Mummy May is getting married 7th Feb 2014 :)


Okay so here goes eeeepppp

So I'm Lucy, engaged to Jason. I'm 23 and he is 24. Got engaged on Christmas day, biggest shock of my life!!

We have a little girl who is 2 and a baby due in Feb 2013 and we live in a lovely house in the countryside

So we spoke to the vicar and have set our date for Friday 7th February 2014 in our village church, followed by our reception at 'Irton Hall' a place about 15 miles down the road, it is stunning and we will be their first wedding so getting a very good deal!

We don't have a 'theme' as such, just things that we like and I think were going for a pale green/pale pink colour scheme though this could change!
I'm thinking lots of bunting and have Mother bear on the case with her sewing machine!!

Were having quite a small ceremony (later in the day) with only very close friends and family there in the church with us (though the numbers soon add up!!), everyone else will be invited at night.

Were having a buffet style meal and each guest will have a bar token (handmade by me) instead of champagne for toasts because none of us actually like the stuff. Our evening guests will be having sandwiches and cakes as most people will have had the big meal and we don't want to feed everyone twice (keeping costs down!).

I will post links to things as I go along as I know how much you girls like photos

Can't believe I'm actually here!!

xx

Just updating! So far we have sorted -
*Church
*Venue
*Suits
*Photographer
*Cakes
*Favours
*Colour scheme
*Decorations
*Invites/Place Cards
*Wedding car
*Disco

http://www.bigtreestationery.co.uk/w...-bunting.shtml These are the invites I'm thinking about going for (Lauren, I think we have quite similar styles!) as long as the lady comes back with a decent price lol! I would just be buying the day invites printed and a couple of the bunting multipacks for evening invites. There are some lovely ones on not on the high street but they are quite expensive and we don't want to spend loads on invites that will essentially be binned! xx

Yeah I've decided against those invites, She e-mailed me last night and wants 78 for 30 invites plus 12 postage and I'm not prepared to pay that. I want to try making my own but think I will mess it up but there are some pretty ones on light in the box if all else fails!! xx
