Slaters suit hire
How would you sum up your day?
lots of love and laughter – the best day of our lives.
Did you have a theme or colour scheme?
Vintage Chic! Colour scheme was ivory with a hint of very light pink though detail & flowers
Did you have any personal touches? Or things that you did yourself?
We did a lot of things ourselves! We hired the printers to print the invitations & orders of service – we made them and added the light pink knots on each one which took days! I hand wrote all of the table names & I also made and hand wrote the table planner.
How many guests?
122 day guests + 20 evening
What were your special moments/highlights?
Putting on my dress, walking up the aisle as a married couple, greeting everyone as we came out of the church, the speeches, standing on the stage when our evening guests arrived looking around and absorbing it all in – everyone was having such an amazing time! I cried at the end because i did not want the day to end!
Is there anything you would do differently?
No – not a single thing, it was perfect!
What advice would you give any other couples?
I know its a cliche but enjoy every single minute of it! Cherish the time you and your husband have together when you leave the church/in the car together – as everything else is a complete whirlwind!
What was your biggest surprise of the day?
Bens speech was fantastic, what he said was so touching and beautiful – a real tear jerker!
