Fun fact for you. I’ve been to hundreds of weddings.
Most of the time I’m behind the scenes organising the wedding but two weeks ago I got to watch my two friends walk down the isle with the stunning Yarra Valley in the background.
Every wedding to me is fabulous and is filled with magical moments. And don’t worry there are plenty of not so magical moments too. Believe me I’ve seen it all. Hissy fits over guests wearing the same thing, duplicate ceremonies separating those who don’t get along, dresses not fitting etc.
One of the perks of a wedding is getting dressed up to celebrate the occasion. For me, celebration is colourful and full of life so you will never catch me wearing black to a wedding. Nor white whilst on the topic. The bride gets to wear white on her wedding day, it’s one day where you don’t. So if you choose to wear white or cream to a wedding, I will judge you.
With Victoria being renowned for having four seasons in one day I oped for a dress that had sleeves in case it got cooler in the night. Also packed a black pashmina.
This stylish design features a surplice neckline, sheer floaty sleeves, fitted waistband with metal plate belt, draped skirt for a flattering fit, smocked panel on reverse for additional comfort and is lined. As I’m quite busty I wore a black singlet top underneath moreso for modesty. Without it I would have shown way too much boobage.
I matched my bag and earrings with the gold belt that came with the dress. I’d planned to wear wedges so I wouldn’t sink into the grass but in the rush of packing I completely forgot. Luckily I had my fav Wayne Cooper heels packed to wear with another outfit. You just can’t go wrong with simple black shoes.
