Polly - the Bride

This fun challenge is the brain child of Danimezza...
Click on the button to play along.

This week's theme is Bride.

I couldn't be more excited. Weddings are my very favourite thing. I love anything to do with a wedding. So today's challenge was just too much fun.

I went with a vintage inspired theme, still traditional but with a modern feel.

My own wedding dress was pink and I adored it, still do. I wrote a post about it here and you can see it below. I still think our wedding was perfect and I wouldn't change a thing. I also wrote about it here.

But it was fun planning another bride's outfit.

I couldn't stop at the bride, I had to do a bridesmaid outfit as well.
So here's Polly, the bride, and her sister Molly, the bridesmaid...

Our wedding, Sept 2002


  1. Your dress is pretty!
    Love the effort you have put into your challenge. Lovely!
    We are currently in the process of planning a wedding for my step daughter. She gets married in October. Your post has given me some great ideas ...
    Thanks Thea!
    PS I am FARRRRRR to young to be her actual mother by the way ... in case you were wondering ... FARRRRRR to young :)

  2. Love both your real wedding dress and what's in your set! The one in the set looks very REGAL. Loving the lace.

  3. I love it! That dress is so gorgeous! Seriously amazing.

    I LOVE your dress too. The pink is beautiful.

  4. Love both the dresses and love that you wore pink! I wore pink, green and red. You can see it here:

    I secretly love that I wore colour before it was "fashionable" because I didn't do it for fashion, I did it because it perfectly reflected/s "me"!

  5. That wedding dress is so romantic and i love both sets of shoes! Also bonus points for making me giggle by naming Polly's sister Molly :)

  6. Pretty, pretty, pretty!!!!

    Loving your style, always!

  7. A stunning set, Ms Thea. Just so beautiful. You would make an excellent wedding planner, you just love a good wedding so darn much.

    Has the royal wedding countdown started yet? I expected to see a countdown ticker... ;)

  8. I'm a little bit in love with this set. So pretty.


Just one little comment will make my day.
