Rio and Romance
Rio and Romance
Well done, Team GB! We have done so well with our medals, mainly gold but also silver and bronze. Nick Skelton has waited until his 7th Olympic Games (after breaking his back and having a hip replacement) to win a gold medal for show jumping. Romance was also in the air. Not only will lots of medals be brought home, but a fair few engagement rings will be taken back to various countries.
Laura Trott and Jason Kenny, both gold medal cyclist, are getting married later this year – perhaps the bride, groom, Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom should all be wearing gold as a tribute! Charlotte Dujardin, after winning gold in the dressage, looked up at the score board, only to see a large sign offering her a proposal of marriage from her boyfriend. USA’s William Claye, the triple jumper, proposed to his girlfriend, hurdler Queen Harrison and China’a Qin Kai proposed to his fellow diver He Zi. It makes you wonder if all this healthy eating and exercise is the way forward? The jury is still out on that one!
There will be lots of happy mothers choosing Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom outfits and there will probably be a few Grandmothers of Brides and Grooms treating themselves for the occasion.
Our very own Florentyna Dawn is wearing a fabulous Mother of the Bride outfit this weekend. Like so many weddings, the nuptials are in the romantic setting of the hills of Portugal, which will no doubt bring its own stresses and strains. We all wish them well and, hopefully, more new and photos on our next blog.
See you soon to choose your Mother of the Bride or Groom outfit !!!
