We attended a wedding this weekend. My boyfriend’s family had a BBQ two weeks ago and he finally got to see his cousin, who he hadn’t seen in 8 or so years. They kept talking about all the things they did as kids and young teens, and I guess his cousin felt nostalgic to see him that he ended up inviting us to his wedding. It was a very last minute thing, but David was excited to be invited.
We didn’t get much details about the ceremony or the theme, we found out it was 2 hours away just two nights before and that it was a semi casual wedding. I didn’t have much time to pick a dress, and I wasnt really sure what to wear, but ended up choosing a nice body con dress, hoping it would be dressy enough for a wedding.
The dress is from Sirens and it was $25 CAD. David was wearing a nice light blue shirt so I wanted a blue dress. I loved this one, I’m not much into body con dresses but I loved the pattern and the neck cut. My mom got me a nice white cardigan to go with it, and I’m glad she did as I’ve been looking for one to wear to work. I like the length and the nice design. The cardigan was from Anna Belle, I believe, and it was 19.99CAD. And my heels are from H&M, I think they were $26 CAD or so.
My makeup was more dramatic than usual for the occasion. I used my tarteist in bloom palette for my eyes, I wore my new wet and wild foundation, the tarteist contour palette and colourpop matte lipstick.
We came to find out that the wedding was actually very casual. I was one of the few who were very dressy, along with the bridesmaids. Most women were wearing casual dresses and sandals and some men wore black jeans. As soon as we got there, I regreted my heels as it was an outside wedding and there was just grass..great. I wish I knew cause I would’ve brought flats, I don’t wear heels as it is but opted for them thinking it’d be better for a wedding. But it was a lovely ceremony, closest friends and family only, so it was very nice of them to include us. I’m hoping that they keep in contact as they were very close once and seems like they could have a good time.
Thank you guys for reading. I hope you have a great week!
