That lace looks so pretty 😍

It is so beautiful. I really cannot wait to get my veil. My only concern now is that it is going to be heavy as it’s a one tier fully edged lace veil and that I won’t be able to have the hairstyle I am hoping to have. 



I had my hair and makeup trial today. It went very well. I’ve decided on an elegant updo and natural makeup. Was wearing individual lashes but had to abandon them as couldn’t wear my glasses. We also tried half up/down but that really didn’t suit me. It felt very real today.

I also found my dress and now currently trying to work out how to pay for it! It’s a Mori Lee design called ’Keely’ it’s absolutely beautiful and everything I wanted! I will be ordering in the coerect size and will get it altered down. I’m done stressing myself over my diet!

My veil is nearly complete and it will be with me on Wednesday. I can’t wait.


A few updates on the wedding front but will post about them later but now I am getting ready to go and re try my dress and order it. Excited!



I went back to the bridal shop (not the original one where my first dress was from) to retry on the dress I loved. I still loved it and I have now ordered it! It arrives in August. The dress had only been in store for 4 days and it was one of those ‘it looks awful on the hanger’ type dresses and was a bit big. I am worried about not wearing a bra in this dress but they have said that they can add extra boning and padding on the bust to give more support as I am not blessed in being perky 😂

Here is the dress. It’s by Mori Lee.

Following on from florist gate she has agreed to look at our centrepieces as well as our other flowers. She has agreed in principle to let us have different and cheaper centrepieces as long as we still plan to decorate the staircase. We are planning to BUT she will have to definately change to the cheaper option centrepieces because me getting a new dress has completely tapped out the budget. We’re meeting her next week at the venue so we shall see what happens.

My veil has arrived from Blossom & Bluebird and it’s absolutely beautiful, heavy but beautiful! It’s currently hanging up in a veil bag. I’ll try and get a good picture of it and post it.

RSVPs are slowly trickling in, just want them all to be back now so that we can send the second round of invites out.

I am not sure as to whether I am going to continue my planning thread or write a report as I feel like I am talking to myself sometimes and I get a little disheartened at times. We shall see......

So happy it’s all coming together for you. Love your hair like that. Enjoy trying your dress on again today and placing the order, very exciting! 

Thank you. Going to get her to put the bun slightly higher as I don’t want my veil to fall out from underneath it as it’s very heavy!


I wouldn’t worry about talking to yourself! I think most people just read on the run and not necessarily comment! I don’t comment much but I love reading all the planning threads and reports. Hardly anyone has commented on mine but I’ll still keep with it as I’m doing it for me rather than other people. I also think more people get interested the closer it gets to the big day!! 

So don’t be disheartened, I always read yours when it’s updated. Dress looks fab! Glad the florist is starting to be a bit more helpful!! 


Please carry on this planning thread!!! I read the whole thing in one go and was really sad to read that you might stop!

I sometimes feel the same about the planning thread. You see some people writing loads of comments on others and then you think ‘oh mine must be boring ‘, but actually like others have said, it will be nice to look back and become all nostalgic 😊


Your new dress is beautiful, lots of people are reading your thread please keep posting.




Well I have decided to carry on my planning thread as it will be something to look back on 😁

Me and H2B have a jammed packed Sunday with wedding things at the venue. First off we have our engagement shoot with our photographer which we are excited for, secondly we are meeting our venue stylist to dress tables and chairs and decide on our final look and thirdly we have a meeting with our florist to go over everything and to rework the budget so that we can have our stair buying another dress has meant that we have to jig some things to keep us on track with all the final payments.

My MOH has decided to take a step back from the wedding. It has left us in the lurch slightly because she was meant to be coming to all our outstanding meetings etc and now that’s all up in the air. I haven’t contacted her and left her to it. She would kindly take us to the venue etc and we would repay her by going out for dinner etc and paying. She said she is still going to be part of the day but she wasn’t specific as to what that means. She is also planning my hen party 3 weeks before the wedding but now I am not sure if that’s happening. She said the stress of being involved in my wedding has put a strain on her marriage and kweping her from her children. I’ve made it clear since day one that I won’t plan anything that will clash with her work/family/life. Weddings bring out people true colours 😟

My veil is hanging up in its bag. I haven’t been able to get a decent picture of it without taking it out of its bag and I just don’t want to do that because I don’t want to get it dirty.

The dress regrets are back with my new dress. It’s mainly because it’s an illusion back and I have GG cup books which need a lot of support. I know hey said they will add boning and cups to the dress but I am worried that it won’t be enough! Plus I really want a belt but can’t find anything suitable because my dress is very blingy!

Here is a Mori ale belt that I love which is on a dress with the same lace/appliqué/beading as my dress. Only issue is that it’s £225, way too much for me!
