The Wedding Venue I Always Dreamed Of

March 23, 2019 No Comments

Your wedding undoubtedly should be one of the happiest and most memorable days of your life. One of the most important things couples probably decide on first is the wedding venue. Choosing the perfect setting to celebrate their special day.

I actually got married in 1995 and I never had the big white wedding. I convinced myself back then that I didn’t want to go down the traditional route, with a white dress, church ceremony etc. Instead, we decided to have a very low key Registry Office ceremony. Only very close friends and immediate family were invited. There was absolutely nothing wrong with the day but it didn’t feel as special as it could have. I barely remember anything about my wedding day.

Now I’m older, I do actually regret that decision and wish I had opted for a big wedding, with the white dress and bridesmaids and of course a beautiful wedding venue too.

Pick A Date


The first thing I would definitely choose to do, is to pick the date – obviously! You can’t exactly plan anything till the date for the wedding is decided upon. Ideally, I’d love a late Spring or early Summer wedding. All the lush greenery and flowers, along with the blue skies just look so beautiful on wedding photos. I actually got married a week before December the first time. It was such a wet, cold and dreary day. Definitely not stuff that dreams are made of, that is for sure!

Keep your options open though for dates, as your first choice may not be available. This might depend on how far in advance you will be booking though. To have a big dream wedding, it’s not going to be something you can plan in six months.

 

Budget


Ahhh, the budget. Yes, before contemplating anything else it’s best to work out how much you want to spend on your dream wedding. Figure out how many guests you’ll have, how much you want to spend on the venue, photographer, catering, flowers, wedding dress etc  There are so many things to budget for, it can be easy to forget some of the smaller things.

You may want to hire a wedding planner to take all the stress off your hands. If like me, you enjoy list making and planning, it may be something you will actually enjoy.

Decide On A Wedding Venue


The wedding venue is so very important I think. It has to be somewhere that is going to make your day even more special. If you choose to have your wedding in the warmer months you might want an outside venue. Personally, I would love to have a civil ceremony at my chosen wedding venue too. Somewhere that offered both indoor and outdoor venues, would be ideal.

I have to admit that I really love the idea of a big country house, set in gorgeous surroundings. It would just be so beautiful! Somewhere like Botleys Mansion would be absolutely amazing! I think it would make the day feel quite magical to get married in such a beautiful setting.

It definitely appeals to the little girl inside me who has always wanted to be a princess for a day! That is the only time I will ever admit that as I am definitely not a typical ‘girly girl’. A place like that though would make my dream come true.

It’s really never too late to have the wedding of your dreams though. No matter your age or even if you have been married before. You could even renew your vows and get to have that special day if you feel you missed out on it the first time.

Why not make new memories and have the wedding you have always dreamed of at your ideal venue!

  • So when I purchased the Honey Potion from @Beautylish about 3 months ago, I also purchased these bad boys from @goodmolecules too! 😀⠀ ⠀ I haven't cracked them open yet though as I already have a few serums/oils in rotation at the moment. So, I don't want to waste products by opening these yet.⠀ ⠀ This is the Super Seven set & cost me $56!!! For seven products - can you believe that!? 😲⠀ ⠀ These are the seven products you get:⠀ ⠀ 💠Hyaluronic Acid Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ 💠Niacinamide Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ 💠Overnight Exfoliating Treatment Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ 💠 Squalane Oil Size: 13 ml / 0.44 oz⠀ 💠 Super Peptide Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ 💠 Ultra-Hydrating Facial Oil Size: 13 ml / 0.44 oz⠀ 💠 Wake Up Eye Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ ⠀ I'm really looking forward to using them - trust me it's killing me not to open them already!⠀ ⠀ Since I purchased these they have actually brought out four more products, which I will aim to purchase at some point in the future. Well, depending on how I get on with these, that is. ⠀ ⠀ Have you tried anything from @GoodMolecules yet?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ . ⠀ #instaskincare #skincarecommunity #skincareroutine #skincarebloggers #goodmolecules #beautylish ⠀ #skincarejunkies #skincareblogger #budgetbeauty #budget skincare #affordableskincare #theinstagramlab #livecolorfully #flashesofdelight⠀#skincareobsessed ⠀ #skincareaddict #glowyskin #clearskin #dryskin #discoverunder20k #howyouglow #skincarelover #iloveskincare #365inskincare #palmbffs #facialserum #facialoil
  • Happy Friday everyone!! ⠀ ⠀ I know a lot of people have to have their coffee first thing before they get going for the day. ⠀ ⠀ Me? Well, this is exactly how I like my coffee in the morning- in my face scrub! 😛⠀ ⠀ Truly love this @upcirclebeauty Face Scrub. (Citrus Blend) ⠀ ⠀ Smells amazing, leaves my face clean, soft, moisturised and gently exfoliated - not tight and dry like some products can. 😍⠀ ⠀ Such a great way to recycle the coffee grounds too. 😀⠀ ⠀ What's your favourite exfoliator to use? ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #coffeescrub #veganfacescrub #scrub #petitejoys #theeverygirl #theinstagramlab #instaskincare ⠀ #organicskincare #cleanbeauty #upcircle #upcirclebeauty #repurposed #repurpose #upcycle #upcycled #circularskincare #circulareconomy #coffeeskincare #caffeinatedskincare #sustainablecosmetics #coffeewaste #coffeerecycling #cleanskincare #veganskincare #greenskincare #skincarecommunity #plantbasedbeauty #plantbasedskincare #skincareroutines #skincarebloggers
  • I'll admit I am a sucker for a good face mask. Even more so if it's a honey one. 🍯 😍⠀ ⠀ This @farmacybeauty Honey Potion had been on my wishlist since I first came across it on Instagram ages ago. All I can say is it did not disappoint. Actually it did, in fact, exceed my expectations! ⠀ ⠀ I love watching the honey gooey texture change from a golden hue to creamy white when you start to massage it into your skin as it gets warm. ⠀ ⠀ After 10-15 mins it's ready to rinse off. Personally, I prefer to gently remove with a damp cloth, then pat dry.⠀ ⠀ My face always feels so very soft afterwards. It's suitable for all skin types but especially those that are dry, dehydrated and dull, which is pretty much my skin all over. I do feel like my skin looks more radiant as well as feeling nice and hydrated after using Honey Potion. ⠀ ⠀ I'd like to also mention the packaging, which is just beautiful - and I adore that the spatula/lid is magnetic too! 😊⠀ ⠀ This was a bit of a luxe purchase for me as I ordered it from Beautylish, along with some other skincare goodies that I wanted to try. I loved that I could split the total into 3 payments with them too. 🙂⠀ ⠀ Have you tried Honey Potion or anything else from @farmacybeauty?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #honeypotion #farmacybeauty #skincare #skincareroutine #skincarecommunity #skincarejunkie #skincareproducts #skincareobsessed #skincarenatural #skincareluxury #facemask #facemasks #farmacy #propolis #royaljelly #honey
  • {gifted} I don't really like wearing foundation so this 'Feel Like Honey Moon Skin Base' by @touchinsol_ldn is perfect for me. It's not only a great base to use under your makeup but also makes your skin glow all on its own! 😍⠀ ⠀ I happily wear this without feeling the need to put foundation on, or even a BB or CC cream. ⠀ ⠀ Of course, it is a honey & collagen-based primer with a host of natural extracts & vitamins, so no wonder it makes the skin look, radiant and, for want of a better word, bouncy! 🍯 ⠀ ⠀ What's your favourite primer/base to wear alone or under makeup?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #touchinsol_ldn #mmcl_ldn #primer #skincare #theinstagramlab #howyouglow #discoverunder20k #koreanskincare #rasianbeauty #koreanbeauty #kskincare #asianbeauty #skincareaddict #instaskincare #theblogtribe ⁣#화장품그램 #ABMhappylife #화장품추천 #스킨케어⁣ #abcommunity #abbeatthealgorithm #kbeauty #abskincare #abblogger #instablogger #kbeautyblogger #petitejoys #theeverygirl #touchinsol⠀
  • {prgifted} Perfect for #pinkwednesday #onwednesdayswewearpink are this @neekskinorganics vegan moisturiser and vegan cleanser. They have been a dream to use.
