My Wedding - Two Months To Go {eeek!}

Last weekend we went to Provence for the final time before our wedding. For the whole week ahead, my brain was fizzing with ideas and hopes and fears, and all the decisions we had to make. And now we're back, and it's Wednesday, and my brain is still fizzing, but in a good way! I don't think I've ever made so many expensive decisions in such a short amount of time. The good news is the following.....

{Our Provence Wedding Planner}
Kerry Brackan. We love her. She's amazing and she's saved our lives. If you're planning a wedding in Provence or on the Cote d'Azur, contact her at My Riviera Wedding and beg her to become your planner. She's busy though, so you'll have to get in there soon! Kerry helped us with every single step of the big decisions. She knows how many glasses of wine your guests are likely to drink at your wedding, she knows how much space 13 round tables need, she thinks of things like power sockets, and catering tents and what to do when it rains. Plus a million other things you don't know that you don't know, but you need to know for your wedding. If you know what I mean.....{bit lost now}.

{Our French Wedding Caterer}
We had a proper tasting session at the Head Office of our caterer Marrou in Marseille. It's a family-run business, and the Head Chef cooked us four starters and two main courses so we could choose what we wanted at our wedding. The food was incredible, and absolutely reminded us why we want to get married in France. Plus Marrou will organise all the tables, chairs, cutlery, crockery, etc, etc, all the way to how we want our napkins tied with a sprig of olive leaves. Fantastique - non?

{Our Provence Wedding Venue}
Is gorgeous. We booked it over a year ago, and I'd forgotten what it looked like. The good news is that it's better than I recalled. Our invitations have gone out now, and I'm sure most of our guests have googled our venue, so here's the first sneak-peak pictures. Do get in touch if you'd like the name of the Ch√Ęteau.

{Our French Wedding Flowers}
We met Stephane of Stephane Fleuriste in Puyricard for the first time on Saturday, and my thoughts on flowers were pretty jumbled. The problem with writing a wedding blog is you see too many incredible images. Then if you throw in the budget issue, you can find yourself stuck in a bind. Stephane was incredibly patient and enthusiastic, and between us all, we came up with a plan. I'm keeping to all white blooms, and fingers crossed, it should look fab. If you've got an appointment with a florist coming up, I'd recommend collecting lots of pictures together. It makes a huge difference.
