Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I suppose you could call it the 'Bridget Jones' Diary' (for the wedding industry); I've created it really as a way for me to vent about my upcoming nuptials without boring my nearest and dearest about things that, well, just aren't that important to them but are all I seem to think about now I'm a fully fledged member of the Engagement Club.

I'm Married! My Final Post....

I had hoped to have been able to have done a few blog posts between the last time I posted and now but in all honesty, I Just couldn't find the time, what with getting married and going on honeymoon and all.

But here I am.  Today I write as a married woman.  Mrs S!

The day was everything I'd hoped it would be and we've had lots of lovely comments from our guests to say how much they enjoyed themselves.  My mm was hypnotised, we had 3 first dances and our vicar even joked during the ceremony how well organised I was as he'd counted up 28 or so (I'm quite sure he was exaggerating) emails from me.  But that's just how I roll.

We haven't got our photos back from the talented James Green and his assistant Merika just yet but we've been told to expect them shortly.  I will however show you the sneaky peek picture he sent to us as a teaser.

And just another one we received from a family member as we were announced husband and wife!

Our honeymoon was fabulous.  We went to Lapland and stayed in Jeris in a little log cabin which looked out over the frozen lake.  We went husky dog sledding, snowmobiling, ice fishing (Mr S' choice), skiing and had a picnic under the stars in front of a fire.  It was bliss.  To top it off, we managed to see the Aurora Borealis two out of the four nights we were there.  We were very lucky as some of the other couples didn't see them once.  

As it was the end of the season over there, it was very quiet and there were only 2 other couples that we saw and a family of 3 who we saw twice.  Other than the staff, that was pretty much it!

Now, this is going to be my last post on here as I only started writing this to stop myself from ranting everything wedding related at my friends and family for two years since our engagement.   And now I'm married so I suppose the intention has been fulfilled!

Thank you very much for reading over the last 2 years, whether it's been because I was stumbled upon by chance, maybe you read a few posts every so often or those of you who have followed the whole blog.  

I have just read a few posts back and those little things that I got stressed out about or those things that niggled me or made me anxious just seem silly now.  If you're a bride to be, I can honestly say, don't let the little things (and even some of the things you think are a huge deal) get to you.  I know it will, because I was given the same advice and so feel a bit hypocritical that I'm writing this telling other brides the same thing.  But on the day, as long as you are married to your beau and you have smiles on your faces, that's all that will matter.

Thank you again, sincerely, for reading.

Love, Mrs S  xxx

Four Weeks And Counting...

*Throws hand dramatically up towards forehead* Oh, I honestly don't know where the time has gone!  I've been super busy recently with starting my business, family life and attending meetings here there and everywhere, I've literally had no spare time to sit and write.  I can't lie; I have really missed it.  Gone are the days that I could sit and tap away on my netbook blogging to those who read it, but I've managed to get to a point now where I'm able to take a cheeky little 15 minutes or so for myself and update you on our wedding plans.  It is what this blog was started for in the first place after all.

Four months to go! Update...

So with just over four months to go to the big day, I've kick started again with all things wedding related so thought I'd give a little update on my progress.

My bridesmaids dresses arrived from Priddi.  They are lush, worth the money and both girls love them - result!
