A Surprise Proposal

I love looking through wedding blogs and i came across this post on www.theknottybride.com and thought it was lovely. Fantastic seeing the look on her face when she realises.

A SURPRISE PROPOSAL STORY | A vintage lace dress, glittery gold shoes, and one of the smartest, budget-friendly proposal ideas I’ve ever seen.

The lovely and talented Michelle March of Michelle March Photography submitted this gem of an event, and I’m pretty sure it’s the perfect way to kick off the reinstatement of this series, OMG STYLE.  Aaaaaaaaaas well as a great way to, once again, send an unwelcomed pulse out across the world wide web saying, Beat This, Proposers Everywhere.  That’s an unfortunate side effect of these stellar, well-thought-out and deeply meaningful proposal stories, as they seem to set a new standard.  But whatever.  I’m still featuring it.  Because it’s not just the beautiful proposal that impresses me you guys.  It’s the creative ingenuity of bringing this couple to Paris, without the cost.  And to me, it’s just as good, if not remarkably better.

I love how you can tell in her face, the precise moment when she seems to sense that SOMETHING IS UP IN DISNEY WORLD.  And it’s not the priest’s funny bone from that marriage ceremony scene in The Little Mermaid.  (You guys know about that, right?  If not, I’m happy and just a little bit frightened to elaborate… let me know.  Because omgitishilar.)

Ok, here’s the (total must read) lowdown from Michelle on how this magical day was planned and how it unfolded:

What started off as a romantic session of a boy and a girl {Marian and Steven} that have been in love for seven years ended {or really began!} in their engagement at the gorgeous France Pavilion at the Epcot Center {Walt Disney World}. Steven {her now fiancé}, Ivelisse {her best friend and a close friend of mine} and I planned the surprise {and very emotional} proposal. Marian is in love with all things vintage. She dreams of Paris and is a hopeless romantic. The next best thing to actually proposing in Paris was their very own backyard… Walt Disney World. After all, this is where dreams come true! When it was time to head over to the France Pavilion, Marian changed into the most beautiful, vintage lace dress I’ve ever seen. Her glittery gold shoes, ivory gloves and a handmade hair piece turned her into a princess. In fact, she was stopped several times by little girls wanting to say hello. The entire time we shot in France, I was looking for the perfect spot and when I found it, I gave Steven the green light. Green light = I had to say how much I could use some gelato right now. Yummy! Meanwhile, Ivelisse was texting me like crazy hoping to get an update from me. Haha! The rest, as they say, is history… A crowd gathered to watch Steven propose to Marian. Everyone cheered! She cried! It was straight out of a movie. It couldn’t have been more perfect. The wonderful people from the shops in the France Pavilion rushed out with tissues and a button that said, “Just Engaged”. They offered the couple special access in the Italy Pavilion to watch the fireworks above the crowds in a private balcony. So romantic!

So romantic indeed, Michelle.  So romantic, indeed.

Wedding Table and Seating Plans

We are at that time of year where our diary is mostly booked up with ‘on the day stationery’ for couples like Menu’s, Place Cards, Guest Books and Wedding table plans to name a few of the items.

Table Plans are one of the most popular items that couples order from us, usually matching the design they chose for their wedding invitations. For most weddings they are an essential piece of stationery as they make sure everyone knows where they are sitting and who with. It is the first thing your guests will see before they enter your reception room and our seating plans can make sure they get a great first impression.

All of our wedding invitation designs are available as a matching table plan and we make them in your chosen colour scheme, card colour and font. We have table plans which are classic with bows and swarovksi crystals, Vintage wedding themes with lace and pearls, Butterfly table plans with crystal or feather butterflies and table plans perfectly suited for a winter wedding with crystal snowflakes or Holly.

Our wedding table plans are completed on white boxed canvas and are A1 or A2 in size depending on the size of the plan ordered. We complete the tables in white, ivory or cream card and in your chosen font and colour scheme. Mountboards are available on request.

We have three price brackets for our table plans with a small table plan (up to 8 tables plus top table), a large table plan (up to 14 tables plus top table) and an extra large table plan (up to 20 tables plus top table). Prices vary from £70 – £105.00 depending on the design you choose. A full price list is available on each design page.

To view some of our past work visit our Flickr gallery where we have around 150 pictures of previous table plans we have made, along with all other completed orders. Visit our stationery page to view all the designs available for your table plan.
