They say to glimpse a bride on her wedding day (by accident, not design) brings you luck.

Lucky me. There is a wonderful tiny flowershop in line of my desk’s vision. I looked up a few minutes ago – and there she was. Wonderful dress. Fifties’ style. Tiny waist. And how so very unusual – the bride picking up her own bouquet. Then she got back into her (white) taxi. Any minute now  taking one of the biggest steps of adulthood. The only bigger one being that of becoming a parent.

Moving. I wish her luck.




  1. So very unusual. A friend of mine got married this past week, She dressed to the nines, dark blue ballgown. He in dark blue tux. Only 2 witnesses, they paraded around their small town afterwards, stopping for coffees and then headed home. The witnesses took pics.

    More memorable than huge crowds, etc. And cheaper.

    • Coffee? That doesn’t bode well. Even my youngest sister (she is an oddity in our family) forced herself to drink a glass of champagne at the wedding to the father of most her children.

  2. Youngest’s B 2 B (How horrid is that?) has already got her flowers……to keep costs down she had them made by a lady in the US. She intends to sell most of them on….. making her own Victorian dress too.
    But I do love WWW’s friend’s idea.

    • What do you mean, Magpie? Artificial flours? Travesty. Sorry. Will post photos of my own wedding and dress as soon as I find the will to scan again.

      • Needs must when the devil drives…cost being the main consideration. No help from her parents. A little from us but there is a fiercely independent streak. Long story there.

        She doesn’t know yet that my mother had artificial flowers too, wartime, and they are getting married in the self same church.

    • That would be brilliant, John. I’d love to. Please promise me one thing, and one thing only: Don’t throw the bouquet in my direction. Thank you. A friend in no need is still a friend.
