wedding madness

Posted on

After consulting several books, buying endless rubbish magazines, reading blogs and receiving unwelcome advice, I decided that we should do things our own way.

The idea then was to save money and try to make things ourselves/with the assistance of friends.

We began with an empty village hall, which pretty much looked lovely as it was. We decided that any decor we put in should not overshadow the hall (no giant flower displays, balloons etc).

I collected teapots, old china and glass decanters from charity shops to use as vases, and decorated them with scarves, pearls and ribbons. I scanned in old wedding and family photos and put them in vintage frames. The rest of the hall was decorated with bunting (made with the kind assistance of friends). We covered the heaters with material and temporarily replaced the existing curtains with cream satin ones.

The fireplace was decorated with a birdcage, fairy lights and flowers.

In later posts I might provide more detail on the different bits we did.
