Hannah…

The 2016 wedding season is here (already!?), and that date that seemed a long way off is rapidly approaching – trust me, I know!

With less that 2 months to go it’s safe to say there have been moments off stress, pure-panic, excitement and possibly some teeny tiny Bridezilla moments (Sorry, but whoever thought getting RSVP’s back on time was such a hard task!?)

When you initially start your wedding planning journey, you get caught up in that whirlwind of excitement when visiting venues, choosing vendors, trying on dresses – but eventually you realise it all needs to be pulled together and many of the important tasks must wait until the end.
