I’ve told the story of our wedding in a series of posts over the last couple of weeks – thanks for your patience! – and to round things off I thought I’d share some of the advice and sources that played such a big part in making our day a huge success.
Plan the party of your life
Early in the planning process, Richard and I were given the advice that we should plan the party of our lives.
Getting our wedding flowers right was a big deal to me as I used to work for the Flower Council of Holland earlier in my career. However, flowers can quite easily become expensive so it was an aspect of our wedding budget that I couldn’t splurge on either.
Two bouquets heavily influenced my choice of wedding flowers.
We decided very early on in our planning that we wanted to have a marquee reception in my family’s boatyard, just as my sister had.
