Girls night

Postby CharlesK » Mon Aug 30, 2004 9:28 pm

obviously too much wine in those goldfish bowls when you arranged this on saturday - girls night on an mx5 forum- stick to the knitting and try the womens rural institute site

Look forward to Tuesday.

Done the WRVS found it to be the most boring thing on earth - who wants to knit, sew, make scones etc. Shopping is definitely the better option.

Anyway down to more serious things - the main subject of the launch of the ladies night is my forthcoming mother of the bride outfit. Need some help girls. Bridesmaids are going to be in red/terracotaish!! Mother of the groom has her outfit and it is CREAM (my poor daughter). All of you BBQ ladies will understand this subject as it has been prediscussed.

That's a difficult one. There is obviously a theme going on .. red/terrracota/cream so you turning up in say lilac it will be really off. What are the "in" colours this winter season. Isn't cream a bit of a mistake surely you stay clear at a wedding

Hello Girls

How about a Nevada blue frock!!! Then it would match your car!
Has everyone dried out after the weekend (from Saturday night and Sundays rain!!!)
It has been very sunny today why could we not have had that on Sunday!
Oops how boring talking about the weather!! :shock:

Hi

I left Callander early on Sunday.. about 3 miles down the road it was sunny. Windy but sunny.

Dot dot loved your signature.. I spent last night pouring over the Dictionary of Quotations. Did find something that made me laugh out loud by Dorothy Parker.... Your can lead a horticulture but you can't make her think. Still tickled by that.

Nevade Blue given you outfit some serious thinking ..what about Burgandy

For those of you who may be wondering what on earth is going on here I will let you know how this has all come about:

During the Callander Classics weekend the girls who attended thought it would be a good idea to give the ladies a chance to have a chat about whatever they fancied (this. of course, being decided when much red/white wine was flowing at the BBQ).

Men/car stuff is a bit boring so we thought we could discuss more interesting things.

Cream is definitely not the colour to wear (as mother of the groom) bride could be a little upset! What are your thoughts??

Hi, Just in from walking the dog and I see that you were all prompt off the mark and ready to "burgundy".

Cream is definitely not Good for the mother of the groom----big mistake!!! :shock:

Linda peach going toward terracotta might be a good choice for you but remember to take along samples of the bridesmaids dresses,you don't want to make the cream blunder!!. Think wedding photographs and you could even compliment the mother of the groom with a beautiful shade as suggested (plus a hat!!)

Peach would be lovely but is it the wrong time of year. It is a winter wedding. What am I talking about ..we married in December and our bridesmaids were in peach- looked lovely in the pictures against the green of the Christmas tree.

Hi!

Horrendous evening as usual - grandson deposited for the night, daughter's boyfriend arrived unfed but, hey, I'm here now full of home made sweet and sour pork balls and 2 glasses of red wine - no change there then!
I'd like to thank Richard and Eileen for a great night and really good to meet Graham, Christine and adorable daughter at last!
Fancy us girls getting in a taxi with no money - he he - who did pay? Linda, have thought lots about colour and feel Lavander would be right -really pretty, femine and floaty - what do you think?

Sorry, can't take the comments regarding peach to terracotta!! Liliac/lavender sooooo spring summer!

What is the actual date Linda?

If you are going autumn into winter the terracotta bridesmaids are really autumny therefore you need to compliment the bridesmaids colours and not contrast them. Green and these colours go lovely together, very seasonal THINK OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS!

Date Stamp: I was thinking that it might be a good idea to review a book, once a month say. If you could suggest something we could all read it and give it our views on the last Tuesday of the following month. What do you think?

Neveda blue: Even better Linda you could suggest a good bottle of wine and we could taste it for a month and then give our comments- hic! hic!
:lol:

Anyone got any other ideas for future discussions? :?: All ideas gratefully considered.

What a fantastic idea... both to the wine and the book. Combining two of my favourite activities.

Can I suggest Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold or The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night by Mark Hadden (I think) both really great reads. The "Curious Incident" is a children's book (but one of those cross over books which can be found in the adult fiction section of bookshops)

This may sound odd but I have just been speaking to the bride to be (my lovely daughter) and she has told me that there will be deep pink in the bouquets so thought fuschia/deep pink outfit might just do it for me as I am definietly a pink person (not Barbie pink). :lol:

You all might think fuschia pink an odd colour to go with the redish colour but she assures me it looks great and she should know as she actually does flowers for other peoples weddings (if anyone interested look up http://www.posingpetals.com).

I am not in to green or peach so that narrows it down a little. I will be taking along a swatch of fabric so that I do not make a dreadful mistake!!

The wedding is on the 11 February 2005.

In answer to your question Wormy Wellies I don't know - Who did pay the taxi driver?? Lots of wine definitely numbs the brain!!

Nevada Blue: Go for it Linda that sounds really nice and I have seen several items in that colour in a couple of shops - Monsoon had a lovely dress and short jacket in a weddingy fabric. if your daughter arranges flowers I think she is the best one to decide after all it is her day. Glad you have found a colour and happy shopping. :D

What abought a nice wine to celebrate :roll: We can reveiw its bouquet at a later date!

Date stamp and everyone else! I think we should go for your suggestion of "Curious Incident". How about a review date of 28 September-that is if we can all obtain a copy within the next couple of weeks. :roll:

Wormy wellies: where does your username come from? Do you wear these for the gym as well as walking the dogs?
