13 - Lucky for some!


Well, this past weekend was a full on one. First we had friends come and stay for the weekend (a long weekend here being Queen's Birthday) and that always means more grog than is decent...plus we had the rugby (also means more grog than is decent let alone almost humanly possible) and to cap it off our 13th wedding anniversary!

And I have dredged up this photo for you...me and my now Scowly Teen (who was my something new, only 3 months old). I also haven't got that colour hair anymore...somethings have to change over time and hair colour is one of them!

Yes, I got wed in red...the Harlot in Scarlet...it rained, hailed and snowed that day. The key for me was that my dad was able to be there. He was dying of cancer, kidney cancer as it turned out, and we had no idea how long he would be with us. All I knew was that I wanted him there on "my" day, and he was.

So, what did YOU wear on your wedding day?

You look mega-classy m'dear! At last a proper pic of you too - and no comments about the connotations of red.

And .... you've been tagged!!

You and the future scowly teen look lovely.

I wore a rented tux. Nothing special. Silver I think.

Wonderful & Radiant in Red! You look gorgeous, & so does your Something New.

How wonderful your Dad could be there.

That's an amazing dress - really striking! Karen wore a lovely dress from Monsoon and I wore a beigey-brown suit that I bought from a gentleman's retailers in Birmingham. On the cheap and proud of it. Our whole wedding cost under 2 grand and everybody had a fab time. Part of me did want an Elvis wedding in Vegas though...

Awww you look fab. Love the frock and the Something New (glad she wasn't borrowed!).

I wore my mother's wedding dress when I got married - it was white and short and despite being a skinny thing myself I had to starve myself for about six months to fit into it. We had a 1960s wedding (because that was the style of the dress) and it was a lot of fun.

If I were ever to get married again I would wear black and white polka dots. But I don't think that's going to happen!

Oh and congratulations on your wedding anniversary.

But where's my glass of champagne?

I have yet to find out what I will wear on my wedding day (keep scaring them off before I get that far!)

Cool dress though - I may take a leaf out of your book & be 'a harlot in scarlet'
