Marquees, Menus and more

This weekend we made a few big decisions about the wedding :) We picked our marquee, decided the menu, finalised the guest list and started printing invitations. I decided what to do for my hen do and lovely BM chose his best man. We figured out the timetable of the day and i found a cute b&b to sleep at the night before the wedding! Its getting very very real!


We decided to not got for a traditional marquee, were having a trapeze marquee, with arched sides. This means the guests can still see the beautiful view of the lavender field. The arches have optional clear plastic covers, in case the weather doesnt cooperate. Its a big marquee 40ft by 60ft with a dancefloor and a bar, along with seating for 120. (Its probably bigger than our actual house!). But, if the weather is bad, i want to make sure its not cramped.

Were having lots of canapes (i love canapes!!) when the guests arrive and then weve gone for a cold buffet for the wedding breakfast. The prep involved in hot food or waiter service is just too much of a complication in a marquee in a field, and i want a nice easy wedding. So were going to have a selection of cold meats and salads with wedding cake and fruit for desert. Then in the evening were going to have cheese, crackers, pate, bread and fruit, just to keep everyone going!

The wedding to do list never seems to end! I really need to stop looking on pinterest and get carried away with all the inspiration i find! Games, decorations, cakes, shoes, favours, cake toppers, it goes on and on!
