I know I probably won't surprise any of you with this admission, but I'm not your typical girl. :) I did not want a standard wedding. I wanted something with my unique stamp on it...and this meant something involving costuming and a bit of show...HAHAHA!! We had a 1750's-themed Scottish wedding to reflect my heritage. And my brother's day job just happens to be a bagpiper at a beachfront resort here. :)
|How many teenagers do you know who would do this for their REAL mother, let alone their stepmother?? <3
I wanted everything to look very rustic, almost poor, like somebody in a Scottish village announced that somebody was getting married, and they all just got up and picked some heather on the moors and went to the wedding. Our location was a gorgeous farmhouse in an unbelievably beautiful setting. We said our vows in front of an old barn and used mismatched dishes for the reception. My cake topper came from Edinburgh, and my guests were served scones from a wooden feeding trough. The only thing missing was Gene Kelly dancing through the hills, a la Brigadoon. It was beyond fabulous!!
Brian and Hunter's kilts were purple, but the plaid in my dress was more of a blurple, so I wanted to try to bring out the blue and wear my "something blue" on my nails. I didn't really want to go that dark on my wedding day, so I decided on something tonal but lighter...Revlon Not So Blueberry.
Not So Blueberry is one of the scented Revlon polishes that came out way before the Parfumerie line. It is a medium toned blurple that is really lovely and happened to be the same color as the Scottish heather garland I used. :) It has a blue/pink/silver shimmer, and when dry, it smells fruity/fresh.
Looking at the bottle, you might think that Not So Blueberry would be frosty on the nail, but actually it's the silvery shimmer that gives it the almost metallic sheen. It's quite beautiful and a very unusual color. And it looks great with Scottish heather. <3
I know they wouldn't have worn blurple nail polish in 1750 Aberdeen, but hey, I did. :D
And because I'm feeling all mushy, here's my wedding processional! :) Please enjoy the music, the outfits, my Mom struggling to keep it together, and me practically running to the altar!! And be sure to notice the look I give Brian when I see his legs in a kilt. :P
Thanks for stopping by! I will be on vacation with aforementioned sweetheart/best bud/hubby next week, so take care, and I'll see you in December! <3
