So, something exciting happened to me while I was on holiday...
It was very romantic, he got down on one knee in the Romanian countryside and whipped out a ring, taking me quite by surprise. I cried for like an hour afterwards, and floated on a cloud made of candy-floss dreams for the rest of our holiday.
I've always had quite a lot of ideas about our wedding with regards to colour schemes and dresses etc., but my secret wedding board on Pinterest is absolute insanity. I probably pin things to it a couple of times an hour or something ridiculous, pinning anything from 'cute ideas for vintage carnival wedding favours' to 'awesome boho country hairstyles for bridesmaids'. I've actually got my bridesmaids involved as well, some of them being keen pinners like myself.
That's not to say that I don't like Pinterest - I absolutely love it. However, I think it's very tempting to use it as a to-do list rather than to inspire my own ideas. When you go on the Weddings section of Pinterest it's plain to see that there are some incredibly talented artistic minds out there, and I often find myself thinking "Oh, that is the perfect way to hang fairy lights in a barn" or "I literally can't even think of a better way to create a vintage centrepiece". It sometimes makes me feel like I couldn't come up with anything that cool.
That's what all the people on Pinterest seem to do anyway.
(By the by, this blog isn't going to turn into a wedding blog now, despite appearances - I promise I'll restrain myself!)
