Hello beautiful brides to be, firstly congratulations on choosing a destination wedding.
I cannot wait to share some amazing tips with you. I’m Osaze the creative writer behind zharzi.com a creative DIY and lifestyle blog that started off in June 2018 as a creative outlet to share my destination wedding planning tips and DIY hacks. I’m a former fashion and textiles teacher, and now a creative writer working in the corporate sector.
My destination-wedding journey began in February 2017 when my husband Charles proposed with a live guitar playing Bruno mars at a Spanish restaurant in Tenerife. Fast-forward to August 2018 and almost 18months of planning alongside our wedding planners. We tied the knot overlooking the Aegean Sea in Santorini.
As it turns out, I love to talk, especially about destination weddings and love being able to re-live our wedding day with friends and family through our wedding videos, photo albums and social media. I loved adding personal touches to make our destination wedding truly magical from the glistening lace on my veil, to our mirrored lighting upon entering our reception venue, personalized wedding favours and welcome table. Our vision *coughs* my vision for our wedding came perfectly together.
Planning a destination wedding can seem daunting especially if you have never visited your chosen location. Trust me I’ve been there and I can honestly say to you I truly loved the planning process, if you plan to marry abroad within 2months or even 24months trust me it will fly by. I thoroughly enjoyed planning our wedding and sharing wedding tips and ideas post wedding. I look forward to sharing some strategies; hints and tips that helped me navigate through the planning process.
See you next month for a round up of my destination wedding in Santorini.
