Wedding update #1



Our wedding seems to be creeping upon on us! It may be 13 months away but once baby C has arrived its going to fly by! We have the date and venue secured for the 14th May 2016 at Swallows Oast in Ticehurst.





I feel extremely lucky to be getting married in my dream wedding venue, it honestly could not be more perfect. However Im really beginning to feel unorganised and been such an organised person its stressing me out!

I know exactly what i want. I have chosen wedding dress styles, bridesmaid dresses, cake design and wedding decor all thanks to Pinterest, I just haven't got round to doing anything about it yet! I currently can't go wedding dress shopping due to my growing baby bump but I'm praying i get back to my normal size ASAP so I can start trying on different dress styles. 

The colour theme is going to be baby pink...of course! I want baby pink bridesmaid dresses, and pink flowers everywhere... even on the cake! I am having a white Porsche as my wedding car with pink ribbon and I'm going to make sure Baby C has pink on him somewhere! 

I really feel like I need to get the photographer organised as they get booked up so quickly but I'm so extremely fussy. Seriously, who knew there were so many wedding photographers out there!? For me, the wedding photographer is such an important part of the day and I'm therefore not setting a budget. I will find someone who I truly believe will capture all the best moments from the day regardless of the price! I'm actually having two photographers but one is a very close family friend!

We are looking at booking the honeymoon next month, as soon as travel agents bring out brochures for May 2016! However we cannot decide where to go! We are looking to go the Monday after the wedding and of course taking baby C with us so the hotel needs to be bubba friendly as well as perfect for a honeymoon! Any suggestions would be amazing!

I have chosen the cutest invitations from notonthehighstreet.com! I cannot wait to send these out, it will suddenly feel so real! We are currently thinking about having a big hog roast, a bouncy castle and a variety of games! We are really looking at making it a big party with lots of champagne and something for everyone to remember as a special day, not just us!

I have so many DIY small touches which with the help from family and friends we can make ourselves to ensure we have the most beautiful wedding day!

We still have so many important things to consider such as timings, the registrar & Im struggling to decide whether we should have a DJ or a live band... I love the idea of having a live band although they appear to be a lot more costly than a DJ!

The best part about our venue is the flexibility of it all. Hopefully been May we will have a lovely summers day so hope to get married outside and be able to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. However if not the inside of the barn is just as beautiful...so either way i am happy! 

I basically just cannot wait to become Mrs Carrick for real, Counting down the months, weeks and days!
