Wish tree for our wedding. Tree branch cut down from the local woods and the leaves were left to drop off. We string battery powered fairy lights amongst the branches and brown labels were written on by guests and hung on the tree.
The Mother-of-the-Groom created a special jar of flowers for the wedding with the favourite flowers of the grandparents that had died. We then titled it with a slate label 'absent family'. There were sunflowers, stocks, roses etc.
Wedding flowers grown by Mother-of-the-Groom. Rustic and country selection. Beautiful blues, whites and purples. We collected the jars and decorated them with blue and white electrical tape and raffia.
Book themed table numbers for our wedding. No books were harmed though, we printed the text from the Internet, over printed a table number no then aged the sheets. Each table was a different book. Each book was one that we loved.
We had a wedding bake off. A selection of family and friends made a different dessert. We printed cards to place in front of them with the description and guest's name. We also printed flags from the Internet to place in the cakes to decorate them. They were all placed on different sized wooden slices we chopped and sanded down ourselves. We also painted the sign on a canvas.
