sales!! and wedding stress....


These will be winging their way to St Paul in Minnesota tomorrow morning, if I can get to the post office in time!!

Its a relief to think Yes, I AM doing something right!!

Wedding preparations proceed..unfortunately the Grouch who owns the village Beer Tent wont let us use it,so we are hunting around for as many gazebos as we can find!!  Grass has been mowed, patio pressure washed,yard swept....lets hope Mr Grumpy wont spoil the day.  (He is also the landlord of the pub where we will be getting married...we're working with his wife...long suffering, very hard working,marvellous cook.....)

We had been hoping to have straight line grass sprinting a la NZ and Oz...but if we have that on the village rec it involves risk assessments, pl insurance and possibly a council licence...£££££. Our one hope there is the Laird, who owns a lot of land...and who is coming to our wedding celebrations....!

We also have to think what will suit the coelics (allergic to gluten) , Crohn's disease sufferers, Lactose intolerants, veggies (most of my family) and vegans....

this covers about 20 + if not more...

But as the lady who is doing teas agreed,do something veggie and that often goes before all the veggies get to it!! 
The trick is to do something nice, don't tell the ones who don't need to know, that its special...and you all enjoy the same thing.

Now we understand why people employ others to organize weddings....

Certainly the 'vegetarian option' is always the first thing to disappear from any buffet table.... it's fresher and more colourful and appetising.

I am sure it will all go well. This time last year we were busy with peparations. When is your wedding - I must have missed it.

Ha, my head is just spinning reading this and a week to go!!! Sending you all the blessing!!
I always put out a huge platter of fruit and dip and a matching veggie platter with hummus.
Happy wedding day and into the far beyond :)

Your anniversary will be the day before ours. I am sure everything will be perfect on the day.

Wedding planning does tend to provide many headaches, but as I'm sure you know, they tend to work out fine. I'm happy for you! My husband's birthday is May the 4th; better for a birthday than an anniversary!
