It’s A Hen Thing! (Part 1)

It’s six weeks to go until the big day and the next biggest thing just happened, the Hen Party! I had the most amazing day and the effort put in was totally unexpected. We started at our house where all the ladies met up for a few pre drinks. While we were waiting we got little goodie bags filled with willy straws, dares, shots and bubbles! Each bag even had my name and the details on it. Up until this moment I didn’t know what the plans were for the day, so the girls put together a little itinerary for me to read out. I finally knew what was happening and I couldn’t be more excited! We downed the rest of the drinks and jumped into the taxi. First stop, The Social in Glasgow for a Cocktail Making Class. I’ve never been a heavy partier or drinker so this was perfect for me! We were split into two booths, given a fab selection of nibbles and got to make 2 cocktails each. I don’t think …

My Wedding Anxiety

For all those brides to be out there, this ones for you. I don’t normally express how much anxiety my upcoming wedding gives me. I feel like you have to be seen as constantly excited, but it’s so wrong. Since I hit the 1 year to go mark by anxiety & stress levels have went through the roof. I want to be excited. I am excited. But, you just can’t help thinking about all the tiny negative aspects of it. I don’t come from a mega rich family so, it takes a lot of hard work to save money to pay for things. Don’t get me wrong, our families are saving hard too and if it wasn’t for there help we probably still wouldn’t have enough to get married. I just hate how much pressure weddings put on people, the real meaning behind a wedding often gets lost by overwhelming anxiety of how you’re going to afford everything. For instance, you order a special birthday cake and it won’t cost you more than Β£100 ( …

Wedding Ring Shopping

I still can’t believe Ross and I have been together for 9 years, NINE. Where has the time gone? I feel like the older I get the quicker my life goes. We decided this year would be a relatively quiet anniversary, with a wedding coming up we are trying to save as much as we can (sometimes!!). This year we went and bought our wedding rings. What girl wouldn’t love that as an anniversary present??? I think I was more excited for this than I was when I went dress shopping. Diamonds are a girls best friend after all. We were quite lucky that when Ross bought my engagement ring he got given a 15% discount code for wedding rings. I know it doesn’t sound a lot, but believe me it really does. Once again, I totally underestimated how much our wedding rings would cost. Anyway, it’s a deal that Chisholm Hunter do, but I’m sure many other jewellers will do something similar. I had been looking forward to this day all week and it …
