Mood Boards


The wedding organisation  has to be " shared out" ...as it always needs to be
I have a wedding " meeting" planned for Saturday night with my two sisters where a " mood board" will be discussed... (I need straight women to sort some of the  issues out....... They can think of things that would pass my bubble head by.......it may surprise some of you but I had never heard of a " mood board" before!
When chris was told about it...he just raised one of his Roger Moore eyebrows
The "look" We would like.....is " old fashioned mix and match"
Does that make sense?
My sister in law cannot make this meeting so she will be in charge of organising the fairy lights for the hall
( she has agreed)
So much to do...... A site meeting is next!

There is a wedding planned for the village hall this sat
I photographed their decorations yesterday morning.........the photo doesn't quite captures how pretty the hall looks......I especially like the strings of lights.

  1. We bloggers should host a "blogger wedding reception" for you and Chris. Hmmmm. I'll have to talk with Delores.

    Ah... The Fairy Lights... a crucial feature I'm sure. I look forward already in the hope of photos.

  10. I had to delete my first message because auto correct was incorrect.

    I wish I was a local so that I could give you both a big hug in person and wish you much happiness and a great life together.

    Why are you waiting a whole year?

  11. Fortunately we don't have to be present to sob.

  12. And now the fun begins...colour co-ordination, flowers, tablecloths, china, food, music....and on and on we go. Will there be a honeymoon?

    2. I'm wondering if there are any regulations on throwing virtual confetti? I reckon if we all join in it'd make a terrible mess!

      Delete
  15. Cro Magnon is right. And the Cyber Space wedding will be very, very crowded.

  16. What's the catchment area?
    I used to know someone who lived on Anglesey, would that count if I lodged there? (just while the banns were read, of course).

  17. Planning a feast is such a thrilling time. So good that your sisters can help you. Your mood-board look good!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'm going to buy a cyber hat...

    ReplyDelete
  19. I would like to be there for the wedding John, but I will have to support you both from afar. So much to plan eh?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Local eh? well I guess that rules most of us out....although some of us might do a 'just passing through' and peek through the village hall windows/doors.........we could organise a chara.....

    ReplyDelete
  21. I've always termed them 'fairy lights' too, but when I used the term at work once everybody laughed - maybe because it came from me. However I don't know of any alternative expression - and everyone knows what you mean.

    ReplyDelete
  22. i would love to come but i would only say whatever makes you happy so not much input from me just enjoy

    ReplyDelete
  23. How exciting all the preparations!
    I think a cyber wedding sounds great.
    Happiness to both of you.

  24. A mood board is a good idea as it will give you an overview of the kind of look 'mood' you want to achieve for the wedding. Have fun at your wedding 'meeting'! x

  25. My lovely niece had a mood board & her wedding was magical for everyone x

    ReplyDelete
  26. I live very locally to you, would you mind if my sister & I are outside of the hall to throw confetti on behalf of all of you cyber friends. It would also be personal for my sister because you nursed her in intensive care last year.x

  28. I'd love to go, but we may well be in house hunting in Spain then (plan is to drive out at the end of April for a few weeks). If we're in this country and I can sort of a babysitter for Tiny Human then I'll be there :-)

  29. Oh drat! I didn't photograph All Bar One for you yet! I will go into town today. I'm not sure how I'll send you the pictures though.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Pinterest has so much to offer....just type in your wedding thoughts and you will get so many photos and ideas. And you are right in getting everything ready so you can relax and enjoy the time leading up to the big day. If only I could fly over!

  31. All the flower show committee will be invited!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Sounds like fun, keep it simple, and enjoy it. I am looking forward to the live webcast.

  33. It will be perfect, John, no matter the "mood".

    We had a lady purchasing vintage clothing and shoes for her wedding. Last year someone wanted everything we had that was rusty in the shop for her wedding!

    It is will be a day you always remember. You will forget the planning and pains and remember only the joy.

    Chris is a lucky man.

  34. The 'countdown' is on! How exciting for you and Chris! And for all of us here in cyberland too!!
    I had never heard of a 'mood board' either.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm with Chris in the eyebrow department I'm afraid. x

  36. Video it and share it with us!! I am very excited for you and Chris!

  37. There was a mood board for my wedding, such plans & preparations you never saw the like.
    A pity mother-in-law forgot to organise a photographer . . . . I have 3 photos, snapped by a friend on her little Box Brownie. One of me and himself with our bridesmaid; one of mother-in-law and father-in-law and one of my Mum & Dad. Ah well, the marriage didn't last anyway, so hey-ho.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oops! Forgot to say - all the very best for your wedding day celebrations and for many years to come.

  39. We're free to hold the dog leads if you like! Looking forward to following the run up!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Our wish is that you and Chris have a long and happy marriage and make every day as special the one that goes by.

  41. Mood Board - never heard of it. It does sound like everything is in hand. I like the lighted streamers.

    ReplyDelete
  42. oh Lord help us, wedding planning. Two of our nieces in the last 2 years, and they just about lost their minds.

    Stay strong!

  43. That bunting looks a little bit like pairs of undies! hehehe. Would you like me to whip up 50m or bunting for you? Zombies and medical equipment mixed in with cabbage roses and gingham! :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. You've NEVER heard of a mood board .... are you sure you're gay!!

    After reading the comment above mine I have a vision of bunting stretched across the village hall made from Winifred's knickers interspersed with fairy lights :-)
