When it comes to our big day they’re are certain tradition’s that we all adhere to, to avoid any bad luck…
So when I saw a wedding enquiry in my inbox for a wedding on Friday the 13th, it took me by surprise. Here was a bride taking a risk, she was choosing to get married on a very unlucky day…. she was ready for her hairdresser burning off her hair with the curlers, falling into the cake and someone stepping on her dress and ripping her train off!.
OR I have possibly encountered the cleverest bride of them all!?.
On the day of the wedding I decided not to mention the dreaded Friday the 13th!, but as we chatted I realised that Vicky had truly embraced her unlucky day with a theme of Luck!. The centre pieces were lucky charms, the cake was upside down and each guest received a scratch card as a favour. So I bravely asked Vicky how she felt about getting married on a date that many would avoid? This is the moment that I knew Vicky was one clever bride.
As you can imagine every single wedding supplier that Vicky desired was available, Vicky paired an out of season wedding with an undesirable date and saved a fair few pennies and as luck would have it the sun beamed down on her February Wedding day.
The day went without a hitch and Vicky married the man of her dreams in a stunning venue surrounded by her family and friends. So is Friday the 13th unlucky? for some (maybe) but for this bride, certainly not!
Vicky stunned in a strapless Lace dress, soft curled hair and makeup that enhanced her natural beauty. I would say that Friday 13th was one lucky day for Vicky and Steve.
