As I mentioned when I showed you our invitation, we had a travel theme at the wedding, decorating with suitcases, globes and maps wherever we could. The vintage feel this added was awesome, and it was a fun way to symbolize our long distance love!
Our centerpieces were an assortment of bottles spray painted silver, filled with assorted greenery, carnations & a paper flower. Tealights were wrapped with washi tape and placed on wooden `cookies`. Paper napkins in wine glasses provided a fabulous pop of colour and each table also had a Willow Tree ornament from my collection (as well as a few from friends!)
Our wedding guests were seriously the BEST EVER! So many of them brought umbrellas with them and actually sat in the rain to eat their meal. Everyone seemed to have a fantastic time and I'm quite sure it was a wedding nobody will forget anytime soon... Our reception was cut short, visiting happened under tents or in the rain, but it was an amazing day! We wrapped things up by squishing under a tent for the cake cutting, then we danced in the rain, lit sparklers and made our exit!
I know to some people it sounds like a nightmare, but for us it was perfect and I wouldn't change a thing! The important thing is that I married my best friend and we got to celebrate with so many family and friends!
