Vlog #4: Here Comes The Bride

It's vloggin' time again...

My niece, Tina, and her partner, Bryan got engaged recently (YAY!). Anyhow, I think Tina is going to make one excellent wedding planner, because she's been there and done that - in the sense that she's been a bridesmaid many, many times (it's unusual to find her at a wedding where she isn't one - she's just one popular gal). 

In addition to that, Tina and I planned a wedding together many, many years ago. Like, when I was about 11 and she was 10. You'll have to watch to find out which celebrity's (yes...celebrity) wedding we planned. ;) 

You'll be glad to note that when I originally filmed this vlog, it was 7.26 minutes (yes - ask any of my friends - I have the ability to crap on when I want to). I was able to reduce it down to under 6mins. LOTS of interesting info in there though, so I'm sure you'll enjoy.

Now go make yourself a cuppa, pull up your favourite desk chair or similar, and enjoy my latest vlog. (Apologies to those who can't watch these. You can double-click and watch on You Tube if you wish too.)

Kids toys, they're just frigging hilarious aren't they ? Loved your story about Babs' quest for true love, I think around here, she is only finding happiness at the bottom of a wine bottle. Poor old Babs. x

Look at you!

A small confession: I have never, not once, not ever been a bridesmaid. So I think (at the age of 39 1/4) that my fate will be to only be the bride, never the bridesmaid! I can live with that. x

Jodie i just LOVE your vlogs.
Firstly congrats to your niece. I do so hope that fluro ribbons will be incorprated into her wedding some how!
To answer your question, no not married, but i have almost every detail planned (strangely, as i was NOT a wedding person before meeting my partner). I would like a small wedding. Like to said each to their own, nothing wrong with a big thing, but i am a very private person, especially regarding my family, and so i am thinking something with just family and a very very small scattering of our very very best friends (who obviously will be those who are like family anyway, lol). It's not a money thing, although that is a bonus that it costs us less, it's just a me thing and i don't like that some adults don't grow out of being gossips in the bad kind of way. Lol.
I have to echo Maxibella, i too have NEVER been a bridesmaid. Boo hoo for me! I've never been to a hen's night either. I have been a flower girl, twice, once at 2 and the other at 7 to my Uncle/Aunts weddings. I've actually caught the bouquet twice too...

Gorgeous! You've missed your vocation.

You know all about my wedding because I blogged about it.
And now I'm thinking about doing it again for our 10th anniversary....I dunno....??
