It’s not my mum’s usual post today, but that’s because we’re bringing you something extra special instead. It’s our birthday!!
Happy birthday to us Yippee!
Not only are my mum and I marking our first birthday for Fifties Wedding, but in honour of the occasion we’re also giving away a ‘Lace Kelly’ dress by the wonderful Flossy & Dossy. Now how fabulous is that! Read on for more on that…
It’s very strange to think a whole year has passed since the start of this little blog – although not so little anymore! I am still shocked that so many people read it. Only last week we had a record number of visitors in one day, and every time we break our own records my mum and I get very excited . Over 63,000 of you visited last month alone, which frankly blows my mind! My mum and I only do this as a hobby so it’s pretty amazing for us that we get so many readers. Over the last year the blog has gone through many changes – particularly as I have become more tech savvy! We’ve gone from a few posts about my own wedding to even adding a Shop and have sponsors. Gosh – I never in a million years thought we’d get sponsors! People say it all the time about their own wedding blogs, but it’s so true – you really never expect anyone to bother reading it when you start these things. I’ve really been blown away, and in the last year have made some wonderful friends within the wedding industry which has been an unexpected bonus as you would imagine that everything’s online. However, there have been numerous events that I’ve been lucky enough to along to when I’ve had the time, and I’ve had a right laugh with some lovely wedding people (including brides).
I just want to say then, a huge THANK YOU to all of our readers, sponsors, Facebook likers and all you lovely Twitter followers. Everyone of you who has ever left a comment, liked a post, emailed me or even featured on the blog have made doing this wedding blog such an amazing experience and have really brought so many smiles to my mum and I. Oh I’m all soppy now!
As well as toasting to a very successful year for Fifties Wedding, to celebrate we are also giving away this gorgeous 50s style dress made by Flossy & Dossy. It’s known as the ‘Lace Kelly’ and the perfect prize for a 50s style bride, or indeed a 50s/Grace Kelly loving gal who needs a gorgeous frock for a special event.
This gorgeous handmade dress is made from taffeta with a lace overlay and full 50s skirt, and I think would look even extra stunning with a petticoat underneath. With some vintage accessories to match, you’ll look a million dollars!
