Top Ten Tips :: 10 - Be unique...

Make your wedding stationery unique, find a stationer who will work with you to produce a design/theme that is different and reflects you as a couple. Not only does your invitation give the relevant details about your day (who, where, when) but it offers guests an exciting sneaky peek into whats in store! Have fun, add special little touches (maybe a love quote or a story of how you got together) these are the little things that your guests will appreciate and remember. You are announcing one of the biggest days of your lives, your day, your stationery, your way... Do it in style!

Real Wedding :: Beth & Cliff - Before...

I am so excited to be sharing these gorgeous photos taken by Sarah Vivienne Photography with you this week. I found it hard to choose just a few to post (I love them all) so I decided to split them into 3 sections (before, the wedding, the reception) and then post them over the next 3 days so you get to see as much eye candy as possible!

You can find out more about Sarah via her website While your over there make sure you check out her blog where you will find more of her recent work.

Beth and Cliff were married on Sunday 5th September 2009 at St. Mary's Church, Weldon, Northants followed by a reception held in a marquee in Beth's parents' home/garden (also in the village of Weldon)... I love the fact that Beth got to walk to the Church!

Top Ten Tips :: 9 - Saying thank you...

Remember the guest name and address list you gathered for your invitations? Well make a note to keep it in a safe place as you will need it again when its time to thank your guests! When you start opening your gifts, make a note of each gift next to the giver's name and address, it will help to remind you which guest bought which gift when it comes to writing your notes.

Top Ten Tips :: 8 - Extra information...

Have you chosen to marry abroad? Hold your wedding outdoors? Or maybe have a black tie dress code? Including the relevant details for your big day on an information card with your invitations allows your guests to plan and dress (etc) accordingly. You may also want to include accommodation details, directions or a map and details of your gift list.

Love Notes :: 17

You've shared with me some special times 

our friendship grows each day,
We've shared our secrets and our dreams
and laughed along the way.

And now at this most special time

as my wedding day draws near,
I'm so happy to have you by my side

to calm the jitters and the fears.
So when I'm walking down the aisle

a very happy bride,
You should know it means a lot to me 

to have you by my side.
