The countdown is on for the 9th of August this year!
After being engaged for 4 1/2 years it is so nice to be able to tell people to save the date. In December we fell in love with our reception venue, an old house, decorated recently so it's modern with old twists.
A large garden, even when a large marquee is up.
Not too fancy, but fancy enough.
Hopefully a hog roast or a BBQ.
It was a bit hairy trying to find a date to work with the church (for a moment we didn't think we could get one in the summer holidays which is much easier for lots of my family working in schools), every date we had pencilled in was a date the vicars were on holiday, and the 9th they already have a wedding despite only having a few booked all year!
Luckily we could have a 3pm wedding which works well as we may just invite everyone to the reception as there won't be two sittings for food.
Now that both the venues are booked the ball needs to start rolling on everything else...I'm a bit of a last minute organiser so it's much harder for me than it sounds!
Now does anyone have a tip to settle nerves for the big day as I am already getting butterflies!
