Little Miss Stephanie is hosting her annual To Have And To Hold Party
and I told her that I have next to nothing in the wedding department...so,
I hope she doesn't want to cover me in honey and pour fire ants on me...
but I am resurrecting an old wedding related post from many moons
The pictures are ghastly...I'd-edit them if I could...but I no longer have them...
I did enlarge them...which, on second look...might not have been the best
but, I still like my story...and I find myself waxing nostalgic...all sentimentality...
wondering how Minnie and her man have weathered these past few years...
the recession...poor guy worked for Lehman Brothers...and well, you know...
Ok...I'm getting out of the way now!
So, let me introduce you to my diminutive friend,
the newly married Mrs. Minnie Smalls-Littleton.
Her off-the-shoulder bridal gown was made from
the finest Spanish lace handmade in the small town
of Piqueña...where else?! (In reality...it's one tier
from a skirt I bought at JC Penney a million years
But I digress...Minnie's tiny waist was accented by
mother of pearl accents romantically shaped like
hearts in keeping with her beachy OC theme.
Minnie decided to go with a full flowing skirt, since
she knew herself to be a "stress eater" and was not
about to wear a Spanx to hide to pre-wedding 10
pounds she knew she would gain!
The layers of pink tulle underneath provided
both a fullness and camouflage that Minnie truly
appreciated on the "big day"!
The miles of lace were gathered behind Minnie
with another MOP heart adornment to create
a bustle-like effect that flowed into a dramatic
train that even Princess Di would have envied!
Her charming little bouquet...
Tucked inside her bouquet were a piece of beach
glass, a mop heart & a shell...all souvenirs collected
on long romantic sunset strolls with Mr. Littleton.
Her custom made earrings...
Her glittery garter.....
And hiding underneath that classic gown...to Mother
Littleton's shock & horror...Minnie produced a pair
of hot pink flip flops...like they say, "You can take
the girl out of California, but you can't take that
California out of the girl!". ;)
