Being a bridesmaid can be expensive. At it’s root you think there’s only one dress, and one event you have to buy. But there’s nothing more wrong when it comes to weddings. The shower, the bachelorette, the rehearsal, sometimes a brunch, sometimes 10 showers. But I’ve decided I’m only buying one for my best friends wedding which happens in just a few days . . . so for this weeks wedding related post I wanted to show how I remixed 1 dress for all the wedding events – minus the wedding, of course.
The first look is a simple and fun one that can be worn to showers or a bridal luncheon/brunch. A shower or a brunch is the perfect time to wear a hat. I pull one out for almost every shower I attend. If you’re a bridesmaid, the shower is probably where you’ll be doing most of the work so you’ll want to be comfortable. That’s why I kept the look simple, and paired it with my favorite wedges.
Adding a blazer to the look takes it to sort of business professional look – in regards to a wedding that makes it perfect for the rehearsal dinner. You’ll probably be walking down the aisle before the dinner, but still in this outfit. So be sure and wear similar shoes to what you’ll be wearing the day of the wedding.
The bachelorette party is all about being glam, and I think we all agree that there’s nothing more glamourous than a red lip. I kept my accessories fairly simple, and added some comfortable shoes. Walking from bar to bar wouldn’t be fun all decked out and 5 inches taller.
What do you normally wear to bridesmaid events?
