I thought I’d write an update about wedding plans as I get asked about it every so often in my inbox. We’ve been working on the details more recently as “the big day” is only about 3 months away now. Yaaay.
Last night we ordered our wedding rings. We both went with the good ol’ classic gold band. I picked up my wedding dress about a week ago and found some nice crystal jewellery to go with it. I still need to choose some shoes but will probably leave that until the last minute. Jon’s bespoke suit is just about ready to be brought home too. We’ve almost confirmed final catering details - my mum is handling all of that. All the equipment we’ll need (garden chairs, cocktail tables, festoon lighting, wine glasses, etc) has been booked. Photography has been organised. Oh and this weekend I’m taking my mum and sister shopping for dresses. My sister is going to be my “maid of honour” for lack of a better term, so she wants to find something pretty to wear. I’ve almost certainly left some important things out without looking at my checklist, but basically… we’re on track.
I’ve also been organising our honeymoon. I love planning holidays and like having total control over the details. Our flights from Melbourne to London were booked some time ago, but I only started researching hotels and flights about a month ago. We’ve booked our accommodation in London (Marylebone) and in Paris (Montmartre). We’re taking the Eurostar from one city to the other. We have also booked our accommodation in Positano, Italy, a town that looks like heaven on earth! We’re flying into Naples and I’m trying to work out if we should rent a car to have while we’re there, or if we should get a shuttle bus to Positano and rely on public transport. If anybody knows the Amalfi Coast well, your advice would be wonderful. I still have to find some accommodation in Berlin, but then we’ll be all sorted. :-)
