Wedding planning blog since 2010

Real Wedding was born in 2010 when Lucy was planning her shoestring wedding. Lucy and Andy were brave enough to self-cater their beach-side Cornwall wedding in November 2010, and produced nearly everything themselves including the wedding stationery, bouquets and venue decorations.

A bargain hunter through and through, Lucy was proud to import her wedding dress – a handmade, very delicate 1930s dress – from America. The dress was bought on Ebay for £60 and luckily the 26inch waist dress fit (after a lot of dieting, and patching up the disintigrated fabric!)

I have created a full guide on how best to create your wedding vows to show your partner just how special they are on your wedding day.
