It’s that time of the year when the sun is starting to shine, everyone is in good spirits and best of all wedding season is starting. I for one am well excited, loads of my friends got engaged last year or the year before so their weddings are coming up. One of my friends also recently got engaged and is having their engagement party soon but sadly I won’t be able to go as I will be sunning myself on holiday, although her engagement party sounds more my type of thing… A barbecue with all her friends and family, celebrating the fact that her and her fiancée are finally going to tie the knot after 10 years together!
It got me thinking if I were to have a barbecue engagement party what would I wear to it and I came up with the below outfit…
I just love this dress, it says feminine and summery all in one plus it’s not over the top for something as low-key as a barbecue but it’s still gorgeous enough to be the centre of attention. I also love that you can really dress it up with a nice pair of sparkly heels and a nice little clutch bag to keep your essentials in. Then something every bride to be needs to have is her diamonds, I chose some gorgeous Vashi studs and one of the Vashi engagement rings which would be the ring I would choose for myself or something very similar; the reason for loving the ring so much is because I have always loved the halo style of ring, I love the band and the way its very elegant looking while also not looking as traditional as other styles of rings.
It then got me thinking about what would be the perfect outfits to wear to the two weddings I have coming up this summer and I settled on the outfits below.
I went with the bright orange dress with the gold shoes and bag as the first wedding is right in the heart of summer so I think it’s really fitting, the second wedding is at the end of summer as things are starting to cool down a little, so I feel like the blue with the silver just works well. I didn’t add any jewellery because I’m quite a creature of habit so I wear really sentimental pieces on a day-to-day basis.
What would be your perfect wedding outfit or perfect engagement ring?
