and again, it was such a simple decision to go with her. I took along a few pictures but had no idea of names of flowers or anythingtechnical - but Tessa totally got it and was so lovely too! We loved all of the flowers on the day - Tessa did an amazing job, and I wouldnthesitate to recommend her. She took my vague autumny thoughts and crafted them into something beautiful;

;I wore a flower clip in my hair all day - bought from..BHS! One of my many bargains for the wedding.I also wore a diamond necklace that Dan had bought me for my 30th birthday, and a pair of gorgeous pearl and diamond earrings that Dans Mum boughtme for the

wedding.I didnt get myself organised enough to have the something borrowed, something blue etc. Bad Bride!!;

;I had thought I definitely wanted something lace, but not meringue-like or blingy. I tried on a few possibles at this shop, but pretty much knewwhen I tried on my dress that Id get karen millen outlet

it. And not just because it was a bargain!! It was an ex sample dress, was too big, and a bit tatty on thebottom, plus it had quite a lot of sparkle (bling!) to the dress as well as christian louboutin shoes

the vintage-style beading all the way across the front of the dress -but it was perfect for me!Once Id had it altered to fit me by a lovely christian louboutin outlet

local lady recommended by the shop, and the bottom tidied up with some extra lace that shed sourced,it was even more perfect! Its such a shame you only get to wear your dress oncequot;

Pip and Dan had a reveal shoot on the beach, prior to their actual ceremony

Dan wore cheap christian louboutin a suit from Marks and Spencers;We asked the Best Man and Groomsmen to karen millen dresses sale wear a black suit of their choice, and just provided them with a gold tie to go with it. And handsome theylooked too!;

life!. So I picked one up from Ebay (you might start tosee a theme soon) and got my dress alterations lady to add a bit of sparkle to it so it tied-in with the dress a bit more. I didnt have it on forthe beach photos, but for the ceremony itself and until my niece pulled christian louboutin uk

;As the venue was quite karen millen sale

rustic, christian louboutin sale and it was going to be getting dark by the cheap karen millen dresses

We christian louboutin uk also made our own menu cards and table numbers using the double-sidedTolsby frames from Ikea;

;Were both really into our music and decided pretty early on that wed love to have a live band on the night. The only tricky thing was findingone that wasnt overly cheesy but would get our friends and relatives on the dancefloor! We found the answer in The Mighty Persuaders - a reallygreat, modern band that had a pretty wide repertoire meaning we could

comments please? i really am craving chili but i want a good thick yummy recipe!
