I've Been Wedding Planning Again...

It seems as though everywhere I look, everyone is getting married. Maybe it's one of them things that always happens but you don't notice until everyone you know is doing it or it's happening to you.
I've noticed recently, a fair amount of girls I went to school with have all been getting married within the last month or two so it's at the top of my interests currently.

I got engaged nearly 7 years ago, crazy I know. 
Since then, we've gone on to have 3 daughters and the funds for a wedding seem to never emerge but I am hoping to change that! Since Rose is now 2, there aren't any small babies around any more, we can save for our future wedding.

I feel that wedding planning is really fun when you're starting out. The whole world is your oyster. Nothing is set in stone and I can decide all the quirky things I may like without them being considered a nonviable option just yet.

All this said, I've been looking around and writing down all my little ideas I've found that I am currently liking. I've been on the website Confetti (visit website) which I have found amazing! They have different categories for basically everything you need to know for a wedding.
They have masses of suppliers for everything you can think of (bridal dresses, wedding cakes, photographers, health, hair and beauty, catering, music and DJs, nannies, entertainment, insurance and even speech writers!)

They also seem to have an amazing Wedding Advice section which is perfect for starting to wedding plan as it includes things like children's activity packs, how to include your pet in your wedding and the top 30 best rock wedding songs. These were really interesting to read though and made me think about things I hadn't yet realised I would need to think about.

While searching their website, these are a few ideas I have found and like.

The Semi Naked Wedding Cake 

The semi naked wedding cake is something that I never thought I would like but the more I see them, the more they are growing on me.
I love the simplicity of them, the rustic feel and they are just really cute!
I think this is one thing that I may change my mind on many many times in the planning of the wedding but I do keep coming back to it.

Family Cake Toppers

I can't say I've ever seen this concept before until spotting it on one of the advice posts on Confetti. It's one that caught my eye but I'm not fully sure how I feel about it.
Our children are a big part of our family, as you can understand. To include them on the cake would be an amazing idea and I am really interested to look into this a bit more.

Child Activity Packs 

I have a large family, which also means there are a fair amount children in my family that would be coming to our wedding. All our friends seem to have children too so keeping the kids entertained during the boring speeches and dull change over, children's activity packs seem like the answer to all prayers.

There are many other ideas on the website which I would love to write down on this post (mainly for my memory purposes) which I will keep on revisiting.

Were there any quirky ideas that you had at your wedding?
