New year; new focus

Happy New Year you lovely lot. And sorry it’s been so long…

Soon after starting this blog, my father-in-law to-be became very poorly, and all of Mr Me & Thee’s nights were spent at the hospital, organising housing, and being a general superhero. After that, we decided to focus on having a wonderful Christmas and start afresh in the New Year.

So here we are. Ready and raring to go. And we’ve achieved quite a bit in terms of wedding planning too…which is rather fortuitous, as yesterday marked the TEN MONTH countdown to our nuptials!!! How did that happen so quickly???

In a nutshell: I FINALLY decided on my wedding dress (more about that to come); Mr Me & Thee’s fierce groom outfit is mostly complete; I’ve settled on the all-important hair stylist (this was always a major source of stress for me as I am super precious about my locks); we bagged an awesome deal on our videographer (thanks to our superb photographer’s handy contacts); I found the perfect dress for my Maid of Honour; my ma ordered her exquisite Mother of the Bride gown; we nabbed swanky suit jackets for our dads – and we’ve snapped up loads of cool things for venue dressing!

We will of course be blogging about all of those things in far more detail over the coming weeks. But for now, we’d love to know how your wedding planning is coming along!

Leave us a comment or drop us a mail – it’s always good to hear from you and share the joy (and stress).

Spotlight On…Coco & Kate

Coco & Kate

Coco & Kate is one of the few bridal boutiques that really lives up to the hype. By ‘hype’, I mean the magical place you envisage upon getting engaged…where wedding dress dreams are made.

Nestled in the quaint village of Hatton in Warwickshire (we saw an actual peacock majestically roaming the cobbles on our approach), Coco & Kate is everything a bridal boutique should be: welcoming, intimate, and superbly stylish.

I’m a self-confessed girlie-girl, and everything — from the exquisitely-scented candles and cute-as-a-button cupcakes, to the delicate blush roses and deliciously pink Prosecco — spoke to my love of all things feminine. What’s more, Sophie (owner extraordinaire) is the epitome of warmth. She welcomed us with a hug and a smile, and I love people who hug and smile.

As soon as we walked through the door, we were made to feel effortlessly at home. Sophie guided us through the rows of exquisite dresses (but left us free to browse in the most leisurely of ways), brought us bubbles (and kept them topped up throughout our visit), and never once made me feel rushed (vital when you are prancing around playing princesses with a tiara on your head and a smile on your face).

Stockists of Watters, Anna Campbell, Martina Liana, Love Marley, and the inimitable Hayley Paige (I was lucky enough to be the first to try on the new ‘Dori’ gown — it’s a stunner), there really is something to delight every bride. And the accessories are to die for — think blinging jewellery, divine veils, breathtaking headpieces and stunning shoes.

So if you’re a bride-to-be looking for a wedding dress to wow, I can’t recommend this delightful bridal boutique highly enough. Thank you Coco and Kate; you rock!
