Wedding excitement

There are 21 days until November 4th. Exactly three weeks until Sam and I say “I do.” The time is absolutely flying by, and I’m trying hard to not be too Bridezilla-y and not to get too stressed or overwhelmed.

I don’t want to give away too much of the detail before the day, but I wanted to share the five things I’m most excited (and nervous) about!

1. Having Dougie there – When we got engaged, I didn’t know it, but I was already a few weeks pregnant. We briefly debated getting married before Dougie was born, but we both thought it would be even more special to have him there with us. Plus, he’s going to look absolutely adorable.

2. Everyone I love in one room – Almost all my family are coming to the wedding and it will be amazing to have them all together. My Grandad isn’t able to come, which I’m really sad about, but I understand the reasons why. I have family coming down from Scotland, and my Godmother is flying over from New Zealand which is amazing. My best friend (and bridesmaid) is coming over from Australia for it and I’m so, so grateful.

3. Wearing my dress – Sounds like an obvious one, but I can’t wait. My body shape has changed a lot over the last few months, mainly from losing pregnancy weight and breastfeeding, so the dress I have chosen looks and feels completely different to how it was when I first tried it on back at the beginning of the year.

4. Saying our vows – This is something I’m nervous about! We’re getting married in a church. This may not be something for everyone, but I grew up going to church, and for me, it’s something that I’ve always pictured. It’s not a huge church, but I’m nervous about having to speak in front of everyone!

5. The date – I’ve only ever been to spring and summer weddings, and I’m SO excited to be having an autumnal wedding. We actually wanted an October wedding but our venue was already booked up for October, but we realised that as our wedding is the weekend of Bonfire Night, we thought that could be pretty cool – our venue has a view over London so hopefully we’ll get to see some displays as the night goes on.

    Awww Hels, this post is so sweet! I can’t wait to be there dancing away with you and I was actually thinking how beautiful the view over London will be with all the fireworks! It’s a real testament to just how fab you are that all these people want to hop from various places in the world to be with you and share in yours and Sam’s special day. You will be amazing at the vows, no need to be nervous I’m sure! I’m sorry your Grandad can’t make it but I just know he will be thinking of you and how proud he is. I’m so excited, not long to go now!
