Dropping The Miss

You may have noticed a few changes over the last couple of days. New headers, new themes, and a new tagline (sorta). That is because, in a couple of days, I will no longer be Miss Alexandrina. Not legally, anyway. I'll still be Miss in the sense of follow-me-round-a-Victorian-street, feed-the-birds, takea-your-picture-miss? I haven’t changed. I’m … Continue reading Dropping The Miss

10 Days and Counting…

10 days to go. I repeat, 10 days to go. This is not a drill!   What I have enjoyed the most about wedding planning: - Organising everything from scratch. I got so much praise from my arguably-disorganised venue coordinator when I sent over my tables of menu choices, and it had been something that … Continue reading 10 Days and Counting…

June 2017 Wrap Up

Like, did I actually a) blog and b) do a wrap up post?? Blame Cait @ PaperFury for inspiring me. (Photo by Katherine Hinzman) Reading I finished ADAMANT by Emma L Adams. Thoughts/Mini Review? 3 1/2 out of 5 stars. I liked it, and the characters were quirky, but it was a pretty chunky read, … Continue reading June 2017 Wrap Up

2 Months To Go

After Mass this evening, I was thinking about the ceremony that I will have had in exactly 2 months from now. The excitement of kneeling at the altar as I take the Blessed Sacrament as the institution of wife. The chance for me becoming the fuller version of myself ('levelling up' I believe is the … Continue reading 2 Months To Go

100 Days to Go (AKA, I Don’t Have a Clue)

I am eternally impressed by other bloggers. Bloggers who have time and bloggers who have panache to say the things that I kind of just flop about like a dead fish saying. The lovely Carrie-Ann Dring of Something Definitely Happened started her blog to document the British wedding. So to speak. People get married every … Continue reading 100 Days to Go (AKA, I Don’t Have a Clue)

101 Shades of Teal

As luck would have it, my bridesmaid dress plans are almost in as much tatters as I suspect the swatches/samples of dresses would be now. It's an arduous story that starts with one of Alexa's wild ideas. Madly out of my price-range, but what if my girls were dress in shades of blues and greens, … Continue reading 101 Shades of Teal

The Wedding Dress Wait

I've been watching Say Yes to the Dress (don't shoot me) as a background programme for when I've been editing. I don't know if it's a bride-to-be or girl thing, but I love seeing the preparations and choices other brides are making. The world is such a varied place, with so any different ideas, and … Continue reading The Wedding Dress Wait
