My best friend's wedding





My best friend got married this week!  (Side note - does there come a time in one's life, similar to the boyfriend/partner debate, when saying 'my best friend' sounds kind of... juvenile?)  We were all back in our home town for the wedding on Saturday and I had the best time catching up with her family and friends.  My other two oldest friends and I formed a mini group since there was no space for partners to be invited, and we had a brilliant time dancing and drinking the day away.  Responsibly, of course.  Ahem.  The bride looked stunning and didn't stop smiling the whole day, I got to do a reading in church and we got to hang out at my second favourite castle in the world (the first being this one) while they took pictures.

I always like to have a chance to wear my most bargainous dress too!  It's strictly the 'wedding' outfit in my wardrobe so it's only been worn a handful of times, and will get a bonus second outing on Monday to the wedding of Tam's cousin.  The dress and jacket set was around £3 from a charity shop a few years ago and whenever anyone admires it I delight in telling them so.  My shoes and bag are from M&S, and the hair slide I made by super gluing and tying pompoms to a plastic comb from eBay.  I actually let a different hairdresser near my hair (a big deal for me, I'm extremely wary of looking too 'done'.) and this turned out to be...not a great plan.  My hair was meant to look like my beloved Emily Blunt, it turned out more...well, puffy.  Still, it stayed up all day so I can't complain really.  We danced to every single ceilidh dance that night, including one that involved the girls being helicoptered around the dance floor by the boys, a good hair test if ever there was one!

  1. I love your £3 dress! (and your hair looks good to me, too)

    As for the "best friend" thing... I don't know... does it become modified to "oldest friend" or "closest friend"? I find it odd now that the people who know most of my secrets aren't the same people who spend the most time with me - my "best friends" have moved away and now I'm very close to newer people. It doesn't seem as simple to rank one of them as "best" any more...

    1. This is exactly my issue and you've managed to word it perfectly, thank you! Yeah I guess I'll just go with 'oldest' in this case...

  3. I didn't think the "best friend" thing was such a big deal but one time I was talking about one of my uni friends to another friend and said "my best friend..." and she was all "oh, I thought I was your best friend!" so now I just say "my friend".
    Really love your pom pom slide!

  4. That outfit cost £3!? Woah! And your hair looks lovely. I still have a best friend too, which does sound juvenile, but when we get together we can be pretty juvenile so I figure its OK....
