Wedding Dress Shopping

Personally I don't really enjoy shopping for clothes so when my best friend invited me wedding dress shopping I wasn't looking forward to it as much as I should have been. It was the first time that I had been shopping for something as big as a wedding dress for someone else. 
We had made appointments in two shops. The first was a lovely little shop with tons of dresses. The lady picked out a few different styles and got my friend into the changing room while me and her sister sat and waited. All of the dresses were stunning so it was all about picking the most stunning dress for her body shape. We quickly whittled them down to one amazing dress that she loved. this is where the dilemma came in. Should she then go and try more dresses on? 

We decided yes and went to the second shop which was a much bigger store with lots of dresses. the lady there made picking out dresses a team event and we all got involved. I picked a dress out with a bit of drama going on, a low waist and a beautiful princess skirt. My friend then tried them on.

Now here is a tip for anyone accompanying a bride to be to pick the most important dress of her life. When she puts on a dress that not only leaves you speechless but her too and she doesn't want to take it off you know you have got the one. you can tell!! there was no question about it that dress was made for her!!

The problem now is stopping her from putting it on every chance that she gets!!

Tell me about your dress picking stories, id love to read them

Beautiful Bath

Yesterday I got up late and was wondering what would be fun to do for a few hours. In the end we popped into Bath which is just 20 minutes from where I live. Since I moved to the area 6 years ago, bath has been the closest city to me and I have taken it for granted and so I decided to take this opportunity to big up Bath. Here are a few reasons Bath is great.

Its Beautiful

I don't know much about old buildings and architecture but I do know that the buildings in bath are some of the prettiest I have seen.
 
There is the Abbey which is stunning but so are lots of the other buildings around and about. The weir is beautiful and dramatic, Pulteney weir is so visually stunning in fact that it was used in the filming of Les Miserables.

Lots to do

Like all cities Bath has lots of fun and interesting things to do both day time and night time. There are tons of great restaurants to choose from with lots of different styles of food. The Roman Baths, Thermae Spa, Royal Crescent and  the Abbey itself will keep you busy all day but if you still have energy by the nigh time there is a lively night life.

Shopping

There are not as many shops in Bath as there are in larger cities however there are far more pretty little boutiques where you can stumble upon a special find. I love shopping in bath for unique gifts and interesting items.

I'm 100% sure i have left loads of things out but this was my snippet on why Bath is great, I hope you liked it
