I have 3 friends getting married this year...so far. I've been frantically searching on ebay for an outfit for one in April and found a few Anthropologie beauties that I would love to wear but I'm nervous in case the post from the States is delayed ( I waited 7 weeks for my last U.S. parcel to arrive).
Weddings are such personal affairs and all 3 girls are approaching their weddings in vastly different ways, from the I refuse to be pressured by the commercialised wedding industry and doing it completely homemade and hands on, to I want a big fairytale wedding.
My husband and I paid for our own wedding, I had my dresses made, we hired suits we borrowed a friends car, another friend made the cake and another friend did our photos (we were his 1st wedding) Our reception was largish (100) but we had it in the local pub down the road. It wasn't magazine worthy and it was the eighties (need I say more) but it is still one of the best days of my life.
Thanks to Pinterest we can visually shop and plan and be inspired by the thousands of beautiful wedding themes and pictures.. I helped one friend set up her Pinterest account just for the wedding!! But at the end of the day it's still just 2 people saying I'll love you forever until death do us part (yes, I had traditional vows) and that's all that really matters.
This week inspired by weddings I created a new line of Wedding Ring Keepers and Ring Dishes.
I would love to hear your wedding stories.
