I like the idea of our ushers wearing some cool socks at the wedding.

The argyle sock looks quite sophisticated…







Or stripes in different colours…



Or to match the brides shoes…



I like the idea of a floral pattern so I headed over to Paul Smith in Covent Garden – he has a great slecetion of socks. Here’s some that might do the job.

This idea isn’t a recent one. Look at this photo from an 80s wedding I found. Flash those sports socks!

Heard an interview on the radio with Ellie Greenwich who died last month. She co-wrote this song and lots of famous songs from the 60s among them Be My Baby, Da Doo Ron Ron, Leader of the Pack, River Deep, Mountain High.

Listening to this makes me wedding giddy hehe!

I’ve been looking for back-up emergency flats for the wedding just in case my boots become uncomfortable later in the night. I’d been looking for bridal or ivory shoes to go with the dress but didn’t see any I liked. Then it came to me: why don’t I wear some coloured shoes? Then I realised I could get dark blue velvet shoes that will tie in with my coat, my bouquet, the church pew ribbons and everywhere else we’ve used velvet.

Miu miu has a beautiful pair of blue velvet flats with a lovely bow at the front. Droooooool!

Thought those interested in having a candy table might like to have a look at everything I’ve bought for ours so far. There are links so those in the UK know where to buy items from.


Finally bought the jars for our candy table! These were the nicest ones I found and even better postage was free!

Buy them at Lytton and Lily

We’re also hiring some glass vases from our florist (A great place to look as hire was only £2.50 each vase) and displaying pies and sweets on cake stands and plates.


Five scoops from here


A couple of special heart scoops from here


Striped paper sweet bags from here

Now to buy the sweets!

Sleeping in Montreal airport while we waited for the next flight. When I saw the advert above the bench he was sleeping on I had to take the picture!
