Wedding Wear

There are new happenings in the world of Brit!

First thing: I started my last year of college last week and my classes are going great, so far I have all As on my assignments, let's hope I can keep it that way. A few days ago I did a 6 mile run, which was pretty solid. Yesterday I did a 2 mile swim and 4 mile run, both pretty solid but I'm hurting today! 

Second thing: I have a boyfriend! He's super great. We've known each other for 3 years and always had that super comfortable, poop joke telling sort of friendship. But now that we're together, I can't imagine any guy being more perfect. I'm pretty dang happy.

I will be going to his sister's wedding this Saturday, and after a mild, 30 second freak-out about what I should wear, I decided to do a blog post on what to wear if you are attending a wedding. I am in no way an expert on this, considering I've only been to a few weddings that I can remember, but here are some simple rules to follow when deciding what to wear to a wedding.

Be Appropriate
I don't care if you're a single girl trying to snatch a groomsman, your skirt/dress should be no shorter than two inches above the knee, should be fitted but not tight, and your shoulders should be covered. 

Don't Draw Attention to Yourself
Do a fun color, but not a crazy pattern. If you wear something that is too loud, that might take attention away from the purpose of the event. Don't be THAT girl.

Don't Wear White, Black or Red
The bride wears white, black is for a funeral and red is just too sexy for a family event.

This is the dress I will be wearing, yes I have already worn it to a wedding, but in this case I am ok with recycling outfits. Besides, it's my favorite dress ever and I never get to wear it! 

happy styling! 


  1. Amen to this!! Conservative and classy. AND don't wear shoes that you can't walk or stand in as it will show on your face! Lucky young man to have you on his arm! I will get the details from Sara :) Missing my Britt!
