I'm very new to this, but having read some of the other lovely planning threads, stories and advice I thought it would be nice to try my own!
First, I'll tell you about my H2B and myself:
We have been together for 6 years, after meeting at conservatoire (we are both professional musicians). We'd actually been in the same youth orchestras since we were about 13, and I had always heard how lovely he is, but we never spoke! We ended up at the same conservatoire (music college/ university equivalent) and got together after a drunken evening of dancing at the summer ball at the end of our first year! We went on a date a week later and have been together ever since, and now will get married on 3 August 2019.
We're now professional musicians (I'm a cellist and he is an extremely talanted vibraphonist/percussionist) and somehow trying to save up for a wedding on a freelance musicians income! Any pieces of advice for ways to cut costs and still have a beautiful day are very welcome! Especially anything crafty/artsy as I'd love it to be quite homemade and any excuse for a day of art /glitter would go down well with me and my mum!
I'll gradually let you know how things are going and would love to hear all about yours too!
