Why did you fall in love with your dress (any wedding dress details please)? My dress is Alice by Jenny Packham, I tried on heaps of dresses ( a lot being Jennny Packham ones) the big puffy ones weren’t for me and as I’ve always had a love of vintage clothing especially the 1930s I just knew as soon as I put Alice on that I had to have her, she oozes 30 glamour which is the style I was after and she hung beautifully, I really did feel like a million dollars in her.
What was the favourite part of your wedding day? It was all just so wonderful but my favourite part was well there was two actually seeing my cheddar gorge Rob looking ashandsome as ever as I walked down the aisle knowing that in a few minutes he would be my husband (beforehand I had a word with the commissioner and asked if she would marry usas Fred and Miffy which is our nicknames for each other and Rob didn’t know anything about it so it was really sweet and made us giggle…) and the other favourite part was Rob’sspeech it was so beautiful it brought tears to my eyes. The whole day was so surreal really and one I will treasure forever.
Favourite finishing touches? As we got married in Canada it was a little trickier to plan things and not seeing them beforehand but we thought as we had such a beautiful venue there wasn’t really any need for anything else… We had a black and white theme, although my mother decided to buy a bright red dress but as she was the mother of the bride I thought it would be nice for her to stand out… So to match the theme we had white lilies and willow with a black feather boa base more black feathers pearls and crystals werescattered on the tables and we made thank you cards and table names to match. We brought black and white sweets from a local sweetie shop in Banff and filled the wine glasses with these and wrapped black lace around all the glasses. Rob loves the snow and he loves cake so he chose this, he picked a snowman cake, it was the most delicious fluffy cake I have ever tried we spent the rest of our holidays munching away on it.
Any top tip for other B2B?
Unless you absolutely LOVE something don’t go with it, don’t have any regrets…. It’s one of the biggest days in your life so make it perfect. Definitely set a budget though and if possible try creating things yourself if you need to bring the cost down. Even though it can be stressful planning a wedding try and enjoy it, you will miss it after the big day.
