This week I made a great discovery. I know it's slightly unrealistic testing ground in (sunny) Chile when the wedding is going to be in (rainy) Scotland, but I've come across Brush on Block and I think it might be the one.
The last wedding I went to in Scotland happened to be a scorcher. It broke records, burnt foreheads and brought on hot flushes. I know the chances of a repeat of such climes come August are minimal to low, but still, we don't want too much "glow" in those wedding snaps.
So, sun cream seems sensible. Especially sun cream that looks like bronzer, says its perfect for problem skin and has all the right things written on the back - non-greasy, antioxidant, chemical-free, you name it, it's in here. And to top it all, it actually works: I brushed up before a cricket match this past weekend and was delighted not to resemble a lobster on Monday morning.
Now, I also have a confession to make, I may have opened some dangerous floodgates by googling the following four words: "long range weather forecast".
I was just inquisitive, okay, just wanted to have a tiny small idea of what the weather might be like this August. What I wasn't expecting were the following eight words: "includes hurricane remnants risk and major snow periods".
Shut down, shut down, shut down! We haven't even paid the marquee deposit yet (it's on the to do list) so I can't even begin to think about the possibility of it blowing away. Surely snow at the end of August would be impossible... even for Scotland?!
Stepping away from nasty Google, I'm returning to good old-fashioned lists. My next decisions? Choosing the canopes, and deciding whether to go for matching bridesmaids dresses, or four different styles. I've been seeking enlightenment from my favourite bridal blogs, Ruffled and OnceWed, but am currently very much wallowing in indecision...
