I married the man of my dreams, my partner, Raymond, on May 16th. We crafted as much as we could for the wedding...I thought I'd share a few pictures!
My amazing new husband! Can you tell I'm happy? My mother made my dress, his shirt, and the best man's shirt, while my best friend made her own dress. My best friend (Wanda) made the jewels for my hair, and we made our jewellery (although I am wearing a necklace my late father gave me as my something old.) My dress was very elaborate - my mom hand made all the buttons. It's nice to have a mother who is a professional dress maker!
For my bridal shower, we made candles to burn at the wedding!
Wanda made 150 cookies - 2 small, 1 large - to give as favours. On each large one she wrote either "Ray & Sue" or "Sue & Ray" and we packaged them in cello bags.
Of course we had to make our own cake! It was a vanilla cake with lemon filling and butter cream and marshmallow icing. Our best man found these little Pez dispensers, and in the background we have hidden 2 little gummy bears peeking from the bushes behind the happy couple. (We make strange cakes decorated with various gummy animals, such as the teddy bear's picnic/massacre. This represents our normal cake decorating techniques).
We decorated the tent with flags that represent us and what we like. These three represent SueWanda land (Wanda and I set up the campsite with two tents and all the necessities in 45 minutes, so we declared it our land), Upper Chesterfieldia and East Bedrovia, which represent the glow in the dark slug wars we used to have in our bedroom.
It was an amazing day and I'm so glad we made so much of it! Just wanted to share!
