Dream Valley Challenge 29 - Wedding/Love

Well, this is it! Today is the day!!! I'm not actually really here..... Really I'm at the hotel having a last minute flap before I get married in about 2 hours time :-) Eeeeeek! :-)

And that is why the lovely girls over at Dream Valley have set our latest challenge to be


Aren't they sweet??? :-)

I thought for this project I'd show you something I've been working on for our big day..... This is our Wishing Well!

For those of you not familiar with the idea, a wishing well can be used as an alternative to wedding presents from your guests. Paul and I have been together for 8 years so we don't have the need for traditional wedding presents like towels and things so to save everyone trying to hunt round for something we might need, instead we invite them to make a wish for us and put it in our wishing well!

This is what it looked like when we first bought it:

We gave it a coat of white paint and I went on a shopping trip with my good pal, Yvonne, to buy some artificial roses and ivy....

There are larger roses at the bottom, across the front....

Leading up to smaller roses and rose buds up the side.....

I filled the bucket with more rose buds and ivy and lined the inside of the well with a pillow case so that our wishes don't fall out the bottom :-)

The poem on the roof.....

I hope you like it! Now wish me luck cos I expect I'll be really nervous right about now :-)

I'll be back when I'm Mrs Byron!!!!

Love 'n' hugs,
