Medieval wedding

2 Comments

We are getting married!

And, to make it all more fun, it will of course be a medieval wedding!

Now, when the invitations are out, I can finally write about it. Some friends think we have been a bit secret about the whole thing, but the fact is that we wanted to wait until we had date and place booked before we told everyone. That, and the fact that we are a bit lazy getting things done. I really am a deadline person- I work best when the time to wrap things up is upon me.

So, this summer we will have a medieval wedding with friends and family. I’m starting to feel quite exciting about the whole thing, but also I’ve realised there’s a lot of planning involved with a wedding (good thing that I have a background as a larp and medieval event organizier). Of course, H is also doing his share, but fortunately we are interested in different details of the wedding. As you have already guessed, I’m sewing our clothes, while H is more interested in the weddingcake or thinking about what kind of drinks we should have- fine with me!

Since both our families aren’t that into medieval things we decided to keep it all quite simple- medieval inspired foods, drinks and games, and a plea to our guest to dress for the occasion to the best of their effort. I also have planned to make some sets of clothes for family members that aren’t that into medieval clothing…

Naturally, the wedding will take some time and energy to plan, which means that the blog (mostly tutorials) will have to take a step back for some time- but I won’t abandon you. There will still be updates from events, photos of new garments and of course some more wedding-themed writing. So stay tuned!
