Extended absence

Home improvements forced me to take a bit of a blogging break, but Having Builders In turned into Christmas, which turned into New Year, which turned into DIY (EVERYTHING turns into DIY). Time really does fly.

Talking of time flying, a year ago today, I went on the easiest wedding dress shopping trip ever!  The first dress turned out to be THE dress:

Fur Coat No Knickers

It might not look it, but it really was.  But just to make sure, I did try on a few others…

The little 60’s bubble dress was a bit of a favourite.

Jacq was on hand (with glass in hand) to give some helpful advice.

Not loving frills so much…

A bit of pinning convinced me that this was the one.

And a little nip and tuck ensured it was perfect.

Another wedding related post, sorry! I’ll have something new to talk about soon… but in the meantime:

Here’s my wedding ring!

It’s a tiny 2mm band, handmade by the team at the un-wedding-y named Rust.

As my engagement ring doesn’t have a straight shape, finding a ring to fit around it was going to be that bit trickier, so I decided not to bother.  Instead, I wanted a super thin band that would sit on the same finger without clashing with the engagement ring.   I also wanted something that wouldn’t look dull or plain on its own.  The carved selection at Rust was perfect.  Delicate enough to suit the setting on the E.R but detailed enough to hold its own.

Feels quite grown up to be wearing 2 rings on one finger… but I guess I have to grow up (slightly) sometime.

My wedding in a nutshell…

Just back from a teeny-weeny mini moon (I stole that word from Zoe…!) in Amsterdam, and now bracing myself to try and sort out the mountains of wedding props and paraphernalia currently sitting in my flat… a few more wedding pics/details to follow!

Little bit quiet on the blog front recently, thanks to impending wedding and all the last-minute craziness that goes along with it…

Here’s a little photo from months ago, when I was stressing about the invites going out late. Not sure why I was surprised as most of the things done in the Threesmallapples household are usually done in a rush and behind schedule…

Little note to self: Don’t be late on Saturday!

What do you get if you mix a day with your closest girlfriends, a very sunny weekend and a lot of alcohol? Hen-idorm, of course!

And the best way to recover from a hen party conducted in 30 degree heat?

More is more

Was it Coco Chanel who said “Less is more”? I wonder what she’d think about an above the knuckle ring from Wired Jewellery.

Make a wish...

Sterling silver wishbone £10

Perhaps she’d think it was one accessory too many… but then I’d imagine she’d reconsider when she saw just how delicate and pretty they were…
