Wedding Bells: What I Wore

A little under two weeks ago, my sister got married, and I thought I’d share some pictures with you – the dress I wore, the shoes, the hair, all that good stuff…

We started the day off at the bride’s family’s house for a traditional house ceremony.  We had a floral archway in the front yard where we took turns posing for pictures with the bride.  My boyfriend and I blew up two life-size (well, life-size compared to me 😉 ) bride and groom balloons to flank either side of the archway.  That’s me in the green dress standing on the lawn!

My sister and I went to the hair salon bright and early that morning at 7 AM to have our hair done.  My hairdresser couldn’t help but comment every 10 minutes how much hair I had.  It took 36 bobby pins to whip all my hair into this bun.  I had a Mia Thermopolis moment at the hair salon when he was struggling to wrap a hair elastic around my massive head of hair and the elastic just snapped.

After the house ceremony, we all loaded into our cars and drove to our local church for the wedding ceremony.

The bride and groom rode in style:

Here’s a closeup of the dress I wore as maid of honor.  If you’ve been following my blog, you’ll know that this dress was part of an ASOS haul I did back in March .  In that haul, I was actually debating returning this dress for a number of reasons, but after trying it on one more time, I ended up deciding to keep the dress.

Last but not least: the reception.  The reception was a rustic themed, outdoor reception in a gazebo surrounded by water.
