Before I get into the Amsterdam picture bonanza (seriously, there will be LOADS, just as soon as I’ve sorted and edited them all), here’s some pictures or what we wore to an afternoon wedding a few weeks ago. It was quite a weird set up. We arrived at 1.30, it was the wedding and the drinks and then at 6 the close family sat down for a meal and we left. It was good fun though, and since the wedding was on a Thursday, the afternoon timing meant we were all bright and ready to go back to work the next day. There were only 40 people there but the bride had a humungous Jordan-style wedding dress and they had bought all the groom and groomsmen’s kilts too. And the rings were delivered by an owl! I guess different things matter to different people for their weddings.
Anyway, my dress. It’s vintage, possibly 1980s from the Sally Army on the foot of Leith Walk which is truly magical. Lots of vintage treasures in there! I hope I’m not spoiling it by saying that now and will never find anything again! It’s possibly a bit frumpy (especially with that extra weight I was talking about on Wednesday), and not very wedding guesty, but I wasn’t sure what to expect with the afternoon thing so I thought I’d err on the side of underdressed just in case.
Happy Friday kittens!
