You are unconventional and strong-minded – you know what you want (and are used to getting it). This short style says: ‘Take me just as I am. I’m happy in my own skin and I don’t care what anybody else thinks.’
Your independent, freethinking spirit is probably what ﬁrst attracted your ﬁancé to you and what he admires about you the most. There is something of the rebel in you and woe betide anybody who tries to make you conform. It’s your life and you’ll live it as you want! For your future marriage, some adjustments might be necessary. The challenge is to come to terms with being somebody’s wife, while at the same time retaining your freedom. Watch out for the little ways your independence might be tested – from taking his surname to being your household’s social secretary. But this doesn’t mean you have to give up any part of yourself, even though it may seem like it.
You can ﬁnd a way to make ‘Mrs’ and ‘wife’ your own, as you do with your wedding planning. Compromise and partnership are your key words as you make this transition. Take your cues from the likes of Yasmin Le Bon, who opted for a jumper dress for her 1985 wedding to Duran Duran front man Simon; Mia Farrow (who wore a knee-length skirt-suit); and Yoko Ono (who wore a crepe mini-dress… with tennis shoes). Their looks said: ‘I may be marrying an icon but I’m a person in my own right, too.’
WHAT IT MEANS: You’re the ‘I’m the boss’ bride.
YOUR GIFT LIST: You don’t need one – friends and family will make, build or bake to show their love, or buy a unique gift you’ll cherish forever.
YOUR HEN PARTY: Glamping at an artisan festival in a Cath Kidston teepee with a fancy-dress theme.
YOUR DRESS CODE: Rainbow brights for girls, pastels and Panama hats for boys.
MOST LIKELY TO… Stand up and make a speech, too, then hit the dance ﬂoor till 4am.
