Listography: My Wedding!

With the Royal Wedding drawing closing Kate Takes 5 this week gets us thinking about our own weddings! We had a very strict budget for our wedding of £5000 which sounds a lot but doesn’t go that far. Excluding the honeymoon we managed to keep to this budget and I felt we were very clever with some things but on reflection I worry that maybe it looked a little cheap and chavy but still, it was one of the best days of my life! So on reflection what five things would I change if I could repeat the day again….and no, one of them is not the groom!



So the things I would change are…


1. Not losing my engagement ring on the morning of the wedding!


I took if off the night before so my auntie could spray tan me in the garden (classy I know) and it was put on the kitchen shelf. In the morning, no where to be seen. We searched everywhere, and I was so calm on the day that it really didn’t bother me (I was so excited about the day), but my Mum was so distressed and upset bless her and I feel that it may have ruined her day a little bit, so I would not want that to happen again for her.


(On a side note, we managed to claim on insurance and two months later My husband and I were away for a family holiday and without me knowing he had managed to get another of the exact same ring and proposed to me a second time. Very strangely and without planning our song that was our first dance was playing in the background! )


2. Keep my veil on


When do you ever get to wear a veil other than your wedding day? I took it out after the meal and I really regret that. It looked so lovely I wish I had kept it in all day!


3. Have a meet and greet line up


You are so swept away with the day, that I think there may have been some people that I didn’t even get chance to speak too! If we had had a meet and greet I would have had chance to say hello to everyone!


4. Not arrived early!


Brides are supposed to be fashionably late and me in my excitement left too soon and when we arrived they were still ushering people into the church! I wish we had done a lap and made them wait a little longer to build the suspense!


5. The wasps and hornets!


We got married at the end of July and on the day there was a massive heat wave! For some strange reason we had an attack of hornets and wasps and people wre leaping about all over the place. I am petrified of wasps and they were going in my veil and until it calmed down which was straight after the service it was a bit squealing and jumpy!

    If it makes you feel better 'not having a meet and greet line up is on my list! – Good idea in theory but it took forever and felt really false, I'd rather have spent the time talking to people I wanted to than kissing random family members and being polite!

    Man do i remember those hornets! they were all in our flowers!! such a fun day though, so glad you asked me to be your bridesmaid :) x

  • Emma

    You looked beautiful! I had a tight budget for our wedding too, I planned it all myself from start to finish, but I hope I wasn't a bridezilla! The only thing I would change or wish I had done was to have fairy lights in the tree outside the venue! Small thing I know…perfect day!

  • jennie

    You looked beautiful! Good tip about the veil, I am currently planning to take mine off after the ceremony but might keep it on a little longer now x

  • would like to be a yummy mummy

    Gorgeous picture. Shame about the wasps and hornets :-)

  • Mummy and the Beastie

    Oh god losing your ring! I always dreaded that happening! You did well to get through the day but then there is so much going on you kind of get swept away with everything. You look absolutely gorgeous too…what a lovely couple :-) xx

  • multiplemummy

    Reading it back through it does sound horribel but I promise it really was a fabulous day! x

  • Mrs E

    You look absolutely beautiful hun. I can't believe you lost your engagement ring and were calm. I would have been a wreck!x

  • mummyneeds

    Great list and lovely photo. Such a shame about the wasps but at least you had great weather for your photos!

  • EmVi

    I definitely wouldn't have liked all those wasps. The picture is beautiful though.

  • Kate

    Don't you look gorgeous! And I can't believe you lost your engagement ring that day…though it turned into a lovely story :) Thanks for sharing!

  • overthehillmum

    lol I'm just imagining the spray tanning in the garden. Oh and I read that you wished you've done a lap dance to make them wait a bit longer lol.

    Weddings eh? As long as it all works out – you look gorgeous….Main thing I would change for the day is ..making sure my (NZ) husband had the right visa! We realised just before the wedding that he did not have one…aaarghhh…so I had to have a pretend wedding, and get legally wed in my living room at a later date… I wrote about it here if you fancy a laugh..(cry!)http://thecreativeshed.blogspot.com/

    I lost my engagement ring a couple of days before our wedding. We turned the bins upside down. After the 2nd time of the grim task of going through the kitchen bin, someone found it – I was so relieved!

    I did have a meet and greet line up, it took hours and I think guests got bored!

  • A Farmer's Wife

    Loved the spray tan in the garden story! You looked beautiful.
