I'm getting married in NYC

Ok Ok I know... I'm terrible!
I've almost definitely nearly made up my (our) mind(s) this time!
It's NYC all the way!
Providing we aren't poverty stricken in the meantime we should be able to book just after xmas to go early february. We'll be there for my birthday (4th) but be home before valentines so we could have a little party at home on valentines to celebrate with our close friends and family. I can't stress how much I don't want a big party!
Here's all the info I've found and the random videos I've been watching.

The problem now lies with what to wear! I found the cute short dress that would accomodate a potential baby bump some time ago and it's been hanging in my wardrobe waiting ever since...

New York in February is pretty darn cold! So what do you wear to get married alone (no guests) at city hall when it's freezing outside? Jeans and a sweatshirt? lol
No joke I was seriously going down the white jeans route for some time so I'm not ruling it out now.

Here are some options I'm looking at...

any suggestions of your own for me?

Celebrity Wedding Inspiration

On a brighter note.. I've been revisting Celebrity hair/makeup/style inspiration today and I thought I'd share with you my favourites...

Sadness aside that these too divorced..and I am still unreasonably sad... I LOVE this one photo they released to the press of their wedding day, she looks so beautiful and her hair is so effortless but glam.. Jealous isn't the word.

This couple have so far had a happier ending...
love the pose, love the dress, she was pregnant (visibly) when they got married but she still looked classically beautiful.. I even love the hair!

Gwen Stefani's wedding dress was a work of art in itself, that along with her hair platinum hair and scarlett lips she stayed true to her personal style while retaining bridal elegance.

This is one of the very few shots of JLos wedding to Marc Anthony.. Love her hair, love the lace... love the flowers, the parasol.......It's just all so romantic isn't it?

Do you have a favourite celeb wedding style?


 I am so conflicted!
You may already know this about me.. I'm very indecisive!
So, to begin with we were going to vegas for sure... that was definitely what we wanted to do.
Then we decided we weren't gonna be divorced in time so we looked for alternatives..
We looked at our local register office (eugh), local cities that may have nicer town halls we could marry in... eg, York/Leeds/Sheffield. At my parents request we looked into Gretna Green (so expensive... thought eloping was sposed to be cheap) and then most recently we settled on London.
We thought if we couldn't go where we wanted maybe Christmas in London would be special?
mmm... Now I don't know. We still don't know that we'll be divorced by then so until we have that locked down we can't really make any solid plans anyway so that sucks.. But we keep going back to Vegas.
Part of the reason we were in kind of a rush was because we thought I'd be pregnant by now.. I wanted to be married before we had a baby (preferably before I was pregnant but at least within the first 3 months).
Now we've had our fertility issues (see baby making blog - we really don't need to rush. There's always the chance I could conceive but I think we're 6 months off that so we have time to go Vegas after all... but now I'm thinking, can we really leave our families out of it? It was the initial plan but now I'm not sure... I'd love to go just the two of us and come back married... it would be romantic and exactly what I think I want but I don't want to look back in 10 years time and wish we'd had a big celebration. We can have a little party of course I just don't want to do anything I'll regret. I was so sure of how I wanted things that now I've had time to take a step back I'm really confused.
If we could go to Vegas tomorrow and get hitched that would be bliss... part of my issue is the timing.. I hate to wait for ANYTHING and I only have a few times in the next 6 month this trip would be possible.. maybe 2 or 3 dates we could go away for maybe 4 nights. If we put it off more than 6 months (which would be easier) I've a lot more chance of being pregnant... which is a good thing but scuppers my plans.
ARRGGHH!!! I'm a secret worrier and try to seem on the outside like I have everything figured out but in truth I have no idea.. so I'm sharing my nerves with you and asking for your help..
If you could get married anywhere where would it be? Home or away I'd love your suggestions.. I don't want a hotel or a beach wedding but am not opposed to outdoors... I don't want a big family affair but could handle maybe 6-8 guests if I must..
The best time we could do this would be February - my birthday is the 4th and Valentines in of course the 14th so they are potential romantic dates..
If anyone knows anywhere lovely in the UK then fab but I also would love to do it somewhere in America.. don't care where or what the weathers like...
