Seriously, the MN Style and Beauty board single-handedly (well, multi-handedly, I suppose) prepared me for my wedding. Thanks to al your advice I was appropriately manicured/pedicured, wearing a dress that fit (bought a whopping 10 days before the big day), had decent make up, smelt nice, had shiny hair and had a halfway even tan.

I just wanted to say a real, honest thank you to you all for your advice - it's extra specially nice looking back on my wedding photos knowing I looked as good as I could (well, as good as I could 3 months post natal).

ps, there are a couple of pics on my profile if you fancy a nosy at what you helped create grin

i think you look wonderful!! congratulations. i've picked up great tips on what to wear from this board before and discovered labels i would never have found without their help!!

love the shoe colour - now can i pick your brains? i want to dye my weddiing shoes (currently cream satin) - is it very easy to dye at home? i was going to send them off somewhere and no doubt pay a small fortune!! TIA

Ooh, thank you so much for the congratulations! blush. It really was a fab day.

ohcobblers I blogged about how I dyed my shoes, but basically I bought some dylon hand dye, put it in a large saucepan and dunked my shoes till they were the approximate colour I wanted. Highly scientific, I assure you grin

Brookslay no honeymoon - we have the amazing non-stop-feeding 3 month old, so figured it wouldn't be terribly romantic! We're hoping to go away for a night or two to London at Christmas.
