All dressed up and nowhere to go

Helloooo lovely people,

Happy Tuesday, February 20th! No special day in general really, I just felt like documenting the date. But there are a few things about this date that I would like to point out: it is indeed NOT Christmas Day, so I am not sure why there is still snow on the ground today, it is literally probably the only day of the year that doesn’t have a made-up holiday, and last but not least, it is the friendly reminder that wedding season is coming up and you have nothing to wear.

The middle of March-September is the perfect time for engaged couples to finally tie the knot, ask for your gifts and money, and is officially the most expensive time during the year to have a wedding.. but hey, it’s your dream wedding not mine. If you were previously unaware that you are going to be invited to many weddings in the upcoming months, now you know. But don’t fret, the newlyweds really don’t want to pay for your meal, so sending a gift is more than sufficient. However if you are related to the person or like total BFF’s it is probably important that you attend, so I am going to give you some ideas of what to wear to these wedding extravaganzas.

Now I am still a youngin, so most of my friends are currently planning Spring Break trips to Cabo, not weddings.. but my inspiration for this post came from watching my mother struggle to find a dress to wear to an upcoming wedding (she also can’t decide on a damn rug for the living room, but I have given up helping her there). It is not easy finding an outfit to wear to a wedding since it cant be white, too tight, too low cut, too revealing, too bright, too fancy, or really anything that would show up the bride. But I have done some intense digging to bring you the best options for spring and summer weddings. 🙂

I hope you find the perfect wedding guest outfit.. because you don’t want to be the one that everyone whispers about when you shimmy a little too much out of that dress. I also hope you do the Cha Cha Slide countless times along with the Cupid Shuffle, because we all know no wedding is ever complete without those things. Until Thursday <3

Xo, Ciera
