Wedding Stripes | What I Wore

A Wedding Guest

Happy Friday! Today’s outfit is quite special because it is what I wore to my first wedding. I’ve been waiting for someone o get married just so I can get dressed up and celebrate their love and when my mom’s friend daughter was getting married I finally got a chance to and now I get to show you what I wore. So no long intro this time because I just want to tel you already but if you want to see a behind the scenes and how I got ready then I have the video below or you can just see everything in pictures.

For my outfit I wore this dress from Forever 21+. I bought it quite a while ago but never had a reason to wear it. I featured it over my haul in the summer and since then it has been hung in my closet until I brought it out for this occasion. It has black and white horizontal stripes which you would think would look really bad on but for me it seemed okay and I love the stripes at the moment. I am in awe with the skater style skirt on it and makes me feel like a princess spinning in it. It has a high neck so no need for a necklace but an open back which I am liking. I use to be so self conscious and never wear something like this especially something that showed my arms but now that I’ve grown and gained confidence I get to wear things I never would have imagined going out in but look at me now. The rest of the details I kept pretty simple by throwing o a few bracelets, my bag which I tied a red ribbon to for fun and since there wedding colors were red it would be fun to incorporate it in and to also match my rosy pinkish red lip. Then my shoes are new and I bought just for this dress and I was needing a pair of wedge heels as my old ones were worn to death. They were pretty easy to walk in and lasted me through the night. I love the cutout design and peep toe too which made it really elegant and pretty. Last I just left my curls down and finished it with a white bow to match the dress.

That’s what I wore to the wedding. I really enjoyed that and it’s the first proper wedding I’ve been to at my age. The last one I went to was a kid and I was the flower girl. I have a few cousin’s planning their wedding but they are still pretty far so this was the actually first proper church wedding I’ve been to and actually understand it. I’ve been wanting to go to one to dress up and just see the whole thing happen in real life. It did end up raining really hard and was actually sprinkling while I was doing the pictures at the church courtyard but I’m not sure if you can really tell. I guess that means good luck right? I can’t describe to you the emotion I felt seeing the doors open and revealing the bride and seeing her and her dress for the first time. It was just so pretty and watch her walk down the aisle. Then when the vows hit I felt like it was so beautiful. I’m so happy I got to witness that and it being my first wedding that was a proper one. The reception was far from perfect and everyone was really angry but it got solved and turned out okay. I even tried to catch the bouquet but I didn’t succeed which I think it is not time for me then. There was a photobooth and I had such a fun time getting my picture taken and using the props. I got a picture with the bride and groom in the end since they were so busy all day and I wanted to tell her she was my proper wedding but I was shy and didn’t. Then that was it and I went home. The overall lesson of this though was I want my own wedding and want to get married. It just seems so me and I would love every single second of it and the whole experience with family and friends and to celebrate together with my soulmate. I just need to find me a boyfriend and then a fiance and then get married. I do hope it happens as now all I want is a wedding and be married to my best friend. So that was my day at the wedding and my outfit. I did a get ready with me so if you want to see how I did my hair and makeup you can watch that here or below. So let me now if you’d like to see more get ready with me’s then I would love to do them. Hope you have a love filled day!
