Fortunately/unfortuntely, we’re reaching the point of wedding planning where most things have been done, but what’s remaining isn’t fun, colourful or exciting! The dresses have been bought, the cake is arranged, I’ve met with the florists, we’ve organised the food, most of the drink and 99% of the decorations. It’s getting down to the nitty gritty; working out whether we’ll need a generator for the band, where the caterers can organise themselves, how much space the DJ’s kit will take up… So, instead of boring you with stress and details I’ve decided to share something a little less taxing!
We weren’t originally going to have favours, David and I weren’t too bothered about giving everyone chocolates in a box or a bag of sugared almonds to thank them for celebrating with us, and we felt it had lost its meaning a little. I started googling “DIY favours” and “original favours” before coming back round to one of my favourite sites, Martha Stewart Weddings. I saw her seed favour ideas, and had seen them in some other places and quite liked the idea; you plant the seeds after the day to remember the couple’s wedding in the future, what a lovely sentiment!
