After all of the months of effort to make our venue look amazing, I seem to have put next to no effort to make myself look fabulous for my big day. The diet never happened, nor did the full on exercise regime to tone me up. I wanted to indulge in a little pampering, but my budget seems to be swollowed up with frequent online forays into the world of Amazon and Ebay! I had my make up and hair trial last week, which was great fun, and my fab make up artist did a wonderful job. I actually felt rather pretty after she had finished, but even so, the saying "You can't make a silk purse out of a sows ear" came to mind! I still feel a bit of an imposter in the sisterhood of brides and that I have no place in their world. How utterly ridiculous is that!
Mybe I feel like this because my hair is too long and desperately need colouring which is just making me feel bleugh all the time. Roll on a weeks time when the grey gets covered up, and then for the big post wedding hair cut. I really can't wait!
I know that I'm being really daft and maybe I'm not seeing the whole picture when it comes to the true meaning of the day. Ultimately the day isn't about the dress, hair shoes etc . That's the superficial bit. The most important bit is that I'll be marrying the man I love to pieces surrounded by everyone who mean so much to us, and who are there to share in
But, I can't help feeling old fat and very unlovely at the moment.Where is a fairy godmother when you need one to transform me into the belle of the ball!
