Would it surprise you if I said I bought new pyjamas and a robe to wear on the morning of my besties wedding? I didn’t think so! I love to plan ahead for all eventualities so of course new PJ’s were in order (bargains from George at Asda too!). Of course when I knew we were going to be having dinner the night before I had to get a new dress for that too- or did I? Having recently raided the ASOS sale I had quite a few options up my (fluted) sleeve so set to working out what it was gonna be.

I settled on this Alice & You Paisley Dress (£12) as it was long enough to wear without flashing, comfy enough to sit all night in and light enough to not get too warm in! Doesn’t it look fab in golden hour too? We shot these photos in about three mins before dinner and I must say I blooming love them!

Not as much as I loved dinner though, we ate in Mottram Halls restaurant the Carrington Grill (recently awarded an AA Rosette and I enjoyed the gorgeous chicken liver parfait, confit of duck leg with chorizo and a fruity cheesecake to finish it off it was super delicious! I think it helped I’d been eating super healthy before hand knowing I was going to indulge for a few days and that I did!!

We ended the night with a cheeky escape to the brides room where we had a lovely teary moment before sending her off with one last drink before midnight. I couldn’t sleep I was so exited for the next day ahead! More on that coming soon!
