diary of a boho bride

Good Afternoon to you all! I hope you are well and have managed to enjoy some of the glorious wether we have been having this week. I have been very busy this week planning for the #bridalblogathon trip for next week. You will hear a little more about this in a post next week. I am so excited to share all the information with all our Boho readers. I hope you all have some great plans for the weekend and if you are attending a wedding, we would love to hear more about it.

Today we are back with Kerry our lovely Boho Bride to hear more about what she has been doing since her last post on her wedding planning highlights

The final count down has begun, less than 4 months until our Wedding Day!
We’ve been busy putting our plans and ideas together and making them a reality and now we can start to see how t’s everything is coming together. I’m still slightly nervous about getting all our DIY bits and bobs completed, but Jon reassures me it’ll be ok.

Wedding Invitations

Invitations, Kids and Groomsmen

Our invitations have all been sent and our guests seem thrilled with them!
We sent them a little later than expected, as I just could not find the design or style that I was looking for. I was looking for something different that I hadn’t seen before, they had to be rustic with a touch of personality and individuality about them. For months I’d be searching the internet for inspiration and ideas.
I stumbled across Doodles Design who have a beautiful range of typography wedding invitations. What was even more appealing was their bespoke service. So I contacted them with my ideas and was so excited when they were made reality. I’m absolutely thrilled with them and now our guests have all received theirs, I can share the pictures with you.

Entertaining the Kids

Invitations, Kids and Groomsmen


I know many people often debate whether or not to have children at their Wedding. For us it’s an absolute must, we have fabulous nieces, nephews and friends with little ones that it would be a shame for them not to be there to enjoy our day with us.
Keeping them entertained has been a huge priority, as they don’t want to be hanging around the adults, they’ll want to run free and wild no doubt!

We’d already decided that we’re having garden games for everyone, although I can imagine competitive adults may deter the younger ones and they may get bored. I’ve looked at putting together activity packs for them; again concerned that the novelty may wear off quickly I kept searching.
I’ve finally found the perfect solution, that I think may keep them entertained for a bit longer than an activity pack at least. Pottery and canvas painting!! I found Doodle Alley at a local Wedding Fair, they offer pop up studio’s at Wedding receptions for both children and adults. It might get messy, but I’m sure the kids will have loads of fun making their creations. I may even have ago myself!

Today we had the last of our Groomsmen fitted for their suits. They all look very smart in their three-piece suits. More importantly they all feel comfortable wearing them and can wear them again if they wanted to.

Final Thoughts

Even though we’re getting there, we still have lots to do and now feels like the final madness in the run up to what will be the best day of our lives I’m sure. I’m feeling very humbled right now and excited at the thought of marrying my best friend.

Best wishes,

Kerry & Jon
