d i r B x e s s u S a oon Tea with

Aftern

Bride: Hannah, 28, West Sussex Groom: Jon, 36, West Sussex Engaged: Friday 3rd April, 2009 Date of Wedding: Saturday 16th May, 2015

I met up with blushing bride to be, Hannah in the comfort didn’t! This leads me to my next question… of her home to discuss all things wedding planning over a cup of afternoon tea. How did you decide on your venue?

How involved is Jon in planning your wedding? VERY. He came wedding dress shopping with me to choose a dress and narrowed it down to the top three.

We looked at places to go to have it all in one place, but He is choosing the colour scheme, he is choosing could not really decide. Jon decided all he wanted was flowers, he chose the restaurant, he is choosing the good food, so we thought about restaurants that we like food. I say choosing, we are doing it together but he has that are local to us. We decided we would get married a BIG say! He knows what he likes, my part is more the at Pagham church, as it is a beautiful church and that is artistic side and finding all the ideas and he chooses where our children were christened. We decided to then which is best for us. We work well together. look at three restaurants we really like, but only ended up looking at one. For the evening we decided we wanted something quite fun, so we looked for somewhere we could set up our own casino and found an underground bar in Chichester. Have you set a budget for your wedding? We haven’t really set a budget, we have never saved for a wedding so we are just spending as we go along. My friend sent me an Excel spreadsheet that she used to budget her wedding so I have been using that as a guide. Are you both having a wedding ring?

Will you be adding a DIY elements to your wedding? I have been using Pintrest and will be making my own centre pieces, bouquets, button holes and will also make my own chalk boards. Have you chosen your wedding dress? Yes I have! I have gone to Bijou Boutique and bought one of their dresses and it's lovely. I would advise any bride to go there, even if they do not want a preloved dress there are sample dresses too!

I went there because it felt

comfortable and they have a variety of dresses. I am

Yes we are both having one Jon has an engagement ring actually going to pick up my dress today, its all very that is actually a wedding ring, so I thought he was going exciting! Hannah is beaming and it is so lovely to chat to to keep that. But then he decided that he wanted a an excited bride, full of ideas and adding a truly personal diamond band, which he is not getting now. I have never touch to their day. heard of a man having an engagement ring, maybe this Thank you Hannah, and best of luck planning your is the new thing! He was jealous that I had one and he big day! x x x
