Ok so now I am newly engaged, the fun begins of planning the wedding. Now I have a few ideas already, but I’m nowhere near ready to start planning a wedding…yet. So I aim to fill the space with ideas every Wednesday, and slowly build up a mood board of my favourite pins and ideas. I will also be experimenting with DIY wedding fave’s, so hopefully I can inspire you too!

So lets get started,as I have never planned anything like this, I brought a couple of magazines, Brides to be specific, and they suggested some apps which can help you get started. I went for WedHappy. The basic version is free, and it gives you check list and rough dates for when things need to be done. First task, setting the date.

Ok so we have a few dates in mind which we are going to keep to ourselves for the meantime until the date is official, but I let you know the year and the favourable month we are thinking. November 2016.

The next item on the agenda is a venue, as I guess venues need to be booked way in advance, especially for popular months during Spring and Summer. I have been looking at some venues, just online and looking at pinterest for the type of thing I want. Here are some places which look amazing.

First thing, first. I’m not getting married in NYC (I wish) but I love this list of alternative places to get married there, which was featured on BuzzFeed. The best thing about Pinterest, is you can get ideas on layout, decor, and features that you might want at your venue, plus, I like to find places that might appeal to all of our readers.





Brooklyn Botanical Gardens is number 5 on the list, but how breathtakingly beautiful does this look, all that light? and in the evening, safe to say, it’s a constant instagram moment.

See the rest of the list here.
