It’s The Little Things That Count

I’ve not been feeling too well recently, which means wedding planning has slightly been put on the back burner. It’s only two months to go now, but due to our fairly laid back approach and all my mum’s help there’s not actually that much left to do. (Although having said that, Paul doesn’t yet have anything to wear on the day and we haven’t sorted our rings. But that’s what July and August are for).

We’re at the point where everything major (venue, food, dress, car, etc.) is sorted, and we are now turning our thoughts to the little touches. Which is why I was very excited when my Mum emailed me to show me these gorgeous tea light holders from Cox and Cox (newly engaged brides-to-be, Cox and Cox is fab – definitely worth a look). We will be placing scented tea lights in fifty holders and using them to decorate the museum conservatory where the ceremony will take place. One of my mum’s friends loved them so much she asked if she could hire them for her daughter’s wedding next year!

I have a few creative projects in the pipeline – I am going to make our orders of service (or whatever the non-religious equivalent is!) and little place cards so people know where to sit at the ceremony. I’m also planning to customise some lingerie as I’ve not yet found any bridal lingerie that I love. I have bought little white silk roses with green leaves from Hobbycraft, and will be sewing these on to some white lingerie (once I find a pretty set).

It’s nice to be able to play around with the small details – the little touches that the day would be fine without but that just make it more personal. I will keep you up to date with our progress…hopefully Paul won’t end up getting married in his birthday suit.

  • Oh how pretty! I love them 🙂

  • Love these! I know what I’ll be doing on my lunch break!

    Completely agree about the little things making it personal. We ended up making quite a lot of little things and they are the things guests remember and loved the most. For example, my Fimo cake topper and personally decorated cake-if you watch my wedding film on my site you will realise how I’m not one to keep it simple! 😉

    Good luck with finding a suit! My Husband knows a great tailor in Chester!

    Love those little vases – and not only are the little things the ones that count, they’re the most fun as far as planning goes I think! Enjoy these last few weeks. And I’m sure Paul has something – or will secretly enjoy a shopping trip to find something cool enough to go with your dress… I really can’t wait to see your pictures you know.
