Over On Luxe Bride

The date today is the 18th of July 2018. An inconsequential date that is just because. But. It is three days from the 21st of July 2018. A year ago to the day that The Husband and I got married in the eyes of God. (And it's likely, knowing me, I won't be able to blog … Continue reading Over On Luxe Bride

Part Of The Price Is The Experience

This post brought to you by oversearching Sherlock memes and still not finding the one I wanted. Weddings cost a lot. That goes without saying. The average UK wedding last year was £33,884 (Independent, Sept 2017), but I believe even that has gone up in the last year or so. More and more, with inflation … Continue reading Part Of The Price Is The Experience

Advice For Brides About Photography

You can find a whole bunch of advice about choosing your photographer and getting the most out of them online – but in actuality, I myself did not realise the kind of advice I needed about being a bride making decisions about wedding photography. Some of the harder things to decide when it comes down … Continue reading Advice For Brides About Photography

Quick Take Friday – Jobs, Vocations, & Being

(Or Saturday, but nobody’s counting. You can catch up with the rest of 7QTF at This Ain’t the Lyceum) ~1~ I am dancing again, woo! Managed to find (as if it were such a feat) a group in York who are pretty easy to reach and laid back, too. ~2~ This week has been nothing … Continue reading Quick Take Friday – Jobs, Vocations, & Being

Dropping The Miss

You may have noticed a few changes over the last couple of days. New headers, new themes, and a new tagline (sorta). That is because, in a couple of days, I will no longer be Miss Alexandrina. Not legally, anyway. I'll still be Miss in the sense of follow-me-round-a-Victorian-street, feed-the-birds, takea-your-picture-miss? I haven’t changed. I’m … Continue reading Dropping The Miss

10 Days and Counting…

10 days to go. I repeat, 10 days to go. This is not a drill!   What I have enjoyed the most about wedding planning: - Organising everything from scratch. I got so much praise from my arguably-disorganised venue coordinator when I sent over my tables of menu choices, and it had been something that … Continue reading 10 Days and Counting…

June 2017 Wrap Up

Like, did I actually a) blog and b) do a wrap up post?? Blame Cait @ PaperFury for inspiring me. (Photo by Katherine Hinzman) Reading I finished ADAMANT by Emma L Adams. Thoughts/Mini Review? 3 1/2 out of 5 stars. I liked it, and the characters were quirky, but it was a pretty chunky read, … Continue reading June 2017 Wrap Up

2 Months To Go

After Mass this evening, I was thinking about the ceremony that I will have had in exactly 2 months from now. The excitement of kneeling at the altar as I take the Blessed Sacrament as the institution of wife. The chance for me becoming the fuller version of myself ('levelling up' I believe is the … Continue reading 2 Months To Go

100 Days to Go (AKA, I Don’t Have a Clue)

I am eternally impressed by other bloggers. Bloggers who have time and bloggers who have panache to say the things that I kind of just flop about like a dead fish saying. The lovely Carrie-Ann Dring of Something Definitely Happened started her blog to document the British wedding. So to speak. People get married every … Continue reading 100 Days to Go (AKA, I Don’t Have a Clue)

101 Shades of Teal

As luck would have it, my bridesmaid dress plans are almost in as much tatters as I suspect the swatches/samples of dresses would be now. It's an arduous story that starts with one of Alexa's wild ideas. Madly out of my price-range, but what if my girls were dress in shades of blues and greens, … Continue reading 101 Shades of Teal
