The musings of a chief bridesmaid – Ruth Terry
My family are on serious countdown now, we’re around 9 weeks to go till my little sister’s BIG day! To be absolutely honest, everyone is very calm! I think we’ve been so organised that there really isn’t that much more to sort out! Apart from the bridesmaid’s hair…we’re struggling to find a style that works and suits everyone. Hopefully by the time my next blog is published, we’ll have worked something out and I’ll have a pic for you!
Half the ladies in our family including Mum and two Aunties, accompanied me, my sister and the other two bridesmaids to The White Room (www.thewhiteroombridal.biz) for our final fitting earlier this week. It’s safe to say we’re pretty much there with the dresses now, I’ve just got to pop back in next month so they can sort out my dress length. Unfortunately, I can’t wear shoes at the moment as my foot is too swollen for them! A delivery guy dropped a pallet of tiles on my foot last week and i’ve been on crutches and hobbling around since. Got to look on the bright side though…at least it didn’t happen a few days before the wedding! Here are our dresses ready and waiting for the big day on Saturday 8th September…
Also, here’s what the cake will look very similar too…
We’ve hired a cream post box from Instant Momento (www.instantmomento.co.uk/event-hire-services) we met these guys at the Save the Date event earlier this year. They were lovely and the box is strong and sturdy, it’s going to look great!
I’m curious to know who else is getting married on the same day as my sister – Saturday 8th September! Leave me a message and let me know if you are or if you know someone that is! Im crossing my fingers for some sunshine…already! what a wash out summer so far eh?
That’s it from me for this week but to all your bride-to-be’s out there and to anyone getting married this summer, congratulations and just enjoy! x
