Best Wedding Snacks!ย  ย  ย  ย ย Beautifully handmade

There is always that point in your life when everyone starts getting married, over the last quarter of a decade there has been at least one every year. But this isn’t a complaint…could I talk about everything wedding related every day?

Am I a girl who demanded her mum make her a veil and train from net curtains, repeatedly lined up all her toys along the “aisle” and wanted “being a princess” to be a full time occupation?


*** I actually have a friend whose job is being a princess! See a later post, I am so jealous ***

The most recent wedding I attended really would be at home on the pages of a wedding magazine, the level of detail and time spent creating it really was incredible.

Normal table centre pieces consist of flowers, candles or confetti, so if you’ve got beautiful flowers worthy of being a brides bouquet, what else do you need? More flowers of course!

And candles.

And heart confetti, but not just pink heart confetti, personalised heart confetti cut out of maps due to the couples love of travel.

Oh and the little bouquets were in a variety of recycled jars and bottles adorned in ribbon and lace. SO CUTE.

So along with the main room being beautifully decorated, the bride had also created an adorable reception room, complete with a writing desk with typed and written messages of the couples first conversation. You could follow the story of their first encounter:ย part 1 in the typewriter, part 2 in the notebook, part 3 in the letter and the remaining in the filed envelopes! Not only was this incredibly personal, with both of their dissertations and travel plans laid out, you ended up wanting to take the writing desk home with you!

On ANOTHER table were photographs of both sets of parents and the grandparents who couldn’t be there to share the day with them, along with a candle and a journal for guests to leave wedding messages in.

The table plan was brilliant, I have never seen this done before. It’s quite common to see tables with themed names or places, but they are usually shown on a room plan. This bride (I would like to credit the groom as well, but I fear she is the one with the artistic talent) used a map as the backdrop for the different areas/ tables written on vintage postcards and on its own looked like a work of art compiled over many years.

And finally the food, weddings are difficult because you want to wear a nice dress but have the problem of the almost guaranteed onset of…the food baby.

If you somehow had avoided edible substances all day on account of your recently purchased dress, that fits perfectly…on an empty stomach but after you eat it becomes hard to breath in, (for the academics out there that formula is๐Ÿ‘—+๐Ÿฐ= ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿท^๐Ÿ˜ฉ) the bride had a solution to that as well.

When hunger reaches a level that you wonder “if I eat a bit of decoration off the wedding cake, will anyone notice?”, there was a TABLE OF PICK AND MIX AND A MINITURE POPCORN MACHINE!

No girl has ever felt so happy tucking into her little box of popcorn before filling a pink striped sweet bag to her hearts content. I have now made a rule to only go to the evening events of weddings for the good of my dresses/ weight (you cannot eat a cute box of popcorn and little pink bag of sweets and feel guiltly, ONLY HAPPINESS) ๐Ÿ˜

Vegas Weddings, Baseball and Harley Davidsons

Vegas travels

Vegas WeddingsLittle Chapel Little Chapel

When you think of Vegas you think of 3 things: gambling, partying and of course THOSE little church weddings. Surprisingly though most hotels have a wedding chapel they are really rather beautiful without even a hint of a fat Elvis. So you might have to venture out to find one. If you are walking to the Vegas sign there is one on the East side of the road. It was shut when we saw it but it was that perfect little chapel wedding venue…which we hate to admit but was quite pretty and intimate ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ‘ฐ๐Ÿผ

If you have time I would highly recommend going to see a baseball match, the local team are the Vegas 51s and you can get a ticket for a local game for $14. Experience the real USA, the atmosphere is brilliant, you can get $1 beers and if you’re lucky catch a baseball! (Or if you’re us, just ask very sweetly for a ball from a camera man and get all the team players to sign it!).

Wouldn’t suggest walking and getting a bus to the stadium, even the locals say the area isn’t very safe so just get a taxi it won’t be more than $30. Or get the sheriff to drive you home (English charm ๐Ÿ˜œ)

Harley Davidson Heaven…on the way to the Vegas sign on the East side, next to the Little White Chapel is a mega Harley Davidson shop. I don’t even ride a bike and I came away a little in love. It is expensive though, not just the bikes, a top is $60 so I didn’t even look how much a jacket was!
