Oldsmaids - Jeff's nickname for my bridesmaids/ matrons of honour/ attendants/ partners-in-crime/ Racal Rejects / and 101 other adjectives I could use to describe them, but not on my blog! LOL! I've known these 3 girls since we all worked at Racal together, 25 years ago, and we have supported each other through marriages, pregnancies, the good, the bad, and the ugly. And I love them all :)
And this is a handmade gift I've made for all 3 of them to pop a photo of us in our celebration outfits in :)
Organisation - This one is essential. Last April, when we decided to do this mad cap celebration we found the venue, paid the deposit and sent out the Save the Date cards (will be under 'S' when we get there!). I kept my eye out for dresses for me and the oldsmaids. Just as well I started early! Finding something that 4 adult women could agree on was not easy! At one point I had them dressed in Teletubby outfits as per Alice's wedding in The Vicar of Dibley LOL! Took 6 months - I think my sigh of relief probably caused a tidal wave somewhere! Then I created a month by month plan of what needed booking, paying for, making and creating. It was so worth it as it's on me all the time, easy to refer to, update and see exactly what still needs doing - at time of writing ... A LOT!
