Decisions We Have Made | Blogging Bride Amanda

2019-03-05T11:42:43+00:00March 5th, 2019|

From thinking about all of the wedding fayre information, advice and ideas, we put it all together in my Wedding Planner book that my Maid of Honour bought me, and we drank a bottle of Champagne one night. I think we must have chatted for about 5 hours solid about all things Amanda-&-Tom-get-hitched.

We are so delighted to finally be sharing the gorgeous wedding of Dean & Annie. If you followed last years’ Blogging Bride posts, you’ll recognise this lovely couple. Annie blogged her wedding planning journey for us throughout 2018, so it was amazing to see all of those plans come together for their big day.

Visiting Wedding Fayre’s | Blogging Bride Amanda

Read our Blogging Bride Amanda’s latest instalment in her wedding planning blogs…

I am a huge fan of wedding fayre, shows, events. My fiancé on the other hand, is not. We went to one at Calke Abbey where different suppliers showcase their ideas. This was the first time we had looked inside The Riding School, apart from a lot of stalking on their Instagram. We walked in to the space, saw the high ceiling, spoke to someone from Honeysuckle & Castle and thought THIS IS IT. Booked it.

BLOGGING BRIDE | Our Wedding Breakfast | Annie & Dean | UK Wedding Blog

So we have the ring, the venue, the dress but what was next on the list? FOOD!

The women may talk about the dress and the men about just how funny the best man’s speech really was, but the food is the one thing that is ALWAYS discussed at length by all who attend. So many people have offered advice over the past couple of years and most of them have said the one thing they would do different and not cut corners on was the food. Dean and I are big foodies and love a good hearty meal.
