Well, I am a LITTLE behind in posting this, but a couple weekends ago, I had the pleasure of attending the wedding of two of my dear friends here in LA. Their wedding was held at the quaint and beautiful Highland Springs Resort in Cherry Valley, CA. Obviously, when you find yourself all dressed up and close to a lavender field, one has no choice but to take some pictures for her blog…am I right or am I right?
In my opinion, choosing a dress to wear to a wedding can be very challenging. First of all, you don’t want to wear white. While this seems like its a no-brainer, there were a couple girls at this wedding who were wearing white and I was a bit annoyed at that. Let the bride wear white, you can wear your cute white sundress some other day. Another thing to remember is to keep your look on the more conservative side. Weddings are not the time to look like you are going to da club. I’m not advocating looking like a nun, just keep it feminine and pretty and you will be fine. In my opinion, if you can find out what the wedding colors are, its a good idea to avoid wearing it. No one wants to me mistaken for a bridesmaid all night if you aren’t actually a bridesmaid. Most importantly, pick cute shoes that you can live in for the better part of the evening. I personally love dancing at wedding receptions, so I always try to keep that in mind when choosing what heels to wear.
Since the location of the wedding had a retro feel to it, I decided to go for a look that coincided with that vibe. This is not something that you have to do when getting ready for a wedding, I just chose to because, well, I’m a fashion freak, what can I say? I’ve had these turquoise-accented clubmasters for years, but I think that they were truly meant to be worn with this dress, no?
Happy Tuesday and thanks for reading! xo
