One of my friends got married this past weekend, and her wedding is what inspired this post. I was invited to her rehearsal dinner, bridal brunch, ceremony, and reception, so I had three dresses to pick out. One for the rehearsal dinner. One for the bridal brunch, and one for the ceremony and reception. I haven't had a reason to get too dressed up lately, so I had lots of fun picking out my dresses.
When choosing my dresses, I thought about the "rules" of what to wear to a wedding. If you ask me, there are only 2 rules:
1. Do not wear white, ivory, or cream.
2. Do not wear anything too revealing.
Weddings are a great opportunity to dress up and look and feel cute, but they should be all about the bride. So although I have been dying to wear this ruffle sleeve white dress, I did not even consider packing it because weddings are times where white is absolutely off limits. The bride should be the only one who has the right to stand out in a beautiful white dress!
I think rule number 2 is self explanatory. Like I said, a wedding is all about the bride. Not a time to be showing off too much skin.
I don't think these rules are too restrictive. I chose some dresses that I loved and paired them with neutral shoes and fun accessories! I do love wearing white, but I also love wearing bright colors, as you will see in my photos below!
Rehearsal Dinner Dress- Brooke Eyelet Swing Dress
Bridal Brunch Dress- Corey Lynn Calter Dress
Wedding Ceremony/Reception Dress- CeCe Tie Sleeve Shift Dress
This fun bride certainly shined in her beautiful dress! What do you think about my two rules? Agree? Disagree? Do I need to add any more? Thanks so much for reading!
