The day before.......

2 days to go and we can finally set up our wedding Marquee. The Marquee was already up on Nettlestead Place so all we had to do was create a tent into an absolute jaw-dropping dream world J

We started with sticking down our evening dance floor with our beautiful silver initials. Thanks to our amazing Uncle David Fagg J

Then we added the carpet (I say we but we just watched the carpet being laid). The carpet where everyone were going to be seated was a white/cream colour and where the guests were going to be entering was a dark beige colour (knowing it would be raining and muddy) so the mud wouldn’t show up as much!

Once the carpet had been laid we could then add all the table and chairs. We had one long table, four round tables both sides, cake table and our top table.

Table and chairs set we were able to start and DIVA/Jenna everything up J White table clothes and cutlery laid by the caterers. 
Now the fun can begin.

We started with putting the menus out to everyone (can I just add these were all handcrafted by mummy and helped by Liane and I). We bought little stick-on diamantes and stuck them next to the guests dinner choice just incase they forgot and to help the caterers out for when they delivered the guests their food on our special day day J

 We also added to the table our favors, they were Lindt chocolate bars wrapped with the same paper format as our menus with the guests names on.

Then we had our table names, each card (same format as all the others) had a different song that Josh and I love. We had the title of the song and also our favourite lyrics from the song but with a twist J the title of the songs were written in Spanish J

Our flowers were created by the BEST florists ever, Girl Flower. Take a look at their Blog on our wedding.

With everything set in the main reception we sprinkled thousands and thousands of different sized diamantes everywhere and added a couple of candles to the tables.

In the Entrance we had 6 white sofas for chilling J and an oval table where we put our wishing tree and our book for guests to sign that was beautifully created by Dalver Birak.

To display our table plan we bought a BEAUTIFUL full-length mirror where we could stick each table with our guests’ names on. So when our guests were trying to find where they were sitting they could fix their lipstick or moustache ;)

I’m not going to lie most of the last minute touches were done whilst I was sleeping, as the drastic weather was taking over the entire marquee. Mum, dad, Ryan, the mills boys and Jeremy helped created the finished masterpiece, the dry masterpiece! We are forever grateful.

I could not wait to see the finished product :)
 Bring on tomorrow (Our Wedding Day)
