What I Wore...To The Wedding

I have only had one wedding this year which I am a bit relieved about as it takes me so long to plan what to wear. Dressing for a wedding is different to other occasions because there are certain rules. You should ideally be wearing some sort of colour. White and black are both no-nos (both of which I have worn to previous weddings - you get frowned at a lot). Hats and fascinators are perfectly acceptable. Matchy-matchy is also good for weddings. I follow none of these guidelines for any other occasion so weddings are challenging for me. 


It took me a little while to find the perfect dress for this wedding. Being in the summer, a season that I cannot dress for at the best of times, I needed something that I wouldn't sweat up a storm in. I went in to Oasis looking for a different dress when I came across this lovely coral number. I fell in love with the lace top as it is just so pretty. It is quite a thick lace which makes it feel like it's worth the £85 price tag.


I love the sweetheart neckline covered with the beautiful lace but the cut-out back is my favourite part of the dress. I do not usually show my back but in this heat I need as much ventilation as possible!

belt:Topshop, bag:Mulberry, shoes:Next, sunglasses:Primark, lipstick:M&S, nail polish:2true

Now I know that I have mentioned no black but accessories don't count. I think. I hope, as I went all out on the black accs. I actually wore a black jacket too at first but it was far too hot to keep it on so I have omitted it from this post. 

I went matchy-matchy with the lipstick which worked well (M&S Melba Crush). I was going to wear a clashing lip colour but I couldn't think of the best colour - maybe bright pink? Instead I went for a little colour pop with my nails. This 2true shade is a lovely cornflower blue (shade20). Also went for a little colour pop with my sunnies. I love a mint green!


I always enjoy a good wedding. I usually cry no matter who the bride or groom are. If I don't all out bawl I get teary. Usually when the bride gets to the altar, during the vows, and during the dad's speech at the reception. Does anyone else have this problem?
