We worked for the same company. I already had a boyfriend but my colleagues kept saying they thought we would get on even though I wasn’t interested in him!
He proposed in the bath! It was Valentine’s Day 2002 in a quaint little hotel in Hampshire.
Yes! Scott’s stag do was in Stringfellows, London and my hen do was at Madame Jojo’s in Soho.
Scott listened while I ranted! He sorted out his own outfit, helped with table plan and took over any problems I ran into that I was too stressed to deal with.
I did initially use the confetti website but as the wedding was in Prague it wasn’t always convenient or relevant.
I visited the store on numerous occasions, went to lots of store events.
Gorgeous, white, spaghetti straps, a-line, no train and with lots of sparkle.
My bridesmaid was my eight year old niece. She wore a similar dress to mine with burgundy roses on the straps to go with the burgundy and ivory/white theme
Scott’s best man was a childhood friend of over 30 years who wore a dark suit with a burgundy and ivory tie I had bought. My brother (who gave me away) also wore the same tie.
We had a civil ceremony.
The Old Town Hall, Prague, Czech Republic.
Zofin Palace, Prague.
We had 30 guests to the entire wedding – there was no separate evening party as it was in Prague.
The theme was Bohemian and colours were burgundy and white/ivory.
The tables had names like ‘Bohemia’, ‘Wenceslas’, ‘Vltava’ – all names associated with Prague.
Yes, each person was given a lottery ticket in an envelope inscribed with the words ‘I should be so lucky…’
The flowers were a bargain from ebay! They were silk flowers in white and burgundy including a garland for the cake.
The reception was in a restaurant and they handled all the catering. We had Baroque lobster cocktail with toast, Bohemian Rhapsody potato soup with devils boletus, gothic herbed lamb chops, Rococo English style beef filet with mushroom sauce, peeled Transalvanian tomatoes & potato rissoles. And for pudding…chestnut crème brulée with fresh renaissance strawberries.
Our wedding cake was a light sponge with fresh cream, filled with fresh fruit.
Yes, we had a DJ and provided a playlist of songs including songs for cutting of the cake.
No – as our guests were coming to Prague we thought that was expense enough for them! We still got lots of vouchers though!
We spent our first night in Prague and our honeymoon in Thailand.
Walking out of the Old Town Hall as man and wife. The sun was shining and there were loads of people in Prague town square all taking pictures of us when they realised there was a wedding.
Ask the photographer to do a few ‘fun’, reportage style photos – formal shots of family look too rigid in a straight line. My advice on the day would be to delegate as much as possible so you can relax and look around at everything – also to stand up straight for the photos!
