Bridesmaids and Flower Girls | Wedding Series

I was so lucky to have my two best friend’s book to come away to Cyprus for our wedding. I had been bridesmaids for both my best friends Claire and Sarah so I really wanted them to be there for my day.

So I asked Claire and Sarah to be my bridesmaids and they were delighted. I also asked Darren’s sister at Christmas if she would also like to be my bridesmaid and she also was happy and said yes.

For my little flower girls I had Claire's daughters Evelyn (5) Elsie (3) and Sarah’s daughter Lily (4).

The flower girls dresses were the easiest to find. We didn’t want to drag the little girls around the shops so ordered 3 different dresses from Next and found one that everyone loved straight away. Even the little ones loved it and they felt like little princesses in them. That was the easy part.

For the big girl bridesmaids I knew what colour I wanted it was just finding the right dress in that colour which was the hardest part.

We looked everywhere online and also tried a few from Next but they looked awful when we received them. I finally found a perfect one on and luckily everyone loved it and they fitted each bridesmaid so lovely. We went for a mint colour which I thought would be perfect for a wedding abroad.

I let the bridesmaids pick their own shoes as I wanted them to feel comfortable on the day.

I ordered some flower girl baskets off amazon and they were so cheap, I also ordered them a few fake rose petals to go inside and the girls loved these.

For the big girl bridesmaids I ordered them a single Ivory rose which was fresh on the day. it was wrapped in a light pink ribbon to match my flowers.

I think they all looked so beautiful on the day and made my day that extra special.

I was kindly sent some Marigold products to celebrate their 70 year anniversary.

I was just expecting to receive some rubber gloves but I had a small box of goodies all by the Marigold brand. I never realised they there was so many different products. You can now not only get gloves but scrunchie and cloths as well.

In the box I have

Wipe away clothes
Longer bathroom gloves
Handy lightweight gloves
Cleaning me softly sponges

The Marigold gloves are so good and can be used for many things. Washing up being the most popular, but also they can be used for cooking, cleaning and DIYing.

I love using the Marigold gloves for cleaning the cooker or BBQ as the cleaning products I use for these can sometimes have strong chemicals so I like to protect my hands. I also like the fact they come in different sizes, I have quite small hands so this is handy for someone like me.

Being a mummy I wash up so much during the day so using Marigolds stops my hands from drying out and protects them.

I think everyone has heard of Marigolds and has used them at some point in their lives.

One lady at work said that she can’t use other branded rubber gloves as she has a reaction but she never seems to get a reaction with the Marigolds.

I used the scunchie to clean my oven as it needed a good scrub and clean and this helps get the grime off the cooker while using the gloves to stop me from getting dirty and to stop the chemicals from touching my skin.

I think Marigolds is a fantastic product which will continue to grow and sell for many years to come.
