From The Heart: Am I going bridal mad?

Yesterday I agreed with myself that I’d have a night off from wedding planning. Not a client wedding this time, I’m talking about my very own big day. Yikes. I sat down in front of the TV with my fiancé last night, laptop balanced on my knee pretending to peruse shots of K.Mid’s new blowdry; […]

  • “We chose Hector of @weheartpictures because he takes beautiful photos that really capture the spirit of the day; we loved his laid back, spontaneous and documentary style photography. He captured so many lovely, humorous and whimsical moments for us, we just love our photos.”
.
Amazing feedback for @weheartpictures from this sublime wedding over on Love My Dress right now. Eagle eye music fans might spot that the groom is keyboard player @emreyears of the band @yearsandyears (if you’re not familiar with the band name, trust me, you’ll be familiar with at least some of their popular tracks - go Youtube, one of them has a mere 181m views) 💕💕💕

  • “I felt the happiest bride in my custom dress, tailored in lace, chantilly and tulle.  I wanted a classic and simple wedding look and I knew the gown had to include lace.  The staff at Serrano Madrid were so sweet and made the process really enjoyable.”

  • We’ve shared details in Love My Dress today of the beautiful Cotswolds wedding venues available via @principalhotels - like the beautifully pictured, Grade II listed @tortworth_court_weddings, which sits in 300 acres of beautiful grounds. With a history dating back to the 11th Century, and following a recent multi-million pound refurbishment, the hotel and spa is now a Cotswold gem. It’s the perfect spot for any size of wedding, comfortably holding 30-250 guests. Also, be sure to take a look at the glass ceiling in the orangery – your guests will love dancing under the stars at your wedding!”
.
As another treat, new bookings for 2018 will receive a complimentary upgrade of the bridal suite to one of the newly refurbished Executive Junior Suites – just mention Love My Dress when you speak to Lorna, the wedding coordinator, on 01454 263634. You can also email her via tortworthweddings@devere.com.

  • “Be really clear with each other when it comes to what’s most important to you. This will shape the way you plan and spend. Danny and I both wanted amazing food and wine, a gorgeous venue, and all our 130 guests there for the whole day. Once we’d worked out what these things would cost, we made everything else fit around it.
.
To all the brides out there on a tight time-frame, I would highly recommend finding a venue, with experienced staff, that also provides food and wine that you love. We initially had dreams of renting a space, and then tracking down an independent caterer, and doing a lot more ourselves.
.
Once we realised how much extra work and organisation this would be and that we’d also need people to set up and down, serve and decorate, we began to look for a venue that could do it for us, to the standard we wanted. It took a huge amount of stress out of our hands, and made the process so much easier.
.
Consider buying a dress in a sample sale – it’s a great way to save money. I had a fantastic experience with Sophie Grace Bridal, and my dress was altered excellently and in perfect condition. And don’t sweat the small things! Do the things you want to do, and remember that everyone there loves you.”
