Although I haven’t come up with a colour scheme yet, it does seem like I am leaning towards a very white wedding. I couldn’t resist adding the ‘Wedding This Way sign‘ (£5.95) to this inspiration board and hopefully will be able to rustle up something similar once preparations truly get underway. The bird cage lantern is a snip at just £3.32 at the moment and I actually saw something similar at work the other week which was much more expensive. I was going to pick one up but we sold out of them so quickly – they were that popular!! I want something similar to this for our table at the reception – would it be silly to buy it now? I can’t guarantee it will stay at that price forever!
The plan is to have some lightly scented tea lights on each table so the Cherub Hanging Tea Light Holder (£8.95) would be perfect, although I will definitely be looking for something a little more cost effective come the time. Of course, what is a wedding without wedding favours? Again, I will probably use tea light holders as they just look so pretty! You can get 5 for £7.99 here which isn’t a bad price but I’ll keep looking around for a better deal.
The last thing I added to this little mood board was the hanging decoration from Party Pieces which is only £2.99. I’m definitely going to be letting the DIY side of me out a little more often to see if I can recreate something similar.
Is it normal to fall in love with the first venue you look into?
I’d love to hear your thoughts!
Setting the date.
I still feel very unprepared when it comes to this wedding which I suppose is only normal, I’ve hardly started planning just yet! That being said, hopefully our photographer and wedding cake are already sorted – I spoke to my friend as soon as I got engaged about being our photographer – you can check out her portfolio here. Although I haven’t seen her in a while, she was one of my closest friends in secondary school and is a fantastic photographer – someone who I know will do the job amazingly. We also know that Steve’s cousin has offered her services as our cake maker – and I know just how good her cakes can be!
Are you or have you ever planned a wedding? What parts did you find most stressful?
