So this wedding of ours is going to be a small affair, very small in fact, possibly a bride a groom and two witnesses type of thing. As I started writing THE list it all seemed to get a bit-if we invite this person you have to ask that person and so on and so forth. Then it ended up being stressful and not much fun. If you carry on like this in the end its not really how you would have chosen to spend your day but more a case of keeping everyone else happy.
I have always thought elopement was quite a romantic notion and I baulk at the idea of even as few as twenty people staring at the back of my head expectantly waiting for me to speak. So the fine details such as a date still need to be confirmed, work and other things keep getting in the way lately, everyone else seems to be concerned I wont get the day I want but I'm not a bride-zilla demanding a certain date, season or venue I guess we'll just see what dates are available, we are pretty relaxed about it, after eight years another few months shouldn't make a difference? So the images here are some amazing food for thought from the site of the exceptionally talented Rebecca Thuss. The weddings-parties section is packed full of such pretty ideas the possibilities are endless.
We like the idea of sending our family and close friends a handmade gift or favor that will arrive on the morning of the day we intend to get married. The family have been told of our intentions the friends haven't but that will be a sweet surprise in their mailboxes some day soon. I would like to create something that looks like an old family heirloom or a smaller version of that little box of memories Audrey tautou discovers as Amelie.
