A Year To Go Before I Say I Do

In just under a year I will be getting married! Last June we got engaged and booked our venue and it felt like it was ages away, I can't believe how fast the past year has flown by and I bet in no time at all it will soon be June 2019 and my big day will be here. Now that it is less than a year to go I have most definitely had an 'Oh my gosh this just got real' moment. 

When we got engaged last year we quickly booked the venue and registrar and then kind of sat back and though we have ages to plan everything. I am kind of regretting that laid-back attitude now if I am honest. We do have a lot of the 'big' things booked like the venue, the registrar, a photographer, DJ, cake maker and hairdresser. However, we still have so much to still book, organise and save for.


Apart from paying deposits, we haven't saved anything yet (thank god the other half has just started a better-paid job), we still have to find florists and plan room decor and stationery. Most important of all I still have to find a dress, I was putting off dress shopping as I planned on losing weight, well that hasn't happened - surprise surprise. I honestly am starting to feel a bit overwhelmed by it all if I am honest. I think my problem is that I am so indecisive, I keep changing my mind all of the time on what I want, totally blaming Pinterest for that as they have so many lush wedding ideas. 

I think the next year will be filled with wedding planning as we have menu tastings to attend, we need to write a guest list, meet with suppliers and plan the day and I need to organise all the finishing touches and get organised. I have started a diet (for the millionth time) today, I better stick to it this time as I want a nice dress and to feel confident on my big day. 

Despite having so much still to do I am feeling excited about the big day and the whole planning process. As silly as it sounds it feels real now that we are on the countdown and I am really looking forward to celebrating with our friends and family. It sounds like such a cheesy thing to say but I feel like this is the start of my happily ever after. I had my eldest when I was only 18 and her dad wasn't the nicest shall we say and I was a single mam for eight years. I dated but nothing serious and I never thought I would get married or have more children and now I am getting married and I do have more children,  I have to pinch myself sometimes that it is real.

So while I may be slightly panicking about getting organised for the big day I am also really excited to start planning and to become a Mrs. So expect lots more wedding updates on here, I am still undecided about setting up a wedding blog, I really want to but I just don't have the time at the moment. Anyway, this is a bit of a rambly post but I just thought I would update on the whole wedding planning (or lack of), I just hope that the weather is as nice next June as it has been recently, Fingers tightly crossed!
