I honestly can’t believe this is only the second wedding I am attending this year! If the truth be told, I was meant to attend three weddings but a few of my travel escapades got in the way of the second wedding. Dressing as guest for a wedding is hard work too! Now that there are less rules to what you can wear as a wedding guest the harder it seems to choose an outfit, one, that is appropriate and two, one in which you are truly happy spending the whole day in. Now that I look back over my wedding guest outfits over the last few years, I’m starting to think that I should probably adhere to the one rule I was taught very early on in life…
Do not wearing white to a wedding!
Two weeks ago, I attended only my second outdoor wedding ever and it was extremely bad of me, but I did wear white…again! However in my defence, it was more cream/ off white, although you probably can’t tell that from my pics. So with this wedding, I was actually a guest of a guest, invited by one of my besties, Riaz celebrate the ceremony one of his old classmates – My first civil ceremony and my first time in Norfolk! It was a really beautiful day out of London, with the wedding blessing & joint reception held in the seriously beautiful grounds of Cotenham Barn in Norwich.
For the wedding of Sophie & Emily, I was luckily given this stunning crochet dress from my Grandmother, who I think knitted it too! She literally forced me to try it on when I complained about having nothing to wear to the wedding, and I am so happy she did! She’s such a tiny thing so I am so surprised it even went over my head! I teamed this vintage and gorgeously delicate knitted swing dress with my trusty Spanx dress (underneath, of course! God I love me some Spanx!) and a mix of old and new separates which I have been dying to share with you all!
I kept my make up quite neutral minus the colour pop lip and went for the big hair (although this dropped out ever so quickly), big curls look after being inspired by The Big Hair Bettyy Blogger on Instagram.
