We’re in full swing on wedding season which happens to be one of the most romantic and magical times! I love seeing my brides as they prepare for their weddings and I also love hearing the stories of reception-goers themselves. We all know the couple is the “star” of the day, but it’s important to feel confident and carefree as a wedding guest, too. If you’re uncomfortable, the dance moves won’t flow as well and you may not indulge in that piece of cake ;-).
Here’s how to feel your best as a wedding guest
(and some fashion inspo for the next celebration)
1.Don’t shop last minute. There’s nothing worse than feeling stressed about finding something and then risking the possibility of not finding an outfit you’re comfortable in. Take a few weeks, possibly even a month, to find something you know will make you shine! This also gives you time to amp up your skincare and self-love routine before attending events.
If you have no choice but to shop last minute, a Little Black Dress is the perfect go to:
- Set small goals. You’re probably one of two people: 1 being the person invited to all of your friends weddings and not having a spare minute to breath during the season. 2 being that you have only a handful of wedding per year to see all of your friends. Both include added pressure as the season goes on. Lots of pictures are being taken and catch-up questions being asked. 4-6 weeks before the event, set small goals to eat healthier, increase water intake, work out more or just add an extra walk into your day. Doing this during the week between weddings, or leading up can be huge on your confidence for the day!
Add confidence with color and mix things up:
- Don’t sweat the small stuff. Skin not in check? That time of the month came YESTERDAY? A great morning turned into a huge fight with your partner? Whatever the situation, keep vibes high on wedding days. The couple deserves to feel the love and everyone’s mood helps bring that together. Smile hard, take a deep breath, have that extra cup of coffee and truly enjoy yourself!
Try out the jumpsuit trend to add sass to the evening:
Here’s a fun fact, all of the dresses on this post are from Amazon! I’ve been really inspired by this concept and decided to dig in to see if I could truly find something for a wedding; and I did!
