10 honest truths of wedding planning

13th January 2017

Wedding planning is a funny ol’ thing and sometimes, you just need to be honest about it all.. SO, here it is – the 10 honest truths of wedding planning..

NOW, I’M JUST BEING HONEST

I am wedding planning and oh my, have I learnt an awful lot about it. It’s something you can google to high-heavens, but never really find the absolute truth. No one really tells you the nitty gritty ins and outs. SO, that’s why I’m sitting in my local cafe with a skinny latte, writing this. I’m about to get truthful.

Of course some of these are a little tongue-in-cheek but I have been loving posts of this nature recently and thought you guys may enjoy, especially as I know some of you are currently wedding planning too! So, here is the 10 honest truths of wedding planning…

ONE

Realising you struggle with booking yourself a taxi, so how the hell are you going to plan a frickin’ wedding?!

TWO

You have to narrow your friends into numbers of importance (to save getting in to ‘extra guest debt’) and it makes you feel really guilty, even about people you don’t like.

THREE

You were never a DIY person… until you saw a ‘wedding’ crate with a £65 price tag. Say WHAT?!

FOUR

The bigger the to-do list grows… so does the appeal of a quick registry office wedding.

FIVE

You have to go and prove you’re marrying for the right reasons but the night before the other half left the toilet seat up (again) so you’re reconsidering it.

SIX

Every wedding dress starts to look the same, it’s all just a big blurry mess of ivory lace, tulle and beading. Also makes you realise how rubbish your cleavage is in ANY strapless number.

SEVEN

Most wedding dress assistants tell you how amazing you look in EVERY SINGLE DRESS (but more so the ones they picked out)

EIGHT

Do I really need to send invites? People know about the wedding, right?!

NINE

You kinda don’t care if your wedding chat is getting boring… it’s super fun and interesting to you (and probably only you…)

TEN

There is a certain “glazed eye” look that your finance gives you every time you mention the words ‘wedding’, ‘married’ ‘you better sort your suit…’

    Can’t tell you how much I relate to number 8, I’m really considering doing an online invite because the hassle of getting everyones addresses and then the cost too! I know people like to keep them as keep sakes though, its a tough one haha!

    My me the hardest part of planning had been the finances. The prices are obscenely when you talk about a wedding.
    So happy this phase is over, I can’t tell you long enough.
    Beautiful photography as always darling!
    Have a great weekend ahead.

    Girl you look absolutely STUNNING in these shots! That dress looks incredible on you! I can only imagine the stress of planning a wedding, a friend of mine got married in December and another friend is getting married in September and even as an onlooker I saw how much planning went into it (and also tears, lots of tears!). Good luck planning your wedding lovely, so happy Amy is doing your hair! 🙂
