So here is my first wedding related blog post - one of many I'm sure! So far all I have done in regards to planning is read through a few wedding magazines, buy a wedding journal and started a Pinterest board. I think I'm going to tackle the planning very slowly as I really enjoy planning events and I've always seen my wedding day as the highlight of my 'event organising' and crafting life. I also kind of want to soak it all in and enjoy being newly engaged for a little while.
I'm really looking forward to making so many different things for my wedding and I've already decided that I would like to make my bridesmaids dresses and as much of the food as I can for the day. I just really enjoy making things a lot, and I can't wait to share some of my wedding projects here!
I've also including some better close up pictures of my ring. It's such a beautiful and unique ring and what makes it even more special, is that Matt designed it himself and worked with a local jeweller for about five months to get it exactly right! He even included little details, such as the small engravings on the sides that were apparently very popular in the 1950's but haven't really been done much since, which gives it a real antique feel (also I might add that the 1950's is my most favourite era!). I would have never been able to pick a ring anywhere close to as lovely as this one, and I'm so very lucky to have a guy that knows me so well!
