    As if I need to ask, but will you be doing an inspiration board (and then share it with your less than clued up fellow brides? :P)
    We've moved our date back to August 2013 but the luxury of time sorta stresses me out more, if that makes sense! Having too much choice and all 😛
    Congrats again, I know it'll be spectacular 😀

    1. I will Honey… but please rest assured that I am as clueless as you are, who knew there was so much to think about??

  2. What a great day to pick! My wedding anniversary is 6th November and it was one of those lovely autumnal days, and we had fire works! Hope the planning goes well x

  3. If any woman could pull off a beautiful wedding in that amount of time – you can. Remember to enjoy it!
    As for the latest Housekeeper circle post: abso-bloody-lutely! I'm so pleased that someone else agrees with me that love isn't in ironing underpants at midnight. I try to keep an organised home so it gives me more time to spend 'making memories' with my children. Not because I want them to remember me slaving over the dishes for years on end. To me, housekeeping is a means to an end and as I have to do it, I might as well find ways to make it a little less tiresome.
    P.S Good luck with the wedding plans!

  4. Oh my goodness!!!
    How lovely, it will be a wonderful Autumn Wedding!
    Now if you need any pretty wedding items do pop along & visit me as I have quite a few pretties!

  5. I had a special note book to keep all details of my planning in- appointments, inspirations, adverts and Uncle Tom Cobbley and all! It is a treasured keepsake now. (It was long before I had a computer or the web had exploded…none of the ads have in them!)
    And as for the diet…Dukan does it. No doubt, no ifs and buts, it just works. I guarentee it. Happy days dear Alison!

  6. Congratulations Alison and Richard! Best Wishes to you. Alison, dear, please do not try to lose half your body weight in three months, you will compromise your health and sanity. No dress is worth it. Richard loves you as you are. 25 pounds, is that about 12 k? will be plenty enough to make people say "Darling, you look wonderful!" Lots of skim milk yogurt.

  7. How brilliant to choose November 5! Take a deep breath and don't give in to the crazy making stuff, Alison dear. What is most important is you, your sweetheart, Finn, and family and friends. Add in pretty flowers, yummy food, and a few sweet touches and it will be perfection!

  8. I am so happy for you Alison! Thanks for sharing the link to the Vincent Hotel too, it looks fab. I'm busy planning my January wedding at the moment (that's summer where I'm from), so it will be interesting to hear about all your experiences. Best of luck! xxx

  9. Oh how wonderful! Ok so the time will go by like a flash, but in my experience that happens no matter what the length of the engagement! What a beautiful venue, and every good wish! xxx

  10. PS I know you have a million ideas of your own….but ooh, bridesmaids holding candles rather than flowers, fireworks as you leave, and sparklers in teeny heart shaped cupcakes…..its going to be a sparkly wonderful brocante-extravaganza of loveliness!

  11. Oooh – gorgeous venue! And Art Deco – a perfect era for simple elegance with just a touch of glamour!!! SO many ideas…….. November, I'm thinking slinky long silk number (easily done/found in that time frame) with a faux fur shrug, 'diamond' brooches, candles, fairy lights, cocktails of the era, a jazz/blues band perhaps……. I can see it all!!! Wowee, what a dreamy wedding it will be! x

  12. Congratulations! I'm so happy for you, Richard, and Finley. I've been reading your blog for years now, and this is very happy news!

  13. Oooooh Alison… We will share an anniversary as we were married on November 5, also! I planned it myself, and kept everything simple enough to put it all together ourselves. We rented an historic house, had a gorgeous cake delivered, the Judge came, a solo hammer dulcimer musician, and me in my wedding dress I spent weeks sewing myself. We took our honeymoon on a drive to the Oregon coast, and the yellow autumn leaves mesmerized me. It will always be so special in my mind, as yours will be for you. I'm so happy for you.

  14. I love Fall weddings, Alison! Our anniversary is November 3, and this year is our 10th. 🙂 I am looking forward to seeing what you plan!!

  15. Gosh, there is so much to think about, but at least having a soon-ish deadline does make one get on with it?! Alison, you are just going to LOVE pouring your creative soul into planning the details of your wedding. Finally, it's happening, and it's just perfect, all of it. Enjoy every minute. Looking forward to hearing snippets about your plans (I kept my plans, brochures, clippings etc in a binder, in plastic sleeves – a lovely keepsake), but also to seeing the photos come November!
