The Wedding Diaries - Don't Panic


Just over 5 months to go until our wedding.


Oh my God!

If I’m perfectly honest, very little progress has been made since my last Wedding Diaries entry. We didn’t practice baking the wedding cake over Easter, we haven’t got around to deciding on the timeline for the wedding, and I still need to sort out some tealights. Ahhh!

But it’s fine, we still have time – as Mr MM says, now we’ve got just the right amount of wedding panic that it’s driving us to get cracking. Right? Right.

Last weekend we went to choose Mr MM’s suit, which was a really fun day. We had a little lunch date first {something we realised we hadn’t actually done in ages} and then spent the next few hours combing through the shop and choosing a variety of different suits, jackets and waistcoats for him to try on. We had visited them a few months before, but we ended up starting again from scratch this time. The girls were absolutely brilliant, suggesting colour combinations which would complement our flowers, and fabrics we might not have initially considered. I personally had a great time, lounging around on a leather sofa, drinking coffee and pointing at the suits I wanted Mr MM to try! A couple of hours later, and we’d chosen his suit, picked out the waistcoats for his ushers, and paid the deposit. A few more jobs done!

It's getting to the point where I’m starting to book in a lot of the major appointments for the big day; dress fittings, hair and make-up trials, my hen do, suit fittings – I know it sounds silly, but it makes it all seem very real! A letter arrived for us this week that was addressed to future me {spoiler – I’m not really called Maggie May} and it was so odd to see my new name there in black and white.

Probably the most exciting update to share with you all is that we have booked our honeymoon. We’re off two days after the wedding {!} and we’re going to…

... NEW ZEALAND!

Over the moon doesn’t even begin to cover it. We’ve wanted to go for a long time, and we thought when better to trek to the other side of the world than for one of the most important holidays of our lives. I’m really keen to get planning some of the details, and was thrilled when I saw my favourite bloggers Carrie and Liv had recently visited and shared some excellent tips. If you’ve got any recommendations for either the North or South Island, please leave a comment below!

Other jobs that are whirling around my mind at the moment? Accommodation, the set list for our band, practicing baking the wedding cake {oh God}, actually baking the wedding cake {oh God}, canapes, alcohol, readings, hymns, confetti, favours, decorations, disco playlist, gift list, gifts for the wedding party, invitations {or we won't actually have any guests at this wedding}, page boys’ outfits, orders of service, place names… 

I think it’s time to go and have a gin.

Until the next diary entry!
