All sounds fab! Love the copper pipe flower stands.

I'm making a floral hoop to act as a back drop for our vows too, so pretty yet easy to do!

Flowers I like...

Just thought I'd make a list of all the flowers I've seen that I like! Some are obviously expensive so I don't want them (budget is everything) but they're the kind of look I like and alternatives can be found I'm sure!

Sunflowers 

Gypsophilia 

Craspedia

Peonies 

Marigolds 

Lupin 

Hydrangeas 

Ranunculus

Viburnum

Veronica

Chrysanthemum 

Wisteria 

Gerberas 

And then some of the foliage I like includes 

Eucalyptus 

Bay 

Ivy 

Fern fronds

Cutlery hire..

Still umming and ahhing. I know it's a needless expense when we're trying so hard to cut corners in other areas of the budget but I just love gold cutlery and I have this really irrational hatred of the colour silver. I've had a quote from crosby hire so we'll see if we can save money elsewhere and then decide.

42x main forks - £11.20

42x main knives - £11.20

42x dessert forks - £11.20

42x dessert spoons - £11.20

168 x washing up charge - £11.76

20% VAT - £11.31

TOTAL - £67.87

I made some shrinky dink place names! They're perfectly imperfect and I love that about them.

Bridezilla

Your inspiration ideas from the fayre are all lovely, I really like the hoops they shouldn't be too hard to recreate, love your place names too.

I made one of our wedding signs! It's going to be mounted on an easel with foliage around  it :)

I'm going to make a matching one with the order of the day on it, and some small ones to go in copper frames for like the guest book and confetti and stuff.

If anyone wants any of these by the way they're super quick and fun to make I'd be happy to do em for anyone willing to pick them up from my house in Leeds for like £5 to cover supplies .

Bridezilla

£10 to make this! I'm pretty proud of this to be honest :)

Bridezilla

That hoop is fabulous! As is your sign. You’re so talented! 

Bridezilla

Looks fab!

Thanks guys! I just can't believe how cheap and easy it was to make, it'd be like 10x that cost at least, to have it made professionally and it looks great!

Honeymoon...

So matty is taking the lead on this because he LOVES travel and the research and booking with holidays but at the minute we're thinking of either :

Peru 

Sri Lanka 

Mexico 

We want a boutiquey little hotel, no high rise block hotels. On the beach. Lots of restaurants and bars around. All inclusive for a week. We want the option to go on excursions or do activities a couple days but mostly we just want to laze around!

We've set a budget of 2.5k for it.

Bridezilla

I’ve been to Mexico - youll find plenty of lush hotels there, only thing I’ll mention is I remember you saying your planning to maybe have another baby after the wedding? If you go to Mexico, you’ll have to put off trying for at least 6 months after you return because of the Zika virus - obviously if you’re not planning #2 straight away then you’ll be fine but just thought I’d mention it :) 

ive heard amazing things about sri lanka (no Zika) and the pictures I’ve seen are amazing x

Ooh I didn't think of that! Should be OK though I can wait 6 months probably and still fit the time line!

Decor ...

So I bought some things!

This is our wedding breakfast room 

You can see the type of chairs we'll have and they're the same that we'll have for our ceremony so the florist is providing foliage for the back row of the ceremony, and I've bought some ribbon to tie into simple bows on the backs. I may find something cute to hang from the bow between now and the wedding but I'm not going to actively look.

If you can see towards the back of the room there's a balcony (stairs go down to the kitchen) so I've got these little rose gold balloons (they're only 16" tall) to fill with helium and tie along the balcony spelling out JUST MARRIED :) we've also got 5 rectangular guest tables with like long displays so I've also bought balloons that say M & H to go along each of them!

Bridezilla

Accessories...

So I've messaged this woman from etsy who's going to be making my floral crown and she says that more is more when it comes to detail so I've drawn a picture of what I've got in my head, here it is!

Did you get the balloons from eBay? I'm following some on there but wondered if you found a good deal elsewhere?

Yeah eBay! I've bought them before in gold for my son's first birthday party and they were great!
