    So I thought I'd share some of my insanity with you.
    When I sit down and think about it considering We only decided at the end of April to get married we seem to be pretty organised! :)

    We don't have a traditional family set up (who does these days? :D ) and with H2B having no family it made a traditional sit down meal / formal thing a little awkward.
    So our theme is English Vintage tea party ... think high tea, afternoons playing croquet on the lawns and Alice in Wonderland! :D

    There are 44 people coming to the ceremony and the 'late afternoon tea' (which has caused me some grief .. my 'older' relatives keep asking me what does afternoon tea mean?! My retort 'what do you think it means?' basically they are p'd off that I'm not forking out £50 a head for them to eat a roast dinner!!!) Anyway ...

    Venue

    Hadley Park Hotel

    My Dress - unfortunately I don't have any pics of me in it... my fitting is 6th July, I will ensure pics are taken!

    Phew... that's all the pics I have .. my mum has a load of shabby chic style teapots and cups at her house which we have been collecting to put the flowers in on the tables. She's also making my some card shapes (hearts, spades, clubs diamonds etc) out of red and black rolled icing which we're going to scatter on the tables too.


    Off this afternoon to confirm the numbers to the hotel, and tomorrow to the registry office to confirm ceremony details, music etc.

    Wow it all looks so amazing!! What a wonderful idea with the afternoon tea. Glad you are not giving in to your relatives putting pressure on you to do a wedding breakfast. I bet afterwards they will say that it was the best wedding they have ever been to as it sounds like such a wonderful relaxed day! :)

    Can't wait to see the pics of you in your dress. it is a stunning dress by the way.
