Dear Kim Gray

If a girl tells you that she’s never thought about her future wedding – she’s fibbing. We all know that each and every one of us has been thinking, and plotting, and planning our very own special day since the moment we knew what dreams meant.
Which is why, when I got engaged, my heart sank.
Don’t get me wrong, I mean I cried because I was so over the moon ecstatic, and I laughed hysterically because I was completely taken by surprise (clever boy) but also, at the back of my head, I knew that with a ring, comes a wedding, and a wedding means BIG expense.
I’m not going to feign poverty here – because I’m not broke and my fiancé (eeek) and I will be able to have a beautiful wedding with personal DIY things that will make it unique and special to us. I just know that my taste is so awfully expensive that I’m not going to be able to have the things that I always imagined I would.
And then I found your blog and this competition and I thought maybe, just maybe, the Goddess of Good Stuff will shine down upon me. So here’s my list:
The dress that I would go for would, without a doubt be wedding001 because it is so beautifully elegant, it swooshes when you twirl, and it will achieve that jaw-dropping effect on the man of my dream - which is what I'm going for.

I would give each one of my bridesmaids a ring as a token of appreciation – because I have no doubt that I’ll be calling on them at all hours to ask for advice and tell them ideas I have and get their valued opinions, as well as to find out if they’re happy to wear big puffy orange meringue style dresses (that they can of course, shorten and wear again) so that they don’t outdo the bride – because they’re all so dam gorgeous!

And the champagne and chocolates – no way I’m sharing that stuff. We’d enjoy them in a very sultry way in some of our wedding photographs. A nice change I think, from our usual face-pulling, joke-around pictures that we have together.

The rest is easy.

The sexy underwear would go under my elegantly sexy dress, coupled with the sparkliest of sparkly shoes. And the glasses would be worn for most of the day to take the glare off of aforementioned sparkiliest of sparkly shoes. The spa would be a definite treat the day before D-Day to unwind and let the excitement and nervousness of the next day sink in. And last but not least, the heart shaped pendant, I would give that to my mum. For no other reason than because I love her with all my heart and soul.

P.S Please pick me ... I've never won anything :O)
