Elite Island Bridal Blogathon: What the What?

I want to tell you all about a super exciting project I’m so lucky to be involved in… Back in December 2014 I was feeling a little sorry for myself as it’d been a while since I’d had a holiday [over 3 whole years], I kept mentioning to Chris how wonderful it would be for us to get away, but unfortunately our finances just couldn’t stretch to it…

So it’s not highly surprising that by January I had a slight case of the post Christmas blues… all those sun and sand filled images of celebs on their exotic annual January hols were really starting to depress me… What happened next was a real bolt out of the blue! Sat on our sofa one evening still moaning about our lack of hols, my twitter account beeped. Halfheartedly, I looked to see who had tweeted and I could see a message from a PR company asking me to follow them, I sometimes get these requests and tend to ignore them, so it was a stroke of pure fate that I suddenly decided to follow!!

Immediately after the follow I received a direct message asking if I had received an email invite to join a bridal blogathon in the Caribbean… What the what! Email invite. Caribbean!?! Bridal blogathon??? Nooooo… 

Frantically trawling through my spam email I finally found the near-missed invite and excitedly tweeted back to the PR company explaining what had happened and of course I would love to be involved. Talk about nearly missing out!!

So what exactly is a bridal blogathon?

Well… it’s the sequel to the very successful January 2013 Barbados Blogathon & January 2014 Elite Island Hopathon.

The Elite Island Bridal Blogathon will be:

A month long fun social media and blogger island hop project, showcasing weddings and honeymoon options at Elite Island Resorts on Barbados, Antigua and St Lucia, with Kuoni who are renowned and respected for their weddings and honeymoon services.

The 4 “Elite Island Bridal Bloggers” chosen all have our own Caribbean travel schedule and will overlap with each other to pass on the bridal beach blogathon bouquet [bbbb ;0)], swapping Caribbean stories over delicious cocktails and tweeting our experiences as we go along!
