Very lazy Sunday.......

As I mentioned we were at a wedding on Saturday for one of dh's co-workers.  This fine young man we have known for many years and his wife is a lovely woman.  They were so happy and so in love it was a joy to see them.

Here are a few photos from the day/night.

It was a Catholic ceremony and the stained glass windows were gorgeous.

They were all the same wheat but different colours.
This is where the wedding party sat, it was lovely.  There were seven bridesmaids, seven groomsmen, two flower girls and a ring boy.  That's the biggest wedding party I have seen.
The centre piece on our table.  I won ours but forgot it.  Dh will pick it up today at the office for me.
 The wedding favour was a jar of honey, again I forgot it, so dh will also get that at the same time.
 The cake it was so pretty.  The colours were pink and white.  The guys wore navy blue suits with pink ties.  The bridesmaids wore pale pink strapless ruched dresses.
This is the most unique dessert I have ever seen.  They are ice cream.  The banana tasted of banana, the grapes tasted like grape flavoured bubble gum.  The apples were vanilla and the red covering was white chocolate.  I had the orange/peach and it tasted like Creamiscle ice cream.  They were so good.

I did do one thing on Sunday and that was do the menu plan for the week.

I love the Honey favor...so cute!
Too bad you didn't include a pic of you and hubby. Tell me how that menu plan works out for you.

How lovely! Everything looks so nice. I haven't been to a wedding in years but we have one coming up in May that I'm looking forward to.

Such a lovely wedding, Gill. When I got married it was all very traditional and standard, but these days everything is so much more personalised, with wedding favours, incredibly styled cakes, and oh! my ~ those frozen dessert fruits! Something else entirely.
I often wonder, with everything that is available these days, how I'd create my own Special Day again. I'd never be able to decide!

Lovely wedding! It just occurred to me that I am happy not to be asked to wear bridesmaid dresses any more, LOL! Those ice cream fruit look delicious, like giant marzipan!

The stain glass windows are quite gorgeous. They'd make good designs for scarves. Shame you can't knit those designs. The ice cream! Oh those e numbers! Bet it was tasty though.

That IS a gorgeous cake! Lazy Sundays are good Sundays. Come to think of it, I like lazy Mondays, too! Have a great one, Gill.

I have been catching up on your blog...we ended up not getting Lorelei till tomorrow, but still am not trying to blog. Just popped in to see what all you were up to. That must have been a really beautiful wedding.

I read all the posts...just not commenting on them all. But will say the food plates in the post above looks simply delicious!
