They'er quite similar but I'm leaning towards the one on the right.

I this this little statement is a beautiful acknowledgement of those who will be in our hearts but unfortunately not at our wedding.  I think I will use it.

In Loving Memory

Today, candles are lit to remember those who left us too soon, but not before gracing us with special memories only they could create. They have helped shape our character, mold our spirits and touch our hearts. We know that they are with us in thought and in spirit today and always. We love them and miss them very much.

I found it on this guide to making memorial candles.

I really fell for this the second I saw it.  It's Jessica Simpson's wedding 'do.

But I don't want a veil.  Instead I'd LOVE a tiara.  I've wanted one since I was a kid!!!!   ....FI has told me that he likes veils so I'm going to wear one.  But just for the ceremony!!

Although I've just seen this

The boys are a nice simple task!!


The Boys photo 1

The groomsmen will wear a royal blue cravat tie.


Our son will be 1year and 5months when we get married so hopefully he'll be our pageboy/ringbearer!!  Not quite sure yet if he'll be up to the job but we want him involved some way.

Hopefully I can find something similar to the lads.  Will post a pic if I find it! 


The groomsmen will be wearing blue TIES and FI and DS will be wearing matching silver ties made by meandmatilda on Etsy

They will be silver faux silk

We bought these diy Laura Ashley invitations from

Invitations photo 5

and I LOVE them.  Only problem I can forsee is getting the bow right.  Any hints would be appreciated!  I'm thinking of adding pages to them like a map, from Church to Hotel, and accomodation details.

Below is an attempt at our invitation.  Unfortunately I'm an idiot and put the wrong date on it but you get the idea!
