What To Wear: Garden Wedding

March 21, 2017

Nothing makes me happier then getting an invitation to a wedding in the mail. Now that a majority of our friends have already gotten hitched, what used to be a flurry of “Save The Date!” announcements has morphed into “It’s a Girl!” Not that I’m complaining, both are equally (if not more on the latter) exciting, but a giant party that involves a dance floor is just plan f-u-n, plus everyone gets dolled up—no surprise I’m a fan of that. 

Last year was a rough one, not a single wedding on the calendar. I found myself craving wedding cake and even watched Wedding Crashers to fill the void. Cue the violin. But things are looking up for 2017, we’ve received not one, but TWO invites in the mail—can you hear the bells? So I figured I’d tackle the topic we’re all starting to wrap our brains around, dressing for a wedding.
Spring weddings always seem to be outside amongst everything that is blooming, and rightly so. While the sun is shining, there’s definitely a chill in the air which means long sleeves and an extra layer are always a good idea.

When it comes to shoes, always find out what the location is like before diving into your outfit—nobody wants to hobble in the dirt while wearing stilettos, even worse ruin your Jimmy Choos. If it’s in the middle of a vineyard or on the beach, you might want to consider flats. Here are the four pairs I rely on consistently—nude heels/sandals (shown above), black pumps, ballet flats and sandals.

Accessories are one way you can have a little fun with your look and give a nod to the location, season and theme of the wedding. Island wedding? Grab something straw. Garden wedding? A hit of florals. Black tie? A little shine. Here are some favorite finds…

Our first one is this weekend in a greenhouse, I can hardly wait. I picked out something that feels so idyllic for the season and a garden-like setting from a line I recently discovered—Korovilas.
