What’s the Blunt bride up to?

If your wondering why the lack of communication from the blunt bride lately, it’s because I’m super busy getting ready for my own wedding.

With 6 weeks to go now is the time to clarify what’s left to be done and plan a list of actions nice and early to prevent any last minute stress.

At the moment I’m embroiled in making my bridesmaids dresses ready for final fittings in the next few weeks (make your own dresses step by step blog to follow on completion).

I’ve been attending church services liaising with my parish church and the church I’ll be married in for the reading of the banns in order to obtain the vital marriage certificate, and confirmed wedding rehearsal dates with the vicar and wedding party members required.

I’ve had time to recover from my hen do in Ibiza and have enlisted my faithful bridesmaids to coordinate a meal with female family members from my and my h2b’s family so they are all comfortably acquainted before the big day.

The list of guests is pretty much finalised and I’ve used the great guest planner tool on wedding spot.co.uk to create a preliminary table plan. Though don’t be alerted I’m quite early with my table planning this is something you would usually tackle a few weeks to a month before the big event.

All my trials for make up and hair are booked in and I’m very excited to be pampered, I’ve been crafty and organised for the make up trial to be the same day as my ladies night meal so I get some mileage out of the glam.

The dress is bought and paid for, initial fitting is complete and final fitting due in a few weeks. I even have a evening dress which is less restrictive for my late night wedding disco once the band has finished.

Table numbers and menus are all ready to be printed and the order of service has gone to print after a careful check over from the vicar.

So I am pretty much organised, my objective is to get as much done in advance on the final month as possible which fingers crossed I’m track for.

Stay tuned for a bulk load of blogs over the final few weeks when wedmin goes into over drive.

Table Planner Tool

Looking for a quick and easy way to end the table plan headache…Well I can strongly recommend the table planner software on www.weddingspot.co.uk

Just log on to the Wedding Spot and register for free as a bride to be then head to the ‘My Weddings’ tab. You’ll need to add your guests, which is a good exercise as you can allocated a menu type e.g. vegetarian, adult, child, nut allergy etc and also associate a guest if your dealing with couples or children.

Once all your guests are uploaded you can quickly select table shape be it round rectangle and seats per table 6,8,10,12 to create your table layout in room then just drag and drop your guests from the side tab on the tables.

I can’t recommend this enough for brides to be, I’ve been mulling over how bad putting it will be putting together the seating plan for ages and I actually managed to complete my seating plan in 30mins using this bit of kit.
