So, you’re engaged and have now taken the first few steps. You may have chosen a date for your wedding too! In my mind, the next logical thing to organise would probably be the venue. I actually chose my dress before I decided on a venue, but in some cases you may wish to pick your venue first in case you have a theme or become inspired to have one that links into it. I personally think there are four main things that need to be considered:
Engagement ring – does size matter?
As I’ve previously mentioned, when Dave and I got engaged I was 18 and he’d turned 19 the day before. He was in college, only had a Saturday job and most of his money from that went towards petrol and car maintenance in order to get to work and college. As such, he didn’t have much money spare to buy me an engagement ring and had put a lot of the money he received for his birthday the day before towards it.

Engaged? Congratulations! But now what?
Congratulations, you’re engaged! You’ve got a beautiful ring on your finger, a token of love from (hopefully) the man or woman of your dreams. But now what? Here’s my guide to the first steps towards your wedding or civil partnership and a wonderful future together!
10 Reasons why I love my husband
Today is Valentine’s Day and it’s made me think about all the reasons why I love my husband. I think as time goes on and when the dynamics of a relationship change after you have a child, it’s quite common for couples to undervalue each other and not appreciate each other enough a lot of the time. Dave usually reads all my blog posts before they go live, he’s so supportive of my blog (and anything I do, actually). He doesn’t know that I’m writing this one though, so I guess this is kind of my way of saying “I might not always show it, but I love and appreciate you so much! Happy Valentine’s Day, darling!” I know he’ll have a huge smile when this pops up in his inbox this morning.
