The Diary of a Bride to be…..Greetings from the married side

Just over a month ago we waved goodbye to our guest Blogger Emma from Emma Louise Writes as she went off on her way to get married. We have been following Emma’s diary entries for a few months now and it has been very interesting to read how she has progressed with her wedding plans.

Now Emma is back, not as a nervous bride to be but a happily married women, and here is what she has to say about her very wonderful wedding day.

Grettings from the married side


Well, the big day has been and gone, and after 3 weeks of happily married life I can safely say I made it through unscathed! It feels weird that after 2 years of planning, preparation and spending my entire wages on wedding magazines, I no longer have to worry about whether the napkins will match the tablecloths. In fact, it all seems a bit of a dream now. Even on the morning of the day as I was cursing my eyeliner for not going on straight, I still felt like I was getting ready for a good night out and not the biggest day of my life. I mean, I’m not sure how I was supposed to feel really- nervous, excited, petrified, delirious… I guess I was a little of all of them. My bridesmaids  were all scurrying around me, false eyelashes being brandished and stomachs being sucked in, and I was sitting quite calmly sipping on my Bucks Fizz. Dad was cleaning the bathroom, mum was panicking over whether the bread rolls at the venue would be too big or too small and I just wanted to get there, say my vows and relax!

Needless to say, we had a couple of hiccups but if I could give two piece’s of advice to any bride to be it’s these… 1) get someone to carry a small spray on deodorant!! I was so hot in my dress, hugging people all day, traipsing around for photo’s… I needed to re-spray! And 2) Keeping on the perspiring theme… don’t sweat the small stuff as it really doesn’t matter. I had planned out my entrance down to the last swish of my dress but the photographer mistakenly sent my bridesmaids and groomsmen down the
aisle prematurely and minus music whilst I was having a pre-ceremony wee!  Poor things had to come back and do it all over again but in all honestly it broke the ice, everyone relaxed and the girls got to have their moments twice! My dad’s cravat was a different shade of red to the rest of the bridal party (no one noticed), my mother in law wore a dress the same colour as mine (I didn’t care) and some guests decided that appropriate wedding attire was jeans and a t shirt. It’s really not worth letting these
things spoil the day you have paid so much money and waited an eternity for.

Then if you’re as lucky as we were, you’ll be straight off on your honeymoon the next day where you can sit back, relax with a cocktail or three and giggle every time you refer to yourselves as husband and wife!

Thank you all for reading my diary, I hope it’s been an interesting read! Good luck with your wedding and be sure to follow my blog on
