Weddings and Aurifil

Well, there is a connection!!

On a very, very hot day in  March (our southern hemisphere summer was extended this year) , there was a wedding celebration in my family.

I needed to co-ordinate my mother of the bride (HOW I LOVE WRITING THAT!!) silk dress and jacket with the tie (yet to be purchased) for the father of the bride.

I didn’t want to take my ‘ensemble’ with me as I shopped, and the said father of the bride was ‘allowing ‘ me (i.e. I told him I would find something) to make the tie purchase on his behalf.

Now, this is where the spool of AURIFIL comes into this little story!!

I chose one of the colours from my dress that matched up with an Aurifil spool colour.  The “Official Aurifil Colour” is medium red – but I prefer to call it a more interesting title of “marvellous MELON”!  Once the selection was made, I put the spool in my handbag, and I could easily take it with me as I looked for ties in the menswear departments at the shops.

Despite some difficulties in finding this colour in ties, as most these days seem to be more sombre – or striped (and I didn’t want to choose one honouring a football team), I finally located one. Oh happy wedding day!!

And yes, we had a wonderful time on the day – despite it reaching 38 degrees and 32 degrees around midnight.  The proud parents of the bride were appropriately ‘colour coordinated”
