About Me

Hello, & Welcome All Brides to Be!


If you have stumbled upon my blog, it is likely that you are planning a wedding. Congratulations! You have so many wonderful and exciting times ahead! I hope that I can help you on your journey towards the altar. Not a Bride? Not a problem, maybe you are the Maid of Honour or the Mother of the Bride or maybe you just really like weddings and pretty DIYs? If so, please read on!


But, who am I to give you advice on such things? I’m Michelle van den Houten, I love planning weddings, talking about weddings, being in weddings, anything related to weddings really. I have said, more times than I can count “it costs that much for this?! I could make that myself!”. Guaranteed, I am not the first, nor will I be the last person to think that. You’ve probably heard the phrase “Wedding Tax” – well no more! I am going to try help you find trendy, fun and easy to do hacks to save on all those bits and bobs required to make sure your big day is truly unforgettable.

Weddings are magical and every single bride (and groom) out there deserves to have their dream day – without breaking the bank. We have all been there, looking at something beautiful and bridal related, wondering if it is justifiable to spend £100 on something you will use for only a few hours. Put simply, it is not but that does not mean you still can’t have it, and I am here to help you!

If all this sounds like your cup of tea, I hope that you will stick around and join me. We can share the ride, I’ll help you plan your dream wedding if you’ll help me give this thing a go!
