When we were first contacted by Holly and Tim back in July 2012, we just knew this wedding was going to be pretty special from the Start! Holly was looking for her own design to be made for her wedding stationery and, using the VivienB's Bespoke Service, that is exactly what she got. A beautiful and very unique design, which we LOVED so much, it became one of the VivienB's collections: All You Need Is Love
We caught up recently with Holly to ask her a few questions about her big day whilst reviewing some of her fabulous photos. Photos Copyright to Rebecca Judge Photography.
Here's what she had to say...
How would you describe your wedding in three words?
"Fun, Romantic, Rustic"
What were your themes/Colours for the day?
"Neutral shades & sage green"
What is your "Top Tip" to any bride in planning their wedding?
"The planning is the most important part; get a spreadsheet drawn up early, know what your budget is and negotiate with suppliers. Book the key items early and ensure you have booked your date with enough time to save for your perfect day."
What is the no.1 "must have" on your wedding day?
"A right hand man/woman to handle any last minute requests from suppliers so you can enjoy your day. Also ensure you take a step back to appreciate all your hard work and to take in the moment; this is likely the only time that all the people you and your husband love the most in the world will be in the same room, at the same time all for you. It goes so quickly... treasure every second!"
If you could have changed one thing about your special day, what would it be?
"The only thing I would have changed would be using lavender for confetti... it really hurt!! :) We wanted something different but we should have gone for rose petals; dried lavender hurts when thrown at you from all angles and you don't get the same effect on the photographs!"
Why did you choose VivienB's to create your wedding stationery for you?
"Debbie worked really closely with me to design the Wedding Invitation in keeping with our theme; I had a very precise vision for the day and wanted the invitations to tie in. We had a couple of proofs and Debbie was so helpful and fabulous to work with. "
Thank you, Holly, for taking the time to share your wedding journey and experience with VivienB's future Brides-to-be! I think the Lavender tip is certainly something to be considered by everyone! But lovely idea!
