Wedding Wear: Ahh, I Don’t Know What To Wear!!!

 

 

Part 2: How To Dress For Any Type Of Wedding…

Alright my lovely ladies, here goes round 2! Here are my last few tips of appropriate wedding wear.

Formal Wedding:

BCBG Strapless Pleated Gown - Nordstrom

 

Nordstrom – BCBG Strapless Pleated Gown, $338.00

Black-tie weddings are the most formal type of wedding there is.  Most black-tie events are night weddings, so personally I would suggest wearing a gown.  Also, big jewelry, a fancy handbag, some killer heels, and styled hair are great additions to any dress!

Semi-Formal Wedding:

Kate Spade Faye Strapless Jacquard Dress Neiman Marcus – Kate Spade Faye Strapless Jacquard Dress, $425.00

Also known as “dressy casual”, semi-formal weddings are not as formal as black-tie events, but are a step up from a casual wedding.  Wearing a short dress with either flat sandals or heels is an appropriate outfit.  Your hair and make-up for this type of event can either be worn naturally, like you do every other day, or you can dress It up a little if you want!

Casual Wedding:

Tinley Road Britt Keyhole Mini Dress - Piperlime Piperlime – Tinley Road Britt Keyhole Mini Dress, $64.00

The least formal of all weddings, casual weddings are usually daytime weddings.  For this, you can wear a summery sundress or even a skirt or pants with a nice blouse.  Paired with a nice pair of flats or a pair of low heels or wedges, you’ll be sure to catch everyone’s eye!

Well, now you’re ready to go to any type of wedding… Good luck beauties! I hope you guys found these tips on how to dress for a wedding helpful! Let me know what you think, or if you have anything to add! :)

Wedding Wear: Dos And Don’ts Of Dressing For A Wedding

Part One: Look Amazing While Sustaining An Appropriate Appearance

You're Invited! Now, What To Wear?

You’re invited! Now, what to wear?!

We all know the feeling… You get invited to a wedding for someone you haven’t seen in a few years and you have absolutely no idea what to wear, but you have to look amazing since it’s been so long since you’ve seen anyone. What do you wear? At some point, I think we have all felt like this, and to be brutally honest, it sucks big time! But what you don’t know, is how to fix it, and that’s the topic of discussion today: how to dress appropriately for a wedding.

 

Dos:

  • Wedding Invitation - You're Invited! De-code the invitation.  All right ladies, here’s your chance! Pull out your magnifying glass and play inspector gadget.  Make sure you look for any indication or hint about what type of occasion the event will be.  Typically, if the wedding is formal, the invitation will be on heavier paper.  Another hint that it is formal is a night wedding.  Even if the couple doesn’t spell it out for you, there are at least some clues for you!
  • Dress for the occasion.  Make sure you are dressed in appropriate attire for the type of occasion. (Hint, hint, don’t wear a sundress to a formal event!)
  • Wear fun colors.  Go ahead, have fun with it, get that cute mint dress, or that amazing purple skirt. Wear all kinds of fun colors, but make sure you don’t “steal the show” by wearing red or bright yellow (we want the attention on the bride!).

Don’ts:

  • Wear white. Never, under any circumstances, wear white to the wedding! Even if you find the Open Back Lace Wedding Dress - I HAVE To Have This! perfect dress that you love and can’t imagine wearing anything else, and it just happens to be white (that would happen…)! Trust me when I say this, ladies, just don’t do it!
  • Wear something you wouldn’t wear in front of your grandma. You have to keep in mind that the bride and groom are going to have their grandparents there, and other guests may have young children with them. Don’t wear anything revealing… Come on, its one night, you can do it!
  • Wear brand new shoes. Even if you just found the most amazing pair of heels that would look perfect with your dress… I promise, you will regret wearing them when your feet are throbbing before you even get to your seat at the ceremony!
  • Wear jeans. Like I said girls, its one night! Put on a pretty dress and get all dolled up for one night, and then you can go back to wearing your jeans everyday.

Sorry guys, I had to split this one up into two parts… There is just so much to say about wedding wear! But, stay tuned because part two is coming soon!

One Of My All-Time Favorite Treadmill Workouts!

We all know that intervals are the best way to lose weight (burn fat) while increasing your endurance at the same time… However, I know that personally, I am not all that fond of them! When I go for a run, I like to just set my pace and incline and go, if I think about it along the way I may change the speed or incline and I may not. It is my time to clear my mind, and in a way “relax” (I know… I sound crazy!). But, in an effort to tone up a little and increase my endurance, I have been trying out some interval workouts! So far, this one has been the hardest hands down! But, I actually really liked it! And, I definitely felt like I accomplished something HUGE when I was done! Here it is, I really encourage you to try it out and let me know what you think!

Want to try some of the other interval workouts I’ve done? Check out my Pinterest page! All of the ones I have tried are pinned on my “Thinspiration board!
