Wedding Guest Style Guide

  • Wedding Wednesday

I’ll be honest. I feel like this post doesn’t ever apply to me. Like…. EVER. I’ve attended approximately 2 weddings in the last 7 years as a GUEST while most people attend about 7 per year on average!! It’s crazy! I’m ALWAYS shooting the weddings that I attend and that normally dictates my attire. However, I do know that there are a lot of unknowns when it comes to how casual or how formal a wedding guest’s attire should be. It can be nerve-wracking to show up to a wedding in a floor length gown and then realize that only ONE other guest is dressed that formally!

Don’t Forget Your Dress Practice!

  • Wedding Wednesday

This may sound like a no-brainer but if it was a no-brainer, I wouldn’t be blogging about it! There are a lot of brides who have NEVER put on their dress outside of the dress shop!! I was the weirdo who tried on her dress like every evening because I was so excited!! However, my dress was really easy to put on. I could put it on by MYSELF! It had one simple ZIP in the back and that’s it! However, there are a lot of dresses that require much more than just a simple ZIP! These are the dresses that I’m referring to today in this post!

The Importance of Having a “Person”

  • Wedding Wednesday

So you’re planning for your big day. It’s just around the corner and you’re wondering if you’re forgetting anything!! Well, I hate to say it but you probably are. It’s just normal for a bride to forget something and that’s ok. Your friends, family and wedding team will make sure that they have everything covered so that you can enjoy the day. However, if you’re like me and did a lot of the wedding planning yourself, you’re going to need HELP. We worked with Anna Burke Events for our own wedding and she was amazing! She keeps everyone in line and she never misses a beat!!
