Wedding Wednesday – Planning a Wedding Abroad? Learn from My Mistakes! 

I’ve made no secret of the fact that Ed and I had numerous issues with our wedding planner in Greece, and the travel company who were dealing with our wedding & travel booking here in the UK.  Together, they had me in tears, and we came close to cancelling the wedding a couple of times. Therefore I think it’s safe to say, if we could go back in time the...

Wedding Wednesday – Our Santorini Wedding

Last weekend marked a whole five weeks since our wedding day. The past month has gone by in a blur of school runs and birthday celebrations and Santorini feels like a lifetime ago.  I realised I never did write a proper post about the wedding, instead mentioning it in passing over several posts. I wanted to go into a bit more detail as I know I was fairly negative prior...

Wedding Wednesday – Our Santorini Wedding – One Week to Go!

I want to be more positive in this update, I really do, and I will be mostly but yet again we’ve had issues and stress from our wedding planners.  The latest saga was to do with an additional piece of legal paperwork we were told we would need, which would have caused huge issues and additional costs to have obtained in time to fly out. I spoke to solicitors and...

Wedding Wednesday – Our Santorini Wedding – 5 Weeks to Go 

As I mentioned on my last update two weeks ago, it’s all a bit of a waiting game at the moment with our wedding plans.  Last Friday we got our documents back with the Apostille stamp, which is brilliant, as it meant we were able to email the scanned copies of these over to our wedding company.  I’ve also been receiving the deliveries of all the little bits I bought...

Our Santorini Wedding – 7 Weeks to Go

It feels like longer than two weeks since I wrote my last update. So much has happened. Reading the last post back, I can’t believe how stressed I was over details that I now realise weren’t actually that big a deal.  Ironically, a few days after the post went live, our menu was finally confirmed and I was able to send a message to our guests with the details of...

Our Santorini Wedding – 9 Weeks to Go! 

I was hoping to write this update and be in a more positive place than my last post on the subject but unfortunately I am still not getting the answers we want from the wedding coordinator in Santorini.  As somebody who works in the wedding industry myself, I’m pretty fed up and in disbelief that they would want a bride and groom to feel so negative so close to their...

Wedding Wednesday – Our Santorini Wedding – 11 Weeks to Go

How is it already less than three months to go until our wedding? Time is going by so quickly and I’m actually panicking a little about things we haven’t done yet.  The main advancement this week has been contact from our wedding coordinator in Santorini. We had been made aware that they don’t start plans until a few months prior to the wedding, but I still found it hard not...

Booking Our Wedding Accommodation 

A couple of weeks ago I got an email that got me all excited. No, it wasn’t telling me I’d won a lifetime supply of chocolate (although that would have been bloody amazing too). It was from Pefect Weddings Abroad, letting me know that 2017 flights had been released and so we could book the accommodation for our wedding!  So last week I found myself parting with £400 of our...

I’m Getting Married!! 

Ok, I know, I’ve been a bit like a broken record this past week. I promise I will shut up after this post (well, until I go dress shopping, bridesmaid dress shopping, ring shopping etc, etc- yeah, I’m never shutting up about weddings from this point on).  So anyway, you may remember seeing that Ed and I won a wedding package with Perfect Weddings Abroad last week and we were...

I Only Went and Won our Santorini Wedding! 

Erm so yeah, big news… Kind of gave it away a bit in the title, but can’t really blame me, it’s pretty flipping exciting news!     I am one of those people who never win anything, so when I entered a competition with Perfect Weddings Abroad around Christmas, I didn’t really think about it again until I was sent an email congratulating me on winning my wedding in Santorini.    ...
