Bride to Be Diaries: Introducing The Glitzy Bride!

Good morning one and all!

I hope you’re all recovered from the weekend, especially all of you Cwtchfest2017 attendees! We are not recovered  Everything aches and I want to fall asleep everywhere, but we are still so over the moon about how fantastic it was, it spurs us on!

So we are back to introduce you to another of our gorgeous new Bride and Grooms to be! Today we have the beautiful Sophie, aka, The Glitzy Bride.  No point in me rambling on, I will hand over to Sophie herself to tell you all about herself and her husband to be.  Over you to Glitzy…..

Hello you lovely lot of Cwtch readers!!

I’m over the moon to have won the competition to blog all things wedding, from menu tastings to finding THE dress, anyway before I get in to all that let me introduce myself and give you a little background on HTB (hubs to be) & I…

Lets start with the basics, I’m Sophie & I’m a 24 year old admin worker from Swansea (does this make me sound like I’m on a game show?!), I live in a small town just outside the city centre and work as a Receptionist for the same company as HTB!

Sean (a fitness instructor) & I met a little over 4 years ago and like every great love story it started at 3am in a less than classy night club when he ‘accidentally’ knocked my drink over (subtle!)

Two years later we took our first proper couples holiday to New York. On the final night of our trip we attended a Knicks Game at Madison Square Gardens, and just as the world famous ‘kiss cam’ appeared above us I turned to find Hubs to Be down on one knee with a small opened box in his hand revealing the most beautiful ‘Art Deco’ inspired ring, after a squeaked ‘yes’ from myself & some excited phone calls to family back home…the rest is history!

We’re now T- 6 months until ‘I do’!!

Growing up I never really envisioned what my big day would look like, however with a little help from good old Pinterest & some inspo from the one & only Kimmie K we had our theme: Full Blown GLAM. We decided on White, Silver & Tiffany Blue with LOTS of flowers (I mean Kim and Kanye’s 6 ft flower walls didn’t cost that much right?).

I like to imagine it as a Champagne Wedding on a Lemonade Budget, we’re doing pretty much everything ourselves, right down to the last diamante. So expect a few stressed out posts, some honesty and hopefully a few laughs along our wedding journey, with a hint of sparkle for good measure!

From here on out I’ll be known (quite accurately) as The “Glitzy’ Bride… 

I’m so excited to share our Wedding Planning Adventures with all the Cwtch Bride to Be’s and can’t wait to walk down the aisle in August!

Yippeeeeee! Isn’t she lovely! We cannot wait to find out more about the engagement and shopping and planning! Said tuned for her next instalment! x

Introducing the New Brides and Groom To Be Winners!

As, you know, through December and January, we ran a competition to find our new 2017/18 Bride and Grooms to Be bloggers!

We received hundreds and hundreds of entries, but we have managed to find 8 amazing new bloggers who are ready to tell you all their planning stories.

Whether it is exciting news, annoying news, joyous stories or ‘about to pull my hair out if the parents don’t stop going about inviting Auntie Maureen whom I’ve never met’ stories, they’re hear to tell you all.

They are ready to share and inspire and we are so excited to have a new batch of wonderful writers in the Cwtch the Bride family.

Over the next few weeks, we will be giving you an in-depth introduction to them all, but for now, feast your eyes on your new brides and grooms and their new name – each should give you a clue about their story!!
