I know that some of my regular readers are quite interested in how my wedding planning is going, so I thought I would post a little update on recent events.
Last weekend, not only did we manage to sort my bridesmaid’s dress (it’s going to be an Eggplant/Aubergine colour instead of Cadbury’s purple, eek!) but on the Sunday me and my mum went to a wedding fayre. We weren’t really expecting much due to previous wedding fayre’s being tiny and having hardly any exhibitors so imagine our surprise when we turned up just before it was due to open and there was a massive queue! Outside were vintage wedding cars and even VW campervans that were available to hire.
We don’t need any transport for our wedding as we are all staying in the hotel the night before, so we ventured inside as soon as the doors were opened. The first so many brides were given a goody bag with various treats and there were numerous rooms with exhibits which were all really pretty. In the first room there was a bridal store, photographer, cake maker and a table with a lady who made guest books and post boxes. Mum picked up a glass of bucks fizz as we made our way into the second room where there was another photographer, florist and a rack of wedding dresses. There were literally around 5 or 6 more rooms packed with tables!

As regular readers of my blog and twitter will know, last weekend I went bridesmaid dress shopping with my lovely Bridesmaid to be. Now don’t stop reading as this post isn’t another boring wedding post… It’s all about SHOES! We found ourselves in the usual places looking for that perfect dress when we stumbled into John Lewis. I must admit I’m not a regular shopper of John Lewis apart from around Christmas time when they sell the most delicious gingerbread houses and Christmas treats but after looking online I thought we’d give them a go.
I found myself getting more and more distracted by the shoe section. While my bridesmaid was looking for her dress, I still needed bridal shoes so left her to it while I ventured off in the direction of the shoe department. This is where I stumbled across Kurt Geiger. This is in all honesty not a brand I would have previously considered due to my bargain hunter instinct in me but I was really surprised by the different styles of high heeled shoes they had in store! I came away empty handed on the day but when I got back I thought I’d take a look at the John Lewis website and have a proper nosey with a cup of tea and my pyjamas in tow!
