My old, new, borrowed and blue

When this post goes live I will be getting up to have a shower on the morning of my Wedding day!  My hairdresser will be arriving at 7:30am and I’ll be doing mine and my Mam’s makeup before heading off to Crook Hall and Gardens to become Mrs. Harding.

There were quite a few Wedding traditions we weren’t bothered about and just didn’t do, brides maids, best man, evening reception for example but a couple I caved in to.  I bought a traditional Wedding gown which I said I wasn’t bothered about, I have a veil, I’m getting an up-do and we’ve done favours and place settings, all of which I didn’t think I would go with.  I said a number of times the old, new, borrowed, blue was a bit of a faff on and I wasn’t bothered about until the beginning of three weeks running up to my Wedding and I caved!

Not everyone want, or has the budget, for a traditional all bells and whistles white Wedding.  It’s become quite fashionable with the onset of celebrity influence to have a low key, low(er) budget Wedding, with fewer guests and fripperies.  This was right up mine and Gary’s street as we both wanted to keep it simple, chic, personal and cheap!

I am probably the worst person to be writing this post because I deal with stress the worst ever!  I find it hard to cope with thoughts about future events, what might happen, what someone might do or say and what I might do, stupid, I know.  In this post I am going to go over what I have stressed about and what I should have done to cope with it and fell better.

I’ve been really planning my makeup for my Wedding day down to the minute details, one of the details is the blush I am going to wear.  It’s important because I want it to match my skin tone, complement the lipstick I am going to be wearing and also last a long time!  A lot to ask for in a little powder blush.  I was tempted to buy NARS Orgasm but when I looked through my collection I had a few peachy, pink toned blushes and I thought I’d share the top few that I thought were most appropriate for a Bridal makeup look.

So this post is a little peep at all the little extra bits and bobs we’ve gotten together for the big day!  Obligatory stuff if you will.  Obviously we needed confetti and have bought a box of 25 little boxes, we only have 16 guests so felt buying a whole box was better value.  Make sure you check the confetti is biodegradable or real flower petals that have been freeze dried, gotta protect the environment and nature people!  We plan to get the venue to pop a little box on each chair at the ceremony and I can’t wait for photos of it being thrown over me and Gary, think thats the pictures I want the most.
