We will definitely be having some sort of sweet table/cart as I love a good pick & mix but it's not something that we have often and since planning the wedding, eBay has become my best friend! I bought some metal scoops and tongs, which were planning to cover the handles with some hessian to tie in with our theme. Some kraft colour cups from Etsy and some sweet bags in gold from eBay so that people can take home the sweets in... I'm just trying to find some stickers that they can use to keep their sweets in the bags without breaking the bank.
With my Mum making the cake, we've been looking at different cake toppers for a long time and have finally found one we agree on... (HTB didn't want one at all!) I plan to paint it gold to fit in with our theme and give the cake a bit of colour too.
I've been planning to do some personalised hangers for the girls and found some white and rose gold wooden hangers in Primark that I thought would be perfect! I found a seller on eBay that sold decals with a font that I really liked and we tried one out to see what they would look like... I have to say, I'm not that impressed! You can see the plastic under each decal and I don't feel that they stick particularly well either... (please excuse HTB wonky name sticking)
So I think i'm going to have to start again with these... I'm just not sure on paying £3+ per hanger to have them engraved, although they do look lovely...
Two of my best friends (bridesmaid and usher) came to visit us in our new house for the first time in Feb (as we now live 2 hours away from my family and friends, it's usually me travelling back down there to see everyone) and brought with them a gorgeous engagement card and gift. We have our first official wedding photo album now and I'm very excited to fill it with pictures from the day, although it still seems so long away!
