Lauren & Lawrence's big day

Congratulations to Lauren & Lawrence, who tied the knot 
in fabulous style in Reutlingen, Germany, on 25 May 2012.

As a wedding gift I made table bunting and other decorations for their marquee.
The colours were taken from the dresses of each of the seven bridesmaids. 
The decorations got many compliments and were well suited to the personalities of the happy couple.

More photos of the Mr&Mrs banner are here.

The table bunting was a real success and really added to the party atmosphere. 
I also made extra bunting for the entrance, bar, cake table, etc.

I made table numbers from a simple paper cylinder design, displaying an elaborate 
cut-out number. Although the 13 table stands took about 5 hours to complete, it was worth the effort as they looked really great.

Inspired by the Tatty Devine SeƱorita Fan idea, I made paper fans to hang in the windows. They also made fun dancing props for guests later in the night.


I made colourful tags for a 'Wish Tree', where guests could write a wish for the newly weds (in English or German) and tie it to the tree. 
Some really lovely messages were passed on.

And finally, after making all this bunting, I couldn't resist buying the Tatty Devine Brights bunting necklace for Lauren. Perfect gift to round off the theme. 

Thanks to Lou May for the professional photographs!

Finishing touches…

On the 8:15 train from Stuttgart to Reutlingen, just hours before the wedding service, I was sewing blue bows on my shoes to complete my outfit. The finishing touch for myself, along side my DIY table decorations.
