Milestone wedding cards

Wedding planning is exciting, stressful (and expensive) all rolled into one meaning it can be easy to forget those little memories it would be nice to remember! It bugs me looking at photos unable to remember when it was... if you've posted it that day on facebook then great it'll remind you but if like a lot of people you don't then it's so easy to forget. One little wedding thing is that I have been so shocked at prices people pay for things, I know some people dream of the perfect things and they can afford to do so but to us as a family spending a massive amount on one day it's just not something we would like to do (or can afford to do either...) we want to have a cute wedding surrounded by people we love, make memories together, seeing smiles on peoples faces and still be able to afford to feed our family afterwards so on my blog I'll be sharing lots of bargains I've found along the way - probably alot more after so we keep some secret from our guests should anyone I know actually read my blog hehe. I am loving planning little bits and bobs now, some people have annoyed me with their opinions but I'm going to be stubborn and have what we want now because at the end of the day it's our day. Hopefully it'll be just once right Michael??

On Saturday something really very cute arrived in the post, they fit in with the idea of a cute wedding (They also fit in perfectly with the idea of a huge wedding too) you may have seen me post a photo of them over on Instagram - Milestone cards! You've most probably seen the baby milestone cards which are super sweet, we had some for Isabelle but move over baby cards because now there's brand new Milestone wedding cards on the block and if you're planning your wedding then they are something you should purchase! They arrived just in time - about half an hour before we left to visit the florist and book our wedding flowers which I'll be blogging about soon. So I got to use my very first card before I had even had a proper look at them.

In the box you'll find 30 cards marking different milestones in your wedding planning which have been designed by fashion illustrator Danielle Kroll. They are decorated very cutely in a pastel, whimsical and timeless fashion. There's a place to write the date on each of the cards if you want to so that you can remember the exact date that it was taken which is a lovely little feature.

There's meeting with the florist, I said yes to the dress, deciding on the menu, the location is booked to name just a few and also some countdown ones which are a lovely way to share the countdown to your wedding in photos. Mine will probably be an excited face at 1 week before and then the night before the wedding will be a scared face!

They are definitely going to be very popular with brides-to-be so they can capture every special moment from YES! to I do. Wedding planning can be so fun and these cards mean you can share the fun on social media too. I have already started posting photos of them on instagram.

There's a poster included so you can tick off which you've done (I have added a little photo further down so you can see what that looks like) - a good way of remembering to complete them all as it's so often easy to forget.
There's also a few others included such as special cards for you to write what you like most about your future wife/husband. Hmmm I wonder what Michael will say about me!

I plan to share photos with you of the cards along the way in separate posts so I'll keep reminding readers where I got the cards but as we have been engaged for some time now (we are getting married in March) there are a few that I've already done and can't really work them into their own post so I'll share a photo of those with you here now. (The newly found Instagram love in me is thinking if only they were around before and Michael got me some with the ring..... haha! Good idea though hey?!) 

Aren't they really cute?! I am delighted with them and think they are a fantastic idea. I would definitely suggest them to a friend. I'll be posting more about Milestone Wedding Cards over the coming months in the wedding planning.
