After my engagement on 1 January 2020, the ecstatic me couldn’t wait to plan my wedding. Then the pandemic struck, and wedding plans were put on hold. I had seen heartbroken friends re-book and endlessly reschedule their big days, and I decided that I would only start booking in dates and suppliers once I could see an end in sight.


As restrictions continue to be eased, various sectors including wedding and hospitality are cautiously operating with a ‘business back to normal’ mindset. I am so very pleased to see businesses reopen and welcome patrons and customers back.


I now feel confident that a wedding in 2022 will happen sans delays, which is why I have now started to put the wheels in motion to plan for my wedding. (Woohoo.)


If you’re a wedding supplier (wedding caterer, wedding venue, wedding cake maker, wedding florist, wedding dress maker, anything wedding related), then please do get in touch. I would love to feature you in the wedding section on my blog.

To kick things off, here is a dress that has caught my eye. Isn’t it gorgeous? It is the elegantly named Demitra from Badgley Mischka, and what I love about this dress is the intricate lace and romantic silhouette. I have always loved ivory and blush tones, in fact, around 50% of my wardrobe falls into this category, which is why I’d feel so comfortable wearing a dress like this.


I vacillate between having a full-on-wedding-dress–plus-giant-train, to something that is understated and elegant. I guess we’ll find out on the big day, what I eventually go for. 😊


We’ve got our eye on Shottle Hall as a venue, I’m just in the middle of firming up dates and ironing out a few other details.


What are your priorities? For me, it has to be cake, food and dress, in that order too. I am privileged to have reviewed numerous restaurants, which is why I have a fairly good idea of the sort of food and drink I’d like on the wedding day.
