03.04.10 Our Day by Design: Evening Guests Arrival

While the hotel were changing the room around for the evening, and the band were setting up on the stage, everyone moved into the bar area, and we were able to greet some of our evening guests who had arrived. Some of our day guests had brought the school photo with them and everyone was still trying to guess which ones were us!

Some people signed the guest book, Grahams dad bought a massive round of drinks at the bar {which I seemed to miss} and our flowergirl Georgia put on her bridesmaid boppers from the hen night that she had brought with her! There was a famous football team staying in the hotel that night too so some of our guests went to find their favourite players and get photos taken with them!

Since Grahams aunt & uncle had missed the family photo earlier, we got that side of the family together quickly and took a few photos, although for some reason Grahams parents or sister werent there. I also wanted to get one of me and my mum and dad too. No idea why we didnt think to go and get my sister Ashleigh for these photos as the only photo we didnt get during the day was one of just me & Ashleigh, which we will have to make sure we get at her wedding in December instead!

L-R: Me & my parents; Grahams family

Then me & Ashleigh went up to her room so that she could bustle up my train and I could take my bolero off for the evening. My veil had already come off before dinner. When we came back down the ballroom was ready for everyone to go back inside and find a seat. There was a bit of confusion trying to find the manager to get the evening reception started, but once he was back we were all ready to go.

Then it was time to cut the cake...

  1. I love the bridesmaid boppers! :) Can't wait to see the next set of photos from your cake cutting.

  2. I couldn't believe it when the evening guests started to arrive. Time seemed to fly up to that point.

  3. I can't wait to see your cake cutting! And we too forgot to get some key family members in our formal pictures. So easy to forget on your big day!
