Frood and I are getting married at last.

It's a very small affair, as we've been together for 20 years and we had our own thing 13 years ago. This is just dotting the Is and crossing the Ts sort of thing.

But, still, it means I need to buy a dress.

Me.

In a dress.

Lawks.

Sam

I know nothing of frocks.

I have, however, an abiding memory (and somewhere, a photograph) of a friend (Andy Bennett, 6-foot-5 actor and all-round strange chap) dressed in black bondage trousers and leather top, Doc Martens umpty-nine hole boots, and a fetching pink ballet TuTu. For some reason, as soon as I saw the mention of you getting married, that is the picture that popped into my head, and I've never met you. My apologies.

This may be the product of a mind unhinged by too much Jeremy Kyle, and a small clipless incident yesterday which appears to have damaged my hip rather than my ego, so that the drugs I'm on at the moment aren't helping. Having said that, sincere congratulations to you both. If I find the photo, I'll post a link. I'm sure you won't look like that, but it may give you a laugh. Sorry if that's not much help.

I think I may need a lie down now.

Congrats both. I recommend a little window shopping :wink: One Peak District boozer recently offered to do a reception for £7,500. :faint:
Dear daughter is doing the same in May. Unfortunately she picked the day of the Rail Ale beer festival :cry:

I don't know if my parents are coming. It's after the start of the motor racing season so they might be competing the day before!

What kind of a frock do you want?

Nice bit of lacing here, in a range of colours...

Congratulations!! A lot to be said for keeping it small, IMHO. Oh - and I'm sure they'll still let you get married wearing something-that's-not-a-dress ...

Ooh fab! Much congratulations.

No suggestions on wedding gear from me. After all, I wore tweed plus fours and a flat cap, so I'm probably not the most expert on these things.

Wear what you're comfortable in. Do what you want to do. Don't let the day be about anyone else. Enjoy yourself.

Many congratulations, Sam! You've taken even longer than Jane and I did!
