How to make the most of wedding planning over Christmas…

If you get a Christmas break, it’s a rare chunk of time off that you’re almost legally required to spend majoritively on the sofa in your pyjamas. This means it can seem like an amazing time to get a whole host of wedding planning done without any interruptions, pesky distractions or time constraints. However, it’s worth considering taking a break from the wedding things over the festive season, so here’s how to make the most of wedding planning over Christmas by doing the least.

Spend time with your friends and family…

First and foremost, spend the festive season focusing on friends and family. If they’re invited to the wedding, it’s probably (and should be) because you love their company, so why deprive yourself of that very thing?

Well Christmas is just around the corner, and rather than risk the bun fight of the shopping malls why not create some homemade presents this year! I know that the phrase ‘homemade’ can conjurer up images of sub-standard gifts, when I was a child I made peppermint creams every year, they were neon green and a variety of unrecognisable shapes, but a homemade gift can be beautiful and delicious.
I have been making Irish cream for many years and I have to say it’s one of the most gorgeous drinks I have ever quaffed. It brings to mind the nectar of the gods because they surely would be tempted by such a rich creamy chocolaty alcohol fueled tipple.
This recipe for Irish cream was given to me about 25 years ago by a vicar, (so surely it is blessed) and has been made nearly every year since. It always goes down a storm and, even if you are not a fan of the commercial stuff, I promise, you will love this. It is so easy to make, taste like heaven, and you must keep the biggest bottle for yourself.
