Photos from the weekend

This past weekend my husband and I attended a family wedding.   The church ceremony was lovely and short, perfect.  The Pastor have an interesting speech on how marriage is like a sturdy chair.  The Pastor had one of the groomsmen sit on the chair and then had him carry it out during the procession.  That chair bit came back when the groomsman and bridesmaid entered with the wedding party at the reception.  He carried her in on a chair.  It was quite funny!  The reception was beautiful and fun.  I think everyone really did enjoy themselves, some… maybe a little too much with the open beer and wine bar.

Here are some pictures from the weekend

Wedding Guest Outfit

This Saturday I will be attending a wedding as a guest.  This is the first time in about 4 years that I’ve been a guest instead of in the wedding party.  So, I get to have the fun of actually picking out what I want to wear and how I want to do my hair!  But, like normally I’ve decided to wait until now, 3 days before, to figure out what I’m going to wear!  This outfit is something that would be fun to wear to the wedding but would probably wouldn’t work since its going to be about 50 degrees.  But that really doesn’t matter much, since the last wedding I stood up in was on New Years Day, there was snow, it was 20 degrees out and we were wearing this dress (but in purple) outside taking pictures for about an hour. I was freezing!

On to the outfit!

Dress | Earrings | Necklace | Bracelets | Heels | Hair | Nails | Rings |Clutch

Hair – I don’t do my hair… at all, so a wedding is a great time for me to splurge and pay to get my hair done.  Hopefully it will look a little like this, but with extensions because my hair is above my shoulders.
Dress – So freakn’ Cute! and it looks comfy but still dressy!
And because I love to go overboard on my fashion boards,  Some ideas of things to take for the night stay after the wedding, plus day after outfit idea

after wedding

PJs | Sunglasses | Hat | Tunic | Leggings | Shoes | Bag

Ok, I went a little overboard and now I want all of these things from Forever 21!
