3 Looks for a Summer Wedding

It seems not too long ago when I shared three looks to wear to a spring wedding. But that season has come and gone so quickly, and summer is upon us. And it is the biggest season of the year for weddings, so chances are you have a few invites and may be wondering what to wear. It's pretty easy to figure out summer wedding attire if you keep the location in mind.

Of course you have the invite to start with as well. It should say "Black Tie Attire" or "Black Tie Optional" or perhaps something like "Formal Beach Attire," and it will have the ceremony time. Generally indoor evening weddings call for more formal attire than outdoor afternoon weddings.

For an indoor wedding, no matter what time of year, you can never go wrong with a Black Formal Dresses. An elegant knee-length cocktail dress, like this FAIRY COUPLE Women's Off the Shoulder Lace Vintage Wedding Party Cocktail Dress is perfect for a black-tie optional indoor wedding, while a sleeveless o…

Easy Pumpkin Gingerbread Trifle


This trifle couldn't be easier. It is bursting with pumpkin and gingerbread flavors, perfect for a holiday dessert. You can make it ahead of time, which actually makes it taste even better, but it's so easy, you can also make it at the last minute.

All you need is:
  • pumpkin spice pudding
  • gingerbread cake mix
  • whipped cream

Jello pudding brand now makes an instant pumpkin spice pudding mix. Hallelujah! I also cheated by using an instant gingerbread cake/cookie mix. When you're mixing cake with cream or sauce, you can get away with a box mix. I made the whipped cream from scratch so I could make dairy-free whipped cream using coconut milk, but you can always get store-bought whipped cream if you want. Sprinkle the tops with cinnamon and nutmeg for a festive touch.

Simply layer the cake, then pudding, then whipped cream, then layer it all one more time. I put it in these little canning jars to make them easy to serve. Besides, they're cute! I used a round cookie cutter on the gingerbread cake.

These are the perfect dessert to add onto your holiday menu. They're so inexpensive, easy and delicious. And you can make them ahead of time.

*TIP: Refrigerate at least a day before serving. All the flavors blend and the pudding moistens the cake. Yum!
