Summer wedding...

A couple of weeks ago, my cousin got married at Ansty Hall and Mark and I were invited to the ceremony. The location was absolutely beautiful and the ceremony was lovely, very relaxed but very moving. I am a complete sap when it comes to weddings, I always get all over-emotional and end up crying. I dread to think what I will be like at my best friend's wedding in a couple of weeks! I managed to find this gorgeous Coast dress in my size on ASOS and I was absolutely thrilled. The colour is right up my street and I love the top too. Thanks to my pasty porcelain complexion, it looks like it is strapless, but without any of the faff or hoisting that a strapless dress requires! ;) I did have a pashmina type shawl with me too but I'm not sure what had happened to it in these photos!

Dress: Coast Mineraux dress, fascinator: Accessorize, bag: ASOS, shoes: New Look
I managed to get my hair cut the day before the wedding by my awesome hairdresser (go and see Thomika at Blushes in Cheltenham for the best haircut around!) and my blow dry managed to stay intact until the next day- result! I had such a faff trying to find a fascinator in the right colour but struck lucky in the Accessorize sale a couple of days before the wedding. The tendrilly bits were a bit annoying but the colour was a perfect match in the end!


The detailing on the dress was absolutely beautiful. I love the pleating on the bodice and the lace panels really give it that something extra special (can you tell I love this dress yet?!) These shoes were a bargain from New Look and matched my bag perfectly. I used to wear a lot of New Look clothes and shoes but other than this pair, I haven't been that impressed with their shoes recently. Is it me or do they just feel really cheap?


Gratuitous soppy couple photo, doesn't Mark look cute in his suit? 



What would you wear to a summer wedding?

Your hair is looking gorgeous here and that last photo of you and Mark is so cute! I'm going to my friends' wedding tomorrow and still haven't decided what I'm going to wear. I struggle with formal/"dressy" dressing but I've managed to narrow it down to three dresses!

Awww, you look lovely Maria! I love the colour on the dress and the fascinator goes so well, it's very pretty. I've always tended to wear the same thing as you to a wedding, something pretty that I feel comfortable in. Lovely dress and I hope you had a good time! - Tasha xxx

That dress was made for you. I love it on your milky/ pale/ pasty skin.
