Yes, it’s almost four months later and I am still writing / blogging about my oh so fabulous big day or, shall I say, weekend.
I can’t help it, I tell you! It’s just another way for me to relive the planning, the moments – fashion and otherwise , the joy . . . everything. It all goes by too ridiculously quickly.
And, after a year of planning , in which preparation for said affair became a second full time job, I was bound to go through some serious withdrawal when, enfin, all was said and done. Those first couple of months post extravaganza and insane honeymoon were oh so sad, along the lines of weening off of a drug that offers the same rush as some serious adrenaline.
I am happy to report, however, that I have finally adjusted to living in the “real” world once again. But of course, every so often I do feel the need to revisit that magical weekend.
Which brings me to today’s post.
I realized recently that there are still some major fashion moments from the big weekend that I still haven’t shared with, you, my loyal readers. It is high time, therefore, to show you my rehearsal dinner ensemble.
My fashion strategy for the rehearsal dinner was as follows:
Since I knew that my wedding day look would be very traditional bride . . . white dress (with a little somethin’ somethin’ extra . . . as you know ), soft and dewy makeup, elegant and classic hair, fab. but understated shoes, I really wanted to kick things up a notch for the evening before festivities.
So juj it up I did. That pre-wedding eve was all about bright color, fun makeup, fierce hair . . . all so different from my wedding day look. If I do say so myself, I most definitely went for it. The dress . . . Alexander McQueen, cobalt blue, perfect draping and a plunging neckline. The shoes were and still are to die for . . .gorgeous and fierce Giuseppe Zanotti insanely high, black, strappy heels with some killer twists to boot a la gold heels and a fab. sculptural element. Think ruffles or rose petals. The hair and makeup . . . Old Hollywood all the way with pin curls, cat eyes and bright red lips. The jewels . . . gold, statement making, vintage (as you know by now, my favorite combination.)
See my look below . . .
Doesn’t my hubby look super cute and very fashionable, I might add.
My advice to brides-to-be and future brides-to-be, therefore, is to take a fashion risk the night before your wedding. Through in crazy colors, fierce makeup, statement jewels . . . . Create a look that is totally distinct from your wedding day ensemble.
I would love to hear about your thoughts on rehearsal dinner wear.
