I remember when it came time to plan my shower my bridesmaids and I pretty much had no idea what we were doing. I didn't even really want a shower to be honest, as I had nightmares of toilet paper dresses (shudder) and that scene from Bridesmaids where Kristen Wiig goes mental on everyone's ass.
Hilarious in a movie, but not so much for real life! Hah. But remember the other week when I talked about how weddings are family affairs and sometimes you need to compromise? This was one of those things. Anyway, we deviated a bit from the norm and decided to throw a “Jack & Jill” type shower (ie: males and females were invited). Fortunately my family and friends are freakin’ awesome, toilet paper dresses were banned, and we played Whose Hands Are Those, Bridal Beer Pong, and Wedding Taboo instead.
But back to the fashion part of this post... Because this dress already has banding around the bodice and cute eyelet lace detailing, I decided to keep the focus on the dress itself by forgoing a belt and accessorizing with just my jewellery. (PS see the turquoise wrap bracelet I’m wearing? I bought that in Saigon, Vietnam and it is one of my absolute favourite pieces! I love to buy jewellery as souvenirs when I’m travelling so that I can bring them out when I’m back home and accessorize with one of a kind items.) I chose to keep my makeup light but accented with pops of coral on my cheeks and lips to complement my statement necklace.
Be sure to come back next week for part three of my Wedding Wednesday series. I’ll be sharing my favourite bridal accessories and some more pictures from my wedding :)
