Another big event coming up later in the year, is our wedding. We are very excited about planning our big day....actually the Builder is more excited than me, and is organising most of it. It will not be a small event, but rather large! Or larger than I ever imagined my wedding would be. If I organised it, then we would be straight to the registry office, followed by a loooong picnic lunch at one of the gardens in Melbourne, just the two of us.

We are planning it as a plastic free and zero waste wedding, which we think we can pull off. My biggest concern is food waste.

We kicked things off with a second hand engagement ring. I never wanted one. While they are a beautiful statement, personally, I did not understand the need for them. Then my Mum offered the Builder an old ring of hers and he surprised me with it a couple days after. It's nice to have something from my Mum. I have already decided to wear an old ring of hers as my wedding band too. 

I am also going to reuse a dress that I have, rather than buy a new one. But more on that later...

So, for all those that have planned weddings, what tips would you have? I'll pass them onto the wedding planner ;)
