WEDDING BLUES

by - August 31, 2017


I love everything about love, the idea of love, the magic of love and the happiness it brings. A couple of weekends back I attended my sister's friend wedding, and it was amazing being able to see two people come together as one. I haven't attended a wedding in many years, and I can't remember the last time I even attended a summer wedding at that. I know summer has pretty much come to an end, but I shared my current summer wedding dresses options in this post, while in the search of the dress I picked for the special day. The weekend was one to remember, the location was amazing, a beautiful ceremony as well as a beautiful reception to top it all.


The wedding called for a weekend getaway as it was a couple of hours away from home. We left early Saturday afternoon to be able to make it on time for the wedding cookout. We arrived a couple of hours before the cookout started and so we were able to join the crew on a quick but crazy boat ride. Let me rephrase that, it was a good crazy because when you're around a group of genuinely fun and good people all you can do is laugh and enjoy the moment. But in all honesty being in a small boat on a lake with 10+ people for someone that does not swim, was a bit much.

The whole vibe of the location was modern lake houses with a breathtaking lake view, after the cookout, laughs and drinks we welcomed the night with a bonfire and smores. Not only is the bride my sister's friend but also her client- so we were there for both business and pleasure. We spend the whole Sunday getting the bride, bridesmaids and the mother of the bride and groom ready for the wedding.

I'm all for the more simple outfits for my everyday life, but when it comes to events I make sure I dress up and stand out (inserts girl emoji with the hand flip). I bought this dress exactly two weekends before the wedding (because I tend to leave things for last minute) and thankfully it made it to me on time. I wanted something that screamed me, simple yet sophisticated and this dress was it. I paired the dress with some classy strappy orange and beige sandals- because it was a summer wedding and why not. Hair sleek back channeling my inner Kim K, and my favorite pair of sunnies. Accessories were to a minimum as I'm all about simplicity. Fun fact: I have 4 tattoos.


5 Tips on what to do & not to do when attending a wedding ...
- Avoid wearing the same colors as the wedding theme.
-Tone down the lip color. Aim more for nudes, rose colors, light browns, or a light mix of colors.
-Remember to wear your most comfortable pair of shoes.
-You can be sexy, but NOT TOO Sexy.
-Remember to have fun and enjoy the night. It's a celebration.
