Save the dates

Its been a busy few days My sister has graduated , I started a new job and
now have a wedding date. although individually these are pretty awesome
events together combined with the fabulous weather they have put me in
mood where anything is achievable.

Today I finally managed to book our wedding in the church diary. The
official date will be Saturday the 13th of September 2014. Now all we
need to do is send out our save the date cards (post to follow) and
decide on a reception venue before the true fun of wedding planning can

I went to my sisters graduation yesterday. a wonderful experience which made me realise how much we have grown up. We are close in age and now both planning for our life after university (although I still have one year left).

Another big thing was my first day at a new job today. lots of firsts but plenty of opportunity to continue doing new things aswell.

now I am waiting for craft supplies so I can make my save the date cards and post them on thier way.

How has your week been thus far? let s know….

I’m getting married ! and what better to celebrate the announcement than Bob Dylan’s wedding song :

I love you more than ever, more than time and more than love
I love you more than money and more than the stars above
I love you more than madness, more than waves upon the sea
I love you more than life itself, you mean that much to me.

Ever since you walked right in the circle’s been complete
I’ve said goodbye to haunted rooms and faces in the street
In the courtyard of the jester which is hidden from the sun
I love you more than ever and I haven’t yet begun.

Me and my fiance have finally decided to set a date for our wedding. We want to keep the costs as low as possible so we will be doing it ourselves where possible and only calling in the experts where it is cheaper to do so or in an area we have no clue whatsoever and necessity demands.

We have already decided on our guest list of 50 guests. Now we need to finalize the date with the vicar who is not back till Monday and send out save the dates.

There is a huge list of stuff to organize in the next month or so but once that is sorted there will be little else until about a month before the wedding.

Here is the list of what me and The Count came up with when starting our list of things we need to do
