Wedding Foreplay ~ Shell Belle Couture
Other than my own wedding which was so long ago, the details escape my memory, I have only attended one bridal suite pre-wedding regalia. That was recently at my daughter in law’s bequest. There the bride and her attendants, wrapped in specially monogrammed robes, were pampered by makeup artists and hairstylists who morphed them into ladies in waiting. The champagne flowed. mimosas were poured and there was so much food I wondered how they would breathe in their dresses. I must say, as the mother of the groom, I enjoyed the attention, even as I steamed dresses and kept the grooms cadre at bay. It was a cocktail party before the cocktail party. I can assure you that wedding prep in my day was much less luxurious. When I think of bridal business and wedding goodies, I always think of Shell Belle Couture, with whom I reserve a special place in my intimate gallery when Bridal Lingerie is discussed. Michelle’s Cocktail collection tells the story better than I can.
