Wedding Wednesday, post 8

Wednesday is here again, so it's time for another Wedding Wednesday post, and today I'm going to tell you about the little accessories, like the jewelry, the shoes, the veil etc. I'm also supposed to tell you what the bridesmaids were wearing, but I didn't have any bridesmaids, it's not all that common in Denmark, so I'm just going to leave that out.

I'll start with the shoes, funny story really... when I went to try on dresses, I borrowed a pair of shoes at the store. After having decided on the dress, I realised the shoes I were wearing I really liked, and best of all they were really comfortable... so I asked if I could buy them, and I got a really great deal, half the price of the new ones, because others might have borrowed them while trying on dresses.

My shoes, with a little heel, but not too much because then I'll be taller than my husband, and a lower heel is also more comfortable. I might colour them so I can use them again... but what colour? Black is the safe way to go, but it will also depend on the clothes I will wear with it!

My veil, well the lady at the store just put one on me, so I could get an idea of the whole look, and again I took that one, I guess I'm pretty good at making decisions... or the lady at the store just knew what I liked, without me knowing it ahead of time... Also in my hair were some little twirlies that I ordered online since I thought they would go well with my necklace.

My veil, you can barely see the twirlies, but they are there!

My garter was I actually borrowed from a friend that had been married 1½ year earlier, so it was both my something borrowed and something blue... well my earrings was also borrowed from my mum. The necklace is a Swarovski cross that my husband bought me when we visited Prague back in 2004.

Showing of my garter (it's a common tradition in Denmark, as well as the groom is showing his boxers). You can see the necklace, but for at better look see the top picture of the blog:)

I guess that was it for my accessories. Have a great day everyone!


  1. the groom shows his boxers? that's so funny! you sound like the most easy-going bride. i wish more brides were like you! :)

  2. I love the tradition of the groom showing his boxers! I love the second picture because we got to see more of your dress...and BTW my husband picked up the swap goodies and sent me pictures! I LOVE them! Thank you so much Connie! He'll bring them over in a month or so - mail to Fiji always magically disappears so I thought sending them to Australia would be safer...I had yours registered so fingers crossed! I'll post about them soon!!! THANK YOU :)


Your comments makes me smile:)
