10 Things I’ve Learnt Since Getting Engaged

It’s been less than two months since Alex put a ring on it (still in shock!) & I wanted to share what I have learnt in that short time…


1. It feels reaaalllyyy weird to go from saying “my boyfriend” to “my fiance”. I still find myself saying “boyfriend” to people…

2. Emotions are all over the place. I was on a constant high (& still am…) but also overwhelmed with the reality & love from everyone else… Which ties in to my next one,

3. People genuinely happy & excited for you is the best thing in the world. All I ever want is for people to be happy & to make people happy by finding my best friend is SO COOOOOOL!!!!

4. A Pinterest board is your best friend. Bridesmaid dresses I ‘pinned’ two weeks ago are now ones I would never put my Bridesmaids in…

5. You can’t put things into motion until you find your dream venue.


6.  I want a vintage wedding dress.

7. Bridebook & ROCK MY WEDDING are FAB for planning your big day & getting inspiration.

8. We met with the lovely lady at our dream venue who said “Planning a Wedding shouldn’t be stressful. It should be fun” & that is SO TRUE! People can stress out about costs that they could do without. You don’t need 1361894310 favours on the tables at the day do cause your guests will probably forget to take them home anyway…

9. It does feel different. Alex & I have wanted to be engaged for ages because we felt more than just boyfriend & girlfriend but we didn’t anticipate to feel so different after it happened. It feels good. It feels adult (deffo still a child).

10. It’s YOUR day. No one elses. Everyone who we’ve spoken to has said this & it’s always worth bearing in mind. YES you want your guests to have a good time. YES you want them to be able to get there & have a place to stay but at the end of the day, it’s YOU getting married. Don’t stress so much about everyone else.
