended my first hens night ever over the weekend! We started the night at my place with champagne, snacks, photos and games, then went on to dinner, drinks and dancing. A fabulous night was had by all! I blame this wedding obsession for making me go a little over the top with decorations… but they […]

Wedding Acronyms

Does anyone else find the acronyms used on wedding forums and blogs confusing and hilarious? This is pretty much why I’ve decided to avoid using them at all on my blog.

Refining Dress Ideas

Hot Chicks Only, plzkthnx

I don’t have a perfect body. I’m not exactly large either. Just sort of curvy, maybe a little more than I’d like. I’m also very short. I suppose I’m quite ‘normal’, whatever that means. Most people don’t have perfect bodies. With such a large percentage of the populations of countries featured in wedding blogs being […]

Ideas for The Dress

Ah, The Dress! I’m not one of the girls who always fantisised about her wedding dress. I’m definitely not one of the girls who must have a fancy designer dress (although if you are and can afford it, go you!). Since I didn’t really have an specific ideas I was attached to, I figured I’d […]
