Wedding season is here and in full swing! My Facebook feed is blowing up with wedding photos and I don’t know about y’all, but I’ll be quite the busy lady this year with 4 more to attend. I guess I’m getting to that age where everyone is settling down and tying the knot but hey, it’s a beautiful thing and I’m always up for a party. As you already know, I’m a girly girl and I always get super excited when planning my outfit for a wedding, so today I’m talking about my favorite wedding essentials!
Everly maxi dress (similar here) // Kate Spade sunnies // similar gold clutch // nude ankle strap heels
Maxi dresses are great because they can really be dressed-up or down. I wore this coral number to Ryan’s cousin’s wedding in Florida. The venue was a golf club but the ceremony was outside so I didn’t have to get too fancy. I paired it with my nude heels, a statement necklace, and a metallic clutch. If you want to go a little more casual, you could opt for wedges or a pretty belt to accentuate your waist. I have yet to go to a black-tie wedding, but I can tell you that I’m dying to wear a fancy long gown for something… anything!
I love a good lace dress. They’re classy, feminine, and great for weddings any time of the year. And if you’re headed to a southern soiree, why not whip out your favorite Lilly dress? The bright colors and fun patterns are perfect for summer outdoor weddings.
A pair of nude heels will take you a long way. The oh-so-versatile ankle strap sandals will go with just about any dress that you have- just make sure to get a pedi! Going to a beach wedding? Trade in the heels for some wedges or Jack Rogers.
I would also invest in a good quality, neutral clutch. I’ve gotten TONS of use out of this Kate Spade gold clutch- it gets bonus points for the little chain strap. In my clutch you will find lipstick, my mini hairbrush/mirror, mints, and bandaids (to save those poor feet at the end of the night)!
If you’re headed to an outdoor wedding, don’t forget your sunnies! Here are some that I’ve had my eye on.
And last but not least, please don’t wear white (and yes, cream/off-white still counts)!! My friend Katie’s wedding is just over 2 weeks away and I cannot wait to be her bridesmaid and enjoy the special day with her- I know it will be absolutely amazing! What are some of your wedding day must-haves?
