It’s that time of year again…Wedding season! While some of my best friends are already married, I still have a good deal of friends that still have yet to tie the knot or are getting married this year. Most notably .. I’m super excited to be going to Greece for a friend’s wedding this summer! While attending weddings can be extremely exciting & fun, the most common question asked is…. What To Wear To A Wedding ?
Blush has always been one of my favorite colors due to it’s feminine & romantic charm. Hence the reason why it was one of my wedding colors! It’s also a favorite color of mine to wear to weddings. Traditionally most brides prefer to be the only ones wearing white, but keep in mind that every bride is different. I’ve seen more & more modern weddings where they actually don’t mind. The perfect example is my friend who is getting married in Greece, she asked all of her guests to wear white. (I mean an all white party in Greece? Can’t go wrong with that, right?) As most of you guys know I wear A LOT of whites and creams on the regular, but this is the one day I’ll stay away from those colors, unless the bride & groom says otherwise. Respectfully, you don’t want to take the spotlight away from the bride, so I also try to stay away from really bold colors such as a fuchsia pink or neon. (Again, every wedding & bride is different, but these are my personal opinions after attending a number of weddings and being a bride myself.) That’s why blush pink and pastels have always been a go to color for me to wear- neutral but not too neutral, colorful without being too colorful.
I’ve had this pink two piece for months now, and have been looking for the perfect excuse to wear it out. First of all I love that I’m able to wear these pieces separately. (I paired this pinkAssali top with a more casual outfit HERE. ) Allen & I got invited to a black tie wedding in August, (we have 8 weddings to attend this year! ah!) and this two piece would be the perfect thing to wear. Which brings me to another point… make sure to look at the Dress Attire on the invitation. It’s important that you are not overdressed or underdressed for a wedding.
Anyways… does this location look familiar? We decided to take a trip down memory lane and shoot this story at Greystone Mansion where I got married 3 years ago (watch my wedding video HERE)! I can’t believe how fast time flies. Just for fun Karen and I tried to recreate my wedding dress photo as seen here! For those of you that recently got engaged, be sure to check out my wedding series to get an idea of what you’re in for when it comes to planning and prepping a wedding! & for the guests .. be sure you read up on proper wedding etiquette!
