Thursday Treats: I’m back and (nearly!) raring to go…

Good afternoon from a very snoozy wedding blogger… I flew back to London yesterday but even the premium economy upgrade (don’t believe the lies it’s totally worth it and so much better than flying economy) couldn’t stop me being out for the count until about an hour ago! This latest US jaunt has been non flippin’ stop. Gala, Shauna and I always do this when we get together – we’re so excited to see each other that we schedule in too much and half way through are gagging for a few days of down time.

This past week I was in Minneapolis for a class which was amazing. We were staying with friends who showed us all the best places to visit and experience (as soon as we arrived we were taken out on a pontoon on Lake Minnetonka!) As our workshop fell over Pride weekend we managed to squeeze in some seriously ruckus nights out too! I’ll be writing about both our New York and Minneapolis adventures (and oh boy there were plenty) really soon.

Oh and happy forth of July to my American friends and readers! I kinda wish I’d stayed in the States to experience the festivities first hand but I’m so very happy to be back with Gareth and my kitties, oh how I’ve missed them.

    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
