Megan's Top Wedding Tips

Just in case you're in the market. I can honestly say it was the best day I can ever remember, so if you'd like to hear how we did it, read on....

#1 Marry someone you adore to the end of their fingertips (seriously, I love his fingertips). Sounds obvious, seems like a lot of people overlook it.

#2 Get a dress that makes you feel like a gazillion dollars, but that is not actually a gazillion dollars. Seriously, the MONEY people spend on ONE DRESS that they will wear ONCE. I adored my dress but the fact that I got it for considerably less than a gazillion dollars meant that I didn't have to freak out when it ended up a bit frayed by my bracelet, and a wee tiny bit covered in red wine and Guiness by the end of the night.

#3 If you can persuade them, get someone you love to perform at your ceremony, not some random strangers. My brothers played and sang this song and it made me cry. In a really good way.

#4 If you can, at all, have some of the day at home. We had drinks in my granny's house, then lunch in my mum's (they are next door to each other). It was lovely. You should try to do it because home is home and function rooms are not and they often have weird carpets.

#5 Have the party in your favourite local pub. Everyone will have the best time, if our party is anything to go by. Plus strangers tell you you're beautiful all night, and you'll never have to buy a drink. What's not to love?


  1. This will probably seem very strange and like I am a mad internet stalker (I'm not, promise), but I've been reading your blog for a while now (I can't remember how I found it, but I'm hoping to move to Berlin next year, so it was probably from some Googling about how to do it on no money!) and I just wanted to say congratulations on getting hitched! Lovely pic, and sounds like it was a lovely day too.

  2. Thanks, it was! And don't worry, I love a good bit of internet stalking. I do it fairly often myself.

    Let me know if I can be of assistance with Berlin tips. Of all the big cities of the world to do on no money, Berlin's yer man.
