Cheap Favours!!!!

I hadn't put much thought into Wedding Favours before.

I've yet to go to a wedding where I've got something that you really want to keep anyway and so we had sort of decided we weren't going to have any.

Then I bought a wedding magazine and saw a favour I loved - but at £3.50 each and 50 guests that was a no go. I suddenly thought - hang on what if I make them.

So I bought the various bits from ebay - cinnemon sticks and ivory antique lace with a little heart charm. You know I even found the exact heart charm like the one online - from Mexico. I got a bag of 80 for £1. I even had to ring Matt with excitement when I ordered them. Granted he wasn't as excited as me but he still acted happy, bless him.

I sat in the garden yesterday in the sun making them, and I've got to say I was pretty happy with my work. It just goes to show though that you can get a bargain - I might even start making them for other peoples weddings!! At least it will keep me busy when the wedding is over and I've got all this spare time to fill.

If you have any tips or ideas for favours - then get in touch

I'm off to buy more magazines now to see what else I can make.

The Hen Party!!!!

It's time to book the Hen Party!!!

In true Chelsea Norris style I have been unable to let go and have mostly arranged this myself. Although I have now given my mates the details so they can organise a few surprises, but 'Willy Straws' are an absolute no no!

Having been on many girly holidays in the past I feel I've sort of done that, so instead I opted for a lovely spa weekend. You know dressing gowns, nice meals, champagne and treatments. The way I found this particular spa was so funny. Firstly I mentioned I was looking for somewhere on air, and loads of listeners told me to look at Titanic Spa in Huddersfield. Then I found out Mr Dane Bowers was staying there - so I tweeted him and he honestly gave me very good reviews of the place, the rooms and the treatments so I'm all booked in!!!

It's the UK's first Eco spa in West Yorkshire set in an old textile mill - built in the same year as The Titanic ship. (hence the name) There's a fantastic spa with amazing treatments like hydrotherapy and alternative treatments - a pool, sauna and steam rooms.

The rooms are amazing too - and I just can't wait.

If you've ever been please let me know about it and if you'd like to go and have any questions then email me at

Matt by the way has also opted for a nice relaxing Amsterdam!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Once again I tried to organsie that toto- but ducked out when I read about Dinner Lesbian Shows. Ha!!!!

Speak soon,

Saddleworth Wedding Venue!

I've already booked my wedding venue - but if I was going to get married in this Country - it would be at the the place I discovered at the weekend. It's also just a lovely hotel too so if you're looking for a romantic night away, then check it out!

All this week on the Breakfast show - we are giving away a chance to 'Win a Wedding'. The venue is the Saddleworth Hotel in Delph, Oldham. So I stayed there at the weekend and I did the thing everyone does when they get into a nice room in a hotel - you take pictures!

This was our room which was just lovely, with a little lounge with great views of the terrace and the woods. We had the most amazing meal - and it's all made on the premises with just one chef. The whole place is run by a family, Anthony and his son Scott, Danielle and Jake and they just love it. Anything they can do to make your stay enjoyable they will.

If you have any questions about the place, let me know at
