Rebecca will be marrying David on 7th October 2018 at a secret location in Israel! Click here to read all Rebecca’s planning posts to date.
THREE FACTS: (1) Rebecca and David met on JSwipe (so old school we know 😉 ) (2) They are having a destination wedding in Israel at a secret location! (3) They are getting married on Rebecca’s grandparents wedding anniversary (who have been married for 64 years). We LOVE that!
Well, we made it! Two weeks to go! And what a journey this has been.
I must say whilst it has been crazy.. David and I have learnt a lot about ourselves and have worked together well to get everything ready in time for the big day. The flat is FINISHED, it was a race against time but everything has arrived and I am almost fully moved in now, ready to leave West Hampstead when we come back from Israel. It’s been hard work doing lots of the work ourselves but we did it!
David had his Stag Do in Kent which he enjoyed (I’m happy to say he came back in one piece!). Lots of the boys came from all over including the US and Israel so he was really touched they made the journey.

We ordered our Ketubah from Ketubata.com and it’s being delivered (hopefully) in time! (As usual we left it until the last minute!). Natasha has been great liaising back and forth to ensure the wording is right and I can’t wait to see the final version.

The Bridal Party
All the bridesmaid dresses have arrived, we bought the girls dresses from Davids Charles while my sister is having hers made by a dressmaker called Suzanne Harrington. All the ushers suits have also arrived (we chose a suit from Moss Bros). The matching ties and pocket squares have proven to be quite tricky! It’s taken us 4 goes but we have finally found ones that match! We ended up buying them on Ties R Us and they had a huge amount of choice and were perfect.
My final dress fitting is next week, the dress looks better then I ever could have imagine and I am so excited to wear it!

The Smaller Details
Other than that it has pretty much been all hands on deck recently to finalise the smaller details: the table plan, running order, music with the band, printed items, kippahs, cocktail choices – the list goes on! But hopefully when we arrive the week before the wedding we will be able to enjoy the sun with all the jobs done!
So this is my last post as a Miss! Thank you Karen for choosing me to be a blogging bride, I have loved writing about my big day and for all your help inside VIB Club with some great tips for our day! I would definitely recommend VIB Club to anyone if they are thinking about joining – it’s like having a wedding planner!
