As Forrest Gump’s mother wisely said “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” Looking at the current situation of the world, I think you’d agree she’s quite right.

Think back to a few months ago, when you were planning your wedding. Who would have thought that you’d be forced to change your wedding date until next year?

Not all weddings are created equal, folks… and on your planning journey you can expect to hear some ‘interesting’ opinions about things brides ‘should’ do / have and things grooms ‘should‘ say / wear… because the preconceptions about weddings are HUGE!

Opinions come from all sides: families, the more traditional suppliers, the wedding press (you know, the pink magazines which are all about brides?) – and they’re steeped in tradition. Weddings have so much patriarchal baggage it’s a journey in itself to tackle the preconceptions head on and come up with a day that’s just right for you both – in equal measures!

As we find ourselves in a situation we could never have dreamed would ever happen, the coming together of the wedding industry has been immense, heartwarming and wonderful. This piece by Rebecca at TDR Bridal is a must-read right to the end, lovelies.

With love,

 

So I had been watching this cruel, incomprehensible disease rage through the world, slowly at first then gaining momentum hoping and praying it would never, surely reach the UK? How wrong was I?
