I'm screwed.

I'm seriously screwed.

Cath Kidson poncho and striped wellies would be great for most Irish garden parties I have been to.

This is an Irish garden party.

In fact, here is a whole page of ideas grin

Ha MaryZ, I need a like button for that one!

Yes, yes address please! I promise you I will tick the floaty / hippy / wispy boxes

ShowOfHands Thu 14-Mar-13 16:25:07

My address is...

Course if we just sent stuff to "The crazy hippy who carries her baby in a sling and wears patchwork, Norfolk" it would probably get to you somehow.

I think the DMs should be mentioned in that description, and also possibly the puddle dress.

Maryz Thu 14-Mar-13 18:28:24

And the Cath Kidson brolly and wellies, though being Norfolk a lot of people may have them grin

Sorry to distract from the dresses, but this is important:

Do Weetabix have a right side up?

Kinnane Sun 17-Mar-13 12:27:23

Trills,You've lost me there!

Trills Sun 17-Mar-13 12:31:57

Showy: I'll get it all out in one go. I'm teetotal, I don't like fizzy drinks, I find oversized belts and sunglasses silly (you look like a child dressing up), can't bear it when people put weetabix upside down and I don't like any part of Gregg Wallace, particularly his head.

Trills Sun 17-Mar-13 12:32:14

But I do love the idea of putting that on random threads... grin

Maryz Sun 17-Mar-13 14:25:13


I never got past "teetotal" in that sentence, seeing as the thread is about an Irish wedding grin

I dare you to post that as a question in chat. Or even "AIBU to think that weetabix should not be put upside down?".

ShowOfHands Sun 17-Mar-13 14:31:48

Does weetabix have a right way up?


Of course it fricking well does. Go and look at a weetabix now. I don't care if you don't have one. Go to a shop. Do it. In the aisle. Report back.

I have started a thread for you. We can get the Mumsnet opinion on this.

Maryz Sun 17-Mar-13 14:44:30

Oh, here

Showy you looks lurverly. XXX

Are the shoes sorted yet?

I don't have any practical beauty advice but if I were in your situation, I would decline the invitation. Weddings should be about celebration and making guests feel welcome and comfortable, not high heels FGS.

Good luck anyhow.
