One year from today...


One year from today I will be becoming Mrs Marshall. Exciting isn't it?!

The sky is grey, threatening rain, so not the bright morning I was hoping for that would inspire me with confidence.

I booked my make-up artist this week, a local girl who was so sweet when I met her and I'm meeting with the florist, a friend of Mr M's, on Saturday. God help her - she let me know she would be bringing along photos of her past work so I could get ideas but little does she know I have practically a full folder of flower photos I want to show her. She'll not know what has hit her!
Looking over all the inspiring pictures I have kept since I got engaged, I noticed that at the start there isn't one photo of flowers and at that stage I would have said they weren't important to me at all, but recently nearly every one I've kept is of floral centrepieces and bouquets. Funny.
At the beginning I mostly collected screenshots of colour palettes, but now I'm focusing on a specific colour scheme there is definitely a recurring theme in what I collect. Here's hoping my bridesmaids suit the colours I have in mind!

I've got a contact for my card and envelopes for the stationery I'm doing myself so I'm making some progress with the small stuff and it feels good. Still no dress shopping yet though! I'm dreading it.

We're going to see a band play at our venue on Friday night and hopefully we'll be happy with what we see to move that forward.

I have such trouble making decisions and then when they are finally made, I reconsider and reconsider them until I drive myself mental instead of letting go and moving on to the next thing. That's the hardest part of wedding planning for lil' over-thinker me!
