One of the most memorable moments of my own wedding day was the song I walked up the "aisle" to.
As if seeing your 'ugly crying' face is not enough... this shocked face seemed to appear a few places also,. much to the joy of my self esteem! Following the big dress reveal and the pot of emotions which ensued,
I actually forgot what my initial reaction was to the blue dress until I saw the show myself. I DO know that I fell in love with every thread, every detail, and especially the colour once the initial shock was over. Of course the initial reaction is going to be shock, no matter what shape, style, or even colour it is, but this was something I knew in my heart that Jamie took time to choose, to decide on and to take a risk with. Looking past the shade, I could see that he thought about what I liked and would look my best in - the waistline, the shape, the back, the sleeves, the detail.
Of course going on a show as such, you know there will be elements you will not expect and that will be 'different' , but just like all things in life, it is up to you to see it in whatever light you choose. I admire and love Jamie for taking the risk to dye my dress. Looking back on my photos now, I know he made the right choice and I honestly cannot see myself in anything else. It just worked. He saw opportunity and he went with it, and the result, in my opinion (be it a tad biased) was amazing, and blue-tiful!
Taking part in Don't Tell the Bride was definitely an emotional rollercoaster for both of us, and this moment was definitely the pinnacle of the ride. I will never forget those blindfolded moments. It was probably the most intense moment of my life, and what felt like an eternity gave way to a reaction that confused, surprised, shocked and baffled. I would love to share with you in my next post what was going through my mind in those moments and what I really thought about the BLUE dress that came from that kitchen pot.
It all started with a quickly thrown together image-less profile, a few keywords and a click. I had heard some inspiring stories, as well as some slightly concerning ones too, from friends who signed up to 'Plenty of Fish.' Luckily, I've always opted for the bright side. I was always a social butterfly and loved my girls' nights out, but there's only so much you can get to know someone after a few Jagger bombs and a bit of Beyoncé playing in the background, so I thought it was worth a try to sign up too. I was not expecting to meet the person I was going to cross a lake on my wedding day for! I do believe that everything happens for a reason. They say "fate will find a way" - even if you cannot swim.
