This is what I wore to the wedding on the weekend – this is one of my favourite vintage dresses ever. The clutch is one I thrifted a while back, it’s basically an Oroton but without the brand that comes with them – sorry I didn’t take a close up picture of it, I will next time I use it!
Saturday morning was freezing, I already had my outfit planned for the wedding but was feeling the need to go and buy white stockings because I couldn’t handle the cold without them. But David and I went to the farmers market first for galettes and hot chocolate and by the time we had finished the weather had started to get better and by the time it came to leave for the wedding it was beautiful, sunny and warm.
I do have one small gripe about the planning of the wedding, I organise and run events for a living so when an event isn’t run smoothly I get a tad frustrated by it. The wedding took place on a beach, there were sand dunes to climb over before you got to the beach and there were supposed to be signs telling everyone where to go. There were no signs and this left a tribe of people clambering over sand dunes back and forth about three times trying to figure out where the wedding was. We were all so worried that the bride had already arrived at the place they were to be wed and there would be no one there. The bride was an hour late and when she got there we all ended up just following her to where she was getting married.
I really don’t do well with events that aren’t organised, even a casual event needs some organisation. My events brain kicks in and I can immediately pick out all the things that need to be fixed and all the things that should have been thought of before the day. But once we got to where we were supposed to be the wedding was lovely, the bride was in a bright forest green and gold gown and looked lovely.
My over locker arrived on Friday too, it comes with its very own carry bag and I’m so excited, I want to jump right in and start using it but I still haven’t got my sewing machine back – sad face! I won’t have anytime to do any sewing for a good few weeks now which is annoying, I have so many things I want to get making!
I hope you all had a lovely weekend,
