Wedding dresses I love but can't afford Part 2

All hail, Oscar de la Renta

Turns out I love lace. Who'd have thought it?!

Shout out to some great wedding blogs

I have entered a whole new world - it's like knocking on a door...someone opening it and finding a huge noisy party going on on the other side that you didn't even know what going on. My goodness - the wedding scene is massive - whether you're talking dresses, blogs, decorations, DIY, whatever.

So - in case there are any other brides out there - these are a few of the blogs that I'm loving. Most feature real weddings and provide great inspiration. Funny to see the trends - I wonder if 5 years ago people know that so many weddings would feature homemade photobooths (complete with moustache on sticks!) and artfully mismatched plates! Love it all. And it's a great place to see some wedding dresses 'in action'

Dress heaven

I can't and won't spend a fortune on a wedding dress - I'm not sure even if I had thousands at my disposal I could bring myself to, but today I saw my first desirable big bucks frock.

99% of the other wedding dresses I've seen so far have left me cold, but today I stumbled across Alice Temperley's wedding dresses, or rather 'Temperley London' ones which are right up my street.

Behold - the Jean dress

Potential dream dress alert!

I love slinky and retro looking. My ring is antique and I would love a similarly old looking dress to match.

The Mrs among you - what style was your dress? The Misses - what would you wear?

This blog is changing...and so am I....

A quick update about some upcoming changes and the upcoming metamorphosis of this blog..

So, I've been away.

I went here:
and here:

and here:

and had an amazing time.

We ate great food, we saw beautiful things and we met lovely people.

And most excitingly of all, near the end of the holiday he asked me a question...which resulted in some shopping the weekend we got home. For one of these:

Yes, I'm getting married!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <-- it requires a lot of these, there's no getting round it.

So I'm thinking of trying to keep track and making this into a wedding blog. Bit specialist, but why not.

And now to catch up with all of you!
