They’re experts in their field and ours really did make our day amazing in so many ways. Without the incredible suppliers we had, we never would have been able to pull off the venue change in less than a week. The most talked about aspect of the day was the wicker basket full of slippers meant for the girls to be able to take their heels off in the evening and carry on dancing. By 8pm the box was empty and everyone, including some of the men, was wearing them! I spent the morning waiting to feel nervous but it never happened! With the chaos of the week before I was just relieved and excited that we were finally getting married. The whole day exceeded my expectations from start to finish – it really was the best day of my life. 48
