Love is in the air…

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% …

Beating The Post Wedding Blues…

‘Bridal Blues’…

So, the wedding is over. You’ve spent months, possibly years, planning, meeting guest demands and keeping on top of a million different suppliers; Now it’s all over…sounds like heaven, right? Sure, the stress has been alleviated and you’re over the moon to be married, but at the same time you can’t help feeling a little bummed that all the excitement, organising and being ‘The Bride’ is over.

I’ve been there and got the t-shirt so thought I’d try to help by passing on a few suggestions to beat the blues…

Don’t feel guilty…

It is perfectly normal to feel sad that your wedding day is over!! You’re entitled to mourn over something that your life has been focused around for the past year, and feeling a tad emotional doesn’t make you any less happy to be married; Just ensure your new husband/wife knows how you feel. Chances are they will probably feel the same!

Find a new hobby…

Whether you’ve discovered a new found love for planning weddings, or realised you’re actually pretty good at crafting, throw yourself head first into it. It will keep your mind occupied and make sure you’re busy. You never know, it might even lead onto a new and fun career change!

Date nights…

Couples time is important …
