I’ve had October 21st 2015 noted in my diary for a while now… why? Because it’s Back to the Future day! Yep, today is the actual day that Marty goes forward to in Back to the Future Part 2. Where the hell my flying cars at?
The Back to the Future series are my favourite movies of ALL TIME. One of the first gifts Gareth ever bought me was a diecast Delorean, the recessional song at our wedding was The Power of Love and I’m pretty sure can quote all three movies word for word.
So of course I couldn’t let this momentous day go by without a nod to the greatest movies ever made. Here are 15 awesome BTTF inspired wedding ideas from me to you!

Engagement rings can be pretty spendy if you go down the diamond, gold or platinum route. But limited funds shouldn’t mean you can’t get engaged! Rings made of cheaper, but just as beautiful, materials are more popular than ever these days.

When I was at London bridal fashion week I was thrilled beyond belief to see so many designers offering separates. Don’t get me wrong, I love a beautiful wedding dress, but I completely adore the idea of walking down the aisle in a skirt and top combo.
You can mix and match styles and really make your wedding day look your own. In fact, this year there are separates to suit every type of bride.
