Well hello there, with only 4 sleeps now until the big day I am getting...
So starting today is a new feature I will be running till October…………..‘The Diary of a Bride to be.’
Our lovely bride in question is Emma Linder, she lives in London with the wedding tacking place at Satham Lodge in Lymm, Cheshire on Sunday 10th October.
Emma has very kindly agreed to write every fortnight for me leading up to the wedding, shaing with us the stories and experiences behind the big day.
To read more of Emmas wedding trails and tribulations then head over to her blog Emma Louise Writes.
So I’ll let Emma tell you a little more about herself:
10.10.10 –Goodbye Miss Linder, Hello Mrs Gregory
‘I never thought I possessed the elusive bride gene until one sunny September evening in 2008 when my boyfriend of 4 months nervously suggested he had something to ask me. Yes, 4 months isn’t a long time to be seeing someone before making the ultimate commitment to join with them for life, but, I had that good old cliché feeling that he was “The One”. After breaking the news to the parents (cue rapid loss of colour to the face and gaping, goldfish style mouths), it was time to start the planning stage.
So, here I am, 11 weeks to go and on the final steps of the ladder to the Big Day. Living in London, getting married in my home town on Manchester and trying to co-ordinate things with a 200 mile distance gap has been a challenge!
The theme of the wedding is shabby chic (although according to my mother, I can’t possibly use the word “shabby” to describe my nuptials), the colours are ivory, dusky pink and burgundy and the music will be strictly classics. That rules out anything by The Cheeky Girls but CAN include Barry Manilow and Copacabana. The bridesmaids are going to wow in 50’s style vintage dresses, the birdcage centrepieces are going to look stunning…. And I’m just hoping my uneven eyebrows will grow back in time!!!
