Wishlist Wednesday – A wedding that’s ‘us’

I haven’t done a wedding-related Wishlist Wednesday yet, but as we’re gearing up to view some potential venues in the next few weeks, I think it’s about time I did!

I’ve been looking for inspiration since we became engaged. What type of wedding do we want? Should we have a theme? What colours do we like? What kind of dress will suit my figure? Honestly, there is a LOT to consider.

I find that magazines are quite samey and generally I want our wedding to be traditional in the sense that I want my step-dad to give me away, my groom to make a speech,  and to not see each other before the big day – those traditions.

In terms of the rest, I think I’d want to do something really different.

There are plenty of ‘real stories‘ in magazines and a lot of them are fab. But after reading two or three, they all blend into one. I stumbled across this blog post which is honestly the best wedding I’ve seen – Dorian & Lynn’s geeky elegant dino museum wedding.

I can see myself and Joe stealing borrowing a lot of these ideas as a starting point. After all, Joe took me to Manchester Museum so I could see the dinosaurs just before he popped the question. Perhaps that’s why I love it so much.

I hope our wedding is as creative and memorable, but in our own way.
