So, one of my best friends is getting hitched at the end of the year and it has been requested that 'yours truly' is Maid of Honour. Of course I promptly, not to mention gladly, accepted. The bride-to-be and I are currently on the hunt for her wedding dress which is very exciting, emotional (in a good way) and, well, a lot of fun really! Personally, I have never envisioned myself getting married. Maybe this is because I have remained single for so long, but even as a little girl growing up I had no desire of a fairytale wedding. I am slightly disheartened by this lack of emotion with regards to marriage but I have not completely ruled out my 'big day' and I shall tell you why...
Last summer, I stumbled upon the pictures of Kate Moss' wedding. Now, this was a few weeks after she got married, which I was aware had happened, i'd just never seen the photographic evidence. There she was, in her vintage-style cream dress and matching floor-length veil, designed by John Galliano. Beautiful - from the twinkling embellishments to the sheer material that ruffled at the hemline. As soon as I saw the dress my immediate reaction was 'that's what i'm going to get married in!' And finally, I felt that spark.

Somewhere inside of me there is a desire to get married after all (even if it is just for the dress).

  1. I felt the same when I saw her dress, it definitely confirmed my need for a sleek little number rather than a Carrie Bradshaw poofy princess wedding dress (although that was absolutely beautiful too!). Her wedding photos also made me decide I want my groom to look as awesome as Jamie Hince did on their wedding day. Blue suit and sunglasses - yesssss! ♥
