Wedded Bliss

Having been on a bit of a hiatus I’m snatching a quiet moment while visiting family up north. I guess it qualifies as my summer holiday? So, last week I attended by cousins wedding.

After catching a gorgeous vintage bus to the church, a lovely traditional ceremony, and then a bus trip to the venue it was time for dinner, speeches and dancing (and a little bit of blubbing.)
There was a fancy dress box, a sweetie bar, and games which all made for a fantastic evening.

A lovely summer wedding calls for lovely summer colours. This dress from Praslin has been sitting in my wardrobe since last year. I picked it up on eBay for about £30. 
The material is just gorgeous.  A lovely soft cotton that was nice and light and so was ideal for a long day to keep me cool. The dress is also fully lined. The cross over deep v neckline gave me plenty of room for my boobs. In fact a little too much room so for a little modesty in family company I had to get a couple of safety pins.

To complete my look I treated myself to a beautiful hair flower from Lady Luck’s Boutique. I had a real job choosing from the many, many amazing flowers but I figured a wedding called for big so I opted for the ‘Queenie’ Stargazer Lily and Cherry flower.  I also picked up a pair of their Oversized Round Tiki Bamboo earrings. I’d really struggled to find bamboo jewellery and these were the cheapest I’d found. Always a bonus!
My handbag was a real find! I discovered an amazing rockabilly website in Germany called Killer Kirsche, who stock so many handbags I’m now coveting that I’m pretty much set for the next 40 Christmas and birthdays. I picked up this adorable Kustenluder basket

My biggest bargain were these hella cute espadrille wedges I got from eBay for £8.99 secondhand. Turns out they were Russell and Bromley who, if like me, you had no idea who they were retail for around £250+! My’shawl’ is actually an infinity scarf I picked up from Primark about a year ago for a couple of quid and voila! 

Are you attending any weddings this summer?
