The Wedding..Jubilee weekend

The table numbers.  Big shot Pro used for these labels (Sizzix Album Tags). Roses: flowers 3D, Frame scallop oval die.

The favour gift tags.  Sizzix framelits used again for the hearts.(heart 657561 and scalloped heart 657562).  I punched a hole and added curling ribbon to attach to the gift bags.

The suitcase table plan.  I lined it with a candy striped paper and doilies.  I used Sizzix framelits to make the flag bunting ( Pennant plain 657570 and Pennant scallop 657571).  My other half drilled holes into the sides to thread the ribbon through.


The bunting.  I managed to find a really pretty green, scalloped binding on ebay.

The table cards, menu and gift tags in action

The gift bags contained love heart sweets, jelly hearts and chocolate hearts.

I used the same cake design on the menu cards as the invitations.  A mirror disc was centred, with my vintage glass cakestand collection put to good use.  Ikea vases and tealights with vanilla scented candles, silk roses.

The Order of Service.
  I used the ticket design on the front with a paper rose for the Bride and Groom as they had the full service in theirs, with a small loveheart for the guests.  These were tricky as the service was a full Catholic Mass.  The Priest had asked us to print the whole thing!  which was 12 A4 pages long!  We managed to reduce it to 8 pages, so it was 2 sheets of A4 in booklet form - A5.  All this just 2 days before the wedding 45 booklets - wow, was I stressed.  Luckily my other half was put to good use with the (temperamental) printer.  Then sticking them in.  I thought about stitching them together, or punching 2 holes and threading ribbon...but in the end I used a cocktail stick to place glue in the folds to stick it all together.
