The best wedding blogs of the fortnight!

Hasn’t Friday taken a long time to come around this week?! I’m looking forward to the weekend – and I hope you have a lovely one. Whether you’re shopping or seeing family or friends, have a great weekend. To keep you entertained in the meantime, here are my best wedding blog posts from the last couple of weeks – with thanks to WedWeekly for a couple of ideas here too!

Advice and opinion – thoughts on wedding planning and more

I loved this – civil servants wrestle with the concepts of consummating a gay marriage. Seriously.

  • One in ten brides-to-be update their relationship status on facebook within minutes of getting engaged – did you? Insights into wedding planning and social media from Mashable and The Knot
  • Our government made a stupid decision to make gay marriage in Church of England and Church in Wales churches illegal. Peter Tatchell’s statement explains why this can be challenged – it’s discriminating against the churches themselves, as I understand it. The debate rolls on…
  • Why do we let bureaucrats decide whether gay marriage can happen in church or anywhere else… they haven’t a clue. The issue of consummation has our civil servants thoroughly confused – and this article is entertaining, especially the kitten picture and the flow chart! Enjoy 😉
  • Last but not least, one of Annabel’s best: British craftsmanship and your wedding (dress) – a beautifully written piece about buying British made items for your wedding. I’d love to hear more about this, extending the discussion to accessories, shoes and menswear. I’d like to write on this subject myself too – because buying British is one thing; buying local takes it a step further.

That’s it from me for today, I hope you’ve found some entertaining links here!

Have a great day, whatever you get up to – and see you back here tomorrow.
