Thursday Treats: 14th June 2012 – Pleeeease Vote for me?!

I’m not one to beg but… Who am I kidding? Yes I am! But why the begging today you ask? Well last week I had a rather exciting letter through my door informing me that I’d be nominated for a Perfect Wedding Award! Now I know awards are not the be all and end all… but hell, I’m not gonna lie, I really want a shiny trophy to put on my mantelpiece!

To vote for me and a plethora of other UK suppliers in the awards, simply click the button below. Voting is opening until 6th August 2012 and the winners will be announced in the magazine out on 5th September… Plus there’s even a fancy awards dinner…and I like dinner…and awards… (OK promise I’ll shut up now!)

I’ll stop being irritating now and get on with Thursday Treats. Oooh the internet has been good this week!

    Interesting article about the bride wearing her mum’s/grandma’s dress- I’ll be wearing my mum’s dress when I get married in August. It’s a bargain at the cost of a dry clean, really nice to have that continuity, and amazing how it fits perfectly, too. My mum had it tailor made in Eastern Germany in the 70s. And no, it doesn’t look like Kate’s 😉
    There is something nice about having your own dress as well, so for the evening I’ve bought a 1930s dress (a flea market find). I have to say, having read a number of your recent articles I am mighty glad I never even set foot in a bridal boutique.
    Anyone else wearing their mum’s dress? (or their nan’s?)

  2. i really love the bride in her mum and grandmas dress… i wish i could be as tiny as my mum AND grandma on my wedding day so i could wear either of their dresses, but i was blessed with curves hahaha!

    i also loved seeing the owl and the pussycat themed ideas… so cute!

    well . . .i cant decide which is my fave part of this post… oh yes i can!! who knew a song with the words ‘even if i farted and followed’ through in could be so lovely?!?! haha and im not wearing my nannas dress! as much as i wouldve loved to as it was stuning, and similar to kates actually, but i am wearing a £75 vintage one form the 30’s and i cannot wait. bridal boutiques werent for me either! 😉 ahhh i think you deserve to have an award on your mantel piece! xx
