So how to rock a non white wedding? Well, just like Beverley and David did!

The Missing Sock
Beverley and David had a small wedding filled with lots of love, happy relatives, great friends and a right pinch of quirkiness provided by choice of the venue -
The Missing Sock near Cambridge (which I recommend to check out). This tied in so well with Beverley's non-white choice of wedding dresses.
Though by accident the groom learned of the before secret appearance of the wedding dress a bit sooner than it was planned. At our
pre-wedding meeting, among other questions I asked if the dress is traditional white. Beverley automatically replied "No, blue" then looked at David
and clasped her mouth in exasperation. He was not meant to know that just yet. I could not help but start laughing and as Beverly and David are most lovely
and relaxed couple, they laughed too.
The wedding might have been small but Beverley and David have big hearts (could but not notice by the way their friends talked about them) and had
put a lot of thought and detail into it. They were not interested in the big and traditional but more in homely, friendly, warm and welcoming.
This reflected in all the little touches starting with home baked wedding cake, through to the decoration and food, finishing with a social game
to play for all their guests.
For their guests they prepared a small social game to play called "Find the missing sock", I hope you noticed the obvious link to the venue,
The Missing Sock restaurant, where the Sunday wedding party took place. The object of the game was to find a person with a missing sock from the pair.
Every guest got one sock with instructions and description of the person with the other matching sock and some questions to ask.
I thought it worked very well. At the start a bit unsure and stranger guests ended up chatting heartily and possibly finding a new friend as
Beverley and David made sure that they were matching people of similar interests and personalities.
And how does the snow and end of March go together? Well they don't, but it snowed nevertheless both
days. So we ended up having a Winter wedding in Spring. As I said, Beverley and
David are not the ones for the traditional.
