I have a lush wedding to attend this year and I’m already agonising about what not to wear!
I’m a dress girl through and through so I’ve been plagued by visions of floor sweeping, red carpet worthy gowns that would make celebrity fashionistas weep with envy. Herein lies the problem. It’s some one elses day. The spotlight should be so far away from you it hurts your fashion loving ego.
If you’re fortunate enough to have been invited to a wedding (or two) this year there is one golden rule to be followed, at all times;
Do not turn up on the big day in a floor sweeping white dress… in fact, try and avoid pure white if you can … even if the bride is wearing black and said white dress is so stunning your little fashion heart breaks…
Also, as an aside, check what colour the bridesmaids are wearing so you don’t end up in that awkward situation where everyone stares you out because you’re not following the bride up the aisle. How many times can you whisper “I’m not one of the bridesmaids!!” before it becomes seriously irritating (and life threatening… for the next person that asks).
Beyond these you’re free to indulge in the dress-o-rama that a wedding event brings and what better excuse than renting a dress?
I found these beauties on the GMD (Girl Meets Dress) website and I’m already salivating in anticipation!
Ok. I’m off to indulge! Don’t tell the bride!
