Both of the grooms are great fans of plaid. I've been told that plaid is the "theme" of the wedding, and when asked what the attire for the wedding was (both the wedding and reception are outside), I was told plaid. So....plaid it is!
I'm wearing this Lilly Holiday Plaid dress from about 112 years ago. It's pink & green, not so much red & green, so it's okay to wear for an October wedding...right? This is the best picture I can find, but you get the idea. I also have this fuschia Lilly silk cardigan to wear over it.
The fuschia heels I wore with it, once upon a time, are no longer with us. These have just arrived in my office, only the color is more purple-y fuschia. They are going to match perfectly!
The grooms did not register, so I was beside myself to come up with an idea for a wedding gift. Then, when Barbie and I visited them in September I knew what I should get! Not that they picnic THAT often, but when they do...they'll be ready :)
(blackwatch is the signature plaid of one of the grooms)
(i have these wine glass & wine bottle stakes, and they make picnicking with wine SO MUCH EASIER!)
(Gullah Gourmet - from Charleston, SC - Hattie's Hot Crab Dip. perfect for a polo match!)
(nautical wine sweaters for your wine bottle! i'm giving them the blue sweater with the life preserver on it & a bottle of wine)
(everything will be in this felt basket, of sorts, that they can use for something else.)
