Zoe & James Wedding Feedback

Zoe & James got married back in July, here’s a sneak peek of there lovely wedding day at The Mill Hotel, Alveley

Q As a newly married couple, what would be the best advice you would give to a couple just starting out on their wedding planning journey?

A We would certainly recommend having a video photographer to a couple who are planning because since looking back at what was recorded there were things which we weren’t able to see and take in. It is also a special memory that will be treasure forever of the family and friends who attended our special day.

Q What is the best memory you have from your wedding day?

A It is so hard to pick a favorite memory as from the moment I woke up to see sunshine and blue sky to dancing the night away in to the early hours the day was so perfect and just how we wanted and imagined it to be.

Q Why did you decide you wanted a video recording of your wedding day?

A We felt it was important as we wanted to cherish memories of family who wont be with us forever.

Q. What memories did the video provide which your photographs didn’t capture?

A You captured the whole service for us and family and friends arriving and captured the reactions of friends and family during the speeches. It’s very much reliving the day.

Q. Why did you choose The Finishing Touch?

A. After looking at other samples from other companies we found the style of yours was the one we liked the most. Pam was also very helpful at the wedding fayre at the Mill and we knew you had worked at The Mill before and with our photographer.

Q. Would you recommend Finishing Touch?

A. We would definately recommend you both.Your service was fantastic and we couldn’t of asked for anything better.

Q. Why did you choose the Mill Hotel for your Reception?

A. Perfect setting for a perfect day due to the lovely grounds.

DIY Wedding Programs from Burlap and Vintage Patterned Paper

Jennifer from Memento Designs made these gorgeous DIY wedding programs for her garden wedding (they would also be perfect for a rustic wedding or a vintage wedding) and she’s agreed to share the project details with IW readers. The project does involve sewing, but if you are not the sewing type – don’t fret! Simply assemble the programs and find a seamstress in your area to stitch them up for you!

Materials for DIY Wedding Programs

Instructions for DIY Wedding Programs
The main elements for these DIY programs are burlap and decorative card stock. The programs are three pages, front and back, not including the front and back cover. Dimensions are 5.5″ x 8.5″.
Jennifer designed her programs in MS word. She printed two pages per sheet, and made them two sided (text on front and back.) By printing two pages per sheet she saved paper and reduced the overall cost of the project.
