Wedding Season…

Summer this year has been the season for weddings for our friends and family!  The last two weekends my husband and I have had two weddings to attend in two different states! I always love attending weddings, it is so fun to see the venue, decor, and see what everyone is wearing!  I love a good excuse to dress up, especially since I stay home with my daughter I don’t really have a good reason to wear my heels and do my makeup every single day.

The first was a wedding in Maryland and my husband was a groomsman for one of his college friends.  The wedding was beautiful and the venue was on a golf course which had beautiful views of a lake with a fountain right in the middle! The guys all wore their uniforms and they looked great!

The second wedding we attended was in Philadelphia in a beautiful Cathedral right in the heart of downtown! We had such a great time and it was so great to see some of Erics old friends and neighbors!

I think it is so fun to pick dresses and spend the extra time to do your hair and makeup when you are a guest for a wedding, especially when you have a babysitter! The brides and grooms are spending so much time and money to put on such a huge event in their lives and I think that it is only appropriate to put some effort in and look nice when you go to someones wedding.  It always boggles my mind when I see people who don’t really dress up!  You don’t have to spend a lot of money either so many different stores have options that you can dress up or wear the same dress multiple times but switch up the jewelry.  If you have a lot of weddings to go to it can also be a daunting task to find something different for each event.  If I don’t have something to wear I always ask one of my sisters or a friend if they have something that I can borrow for the evening.  That’s what I did for the first wedding, I wore a dress that my sister had and only wore once to a different event.  I dressed it up with a necklace and a pair of my favorite shoes and I was good to go.  The second outfit was a new dress, but it is a classic black dress with a unique neckline that I will be able to wear over and over again, all i will have to do is switch up my hair and jewelry and it will give a completely different look to the outfit.  My advice would be to invest in great shoes and a couple of basic pieces that will match with many different outfits and you will save yourself money in the long run.  Checking places like Target and TJMaxx is a great way to find trendier pieces without paying the expensive department store prices and you wont feel bad only getting a couple uses out of the item!

Congrats to the happy couples we had such a great time!
