The honeymoon plans are the easiest thing as we've already decided what we want to do - American road trip. I've never actually been to America (we both live in the UK) and we wanted something a bit adventurous, not a beach package holiday. Something where we can decide what we do and when we do it. The plan is to fly to Florida and work our way along the southern States doing all of the stereotypical tourist things we can. American friends, I will be bugging you for information at some point in the future!
The wedding is more tricky. The sheer amount of things to organise and the cost is a bit daunting. We are lucky in that our local registry office is beautiful (see picture) and we've agreed to get married there. I'm going to ring on Monday and officially book the date. We're hoping to hire a lovely Italian restaurant near us for the reception. I'm going to start wedding dress shopping in a few weeks. I know I want a knee-length wedding dress with straps, which will probably be quite difficult to find.
We both want our wedding to be quite relaxed and low-key. I want people to see it as a nice day out rather than as a big thing.
Wish me luck with all the planning!
