So following on from my last post - here's a sneaky peek at my dress, hair and makeup and some shenanigans that may have occurred at the reception aka the after party. There's nothing quite like a wedding for throwing dubious shapes on the dance floor to all time classics like Agadoo is there?

All of us bridesmaids got to choose our own dresses because Charlotte wanted us to be able to wear them again - so we all got given a little sheet of paint swatches to guide us with the colour scheme and then we were let off into the wild to make our purchases. My dress is from Warehouse and it is stunningly gorgeous but annoyingly it went into sale just before the wedding - isn't that always the way?! I don't mind too much though because its definitely one I'll wear again - although maybe not to such a special occasion!

None of us are what I would call a whizz at hair styling so we tried our hardest to find a style that looked elegant but was actually super easy. We went for a blogger and YouTuber favourite - the headband chignon. Backcomb your hair into a bit of a beehive, pop on the hairband and then twist your hair around the elastic and pin - job done!

Its so nice to look back at these photos now - it seems like the wedding was forever ago already - I'm sure you'll all join me in wishing Charlotte and Ben the best for the future and their married life! <3
