What’s not to love about a wedding?
Our family celebrated our first wedding in November 2015 so I am officially a member of the MOB (Mother of the Bride). Our middle daughter married the love of her life with a weekend of celebrations in rural NSW, Australia. Many of the guests travelled half way around the world to get there! This post from the bride’s older sister tells the story in interview form –
Travel, Love and Weddings – Planning a wedding with someone from another country
Our youngest daughter was married to the love of her life in October 2017 in Fiji – a completely different sort of wedding. I am as pleased as punch to document some of my MOB#2 journey. My eldest daughter also wrote about her sister’s wedding- it’s a great read!
Travel, Love and Weddings – An elopement to a wedding abroad
These are my posts dedicated to some of my adventures along the way. Wedding #1 was the most amazing, happy and perfect day for all of us 🙂 and Wedding #2 was just as perfect.
I was featured in this story on Bridesmaid Confession –
What it’s really like to be the Mother of the Bride?
