This weekend Mike and I headed to Norwich to meet the rest of our potential vendors and make some crucial wedding decisions. The meetings all went so smoothly, and i'm delighted to say that aside from Mike's suit hire and my hairdresser, all our external vendors are booked. Yipppeeee!!
Here are the chair covers and ribbon colours we're chosen. (These are exactly the same ones we will have but that isn't our venue in the background:
The ribbons are the exact same colour as the bridesmaids dresses. Which absolutely made my day, because other vendors have found the colour so hard to match!
Here is the car I will be arriving to the church in with my daddy, and leaving in as a married woman (eek!):
It's a 1952 Triumph Renown Limousine. We will be having silver ribbons. There are only 7 of this car left in the world, and this one was originally built for the editor of the Daily Mail. Although its about a decade older than I was looking for, I fell in love with this car, and its backstory. It also has a big back seat which is important, as i'm wearing a big dress!
After being let down by our original florist, we met another one on Saturday who has agreed to do our wedding on what is, surprisingly, pretty short notice! Here are our inspiration pictures for our floral tabel centrepieces:
We're going for vintage blush pink. The bridesmaids bouquets, the buttonholes and the corsages for the mums will all be in the same colours.
We also met a harpist who played Coldplay, The Beatles, Take That and even Stevie Wonder for us on her harp; we wanted the traditional instrument to play very contempory music to add to the topsy turvy wonderland feel of the event. She's even going to learn some of the Rolling Stones hits, because they're my favourite band. Awesome!!
And finally, before we came home on Sunday afternoon, we did our menu tasting. Oh my god it was amazing!!! So hard to choose, but choose we have. I'm waiting for pictures of the food from the venue. As soon as they arrive i'll post them and leave you all to drool....
All in all, an amazing weekend!
Love, Tor xx
