I have a few iPhone snaps that I wanted to share to highlight the Lilly Pulitzer dress I wore to the wedding. I literally bought it in March in Florida over spring break knowing I would wear it in June for this wedding. It comes in white, too, in case you're a bride-to-be or just want a beautiful white dress for summer.
The gold beading is sooooo gorgeous. The peep hole back is really fun and unique, too. I received a ton of compliments all night. It's a TTS shift dress, and I am wearing a 6. The color is a bright coral, but I honestly think the color isn't nearly as pretty online as it is IRL. So, here are some very non-profesh selfies and iPhone pics to give you an idea of how pretty this Lilly is!!
^^Mike had already left for groomsman duties, but fortunately the hotel had a great full-length mirror. LOL
These are my wedding shoes! I bought them 3 years ago from a J. Crew online sale for $90. These BP wedges are identical to mine, but they are in silver. Here are some equally glittery options:
The back was a little perilous to hook by myself, but I got it! LOL
This is my wedding lip stain. We are about to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary, so it is obvious that it lasts forever! A little goes a long way, because I wear this lip color out all the time on the weekends! You never have to re-apply. That was what made it perfect for our wedding. I never had to stop what I was doing to fix my lips!
My earrings are old from our rehearsal dinner in 2015, but here are some similar statement earrings:
Their wedding ceremony was absolutely beautiful!
Jacque wore her mother's wedding gown, re-made into strapless. It was stunning! She was truly the happiest bride I have ever seen!!
Party bus time with the most handsome date!
Love these gals! Drumline friends and wives of drummers.
Me, Katie, Maggie and Sarah.
Maggie used Rent the Runway for her awesome Halson Heritage dress! Her dress, the "Blush Imprint Dress" by HH has the cutest scoop back. Love!
Lee got to play with the band during one of the songs! I love how Mike and his NDDL friends continue to play the drums, even after graduating from ND in 2006. It's so special and such a huge part of their lives.
^^I met Kyle early on at Notre Dame! He, too, was a drummer with Mike, and he was also the mascot for Notre Dame, the iconic leprechaun! He's kind of a big deal :) Crazily enough, I also student taught his younger brother! Small world! Also, Kyle was one of the best dressed men at the wedding-- he rocked a light blue seersucker striped suit. Such a perfect summertime suit option.
Lee's smile says it all!
Again, Jacque could not have been more beautiful, happy and stunning! We are so happy for these two!
With the glowing bride en route to the reception!
This dress, admittedly, was a splurge. I am such a huge proponent of Lilly Pulitzer, and I know her pieces last (literally) for decades. However, I am linking some other coral options below in different price points. Happy shopping!
Loving this Anthro one on sale for $182.
What is your favorite choice of these coral hues?
