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.

Music Monday: "Let It Go" by Elsa on Disney's Frozen performed by Idina Menzel


Disney's latest hit animated film Frozen is one of the best in a long time. My girls and I got to see it in theaters, and we were all very impressed. The imagery and music is so beautiful, it's worth seeing on the big screen. In "Let It Go", the biggest musical number of the film, the eldest sister Elsa flees the kingdom after accidentally unleashing her power over ice and snow. In the movie they refer to it as Elsa's curse because it has caused her to hurt people including her own sister Anna, but a very wise mentor once told me that our biggest weaknesses are often our gifts which are merely out of balance, whether stifled or grown out of control. In Elsa's case, her fear of her powers leads her to extreme restraint, shutting away her gift and shutting everyone out of her life. When Elsa is free to use her gift, she completely blossoms. Well, then she goes a wee bit out of control before the whole thing is over. Through her sister's unconditional love, she finds a way to undo the damage she has caused and learns to control her abilities. Her curse becomes a blessing to her family and the entire kingdom. If you have children and have yet to see Frozen, I encourage you to go see it.

For music Monday, we have the big number by Elsa, performed by Idina Menzel. The soundtrack has many other lovely numbers and is available for purchase. Click here to buy the Frozen soundtrack.

  1. It seems the animation companies are finally going back to casting voice actors who aren't big Hollywood names but who suit the characters. I know Idina's work from elsewhere, and she has a good singing voice.
