Love is in the air…

If you’ve found yourself on this post then chances are you’ve just said YES! Congratulations!

So, what now!? With all the excitement of getting engaged, usually comes a truck load of stress too. To help you out, we’ve got some top tips to make the most of your engagement, how to get ahead with your wedmin, and tackling the finer details…

Questions, questions, questions…

Before you’ve even started showing off your ring the questions will come flooding in… ‘Have you set a date?’…’Am I invited?’…’How did he propose?’…Everyone around you will be super excited so get ready for your engagement to be the topic of conversation!

If you don’t want to give too much away, or you haven’t made any decisions yet, come up with a blanket statement to use whenever someone comes pestering. Something like “We’re looking at having a Autumn wedding but haven’t worked out the finer details yet” or “We’re just so excited being engaged right now”. They should get the hint!

At this point, hold off inviting anyone or making them part of your wedding party. You can’t really un-ask someone to be your bridesmaid, so really take the time to think about it.

Guest list & budget…

Your guest list will 100% …

Tell us how you met and got engaged…

We met in the glamorous world of Local Authority and were friends (completely innocently) for 4 years. Jody even interviewed me for a job once! Then the stars aligned 3 years ago and we were both single at the same time… the rest is history!

Jody asked me to marry him the day before our 2 year anniversary. It was in our garden and very intimate and personal to us (including the use of the model of a mythical woodland creature that we had seen in a shop in Hackney on one of our many walks on the canal). Jody isn’t very good at being patient so we were only engaged 6 months before the big day.

Was your favourite part of the day?

The ceremony – it meant the world!

How was your day unique?

We wanted a small and intimate wedding with just our families there. It was also very important to us that the wedding was local to us and everything
