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…

My First Wedding Dress Fitting


Another Wednesday means another wedding blog! I did several things related to wedding planning this last week; including registering for gifts at Dillard's, helping my bridesmaids pick out their dresses, and having my first dress fitting.

The good news is my dress zipped! The bad news is I will have to shave a few pounds if I want to be able to breath during the wedding. Breathing would be good. I could always have it let out, but I'd much rather take it as motivation to quit stuffing my face with too many calories...challenge accepted!

It was so fun to put my dress on again. I debated showing a mirror selfie, as I've shown sneak peeks of the dress here and there, but I just couldn't bring myself to do it. The bridal look as a whole should be reserved for the wedding day and wedding photos. Though that didn't stop me from sending a selfie to my fiance ha. I just couldn't resist. We don't need to worry about any wedding superstitions anyway.

Two of my bridesmaids and my oldest daughter (who will be my junior bridesmaid) each picked out their dresses. I kept the bridezilla to a minimum. I feel it's best to have coordinating, not exactly matching, bridesmaid dresses, so we started with an overall look with rough guidelines and went from there. Especially if you have out-of-town bridesmaids, it's easy to simply settle on a color, length, and fabric and let them pick the exact dress. They are paying for and wearing their dresses after all. I knew I wanted red, chiffon, and full-length, possibly with some lace or sparkly embellishments on top. You can also specify things like pleating and strap options if those things are important to your overall look. In the end, we went with some beautiful lace and chiffon dresses from David's Bridal.

Seeing my daughter try on dresses was so amazing.:) I can't wait to see our other daughters in their flower girl dresses!:) My oldest daughter went with this beautiful Junior Bridesmaid Gown.
