Our Cretian June 2013 Wedding
I've been toying with creating a planning thread for a little while, but given the inspiration I have taken from a lot of your lovely threads I thought I would attempt it. Also, it would be good to have something to show for all the hours I spend on here every day
Quick bit of background. I am from Ireland and H2B is Scottish. We met in Dublin back in 2009 (where I lived) one weekend when he was over visiting his cousin (who I used to work with). He was dressed as a Nun, I had drank copious amounts of Vodka and his cousin had warned me off him....well that was enough of an incentive and the rest as they say is history.
We did the long distance thing for a year, seeing each other every 2nd weekend until finally we got fed up of leaving each other all the time, so I moved here in July 2010. A year later on July 28th he proposed in the garden of his parents house surrounded by outdoor tealights, we moved into our beautiful house and got our gorgeous baby.....A Golden Retriever called Riley.
Straight away we started planning our wedding with a view to having it in Ireland Decemember 2013. We booked to go home at the end of August for our Irish engagement party and to look at a number of venues. Very quickly I realised that getting married in Ireland was going to be very expensive, mostly due to my expensive tastes and the fact that we had to have a weekend wedding with people coming from all over. After lots of discussions and almost booking a venue in Ireland, we decided that getting married abroad was exactly what we wanted.
