the ‘old’ I’ve written about before; my great-grandmother’s french silk hankie
the ‘new’ was, of course, the beautiful dress
and the blue was a pair of the traditional garters, supplied by Nadie’s ‘surrogate mum’ – and my good friend – Nicole
and ‘why a pair ?’ some of you may be asking.
In my day, back when dinosaurs ruled the earth, one only had the one – although I actually didn’t have any [ I had a blue silk ribbon horseshoe sewn into my petticoat ]
Anyway, apparently it is now the norm to have two – a slightly fancier one for the bride to keep and one for The Toss.
and which was worn proudly for the rest of the night
