100 thoughts I had on my Wedding Day

  1. I’m getting married today. TODAY!!
  2. It’s still dark. Why am I awake? Tad excited I suspect
  3. Not as excited as my niece and flower girl, Holly
    Who gets up and shouts ‘ooh this floor is cold’ at the top of her voice. I’m awake. Again. Might as well get up (it’s 5.30am).
  4. When is the farmer coming to cook breakfast? (this is not as odd as it sounds – we stayed in a farmhouse the night before!)
  5. Games with Holly in the kitchen to keep her occupied. She loves her teddy (which she will carry in place of flowers) and her Here Comes The Bride flag.10363959_798224390188667_6309192217888875045_n
  6. There’s going to be big bags under my eyes, thank god I’m getting my make-up done by someone who knows what they’re doing
  7. When is the farmer coming to cook breakfast?
  8. Might as well shower now, before everyone gets up
  9. The farmer is here, to cook breakfast!
  10. It’s snowing.
  11. Is it bad luck to see Mr Wedmother before the ceremony? I just want a little kiss…
  12. Oh dear god it’s noisy when 14 people have breakfast together in one room
  13. It’s still snowing. Not proper nice big white fluffy flakes though. Nope, it’s sleety sloppy cold wet flakes.

  15. Back out of the car, give gifts (cufflinks) to dad and best manImage result for wedding cufflinks
  16. Kiss husband-to-be again

  18. Not keen on being in the back but I might get some shut-eye on the 40 minute journey
  19. It’s sleeting. Sideways.
  20. The crocuses have all gone. I was so hoping for a photo in that little glade20180322_124503This was the crocuses on our anniversary in 2018. There were not there on our wedding day!
  21. Has the second shoot photographer turned up at the farmhouse to photograph the boys? (frantic text). Yep. Phew.
  22. I’m glad I chose to get ready downstairs, just looking at those three flights makes my feet twitch
  23. Is my brother here yet? Pretty sure he is good with tech, he can set up the Skype for the reading and my mum
  24. The hairdresser’s here. Wait…shouldn’t I have my make-up base on by now, then?
  25. What do you mean my make-up artist isn’t here, and isn’t coming????? (I had many more words than this in this particular thought. But I’m too much of a lady to type them!!!)
  26. No, I don’t fancy popping to Sainsbury’s to buy some make-up for my wedding day! That will not take care of the 5.30am bags.

  33. Hang on a minute….if my make-up artist isn’t here who’s going to sing while we sign the register
  34. Who has a make-up artist that sings as well as doing make-up?
    (Venue offers for young barman to sing for us with his guitar. He doesn’t know the song but he learns it as he goes to pick up his guitar. What a superstar)
  35. Noon? How the heck did that happen?
  36. Ughh I really dislike tights
  37. Is it too early to open the champers? No.
  38. Ooh chilled fizzy goodness, perfect
  39. Oh no, message from my friend in Oz – she’s not well so won’t be able to do the reading live. Good job she pre-recorded it for me in case of emergency
  40. Must tell brother to set up recording instead of Skpye
  41. Why are people here already?
