My lovely uni friends Cat and Mark got married at the end of May, on a beautiful early summer’s day in Syon Park.
Here’s what I wore… it was quirky, it was extremely me, and it made me really happy. And what better excuse to get dressed up than a wedding?!
Dress by the ever-amazing Contrariety Rose. You can buy your own version from her – it’ll shortly be listed on her Etsy shop.
Petticoats in navy and white by Hell Bunny from Tiger Milly.
Shoes (which were commented on all day long by guests of every age, and were just as amazing as I thought they’d be when I bought them) by Irregular Choice.
Hair colour by Directons, a combination of Midnight Blue and Atlantic Blue.
Jewellery, by me, sort of. I bought the black pearl neckace on holiday in Wells-next-the-Sea, and my bracelet was a birthday present last year from one of my best friends. The anklet came from Dubai and I have plans to customise it over the summer.
What’s your go-to outfit for wedding season?
I LOVE this! My heart used to sink when I got a wedding invite … having to dress up all stuffy. Now I just dress as me (including home made circle skirt and Hell Bunny petticoats) and have a whale of a time!
I LOVE your outfit, Carla. If I ever do a renew of my marriage vows, you HAVE TO COME WEARING THAT 🙂
Thank you Jenny! I did have a small giggle to myself when, looking around when we were seated for the ceremony, I realised I was the bride’s token alternative friend 😛 But one of her cousins was also in 50s get up so we did some petticoat ruffling together 😀
Your wedding outfit sounds AWESOME (and yes please, I would love to come if you renew your vows!!) xx
Gotta love irregular choice! Also love that frock!
😀 thought you’d approve Lotte!
Yes it’s different, but perfectly suited for a gloriously sunny wedding, and there was no danger of someone turning up in an identical outfit!
Hehehe this is very true!! 🙂
