I decided to tag along with the Future Missus partly because marriage is a team sport, and partly out of a sense of morbid curiosity.

I decided to make the most of my time in the Heart of Brideness and tweets my observations from the event. It made the time pass considerably more quickly, and I hope you find them amusing!
