Brain storming

Apologies for banging on about it
But the sisters ( and their spouses)
Came around this evening for the first " wedding" brainstorming session
This " action shot" is of them flicking through wedding mags
I love janet and Ann's ideas for decorating the village hall already
Jam jars with spring flowers
Cream scones and bacon butties

( there are no dogs in this photo as Winifred over excited herself with the female company and had to be led away to the kitchen with the others to lay down in a darkened room)

  3. Bang on about it as often as you like. In case you hadn't notice we are interested. A big and exciting day deserves some banging on.

    1. Stop it, Lady. I don't "think" I love John. I KNOW I love John. John is MINE.

      To keep the peace: Maybe we can carve him up and share him around. So we all get a bite.

  9. As your sisters were in horizontal stripes - I trust that you were also wearing a Breton sailor's outfit.
    P.S. Why is Chris asleep?

  12. I found a link to this place on Joanne N.'s blogroll.
    Brainstorms are better with big flashes of lightning shooting around the room. Hey could you tell me (non-Brit) what a bacon buttie is? Sounds like something you might do on a farm.

  14. I have suggestions for you John because I would love to design a man wedding. Paper lanterns....dozens...all in one color but various shades...oh...and how about bunting....I love bunting.

  15. I'm loving the wedding posts.
    Nice to see Janet again.

  16. How cute about Winifred, and your wedding plans are shaping up. I like the flowers in jars idea, and simplicity. And I am pleased to say I know what a bacon buttie is, from watching so much British tv, here in California.

  17. Love the ideas of the jam jars and flowers.... more to think about

    cheers, parsnip

  18. In The Vicar of Dibley, at Alice's wedding she had her 'pageboys' dressed as Telly Tubbies. I trust something equally unforgettable is being planned!

  19. Brain storming implies the requirement for a brain, therefore I would be hopeless at it.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I hope there is bunting, and games for small visitors

    ReplyDelete
  21. We had a bouncy castle for the kids and karaoke for the adults, classy or what? free and fun as both donated by friends for the day x

    ReplyDelete
  23. Poor Winnie she only wanted to put her two bits in about her bridesmaid dress!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm wearing stripes too. I love spotting all the different blue & white stripey tops this summer.
    Sounds divine. Jam jars perfect. Bunting, & a stick tree to hang labels with messages on for you to keep.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Bang on as much as you like, The more the better. Jam jars, butties, scones plus sausage rolls and scotch eggs, I hope. And bunting. Rustic theme, very suitable.

  26. And lots of champagne........

    ReplyDelete
  27. With so many people helping out, the big day should be a great success. Especially if there's plenty of champagne, wedding cake and fancy outfits.

  28. One of my (English) husband's conditions on proposing to me (in Paris) that we marry asap (within three months). Him having witnessed his own sister's wedding preparations he couldn't face a long engagement. After his mother had calmed down at the prospect of not being given a lot of time to flap around everything was fine.

    Still, you are both guys - and I chose the letter 'u' deliberately, so you'll be measured throughout the process. Sisters notwithstanding.

    As to Winifred and women: It's the one thing I don't like about dogs. Sniffing your crotch. Uninvited. It's downright rude.

  32. Love the plans and décor! It is coming together....Saw these ideas also on Pinterest.

  33. Decades of dreaming that marriage might be possible, enjoy it, do what you want, set your own rules.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Where's the Scotch Eggs and Champagne ... lots of champagne :-)

    You really need to work on this list ... Lol

    ReplyDelete
  35. Bang on and on......for it's over before you can blink......Men in Kilts over at mine (jam jars with Spring flowers on either side of path leading up to the Church door is what we had and they looked charming).Need any help, gies (pronounced 'gees', short for 'give us') a shout. x

  36. Bacon butties?

    Love,
    Janie

  37. I really do mean it about the bunting. Probably without medical equipment fabrics included! Just tell me your colour scheme (no wedding is complete without a colour scheme!)

    1. I can crochet him some too, if it's the 'Larkrise to Candleford' look they're aiming for. Just don't ask him to wear a crown of seasonal flowers around his bonce (head)!

    2. Oh I wish you would xx

  38. Does the groom-to-be always have that nose-in-the-air snooty superior look about him? I imagine he thinks that you are exceptionally lucky to be getting him and is presuming some sort of dowry will be paid to him for accepting you.
