Why do bridal models always look so blinkin' bored and moody?

There's this little boutique wedding dress maker that I walk past every week when I take our daughter to ballet. I'll give her a shout out - - in Kingston, Milton Keynes. I don't know her or her business so this isn't a mention she has asked for!

Anyway, as I was saying, every week, I walk past her shop and she has an A Frame poster outside and it has a beautiful bridal model on it and I honestly think the reason I noticed it, was because... wait for it... 

... the model was actually SMILING. Look!

Like, smiling like she was happy to be getting married of all things!

Why doesn't this happen more often?! Flicking through the wedding magazines, all the dress models look sooooooo miserable. I really don't get it! They are trying to sell you the dress that you are supposed to wear on the happiest day of your life! I'm sure there is some well market researched reason for their surly faces but it's just baffling to me. 

So, more smiles please models. I'm sure they'll listen to me! The true voice of authority on this subject.

Oh and just to quickly loop it back around to us, our wedding tea towels will also make you smile so if you want to see our full range of designs then go here or email me on BAM!

There is a strong chance I will never ever ever stop regretting this.

Shout out to the already married couples - what did you do for your Guest book?

We had a beautiful vintage typewriter, all loaded up with paper, ready for our friends and family to type us lovely messages on. Oh the fun they had doing that.

But, then somewhere within the big clear out of the venue after the wedding, the pages got lost... Bye bye memories. That was the end of that.

We, as if I even need to tell you, had wedding tea towel invitations for our own wedding, and we didn't think to frame our invitation tea towel and get our guests to sign the border so it could be hanging in our house right now.


James & Kate are such clever clogs. Well done you xx

5 Other things you can do with your Wedding Tea Towel.

1. Wear it.
Yeah, that's right, who needs a Wedding Dress, this invitation doubles as the most important dress you'll ever own.

2. Whip It.
You know the score, roll it up and flick it at your partner's butt, how many other invitations can you do that with? I'll tell you none.

3. Dry With It.
Let's not forget you can dry up with it, I mean you probably won't want to, but if you're in a tight spot, and all your other towels are in the wash, you know it's there.

4. Snuggle It.
Feeling sleepy? Pass me that Wedding Tea Towel and let me curl up underneath it. OK this one might only apply to babies, but you can't do that with other invites.

5. Flag It!
Look at that beautiful flag rippling in the wind, what a world we live in! Wedding Tea Towels literally savings lives on the beach!

Sometimes I just wish we'd never invented the Wedding Tea Towel.

 It's true, I do ... and these are the reasons:

1. I want to experience that 'what the hell is this?' moment when I'd get handed it to open it up. I would honestly be so shocked, I wouldn't know what to say. I can just imagine my reaction now... it'd be sensational.

2. I want to have it in my kitchen so I can show off to all my 'normal' friends, who don't have one, the kind of thing my cool friends do. What's that? Yes that's right, I have a buddy that sent an actual tea towel for their wedding invitation.

3. I want to be able to reminisce and say (secretly to Ben of course) 'ahhh Sophie & Nick are getting married, they've sent us an invitation'... pause... 'it's a nice card, isn't it?... BUT do you remember when Kelly & Dom sent us that wedding tea towel, that was amazing!' Oh how we'd laugh, remembering the moment we opened it and realised what we'd got!

But, I'll never get to experience any of these things. Which is sad. Oh well...

Bye for now.
