Rebecca's Wedding Rebecca's Wedding

From the moment you announce your engagement you’ll have an army of friends and family asking questions and making suggestions.  Everyone will have a different opinion on the most important aspects of the day.  For some it will be the dress for others the venue or food and drink.  Some will argue in favour of a small, intimate wedding, while others will feel that a wedding is an opportunity to be extravagant.  My advice to you as you plan your big day is to decide on the things that are important to you.  Of course it is important that you take into account the feelings and opinions of those close to you, but you must remember it is your day and your desires are most important.

The Benjamin's Special Day

Wednesday, Dec 22, 2010

The special parts of my day

One of the best parts of preparing our wedding was the table names. My husband and I visited places that were special to us, especially beaches. We took pebbles and stones from these places and with white paint and a steady hand, named our tables after places we loved, Bredon Hill, Three Cliffs Bay and Sousa beach, this one was where James proposed to me.

This gave our tables a personal touch and we were able to put the stones in our garden at home after to remind us of our special day. Doing something like this adds a unique touch to your day and makes it your own.
