Wedding Planning Timeline (text)

Wedding planning checklists seem to exist on every possible wedding website already. So, I figured, why not on mine as well? 😉

Firstly, it will actually help me to organize my own wedding. I felt the need of a more personalized wedding planning timeline than those I had seen on other sites or blogs. I thought it would be particularly important to include the “day-after” to-do list as this is something that is usually left out in the existing wedding planning checklists. Secondly, it will, hopefully, help those of you reading my blog, to get a different perspective on such a wedding planning essential as a timeline. Thirdly, I created this timeline as a text, with links to some of my previous posts, and as an image, so that you can easily save it on one of your Pinterest boards. So here you go, meticulously thought-through and delivered to your doorstep by Milknhoney-Me 😉Read More »

6 ways to make him participate in the wedding planning

He can be the best man in the world. Prince charming, no less (with or without his horse), always happy to dine at your parents’ (wave and smile), always ready to save your life when a giant spider has turned your bed into a cocoon and is just waiting for an oblivious victim (you) to walk nonchalantly in just to parish timelessly in those hairy legs (seriously, I could write horror stories). The man of your dreams is also always there to open cans, jars and bottles for you (those that he himself closed with such a deadly grip like he was actually trying to prevent the Nazis from getting their hands on that apricot jam). He also accompanies you during shopping (“…please God, kill me now…”) and even feeds your cat (“…not to forget to take it to my next duck hunt… & shoot. By mistake, obviously”).

So this is all true and your man is a dream came true. But when you try to engage him into wedding planning, the white knight vanishes into the ether. And even if he continues sitting there, with a vacant stare in his eyes, trust me, he is gone.Read More »

Why I decided to blog

19 March 2014 – by Elena

I created Milknhoney Wedding to share my wedding planning experience and the knowledge of the two European destinations with the many English- and Russian speaking couples who want to get married in Southern France or in Switzerland.

I lived in many different countries including Russia, Italy, the UK, Puerto-Rico and others. This is why I know how important it is to have a person you can trust when it comes to organizing any event – especially such an important one as wedding.Read More »

Why do I give out so much free information?

22 April 2014 – by Elena

I decided to write this post because of the numerous questions from people who ask me why I give out so much free information on my blog.

I know from my personal experience how stressful it can get when organising your own birthday. This is why I find it quite relieving that we have birthdays rather regularly. Didn’t work out the way you wanted it this year – next year will be better. If not, there will always be the year after! Doesn’t really apply to weddings, I believe…Read More »
