Mario and Rosies wedding...

We were so honoured to be invited to our neighbours Mario and Rosies wedding yesterday. It was a beautiful small wedding in a garden setting at the Lavender farm.... and to be among their family and close friends was so special. I could feel the happiness and love in the air...

Of course....in typical Mardi fashion.....I was in a last minute panic as to what to wear. I had bought a dress over a month ago in Adelaide.... and not tried it on until the day before the wedding....only to discover it looked like a sack and would need altering if I wore it at all.

Briony and I hit the shops on Saturday morning in an attempt to find something more suitable....but that was useless..... so I came home totally miserable....and whining endlessly about how terrible I was going to look.
Finally within an hour or so of the wedding Briony suggested I try on some of her dresses.....and amazingly one fitted..... and whats more it actually looked ok...

I think we kind of scrubbed up ok....
(gotta love the colourbond fence backdrop)
Edited to add: Thanks so much for the lovely compliments....
As for fitting in to Brionys dress....well I have to be thankful for the cut of it..... it was small at the top and had a lovely looser fitting bottom....so it worked....as a rule Briony is almost 2 sizes smaller than me ...and this dress was an 8....unheard of for me.
The piercing??.... well I had that done just before our trip to Melbourne in Feb.....and it takes care of #25 on my 'list' ....Im pleased with it...my tiny speck of sparkle....

  1. You look totally divine Mardi and your other half doesn't look too bad either. Don't you just love having older daughters to go shopping with. They are always brutally honest which is good, well most of the time anyway.
