Oh you’re going to love this bridal blogger from the UK.  We ran across her really cool site and just had to get to know her better.  Enjoy our little tête à tête with Kat Williams of Rock ‘n Roll Bride!

Whoa gurl – we have been immersed in your blog since we found it – great ideas!  Whatever got you started?

I started Rock n Roll Bride in 2007 when I was planning my own wedding for April 2008. I used it as an online diary really and a place to gather my wedding-related thoughts and ideas.  I loved reading and the US wedding blogs throughout my planning and so when our wedding was over I decided to keep blogging and turned Rock n Roll Bride into a place to share fabulous, unique, alternative and rock n roll weddings and photography. I now run Rock n Roll Bride full time. It really is my dream job as I get to be myself!

Well, we sure love the fresh ideas – so inspirational for brides planning their weddings and for ladies looking for something a little different.  You have readers worldwide, don’t you?  Any thoughts about how brides are different from one country to the next?

Well what’s so great about the brides and grooms that I feature is that generally they want to buck traditions and do things their own way. I think it’s fantastic to see people being themselves on their wedding days and not conforming to what’s expected or tradition. However in saying this I love Indian weddings for the outlandish colour, gold and joy

  

Totally agreed.  Indian weddings are absolutely splendid in the color and the tradition!  Hey – pretend we’re sitting down for a chat with a newly betrothed (don’t you just love that word?) bride2be.  What good advice would you share?

  • Get a good photographer – in fact the best you can afford. After the wedding is over, these will be your memories and you’ll regret it if your photographs aren’t up to scratch.
  • Go with your heart and be true to yourself.
  • However much you think you stress about a certain type of flower or shade of napkin in the run up, you really won’t care on the day.
  • Don’t spend money on stupid things you ‘think’ you should have.

Sounds like pretty solid advice, Kat.  Thanks for taking time from your busy-ness!  We’ll keep looking forward to your next fabulous post!

Happy Planning!

 

And speaking of weddings with that lovely Indian flair!
