  • Wedding: April 2012

I’m an April bride too. So far we have:

  • Booked the venue
  • Booked a photographer
  • Booked a videographer
  • Booked a celebrant (and started writing our ceremony)
  • Chosen our bridal parties (two bridesmaids, one best man, one groomsman, three ushers, three flowergirls and one page boy)
  • Booked our band
  • Booked our DJ
  • Booked fireworks
  • Booked our caterers
  • Roped people in to help me DIY our cake
  • Bought my shoes and almost finished strassing them
  • Booked a dressmaker to do my dress and the bridesmaid dresses
  • Paid the deposit on my fiance’s bespoke kilt suit
  • Had a friend’s mum offer to do all our flowers
  • Bought my mum’s outfit
  • Roped family and friends in to play the bagpipes, do our invitations, play the piano, do cocktail magic, entertain kids during speeches and play the ukulele during our ceremony.
  • Chosen flowergirl dresses and bought their headbands.
  • Made my tiara and bridesmaid headbands.
  • Chosen my veil.
  • Booked accommodation for the wedding party.

I’ve still to:

  • Get my bridesmaids measured up for their dresses.
  • Arrange a group discount for kilt hire for anyone attending the wedding.
  • Book a hairdresser.
  • Get my fiance to learn to drive.

I feel like we’re nearly there. We’ve even started booking the hen and stag party and I’m onto planning the grown-up hen party which will be more like a bridal shower but without the presents.

@MrsBoomBoom: Thank you so much. I’m sort of in a planning lull at the moment. I loved picking my shoes.

What’s your dress like?
