I adore summer. There are so many things to love about it. Aside from the obvious warm weather, longer days and pretty dresses, one of the main reasons I love summer is wedding season. There’s something really magical about celebrating the love shared between two people…and a big party afterwards! Wedding season is the best.
This year’s wedding season got off to a stellar start. One of my close friends got married in April and I was honoured to be asked to be a bridesmaid for the nuptials. We joked about her being a bridezilla but she was actually pretty relaxed so helping to plan her two weddings, finding the perfect wedding dresses and pulling off an epic hen do were a breeze! I think the most stressful part was finding a bridesmaid dress for myself as I wanted my dress to be perfect.
I’ve been a bridesmaid about half a dozen times and I’m always so humbled to be part of someone’s wedding. I always take my duties seriously and love the excitement, pulling a spreadsheet together and bringing a magical day to life. It’s such a beautiful thing.
To celebrate wedding season and the (essential) part bridesmaids play, my pals at Pandora held an intimate wedding dinner at The Ivy. We shared delicious food in a beautiful venue while styling Pandora pieces and…learning calligraphy!
I’ve never tried my hand at calligraphy before, it was as difficult as I thought it would be but much more fun! I’ve vowed to practice and perfect it, it’s such a useful skill, especially for bridesmaids. Think of the brownie points!
Thank you, Pandora for a lovely evening and for helping me pick up a new skill!
