your wedding - how to 'relive the moments'

Friday, September 06, 2013

Last weekend I went to my first wedding since hubby and I tied the knot six months ago. Six months!! (Little skip and jump for joy.)

It was a great day - London put on a show with clear blue skies, the wine, bubbles and rose lemonade were 'to die for' (helps when the bride works for a wine distributor) and I made sure to soak up all the small details - as I now know how much time and effort goes into planning these things.

But what made the day that extra little bit special for me was re-wearing a memento from my own wedding - my rene walrus headband. When I chose it, I had two objectives:

  1. it had to complement my wedding dress
  2. and needed to be something I could re-wear at other special occasions in the future.
Wearing my wedding headband last weekend really did bring back some wonderful memories from our own special day. I loved putting it on again - and I would thoroughly recommend to any bride-to-be to invest in an accessory that you'll enjoy wearing over and over again.

My headband was a bit of a find too. While on Holiday in Edinburgh last year I stumbled upon the rene walrus boutique and fell in love with the handmade accessories. Several months later, once I'd picked my wedding dress and was able to confirm the design I wanted, Janet from rene walrus was lovely enough to attach it to a headband that matched my hair colour...

... and this is how it looked...

Happy memories everyone!

  5. We've yet to actually go to a wedding together since our wedding last year. But we do have one coming up in January, and I can't wait! It'll definitely be nice to be on the other side of it finally.

    1. I know! Since getting married I take extra care to appreciate all the details of a wedding that I know the bride has probably spent hours thinking about, and then I sit back and relax because I can :)

  6. Wow you are so beautiful! That headband is incredible!
