Mint To Be

Sunday, 20 April 2014

I want to start by saying that I have no plans to turn Cocktails & Daydreams into a wedding blog, so if you're worried that I'm going to start churning out posts about centrepieces and bunting then rest assured, that's not going to happen. On the other hand, if you do love all things wedding then the best thing to do is follow me on Pinterest because I'm going wedding DAFT over there.

Which leads me nicely into this post which is going to be a little sneak peek into my wedding plans so far. Building a pinterest board of ideas is pretty much as far as we've got in terms on planning at the moment - and as you can see the idea is ALL MINT EVERYTHAAANG.

We've roughly decided on a date (September 2015) and the type of wedding we want (outdoor/DIY) and emailed a couple of venues for initial quotes so we know how much we need to save (emmm lots). I also bought myself a wedding planning folder from Paperchase the other day and wrote a big list of everything we need to organise over the next year and a half - it's crazy how much there is to think about, so many decisions, argh! Luckily I love planning so I'm quite excited about getting started.

The next step is to go view a couple of venues and then on the 4th of May I'm going to my first wedding fair with my mum through in Glasgow, exciting times!


  1. I love mint so much. It's such a girly colour!

  2. Awwww! I am practically weeping! This is beautiful & I might cry a lot xxx

  3. I always think of you when I see mint things, so that's a perfect colour scheme! Have you thought of Kirknewton stables as a venue btw? I've seen a few handmade/outdoorsy ones done there xx

    1. Yeah Kirknewton is on our list! It looks amazing, and is basically exactly what we're looking for in a venue, going to arrange a viewing soon :) x

  4. I'm far too excited about this Lynne!! I love mint as a colour scheme, it's such a fresh clean looking one <3
