We are celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary on 5th August 2019, and to mark this milestone on my blog, I thought I would re-share everything about it! I’ve not read those posts for many years, and it would be nice for me to re-live the planning of the biggest party I’ve ever organised! And of course, share these ideas with newer readers who might be planning their own wedding.
Steve and I got engaged on 13th March 2008, with the wedding set for August 2009. I started planning from the moment the gorgeous ring that he gave to me went onto my finger!
The photo below is of my engagement ring and wedding band; I took this photo we took whilst on honeymoon. The rings were white gold with diamonds and had a cross over pattern that I just fell in love with.
I didn’t start The Purple Pumpkin Blog until November 2011, but one of the things that led me on the path to it was my wedding blog called “98 Days and Counting” The blog is still there, and it’s fun to read back on and see my thoughts from the time. I believe that it is mostly words and little to no images now. I had planned to start the blog at 100 days out but was so busy I just didn’t get around to doing it!
I (we!) planned our big day for over a year, I lived and breathed that wedding, and it really was everything we dreamed and more. The days leading up to Wednesday, 5th August 2009 were horrid. Rain…grey skies…I was even buying white umbrellas the day before, just in case, but it turned out to be the most gloriously sunny and hot day, and those brollies are now long gone!
I still get emotional looking back at our wedding photos, and I can’t wait to share everything that we planned. To be honest, I look back and can’t quite believe how much I DIY’d and organised for our perfect day. ❤
Here is the index for all the different aspects of our day, and the posts that I shared about them. I hope you will enjoy reading about our big day!
