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…

Tips on Creating Your Guest List


We're having a very intimate wedding, and by that I mean like under 40...closer to 30 counting the people who may not be able to come, and I couldn't be happier. For one, we don't have to spend a fortune on catering and an open bar ha. But in all seriousness, I'm happy that we'll be surrounded by the people who are truly happy for us.

Still, even including family, friends, and coworkers; why is our guest list so small? For one, we decided right at the beginning that we weren't going to invite people simply because they were related. That may seem harsh, but we believe that blood does not always mean family. If you've had the unfortunate experience of family treating you badly, you can understand exactly what I mean. We want to be surrounded by loving and supportive people on our wedding day.

My fiance received a comment from someone regarding this that was along the lines of "You're acting like your wedding is all about you." And we were both like...um, well, yeah it kind of IS all about us haha.

I think a good rule of thumb when reviewing a potential guest when it comes to friends is whether or not you've seen or talked to the person in the last year. Of course there are exceptions. For example, I have a few very good friends from college that I've kept up with over the years but haven't had a chance to see in person recently as they live in different states. And I have a few friends in town who I haven't caught up with since moving back to Tulsa but have kept up with on social media and would love for them to meet my other half.

So, if you find yourself mulling over who to invite to your special day, remember that first and foremost it really is YOUR day...your moment to celebrate being in love and becoming one with your partner, surrounded by love and good vibes.:)

  1. I totally agree with you, blood doesntt make you family if you hardly see them..and friends can be family when you need them the most, so those are the kind of people that should be at your wedding :) xx

  2. I think you're wise to keep the guest list small. The wedding should always be about the bride and groom, first and foremost.
