Not technically a bridesmaid...



....But a maid of honour

My best friend Kelly has just got engaged asking me to be her bridesmaid!!
Superstition states it's unlucky to be a bridesmaid 3 times so we are calling me a Maid of Honor instead!
***NB: Apparently the "curse" can be lifted if you are bridesmaid 7 times so I am currently making myself available for any future weddings!!!!***
I made a congratulations card for her last Friday
(I have now learnt that putting the heavy scrabble tiles on the bottom would've made more sense!)
and found this wonderful vintage wedding etiquette book for her as a present!
The theme for the wedding is Vintage English Garden (and i shall of course be wearing PINK!).
We're very excited and making plans already although the date isn't until 5th September 2009!
I'm throwing Kelly a bridal shower to compliment the wedding and the traditional hen night will have a Barbie theme as she is a Barbie collector!
I'm already planning a personal present from me for her shower along the lines of a vintage trousseau.
I'm thinking of a vintage suitcase filled with vintage gloves, hankies, flowers, candles anything pretty so ladies feel free to point me in the direction of any great Etsy shops!
You can read about trousseaus here and I will of course be keeping you all updated with the fun plans.
