M is for ...

Music - I knew instantly what 2 songs I wanted. Jeff's song for us is Some Kind of Wonderful by The Drifters which I happily adopted for years. However as soon as I heard A Thousand Years by Christina Perri, lyrics and tune, that was it! So that's been my song for us since. There will be tears when it's played. But I have to say John Legend's new one gives me chills! And as mentioned under 'D' Joshua, who's taste in music is as wide and eclectic as mine, will be providing all the tunes :)
Mood Book / Board/ Scrapbook - Somewhere to put your thoughts, ideas, cuttings from magazines, web addresses, contacts, etc. Just a cheap one from Poundland will work. Here are mine - one's all pretty, stamped and doodled in, the one that I've had on display throughout the A-Z. And the other's the day-to-day planner with all my scribblings and notes. The plan is at the end to transfer the notes into the pretty book, as well as all the A-Z posts - which should create one awesome memento of the lead-up to the do.
Manzanite Trees - I love these. You can dress them blinging - vintage - country - or whatever theme takes you :)
Menu - We've booked a fish and chip van for the Friday night and everyone's buying their own. Saturday night is a buffet and Sunday night a cooked meal. And yes, catering for ourselves :) Don't even want to think how much it would have cost to pay caterers!

  1. I would think that the food part of the planning is the hardest or most challenging part of this event. Although you can't go wrong with fish & chips!

  5. My husband's family are very musical but mine isn't. I wanted to learn piano as a kid but never got the chance.

    1. Me neither Kimberley, we had a piano in one of our school halls, and playing chopsticks was the closest I ever got to having lessons! I can read music scores, but it would be very slow renditions LOL! xx

  6. Fish and chip van? Like one of those food trucks? That will be cool.

    1. Hi Alex, yes,exactly! We looked at the nearest fish and chip shop - 15 mins drive - and picking up 60 portions for everyone. But the van serves for 2 hours so allows for latecomers :) and it'll be piping hot :) x
