     So excited I could literally burst!!!
    When we booked our reception venue we saw lots of pictures of these amazing lights in the glass atrium where we'll have our wedding breakfast.
    We booked it with a different member of staff who said that we'd need to pay extra for them and gave us the details for the company (I was expecting to have to pay extra).
    We contacted them and it cost something like £1600 plus VAT as lovely as they are there is just no way we could justify that so we moved on. The other room is a bit boring so we also wanted some drapes to cover the ceiling same company......£800 plus VAT. We found someone to do the drapes for less so we went with them.
    Then we went to Denbies (the venue) yesterday and saw the lovely wedding coordinator and she told us because it's October the lights and the drapes are included!!!!
    Not only am I completely giddy we get to have them it has brought the saving total for having it in October to somewhere around 6k!!!

    Only 251 days to go....
  • Amazing news about the lights, they are so gorgeous!

    Amazing! I am having my wedding at Denbies too this summer!

    Unfortunately the lights aren't included but we are putting up fairy lights around the room with lots of candles instead... hopefully it would still look nice. 

    I went with Flowers by Elaine for my flowers. We aren't having a lot of flowers but my quote came out to £380.00! It may be worth asking for a quote from them too if you haven't found a florist!

    Oh wow!! When is your wedding there?
    We went to see Dawn this weekend, she us just so lovely! Booked our menu tasting for April, have you had yours yet?

    Awww yes, Dawn is amazing!

    I have my tasting booked for the beginning of March! 

    My wedding is in the beginning of September in Denbies. It was slightly more expensive unfortunately since it's in the peak season, but September is a special month for us so we went ahead with it :)

    The menu looks amazing, I'm struggling to pick which to taste 😁
    We originally wanted September or June but just couldn't justify the extra cost, so we have everything crossed for nice autumnal weather. 


    Today I booked a pianist to play during the wedding breakfast. I've wanted one since we went to a wedding fair but had put it on the shelf to keep in budget. But now we've saved the drapes money I'm having it! 
    As a surprise for Mr Mc I've asked him if he will be able to play the star wars theme for us to enter too, and he said no problem!! I just need to find an arrangement I like and send it over. FH is going to be giddy!!
  • The the lights look so beautiful what a gorgeous venue!

    Today we booked our florist!!
    A bit like the cake we spoke to a few different florists, but I just couldn't decide on one. (FH found it easy to pick one....the cheapest!!)
    We have a large garden centre near us that has a lovely florist in. The flowers are always lovely, and good value for money.
    So Saturday we went to talk about our wedding flowers.
    I didn't want something that everyone else has. My favourite flowers are gerberas, and Roses were firmly on the no list.
    As the girls are wearing navy blue we were looking for hot pink flowers.
    This picture is what sold it for me. We're going to have these on the tables. I was originally going to have bottles I was going to paint gold but these were only £10 more and my Mum kept insisting we needed tall flowers because of the space.

    I'm very excited about my gerbera trees!!! They're going to have some thistles in for MrMc too.

    It's all been a bit quiet here on the wedding front.....busy trying to find a new job!!

    But have just started thinking about the invitations, FH's sister is designing them as she did the Save the Dates. As we're having some Star Wars elements at the reception we've asked her to do flowers in the shape of the Star Wars rebel logo for the front cover. 

    But I'm a bit stuck as to what information to include other than the basic, times places RSVP details. 

    Are you including a RSVP card?
    Should I include directions to the reception venue?
    Should I include hotel details ( this is on the wedding website?
    Song request card, I was considering just printing myself to save some money. 
    I've got cards from Prezola for the gift list.
