Today: The Sun, Tan lines and the dress fitting

8 Jun

Today was a very exciting day in the wedding Calendar.

For today I got to have the final check on my wedding dress to make sure it still fitted and I still liked it.

I had my chief bridesmaid come with me, for an emotional reaction test, I knew she was excited to see what it looked like, and I had some bits and bobs I wanted to try with the dress.

I had bought my veil online from www.lightinthebox.com, more as a test than anything else, for not nearly the price that veils were being sold at in bridal shops! And I loved it. I would have to attach the beads on more securely, but that’s something to do in the week leading up to the wedding, and it was the perfect length for me!!

I also tried out the glorious bridal shoes I bought from Debenhams, with associated heel grips to stay on!

I seriously couldn’t love them more, as when I tried on the dress, try we’re the perfect height for my toe to just poke out the bottom of the dress as I stepped forward. Couldn’t have picked a better pair!

And my CB was also ending the right emotional signals, almost crying at how pretty and beautiful I looked. It’s not often I get to blow my own trumpet at such, but I think there is a requirement on your wedding day! And I loved how I looked. And it just felt amazing to wear.

Today was also the day Charlie got his groomsmen suits sorted. It’s all coming together now! 60 days 🙂 and we have just signed our contract for temporary accommodation here in Cheltenham before the big move to Milton Keynes.

Today has been a good day. An exciting day.

I’m regards to the tan lines comment in the title, I became very aware, just as the weather perked up enough for me to consider leaving my hoodie at home, that I had a strapless wedding dress. Where the only part of my skin visible would be my shoulders, arms and head. The bits that are very sensitive to THE TSHIRT TAN. Now, not to be dramatic, but I’m now doing a rain Dance. Every morning, after I clean my face.

I have wisely invested in some strapless tops to wear if I know the jumpers will be coming off, I also wear no bracelets.

The only tan line I don’t mind being visible now is the one my engagement ring will make when I have my wedding ring put on my finger, but I think that’s an ok one to have on your wedding day!

That’s me done for now I think. Chat soon readers!
