Mother of the Bride Special! Plus – a firmer body with Gatineau?


Well, it finally happened! My beautiful daughter has married her sweetheart and what a lovely day it was too. Nick wore grey, my son Brad was proud of his bridesmaid wife Kari, and the weather held out! This is the dress that I wore, and here are some of the family photographs from the big day. 🙂

Lauren’s dress looks amazing, on her 5 foot 10 frame, and her and Nick’s joy were evident for all to see. She did her own flowers, as did the bridesmaids, following on from last weeks flower crown hen party!

It was an outdoor venue, so thank God for the good weather on Saturday! She made everyone laugh in her speech, by admitting that she had spent two years collecting Pinterest settings, which she and Nick then recreated; Nick made everything including a ‘hook a duck’ to find your place setting, A ‘family tree,’ and even a little swing seat for selfies, which niece Lara took full advantage of! It was in the beautiful venue of the Hyde estate near Crawley. I do think they should go into the wedding business!

Finally, this is my favourite picture, taken with my iPhone 7, as the photographer lined up the best men, the bride and groom, and the bridesmaids, with the huge balloons which Lauren had made happen. I think I may well blow it up and put it on the wall at my place down in Devon! Along with several which will be pride of place for many years to come.



That’s it for now, suffice to say it was very emotional, very stressful, very enjoyable, and she was very beautiful. The next wedding will be mine. But first I have to find a man! Ha ha!

    Love your dress.Where did you get it from? My son got married this year in Rhodes and I looked like an undercooked sausage in my dress as it was a blush colour and I am so pale. I am.a similar size and height to you and cannot go in the sun. The day of the wedding was 44 degrees!

      What a horrible, rude thing to say. Were you never taught if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all?

    WOW WOW WOW how beautiful your daughter looked, just like her beautiful mummy. It looked magical and what a stunning venue to boot. I’m gobsmacked that they (and you) did most of the décor! I totally agree with you about them being wedding planners. Debbie your dress is lovely it is similar to my dress that I wore to my eldest sons’ graduation, I looked like a drowned rat I think it was the hottest day of the year in Bangor (Wales) I was drenched with ripples of perspiration oozing from every pore , alright I was sweating like a pig haha (I tried to make it sound romantic but failed lol) on the other hand you looked absolutely stunning and elegant. Congratulations to the happy couple :0 xxx

    afterthought, who did all the clearing up after the day was over?

    Wow you looked fan-flipping-tastic in your wedding attire. I don’t write often, but do love you blogs. I often feel a little lacking though as you pack more into a week than I do in a month, but that’s all good, inspiring. Seriously though, I was mum of bride last year, so appreciate all the stress, angst and constantly looking at weather forecasts as well as trying to fit into my outfit (in a year went from size 16 to 10), oh the power of a favourite dress. Anyway as I said at the top, you looked absolutely beautiful in that dress, the bride and groom also stunning. xx

    As my mother used to say Debbie, ‘if you have not got anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all!!” & Shirley Osbourne that was directed at you from your rude entry on 8th September. In my opinion you & the whole wedding party looked gorgeous Debs and I am sure that Mr right will come along your way soon. Take care my lovely, you are one of my favourite presenters xx

    Lauren made a very beautiful bride and you were a beautiful mother of the bride Debbie x. Your dress was very soft and elegant and didn’t overpower Lauren’s very classy dress, GORGEOUS. So very lucky with the weather too. Also, mustn’t forget Nick as he looked very smart too. They do make a lovely couple and I wish them every happiness for the future.

    I really do enjoy your vlogs Debs and have followed you since the beginning. You have worked sooooooo hard and I’ve read the really lovely comments people have said about ‘Retreats For You’ which must make you thrilled. You take care of yourself though as you really do have quite a busy lifestyle.

    Look forward to your wedding ??. I’ve said it before on here that I can’t understand why you haven’t been snapped up.

    Good luck with the upcoming singing and tea, wish I lived nearer.

    Take care xxx
