5. What did you wear? (we want all the details)
I wore a white dress with huge bow actually purchased from AliExpress! I did have to have it altered for so much so probably could have just had it made lol I mainly sourced the outfits from vinted , different places like white fox , shein hand made some  and added some designer pieces like jimmy choos and beautiful feather bag from yourselves which hugely upgraded the look! All my outfits were affordable after searching so many designers for high end I just couldn’t find anything I loved so much so picked pieces and merged together! My main inspiration was queen of jetlags. 
6. How involved were you in the organisation? (Type A Bride or did you let your MOH take charge?)
 My maid of honour was amazing she got my vibe at the start with mood boards and I helped her as and when. 
7. What was your most expensive purchase? Was it worth it?  
The Jimmy choos were the most expensive purchase but worth it.

11. What are your 3 top tips to other brides planning their Bach?
β€’ Plan your outfits way ahead to avoid stress, use image search if you love a designer dress but can’t afford image search on google to see if there’s anything similar that comes up that’s more affordable. 

β€’ Give your MOH a mood board of inspiration you want your Bach to look and feel like! This helps people know what you want. 

β€’ Try not to get down if others aren’t as excited as you about you Want. Enjoy yourself this is the last celebration of your single life. 

12. What are 3 things from G&O on your Wishlist? 
I ordered so much as I loved everything, the feather bag is my ultimate favourite thing and I will use this for years to come and remember happy times in Paris! I loved my marriage material fan! I love your matches! Pink tassle decorations and the Barbie themed hen items are definitely on my wish list for my MOH who is obsessed with Barbie and would love that! Marriage Material Jumper was also sooo comfy wonderful !!
