My best friend is getting married and I have all things “wedding” on my mind – that would explain my wander into Brighton’s vintage bridal boutique, Hope & Harlequin. Now unlike my dearest BFF, I’m not even close to marriage (not even the SLIGHTEST bit close, ahem), but one foot into this shop and the entirety of my dream wedding flashed before my eyes. I could see it all – the silk fluted fish-tail wedding dress, the lace veil, the hand-beaded clutch, the…husband. It was all so perfect you see. BUT until then, I’ll live satisfied and vicariously through the current bride-to-be with a vow to revisit this Brighton bridal boutique when it’s my turn to say “I do”.
