Happy New Year to you all and thank you for coming across to read my blog.
This year, I’ve decided that making unrealistic new year resolutions is, well, just pointless. (Let’s face it, I’ve never made it past January 3rd on my sugarless diet and 6am gym sessions) Instead, I’ve decided to step outside my comfort zone and work on some goals I’ve had on the long finger for quite a while.
So my first intention for 2019 is to write a monthly blog. This is something I have wanted to do for a long time but it was always put on the back burner…perhaps because I had no idea what to blog about, but it’s also possible the fear of putting my thoughts, opinions and expertise out there has been holding me back. But, I’ve really had an urge to write and since I love weddings… that seems like a good place to start!
So why would I write about weddings you ask? Okay, here’s the thing… I know a little more about weddings than just ‘I love weddings!’
Firstly, I have been running my own wedding accessory business for a few years now and I get to work with brides on a daily basis. I follow the ever changing trends, and as I generally hand-make all my own products, I am constantly researching to keep up with all the upcoming styles.
Secondly, my family own the most stunning wedding venue (photo below of Kilmore Country House – credit to Paul Acorn Images) so I see first hand the trending wedding themes. Food, dresses, flowers, favors, s’mores, sparklers, first dances, cocktails and mocktails – I get to see them all!
And finally through both businesses, I have had the privilege of meeting so many talented suppliers within the wedding industry, whom I can now call friends. SO… luckily for all my readers I’ll be able to tease experience, expertise and top tips from some of the best suppliers in Northern Ireland and keep you up to date with ‘what’s hot right now!’ I will also be helping all you budget savvy brides to bag a bargain with suppliers and a whole host of money saving tips to help you plan your wedding!
So, is this a ‘Pre-blog, blog’? Or a ‘Blog about a blog’? Either way, I think you’ve got the jist of what the content will be!
Blogs will be published monthly…exact date can neither be confirmed nor guaranteed…my 3 year old wouldn’t allow me to commit in such a fashion! But keep tuned to my Instagram page for updates on my first piece on ‘Wedding Savers’. As the name suggests we’ll be talking about all the money saving tips you can take advantage of when booking your wedding. Exciting!!
