New Sponsors, and a Happy Bank Holiday!

It's bank holiday Monday, and presumably, most of you are out and about doing something lovely 🙂

I didn't want to waste a lovely wedding feature on today.  So instead, I thought I'd post a little {OK, rather large!} clue as to the venue for the upcoming Love My Dress Summer Soiree.

I posted this image on Twitter and Facebook yesterday so many of you will have already seen it, but it was too cute not to blog 🙂


I've such an incredible team of people supporting me to make this evening an enjoyable and memorable one for you all. 

Invitations are being prepared and will be circulated via email very soon {I'll be sure to let you know when}.  In the meantime, you can learn more here 🙂

I have some splendid new sponsors as of today!  Please take a moment to check out the new banner adverts and pay them a visit.  Without them, I would not be here. That is a fact…
