A good thing about being a designer is that when it comes to designing all the little bits for your wedding you can do it yourself!
A terrible thing about being a designer is that when it comes to designing all the little bits for your wedding you will do it yourself, be incredibly critical of the output, and trying to find the point where you STOP designing little bits that no one will notice or care about. This especially includes the groom who will have talk you down from ordering custom made name charms for wine glasses ("Yes darling, they are super cute, and they do double as wedding favours. The venue is giving us free name cards though, and also no one will care!")
For peace of mind, and the sake of my imminent marriage, I managed to get 1000 small stickers made (with our little bride and groom 'logo') that will now work as designer valium when I think something should be more in line with the theme. For a total price of £20 I avoid Future Mr. Utopia going bonkers. Pretty sweet deal. Also, I love love love the stickers!
