I'm not part of the wedding party (which I am more than happy about) - BUT, she told me that I have to show her what I will be wearing so she can "approve it"...The first dress I got was not acceptable and I had to go buy a new one.
Tell her to send you a link to the dress she would like you to wear. Tell her you bought it. On the day, your child will accidently spill something down the front of it just as you are running out the door and you had to wear something else.
She told me that everyone has to wear a fascinator or they won't be allowed in the restaurant - I think she was exaggerating here, but she went on at me for a hour when I said that I don't really like wearing fascinators, apparently they are a non-optional dress code.
Suck this one up. But if a magpie attacks on the way to the reception and steals it for a birds nest, then what can you do? These things happen.
My actual issue is with the hen party which I didn't really want to go to anyway, her friends are all very much like her and I really didn't fancy an evening discussing the nuances of gucci handbags vs prada...or something equally vacuous!
Gastro. Very very bad gastro.
