Weddingnesday… it’s original because it’s ours

9 Jun

In the last two weeks, the OH and I have gone from having nothing in place to having quite a lot in place.

We now have a band, a venue and a date.

We’ve been speaking to caterers, bakers, photographers.

We’ve sussed out how we want our invites to look.

We even know a thing or two about the decorations.

And I’ve been trying on wedding dresses.


In amongst this I’ve been making lists.

(I make a lot of lists generally. It helps keep me sane.)

Lists of things we would like to have at the wedding.

And then I got concerned.

Were the things original enough?

Were they different or special enough?

The OH just smiled at me.

“It’s our wedding. That’s original enough.”

Sometimes he knows exactly the right thing to say.

    I kept doing that too, I think it was lovely wedding blogs putting pressure on me to find the most original thing going, and to personalise absolutely everything. he’s so right, its your wedding!

  8. Tonia 10/06/2010 at 9:06 AM #

    And I have apparently lost the ability to spell ‘have’!

    That is so so true!
    Funny how we need reminding of these things and good on your OH for doing so.

    Now enjoy that planning!

    Your OH is wise indeed.

    I had all of these thoughts. In the end though, for us, the fact that our wedding was quite traditional seemed different to other people – most people were V surprised by my very white, very wedding dressy wedding dress!

    What a lovely thing to say. He’s very right too.

    I worried about this until IB suggested that I might be trying to be different just for the sake of it. He was right too.

    Well done on the band, are you going to spill the beans? Or at least tell us what kind of music they play?

    Hurrah Zoe! Yes, there is a lot of pressure to be super original. its hard to remember that most epople dont read wedding blogs, and if you stick to the things you both love, it will be truly original! Ray (of ray makes do) has a good mantra. she says sthey want their wedding to be ‘us but better’. a special presentation of the stuff they love.

    definitely on to a winner!

  14. Becky 15/06/2010 at 9:04 AM #

    Aw, so, so true!

    He is so right!

Leave a little love...
