DIY Bride - the diaries

It is 14 months to our wedding day and we have been engaged for 14 months and all that has been booked is our wedding photographer! Which i am so uber excited about!

Time to start planning…..but where do we begin? Being a wedding photographer and attending so many gorgeous weddings really helps me to understand the ins and outs of the day itself BUT before the day……. clueless….i don’t know if there really is a right and wrong way of doing things. I do know that good suppliers get booked up early so if there is a particular thing or person that we definitely want to be apart of the day, then we have to sort that out quickly.

Next stop? Budgets! This is key for us as we have a modest budget and to be honest neither of us really want to spend that much on our wedding day and we don’t feel like we need to either. The day is about us getting married and having some fun with our loved ones. Yes of course, i want it to look lovely but that doesn’t mean spending loads, does it?

So with this in mind, I will be doing as much DIY as possible!! Some people run a mile at this thought, what an awful lot of work to do, but to me this is SO exciting!!  I literally cannot wait to start, and i know i have lots of lovely family and friends who would like to get involved too. =) One friend in particular has even started ahead of me, how amazing are these!? Thank you Helen!
