5 weeks to go...Stationery: 'Oh Happy Day'

It is 5 weeks until our big day and I am hoping to blog each week about our plans and inspirations! 

I will getting married to the boy I met in the first year of university over 4 years ago. We will be wed in the village church across the road, followed by celebrations at the village hall. We have planned the day to be a very relaxed affair with a village fete theme, full of d.i.y details and a very small budget to boot! 

We started planning the day back in April 2012 when Harry proposed after we moved into our first flat. To be honest we have been very laid back with the whole 'wedding planning' thing and everything (so far) has been quite straight forward.  We picked a date, booked up the church, village hall, photographer, hire of equipment and caterers all very early on last year. We then set about putting a guest list together in order to send out our save the date cards. (The exciting creative bit!)

The research and inspiration started almost immediately, one word...Pinterest! I am sure you have all heard of Pinterest but for those of you that haven't, Pinterest is a virtual pin board where you can save and group together ideas and images for any occasion or theme. It has been my best friend throughout the whole time and id say it is a definite must when planning your wedding. You can also create secret boards so your wedding plans are kept a secret! 

You can follow me and view my boards here: 

We have decided on a theme of a yellow, village fete, mismatched day full of fun d.i.y details and we wanted our invitations to reflect this.

So here they are, our save the dates and invitations, designed by myself and lovingly hand assembled by the Fiancee! 

'Oh Happy Day!'
