A Holiday Wedding

A Holiday Wedding


On January 5th, I get to watch one of my best friends get married. He and I met while working at our current job, where he and his fiance both worked. I quickly became friends with the two of them, because everyone where we work get along. 

They're having a beautiful night wedding at a plantation where they're both from, which leads to a little confusion of what to wear. Night weddings require a bit fancier dress than day weddings, especially for a typical southern plantation wedding. 

I'll dawn a Little Black Dress or LBD, tan heels and pearls, with a cardigan to cover my shoulders when we're at the ceremony. Since it's the weekend after New Years, I'll probably thrown on a scarf and curl my hair (getting crazy over here y'all!). I'm not sure what my date will be wearing, but he's asked me to go shopping with him, so I'm sure we'll pick something out soon enough. 

I'm so glad that they have invited me to go to their wedding, they're the cutest couple I've ever seen and they really do make each other happy. 

Have you been to a wedding recently? What's your favorite time to see a wedding (noon, afternoon, night)?

  2. That outfit is AMAZING!!! My mother, bless her heart, cannot for the life of her understand why people wear black to weddings. "It's not a funeral! You damn New Yorkers" and all that jazz. Not only is black classic, but that pop of red is really chic. You'll look great!

    (Plus.... January 5th is prrrretty much my favorite day every :p)
