Sweets For My Sweet

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.

These cufflinks would be perfect as a groom’s gift on the morning of the wedding. Find them at Paul Smith

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!

Ah its so sweet. Here’s the story of how Sam Chou met his wife, Jaime drawn by Sam himself.

On the night of their wedding, it was projected on a big screen for all of our guests and family.

Our Favors

Our favours are finished! Beautiful bonboniere made by my Italian grandmother which we’re going to hand out at the wedding to each guest during dinner. She did an amazing job.

The Wedding Florist

I’m meeting with a potential wedding florist on Saturday and she asked me to bring a swatch of my wedding dress material and also some images of bouquets I liked. So thought I’d share the images with you all.

Really like the colour of the ranunculus and the use of eucalyptus and winterberry.

This is very different form anything else I’ve seen – love the gray colours but maybe its not right for me.

This bouquet uses cockscomb (the deep-pink ruffle-edged flower) and a thick velvet-ribbon bouquet wrap to give a rich textured effect. The idea of a velvet ribbon wrap is great as I’m wearing a velvet coat at the wedding. I could get some of this material to use on my bouquet.

Those swirly shapes are so perfect for us! They’re quite a motif in our wedding and are in the save the dates, invites and bonboniere.

Excuse the two small photos but I love the idea of have hanging plums and berries as part of the table displays.
