Planning a Wedding in around 6 Months

This blog title is just giving me anxiety! Where do I even begin, welcome to another episode of Kelsey bites off more than she can chew! The last month or so have been a wild ride, I'll spare you all the details but to summaries a few; Moved jobs, Bought a house and got engaged! It's weird how your life can be so stagnant and then all of a sudden everything comes at once. 



So as stated in the title this will be a very short engagement, for reasons I will divulge at a later date and no it's not because I'm pregnant before we start that rumour mill. So to soothe my panic I thought what a good opportunity to write about myself on the blog for a change, so look out for a weekly segment on wedding progress. This month is entirely dedicated to venue hunting and potential date setting. So far we have visited Healey Barns and The South Causey Inn we still need to go see Slaley, Matfen and Le Petite Chateaux. We are aiming to get a date and venue booked asap and then we can get invites out and start the rest of the preparations!

Last weekend we went to our first of many wedding fairs! It was at Wynyard Hall in their grand marquee. The grounds are so beautiful there! We ordered a glass of fizz and wandered around the vendors purely for inspiration purposes. I actually loved one of the dresses they had on the runway, but I'm keeping hush about that minor detail. The event was hosted by Belle Bridal Magazine and we got a copy and a goodie bag (how cute is the quote Bag for Wife). The mag has been so helpful for giving venue ideas and other little sparks of inspo! There was something for everyone from teepee's and shetland ponies adorn with unicorn horns to fortune cookie favours and ice cream vendors. Such a great source if your looking for those quirky little extras! I have a million ideas of what I want but if it will actually come to fruition who knows! If anyone has planned a wedding a quick time scale let me know some tips and tricks, the rest of you just wish me luck!
