It feels like I haven't posted anything wedding planning related in ages. Don't worry folks, the wedding is still on, but we got so much of the big planning bits out the way early on (being a mega-stresshead clearly helps you become an organised bride,) that it's now really only the details that we are working on. And we want there to be lots of surprises for our guests.
But one of the most exciting things I did want to share is that we now have a pre & post wedding base. The night before the wedding I wanted to have all my 'maids around me, and to make things easier on The Boy and I we decided having a place close to the venue we could get back to with ease would be the best route to take.
I reached out on Twitter for help. And Epic Apart Hotel returned the call.
Based right in the heart of the city and literally I hop, skip and a jump away from our wedding venue, Epic solved both our issues. After a few messages back and forth from me to Georgina - one of the Epic team - Boyfriend and I booked in for both the nigh before and the night of the wedding.
So naturally, I just had to go down and check it out in the flesh didn't I?
Now, I do realise that we haven't actually stayed there yet, but Georgina was so unbelievably lovely and actually took us on a tour around one of the smaller apartments so we could get a general idea of what staying in Epic would be like. The apartment we have booked sleeps 8 people, so will be much bigger, but it was great to get a sense of what our "pad" for the wedding weekend will look like. Having somewhere light, bright, comfy and cosy to stay in that weekend is really important....everything had to be perfect!
I was blown away by everything in that apartment. If you would have asked me, I think I would have moved in right then and there and never left. It was stunning.
The décor throughout the apartment was clean and bright, with little bursts of colour throughout the main living spaces. The wall-mounted TV is actually a Smart TV, so the night before, the girls and I will be able to link up our favourite music playlists and bop around the living room, popping the cork on a bottle of fizz in a sense of pre-wedding glee. There is a cooker, microwave, and cupboards fully stocked with enough glassware and crockery, so if we want to, we have the option to cook our own food, or have a bit of breakfast in the morning.
I just could not get over how much light came through and filled the apartment. It will just be perfect for the morning of the wedding because hair and make up are coming to us. There won't be any worrying about finding enough spots for everyone to sit and be pampered, and there is so much floor space we won't be falling over each other getting ready....and this is what it was like in one of the smaller apartments. I can't even imagine what staying in our actual apartment is going to be like. (I'm not going to lie, it is neck-and-neck between the excitement I have for the wedding and staying at Epic.)
And don't even get me started on the bathroom! So chic. Just so chic. Beautiful tiles and gorgeous potted plants that contrast with the rich and opulent colouring of the walls. And even little things, like The White Company amenities that sit prettily on the counter-top, just waiting to pamper you....Cab we say #BathroomGoals ?!
I really cannot wait to stay at Epic Apart Hotel, and I'm so glad we found them. It's location on Seel Street could not be more perfect for us, and is a great location for anyone needing a place to stay after a city centre wedding. Epic also have other sites on Campbell Street and Duke Street too.
If you are in need of a place to stay in Liverpool City Centre, then definitely go and check out the Epic Apart Hotel website. It's an absolute hidden gem. So modest-looking from the outside, but once you step through the door, it packs one hell of a punch, and personally I cannot wait to stay there!
