  • Ooh can't wait to hear more! My other half is just the same with tealights, they are usually lit EVERYWHERE when I get home...and incense image

    It all sounds lovely so far xx

    Really nice story, I like the ones without big dramatic twists and turns, more like me and my h2b! (of course, I like the dramatic ones too!) looking forward to hearing more image

    MrsDavis - I am obsessed! I do love a scented candle, so now I'm deciding between fragrances for the day!

    MrsF - me too, I actually wrote this up and thought, "God, we're boring!" I'll try again with the photos, my computer doesn't like YAYW today image

    Take two of the venue photo!

    The Dress

     

  • The Men

    They will be in morning suits - Mr A is quite a traditionalist! Currently he wants a navy one with the ushers/fathers in grey, although I am sure that will change image

     

    I'm currently having a veil dilemma. I absolutely did not want one until I tried one on with the dress and now I'm in love! I can't find a lace-edged one for a decent price though image 

     

  • I absolutely love your dress, its stunning!

  • Our ceremony room is quite plain and not overly exciting, so I am overcompensating on candles! I got lots of glass tea light holders for 49p each, which I am going to fill with Yankee Candle samplers - we are yet to decide on a candle scent!

    I am going to line the aisle with rose petals, like this:

     

     

     

  • Thanks, Elaine! When I tried it on I got a bit teary and bought it there and then image

  • So, I have fallen in love with these but have no idea what to use them for!

    OOh, where are those made with love charms from, Ilove them too! lol

    That dress is gorgeous, your plans sound lovely so far, I love the idea of a wedding day scent and all those candles burning.

  • They're from Confetti! I'm thinking they will look nice attached to the order of service image

  • MrsA-2013 wrote (see)

    So, I have fallen in love with these but have no idea what to use them for!

     

    Ooh I'm using these but got them very cheap off ebay! I got 100 for less than £5. 

    My favours are handmade stockings so these look really cute sewn on. 

  • Ah, ebay, my favourite thing at the moment!

  • ...

     

  • ...

  • This is the sort of thing I've decided on for the ceremony room:

     I'm a bit paranoid about the vases being on the floor though! We have three large windows in our ceremony room plus a mantelpiece, so I'll dot them around there. I don't like the wall colour (or indeed the carpet) of the ceremony room so I'll use this to take away focus.

  • Centrepieces

    Will be something like this:


     

    I wasn't lying about the number of candles! Our DJ is putting uplighters in for the evening reception to match our colour scheme - with the burgundy lighting and candlelight I think it will look very pretty image

     


  • ...

  • So, onto flowers! I want mine quite simple really, something like:

     

    As the bridesmaids are wearing red I'll give them white/ivory roses.

     And a few of these dotted around:

     

  • Love your planning so far Mrs A and we have the same ideas for bridal and bridesmaids bouquets image



    So nice to see some more red instead of vintage pastels image
  • Thanks Suzi image I've always avoided pastels - I am a very pale person so wishy-washy colours just don't suit me! I had a quick peek at your planning thread and now I have venue envy!

  • ...

  • Having forcibly sat Mr A in front of a computer to look at centrepieces, he suggested buying a couple of these to trial:

     They're not too big - I hate too much clutter on tables - and would fit 2-3 floating candles in. So, we've got our centrepiece bowls for the bargain price of £40! image

    I have also bought 5 of these for the ceremony room decorations:

     

     

  • Advice please!

    I have issues with the ceremony room being a bit bland, so as well as the candles I want a few flowers dotted around.

    I'm looking for some silver crackle effect vases - anyone have any ideas where I can get them from? I'm stuck!

     

    All suggestions/recommendations appreciated

  • ...

  • Our reception room has a buffet station, which can't be moved. They normally put a cloth over it with some petals for the wedding breakfast and then it hold the evening buffet later on:

    I think I'm going to put the sweet buffet on this instead though. Might as well make use of it!
