Thank you for viewing my new bridal blog!
My name is Lordine, I’m 24 and I live in Kent; originally a Surrey girl. I left full time education in 2011 and entered the big scary world of full time employment in the Autumn of 2011. I work full time for one of the ‘Big Four’ Consultancy practices in the UK.
I decided to create this blog as I got engaged to my boyfriend just a couple of months short of our 6 year anniversary in February 2011 and we’ve now decided to get married in the Summer of 2014. I have so much to plan and so many ideas to put together. When I got engaged, we planned a beautiful engagement party that quickly became a mini-wedding. It took a lot of planning and effort. This is partly why, despite being engaged for over a year, I am only now getting started with wedding planning!
The other reason is that I’m not the typical bride-to-be. Planning my dream wedding seemed daunting to me. Admittedly I put it off as there seemed to be so many decisions to make and so little time! I thought this blog may at least provide some guidance, tips and ideas for other brides out there or even members of the brides bridal party-roped into the planning by the bride I’m sure- in creating their ideal wedding.
I have been to a few wedding fairs- but have a hell of a lot more to attend (the free goodies are great!)- and have researched a lot about venues within the London/Surrey/Kent borders and will be posting my personal recommendations over the months to come. I will also be reviewing which wedding fairs are worth the effort of walking from stall to stall talking to various ‘experts’ in cakes, photographs and other expensive bridal ‘necessities’.
This blog is intended to be a guide but more importantly it is intended to inspire my fellow brides to create the wedding of their dreams as well as offering support and motivation when the planning gets too tough.
So feel free to comment on my posts and throw any suggestions that you may have at me!
