A Whirlwind Wedding
After lurking for several months and reading so many brilliant accounts of wedding planning, I've finally decided to try my hand at detailing my own preparations, albeit quite late - only 52 days until "I do"!
At best, people will read and comment.... At worst, I'll have a record to look back on......but I'm hoping someone out there might like reading as much as I'm enjoying hearing all about others' plans.
In August last year, a good friend persuaded me to sign up to an online dating site after she met a lovely man on there herself. I reluctantly agreed, although truthfully didn't hold out much hope after a lifetime of poor choices! I took up the challenge, though, with the words "you only get out of something what you put in" ringing in my ears. By mid October, I had had several first (and final!) dates, as well as meeting up with a couple of men more than once. After one particularly bad second date, I came to the conclusion that I was clearly doing something wrong, and changed my "search criteria" (sounds awful, like shopping...).
That very afternoon, I made contact with a decent -sounding man, and after messaging one another for hours and discovering lots in common, we arranged to meet (I'm not one for months of emails....always feel that meeting up is the only way to judge chemistry).
