Where did you get that dress? {Part 1}

Morning ladies, Aisling here with my first official post as part of Team AnyOtherWedding…I don’t know if it’s my own change in circumstance, that of Miss to Mrs; or that one of my most wonderful friends is about to become a Mummy, or that generally we all seem to be ‘growing up’, but I have [...]

Newly Wed Diaries- the End or the Beginning?

Judging by all of your lovely comments, emails and tweets, you all thought so too. And who am I to argue with a bunch of intelligent, smart, [...]

Wedding panic {continued}

Source I’m pretty sure that this is what the inside of my brain looks like right now. Saturday just gone was officially 8 weeks until The Wedding.

The Newly Wed Diaries

As we get closer and closer to our own wedding, I’ve begun thinking about after the day itself and what the bit after it will be like. You know, the marriage part.  Will being a Mrs feel different to a Miss? (That’s if I decide that I will be a Mrs) Will our relationship change? [...]

Don’t try this at home

I have made a significant wedding related error, and felt it only right to share it with you all. I’m SURE that no-one else will ever do this, as it is SO SO STUPID, but you know, in the interests of public warning, I thought it best to tell you what I we I did. [...]
