Head Over Heels

The brideswear shop on Slipgate, 'Head over Heels' draws customers from as far as Cambridge and Norfolk with its one-off creations and exclusives. It also has a healthy web presence and is a fine example of a business blooming in spite of the recession.

Happily, they also provide a 'layaway' service where for as little as £5 per week you can save up for that wedding dress (and matching accessories) of your dreams. Indeed, several mothers from the 'Tots and Toes' playgroup on Station Road have started their daughter's wedding funds already, hoping that twenty years will build enough of a balance to get that Fabrique or Juliana dress they wish their cheapskate fathers could have bought for them.

*sighs* I remember, but I sure wouldn't start saving at that age! Some mothers. Still, I suppose it takes all types to make the retail world go round.

It does, but they'd be better off saving in a bank!

Today's world is all image isn't it! This discussion went around yesterday at the hairdressers and we talked about getting a prom dress from France! Really? But sadly this was the case for one gal.

As for the wedding dress. I remember having a bridal book when I was a tween and dreaming over the beautiful gowns. How I wanted one in particular.....

Never have 'walked the aisle' in white. Perhaps someday - in Vegas - with a rented white gown and a groom in a tuxedo - with Elvis to marry us off.

I was married in black the first time, green the second :)

Love black - love green just as much - maybe more.....It just looks so good with red hair doesn't it?
