Choosing a heartfelt and unique wedding gift can a MAJOR headache whether the happy couple have a gift list or have gone for a more freestyle approach.
When my lovely husband and I got married we found ourselves in receipt of one of the most wonderful gifts from friends who were unable to attend the wedding – an evening of exquisite food lovingly prepared by their children with one caveat, we have to attend in our wedding attire! Now children in general are not known for their culinary expertise however the children in question happen to be the finest chefs in all of Leicestershire so not only was I tickled pink by the super lovely gift, I couldn’t wait to get back into my frock! Only problem was, the frock wasn’t in the best of states after a rather energetic conga movement by my cousin (pictorial evidence below).
After delving into my limited GCSE textiles knowledge the dress was back to being match-fit…
Was just checking it fitted still….honest!!
Oh and did I also mention that during a particularly tipsy evening the hosts decided to expand the offering to parentals and in-laws? Oh and that the same caveat still applied??
…impressively all mothers could still fit into their dresses!!
So here are a few multi-generational wedding dress pics….can you guess what era each got married?
The whole evening was an absolute delight with delicious food, wonderful reminiscing and fabulous company and will be something that we shall remember and treasure for a lifetime.
So next time you’re looking for that extra special gift, maybe think about what talents you have on offer, they might just be better than you think.
