We hope you are all doing fabulously! Apologies for the lack of posts of late, we've been super busy at our sister site, The Geek Side, with new products arriving nearly every day in preparation for the Harry Potter party in July!
This blog is to celebrate the marriage of Sarah and Andrew Frost who got married on Saturday 25th May, at the stunning Shireburn Arms.
So without further ado, let's jump straight in!
How did you meet? "We met through friends whilst out for somebody's birthday although it took Andrew a few months after to ask me on a date!" How did he propose? Or did you take the plunge? "Andrew proposed to me on stage at the Comedy Store in Manchester in front of a full crowd! It was one of the most nerve-wracking experiences of my life but so meaningful as this was where we had our first date!" Tell us about planning your wedding… "I really enjoyed the planning, I quite like being creative so the wedding gave me an excuse to come up with lots of fun ideas for the day. We were quite calm and organised and the only thing that got a bit heated was trying to figure out the table plan!"
What were you most excited about? "We were both so excited just to have everyone we love together in one room and knowing they were there for us! Our families and friends are fun-loving so we knew it would be a really great day!" Did you trust your other half with any of the planning? "Hmm, Andrew asked me part way through planning if he could have Burnley FC players names for our tables and claret and blue ribbon on our wedding car. The table names I was fine with, the ribbons were a big no! He did help out with other bits but it was mainly me coming up with ideas and him agreeing haha!" What was your theme? "Blush pink and Floral." How did Zoe incorporate this theme in to your stationery? "She incorporated the theme perfectly, she could not have done a better job!" What was your experience with Zoe like, as a designer? "Great! Zoe is friendly and so helpful. We messaged a lot via Facebook to go over designs and amendments. She was always on hand when I needed her!" How did you feel when you saw the finished designs? "The designs exceeded my expectations and I couldn't be happier with what Zoe created!" How many bridesmaids and groomsmen did you have? "We had 4 bridesmaids and 4 groomsmen including the best man."
Tell us about the big day itself… "Our day was AMAZING!! From start to finish it was so fun! We had a wedding singer who had guests up and dancing before the main course was served and then we were doing a conga in between main and dessert! So many people said it was the most fun wedding they had been to! There was so much love and happiness all day! We wish we could do it all over again!" What was the easiest thing about planning your wedding? "I would say getting my bridesmaids dresses was really easy! We went to one place and were in and out within an hour with all 4 dresses tried on, chosen and paid for!
"I'd also have to say ordering the stationery, Zoe did everything, all I had to do was give her the wording and a brief idea of what I wanted!" …and the hardest? "I think this would probably be arranging all the payments to suppliers as the wedding got closer. Luckily Andrew is obsessed with spreadsheets so he had it pretty much covered!" Did your guests like your stationery? "Yes! We had so many compliments on our invitations!"
Did you get any particularly positive feedback for your theme and design? "A lot of people commented on the laser cut card that was on the outside of the invitation and the floral design inside." Where are you planning to go on your honeymoon? "We are going to Barbados for 2 weeks at the end of June. We can't wait to relax after all the excitement of our big day!" Would you recommend LMSB to friends and family? "100%, I will be telling everyone about LMSB!"
What a review! Thank you so much to Sarah and Andrew your wonderful feedback and for letting us be a part of creating your perfect day.
It just goes to show you have a vision in mind, we can create it - who thought flowers and football went together so well? If you have a vision in mind, tell us.We will always do our very best to incorporate this into your theme.
We'll see you soon for another real wedding blog!
