Over the Easter weekend my parents came down to visit us in our new home in Bristol. Apart from being absolutely freezing, we had a good weekend. We started with dinner at Prosecco, a fabulous Italian restaurant in Clifton that has featured on one of Gordon Ramsey's shows. On Saturday we went shopping for jewellery for my mum to wear to the wedding, and bought some gorgeous Art Deco-esque pieces. The wedding was the activity of the day on Sunday.
Whilst my dad checked the final costings from our venue, my mum and I got out the guillotine and glue. We worked out how to do the pew end decorations, and made a really good start by making all the individual paper heart shapes (55 in total). Then we boxed them up and mum took them home to finish (thanks mum!).
The final draft of the order of service was approved (again a job for my Dad), and printing was going well until we started to run out of ink. More has been ordered and is on its way from amazon as I type!
And then we sat down, had a lovely roast dinner and some chocolate eggs. Because there wasn't much else to do. People keep asking Mum if she's really busy with wedding things, and she keeps saying no, not really. She is knitting cardigans, shortening dresses and planning the cake decorations, but apparently that doesn't make her busy! I haven't really had time to be busy(!) but I have managed to get an interview for the job I want. The interview is on the 24th, and the wedding is the 27th. I think that week I will be a whole new level of busy!
There are tasks that need to be done (in fact I should email the planner at our venue right now before I forget again), but there doesn't seem to be at many of them. Either I really have got everything done earlier than most brides, or I've forgotten a whole heap of things! I'll let you know on April 30th which one is true!
