6 Months until my Big Day

It is now less than 6 month until my big day and I wanted to use this blog as a way of keeping note of my journey of becoming a bride to be.


I have been obsessed with metallics when looking for inspiration and my favourite colour is purple so I had gone for a Lavender and Gold theme. I have chosen Lavender as this allows for there to be a scent to the day as well as a colour.

I have liked having gold as one of my colours as this has allowed for me to add sparkle to the day with gold glitter and gold sequins :)

Choosing a purple was quite hard as there are so many pretty shades; as lavender is the shade which I have chosen it has greys hues in the colour so I have gone for a lavender/ mauve shade of purple.

Designing my stationery for the day was so much fun as it is the first insight into the day. I used a company called http://www.bespokeweddinginvites.co.uk they were so friendly and I literally sent a list of different ideas and fonts and they put all my ideas into an invitation. We were really pleased and the invitations were bespoke so there will be no other invitations like them. They were really good value for money and offer full wedding day stationery so we are going to arrange for them to do our name cards, menus and seating plan. We had a monogram also designed which is cute and we are having this as a theme through out our day.

What are your thoughts on our theme idea? Do you like the idea of having metallics as a theme?
