A bride had to queue in her dress at a Lidl checkout to buy wedding flowers - after she forget her bouquet

 

It’s been months in the planning, from the dress, suits, venue, limo - your wedding day is finally here and you are all set to tie the knot.

Except for one bride, there was one last thing she needed to do before saying “I do”. . . Glide down a different sort of aisle at the supermarket for last minute bits - her own wedding flowers to be exact.

On Saturday, Helen Evenden was in the back of a luxury limo half way from her home in Llanybydder on the way to the register office in Carmarthen to marry her fiancée Jason, when it dawned upon her that they had not put the wedding flowers in the car.

But instead of panicking or becoming a blubbering mess, Helen decided to carry on to Carmarthen.

She said: “I asked my sister if she had put the flowers in the boot but she hadn’t - they were still at my house in Llanybydder.

“I didn’t panic, we were going through Alltwalis, half way to Carmarthen and decided to carried on.

“When we got there, the register office said we were a little bit early and told us to go for a spin around town.”

It was then that her dad Paul Draycott suggested calling into the town’s Lidl supermarket to see if they had flowers for the ceremony.

Helen said: “Dad said, let’s go to Lidl. I thought we might as well, seeing as we had time before the wedding.

“In I went to Lidl in my wedding dress and with my purse, got three lots of white roses for £7.”

One bunch was for her and the other two for her nieces Sioned, 16 and Arwen 13, who were bridesmaids.

Helen added: “We parked in the Lidl car park in this big limo, this was around 9.30am and one customer even asked me ‘are you for real?’ when I went to the till to pay for the flowers.”

The sight of a bride-to-be in her gown going through the checkout armed with her own flowers raised a few eyebrows and chuckles from shoppers and staff alike said Helen.

She added: “One staff member even asked to take a photo of me at

the till, it was a little unusual I suppose,” she laughed.

Thankfully, it was plain sailing after the shopping trip and Helen, 39, married Jason, 31, before a reception at the Black Lion Hotel in Llanybydder with their daughters Soffia, aged five and Efa aged two - along with friends and family.

Helen was even re-united with her wedding bouquet for the reception.

Her mother Betty quipped: “I thought it was rather funny she had one bouquet for the registry wedding and called back in the house for the proper one for the wedding reception.”

Speaking from the home she shares with Jason and their daughters in Heol Y Dderi, Helen said: “We haven’t got a honeymoon planned, just a nice chilled out week at home.”
