Wedding planning – Flowers

Eeeks, Ms Baked By Me will be Mrs Baked By Me in less than 2 weeks. Feels like I have just announced our engagement. Cannot believe the big day is nearly here. Panic time! Oh yes, Baked By Me – wise  quick quick get your orders in, we will have to close for the wedding as well as a short cheeky honeymoon. Yes, we will be open when payday arrives and  we close on the 3rd of July 12pm. We will be processing all orders on the 20th of July. Thank you for your understanding. 

Lots of you on our Facebook and Twitter pages wanted more info about bits and bobs about the wedding, planning, etc. So here goes! The first post about my crazy wedding flowers!

Why crazy? Last week, I received a surprising phone call from my wedding florist administrators! Seems our chosen florist went into administration. Our order will not be honoured and looks like we will not be able to claim our deposit back. Thankfully, we did not pay very much up front. This was not great news at all since am an ‘anything goes’ sort of Bride. The thought of having to start again and choose the bridal bouquet and decorations from scratch made me shudder.

Asked for lots of recommendations and Secret Garden in Jesmond, Newcastle came highly recommended.

Off I went with a little print out of my ‘inspiration’ …

Wildflower Bridal Bouquet

No proper colour schemes, all I wanted was a rustic wildflower sort of look and feel. From the moment I stepped in Secret Garden, everything was just beautiful.

Had a little wedding consultation with Terri. She was helpful and lovely. Love that she was very frank as well as I believe my taste can be questionable? Haha!

Wedding flowers can now be checked off the list. Woohoo! Had a very enjoyable time as well. Fingers crossed, they will be very very very pretty. Will get to peek at them the day before the wedding! Will pen off with a wonderful wedding arrangement done by Secret Garden, Jesmond.

Hello everyone! Just got back from a short break and love love love all the pictures, messages and emails you send us 🙂 I missed you too.

Will share a very sweet email with you:

Hi,

Just wanted to give you a big Thank you, for the brilliant moulds and top class service getting them to me.
I did the chocolate tea cakes in them, as soon as they arrived today. THEY WERE AMAZING !
The moulds were perfect and my family and friends were delighted with the results.
Loved the little Enjoy and X on the label too, it is a lovely warm touch and I really appreciated it.
Thanks again and I will certainly be back to you in the future.
