I enjoyed planning for the wedding a lot, and between my mum and I, we managed to do a lot of things ourselves to make it wonderfully personal.
We just had a small guest list for our ceremony and reception dinner, so it was not too much of an overwhelming task to do the tables ourselves. I managed to collect lots and lots of glass jugs and vases from the charity shops, the odd one each week did the trick, and mum grew a lot of the flowers in her garden. Unfortunately because of the late start to spring this year, not everything was ready - but mum did a good job of finding some lovely sweet peas and freesias and cornflowers and roses and carnations - and of course lots of gypsophelia- from roadside stalls, the supermarket and the florist. It was nice that the vision was quite a relaxed garden flower type theme as this meant that we could just enjoy picking what we liked and it was such a lovely activity for the day before the wedding to keep my nerves at bay!
And here is a lovely picture our hosts at the pub tweeted - they said that the dining room had never looked prettier.
And Liz and I made our own bouquets which made them extra special for us - and suited our outfits too.
So lovely all these flowers. xx
