Marrying a Vampire


I’m not the biggest fan of the Twilight saga, but with a wedding featuring in the latest movie I am inclined to take notice.

I actually lasted twenty minutes into the first film, the hormones and teen angst made me reach for my remote. I didn’t enjoy it when I was a teenager and don’t really want to watch films with it in, but the films became very popular.

The only thing is, would you really want to marry a vampire?

I Wouldn’t

For this discussion, lets assume vampires are real. Right, got that out the way, now lets remember that vampires are human predators.

Days to Go: 10

On Top of It All : –)

The world mainly. I’m so happy, so excited, so over the moon! Everything is progressing nicely and it’s all coming together!

It is really hard to realise that our wedding is only 10 days away. I can still remember telling everyone on Facebook that our wedding was 300 days away! It feels like yesterday!!

So much has happened since over the last few years: lots of my friends have got married, lots of my friends have had babies! I started a new job and had an Ofsted. We’ve had our hen and stag do’s and made a few more friends.

The whole experience has been a roller coaster ride and it’s not even finished yet!

I’ll update you with what’s been going on recently.

Just today…

I used Blurb to make a scrap book about our wedding. I included the photos I have of h2b in his suits, me in all the wedding dresses I tried on, photos of my hen do and h2b’s stag do, as a memory of our wedding preparation.

Days to Go: 18

The Countdown Continues

It has been quite a while since my last blog post because we have been so busy! I have a rather busy job as well, so trying to do that and prepare for the wedding is making me super busy!

(The post it notes are so so so true! My colleagues know! lol)

So many things have been done! It’s really exciting!

I can’t believe that it’s only 18 days away! I’m so excited,  I’m going to pop!

H2b and I have been a rather excited team, tackling all our tasks together. H2b is taking over from me when I need to do my day job and we’re working together to see what needs to be done, which is really nice.

It’s a very strange feeling to think I’m going to be a married woman in a few days! I mean, nothing will really change, except my name and my legal status, but it seems like such a huge thing to be married.

We have got loads of tasks for the wedding done….

Your Wedding Dress

To Sell or Not to Sell?

This is a very difficult and personal question: After your wedding, will you sell on your wedding dress?

It an be quite a touchy subject, there are lots of opinions either side of the argument, but which answer is best for you?

This question came up when a friend of mine recently sold her wedding dress. In this economic climate, can we afford not to sell our dresses?

30 Days to Go

Checking the To Do List

As the days are ticking closer and closer to our big day, I’m getting more and more concerned that we have got everything ready.

Like most brides, I want our wedding to be perfect. I don’t want anything to go wrong or be forgotten, so with a month to go, I am checking and rechecking my To Do List.

Going over my To Do list really helps me to calm down and realised that everything we have to do is manageable.

A Guest Book

Little Messages for the Bride and Groom

I’ve been looking for a guest book for our wedding for quite a while. I was after something really different and while wandering around looking for table name stands, I managed to find the perfect one!

guest book

It’s made from wood and has about 80 pages inside. It’s actually really heavy but I really liked it.

Getting the Buggar to Bustle

My Wedding Dress is Awkward

I love love love my dress. Every time I wear it I think it’s more and more beautiful: It squeezes me in, it’s sparkly, it’s got a fantastic skirt (in my opinion), I just think it’s amazing!

The only problem is, can I dance in it?

Every time I went out to look at a wedding dress, the one thing that h2b said to me was, “Make sure you can dance in it.” Now, I have blogged before about how difficult it was to find a wedding dress. I’m going to admit that being able to dance in the dress wasn’t the highest priority after the first 15 dresses.

All I wanted to do at that point was find a dress I liked!
