As a real-life Bride-to-Be, planning her real-life, actual wedding, I wanted a place where I could document the journey for you to follow along with me. This isn't the place for me to give advice, or discuss the pros and cons of A-line dresses, or buffets, but just a small part of the internet where I can write, uncensored about the stresses that come with planning a wedding. And how I am coping with them (spoiler alert - lots of wine!).

So when it came to planning for the wedding, I figured my vision of a beautiful, outside, rustic-themed ceremony was pretty low-maintenance too...
How bloody wrong I was!Read More
