It’s exciting to be able to say that Sophie is tying the knot this year. And it’s all go. With the honeymoon booked (sounds pure heaven) and the gift list arranged, lots of the fun details are now being arranged. EEkk xo Lou
Five months to go – yippee!
Our 2016 has gotten off to a good start, with Jamie starting – and loving – his new career in teaching. And more good news: one of my bridesmaids, Aisling, has just gotten engaged too, and is excitedly planning her September wedding.
As for our plans, they are slowly coming together. We’ve got the invites – I’ll blog about this next month once I’ve actually sent them – we’ve chosen our menu, and even set up our gift list. And yes, Debenhams did point out I was about three months too early, but never mind…
We also made the most of the January sales by shopping for honeymoon clothing (summer clothing is a bargain when you’re shopping out of season) and even bagging giant-sized tubs of sweets which we plan to decant into jars for each table to enjoy at the reception.
Determined to keep my excitement going for the next five months, we’ve also been researching our honeymoon. We’ll be spending three weeks in Thailand, and after initially being a little daunted about the prospect of Bangkok, I officially can’t wait. We’ve been watching YouTube videos of people visiting elephant sanctuaries in Chiang Mai and lazing on the beaches of Koh Samui and Koh Tao too, and I’m raring to go!
I’m also five sessions into laser hair removal treatment on my underarms, and it’s honestly one of my best investments so far. It’s worked so well, and I’ve never seen my skin look so smooth – I’d definitely recommend it to any bride thinking about it. It barely stings either.
And after a Christmas of excess (hello extra four pounds in weight – I blame the Ferrero Rochers!) I’m back at my Pilates class to make sure I keep in shape. I’ve also taken up some hot yoga classes to see if I can tone up just that bit extra before my first dress fitting in April – a wise decision, seeing as though I can’t seem to stay away from the chocolate…
Lovely to see Lou’s wedding photos on the website too – I hope our big day is as fun-filled as hers looked!
Until next time…
