- Wedding: May 2014
i am hoping i can pull of the a double style 50’s theme. me and FI are very excited about all this, he loves my ideas and i love his. we’ve been chatting about what we want and he seemed more into the evening event planning than much else and i have a lot of faith in him, so i’ve given him that to deal with, which should keep him good for a while, he also has our honeymoon to plan. so fingers crossed it all works out, he’s happy to do all of this, which is fantastic.
so my part of the wedding is to plan the day time events, the sit down meal and the ceremony, including sorting the Church (i backed down on the church and just let it be, it means a lot to him and nothing to me so he can have that one too) but he will have to help with that a little too, all the legal stuff we will do together the pretty stuff is mine 🙂
so here’s my day time inspiration:
see the cup and saucer second from the right on the bottom row i have one of these, it was my late grandmothers, which i will be using possibly at my mothers place setting 🙂
i think it is very fitting to be using a lot of pottery/ceramics in my wedding. but I will need to ensure it was made in Stoke on trent. my mother is one for checking the bottoms of cups to see where it was made, I made her a cup of tea in a cup made in china, she threw it in the bin haha never mind. i’m also not that worried about finding everything i need, i’ve just done a quick local search and there are 69 pottery firms listed in my area, ha good to be from the potteries. I’ll probably buy factory seconds and what not, i bought my mum a dinner service once each item was £0.25 so i can do this. with the three tier stands i want to use these as centerpieces, maybe flowers in the tea cups and cupcakes on the lower two.
and I put this board together with my FI but here is his vision for the evening:
I love it…. i think if he can pull it off it will be amazing, these are only ideas and we will have to source locally similar products as most of the items are from a US website. but i think his ideas are fab!
i will be wearing a tea length gown as will my BM and Fi and his Grooms men will be wearing slim fit grey suits with a black piping on the collor, (apparently anyway)
now we have agreed on practically everything up to yet he loves my ideas, I love his. the only thing we cannot agree on is transport i want a pink cadillac and he wants ‘grease lightning’
we’ll sort that one later, i’m losing though as my son prefers FI choice.
hope you all like it …
