Guess the Dress

Guess the Dress

So tomorrow is the Big Day, the day I finally say I do to my partner in crime for the past 11 and a half years and we’re officially making ourselves a family unit, ready to begin our next chapter. I’m signing myself out for the next two or three weeks (I hope, tell me off for replying to any comments), but today I have something different and special; something my friends helped with, they’ve tried to Guess the Dress! I’ve laughed and loved reading over their responses when I asked them to write a paragraph or two about what they thought my wedding dress would look like.


Uni Friend – One of the few people who made my university life non-miserable/we were miserable together

I asked Rach a few weeks back what her dress was like. She sent me this; (Rach Edit: Aren’t I hilarious)

I laughed, I contemplated the idea of it and got to thinking what would she actually be wearing on her big day.

Well, we’ve already seen the knickers on Instagram Stories. But what about the dress and the shoes? Well…shoe wise I imagine them being the tallest of possible heels – she’s always said she would wear heels regardless of how much taller than Ben she’d be. Guess we all need to get out the yellow pages for him, or hope he’s wearing comedy stilts to match the comedy dress she sent me.

Dress wise…I imagine, elegance, class and sophistication, but at the same time a level of alternative style away from tradition. I’ve got a princess dress in my head. Kind of like the one below, but a bit more poofy and more cream?

There will be plenty of sparkles and no doubt about it, she will be a beautiful bride. I will guess a mainly up do, a veil and some level of clumsyness during the day. Do they make matching bibs for the dress??
I’m hoping she doesn’t look as miserable as this ‘bride’ though.


Oldest Friend, we’ve known each other since we were at preschool, went to the same Primary & Secondary school and will always be my BFF

Having known Rach for a very long time; I feel the pressure’s on to not get this completely wrong so here goes…
I think her dress will be strapless or VERY thin spaghetti straps; sweetheart neck shape to show off her wonderful pair (in a classy way!) and quite a floaty skirt? Firstly I found this:
but then I remembered she has a mother who would kill her, so I’ve settled on these ones…


One of my closest & best friends, also my eyelash extension guru

When Rachael asked me to write a piece for her blog on my predictions for the big dayI wasn’t sure where to start (that’s probably why it’s taken me so long to write – that, and the newborn baby!) but I have finally picked up a pen and put it to paper with some of my ideas.
Rachael is one of my best and oldest friends (erm is it 16 years now?!) and I am beyond excited to celebrate her wedding day. I feel we have been waiting for Rachael’s Big Day for a very long time (I know I speak for all of Rachael’s families and friends – and Rachael too haha, when I say that). I know the day will be nothing short of perfect. I already feel emotional thinking of the day, so tissues in my bag are a must.
I have dome something slightly different (I hope this is okay) as I had already seen/knew some of the major aspects of the wedding, although I still have no idea on the dress (except that it’s not pink – haha)

Radiant – All the best face and hair masks will ensure Rachael’s glowing
Amazing – Stevie has already perfected the colour of her hair & I know the updo (half up/half down/veil curly updo) will be amazing
Classy – and Sophisticated (and clean for 5 minutes)
Happy – She will be wearing the biggest smile all day
Astonishing – Rachael will take Ben’s breath away (and make the rest of us cry!)
Exquisite – her jewellery and shoes will be the perfect finishing touch
Loose – After a few glasses of prosseco & dancing with her besties

All my love Abi x

 Feel free to leave your predictions below, or who you think is closest should you so desire! See you on the flip side as a married lady, I’m no doubt going to be still all over Instagram, because lets face it, Bali and Kuala Lumpur are two locations made for Instagram, and I’m sure you’ll see a picture of us sometime over the weekend before we’re en-route to the airport on Monday!

    Lovely post, the dresses are both gorgeous. Jo’s pick is my fave for you!

    Hmm I definitely think ballgown, something with lace and maybe an illusion neckline ? I actually work in a bridal shop so if I’m wrong then I quit ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I’m sure you’ll look incredible no matter what you’re wearing!

    How exciting! Hope you had a great time. I recently married too and know how exciting and stressful it can be at the same time.

    Congrats again, Rachael! Hope the day was everything you had imagined and more ๐Ÿ™‚
