Thursday Treats: Always the Bride, Never the Bridesmaid…

July 10, 2014

groovy love

Two very exciting things happened this week. On Wednesday my best friend from Uni came to stay. I haven’t seen her in SO LONG (like, a criminally long time) and it was bloody amazing to hang out. You know those friends who even if you don’t see each other for ages when you finally do it’s like no time has past? That’s exactly what it’s like with Carly. I’m so happy to have her in my life. We drank cocktails, went shopping, we played The Logo Board Game (nerd and proud!) … But the most exciting thing was that she asked me to be her bridesmaid!!  Can you believe I’ve never been one before? Ahh double excitement!

The other pretty awesome development of the week was that Rock n Roll Bride has been shortlisted as Best Wedding Blog at the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards! Now I don’t normally give two hoots about awards, but there’s something so extra special about being noted by such a huge publication. It’s a cheesy cliché but it really is an honour. If you could take five seconds out of your day to vote for me to win I will love you forever!

In other news, Gala and Shauna come to the UK for our next round of Blogcademy workshops NEXT TUESDAY! Ahh oh my goodness where is this year going?

    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!

    xo
