We were pretty adamant that when it came to having a wedding in Antigua, we wanted it to feel as authentic to the Caribbean islands as possible. We knew we wanted jerk chicken for dinner, rum punch to toast our ceremony and steel drums for the evening, because those were the reasons we fell in love with the island to begin with.
Let’s get straight to business and talk about my wedding dress, which I LOVED. I could harp on about this glitzy bad boy forever.
I figured, nearly three months later, it was about time I pulled some wedding posts together as I have so much I want to share. From the all-important outfits to advice I’d give future brides but for now, a selection of my favourite photos from the day itself. Because as cheesy as it sounds, it really was the best day ever.
Let me tell you about the best forty quid I ever spent. Technically it’s £80 but stay with me…
Let’s face it, January is tough. Especially if you’ve given up booze and pizza. I’ve actually done none of those things but am trying to get through the month without spending all money in the second week. Here are a few things that I’ll be doing to keep me going. Go give ’em a try.
I am a massive fan of all things pom pom and tassel related, so it makes perfect sense that I’d want to incorporate them into our wedding somehow.
A couple of weeks ago I finally got round to sending off our wedding paperwork detailing all our wants, I got too excited and sneakily threw in a question about fireworks.
I’ve a very strong feeling that I’m quickly becoming one of those brides-to-be who does nothing but wang on about the boring, minute details of her upcoming wedding. I’ve gone from thinking that I’d never get married, to really caring about every little thing pretty much over night since getting engaged.
