I've only ever been to a few weddings so I was really excited to choose an outfit for the wedding of my brother-in-law, Husband's brother, last week. Here's what I wore:
The dress I chose is from Chi Chi London, an online clothing store. They have an amazing selection of dresses, fit for any occasion. This isn't the first time I've ordered something from them; I bought my dress for Ladies' Day from Chi Chi London too. In fact, the dress I wore for the wedding is the same dress I wore to Ladies' Day but in a different colour. I loved how the dress fit so I knew I'd be comfortable wearing this black and cream dress to an all day wedding.
My shoes are from New Look and have the same pattern (well almost the same) of lace detail as the top half of this dress. They are pretty high but I've gotten used to walking in them and can run across carpet in them. As I was the designated driver, I took flat black pumps with me and changed in to those when the dancing started.
J'adore is definitely my favourite perfume for wearing to super special occasions. Make-up wise, I went quite natural with darker eye make-up. I would have liked to have gotten someone in to do my make-up but I left it too late to book anywhere and the wedding started at 2pm so I didn't have a lot of time to get ready by the time I had dropped the kids at school and done my weekly shop.
We were praying for the rain to stay off as we wanted a beautiful day for the bride and groom but also so I could wear my Lipsy faux fur coat Husband bought me for Christmas. The rain didn't stay off, sadly, but I did manage to wear my coat without it getting wet. And doesn't Husband look handsome in his tweed style kilt.
