Wedding Month on What Olivia Did…

Can you believe it’s been over three months since our wedding day? (Probably) three months since I last panic-looked at a spread sheet (‘THIS WEEK WE’RE DUE TO BAKE CAKES! HOW DID IT COME AROUND SO SOON!’) , Worried about wrong addresses and debated the Pimm’s/vs, gin cocktails with people, unlike me, who had in fact tried both (Pimm’s won, obviously- and AREN’T I GLAD IT DID)…

…But, and most importantly- it’s three months since I married my best friend, now known as my husband too (which may or may not ever become less strange and adult to say). So after a post wedding book-writing hiatus (so. nearly. there), I thought I’d finally get along and share a little (or a lot) of our special day. I said I’d start WEDDING MONTH at the beginning of September, but due to a bout of illness, it’s typically, fashionably late. It’s been something that I’ve ummed and aahed over- wondering if it’s something I should even post about (‘come on Liv, perhaps you’ve gone on enough now- it was three months ago’)- if people, other than my direct family (who are still debating which pictures to get printed) are even that interested.

But- seeing as I’ve shared everything up until this point- from university dropouts, our engagement and first home- it feels like another chapter that actually, I’m really excited to document. I know how much I inhaled other peoples wedding chatter in the lead up to ours, so if it helps, reassures or inspires any decisions in the lead up to someone else’s (even if it’s that you really needn’t worry that much about your nail colour or the font on your place names), then I’m more than happy to oblige.

So, with that said- enter wedding month over on What Olivia Did. Because Olivia got married (!) GAH! When my friend Carrie got married, she did something similar over on her beautiful blog- so I thought I’d dedicate a couple of weeks of posting to all things wedding- from a big day round-up, picking the dress, our playlist (which is laughably probably the thing I feel the most precious about) and some of the most important things I’ve learnt too (including everything we think matters, that in fact, truly doesn’t). Selfishly, I’m excited to re-indulge in all of those happy memories- and perhaps see this as a coming back to work and talking to all my patient colleagues about our special day kind-of-thing. It truly was the most wonderful, unforgettable day (even if I did feel a bit of pressure around the ‘IT’LL BE THE HAPPIEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE!’ remarks) and I hope you’ll enjoy reliving it as much as I will. So, pop on this playlist (it’s a long one, so will probably last the month) and stay tuned and let’s rewind to May 2019…

    I’ve been DYING to read all about your big day so please don’t worry about boring us. I’ve been married for 6 years now and love living vicariously through other people’s wedding pics, considering things for the second time around (only kidding) x

    I love that you’re doing this! I actually got engaged 4 days ago and have absolutely no idea where to start – besides actually telling people we’re engaged. Super looking forward to reading all the posts for your tips and tricks! – Sophie 🙂
