PROJECT FIND EMILY’S WEDDING DRESS!

 

Hey guys! It’s been a few months since I wrote anything about my wedding plans, so today I wanted to share a big update with you! First of all, we’ve booked our wedding photographer!! It was the second thing I did after booking our wedding venue as it’s top of our priorities, along with a videographer (which I’m still yet to find as my faves have already been booked for my wedding date, sad face!). Now just a few weeks in and the search for my wedding dress is on!

BESPOKE BRIDES BEST OF 2018!

Welcome to the final post of 2018! I adore writing these posts, we are so often caught up in the moment that we forget to look back and be thankful for how far we’ve come in such a short time. For both myself and Jess personally, it’s been a year of change (for the better!) and although this hasn’t affected Bespoke Bride directly, I think it will be the start of us looking at making some changes in our business lives too, as we move forward into 2019.  The new year ahead is going to be full of exciting things including a HUGE new business opportunity and it’s also the year I’ll become a wife! Eeeeek!! So as you can imagine we are eagerly awaiting what adventures are yet to come. But for now, grab a cuppa and some choccie biccies as we enjoy our best of 2018.

A BRIDAL LUNCHEON WITH DINE INDULGE

So how many bridal showers are too many? I’m curious, how many pre-wedding celebrations did you have? Because I seriously think I’m going to end up having more than what’s considered the norm, I intend on dragging this out as long as I can 😀 Thanks to Dine Indulge I hosted my bridal luncheon with some of my closest friends to celebrate the fact that we’ve FINALLY set a date for our wedding and that we’ve booked our wedding venue. I’ll tell you all about that in another post but; SPOILER ALERT! I’ts not going to be in Mexico as we’d originally planned. Anyway, back to my bridal luncheon. Last weekend, I invited my old school buddies to lunch at my new house cooked by a professional chef, courtesy of Dine Indulge. So, I thought I’d share some of the photos with you all.
