Wedding Bells (and Brocade?)

Spring 2013 brings a fresh wave of weddings for the hubs and I, reminiscent of 2009 when we cut our honeymoon short so I could serve as maid of honor for my bf 2 weeks after our own wedding (and then did so again happily in May for my other bf), and in between attended a myriad of 'I Do' dances. This time around, we are a little older (and wiser?) and are in dire need of an uplifting excuse to dress up and party.

My dear friend since 8th grade gets married in April, hubby's groomsman gets hitched in May (in Napa!), college roomie ties the knot in July, and best guy friend since Middle School walks down the aisle in August. This schedule requires repeating at least once, since Hubby's law firm is still not quite revenue producing (and the whole point of my new job is to save the money!)
One Shoulder Misha Dress from J.Crew- tangerine is fresh for evening with pewter heels and accessories
The vintage feel of this brocade Anthropologie number is fabulous, with a bright necklace and shoes to breakup the black
Blue is a nice alternative to the LBD, and this mini by Aqua is super wallet friendly priced under $200

Cynthia Rowley brocade frock that I love (image from Zappos.com- free shipping!)

Note: ALWAYS check what color the bridesmaids are wearing to avoid an unintentional (and then uncomfortable) mistake resulting is glares from the bridal party, and elderly aunts asking you who you are and how you know the bride all night. 

(And be sure you get to the polls today!)



  1. College roomie can't wait for you to party at her wedding in July (no doubt looking fabulous)!!!

  2. I once worn the EXACT same dress as the bridesmaids in a wedding, and I was not in the wedding. It was an Anthro dress. Go figure. And at my own wedding, my co-worker wore a very similar dress to my maid of honor's wedding. Everyone thought she was my sister! Its all fun though, if you can put the awkwardness aside.

  3. Sounds like lots of fun times ahead. Looks I better clear my too crowded calendar for "pajama parties" with my favorite little angel.
