Back where it all began…
Good times and tan lines
Sun, sand and a ring on my hand
Last week, I was presented with an amazing card which thoughtfully included the lyrics of some old-school songs adapted as my list of what to pack. The only clue I got from this was that I need some white swimwear which I'm guessing might mean pool party? Surely you can't really go to Marbella without going to one?! Other than that, I have no idea what's in store, but I just know that with the amount of effort that has gone into planning –it will be the best weekend with so many of my favourite people.
The bride tribe
- Give as much notice as possible for an abroad hen. It is expensive, so it is best to get the budget out as early as possible and stick to it. Also, don't be offended if people are unable to come – it is a big ask for people to go away with you when attending a wedding is already quite expensive.
- Do your research and make sure you book a good location for what you want to do. I was lucky that I had lived in the area before so knew where it was good to stay and where things are. If you aren't sure, look up reviews and do your research online.
- Trust your bridesmaids! They are your bridesmaids for a reason. I was involved initially (because I couldn't help myself), but I am so excited for the surprises as they know me inside out and will have organised the most fantastic weekend for us all.
