It's enough to make Kings and vagabonds believe the very best

On Saturday I went to my cousins wedding. It was a really lovely day, the bride looked beautiful and they were so cute together, you could really see how much they loved each other.

There first dance was to the song 'Can you feel the love tonight?'. Before then I'd never really listened to the lyrics or thought it a very good song, to me it was just famous as the song from Lion King. But, listening to it closely and watching the two newly weds dancing their first dance to it, it struck me just how romantic a song it is and how beautiful the lyrics are. Especially the line that is the title of this post 'it's enough to make Kings and vagabonds believe the very best'. I don't know how much the numerous vodka and oj's I'd consumed added to this, but I was getting really emotional haha. I'm a proper old, soppy romantic and I love weddings so much. You could actually call me obsessed (which my boyfriend does) but I just think it is such a beautiful and magic thing and of all the weddings I've been to in my 19 years, I could really see on their faces that it was the happiest day of their life!

I would put pictures of the actual day up with people that aren't me in them, but I'm not sure whether they'd want their photos being up on the Internet and as no one knows about this blog I can't ask them so here's some of mine and my sisters outfits :)

I'm so in love with my dress it's unreal haha. It's such a gorgeous colour and a lovely spring design with a lace top and lace cut out band just underneath the boob area. It's also ridiculously flattering, honestly I have never looked at myself in the mirror whilst wearing a summer dress and felt so thin! It was £36 which considering it's from Topshop I don't think is too bad as you can get plain t - shirts from there for £20, and it comes in loads of beautiful pastel colours! If this is your kind of dress then I'd definitely recommend popping in your local Topshop and picking one up! I'm searching for every opportunity to wear mine haha.

Dress, Socks: Topshop

had to blur out my face and legs on Instagram as they wasn't looking at their best haha so don't worry, it's not your eyes but I think it's a good photo to show off the dress
My sister's dress is from Asos

I planned what I was going to wear when the whether was amazing but unfortunately on Saturday (and ever day since boo :() it was cold and cloudy so I had to add thisgorgeous blazer from Forever21 (not that you can see it at all clearly in this picture, but it's the only one in which I'm wearing it, sorry!)

P.S ignore my face.


My sister just got an iPhone so of course, we had to test out the camera and Instagram haha ;)

Does any one else feel the same about weddings? Is anyone going to any soon and if you are what are you wearing?
