Laura at Decor to Adore has been writing a fantastic series on the upcoming Royal wedding. You may remember the Fit for a Queen High Tea she held a couple of weeks ago. This week she's asking for submissions for a What to Wear linky party. There are 3 categories - Pretty Princess or Perfectly Putrid for all those bridesmaids dresses we may have in our closets, Hats Off for the fun hats we may have for Derby Day, and Best British Baubles for the blingy accessories one might wear.
I've worn a few truly awful bridesmaids dresses throughout the years. Unfortunately they were from back in the days of the film camera, and both the dresses and the pics are long gone. I love wearing hats, but they tend to be pretty basic without the feathers or blooms that you might find on a truly winsome hat.
So that leaves Baubles. I can do baubles. This is what I wore on my wedding day.
I even had austrian crystals on the tips of my manicured fingers. "I'm a princess, I'm a princess!"
And because the blingyness didn't end when I switched gowns part way through the reception - Here I am in my Asian wedding gown with my little man ring bearer. The gown is covered in gold threaded embroidery and sequins. How's that for bling? You can also see the enormous diamond drop earrings borrowed from my mother's extensive jewelry collection. I was terrified I'd lose one, and kept checking my ears to make sure they were still there.
Thanks for popping in and taking this trip down memory lane with me. Run over to Laura's party to see the bridesmaids' dresses that might show up.
