The Wedding Planner

To all who supported me in planning Raoul's and Hannah's wedding a BIG thank you. I couldn't have done it without you guys.

To be honest, I brought it on myself, when I asked all of you to pitch in, but I did not anticipate all the extra sewing way back in April. Also, come to think of it, I now know where to hire table cloths for much less than the usual price, where to have flowers done (thank you Lehane and mom), what the buttonhole pins cost (to pin the flowers to lapels) and that simple is often more effective than a big hoohaa. Thanks also to all the Wartons who wave pitched in with cleaning up without asking or having to be asked. You guys are the best!

Oh, yes, the correct boning arrived two weeks after the last post, and I could use it in Hannah's dress after all.
I don't know how much she could breathe, but she survived the day and now can relax on her honeymoon - breathe in all the air she can.She looked absolutely gorgeous - thanks to Enno and her magic wand :) and Talitha and Gigi with the magic brushes.

As a "note to self", should the day come when some guy thinks I'm the ONE, I definitely will HIRE a wedding planner, or delegate to friends muhahahaha. I don't know how any of my friends whom I've seen getting married managed without one - that is all except Frank, who of course just knows how to organise things in the first place.....

The day was just right as well, with the sun shining and the wind blowing and the birds singing...

Thanks be to God for His provision as well in everything, from hairclips to food, and especially Visas. He definitely had a hand in organising. I couldn't have done any of it without His help, and I'm sure that many of you would agree.

Well done you!

Planning a wedding is a SERIOUS job - not for the faint hearted, definitely! Sounds like you did a marvelous job taking the party on, as well as being responsible for the brides' dream dress :-) Would love to see some photos of the finished product... I will have to scour facebook, I think...
