Finding your dream wedding dress can be tricky.
What neckline do you fancy? What fabric? What colour?
But when you find a dress that doubles as storage for prosecco, all other requirements fade away. Its perfect.
That dress isnt just a boozy daydream – its a real thing, as shown by bride Kelly McMillan, who wore the prosecco dress on her wedding day.
Kelly overlaid her dress with a metal frame that holds 50 glasses of prosecco (or champagne, if youre fancy). Shes now decided to rent the frame out so other brides can experience the joy of being a human drinks trolley.
Kelly had the frame made for her by David Wright, a blacksmith from Edinburgh. He wasnt sure hed be able to make it happen at first, then gave her the hand-crafted 30kg steel frame as a wedding present at her reception.
The frame is designed to create the shape of a ballgown – its even been painted white – and uses curtain hooks as the glass holders.
Its a heavy contraption, so Kelly couldnt stroll around or dance while wearing the frame, but theres a wide opening at the back to allow the wearer to easily slip in and out.
It was fantastic, its much more personal than just sticking a table full of prosecco and letting guests grab one, said Kelly.
You just stand in it while they grab a glass and you can speak to them. They were loving it, everyone loved it because it was different.
We had little messages and plaques hanging from it and it made it really special.
Kelly now hopes to hire out the prosecco-holding frame for £100 a session.
I asked the hotel if they wanted to keep it, but they didnt have the space, says Kelly. I didnt want to leave it behind or just having it sitting in the house.
I hope other brides will be able to enjoy it themselves too, I dont want it to go to waste.
So if youre keen, you too can act as a drinks table at your wedding. Or just rent the frame for personal use on a Saturday night. No judgement here.
