Oh, I'm such a tease! Well, it's maybe not quite as good as shoes (good guess though Mum), but I am still very excited to announce that I have a wedding graduate post up on A Practical Wedding today. Yay!

Although wedding planning is definitely fun (dresses! shoes! pretty pictures!), it isn't always easy. You don't often hear people talking about how your wedding is not going to be "perfect" (but how that's ok); how it is the marriage, not the wedding, that really counts; and how stressful, overwhelming and, occasionally, lonely it is to be The Bride. That, for me, is where A Practical Wedding comes in. I found Meg's blog when I was in the very depths of wedding planning despair and it kept me going when I was ready to hurl my lovingly handcrafted place settings out the window. It is my Favourite Wedding Blog Ever.

So I am extremely honoured to "officially" become a part of Team Practical, and just hope that my post might provide a little morsel of comfort to some other bride out there who, like me, might be doubting herself or her choices. To that bride: Don't worry! It's your wedding! Whatever you do, it will be amazing!
