Let wedding season begin!! I attended my first wedding of 2015 this past weekend to celebrate one of my high school friends marry her high school sweetheart. I had a blast seeing my posse from high school and dancing the night away!! I even managed to not completely look like a fool while two-stepping….at least I hope so.
Earrings: Kendra Scott (similar) | Clutch: J. Crew (similar)
How comfortable are my shoes? I know that normally, by the end of a night of dancing, my shoes will be under the table and not on my feet, but it’s worth the try… (I am still on the hunt for a comfy pair of dressy heels. If you have found some, please let me know!!)
What’s the venue – do I need to bring a shawl to cover up during the ceremony? I think a lot of this comes from growing up Catholic, but when I attend a wedding ceremony at a church, I just feel more comfortable if I have a shawl to cover my shoulders….but this could just be me.
Do I need to bring a date? I am not dating anyone right now right now and it can be stressful to bring someone to a wedding, especially if it is out of town. If I know a group of friends are going to be at the wedding, I will probably skip bringing a date. I think it’s a win-win. I save myself some awkward moments and questions about my date and I am saving the bride and groom from inviting one more person they don’t really know.
What are your thoughts on wedding attire, etiquette and everything in between? Have any fun wedding destinations you have been to or are planning to go to? (Psstt…I’m going to Delaware in May).
P.S. As you are reading this, I am currently in NYC (one of my favorite cities)… see a full re-cap of the trip here on Monday. If you can’t wait until Monday, you can follow along on Snapchat and/or Instagram @EmilySGSB
