Did You Know?
During the Victorian era, knitting became a staple of a well-bred woman. Queen Victoria is even reported to have been a fan of knitting herself. It was during this time that knitting wasn’t just restricted to plain yarn fabrics, but changed to involve bead and lace knitting. — Fallin

What: Wedding of @Emrys Selwyn and @"Angelica Vorona"
Who: Family and close friends, not general UC society at large. This is a functional wedding not an Event. Also he invited @Clarissa Cosgrove and family as a gesture but doesn't actually expect her to attend.
Cost: N/A
Where: A chapel in London with reception to follow at the Destiny Hotel ballroom
Why: Why, indeed?
When: 17 Nov 1891

On the one hand this is the second marriage of a widow so it would be garish to be too lavish. On the other hand the last thing Bride & Groom want is anyone assuming they were rushed or otherwise cut corners. Accordingly, the vibe they're going for is "understated elegance" and also "expensive AF."

Bree made this!
UC/MCAB | REP 6+ | Outdoor Soiree

What: Promethean Fire and Fireworks Display.
Who: It's Bonfire Night and I have decided that wizards are Into This as the Gunpowder Plot was orchestrated by people who were trying to kill a king who hated magical people. I'm not questioning my thought process beyond that. Hosted by the Selwyns the event will be held on their extensive grounds and to make up numbers Ambrosia has seen fit to invite notable MC people as well as the usual UC society set. Basically if you've ever been to a social event as something other than a waiter you're probably invited.
Cost: N/A.
Where: Selwyn Manor, Wales.
Why: Bonfire Night.
When: 5th November, 1891.

Fire, fire and more fire.

At intervals around the Selwyn's grounds there are bonfires piled so high you would struggle to see the top and each burns from one colour to another, emitting different temperatures depending on the colour. Blue is as icy as the night and you might find yourself in need of one of the many hot beverages on offer meanwhile is you find yourself caught in the glow of the ruby red fire then you'll need a glass of cold champagne immediately. The effects of silver, purple, emerald, orange, ochre, peach, navy, and a dozen others will need to be discovered for themselves and some of them, not all, but some may contain the fumes of certain potions designed to make the night something really special. Of course Ambrosia would never actually court scandal per say but if something interesting were to happen at one of her gatherings she would be far from disappointed!

Connecting the fires are paths flanked with illuminations depicting everything from the punishment of Prometheus to Saint George slaying the dragon, encouraging mingling and conversation in areas that are technically lit up but take the promenaders on such diverting paths that they could very easily become separated from the crowd...

The evening will, of course, end with an elaborate fireworks display.
