Well I was considering it if I could squeeze into it find it, but my earrings still fit, so I shall be wearing those.


Anyone else planning to wear their wedding frippery?

Back up.

That is an awesome idea...if I had a wedding dress I'd join you. The organisers have said they want people to dress for a wedding Grin

kviddy · 28/04/2011 18:46

I'll be wearing mine... well sort of.. at 40+3 and three stone heavier not sure it'll fit! [cgrin]

whosmindingthecorgis · 28/04/2011 18:58

I have sent dh to the attic to fetch mine

headfairy · 28/04/2011 19:00

OMG what a great idea. The whole dress might be a bit much as I'm working but I'm sorely tempted to come in wearing my tiara :o PMSL

MrsSnow · 28/04/2011 19:04


You wouldn't go to someone else's wedding in your wedding dress would you?? Hmm

MarianneM · 28/04/2011 19:06

Great idea! I'd do it myself if I could fit into my wedding dress!

chrisonabike · 28/04/2011 19:15

Gutted I can't join in. Getting married next month and sitting in front of the box in the frock with a fried egg sandwich and a can of Strongbow will surely end in tears.

CommonerTrulyReigns · 28/04/2011 19:17

Just the one can coab? Wink

lambet great photo Hmm Grin

Never having been married, my friend and I were tempted to buy second hand ones...

I think I'll just settle for a hat, with a fascinator of course!

MaureenMLove · 28/04/2011 19:24

Speaking as the notorious Mo, who wears hers on a scarily regular basis, you are so nbu! It's a fantastic idea and I will be doing the same! In fact I'm wearing it tomorrow AND Saturday at another Royal Wedding party! Grin

It cost be a small fortune in 1991, so I need to get my monies worth! Grin

MadameCastafiore · 28/04/2011 19:25

I am wearing mine to a wedding themed BBQ. Tried it on last week and is too big for me oh the joy! Am going to be stuffing with loo paper!

SoupDragon · 28/04/2011 19:31

MrsSnow, you do understand that no one here is actually going to the wedding, don't you?

greensnail · 28/04/2011 19:43

ooh, I'd love to wear mine. I think it should fit now I've lost a bit of weight. It might even be too big. I'm quite excited now but DH will think i've gone crazy [cgrin]

Should I find something weddingy for DD1 to wear? I have the bridesmaid dress I wore when I was pg with her, she could maybe use it as a tent to watch the wedding from.

paisleyII · 28/04/2011 19:43

i sold my on loot years ago but great idea! i still have my shoes and bag and tiara! you have given me a good idea cheers Wine

HerRoyalHighnessPrincessCervix · 28/04/2011 19:46

I cannot believe that someone else had this idea [cgrin] [cblush]

but i'm 6 stone heavier now and don't think i'll fit, and it wasn't a meringue or anything anyway.

i feel i must confess, the charity shop in town had a large lacy bride frock in the window and I actually thought about it for a second or 2.

MrsGuyOfGisbourne · 28/04/2011 19:52

lol - will not be watching the wedding, but did think it might be fun if everyone wore their dresses that day - even those selling flange brackets in b&Q, tho maybe not firefighters. I shall be taking the dc to atheme park -so probably wont but there is a street party in our road we may look in at later to met the neighboursGrin
Min is not the trad type, is very short and lacy - in fact so short that my younger step-daughter's job at out weddign was to carry a whistle in her bouquet and blow it if my knickers were showing - she was very proud of her duty (she was 7)
I took a pic of myself tonight in mine to put as my temp facebook pic-for one day Grin

Tillyscoutsmum · 28/04/2011 19:57

We are having a BBQ with a few friends and will be wearing wedding dresses [csmile]

One of my friends isn't married (yet - 8 year engagement !), so she is borrowing one of mine (I still have one from my previous marriage). We're hiring a bouncy castle - supposedly for the dc's so tomorrow, somewhere in the midlands, there will be 5 women jumping on a bouncy castle, quite possibly in the rain, in wedding dresses [cgrin]

only if i can have lipo and a tummy tuck before 11 tmro :(

pointydog · 28/04/2011 20:28

Utterly bonkers

CocktailQueen · 28/04/2011 20:35

Har har - do! I'm going to wear my wedding tiara [cgrin]

Lexilicious · 28/04/2011 20:39

I was thinking this exact idea today! I said it out loud at work and people thought I was la-la (I am). Got married Dec 09 so probably still fits. Fifties knee length thingy (prob on profile).

Have got no flags or bunting or anything though. May just look like a crazy lady in an ivory dress. Oh! I have a union jack tea towel! I will drape it over my arm when I pop to Tesco.

HappySeven · 28/04/2011 21:52

I just read this out and suggested I do the same. DH said "would you still fit in it?". Red rag... bull! Just been in the loft, dragged it out and tried it on. First time in 9 years and tighter than it was but felt great! DH smiling too. Thanks!
