Helping my sister plan her wedding is taking over my life! OK, I’m totally kidding, but I have thrown myself wholeheartedly into the process. The first port of call has been finding a suitable venue, and goodness isn’t that bit hard? We’ve been looking high and low for somewhere to host a festival style wedding around Berkshire/ Oxfordshire that doesn’t cost the earth and isn’t already booked up for next Summer and it’s proving tricky, but we’ll get there! I found the whole venue finding thing the hardest part of planning our wedding so I guess nothing’s changed there. If you too are having a venue search nightmare, I feel your pain!
In less stressful news, don’t forgot you have until Sunday to enter to win a pair of tickets to the National Wedding Show in London. The prize also includes VIP access to my Q&A and the meet and greet, plus you’ll get to take home a signed copy of Rock n Roll Bride magazine. All you have to do to enter is comment on the post completing the sentence “I’m a Rock n Roll Bride because…” easy!
I hope you’ve had a good week. Here are some extra lovely things to occupy your brain for a while…
