    Finally.. after nearly 11 years together my daughter and her partner have tied the knot. They wanted a very informal, no fuss wedding so it was arranged to be at my house and garden with a rock and roll theme. As she walked out with her father to the sounds of Elvis singing 'cant help falling in love with you' there wasnt a dry eye in the house.

    It was very low key but everyone had a great day including Murphy who has managed very well with all the strangers in his house and he has enjoyed cleaning up all the crumbs they left behind! I just did the planning, the cooking, the decorating, the music and the photos......:confused:

    Oh wow, I've just spotted her blue petticoat! Gorgeous!

    Many congratulations. And how refreshing that the lovely couple realise that you don't need to spend £27,000 or whatever the average is now. Their wedding will have been every bit as special and wonderful - maybe more so, in fact:)

    @JudyN ..I hear you about costs but they are both so down to earth they wanted a simple ceremony and I think in total we only spent about £500...My OH gave her partner his wedding ring so its old but its 18crt gold and we felt it was a good way to welcome him into the family. We downloaded music from internet and ripped cd's onto a usb which played for 4 hours all rock and roll oldies.. I baked the cake , the dress was from Lindy bop for £18 and I did the photos and made the food, simple sausage rolls, mini quiche, mini wraps with cream cheese and ham etc nothing posh but all done with love.. Today Im working on the slide show.. Oh and of course the vicar was cheap because its my eldest son.. their wedding date is 05-8 which just happens to be the dialing code for our town too so they were really chuffed with that.
