I feel like I have made real progress with the wedding planning this week. I went to Inspirations in Bromborough and got a load of tissue paper to start making the decorations for the tipis. If you take a look at some of the images on the All About Me website, some of the wedding tipis are decorated beautifully. Look at this one for example;
I am hiring all of the fairy lights from All About Me, but I am getting help from friends and family to make my own bunting and globes. Sam also has this ambitious idea to crate a centre piece made out of balloons and string! Sounds strange but he assures me it will look amazing. I will make sure I post photos here so that you can see the end result for yourselves and make your own judgement.
Samantha at All About Me has started a Pinterest wedding board and I think that this ‘creation’ is on there. There are also loads of other cool ideas for decorating, most of which can be done on a budget.
So that is this weeks mission. Every decoration can be prepared and flat packed so that it doesn’t take up too much room. And the Tipi team have given us plenty of time to be able to get into the tipis before the wedding to be able to decorate everything. They also provide all of our lighting and rig it all up, so we don’t have to worry about that side of things at all. Now we just have to think about table decorations. We aren’t doing traditional wedding favours, but a friend of mine is supposed to be brewing some sloe gin as we speak, so we may use that depending on how it turns out! We are thinking of using lots of tea lights, some origami flower centre pieces. We won’t need table place settings either as the meal is a hog roast. The tipi company are providing us with a separate catering tent so that all the food prep and any food storage can be kept separately.
It really feels like this wedding is starting to come together. But we still haven’t sent the invites!! At this rate, we will have an amazing wedding but no guests. Shouldn’t make jokes like that really. Not so sure why sending invites is so difficult. Did anyone else have this problem??????
