Since our lights are strung, our trees aglow with baubles and bows, our bank accounts looking skint in direct contrast with our waistlines destined to bloat, as is the natural way of things in the season of cheer and , it’s time for me to say Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.
It’s been a wonderful year sharing in your wedding planning joy, however this time of year I’m going to bring things back to basics and wish you some good old fashioned Christmas cheer. So my lovely brides, these are my most wished-for wishes just for you…
I wish you days in the sunshine, sand between your toes, salt in your hair and the odd bit of water up your nose.
I wish you many Mimosas and naughty iced teas, Pimms and prawns, and platters of cheese.
I wish all your presents are the best of the lot, and all around wonder where your gift of gift-giving was got.
When it’s time on The Eve to close your eyes, I wish you best-laid plans to swipe the last mince pies.
When you wake your stocking I wish will house treats – delicates, trinkets and delicious sweet eats.
I wish after lunch when all take a snooze, that yours is the couch spot most people would choose.
If there’s kids in your house to whom Santa brings toys, I wish they’re assembled and don’t make much noise.
I wish you a pool or a beach or a hose, a sprinkler will do – in fact, go buy one of those.
I wish you all of the Christmassy tunes, walks at twilight and a cheeky kiss in the dunes.
When all is quiet, the cheer is all had, I most wish you feelings of grateful and glad.
It’s the very season that’s my favourite you see, so I wish you love, happiness and a real pretty tree.
Lots of love from Sally and Jenny xo
