Wednesday again and guess what's on my desk today?

Answer.....Everything wedding related of course.

  • 3 flower girl dresses....steamed
  • 3 flower girl aprons
  • 3 flower girl shrugs [just in case]
  • 2 page boy suits...pressed
  • 4 pink bridesmaid's dresses....steamed
  • 4 pair bridesmaid's silver sandals
  • Wedding dress ....steamed
  • Netted underskirt....steamed
  • Veil....steamed
  • 60 favour boxes each filled with pink and white heart shaped jelly beans
  • everything ready in waiting to decorate the wedding cake tomorrow
  • order of services in their box
  • table plan for reception....etc etc etc
Yes as you can imagine my little sewing room is full to overflowing and it's certainly been a hot steamy week for me.

Just as well I have plenty of hanging space eh?
The special ivory dress is just on the right hand edge of the screen but that will be revealed next week...if I can find you a pic or two.  :-)

Jo helped me fill the favour boxes on Monday...I hope you notice our excellent food hygiene  :-)....if we dropped any then we just had to eat them!!
Please help yourselves to a jelly heart or two....we have a few left over  :-)

Just so you know that I have found a few moments to sit and enjoy the's a pic of  4 baby swallows that like to sit on the line right outside our kitchen window waiting to be fed.....and look at that sky!!!!!

Please can we have it like that on Saturday for the wedding.  :-)

That's all from me for today folks...still lots of the last minute jobs to do yet.
  • Pick up suits
  • Take everything to the hotel ready for the reception....etc etc etc etc
Thanks for calling by.  Please leave me a comment and I will do my best to pay you a return visit.

Di said...

Oh Annie, how exciting, I can't believe the big day is almost here. Super photos (did you see my nose against the screen then - and I licked a jelly heart too!?) and everything looks on track.

Will be thinking of you all on Saturday, my prayer mat is out for good weather. Regardless, it's gonna be a day full of joy.

Hugs, Di xx

Julia Dunnit said...

Ah Annie, however busy, I bet you've had a wonderful week getting ready for such a precious day. Don't worry about the weather, it will take care of itself. And lot won't even notice! Happy Wedding to y'all. And I do like the swallows...but really, we've so many at the workshop that the guano is becoming a real issue. grrrrrr!

Catriona said...

Happyday to you all on Saturday Annie. It sounds so well organised that it should golike a dream. Looking forward to photos next week after you have had a lie down in a cool place to recover!

Unknown said...

Hi Annie - It is looking good for a sunny wedding I will keep my fingers crossed for you. I could just do with a jelly bean as my tummy is rumbling for breakfast! Have a fabulous time at the wedding and well done for all your hard work (you deserved the odd fallen jelly bean I think!) Happy WOYWW to you from Helen 39

Helen said...

You have been so busy doing so much for this wedding, you deserve to be rewarded with fine weather and blue skies.... good luck to you all!! Helen 6

Sounds, hectic, Annie but you sound like you have everything organised. How's the cake going???
I'm very envious of that amazing blue sky. Just cloud here in Yorkshire. We haven't really seen the sunshine this week but still warm!!
Good Luck with everything and have a fantastic day.

I do think the preparations are as good as the main event... like having people sit with you talking whilst you cook before everyone eats,

yah family is good, friends are wonderful, being sociable is the bees knees

Karen said...

How you find the time to fit it all in I'll never know. Superwoman has nothing on you!!! Love your desk and workspace! Happy WOYWW! Karen T 66 x

SueH said...

That’s an awful lot of work Annie but it’ll be work all the effort in the end because everyone is going to look stunning. I can’t wait to see the pictures!
Hope you didn’t eat too many of those Jellybeans thought otherwise you’re not going to fit into your outfit, Lol.

I’m praying for good weather at the weekend too because I’m going to my cousins Hog Roast.
I’ll be thinking of you all on Saturday. !

Kate said...

Wishing you lovely weather and a beautiful day. Oh, and thanks for the jelly heart.

famfa said...

Busy lady. Lovely wedding stuff. I wonder how many jelly beans were eaten! Fingers crossed for Saturdays weather. Can't wait to see wedding dress x

mamapez5 said...

I'm praying for sunshine for you on Saturday. It would be a fitting reward for all your hard work. Love the baby swallows. Kate x

Princess Judy Palmer said...

I don't know if you are tired after all that or not, but I am and I just read about it. I'm applauding the good good handling hygiene and I totally understand the need to eat any contaminated jelly beans. The baby birds are so cute. I suppose they are more juvenile now than baby, but still waiting to be fed. Just like husband....

trisha too said...

Amazing. What a lot of love must have gone into all this preparation!

I need one of those jelly hearts, please . . .

RosC said...

I am im-pressed ++ with the effort and organisation. Wow. Everything looks so lovely.

Those swallows are so gorgeous, and remind me of a stamp I have. Think I'll create something sunny for your good weather omen. Also putting in a word with the Sky Mother for clear days until after the wedding.

Neet said...

Oh Annie, you amaze me with your energy. You are an inspiration.
thanks for the update for Saturday, will be thinking of you and will put in a special request for those blue skies.
You are so lucky not to be in the NW where we have had it warm but dull whilst others have basked in sunshine.
Just hope you have the bestest (not really a word?) day.
Hugs, Neet xxx 8

Tilly Tea Dance said...

Hi Annie - George here! Max is a bit busy tonight so she asked me to pop over and leave you a comment. Those gloves match the outfit - hope she saves a few sweets for me! x G

Anne said...

Gosh what a lot you have achieved this week. I do hope that the weather will be kind for you all on Saturday. Have a wonderful time. Sorry I'm so late visiting. Anne x

scrappymo! said...

How exciting! Can't wait for the dress pictures! Such a wonderful time...but you sure seem organized!

Elizabeth said...

Hi Annie, double the pleasure for me today, your WOYWW post and the Friday Smile - there are some advantages to being so late. I truly hope you get that blue sky tomorrow but if not, I hope you still have a lovely day and everything goes well for the bride on her big day. Here's to a fabulous weekend for you. Elizabeth x #24
