Any Suggestions for a Bride With Crutches?

Recommended Posts

My fiance and I are getting married in two weeks at the Excellence Resort in Playa Mujeres .  Since I have known him I have had two surgeries on my left knee.  The night of my bridal shower I tore the ACL in my right knee now requiring a third surgery in the three years we have known each other!  Some may call it bad luck, I say it's what brought us together in the first place.  I now will be spending my week long wedding in a huge knee brace and ugly crutches that I have used in all my past surgeries.  So I guess I have found my "something old" or maybe it found me?  No heels, no cute dresses, and all the hard work I have done to look my best on my wedding day were destroyed in a matter of seconds!

 

Anyway...Anyone have any suggestions on how to spice up my crutches so that they are not such an eye sore on my big day?

Are you getting married on the beach, terrace etc..? Maybe you can have the resort drive you up to meet your FI in a golf cart. Once there, you can just step out with a cane, if you can. Have them decorate the cart for you as well. Good Luck!!

Sorry to hear about your knee...sad.gif

I think you can still get dressed up and do everything as planned. U can take pics without the crutches (carefully) u just have to be creative and use your hubby as a "prop" . U can always get your crutches hand painted or buy some lace or ribbon and dress them up. I think although you may feel as if your day will not be what you HOPED it to be, you have to make it what you WANT it to be..

 

Good luck!!

Sorry to hear about you knee. 4 weeks ago I was in Mexico and I fractured my tibia and I was on crutches. Th resort was large and I was exausted trying to walk around on them with a big cast. I suggest borrowing a wheelchair when you are there and using if to get around. I don't know if you want to use it for the ceremony or not. If you do I would research decoration wheelchairs for weddings.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
